    On Saturday, Kanye West used Twitter to post a model casting notice for his “Yeezy Season 4” fashion show.

    It read: “Multiracial women only. No makeup please come as you are.”

    He received backlash on Twitter from users who said he was making it clear he did not want Black women, or only a certain type of Black woman.

    Here's a link to my article about it: http://www.diversityinc.com/news/kanye-wests-casting-call-multiracial-women-mean/

    Peace,

    He must have some tards working for him. He could have just said "Non-Whites only" if he was trying to get at all the women of color. That might piss off his wife though and send her looking for the next black dude. ;)

    Peace

    It meant he's a fool and will always be white people favorite coon.......

    He's wiped out his genes and his wealth and any legacy left when he dies will be tarnished and swallowed up by whites.

    He's simply an ignorant fool, which is why whites love giving him a mic and airplay more than anyone else....they sit back and laugh at him behind closed doors.......

    This is troubling as well, to me:

    And, the explanation is hard to believe, also:


    "... In an interview with Vogue magazine that was published about two hours before West’s show on Wednesday, he addressed the controversy. West said the concept came out of discussions with Vanessa Beecroft, a longtime collaborator, who is an Italian artist that assists in choreographing and staging his shows. He said the casting call was not intended to exclude anyone.

    The ten thousand people that showed up didn’t have a problem with it,” West said.

    In regard to the use of the word “multiracial” he added, “How do you word the idea that you want all variations of Black? How do you word that exactly? ...”

    I was curious to see Vanessa ...
