Kanye West Wears Confederate Flag Jacket To Barneys, Says “Its My Flag Now”
This all comes after the 36-year-old blasted the retail store on-stage. Barney’s is facing accusations of racially-profiling black customers in stores and Kanye wanted all his fans to know it!
During an interview with AMP Radio, he explains the rationale for including the controversial symbol on his clothing. He said:
The Confederate flag represented slavery in a way. That’s my abstract take on what I know about it, right? So I wrote the song, ‘New Slaves.’ So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It’s my flag now. Now what you gonna do?
He also added:
It’s colorless also. It’s super-‘hood and super-white-boy-approved at the same time.
Do you think Kanye is taking this too far? Share your thoughts in comments!
