Kanye West wants you to make something clear — no matter what anyone says, the real reason he gets a bad rap in the press is because he’s dating outside his race.
TMZ reports that, during a recent concert, Kanye went off on a tirade against his haters, claiming that it’s not his love of camera smashing or his constant discussions about his own greatness that rile people up, it’s just because the world hates interracial relationships. Say what?
“TMZ, E!, Barbara Walters, when you’re writing the headlines for your tabloids, when you’re trying to make me look like a maniac or an animal, [it’s] because you’re afraid of interracial relationships,” said the rapper.
While Kanye and fiancee Kim Kardashian may be the targets of racially-motivated criticism from some idiots out there, it seems more likely that people are hating on Kanye because, well, he does a lot of hateable stuff.
Although Kanye may truly believe that the world is against him because they’re not ready to see interracial couples, just a few months ago, Kanye claimed that folks disliked him because he and Kim represented different brands.
“I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kinda thing where it's like she's a reality star and I'm a rapper, and people talking about how our brands connect and what doesn't fit and I'm just so tired of the conversation of brands,” said the star.
Do you think Kanye has a point? Is the media unfair to him because he’s in an interracial relationship, or are critics simply treating him the way they’d treat any other arrogant celeb?
