Kanye thinks everyone hates his interracial relationship. Are his claims well-founded?
I am sure most of you have heard and read about Kanye West’s infamous epic rants. And this time, it's about how people hate his interracial relationship with Kim Kardashian. Reason: He is a black man and she is White.
Kanye told the Daily Mail: "You have to be able to take the lashes of people not understanding. Two years of people not understanding an interracial relationship..., you have to take the lash and be able to swim in the backlash." Apparently, he believes it has taken two years and and their appearance on the cover of Vogue fashion magazine for their interracial relationship to garner acceptance.
Well, its not uncommon for people to lash at a famous black man for dating or marrying a white (or non-black) woman. But in this case, most people think Kanye is pushing this whole "hate" thing. Here is what The Beat had to say:

"At some point someone needs to tell Yeezus to come down off the cross…nobody is crucifying him because his wife is not black. And we’re actually getting irritated with the entire conversation. Especially since we don’t think we’ve ever seen Kim with anything but black men to begin with!"
Sonya Eskridge in an article on the New Pittsburgh Courier also shares a similar view saying: "…we just had to laugh"
"The idea that the majority of people get salty because of a little swirl is worth a giggle in this case. He’s dated ladies of all different colors in the past, and he almost married a black woman before getting with Amber Rose.
Not to mention, people have been seeing Kimmy cuddled up with black men for years! She became famous as the result of her interracial romance with Ray J. There was also her high profile relationship Reggie Bush. The public is so accustomed to seeing Kim... with black men...
If anything, much of the criticism for Kim and Kanye’s love can be directly traced back to the fact that it didn’t take them long to hook up after she filed divorce from Kris. She dumped Kris after just 72 days of marriage and promptly fell into Kanye’s arms, so people were giving them epic amounts of side eye."
What do you think of Kanye’s claims?
Does the mass really abhor his relationship to Kim only because they are not of the same race or is this just another one of his rants?
Help me people: Does he really think that their relationship had to get some 'seal of approval' from a major fashion magazine for people to accept it?
