It takes a racist to know one; I'm black and racist Yes, Kanye is racist. Maybe that will change now that he is married to a white woman (Kim K) and has an interracial kid. Of course K&K's relationship won't last, but hopefully his relationship with his kid will. There maybe some glimmer of hope that Kanye will not raise his kid as black or white, but instead as an upstanding and thinking citizen, who respects and accepts all, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, country of origin, ancestral country of origin, or socioeconomic status. I wish this described me and that I was this good, but I am not. I am black and a racist. It's from how I was raised and innately hard to break. Not to say it cannot be broken, but I have not been able to break it. I imagine it is the same for Kanye--he was probably brought up under racial sentiments his whole life, despite his and his family's education levels, church attendance, and having white playmates. It's a hard shell to crack; it is crackable though. You can change Kanye.
