The conversation about race in America has many voices and many points of view. One of those happens to belong to Kanye West, though, and during a New Jersey concert on Saturday night, he stopped to go on a rant against tabloids and the media for how they view him and write about him, saying they’re “afraid of interracial relationships.”
West specifically called out TMZ, E!, Barbara Walters, and the entirety of Saturday Night Live, including Lorne Michaels. He proudly cried, “This ain’t no motherf*cking spoof, so play this sh*t back at your motherf*cking meetings when you’re writing your jokes.”
But then West got to the true heart of the matter, and what he thinks is really behind all the ridicule he gets.
“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.”
