Posted on 01/22/2014 10:04:25 AM PST by C19fan
When Kanye West arrived after being informed of this, he walked straight up to the teen and punched him in the face. Now, in the aftermath of the incident, he said he is seriously considering leaving the United States.
West said he is dreading explaining the incident to his daughter, whose name is North, because it will lead to seriously negative discussions about American culture, society and history. West said he would prefer to leave the U.S. than have to have regular conversations about racism with his daughter.

Hey, Kanye. Don’t let the door hit you in the rear on your way out.
Take Jane Fonda and Alec Baldwin with you.
Such a down lo’ drama queen!
This calls for that “well...bye!” gif from Curly Bill.
Liberia is a great place.
Take a hike, you posuer...
One step ahead of you.
Why would he encourage racism?
The moral compass of America has spoken.
Will be the best day for America since Teddy the Swimmer assumed room temperature.
Lots of gay fish there.
Why not move to the Congo or South Sudan or Central African Republic?
Lots of black people there!
He has a show to promote....this was staged...and his outrageous behavior and statements of recent are for show ratings.
Of course most other countries are a lot more racist
Be sure to renounce your citizenship.
OMG!!! ( hands on cheeks and wide eyed look)
Whatever will we do here in America without you, Kanye?????
But if he leaves the fish stick industry will suffer.
I knew racism would pay off sooner or later.
You probably know that Robert Kardashian, OJ Simpson friend and lawyer, was father to the low down, no talent Klan of Kardashians.
Well that’s it for America.
If racism is what it takes to rid us of this piece of self-propelled garbage, then let’s all become racists.
Here’s your hat. What’s your hurry? Come back sometime when you can’t stay so long.
So Bieber might get kicked out, and Kanye might leave? This is fantastic...now how to get rid of the rest of Hollywood?
Buh bye. Take your whore with you.
Marvelous news. Good-bye!
Sources told Hollywood Life that after the physical confrontation, West just held his daughter, held her tight and told her how much he loves her. He told me man to man you know Im dreading the day Ive got to break this sh*t down to North and tell my little girl how f**ked up the world is. I dont ever want her to go through what her mother did today.
West said further, weve got enough money to buy our own island or some sh*t. Ill be damned if I raise my daughter around ignorance and flat-out blatant racism.
Ive reached a point in my life where my Truman Show boat has hit the painting. And Ive got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling. As a creative person, as a celebrity. When I say that, it means, I want to do product, I am a product person. Not just clothing, but water bottle design, architecture, everything, you know, that you could think about. And Ive been at it for 10 years, and I look around, and I say, wait a second, theres no one in this space that looks like me, and if they are, theyre quiet as fuck. So that means, wait a second, now were seriously, like, in a civil rights movement.”
You guys dont understand that I did the Yeezys and they eBayed for $90,000 and people wanted them bad as whatever, right. But I didnt get a call from Nike the next day. You guys dont understand that I met with companies and they say, What were trying to figure out is how we can control you and control that. No, I dont think youre really hearing what Im saying. As a creative, for you to have done something to the level of the Yeezys and not be able to create more so when I say, Clean water was only served to the fairer skin, what Im saying is, were making product with chitlins. T-shirts thats the most we can make. We can have our best perspective on T-shirts, but if its anything else, your Truman Show boat is hitting the wall.
We got this new thing called classism. Its racisms cousin. This is what we do to hold people back. This is what we do. And we got this other thing thats also been working for a long time when you dont have to be racist anymore. Its called self-hate. It works on itself. Its like real estate of racism. Where just like that, when someone comes up and says something like, I am a god, everybody says, Who does he think he is? I just told you who I thought I was! A god! I just told you. Thats who I think I am. Would it have been better if I had a song that said, I am a n***a? Or if I had a song that said, I am a gangster? Or if I had a song that said, I am a pimp? All those colors and patinas fit better on a person like me, right? But to say you are a god, especially when you got shipped over to the country that youre in, and your last name is a slave owners. How could you say that? How could you have that mentality?”
“Ive dedicated the last 10 years of my life to this. Ive spent 80% of my time working on this, and 20% working on music. Why do you think the song N****s in Paris was called N****s in Paris? Because n****s was in Paris! Thats why we were in Paris. I put in the 10,000 hours. Because I had an office in a small courtyard across the street from Colette where I couldnt even find a good pattern cutter. Thats why we were in Paris. I put in the 10,000 hours. Ive got a very particular, specific take on mens footwear. No one can say I cannot design, or understand how to design, a guys sneaker.
“Its funny; you drive in a Maybach past a homeless person and you ask, Whos more free? You could be trapped to your possessions. You gotta do this next deal cause you gotta do this with your house and you gotta get this car. And everybody [who] stay next to you last name is Jones, and you trying to keep up with all of them. And thats what its like to be a celebrity.
Both this song [Black Skinhead] and I Am a God were made after Hedi Slimane didnt let me into his first [Yves] Saint Laurent show. He wanted me to go but he just told me I couldnt go to any other show other than that. I was like, wait a second. I cant go? Youre not telling no editor they cant go to any of these shows. Im not your boy. Like you can control me in some way. Off of that, I went into the studio with the producers that made the music for his show (laughs) and made I Am a God and Black Skinhead That was my reaction
Kanye West Threatens To Leave United States Due To Racism
Good. Let the racist bigoted hate speech thug leave the country. That one act alone should INCREASE race relations by about 5 percent.
Kanye is the type of person that keeps racism in the US alive
I hope he takes all the Kartrashians with him.
May I suggest, North Korea?
People like him always say that. How come Alec Baldwin hadn’t left like he said he would? Some other Hollyweird actors stomp their heels and get all (fill in appropriate word) when things don’t go their way.
