Kanye West assails Jews, abortion in new interview with Lex Fridman
Kanye West is a notorious assaulter of the Jewish people, most notably in his infamous rant at the Met Gala, during which the rapper made the claim that he’s the “grandfather of the black American”.
Following a string of tweets on his Twitter account last night, in which the rapper seemed to suggest that black people are only worthy of being called “people of color” if they embrace Jewry, West went on a Twitter rant. Here’s what he wrote:
“I don’t give a fuck about black and white, I don’t give a fuck about how you feel about Black people,” West said. “I don’t give a fuck about Black people, I don’t give a fuck about white people. You have the same fucking issues,” he said, before adding: “What is it with all these fucking Black people wanting to go out to dinner with other Black people? All these fucking gay people wanting to hang out with other gay people? How about all these fucking Jewish people wanting to go out for dinner with other Jewish people?”
West made a second statement on his Twitter account after the interview with the Telegraph, in which he said:
“That’s all you want to do: You want to be around other people. That’s all you want to do. You don’t want to be with us, you want us to like you. If you’re a white person, that’s cool. That’s cool. If you’re a black person, that’s cool.”

During the interview, which was on a special edition of the New York Times Magazine last night, the rapper responded by explaining that he views Jews as a separate minority and he doesn’t see them as “people of color”:
