Kanye West’s Twitter rants don’t come as often as some of us would like them to but when they do, it gives us a bit of insight into what the artist has circulating in his brain. And this week students we are learning about how Kanye West feels about the use of the words, “Ni–a” and “Bi–h.”

Kanye West surprised people when he took to his on Sunday to discuss his thoughts on the recent over use of the words, “Ni–a” and “Bi–h.” His tweets started out with a simple question and then went on into further insight as he continued to tweet. Check out some of his tweets below:

Kanye goes on  to speak on how he was questioned about his use of the word Bi–h  and how he felt like it was a time to speak out loud about the topic. In the end of Kanye’s many tweets, there was not much response that seemed worthy enough for the artist to acknowledge so he ended up answering his own question. But Kanye brought up a great topic that we should all give some thought to, at least for a few minutes.

Has it truly become fine with society to a call a woman a “bad bi–h,” just because she has the assets that people define as beauty?What is so hard about just calling a woman beautiful? And how about the use of the word, “ni–a,”? People have the African American race have grown to hate it when a Caucasian person uses the word because of the history behind it. But the word still holds the same meaning when an African American person calls another African American person it. And when did it become ok with a person of a Hispanic race to call an African American “ni–a”? As stated before, the word still holds the same meaning regardless to who is using the word so why would we use it so freely?
