Kanye West: 'I Love Love Love White People' But They Should 'Shut The F**k Up & Enjoy The Greatness'

  • by: Alan Duke

Kanye West has had enough of white critics writing about his art because he says they cannot ever understand it since they are not the descendants of slaves.

West, who just released "The Life Of Pablo," sent a burst of tweets Monday pleading to "Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times, and any other white publication" to "not comment on black music anymore."

It's not that West does not love white people -- in fact he is married to a white woman. "I love love love white people but you don't understand what it means to be the great grandson of ex slaves and make it this far."

But music and sports is about all his people have considering how the white majority has rigged the system against them, he suggests. "The system is designed for colored people to fail and one of our only voices is music. One of our only ways out is music."

Apparently, white journalists should not report on pro basketball either -- unless they can jump and shoot. "Don't tell me Lebron had a bad game. What yo jump shot look like???"

West closed with this demand for white writers: "Shut the f**k up and enjoy the greatness."
