Here is his hospital experience.
There was a Jewish trainer who took me to the hospital and told the press that I was there.” “A Jewish doctor diagnosed me,” West claimed, as Fridman pressed him on why he kept emphasizing the doctor’s Jewishness. “Because they were,” West explained. “They diagnosed me with bipolar illness and gave me medication.” Then run it through the press… And every time, even if I wore a hat that an n—er isn’t meant to wear, they instantly say, ‘he’s off his s-t, he’s off his medicines, he’s off his rocker.’ And it serves as a scarlet letter control mecha
