Kanye West

Fashion Week in New York City is fast approaching. Musician and fashion mogul Kanye West is casting for models for his Yeezy Season 4 runway show.

Click the link below to make sure you meet the requirements before showing up for his casting call tomorrow.

West is looking for makeup-free "multiracial models" for his much-anticipated Yeezy Season 4 runway show.

"Makeup-free" is self-explanatory. You might go to the front of the line if you look Alicia Keys. You will be turned away if you look like Tamron Hall (as fine as she is).

"Multiracial" means exactly that. Don't show up to the casting call if one of your parents is not white or some other non-black race or ethnicity.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Fyi on this day in 2005, kanye said GWB doesn't care about black people... Neither does he #sellout

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    He doesn't specify a skin color I wonder if he will accept a dark skin mixed race Jamaican/West Indian/African chick? That's multi-racial right?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Bow wow and I have the same racial mixture (?) . I'm going to start telling folks my ass a mulatto too.

  • guest

    damn thats phuck up! So pretty much no sistas allowed!! SDMH. ANd we were the first to support his ugly black a$$! smdh

  • B.Sweet, Bad Mamma Jamma

    Instead of multiracial he should said exoticals only no black women and no white women.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    No. She just black mixed with some more black. She'd be considered multi-cultured not muliti -racial

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    are you going to DMV or something. What's with all the weekend posts?

  • Lisa daniels

    I think you know the answer to this. Ninjas like him think being mixed consist of one being light skinned with long hair. They dont go for the dark skinned ones like Tatyanna Ali.

  • Dakota H

    Kanye mind has been gone for a good minute now. I want the old Kanye back when he was down to earth and humble. Things like this keep people of color apart he should have been casting women of color of various shades. It would seem like people of color would want to help each other out. I wish I could go to the casting call to protest but how crazy he is he would have my a** locked up. Slave owners mentality passed down to slaves have forever pitted our own people against us which is sad but it's rooted and will never go away.

  • Lisa daniels

    You know these new blacks don't give a damn about their skin folks and you remind the that they came out of a black ass, they catch a case of amnesia.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    But since when is race a skin shade? What if she is black/Mexican and her skin tone is very dark? My sister and I are mixed with the same shitt. My dad is black and my mom is American Indian from her dad and Spanish from her mom. I look black and my sister looks straight light Spanish. We are both "mixed race". This is why I ask how does he define what he is asking for? By skin tone or nah? Everybody is mixed with something. Skin tone is what socially divides us.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    They remind me of the racist we are the world Michael Jackson fans. To them he isn't black ,he's colorless like jeezzus (?).

  • Lisa daniels

    Jesus was black too and Cleopatra. Some folks are stupid and others like being in denial.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Skin tone is a phenotype, it has nothing to do with race. Intelligent people know this, ignorant folks like to ignore it. The phenotype for dark skin is the most dominant and abundant. Some one that's black and Mexican can still fall under the black umbrella. Depending on what type of Mexican there parent is, Black/indigenous or white Mexican. Kanyes looking for someone that looks "Mixed" a racially ambiguous person. Example Zendaya would get picked over Alicia Keys even though they're both half black & white.

  • KitKat

    This dude is a real dumb ass.

  • Howard Alum ?

    That's what bothers me. It's like, do you secretly hate your mother, aunts, grandmother's and so forth. Why are they so afraid of dark skin?

  • WinnersNeverLose&ViceVersa

  • Lisa daniels

    They hate themselves and their family. They hate dark skin because something dark or black is consider evil, dirty, and all the other adjectives. White is considered to be clean, godlike. Notice when see pictures of Jesus, he is wearing white. The pope he is is wearing white. The depicts of ancient gods and goddesses of "white" descent they are wearing white.

    ??? Sooooo messy? He set himself up for this. Probably purposely. A mess. For all we know the Black models have already been cast.idk whatever...

Lol (I'm being a facetious prick with this comment btw....I know he means no blacks. Man, He's changed from his days at Kenwood Highschool when his mom was alive, when he promised Mr. Rainey he was gon marry his daughter. She's married and moved on.....but he's regressed. Sad.)

    Sir.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    He has no control over his life

  • S T

    Respectfully,
    It's the fact that he's made such a superficial request at all - That's the nerve triggered, esp from a descendent of people marginalized on the very basis in question; then add, he is from (if you're from Chicago, and of his era, u know what I'm talking about) the academic/social/political family line that would critically oppose such a request.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    You can't...hell I'm milk chocolate and my sis is dark chocolate...both of our parents are negras...milk chocolate colored. Grandparents on both sides are dark skin.

    I knew half Black half Mexican twins....non identical...one was light skin the other dark chocolate.

    You just never know what you're gonna get...more so when you mix though.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I agree. I'm pointing out that I don't think he worded what he wants properly. He should have just said no black or pasty white chicks need apply. That's what he is thinking. The wording of the request doesn't exclude dark skin women; we just know Kanye has a type.

