In a deposition for a civil case where he is accused of assaulting a paparazzi, Kanye West compared the plight of celebrities to that of blacks during the civil rights movement. West sees the paparazzi as an intrusive force who often show up too early when he alerts them of his whereabouts. He should be giving them credit for playing along with a vocal minority who pretend his wife is worth photographing. Of course West has to manufacture a conflict and calling out other rappers could occasionally get your ass shot. Better to pick on the pudgy Big Gulp sipping losers who help your bottom line by documenting your staged useless toiling. West’s deposition became offensively outlandish:
“I mean in the ’60s people used to hold up ‘Die Nigger’ signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also… Yes, 100 … I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities… We, as group of minorities here in L.A., as celebrities have to ban together to influence guys like this.”
I’m sure Kanye’s parents also felt disenfranchised as they drove away in their llama fur covered Lamborghinis to bang their wealthy white women in Calabasas. You can only be so privileged and famous and covered in perfumed pussy before you’re not allowed to complain about even real problems, let alone shit you made up in your head because you have no real problems.
