THERE ARE A FEW PEEPS WHO

THERE ARE A FEW PEEPS WHO FEEL THAT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO JUDGE. WE NEED TO REMEMBER WHETHER THAT LADY LOST HER LIFE DOING RIGHT OR WRONG IT'S NOT UP TO YOU OR I TO JUDGE HER FOR THAT!! TRUE MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD DO NOT JUDGE. WE LISTEN, LEARN AND REACT COMPASSIONATELY TO THOSE IN NEED. THE WOMAN IS DEAD!! DO NOT BE SUBJECT TO GODS WRATH BY DISRESPECTING HER MEMORY..NOBODY IS PERFECT!!!! WE ALL DO FRUITLESS THINGS..SHE BELONGS TO GOD AND SO DOES KANYE...KEEP YOUR MOUTH OFF OF THEM!!! THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES!!!! READ THE WORD OF GOD AND STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED..... MIMI

If you addressed me as cold I

If you addressed me as cold I must say you are wrong. I am shocked just like evryone else and I feel for Kanye. I cannot imagine what it feels like to loose my mother. But i also believe in conspiracy... Ye said the right thing on TV... Im just saying... Im sure we will never know... but I will always have that little thought in the back of my head!

I feel so bad for Kanye West.

I feel so bad for Kanye West. I actually grieve for him, although my pain is nothing compared to what he m ust be going through now. I applaud Dr. West for raising a son who loves his skin and who is confident and intelligent. She left a serious blueprint that we can follow on how to successfully raise black men in America. I love you Dr. West. And thank you for setting the example and elevating the conversation about the black family. Thank you. God bless you, your son, and your family.

My deepest condolences go out

My deepest condolences go out to Kanye and his entire family. I have never posted here before, but some of the negative and insensitive comments got me to thinking. There is always a way to turn a negative into a positive, and God doesn't make mistakes. Dr. West was a life long educator, and perhaps her death can still be used as an important lesson. I think it's very telling that a women in her position, even with all of her accomplishments, was getting some sort of cosmetic surgery. We don't yet know what it was for, but most likely it was an elective surgery to improve some part of her appearance. I think it illustrates the point that our society has become too caught up in appearances, and maintaining them at all costs. Dr. West, at 58, was not immune to public scrutiny, and wanting to look better. None of us are immune to it. My own mother, who turned 60 in August, has wanted to get surgery on her upper and lower eyelids for years now. And silly me has been encouraging her every step of the way, because I know it will make her feel better about herself. But the reality is, I don't give a damn how she looks - she's my mom, and I love her more than life itself. Dr. West's death is a huge lesson to me personally because of her age and her close relationship with her son. I don't expect it to change people's attitudes about cosmetic surgery, but if it can be a lesson to anyone else, even if it only touches only one other person, then she has not died in vain. Kanye, my deepest prayers continue to be with you and your family. I know from your music that you're a Christian, so remember that God doesn't make mistakes. He allows things to happen in this journey called life to teach us and others important lessons. Some people lose their mothers at early ages, and some aren't blessed to have a mother at all. You were blessed with one that loved you unconditionally, and trust me, when you almost died in that accident, I'm sure that her only prayer was that the Lord spare your life. And not only did he spare it, but also blessed you with an overwhelmingly successful career. Now find comfort in knowing that the same God that answered your mother's prayer for you in your time of need will hold you in his arms as you weather this storm.

Kanye, The whole world is

Kanye, The whole world is praying for you, especially in the Chi. We know how much you loved your mother. She was a shining example of success, single handedly raising a God-fearing man, getting a doctorate, being a well respected member of society. Her contribution to this world was so great. Take comfort in knowing that she loved you unconditionally and supported you in all your endeavors. Life will never be the same, but cherish the memories. Her legacy lives on through you and all the lives that you both have/will touch. Stay up.

What a tragic thing for the

What a tragic thing for the West family. Y'all should lay off the commenters talking about cosmetic surgery. On the new record Kanye himself talks about the ways "n****s with guns" rapping ignores the reality that kids grow up as wanna be gangstas who've never actually lost someone. Well, this is the same deal. we all talk about who is looking beautiful and fabulous and never talk about the way the real death and pain that women suffer from surgery which is way more dangerous than buying some new clothes and which is completely unnecessary if we start believing that everyone can be fabulous being who they are. Dr West's passing should be a wakeup call for all of us, especially those of us who want to look fabulous. She will be remembered by me everytime some smart girl I know talks about dropping Gs on surgery to risk her life to become someone else. No-one is talking about this sht and women are dying for no reason. Most of them aren't on the front page of the news. If you think that's insensitive then I hope you're going to be remembering Dr. West when Kanye's not a pop star anymore. She might not be young, but she's certainly black and fabulous and if the money-grubbing medical establishment had to educate people on the real risks she might still be here today. Peace and respect

She's in a much better place

She's in a much better place now than we are on earth. Kanye cherish the time you spent her and move forward in a way that will make her proud and know that she will always be with you. Stop the drama you like to exhibit use this experience to humble yourself and realize that material gains is not what life is about but the people that you surround yourself. May God bless her, He has just welcomed home a new angel.

[quote comment="11545"]I DO NOT believe this true.......... I am almost certain it is not. Reason being I have been looking at ALL New York news stations and NONE has mentioned the alleged death of Kanye's mom. Kanye is exremely known all around the world. ESPECIALLY in New York City. This is not and CANNOT be true....[/quote] Here's a report from CNN:

[quote comment="11525"]How do we know God dont want us to have cosmetic surgery if God gave Doctors the mind to do surgery? Kanye, I know your mother was proud of you just like the rest of us and I'm glad she got a chance to see the man she raised make a difference. Our prayers are always with you.[/quote] Just because people KNOW how to do stuff doesn't mean God WANTS it done. How did God even get involved in this?