  • Dakota H

    Lol you made my day with that comment I wish he could see your comment ???

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    His people will have a closet of Beyonce box colored blonde wigs for them to chose from.

  • Lisa daniels

    Technically kim is a mutt. She is an ethnic white woman. Her pops hailed from the middle east and her mom is a white woman

  • Dakota H

    Yes and plus he ain't happy in his marriage with Kim his a** got caught whispered something to Amber Rose. Makes me think if his mother was alive would he be acting out with all this crazy behavior like he has been doing over the last years.

    Omg, Kappa's did this to me in college.1. I stayed clear of all sororities because it wasn't my thing. I didn't like my own blood sister; didn't need fake ones. but, most important, 2. I was so offended they were walking around with fuckking paper bags??!!!

    Black skin is a reminder of low status, some black men worship lighter skin as a sign of higher status. Kanye is one of those men. I wonder what will happen when North brings home a black boy and turns his bloodline back to black.

    A few weeks ago, he was on the local (L.A.) news and he brought women's hair and the Olympics, clowning by himself. They (white newscasters) were trying to shush him but he kept going Here he is with receding buckshots that have gone back several times talking about women with kinky hair when he wasn't even asked for an opinion. I wanted to upload this to Disqus but by the time the station put it on their site, that part was edited out but toward the end, he tries it again but that segment goes to a commercial.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    Probably not because Wayans Bros and the 1st two Scary Movie franchises has too many gay overtones. The way he went in on the Black female Olympians a few weeks ago proves that he's not funny and has punk tendencies.

    I heard that whole clan (Kim too) have self-hate issues. I would be very interested in finding out what their childhood was like. When you have a whole gang of siblings that don't like themselves, I am interested in what they were taught. Like I have a set of cousins, it's 3 of them, 2 boys and a girl, and they all gay. Like how?

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    My great aunt has a similar situation. 4/5 grandkids the are gay.

  • leapyearpisces

    Wow, and I am not passing judgement on anyone, but when you have a situation like that, I thinks it's normal to think, "what went on in that household", and it may not even been that something happened, but I just find it peculiar.

  • Jay

    After 300 plus years of cruelty you actually start believing what people say about you and your people. Its called brand washing. He wants to be accepted by white People so bad. He thinks it validates him. Dude please they look at you as a buffoon at the highest degree. Since you married kim your career has nose dived. You think she would allow you to be more popular than her ? You don't know the trickery of some people brother. Wake up,

  • leapyearpisces

    Did you see the video that came out a few months ago, where they were all in the limo and he was holding the plate of food for some white designer dude while the guy was eating like his name was Benson? If not, look it up, it was sickening. Vomit inducing.

    Trump bobbing his head to the black church choir and those house niggas clapping for him. I can't on a Sunday morning.

    Mind you I'm not taking away from what house niggas went through back in the day. They were beat and raped. They were forced to raise white kids and have babies by their white masters just for their kids to be thrown out in the fields if not killed upon birth. They were used as one of the first forms of playing blacks against blacks. However, compare to the fields... It was a position some field niggas would tap dance to have which is why we use the word as a stereotype today.

    Some Kanye-optimistic bloggers report that he's actually trying to weed out white women, and they reference the dark women in his previous shows. Regardless, playing the race card is pure bs; I gives no F's how its dealt. Instead of turning away, why not just strongly encourage multi-ethnic women to apply?

    Modeling agencies, casting directors, and black hip hop music video directors have been posting biracial, multiracial, mixed girls only casting calls for years.

    And if they didn't come right out and say it, they would let everyone audition but still would only cast biracial, multiracial, mixed (and ethnic looking white) girls.

    In my opinion, better they are honest and not to waste all the black girls time, travel money, and expensive comp cards.

  • i troll it like i see it

    yes, the day after this mess came out i saw a couple kids wearing it, they were white kids. but this is the demographic he's trying to appeal to so mission accomplished, i guess....

  • the guest

    Never understood light skinned blacks wanting desperately to be mixed.

  • the guest

    Remember Mike Meyer's face? Priceless.

  • Brook York

    I officially lost respect for him when he started dating Amber, I knew it would be a downward spiral from there. Good luck to anyone still checking for Koonye in 2016.

  • the guest

    No, that is not multiracial because all are of the black race.

    Multiracial is white/west indian/native american or white/asian/trinidadian, etc.

    BUT, brown skinned African American looking mixed girls with a biological white parent should go just to make a point. Some mixed people with a white parent look like brown skinned African Americans.

  • the guest

    Ironically, blacks, whites, and american black/white biracials are for some reason very resentful of and socially threatened by multiracial people.

  • the guest

    The thing is, he would let ethnic looking white girls slide but not light skinned black girls.

  • the guest

    Watch.

    They won't permit North, Saint, Mason, Penelope, Reign to date, marry, birth black.

