Kanye West Explains Obama's Presidential Shortcomings: "Black People Don't Have Same Connections As Oil Or Jewish People!"

| Filed under: PolitikKanye WestBarack ObamaGIFs

kanye west political barack obama sweater sunshine morning

Sway may not have the answers, but Kanye does!

At least he thinks so, that's for sure!

Mr. West has said a lot about President Obama lately, and a lot of it hasn't been so good, but surprise — he still has his back on at least one issue!

In an interview with New York's Power 105.1, Yeezy tried to explain why the Prez hasn't been able to accomplish as much as he would have liked, saying:

"We don’t got it like that. When I tell you only seven black billionaires, look at marginalization, and we feel like we happy because me and Rick Ross got it made, or I got a spread outside, a couple of us, or they put a black president.

Man, let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can't make these moves or he's not executing. That's because he ain't got those connections. Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don't have the same connection as oil people.

You know we don't know nobody that got a nice house. You know we don’t know nobody with paper like that we can go to when we down. You know they can just put us back or put us in a corporation. You know we ain’t in situation. Can you guarantee that your daughter can get a job at this radio station? But if you own this radio station, you could guarantee that. That’s what I’m talking about."

Uhhhh… okay. What about O being his own man??

We mean, we really try hard to understand Kanye when he philosophizes, but we gotta ask — is it okay defending one culture by generalizing and perpetuating stereotypes of others??

Or do U think he's simply speaking the truth of today's world?

    KANYE stop always playing the damn victim! Theres no need to bring up jews in shit Obama cant do.

  2. 2

    Kayne's wealthy only because all of his fans sell their FOOD STAMPS & WIC Coupons to buy his crappy records & concert tickets…..

  3. WOW! says – reply to this


    I don't think he realizes what he's saying. He sounds uneducated and ignorant. I hope his career suffers somewhat form his nonsensical comments because it's not okay to rant whenever you don't get your way. There's a a million things that don't go my way and I sure as hell don't have the money he has nor the luxury of a life he has and I don't blame the Jews, the Asians or whomever else. I can't nor will ever understand how Kim sits behind him during interviews with a beaming smile on her face as he continues to bury himself deeper and deeper in shit and mentioning how the President mentions THEM to stay relevant. You need help Mr. West. Serious help.

  4. 4

    It's true. Just look at insitutions like Hollywood which is run by Jews and/or people who are at least partly Jewish. That's how Natalie Portman & Hailee Steinfeld got into acting. Their synagogue connections. About 80% of directors and actors are Jewish. If you're not Jewish in Hollywood then you need to be screwing someone who is in order to get ahead. Watch the credits at the end of any movie and you'll see the majority of last names are Jewish.

    Where is this jiggaboo from? Can't he speak English? Even American English would be acceptable

  6. The Truth says – reply to this


    Playing the victim and being a Racist at the same time, Kanye where do you go from here.

    The Truth Hurts

  7. 7

    Why can't he speak English! Surely he has enough "paper" to hire a god damned tutor! He sounds like a wannabe thug / modern day ghetto Yoda. STFU already and go back to wearing your overtly feminine clothes and dressing your porn star… oh sorry…. "baby momma".

  8. 8

    Every time he opens his mouth, $hit falls out.

  9. 9

    Are subtitles available?

  10. 10

    he sounds like a total nutcase. don't know if that is his normal state or his new state of kardashawhore. men don't do well with that family.

  11. 11

    Look at it this way people….Kayne's engaged to the sleaziest PISS-PORN-WHORE skank in the world, and had a human-chimpanzee hybrid with her….

    Let's just laugh.

  12. please Go Away!!!!! says – reply to this


    people take a stand unfollow kanye and kim if you really want them to go away .

  13. 13

    How embarrassing. He really should just stop talking.

    Re: The Truth – He's not being a racist…? And all of you who says he's a nut job or he's ignorant or stupid, you haven't understand ANYTHING about life my fellows. This is EXACTLY how the world works. Obama may be 'his own man' but anyone who'd believe that he actually calls the shot in this country is just a fool. WAKE UP AMERICANS, YOU'RE AS BRAINWASHED AS NORTH KOREANS!

    Obama are rasist !!

