If you ask Kanye West what he thinks about his soon-to-be family, the rapper will tell you how they are a positive influence on America. During an interview with 95.5 WPGC radio, West opened up about his fiancé Kim Kardashian and her family.
He's gushed about falling in love with the reality star in past interviews but this time he spoke about how the entire family is changing America's view on interracial dating and letting people know love has no boundaries, the Daily Mail reports.
"A lot of what the Kardashians do, I don't think they get enough credit for what they do," he said. "They prep America to accept interracial relationships."
He went on to explain that he thinks his relationship with Kardashian could be used as an example for other people who want to be in interracial relationships.
"I'm not talking about me, I can hop on a plane. I can date a white woman, I can date a black woman, and no matter what they say in the barber shop don't matter, because I don't get my haircut there," West said.
"For the people that do, though, there's a white woman that's getting talked down to by her friends because she's dating a black guy," he continued. "Now you've got a point of reference that you can say, 'Well, actually this couple right here, that's dope.'"
The rapper didn't speak about wedding plans this time but it's been rumored that the "Yeezus" rapper will be tying-the-knot with his fiancé next summer and the wedding could be televised. According to US Weekly, the couple has talked it about and would only consider broadcasting their wedding for a large amount of money.
"If they choose to film the wedding, it will be filmed by them, not a TV crew," the source said. "And they'd sell it to a network."
