Because Kanye, through his Yeezus promotions, has appropriated some of the most pervasive forms of white American iconography and put his black Kanye face all over it. Think about it, white Jesus, Confederate flag, Galloping stallions/those windows xp frontier shots/eagles/motorcycles/impregnating then marrying arguably one the most beautiful women in pop culture then putting on said motorcycle in the Bound 2 video, giving it thee most corny treatment and debuting it on the Ellen Degeneres show. He’s literally shitting on everything white america loves. Naming one song “Black Skinhead.” Then another “I am a God.” Then in new slaves raps about the relationship between the DEA and the Corrections Corporation of America and vows to ejaculate on their spouses in vengeance for their collusion.
It’s incredibly subversive and he’s far from confused. His clarity in execution is nearly flawless." @1 day ago with 40 notes
