    The thing about Kanye West reminds me of this dude on Facebook. We have a mutual friend. The problem is, he’s quick to whitesplain that Christianity has never done anything in violation of human rights in order to propagate itself.

    Anyway, the time in question was, we had this video of a woman who supported IS, including IS pimping Christian and Kurdish women. He was quick to point out how much she had internalized her male oppressors…but then he made a comment about her genitalia.
