When the President Calls You a Jackass...

When the President calls you a jackass, it's pretty much a given that you're not to be taken seriously. Not when you use your vip status to bully an innocent fifteen-year-old. But the story's less about public humiliation and more about a young man who's still mourning his mother's death. That's the hype we should be paying attention to, if we really want to address Black male rage. Because that's the basis of Kanye's pain, like every other young nubian who feels marginalized. So you act out, at whatever cost,
since attention is attention.
