You are the first black person I've ever heard say they've never been accused of acting white at some point for stepping out of the norm You are either a unicorn or lying through your teeth imho.
Nope !! he is not the only one, but there you go causally dismissing other folks experiences only your own is legit.
You completely distorted the article to make it say that learning is acting white. That's how these stereotypes start. One person distort a Truth and everyone runs with it , then before you know it, it becomes a euphemism

This is the reason Kanye' West is garnering attention - look at it like this....
Starts twitter account in 2010.
Makes first post 2014.
Makes subsequent 129 posts in the past 10 days striking right at the heart of the ego and the political arena.
THIS IS HIS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN WE ARE WITNESSING FOLKS - HE WANTS IT.
I mean, I don't doubt that the reports of him going through mental struggles wasn't true. And, a few of his on stage rants sound rambling and off. That also can be a sign of substance abuse. However, saying that either one would cause a black man to support Candice or Trump or is the likely cause is pretty offensive in it's own right. Think about what's being implied there.

well kanye does say a ton of things that would make you question his mental state. ben shapiro had a very similar take on the right warming up to kanye as i do, scroll down kanyes twitter posts and tell me that he doesn't sound a little bat s*** crazy. if i was pro trump i would distance myself as much as possible from him.
While I don't agree with the extent of cultural Marxism that you might ascribe to the left here in the US, I think there are elements of truth to it existing in identity politics and many liberal orgs. I see it in people and their statements in my work life, which is in a liberal org. Yes, it's made many less critical people sort others into these monolithic identity classes. Then, related unassailable and incomprehensible identities and related lived experience that not only ostensibly cannot be understood by others, but also this "class consciousness" makes white people or males less aware or virtous. It's the new original sin.

Independent thought, individuality is an anathema to the mob mentality of the left.
Cultural Marxists want you as the collective, not as the individual. They want to sort everybody into piles based on color, sexuality, gender etc. so when there is a gay person who likes guns or a black woman who has conservative opinions they treat it as a heresy to their ideology. They are the modern priesthood of the 21st century.
