Hip-hop star KANYE WEST is advising his white counterparts that they can only use certain slang terms when they're out of style for black people.
The JESUS WALKS rapper - who recently charged that US President GEORGE W BUSH "doesn't care" about African Americans - believes that certain slang words should only be able to cross racial barriers when they're no longer in style for black people.
He says, "I think white people are allowed to say 'bling'. They are allowed to say old-school black slang, like 'hottie' and 'homie'.
"Actually, I do not think that (white people) are allowed to use slang until it is at least a year old. If you say a slang word too early, it's like you're trying to be black. So as long as the slang is a little played out, you're all good."

Kanye be nuthin' but a jive turkey!
I think that Kanye West needs to get an education-- do something useful with his life, and stop making idiot comments to the media. He's making himself look bad.
Coming from the guy who was on the cover of Newsweek (Time?), where they said something to the effect that he was the "new face" (ie 'clean') face of rap music.
He doesn't want white people to use terms blacks use. Hmmmm. Sounds racist to me....
Is dis Kayne fo real?
I hear that bling is passé and *frosting* is what the hip n rich black people call their jewelry they're displaying
Other people think like him and they are actually allowed to vote
Clearly he's a racist.
so ebonics becomes the official language of the nation replacing english
are the majority of african-americans that naive that they do not comprehend the reason of their poverty?
Is this the same person that had his producer shot at his house? And, of course, no one saw anything.
"hottie" is black slang?
FREE SPEECH FOR ALL
That's exactly what it is. His statements indicate that he asserts that one race has a superior or exclusive culture. The foundation for almost all forms of racism.
