is kanye west obsessed with white girls? no judgment. simply observation.

a few of his songs came on back to back on my pandora station and each of them had lyrics that referenced white girls. one song, ok fine it’s a line, it rhymes. two songs, ok no biggie just a coincidence. but after 3, 4, 5, 6, 7th song i think it’s safe to say it’s an obsession and not just in his lyrics but in real life too. black stars dating white women is nothing new but it sort of catches you off guard of what still represents a symbol of status in this “postracial era”.

Ta-Nehisi Coates, a senior editor for The Atlantic broke it down in one of his articles:

"I’m more amazed at his empty employment of white women as objects. I’m less amazed, but pretty depressed, that colorism is back—"Rolling with some light-skin chicks and some Kelly Rowlands," is little more than "you’re pretty for a dark-skin girl" in this postracial era."


check the lyrics and decide for yourself:


I know these dude’s ballin, and yeah that’s nice
And they gon’ keep callin’ and tryin’
But you stay right, girl
But when you get on, he leave yo’ ass for a white girl

this way - dilated peoples featuring kanye west

My favorite girl wanna leave just because I got a girlfriend
My freak girl tell me now she a christian
My white girl wanna move back to Michigan


But I’ve been practicing with some actresses as bad as shit
And a few white girls, asses flat a shit
But the head so good, damn a n-gga glad he hit

christmas in harlem

Okay my white girl Veronica
Black girl Monica
Got me celebrating ChristmaHanuKwanzaakah
Rocking dashikis with a yarmulke

so appalled
Champagne wishes, 30 white bitches
I mean the sh-t is, f-cking ridiculous


Heard they’d do anything for a Klondike
Well I’d do anything for a blonde-dike
And she’ll do anything for the limelight


Nicki what you think, I got two White Russians but we also need some drinks
ah hahahaha
