Kayne Up to His Antics AGAIN!
Kanye is back in the spotlight, with news that several pieces of merchandise from his Yeezus tour feature the controversial Southern Cross.
At his tour store in Los Angeles, a replica of the flag is affixed to the wall with red tape and adorned with the words, “I ain’t coming down.”
Twitter exploded after word got out, and while West saw some support, including a fellow who called him a “pro-black genius,” others called him a disgrace.
Asked to explain the rationale for including the controversial symbol on his clothing, The embattled rap star commented that “The Confederate flag represented slavery in a way. That’s my abstract take on what I know about it, right?…So I wrote the song ‘New Slaves.’ So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It’s my flag now. Now what you gonna do?”
West went on to say that “It’s colorless also…It’s super-‘hood and super-white-boy-approved at the same time.”
