kanyeKanye West might’ve been talking about Emmys during his recent interview with SHOWstudio but the real person who deserves an award is Lou Stoppard for sitting through the painful interview with the rapper who it’s clear we lost a long time ago.

For two hours Ye talked about some of everything from music to fashion, but one of the most interesting comments from the rapper came when he was asked how he felt about Bruce Jenner’s transition to Caitlyn. Right out of the gate, Yeezy went left when he slighted black media as though mainstream outlets don’t engage in the same salacious genre of gossip.

“The first thing I did think about was I thought about black radio hosts you know maybe, possibly making jokes about it because the black culture is so homophobic and the news cycle — they’re just constantly trying to find some news…

Sharp left ahead:

“But then I thought f-ck it. F-ck what people think. I feel proud to be in a family that has, you know, so many people breaking ground for the generations to come. I just feel, it’s like, ‘Woah.’ It’s like reality show — that’s so f-cking new of an art form. To the point where, my wife and my family should’ve had plenty of Emmys by now. But reality shows are considered to be like rap was when the Mondrian wouldn’t let Run DMC and motherf-cking Will Smith stay there because they were rappers or the idea of a reality star not being allowed into a fashion show or not being nominated for their show, even if it’s the longest running and the most popular and everybody I know watches it and sh-t.”

You truly have to watch the video starting at the 1:01 mark to experience the full tragedy that is this black boy lost. It’s almost as though someone (Kris Jenner perhaps) put a battery in his back to rehearse the same tired criticisms we hear over and over about black people while simultaneously plugging the Kardashians to make sure know one forgets they sit atop one of the most ill-earned thrones ever established in society.

Somewhere Viola Davis is like…

  • He certainly throws his own people under the bus with his commentaries. Kanye certainly needs to understand that black culture is very diverse. Also, that reality TV show with the Kardashians represents the materialism, the exploitation, and the individualism found in society. Its content doesn’t make people overall to fight back against the machine. The show is in essence perpetrates many of the common American stereotypes. Run DMC broke down barriers and were groundbreaking in the golden era of hip hop. The reality show is a typical show found in an industry that readily manipulates and exploits the lives of people. Fundamentally, Kanye West has greatly changed since the days when he said that George W. Bush doesn’t care about black people.

      So true! If you’re sold out to that family then be sold out. Don’t stereotype the Black Community in the process. Things are changing in the Black Community and the LGBT community is being more widely accepted. Why single out one race as if some Blacks are the only race that are homophobic? Their show does revolve around materialism with a cast of narcissistic people who are sexualized and shallow.

    • He seems to forget that white supremacists are the most homophobic and transphobic people in American history. White supremacists passed laws and did other actions in public and in private for centuries that denied human rights of many people. Kanye West is a person with a great delusion. He needs to also know that the Black Community sacrificed a great deal for the cause of justice. Other minority groups owe a debt of gratitude to the sacrifice and courage of black people.

      Exactly, the Black Community is not denying marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples based on religious beliefs.

    I thought, “Do I dare listen to the verbal diarrhea from this dude?” The answer is “No.” I think most of you summed up my thoughts on this dude. He’s truly troubled.

    Kanye is living his dream. He’s got the white family he’s always wanted, even calling Kris “mom”. I’ve always felt that he’s secretly glad his dark skinned African Americam mom is out of the picture.
