"Or if I had a song that said "I am a gangsta"? Or if I had a song that said "I am a pimp." All those colors and petinas fit better….on a person like me, right? But to say you are a god? Especially when you got shipped over to the country you’re in and your last name is a slave owners’? How could you say that? How could you have that mentality?
This interview was actually brilliant. It reminded me of the genius that is Kanye West. Yeah, he’s arrogant and explosive, but he’s a fucking visionary.
Yo, I was just thinking about this the other with the whole Richard Sherman thing. You just cannot be Black and say you’re awesome.
The media loves to demonize Kanye West. The media loves to put him in the absolute worst light imaginable and cast him as a devil character. The funny thing is people like Charlie Sheen get brand TV new shows and positive press. How many white men in Hollywood are pedophiles? Huh, how many have physically beat there wives and have racist values? Yet Kanye, a SUCCESSFUL BLACK man with pride get looked down upon.
Remember, they don’t want us to get TOO successful.
