I think by now we can all agree that Kanye West has, at the very least, a slightly elevated opinion of himself and his place in the world. So as much as this will make you roll your eyes, you probably won't be the least bit surprised:
Kanye believes that celebrities dealing with the paparazzi go through EXACTLY what blacks did during the Civil Rights movement.
This asininity spewed forth from Kanye's exhaust pipe during a deposition in the lawsuit he's facing from a paparazzi scumbag he roughed up at an airport.
Kanye said, "In the '60s people used to hold up 'Die [N-word]' signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also." Asked if he was equating the two things, he said, "I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities."
He also referred to celebrities as, "a group of minorities here in L.A."
And here's an unrelated from Kanye, directed at the plaintiff's lawyer, "I'm the smartest celebrity you've ever [effing] dealt with. I'm not Britney Spears. I'm in the business of trying to make dope [stuff] for the world. You're in the business of representing scums and trying to make as much money as long as there's this lapse in the law."
