Known for always making a statement, Kanye West has been making a conscious effort to reshape the meaning behind the Confederate flag. Known primarily as a symbol for white supremacy. Recently the rapper decided to pay a visit to Barney’s which has been in hot water recently for racial profiling. The rapper commented on his recent fashion choice to L.A.’s 97.1 AMP

“React how you want … Any energy is good energy. You know the Confederate flag represented slavery in a way – that’s my abstract take on what I know about it. So I made the song “New Slaves.” So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It’s my flag. Now what are you going to do?”

West later offered his opinion on the now well-known incident at Barney’s that involved a college student on work study being arrested and racially profiled after his purchase at Barney’s. The rapper shared his views at his concert in Las Vegas.
“Don’t touch anything in the store. Excuse me, that’s that “Can I help you, sir?” That’s that racial profiling out in front of Barneys and sh-t. Talking about, “Did you steal that?”
