With race relations in such dire straits, what better thing for Kanye West to do than to ask “white” publications to stop commenting on “black” music?
In a move that’s sure to earn him a Nobel Peace Prize, the rapper asked “Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times” and “any other white publication” to “not comment on black music anymore.”
This might come as a shock to Mr. West, but there are black people who work for The New York Times. I believe that is legal in 2016.
West also tweeted that white folks “don’t understand what it means to be the great grandson of ex slaves.”
Correct. And the great grandson of ex-slaves don’t know what it’s like to be slaves, either. That’s especially true if they’re rich celebrities.
Even if they’re rich celebrities who are $53 million in debt.
Certainly, Kim Kardashian’s husband has done well enough for himself that he has time to fantasize about having sex with Taylor Swift and concocting delusions of grandeur that he made her famous.
West also tweeted that the “system is designed for colored people to fail and one of our only voices is music.”
Wait. Is he allowed to say “colored people”?
