Destinee's Third Blog
This picture is significant for many reasons. Kanye West made a comment that he was going to be the next Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela is basically the Ghandi of South Africa. He was at the forefront of the South African people's fight for independence and racial equality and was the first South African president to be elected democratically. Kanye West is just a hip-hop singer that everyone once loved. Kanye was loved in the beginning of his career because he was humble and made songs people could relate to. Recently, Kanye began to call himself God and gives off the impression that he is greater than God. Once Kanye began to do those things, his fan base dropped tremendously. It is impossible for Kanye to be the next Nelson Mandela because Mandela never compared himself to God, and Kanye has never made any effort to bring equality. Instead, he separates himself from the rest of the world and looks at himself as a higher and superior being. People grew angry from his comment and began to talk about his family. His wife Kim Kardashian has made numerous sex tapes and his childs name is North West. Neither of those are professional based but are somehow simi-accepted in todays society. Mandela carried himself in a civilized manner and did not do anything that would jeopardize his reputation, unlike Kanye. Kanye should have never made that comment and on one would have made fun of his family.
