Kanye West on first racism encounter

Kanye West believes he has a better ”perspective” of the world after experiencing racism first-hand as a child.

Kanye West says experiencing racism as a child gave him a better ”perspective” of the world.

The ‘Bound 2‘ rapper recalled an incident when he was just ten-years-old and he was subjected to racial prejudice. He told Paper magazine: ”When I was 10 years old I lived in China, and at the time they used to come up to me and rub my face to see if the colour would rub off.

”It was really f***ed up, but I feel like it was preparing me for a world perspective that a lot of my friends who never got a chance to travel didn’t get.

Now my perspective, a lot of times, is so much wider than someone who’s limited to the concept of any particular so-called world that’s not the real world.”

The 37-year-old rapper – who has 22-month-old daughter North with wife Kim Kardashian West – previously revealed he thinks the term racism is a ”dated concept”.

He said: ”Racism is a dated concept. It’s like a silly concept that people try to touch on to either … to separate, to alienate, to pinpoint anything.

It’s stupid. It’s like a bouncing ball in a room with two cats, or something, when you don’t feel like playing with a cat. ”Let them literally fight over the bouncing ball.

And the bouncing ball has nothing, no purpose, anything other than that: It bounces. That’s racism. It’s not an actual thing that even means anything.”
