  • BREAKING: Kanye West Announces He’ll Leave The United States Because Of Racism

    The Minority Report ^ | 28 Jul 2014
    Yep, the United States is so racist that Kanye West was able to become a multi-multi millionaire here. He probably does need to travel more to find out how little racism affects success in the United States compared to most of the rest of the world. This reminds me of when Johnny Depp said he and his family were moving to Paris, France because the United States was too violent. Then the reality of Muslim riots in Paris with many cars being burned each night set in. Remember that? Yeah, after a few years Depp moved back to the States....

    Kanye West's interview with GQ's Zach Baron is riveting and delightful from beginning to end, and is really worth reading the whole way through. SNIP "Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur." (The "dinosaur," if it wasn't clear, is Kim.)

During an interview with Power 106 FM in Los Angeles, West was asked what he thought about the president and had a few unkind words.

Instead, a photo of West exiting a building in a seriously massive, apparently mink coat was posted online, incurring the wrath of thousands of Twitter followers for his un-PC cold-weather gear. “I think its absolutely disgusting that @kanyewest wears a mink fur, leather pants, and gator shoes,” @MsJBRZL tweeted. “How many poor animals did he kill for 1/2 an outfit?

    Ending a love affair with a narcissist is even harder than ending a healthy relationship. Narcissists don’t take it well. As Bernard Goldberg put it, many Americans are “dumb and in love” with Barack Obama. The true believers continue to pose as members of an objective media, all the while being led around by the nose by the New York Times. But despite the best efforts of the mainstream media to keep the Obamanutz cult alive, at least a few Americans are starting to question both Obama’s competency and motives.

    He may be a social pariah everywhere else -- but when Kanye West made a surprise appearance at Common's benefit concert last night in Hollywood, he got a hero's welcome. The crowd at the show -- which featured Common, Nas, Ludacris, De La Soul, The Roots, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and more -- just exploded when Kanye rushed out on stage. He stayed for a few songs -- including "Good Life" and "Run This Town" -- and had the crowd going nuts the whole time. Kanye was able to perform without interruption.

    SUPPOSE THAT GEORGE W. BUSH had called Kanye West (a black rapper) a "jackass" and requested that David Paterson (a black governor) not run for re-election. Can you imagine the furor that would have erupted? Guys like Al Sharpton would be screaming racism. Well, a President did in fact say these things, but it wasn't George W. Bush. It was Barack Obama. Watch him call a black man a "jackass", and consider what would have happened had that word come out of Bush's mouth: (The only jackasses are the ones in the mainstream media)

    One of the few truly unique hip-hop artists to revel atop the commercial side of the industry during the early 2000s, Kanye West spent most of his time producing flavorful hits for Jay-Z and other top-tier rappers, yet he eventually seized the opportunity to launch his own rapping career as well. Granted, West himself wasn't a phenomenal rapper, but he had a lot going for him. For one, he was witty, coming up with off-the-wall lyrics like "She's got a light-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson/Got a dark-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson" that were smart and funny at the...

    Kanye's Rant Doesn't Slow His New Album Rapper Kanye West's blurt-out on Friday night's telethon is still reverberating. But one thing's for sure: His new album, "Late Registration," was already set to debut at No. 1 today on the charts. He's thought to have sold upward of a whopping 900,000 copies in his opening week. I'm told that West was serious, by the way, when he uttered those now famous words: "George Bush doesn't care about black people." He didn't just blurt it out anxiously. It was intentional. The word is that West has revved up friends like Jamie Foxx,...

    I honestly do not know Kanye West is, other that that he is a rapper. During the Concert for Hurricane Relief that was broadcast live on NBC, Kayne let the world in on a little secret he was holding-President Bush hates black people. The exact quote was "George Bush doesn't care about black people" followed by his claim that the American way is "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible." Kanye offered no proof of his theory, but I guess he doesn't have to, since everyone knows all conservatives are closet racists. Can't...

    Kanye West tells Radar Magzine that he was known as ‘pee boy’ when he was a kid because he couldn’t control his bladder. "I remember one time peeing on myself on the way to a banquet. I had this nice rayon shirt on and these linen shorts, because I'd always be dressed really good. Pee across the front of your shorts - it f***s up your entire outfit."

    New Orleans--R&B and Rap producer/star, Kanye West has been granted his own "short bus for special people" by the Red Cross, say insiders with the organization. Organizational insiders note that West's on-air indictment of President Bush during a Red Cross fundraiser created "such a passionate bubble of individuality" that West would be better served with his own bus, as opposed to sharing the transportational burdens with other celebrities. Sources say that West's philanthropic travels will also include a full-time reading tutor . . .
