“Jesus Walks” with Kim & Amber!
By Khalil Amani
*Kanye West deserves Charlamange's "Donkey of the Day" for putting Wiz's kid in this fuckery over biting Max B's "Wave" for his next album title. Can somebody please tell Kanye that he doesn't have a copywriter or a patent on the letter "KK?" Furthermore, whatever Kanye has to say about Amber Rose, at least we didn't see a dick in her mouf! NOW!
Sorry! This editorial is not an attack on Kim Kardashian or Amber Rose. Unlike many of you that would call Kim a “whore” for making a sex tape with Ray J and capitalizing off of it—I think it was a grand move of epic proportions for Kim to set herself up for life—financially speaking—Or Amber being a stripper at age 14 and both of them “Breaking the Internet” with their beautiful, bootylicious bods—they ain’t got shit to be ashamed of! (And if you’re worried about how they will explain this to their child/ren one day, I say, “Fuck’em!” as they pull those silver spoons out of their moufs that “whoredom” provided them. And besides that, the lil nigglets will have done enough childhood & adult dirt that will prolly pale in comparison to Mama K & Mama A.)
If you have a problem with nudity, you have a problem with God! For God made a naked male & female and said it was, "Very good" (Genesis 1:31). Don't get uptight when Kim & Amber break these Internetz with all that azz! Get mad that you have been brainwashed by Judeo-Christian coonery, which has ascribed "nasty," "dirty," and "shameful" to God's beautifully sculptured creation, the human body! Where you see "whore," I see God!
I don’t buy into this “woman-as-whore-man-as-stud” b/s based on how many sex partners a person has had. The demonizing of women who’ve had many sex partners is a sexist, male-chauvinistic ideology, which can be dated back to that pseudo-sacred piece of paper that has been the foundation for keeping women under foot—da Bible! Moreover, the only way we know about the very few men that Kim & Amber have dated—Reggie Bush, Ray J, Chris Humphries, Kanye & Wiz Khalifa is because they are famous public figures.
Man or woman reading this editorial—how many people have you sexed dated? How many no-name, insignificant, irrelevant people have you had one night stands with, two month sex rumps with? How much pussy eating cunnilingus, dick sucking fellatio and fucking coitus have you had? Dare I say that you might be more of a “whore” than Kim & Amber? The nerve of humans to think that fucking famous men for money (or not) is an egregious use of the temple (body), but a life-time of jumping in and out of men’s beds in the pursuit of the "Holy Grail of Relationships"—marriage—is an honorable thingy! (F.O.H.!) Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose, you’re all right with me! Keep breaking the Internet!
But Kim’s husband?
Kanye West is up to his shenanigans again; this time, throwing the black woman (in this case, Amber Rose) under the proverbial bus, in favor of the American standard of beauty, the white woman (Kim Kardashian). You can argue that Amber Rose isn’t black and Kim K. isn’t white, but racist America has already placed these women in their prospective racial boxes. Amber Rose is ours black people and Kim K. belongs to that other race.
Now! If you were under a hip-hop rock and missed Kanye’s stupidity, this is what he said on New York radio Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” about his former girlfriend Amber Rose in defending his wife, Kim Kardashian: “If Kim dated me when I first wanted to be with her, there wouldn’t be a Amber Rose.” Ye went on to say, “It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone who was with Amber Rose.” And then Kanye went in for the kill saying, “I had to take thirty  showers before I got with Kim.” Capping off his fuckery with, “I just want to be respectful” (towards Amber). Negro please! I hope Wiz slaps the dog-shit out of Kanye!
Was Amber Rose dirty when you were "shooting her club up?" Only bitch-de-fied niggas hate on what they used to love!
Well nigga, you weren’t respectful, so I shall “go-in” on you with all the disrespect I can muster up and I hope you feel some type-of-way and wanna address me! I’m about to give you some bible-learnin’ and show you that “Jesus Walks” with your wife and your ex-girl!
What kind of man watches a video of a woman sucking, fucking and swallowing another man’s load and desires to date, yea, marry that woman? Kanye West! Of all the women that Kanye could’ve had, he chose to marry the one that I—and millions of others have seen naked—up close and personal doing the nasty! Sigmund Freud would have a field-day deconstructing the mind-set of such a person, prolly concluding that it is not the woman he desires, but rather the man with the big dick elongated phallus that is the object of his affection and lust—"Projected Homosexuality" with underlying “Penis Envy”, if you will.
Like really. Most of us men are in relationships with women who were no virgins. The reality is that she’s sucked a dick or two or three or four or ten before we came on the scene, but because we’ve never seen the evidence, we can dismiss it from our minds. Kanye, on the other hand, has to see Ray J’s big dick every time he looks at Kim’s lips and va-jay-jay. That’s just what it is; no matter how he tries to feign like she’s been sitting on some pedestal of white womanhood. Kim is tainted, (sexually) dirty, and used—just as Amber and the rest of us are! How dare Kanye try to put white Kim on a sexually unblemished mantle—and, at the same time, destroy a black woman’s right to be a sexual creature!