The racists prick would not stay gone long. He craves that mindless adoration from fans, which is heaped upon his ego by the media scum. I wonder, could we get this racist to take a few other black racists with him, and soon?
Yeah, I wonder if he’s thinking about France?
LEAST RACIALLY TOLERANT COUNTRIES
20 - 39.9%
France, Turkey, Bulgaria, Algeria, Morocco, Mali, Zambia, Thailand, Malaysia, The Philippines, Bangladesh, Hong Kong
MOST TOLERANT COUNTRIES
0 to 4.9%
United States, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Guatemala, Britain, Sweden, Norway, Latvia, Australia, New Zealand
If he picks the UK, he may not be able to spout all he spouts off about. It will be interesting to watch. Even more interesting if he buys an island—it won’t be too long before he doesn’t have all that money to swagger over.
Who the heck buys this nutjob’s crap?! He can’t sing and he can’t design (check out Kardashian ‘fashion’ since she has been dating him).
“So if you listen to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, that’s the closest thing to a perfected album. So it’s like, I know how to make perfection, I just don’t want to. I want to rip the jeans!”
There’s that humble attitude that West is known for. Now we all know that if North West’s dad cranks out crap, it’s his choice because he can make perfection he chooses not to. “Rip the jeans” must be slang for “Piss people off every time I open my mouth.”
“At what point do you see something and say, ‘Yo, he really might be like Walt Disney. He really might be that creative and not just a rapper.’”
Now West thinks he’s Walt Disney. Delusion is a slippery slope, isn’t it folks? One minute you convince yourself you’re like a world famous architect and then you’re just a cocky declaration or two away from thinking you’re Walt Disney. We used to stuff people in padded rooms for saying this kind of stuff. Kanye, when you have a couple of theme parks named after you and you’ve made thousands of movies, let us know.
“Meaning, like, there’s no way for it to not work. When we do T-shirts, we do $200,000 in five hours, it works, but it’s a wall It’s the Michael Jackson glass ceiling when he couldn’t get his videos played because he was considered to be urban.”
When West tries to explain what he’s talking about, we get more confused. His T-shirt manufacturing company is encountering the same problems Michael Jackson did? Huh? This is just getting weird.
“It’s not fair that I don’t have infrastructure for what I want to do in clothing because I’m crazy influential.”
It’s not fair that West is crazy influential? What’s not fair is that we have to be subjected to Yeezus’ Kanye-isms because he’s wormed his way into the spotlight. Remember, Kanye, just because you say it’s so, doesn’t make it so. (How many “Yeez” men has this guy surrounded himself with that have convinced him if he says something, it must be true?)
“What I want to create isn’t about black and white, but the reason why I’m not able to create what I want to create is about being black and is about classism. And that’s the wall when I took [Kim] to the Met Ball and they put it up on Vogue.com and tried to say she wasn’t there because they didn’t want a reality show girl there.”
First, it’s not about being black, and then it is. Then it’s about “classism.” West has a new card in his deck to play, called the “class” card, even though he and his fiancée, Kim Kardashian, have more combined wealth than some small countries (although we all know wealth can’t buy you class is that what he’s talking about?).
“Or like with the Hollywood Walk of Fame it’s not the walk of singing it’s the Walk of Fame and classism has been going on before racism. We’re classist. We have our cool table and there’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue.”
Dramatic shifts in thought processes not withstanding, it appears that West is bitter that the mother of his child is not being considered for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame because she’s a reality TV star. He should realize the real reason Kardashian is not being given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is because all the other stars who have worked hard to earn a star would scratch their names out if she did.
“She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like every day and collectively we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [President] Obama is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”
Did you see what happened there? In one stream of consciousness, West told us that Kardashian is the most intriguing woman right now (Lord, is our country in trouble if that’s true), he name-dropped Barbara Walters, and compared their popularity and fashion to the president and first lady. So far, West thinks he is Gaudi, Walt Disney and Michael Jackson and Barbara Walters is calling Kardashian every day. We want some of whatever West is drinking.
“Just drink! I’m sure I’m not supposed to say that, but I drink Grey Goose. And I’m not getting paid anything from them, but I’m going to tell you as a man and they said Shakespeare was like a drunk and yes, I said that to blatantly compare myself to Shakespeare you know, I’m not perfect.”
And there it is. The final piece of the puzzle falls into place, but not before West compares himself to William Shakespeare. (If you’re wondering what that noise is, it’s the sound of Will flopping around in his grave.) Before he wraps up, West reminds us that he’s not perfect, which we already figured out by the number of contradictions and confusing quotes in this interview. Pass the Grey Goose.
Aw, poor baby. I’m sure Taylor Swift will miss him.
So, Kanye thinks that a negative remark gives him the right to punch the guy. I'm just waiting and hoping that one day Kanye does this to somebody who breaks Kanye's arm, followed by his face, before any of his bodyguards can react.
Public people seem to think they’re supposed to be above having to tolerate fools like the one who was shouting insults. Sounds like Kanye West is unable to discern an exception in the gene pool, or wants the anomalies in order to game the public.
The Kanye West album has become exponentially notorious, and now the conversation is centered around the controversial album art depicting a dead Native American wearing regalia and a headdress. To different viewers this image can carry various connotations. Some Natives look at this image and see the denied access to graves of their ancestors, as well as the thieving and abuse of those remains. Some could say even the text God Wants You is a reminder of manifest destiny and other historical trauma that Native Americans endured. The image is also reminiscent of one of our nations most popular cultural icons, Uncle Sam. But rather than representing the messages of war propaganda, this image represents the personification of cultural imperialism and the war on Native Identity.
I hope the stupid nAgger leaves.
A twofer....crybaby thuggie and big butt jungle fever addict
Let me clarify.....he ANNOYS me.
