Kanye West Explains How Kardashians Made the World Better
Kanye then pointed out that The Cosby Show was a big reason why people were able to accept the idea of a middle class black family being the most powerful family in the United States. Kanye also noted that his soon-to-be in laws, The Kardashians, don't get enough credit for helping America accept interracial relationships. He says no one cares what he does, but his relationship with Kim gives people a point of reference that love knows no color barriers.
"I can date a white woman, I can date a black woman, and no matter what they say in the barber shop don't matter, because I don't get my haircut there," he said with a laugh. "For the people that do, though, there's a white woman that's getting talked down to by her friends because she's dating a black guy. Now you've got a point of reference, you can say, 'Well, actually this couple right here, that's dope.'"
Kanye also notes that people have a problem with things that are different, so as an innovator he needs to take the power out of things like interracial dating and show the world that it's OK.
"I almost like doing bad ideas. I only like doing things people people won't do. They're less cliche," he said. "I can show you how you can take the power out of anything. and how you can add power to anything. Like I can take the power out of the n-word. We can take the power out of the Confederate flag."
Kanye then commended Drake for taking the power out of the word b****. "He came and said, 'Wait a second, we're not just going to be like droppin' the b-word all day long because it does impact our women and take away from the idea of family," Yeezy explained. more on this story