And for Kanye to say that he had to take a Calgon bath “thirty times” before sexing Kim after being with Amber is ludacrisp! We all know Ray J has had a bevy of women at his disposal! How many times did Kim have to brush her teeth before Kanye wanted to smooch her? (Or was Freud right? Kanye desired to taste Ray J through Kim’s lips?) I’m so disrespectful!
Kanye likes to talk that “class, religion & race” ish, which separates humanity. Indeed they do, but he is a purveyor of that which he hates. The very fact that he’s chosen to date two women of (a higher) class & stature (Kim & Amber) proves that he is bitten by the class bug. What happened to that chick in Chicago you were banging when you were a nobody up-n-coming producer? That brown-skinned sista who held you down when you were eating Top Ramen?
Do you want some reality Mr. West? It is through the so-called “whore” that salvation is brought to humanity! Study mythology! Study religion! The so-called whore has always stood beside greatness and great men—from Samson & Delilah to Ahab & Jezebel to David & Bathsheba to Jesus & Mary Magdalene (one of 3 “Marys” in the New Testament who was falsely accused of being a prostitute by the Roman Church under Pope Gregory c.540-604, thus the label stuck to her back) right on down to Kennedy & Marilyn Monroe and Clinton & Monica Lewinsky. The “whore” has always been an integral part of the scene. Toni Morrison’s book, “Sula” is a classic example of the "Archetypal Whore" bringing salvation to the townspeople—giving people a reason to live, much like Kim & Amber give you Internet trolls a reason to live. In this same vein, Kim Kardashian & Amber Rose become hip-hop’s unrepentant "Archetypal Whores” (in y’all’s eye) who live the lifestyles of the "rich & shameless," while breaking Internetz. These women give you reason to live! These women make you feel morally superior!
“Jesus Walks” because of the whore! What do I mean? If it had not been for those women in history, which the “whore” label fell upon, there would be no Jesus! Don’t give me your perverted view that Jesus came from an untouched *virgin! (Virgin, in Hebrew is "Betula," yet the biblical writers used "Almah," which simply means "young girl, but not necessarily a virgin." Say word? Word!) The books in the Bible—St. Matthew & St. Luke clearly designates a birth-line genealogy to Jesus. And then scholars jumped all over Matthew & Luke’s genealogy, pointing out that at least four of Jesus’ female relatives fit the “Archetypal Whore”— Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba. They wrote things like, “One oddity about the genealogy [is] ...there is something questionable or even scandalous about the SEXUAL ACTIVITIES of each of these women…[the book of] Matthew might have been pointing out that God can use unusual means and imperfect persons to accomplish God’s plans” (Introduction to the Bible, Beasley et al. p.367).
The noted mythologist, Gerald Massey includes the Virgin Mary in the “Archetypal Whore” category writing, “The virgin [Mary] was also called the harlot [whore], because she represented the pre-monogamic stage of intercourse; she descended from four forms of the harlot—Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba" (Gerald Massey’s Lectures, p.5).
Indeed, Jesus sprang from 42 generations of whores and you wonder why he allowed prostitutes in his company? If you don't know, now you know!
Again! “Jesus walks” with Kim & Amber! They are your new-jack, 21st century Tamar, Rahab, Ruth & Bathsheba! Through their wombs may come a savior-son or a savior-daughter—someone who may shape or change the course of human history! This is what Kanye, in all of his “Jesus Walks” and Amber-bashing fails to realize! This is what many of you fail to realize in calling out Kim & Amber with your pseudo-righteous indignation and morally bankrupt spiritual & religious awareness.
Writing songs about Jesus and all is cool, but if Kanye really knew his Bible he’d know that no amount of bathing—not 30, 40, or 100 baths could wash himself clean of Amber Rose! Instead of letting Kim convince him of his filthiness for having sexed Amber, he should have been the teacher that he espouses to be and tell that chick (Kim) what the good books says in Isaiah 64:6—“But we are all as an unclean thing and all of our righteousness are as filthy rags.”
To Amber Rose. If you're reading this, know that you are a beautiful black woman, deserving of respect. You are God's daughter! He/She/It has Her hands firmly around you. You are not dirty and you are not whorish! Kanye is just stuck in his male-chauvinistic, paternalistic understanding of the Divine (God). Like most men, Kanye cannot handle your free-spirited sexuality. As dirty as he thinks you may be, his hit song, "Jesus Walks," yea, that whole album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" was inspired on your watch! You brought greatness out of him! Hold ya head high ma!
Kanye said it himself in his song, “Jesus Walks”—“To the hustlers, killers and murderers, drug dealers—even strippers (Jesus walks with them).” Well Kanye, I’ll do you one better! Not only does “Jesus walk” with them, Jesus says, “…verily [truly] I say unto you, that the publicans [hustlers, killers, murderers & drug dealers] and the harlots [strippers & prostitutes] go into the kingdom of God before you” (Matthew 21:31).
What shalt thou say now Mr. West? Between you and Wiz Khalifa, three children have been birthed from women that fit the “Archetypal Whores” in history. You can’t wash that away! Only pray that they change the world. May “Jesus walk” with them. Selah.
