    him not being followed may be true because the inner city of Atlanta is extremely high demographically with minority residents.   The black community generally does not profile but West thinks he is white so he is basically following the racist old white man's train of thought...that or he is lying but he is really loony tunes.

    The AA commuity needs to bring back Black is beautiful so people like West won't try to be an old white racist. Confederate carrying possibly KKK card member and all. (snark)

      I have a feeling that even when he left Atlanta and went into the army, he was just oblivious.  "They act that way because I'm a Plebe" or "they act that way because I'm junior" and so on, subconsciously bottling it in until he blew up.  

      Which he did, and which got him 86'd.

      I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
