Kanye West is currently the most interesting person on the music scene. In an interview with Piers Morgan, West spoke about various topics that caused various reactions. These are some of his statements; "I am a person that is classified as Black, I classify myself as Jew.
I want to prove that first of all I am Jew also. Do your research on it. We have got our culture ripped from us." - he said, as quoted by mamamia.com Kayne revealed his next goals; Going to war. Quite bizarre, isn't it? "I'm rich.
I'm going to war. I don't have endless resources – I only have maybe $120 million in my account. I have to fight right now." West explained his comments regarding Jews. "It's not racism [referring to his anti-Semitic statements and White Lives Matter t-shirts], I was in a position where I was hurt and this was the way I had the right to express myself.
There was a lack of sophistication in my wording – I said I was sleepy and it was taken in a way that I didn't mean. I will say I'm sorry for the people I hurt... Hurt people hurt people, and I was hurt."
Kanye West on straight white male
West decided to support "white straight males" considering that he believes that there is a huge pressure on that group. Many are surprised by his statements. "The straight white male has the least amount of a platform to even speak.
A straight white male can't say my wife hurt me today. Because people will say you're hurting women. A straight white male can't say 'a Black employee didn't come in to work on time.' Because people will say 'you're racist.' A straight white male can't speak on a homosexual person because people will say you're homophobic."
