Like the clocks going back in October, there’s a regularity to future-president Kanye West spouting off in interviews, but the rapper, fashion designer and occasional member of the extended Kardashian clan has embraced his unusual views and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.
In a lengthly interview with fashion website SHOWStudio, West discussed his upcoming album (currently titled Swish, but he’s got plenty of time to change his mind again), his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, and a number of other areas.
His most unusual lines, though, concern the future of humanity (obviously), something that West has been giving considerable thought.
“In 1,000 years we might be completely known as what we know as black currently,” he muses. “But it would just be known as a new race, except for those people whose main goal would be to keep the purity of separatism.”
He says he sees the future as people being ‘mixed’, and that “the world is mixing”, and admitted that as a child he was discouraged from being attracted to white girls.
“I was taught to never bring a white girl home when I was eight years old. I liked white girls, and also I liked black girls, but I liked white girls too.
“I’ll tell you from my single days that white women do like black guys. There’s something about what mixing the cultures brings to the table.”
He also mentioned that he had praise for the Jewish community, saying he was inspired by their focus on family and support.
“I have a lot of Jewish friends!" he said. "That culture is one that shares information - that doesn’t happen in the black community!”
