Kanye West interrupted his own concert, as is his wont, to pontificate for 20 minutes on a variety of subjects.
This time, he touched on corporate greed, the Grammys (he called his two nominations "disrespectful," "like leaving a $2 tip") and Drake ("We love Drake"). He also called out the media for racism:
This ain't no motherfucking spoof, so play this shit back at your motherfucking meetings when you're writing your jokes. Play this shit back when you're writing your headlines for your tabloids... Write that motherfucking headline when you try to make me look like a maniac or an animal, because you afraid of interracial relationships, because you afraid of the future, because you afraid of a rapper that was raised by two educated parents."
Missing the point entirely — that the media's gleeful portrayal of Kanye as manic and "ranting" tends to be racist and supremely condescending — TMZ wrote, "Funny ... we thought we were ragging on him long before he hooked up with Kim." Sigh. [TMZ, Gossip Cop]
