A course centered around the politics of Kanye West was introduced by the Washington University for its students not long ago. Just to end the course for the semester, Dr. Jeffrey McCune, the course's professor has introduced a new case study about mental illness for which Kanye West will be the focal point.
Professor McCune explained the idea behind the lecture saying....
'ultimately what I’m getting at in this lecture is not just about Kanye, it’s also about the larger notion of crazy and how we utilize it”.
He also added...
“I want to give people permission to be enraged. Give people permission to be upset, to be angry, to be frustrated. Give people permission to have moments where they break. Give people permission to have moments where they experience depression. I want to give them permission to have those moments without being characterized as being some type of deviant figure in the community. I don’t want to take away that experience and call it crazy. It’s reasonable, and it must be addressed with love, compassion, care, generosity.”
The lecture is open for free admission to the general at 6:00pm Washington time at the Washington University.
*seriously, Kanye West!
