Highlighting American news
Kanye West was his usual Kanye Best at stirring up controversy this week.
Appearing as a Kanye Guest on 97.1 AMP Radio yesterday, West answered the question many people were asking: why is he wearing a Confederate flag on his clothing while on tour?
“So I made the song ‘New Slaves,'” he said. “So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag! It’s my flag now!”
It’s hard to find a meaning behind anything he said while he was beating his Kanye Chest. Doesn’t he know about the controversy behind the infamous Confederate flag?
“The Confederate flag represented slavery in a way,” he said. “React how you want. Any energy you got is good energy.”
Call it a bold move or a questionable marketing ploy, but one thing is certain: the man isn’t afraid to speak his mind.
Before ending his interview, West sent a message to his haters.
“Now what are you gonna do,” he said.