  21. Girly says – reply to this


    What bothers me here is that he insinuates that everyone that is not black has all of these crazy good opportunities & automatically live in the lap of luxury…which is not true. Just because someone is white or light skinned or anything for that matter, doesn't mean they're living the good life. It's the spreading of this nonsense that just encourages racism and keeps the rift going. If he's really concerned about people not having opportunity, maybe he should use some of the millions he has to do some good with it or help change things, instead of just spouting a bunch of bs to make people hate each other even more.

  22. Vreeland says – reply to this


    Some comparisons Kanye should make between Jews & Blacks
    Jews work really hard to succeed, instill the impotence of education in their children at an early age
    Blacks sit back watching Oprah, wallowing in self pity, and want everybody else to raise, & feed their kids
    Jews come from families
    Blacks single mothers
    Jews follow religion
    Blacks follow Rev AL

  23. 23

    Earlier this week, he said that Obama needed to drop his and Kim's names because they were more relevant, but it seems as thought Kanye is the one who can't stop bringing up the president's name in conversation because he knows that that will bring him more press. Whose irrelevant now?

  24. ÑeñeAntigüedadNickW says – reply to this


    So… blacks are racists against jewish???

  25. rarrr says – reply to this


    Obama is rasist !

  26. Dr. Fienbein says – reply to this


    I don't like Mr. West but I have to agree that blacks (in general) have less power than Jews and oil people (Persians?).

  27. kelly says – reply to this


    Kanye is a disgusting hypocrite. Bringing the Jews into why Obama is a crappy president??? What is next…slavery was worse than the holocaust? Or will he even admit that happened? It is baffling to me how someone can use their race to justify all the bad. Give me a break Kanye. And lastly, if you are one of the few succesful black people in the world then why don't you donate your money and help out your less fortunate black brothers and sisters then buying multiple $10million mansions. Hypocrite.

  28. 28

    Kayne's a "BOTTOM" just like his fiance'…..

  29. Common Sense says – reply to this


    Obama was/is just a president who could not execute. There is still a recession, the healthcare idea was horrible timing, he should of focused most his time on the economy and his both his terms was in office it seems he was more interested in meeting and hanging out with celebrities. Now, for Kanye, look how you talk. If anyone walked into an interview (Black, White, Jewish and "Oil People") they would have no chance at getting hired. Your grammar is pathetic. The key to any success is education. Now, the President may have failed as The Commander and Chief, although he isn't a failure in life.

    like someone said "i liked kanye west not kanye kardashian", now his music is cerbage and do nothing for it ! he doesn't seem to understand that he's not the same anymore ! just shut it ! stop making a fool of yourself ! what he thinks he's better than anybody else ! he's just got the big head ! poor boy ! you are not malcom x or tupac, that's for sure !!!

  31. caravaggio south west says – reply to this


    Kanye West, like most Americans, simply does not know what is going on and how the world works. Ohh yes there IS a disgusting Order of Things… but he may have just shot himself in the foot.

  32. kimwhore says – reply to this


    it's absolutely ridiculous - obama's mother is white CIA agent … so he is not even black. another stupid anti semitic hollywood troll …

    keep talking dumb azz. The more this idiot opens his mouth the more he is turning off even his fans. I just cannot believe it that no one is stopping him. Kim is without no doubt sabotaging him behind the scenes. She is loving the attention he is bringing to her and again she is so stupid that she just isn't seeing that they will never be a power couple because they are an embarrassment. Kim running around after getting some of the fat sucked out of her butt just so she can appear to have lost a lot of weigh, her new nose that she is clearly so proud of that she is practically walking side ways to ensure that profile shot. I must say watching them crash and burn has been amusing. I wonder what Jay Zee and Beyoncé think of these idiots. Then there is poor Khloe who is so desperate to stay relevant that even half way around the world she is still beeking off in defence of Kim and you never hear Kim or the rest of the family backing up Khloe. So pathetic. Keep talking morons you are turning off the world with your smiles. lol

    Re:Demi's fat ass – I want you to die, fucking delusional, hypocritical, obsessed, slandering, stalking pathological liar. You're desperate to have the last word and look cool playing keyboard warrior but it only reinforces how much of a childish cyberbully you really are. Go on - play the victim! You started this whole thing and I'll finish it, slut-tits.

