This has been a very hard week to swallow, namely because of rapper and former black man Kanye West. Kim Kardashian’s doting husband has been known for his sporadic rants, but this time (like many times before) he took to Twitter to share whatever thoughts were running through his brain.
Clearly, the sunken place has Wi-Fi now, because Yeezy’s tweet storm has been a nonstop flow of unconsciousness, bringing us into his idea of “free thought.” He referenced conservative commentator and apologetically black woman Candace Owens, saying that he loves the way she thinks. Owens thinks that black people who cry over racism and oppression aren’t actually experiencing it, but our ancestors did. Owens thinks that racism isn’t real.
You know who else thinks this way? If you answered “wypipo,” you are correct, but more specifically, former Real Housewives of Atlanta “star” Kim Zolciak-Biermann. Last week, after the season 10 reunion, Zolciak-Biermann mustered up her finest and whitest tears so that she could cry about the entire cast bullying her, despite being pretty awful to all of them throughout the season. Her rant kept going until she landed smack dab in Whitelandia, claiming:
This whole racism thing in this day and age is bullshit. Every one of those motherfuckers on that couch owe this world a fucking apology for this racism shit. They already tried to claim that shit long ago—Sheree, as you know. Nobody really bought into it because the social media wasn’t there, and racism wasn’t fucking all that real. And you know it.
Oh, Kim and Kanye, how dare you? Claiming racism doesn’t exist is like saying the Kardashians are au naturel. As Zolciak and West gear up for Get Out 2: Out of the Sunken Place, we’re left wondering how many other warm-blooded Americans think racism is a myth.
