Kanye West had a sit down with Clique TV in France during the Paris Fashion Week which he recently attended with wife Kim Kardashian. One of the topics that came up was racism and Kanye gave his own interesting perspective which is that racism is a non-thing and that it's outdated and overtaken by recent happenings. He also has no problem with white people using the N-word at concerts or singing along to rap music.
“It’s true that white people use that word at concerts. It’s like when my words get taken out of context. I can say anything I want on a beat, but when I would say it in an interview, it would be taken out of context, and all, ‘Oh, he’s an ego-maniac.’ But it’s like, ‘Wait a second, this is the way people rap.'”
On racism being played out, he says;
“It’s like a silly concept that people try to touch on, to separate, to alienate, to pinpoint anything. It’s stupid. It’s like a bouncing ball in a room with two cats or something, when you don’t feel like playing with a cat. Let them literally fight over the bouncing ball. And the bouncing ball has nothing, no purpose, anything other than that it bounces. That’s racism. It’s not an actual thing that even means anything. It’s something that was used to hold people back in the past, but now there’s been so many leaps and breaking of the rules that it’s like it’s played out like a style from the 1800s or something.”
