Remember that promise Kanye West made a few months ago about being quiet and not having one of his classic rants? Well, it’s been broken. Who would have thunk it?
Over the weekend during his Yeezus tour, Kanye gave the crowd something to ponder when it comes to interracial couples and the media:
“This ain’t no motherf*cking spoof, so play this sh*t back at your motherf*cking meetings when you’re writing your jokes. Play this sh*t back when you’re writing your headlines for your tabloids… Write that motherf*cking headline when you try to make me look like a maniac or an animal, because you afraid of interracial relationships, because you afraid of the future, because you afraid of a rapper that was raised by two educated parents.”
So apparently, Kanye feels that the evil tabloids and media are afraid of interracial relationships. Because you know, he’s the first person to ever be in one.
But let’s discuss that. The big bad media and tabloids, who Kanye alleges are ‘afraid’. The thing is, the media loved Khloe and Lamar. The media loves Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez. The media almost died when Heidi Klum and Seal got divorced. No one pays attention to the fact that several other famous people are in interracial relationships.
But you know, Kanye’s relationship is special (sarcasm).
Maybe Kanye should take a second to ponder that it’s not his relationship that the media are afraid of, or hates. Maybe it’s just him. Sure there are those people who frown upon interracial couples, and feel that the races should stay separate. But there’s also those people who don’t give a damn. Then there’s those people who are tired of over-saturation and Kim Kardashian’s face. And Kanye’s rants. Maybe, just maybe, it’s Kanye who has an issue with his own interracial relationship and he’s just projecting.
Clutchettes, what do you think about Kanye’s newest rant? Do you think the media is afraid of interracial relationships?