  42. I know says – reply to this


    Kanye is impotent. Even when he talks about being creative its to create a product to sell so he can become rich and in his mind, have more power. Why is he so obsessed with criticizing, or comparing himself to others with power? Is it really his feeling of lack of power ?

  43. Zaina says – reply to this


    Re: Zaina Is A Cyberbully – Nope you started it…OMG DEATH THREATS! I am appalled!

  44. melly says – reply to this


    Re: Zaina – Perhaps you need to research what a death threat is. Saying you want someone to die isn't, but saying you'll kill them is. You really are a stupid stalker.

  45. Nina says – reply to this


    Kanye, STOP speaking the "truth." You're an uneducated fool. Stop comparing yourself to people like Jesus, God, and Walt Disney. Obama does not mention your name to stay relevant. Kim is not the next Marilyn Monroe. North is not the royal baby. Who are you?! You're so delusional it upsets me.
    I cringe every time Perez posts about this guy.

  46. vc blackwell says – reply to this


    How does this racist, Kanye, justify his white fiance and his half white baby???? And please don't say he isn't one. He's made too many slurs to deny it. I would call him a character, but he has none.

  47. UglyMichelle says – reply to this


    Obama's white grandparents had money and he went to private school in Hawaii (he also went by Barry back then). Obama has never been poor and do to his connections in Chicago he won't ever be. Most people have different connections but we can all get along. Kanye West is just a rapper, nothing more. He's not a messiah and he should not looked up to by anyone. I mean he goes on and on about black people blah blah blah and if I'm not mistaken, Kim Kardashian is not black. I mean there are millions of strong black women and he chose KK? He's just like Harry Belafonte, Charles Barkley, Quincy Jones and all these people who talk about how hard they've struggled yet choose to date/marry white women. Obama sucks as president no matter what color he is and we should be allowed to criticize him without being called racist. It's old and stupid.

  48. PC WrongnessISRight says – reply to this


    The problem with black people: 88 average IQ. Of course 88 IQ people arent going to have the same connections as 107-110 IQ jewish people or 106 IQ japanese people. Black females were never, thru history, able to breed with high IQ males (where high IQ babies come from). In the tribal days, it was the muscular tribesman she wanted (for survival reasons). Not the nerdy tribal inventor who innovated some tribal technology. And, during slave times, she wasnt able to breed with high IQ black males because they were impossible to identify as a slave (jewish women knew who the jewish doctors were). Then slavery ended and white culture invented a "dont chase rich men, gold digger" rule which black women were dumb enough to follow even today (Unlike jewish women and asian women who marry the richest highest IQ american men per head). This further made it difficult for black females to breed properly. Now here babies cant even structure sentences. "how come I cants get me no corporate job, man? Is it because I be black?" 1000s of years of chasing brawn instead of nerds and rich men (the higher IQ genetics).

  49. pc WrongnessISRight says – reply to this


    "Now here babies cant even structure sentences" (D'oh!)

  50. pc WrongnessISRight says – reply to this


    And thats just one half of the problem with black culture (black females love for brawn over brain which produces muscular babies not nerdy babies). The other half is… their violence rate. That scares away investors and Jobs. That scares away good school teachers. That scares away richer blacks and educated blacks. Black crime scares rich higher IQ black males out of the ghetto which makes it hard for black women to meet such genetic material. There goes more than just the neighborhood. Google the top most dangerous american cities (in terms of murders) and then google population demographics and see how many blacks are in it. Detroit for example. A murder rate of more than 40 per 100,000 citizens. Thats one of the highest in the world. So thats their problem. Even if all racism vanished.. they'd still be anchored to the bottom by those two problems. Those problems can be fixed…but not by some guy on the net. It all boils down to black females learning how to breed wiser. Breed jewish/asian style. "are you a rich high IQ nerd??"…"er yah".. "marry meeeee!!!!"

    Re: lei – Shut up and get some real problems. You can't compare the lives of North americans to north koreans. North Koreans are brutally oppressed and abused, do you have any idea what goes on there, and in countries like it? Yes, american life has some really shitty aspects to it of you arent rich, but i'll be damned if you compare american life, to life under the rule of an psychopath.

