Los Angeles – Rapper Kanye West recently drew comparisons between his battle with the paparazzi and the civil rights movement. As reported by Us Weekly, West made the comments in a deposition in the case in which he allegedly hit a photographer at LAX last year.
West, who is married to Kim Kardashian, is quoted as stating in response to being asked about his “Flashing Lights” song, during which the attorney for the photographer used the n-word in reciting a line, “It offends me because you’re a white person saying n—a.”
The rapper further replied when being asked whether he was drawing parallels between past struggles of minorities and celebrities in present day, “Yes, 100…I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities.”
West went on to say, “We, as group of minorities here in L.A., as celebrities have to ban together to influence guys like this… Guys trying to take the picture, guys trying to get the big win, guys trying to get the check.”
