In a recent interview with Clique TV, Kanye West described racism as “dated.”
When asked about the topic, West said “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.”
Kanye went on to say, “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.”
However, Ye had a different perspective on the N Word. The rapper stated, it’s “difficult for black people right now. It does hurt when we hear that, because we’re still in a generation that remembers when racism was a big thing that held people back.”
“And it’s now it’s more classism,” he continued, “you’re social status can hold you back now.”
West definitely has unique views on things. I, personally, actually enjoy his interviews. What do you guys think? Do you agree?