  57. FlashPanTilly says – reply to this


    Re: frusciante – Google ashkenazi intelligence. Jews had no connections in the beginning. No connections to anything. Jews were a hated people, historically. Jews EARNED their way to the top by being so phenomenally intelligent. Jews didn't KILL their way to the top like most races and cultures did. Jews THUNK their way to the top. Rather than emulating that success, people prefer to scorn it. SHRUG

  58. flashPanTilly says – reply to this


    I have an idea. How about he and kim go create a black hollywood in kenya or something? There's a Bollywood and a Hollywood. Why not a Nairobiwood? Become a creator not a whiner. Become a milk giver not a teat sucker. And then the world can sit on the edge of our seats in excitement waiting for the next great hit action film releases coming out of Nairobiwood. He has enough money to plant the seeds of something grand like that.
    Kanye could be the founder of Nairobiwood.

  59. Jessie says – reply to this


    LOL. He's an idiot. Kanye doesn't have connections? He has no problem speaking out against Jews, but he says "oil" instead of Saudi/Arab oil, because he knows they will come after him (with good right). Kanye, you're a little baby who whines. You're not even that talented, so tell me you poor little rich boy, how did you make it without your connections.

  60. @v@ says – reply to this


    You won't have the same connections if you don't run in the same circles. 99% of caucasians don't run in those moneyed circles. It's not just one race. It's every race, and the human condition. You have to work your way out of it. Kanye should know about that. A human being is ultimately self determined. If you don't have connections, you need to establish some. There is some truth to his observations, but his observations aren't anything new or profound for anyone who's been on the earth a little longer than he has. He's not making any new discoveries here.

  61. @v@ says – reply to this


    On another note, he looks cute as hell up there in that gif. Great smile.

    Does this man actually think he is speaking the English language? He's the that needs to get some education. He can't form a full sentence. He has NO CLUE when it comes to speaking English! And now he's bringing Jews in his mess of a universe? What the? All I can think of is Run Kim Run!!
    She seems to abide by anything he says, letting her common sense fly out the window. Do they really have conversations in this weird language that he's seemed to have made out of his own narcissistic, egotistical mind! He is an absolute CRAZY man. My first clue, or notice of him was when he totally made a fool of himself when he ran onstage, again, like a madman and swiped the mike from Taylor. That was my first clue that this guy is not all there.
    I don't blame Bruce for moving out. How would you like to be around that maniac 24/7?
    They could never have a 1 hr conversation with this nut!
    Has Kim gone Zombie or what? Poor little North West (that in itself says something about the parents right there). Kanye is only about social climbing, status, self-importance, and being God….which is SO not!!!

    Re: Vreeland – Um, I'm black and I don't watch Oprah, I have children and I raise them and teach them accordingly, both are in universities now and im a single parent. You should stop with your childish stereotypes and narrow mindedness. There are blacks who don't fit your ignorant descriptions.Stop judging a race of people by what you here on radio or see on television. All white people are not bad and the same goes for other races of people.

  69. 69

    yes, kanye is right. if you dont have connections like he mentions the jews have, then you dont have the kind of career guarantees that others (often) get (handed to them).
    it's something bigger than obama.
    really if the avergae american knew that they needed obama's whole team voted in, in the form of democrat representation in the senate and the house of reps to stamp out the old white guys they would. failin' s.palin is included in that stamp out.
    in order to provide more choice, change that has to happen.
    what he is also saying is that a kind of slavery still exists because of that.
    America isn't free when people have to live off 'tips' instead of being paid a wage.
    America isn't free when most other countries have health insurance choices- that is, some of it 'free'- provided by taxes, and other health insurance is available in a wide range of choices.
    America is in debt- and it hasn't been due to spending on health or wage improvements- THAT is shameful and scandalous!

    The hypocrisy in these comments; you disagree with him, and then try to insult him with racism like he gave you some pass. Truly pathetic. No it doesn't mean that you have life good automatically if you are light skinned, but having dark skin would put you at even more of a disadvantage. All you have to do is look at the socially constructed society to see that.

    Stop using a colloquial way of speaking as a way to make your self feel superior, while looking down on others like a very snobby person. Words are words.

    Look at your terribly constructed sentences, lack of grammar and the fact that you can't even spell "mic". You are a hypocrite. This is a colloquial form of speaking, which exists everywhere. Publishing this word for word is also going to magnify this, and make it seem far worse.
