kanye west mlk poem

*Kim Kardashian posting a video of her husband in middle school passionately reciting a poem to Martin Luther King, Jr.

The clip, which was uploaded to YouTube in 2012, claims to be from 1990, which means Yeezy would’ve been 12. In it, the young West reads a poem he wrote called “His Name Means Love.”

Kardashian shared it, saying she wished she had posted the minute-long clip a day earlier — on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

“A man who fought for freedom/ A man who fought for equality,” West says in the video, following his introduction. “Those who were against him/ Were too blind to see/ What this man was fighting for/ So Blacks, Hispanics, Jews and Asians could put their foot in the door/ Yes, we know that this man is great/ That’s why today we celebrate/ Everyone lifts their voice and sing/ For a man who wanted freedom to ring / Martin Luther King is who I’m speaking of/ A man whose name means love.”
