Kanye On Paparazzi Fight: A Civil Rights Movement

You know that unspoken list of things that you “just don’t do”?

I’m pretty sure trivializing the Civil Rights movement is one of them.

In recent face-palming news, Kanye West equated the struggles of warding off paparazzi to the struggles African-Americans faced during the Civil Rights Movement.

In a transcript of West’s deposition in the case where he is accused of assaulting a photographer, the “Bound 2” rapper said “I mean in the ’60s people used to hold up ‘Die N****r’ signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also.”

They may have gone through a little more than seeing mean signs held up, ‘Ye. Stuff like, oh I don’t know, having dogs set on them?

West went on to say “I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities.”

Earlier in July, the rapper compared paparazzi violations to rape at one of his concerts.

Let’s stick to rapping instead of making disjointed analogies, Kanye.
