It’s a black program so naturally he got selected seventeen times, that’s the way it is. There are many other black performers who are much better; personally I think that he is ignorant and has no talent. Kanye might hate whites which is fine with me, but he is so proud to be dating and sleeping with ( a nicer way of saying f–king ) someone with white skin. He is always tweeting about nasty sex with Kim, sort of sounds like he has no respect for her. Kanye is no gentleman though, he’s a street thug who appeals to the low-lives in America today! HE’S NASTY!!!!!!! I would say the same things I just said to his ugly face; he is totally disgusting, and I do not care for him. A retired bi-racial teacher from the South.

I agree. Publicity for his clothes line. They both love the camera. Duck lips NEEDS to go. SO sick of the both of them AND the family. Ugly coulpe! REALLY! He needs to get that underbite taken care of, and she needs to STOP using botox and go back to sleazy motel rooms where she started. If anybody DIDN’T deserve fame and fortune, it is THEM!
