Coincidence? Kanye drops a track packed with racial overtones right after his back and forth with George W. Bush. To recap, the former president said Kanye’s outburst (“George Bush doesn’t care about black people”) was the worst moment of his presidency. Kanye responded that he sympathized with the president because people labeled Kanye as a racist after he interrupted Taylor Swift.
Not to sully Kanye’s redemptive moment of forgiveness, but did anyone really accuse Kanye of racism after the VMAs? I remember a lot of “I’mma let you finish” jokes and another president calling him “a jackass”, but no one thought Kanye got up on that stage because of racism. Props to Kanye for apologizing, but this was a pretty narcissistic way of doing it.
Q-Tip on the beat.
