Kanye West: Celebrities being treated like blacks in the 60’s

Kanye West: Celebrities being treated like blacks in the 60’s

Oh my goodness. I guess what makes people in the “entertainment industry” like Kanye West so successful is because they’re just so darned entertaining. And by entertaining, I mean the fun I have poking my eyes out with sharp implements when I hear the things they say.

Kanye West – no relation to my boss (thank goodness) – in case you’ve somehow missed it, is the famously outspoken “artiste” who just married the highly talented and dorsally-esteemed Kim Kardashian with whom he has a daughter creatively named “North.” West has been blessed with enough talent or hubris or whatever to pursue his God-given right to life, liberty and happiness.

In an interview with GQ, West seems to appreciate that fact, saying “I am a black American male from Chicago who had my rehearsal dinner at Versailles and then got married in Florence with a view of the entire city.”

For all of you keeping score, Kanye West has a net worth of about $120 million. That’s quite a bit more than “walking around money” – at least in my book. It’s also quite a bit more than I, a white Jewish female from San Jose, will ever get my mitts on.

And yet, Kanye West believes he is still a victim. He is being discriminated against. Because now he’s a CELEBRITY.
