Kanye West Speaks Out Against Barneys Racial Profiling Incidents

Never one to bite his tongue, Kanye West weighs in on the Barneys New York racial profiling controversy during a show on his Yeezus tour.

While on tour in Las Vegas, ‘Ye drew parallels between the alleged racial profiling at the New York luxury department store and his ‘New Slaves.’ “That’s that broke n—- racism. Don’t touch anything in the store. Excuse me that’s that, ‘Can I help you sir?’ That’s that racial profiling out in front of Barneys and s—. Talking about, ‘Did you steal that?’” he says.

Ye angrily walked around the stage, wearing a mask and his new Red October Yeezys. He spoke about how high-end retailers want him to spend money in another form of racial profiling. “And it’s that rich n—- racism, that’s come in… ‘Come in Ye, please buy more, please buy more!’”

Jay Z, who has partnered with Barneys for A New York Holiday collection, is being urged to end his relationship with the company. In a statement he released regarding the racial profiling incidents, Hov explains that facts will drive him to make a decision. “I move and speak based on facts and not emotion. I haven’t made any comments because I am waiting on facts and the outcome of a meeting between community leaders and Barneys,” he states.
