Kanye landed in NYC last night, playing his Glow In The Dark tour show at MSG again. During the show, he decided to teach his audience a life lesson. It went a little something like this:
"Open your fucking minds. Open your minds. Be accepting of different people and let people be who they are. You know how many people came to me calling me gay cause I wear my jeans the fresh way? Or because I said hey, dude, how you gonna say 'fag' right in front of a gay dude's face and act like that's ok. That shit is disrespectful. Coming from Chicago, where if you saw somebody that was gay you were supposed to stay ten feet away. It should be time to break out of the intuitions that I was sayin', the steretypes, or the fear, the backlash that I would get if you don't believe in what I believe in, acceptin' people for who they are…they're very talented and if they do something special in the world and they're discriminated. I've flown across the world y'all, and I've come back here to tell you — open your minds and live a happier life…"
What do you think? Is it necessary to provide commentary about life to your audience who probably paid through the roof for their ticket? Or is Kanye making a difference with his speech?
