Ben Carson has spoken out and he is all for Kanye West running for president in 2020.

During a recent interview with ABC, the retired neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate expressed that he is willing to give West “a chance.”  “He’ll be able to explain things and see if he resonates with the people,” Carson said.

Charlamange, along to co-host, DJ Envy, repeatedly asked the reality star what was her “struggle”, ignorantly assuming that colorism isn’t a thing anymore because of all the advancements in the entertainment industry that have occurred.

The host, with the exception of Angela Yee, then proceeded to deduce Amara’s issue to being a problem that’s “all in (her) head”, even referencing the success of Cardi B. as evidence of La Negra’s delusion.
