Kanye West, Kim Kardashian Suing Youtube Co-founder Over Proposa

You know, the Confederate flag represented slavery, in a way thats my abstract take on what I know about it, right? He then went on to say he has the right to comment on the Confederate flag and rebrand it, simply because he made the song New Slaves, which seems to tie into the theory that Kanyes every move is more for publicity than authenticity. So I made the song New Slaves, he continued. So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. Its my flag now! Now what are you gonna do? The irony is that Kanye seems to be branding himself a new slave, and yet he isnt actually interested in fighting against what he says that represents. <br>Source:

We went to the studio with Kanye, Mike Will told MTV's RapFix. We went right back to work. We made sure - boom. We watched the VMAs a little bit, but we went straight to the studio really. We're just touching the beat up a little bit, but it's about done. It's sounding crazy. Mike added: Ye is somebody who understands. <br>Source:

"Hurley is well aware of such contractual restrictions -- including not to usurp a person's right to tell a story on his or her own terms, and for his or her own emotional and financial benefit," the suit reads. "Hurley proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else." The suit also acknowledges that Kardashian and West had given rights to MC Cable Television , part of the Kardashians' E! network. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are entertainers. Entertainers get paid for their work, the suit continues. <br>Source:

"Whether it was a plan to give Beyonce the award at the end, we still haven't seen a video as good as that video, like, five years later. There still hasn't been a video that good." Kanye also believes that social media is changing the face of contemporary music. "The kids now have Instagram and can't be controlled by radio and can't be controlled by TV, he said. I love the Backstreet Boys' songs, so if any of them are listening, no knock to them, but there will never be another Backstreet Boys! Not in this day Kim Kardashian breast and age. <br>Source:

Kanye West co-opts Confederate flag: Publicity stunt or way to prompt debate?

Surprise, surprise. Of course, it's part of a publicity thing," said Harvard University law professor Randall Kennedy , adding that that doesn't preclude it from being useful, interesting or justifiable. Kennedy, whose half dozen books on race visit this site include "Nigger: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word," said there are parallels between groups co-opting epithets and West co-opting the flag, "But listen, n----r is still a term of abuse used to terrify people and hurt people." There are both positive and negative potential upshots to West's campaign, Kennedy said. If it lessens someone's anxiety about seeing the flag or diminishes the symbol's "power to intimidate," it's a win, but if people forget what the flag stood for or become too ignorant about its meaning to counter claims that it's merely a symbol of state's rights, there could be detriment. "Here were people who were willing to fight and die in order to enslave people, and that shouldn't be forgotten," Kennedy said. Cook said that if West wanted to meaningfully take on a hot-button social issue, there are more effective ways of doing it. <br>Source:

You know the Confederate flag represented slavery in a way -- that's my abstract take on what I know about it. <br>Source:
