Kanye West’s Confederate Heritage

 

Kanye’s “Yeezus” tour kicked off in Seattle on Saturday night and already there’s a fuss brewing.Not because any rants Kanye held on stage (because we’ve become accustomed to those) but what was going elsewhere in the halls of the Key Arena. Looking at the official tour merch, Yeezy’s got a few items adorned with the Confederate flag and some include the phrase “I Ain’t Comin’ Down.”

Sometimes, it feels like ‘Ye’s totally trolling for negative reactions. As if Confederate flags adorning clothing could be explained away as fashion we, the feeble-minded plebeians, just don’t understand. Or, as Word phrased it, “Kanye likes to stir hornet nests just so he can complain about the stings.”
