Kanye West thinks the press hates him because of interracial relationship

Kanye West’s name has graced tabloid headlines for a while. The high profile rap artist allegedly figured out why the press gives him such a bad reputation. It’s because he’s in an interracial relationship. According to TMZ, Feb. 18, 2014, Kanye blasted the press during a concert. He said that they are afraid of him because of his relationship with Kim Kardashian.

Kanye said, "Every media outlet, I don’t care who you are — TMZ, E!, Barbara Walters — don’t play yourself. Respect it as such. SNL, all you writers, Lorne Michaels. Respect it as such. Cause when we standing face to face, you know who you’re looking at. Write that mother*cking 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.”

Kanye continues to amaze the press with his words of wisdom. Previously, Kanye decided that people didn’t like him because he and Kim represent different brands. According to E!, Kanye said, “I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kinda thing where it's like she's a reality star and I'm a rapper, and people talking about how our brands connect and what doesn't fit and I'm just so tired of the conversation of brands.”

The Yeezus tour hasn’t drawn the crowds. Even when the ticket prices were slashed in half, he still couldn’t fill the seats. At one concert, 4,500 seats were occupied, while the other 19,000 seats remained empty. Kanye attacks the paparazzi, and smashes camera equipment, because they take a picture and ask him a question. The latest incident was when he viciously beat an 18 year-old in the face over 30 times. He settled the case out of court for $250,000. No mention in the tabloids that his failing popularity stems from him dating a white woman.

Could it be that Kanye is his own worst enemy or is it purely racial? Maybe he should think before he goes on one of his public rants. What do you think?
