Kanye West’s contentious statements have been trending all over social media and drew a massive amount of criticism, but former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, came to the artist’s defense.

There are those who are slamming West for recent “slavery” comments, but others like Rice are rallying behind the artist and his views. The political figure expressed her opinion on the “All Falls Down” rapper’s recent tweets and disputable remarks.

“First of all, I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about it… But I can say, people ought to be able to express their views. Not all of us have to think politically the same way. I’ve said to people sometimes, ‘You know, I’ve been Black all my life. You don’t have to tell me how to be Black,” Rice explained to Fox Business host “Mornings with Maria” Bartiromo.

Rice also added that “not all” Black people have to think the same or share similar views. Her statement comes from West’s tweet‘s about supporting President Trump and other conservatives.

“I think we need to recognize that in some ways the height of prejudice is to look at somebody and think you know what they think because of the color of their skin,” Rice relayed. “I hope we get to the point that people get to express their views and you can agree with them or disagree.”

Bartiromo wanted to know Rice’s thoughts on students’ varying political views in American Universities and the Stanford University professor responded, “I have students who come from a wide variety of political views… I always say to them, ‘Look, it’s not my job to tell you what to think. It’s my job to teach you how to hone your arguments.'”
