  • In the unaired comments, Kanye claimed that “fake children” appeared at his house to sexualize his kids. He also had a problem with his children learning about Kwanzaa and said he’s rather them learn about Hanukkah because “at least it will come with some financial engineering.”

  • In Kanye’s rant about Jewish people, he clarified the word “Jew,” saying, “When I say Jew, I mean the 12 lost tribes of Judah,” he said. “The blood of Christ, who the race—the people known as the race Black really are. This is who our people are. The blood of Christ. This, as a Christian, is my belief.”

  • Kanye West appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to defend his and others’ “White Lives Matter” t-shirts.

  • The rapper said the answer to why he wrote “White Lives Matter” on a shirt is because “they do…it’s the obvious thing.” Kanye said the reason the saying is controversial is that “the same people who have stripped us from our identity and labeled us as a color have told us what it means to be black and the vernacular we’re supposed to have.”

  • Kanye claims he felt compelled to speak out after backing with Donald Trump, and he and others who wear the shirt have been threatened with physical assault.
