Kanye West Responds to Multi-Racial Backlash


Last week Kanye West caused a stir by posted a casting call for his Yeezy Season 4 fashion show seeking "multi-racial" women only [click here if you missed that].

Kanye shrugs off the backlash...

Asked about his controversial casting Kanye tells Vogue,
“The ten thousand people that showed up didn’t have a problem with it.”
adding,
“How do you word the idea that you want all variations of black? How do you word that exactly?”

He's right how do you word it. Black folk didn't get it apparently it went above some of their IQ's. But the man was asking for variations of black poeple.

It is pretty clear from pictures and videos that not all the models were LSLH. I think the entire "multi-racial" pre-req was blown out of proportion. Multi-racial does not only mean black/white, black/asian, black/hispanic...there are multi-racial people that aren't black at all. There are also multi-racial people that do not fit the common idea of being light skinned with good hair. Requesting multi-racial models should have actually been celebrated when in past times multi-racial people were discriminated against.

Just like that Kooney, on the call sheet:All variations of African American. Clown mother'f'er And those 10s of 1000s of people showed up to protest your call sheet. But after this show, I don't think you need to worry about anyone showing up. Get your event team together. Models fainting and ish,can't walk down the the runway in your raggedy shoes. You need to a shame you presented yourself in this manner. Trying to produce a grand fashion show on a budget. Your idea is great but poorly executed.

Kanye is delusional so confusion is always going to follow him. I use to wish him well, but he just gets on my nerves anymore.

Bigger question: Does he realizing leaving buyers and fashion writers out in that heat will lead to no one picking up this season's pieces? Does he really want to sell clothes, or is this a vanity project run amok?

Snitch, PLEASE do a post on Paris Jackson marrying the pizza delivery dude with the Confederate Flag tattoo and moving into Michael's compound where he recorded "Beat It!" (Paris get's 8mil a year from the estate and married with no pre-nup.)

@2:32 This is coming from Kanye's #1 fan...he's a BRILLIANT musician, as well as a GREAT shoe designer...clothes are another story...

@3:09 First, Paris is NOT MARRIED.
Second, her BOYFRIEND does NOT live on the compound.
Third, the house has been under construction for months, she lives in the guesthouse, beginning a few weeks ago...
Fourth, Micheal also record Thriller there...

That runway music sounds like the backwards Latin Mass during the Satanic Ritual in "Eyes Wide Shut."

I see what time it is, Kanye.

All. Races. Welcome

Thank you @1046
Everyone is essentially multiracial. Hence, the premise of the Ancestry.com commercials: "I thought I was ____, but found out I was ___, ___, AND ___."
From a scientific standpoint, race based on skin color is manmade. We are ALL homo sapiens (human species).

Uhhh... By saying "We're looking for all variations of black models."

Seems pretty simple to me.

"Models of African descent preferred"
