Kanye Defines Multiracial

kanye-west-yeezy-season-4-show-3Earlier this month, Kanye tweeted a casting call for his fashion show, Season 4, asking for only multiracial women. The internet went into a frenzy (including us), assuming he was asking for anti-black women.

Attendees’ anticipation built as they were shuttled to Roosevelt Island to see what Kanye had up his sleeve. In true Kanye West form, he defied expectations. His show was filled with women of all different shades of melanin. Although his words were misinterpreted, his show proved what he really meant.

West spoke to Conde Nast about the misunderstanding by stating, “How do you word the idea that you want all variations of black? How do you word that exactly?” Maybe we should finally stop thinking the worst of Kanye, by putting him in a box and always assuming he’s the bad guy.

Sorry, Mr. West.