    The only reason this generation Kardashians dated black was to use black cultural capital to get put on and establish wealth.

    Now established in wealth, the next generation will be steered and socialized white.

  • the guest

    People don't realize it is not unusual for casting calls specifically seeking multiracial and racially ambiguous models and actors.

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    True. Just like being told you're too dark one day, and not dark enough the next. Welcome to Hollywood. Casting isn't 'color blind'. It's specific. Weight, height, skin hue...Very specific.

  • the guest

    Upwardly mobile blacks have been assimilating into white culture since the Harlem Renassaince. Remember how many of the black panthers and black power men left their activist days to marry and assimilate white or whiter.

    Kanye West's upwardly mobile assimilation into white culture is not a new phenomenon.

    Exactly. I'm constantly educating people that Louisiana Creoles are not just pale. Yes I know this isn't a race but a culture but it's a perfect example. I have cousins with blond hair and green eyes who are super pale and some with deep chocolate with green eyes and jet black hair. The full spectrum. All from a black mom and a black dad. It kills me that folks think multi- ethnic automatically means lighter skin. Not the case at all.

  • Teresa Uriel

    Thanks to Anoymous on rhymes with snitch for this profound educational tidbit:

    ****************************************************************************************

    let me school yall on how the mind works ( a liitle psychology for your ass):

    A black man who marries and procreates outside of his race HATES his
    people and himself. This is NOT a preference.....I'm gonna speak on that
    word 'preference' in a little bit, so keep reading....

    A black woman ( especially a darker hued one ) wearing a full blown head
    of Blonde Hair HATES herself and her people. This is NOT a 'preference'
    or in her words 'fashion'...

    Coonye's 'preference' and nene leake's 'fashion-preference' is a THOUGHT/MENTALITY PLACED & PLANTED
    IN THEIR BLACK GULLIBLE MINDS BY WHITE SOCIETY.....in short-their
    so-called preference is NOT their own mind, it is the mind-set given to
    them (and some of you on this blog ) through the following tools:

    1. Media
    2. Magazines
    3. Years of Oppression
    4. willie lynnch practices
    5. ..and Money

    black men are supposed to be doing KING SHIIT, which requires BUILDING YOUR OWN PEOPLE...your own race...procreating with the BLACK WOMAN....not with chinese women, or arab women, or white women, but with the same type of woman that gave birth to your black asss!....a woman that is black like your black mother....THIS IS WHAT KINGS DO!!

    black women....IF YOUR ASS WASN'T BORN WITH BLONDE HAIR, TAKE THAT SHIIT OFF YOUR HEAD!!! LIKE NOW!!!
    It is SELF_HATRED because you DEFY God and are blatantly telling God that you HATE what He gave you...which is WOOLY HAIR!!!

    This is NOT a fashion statement or preference or whatever you wanna call it, it is a thought planted in your mind by white society!

    Get your Minds in Order!

    As far as you 'mixed' people go, white people create you with black people for the purposes of 'watering-down' the black race...I know it's harsh but it is the UGLY TRUTH.....and this ugly truth is nothing ( and I mean nothing!) compared to what white society did and continue to do for
    400+ yrs. All I can tell yah, is yall better start procreating the black
    Back into the black race.

    If your father is black and mother non-black, you better make sure your children (both male and female) procreate with a black woman.

    If your father is white and mother black is black, you better make sure your female children procreate with a black man. And if you-yourself are female, you better procreate with a black man.

    I say this because, those of you or your kids who have white fathers, will not be saved. It is what it is.

    The reality is Kanye is not designing or marketing to black people. Jay Z Barney's line wasn't designed and marketed for black people either. They are not even making their lines for wealthy black people and black celebrities.

    They are designing and marketing "black cultural sensibility" to wealthy white people and white celebrities. Kanye is not at all concerned with black opinion, criticism, or sales.

    Throughout history famed black artists and writers have either become expats or disassociated with and remained connected with black people only in theory and word. It's not always self hate, it is sometimes self protective because the hard truth is the black community is not kind, fair, or supportive to all black artists.

    Some black artists ride or die for the black community. Some black artists find other communities, audiences, support and sales bases.

    "It's not always self hate, it is sometimes self protectiveness because the hard truth is the black community is not kind, fair, or supportive to some black artists.", especially when they step outside the box and do something different than what's "expected" of them.

    We impose superficial limits on our artists..."he or she should stick to acting, singing, etc. " as if a person shouldn't even attempt other creative endeavors then we turn around and tell our kids they can do and be whatever they want to in life. Hyper critical and contradictory like a muhfukka. ???

  • jussaying

    this is dumb nonsense. and just as dangerous as every ignorant black person that actually hates themselves and feeds into the notion that bigots perpetuate. this person has low self esteem, and feels inferior as well because those who have a high opinion of themselves and are secure with whom they are can give two shits and a fart in the wind about what they think "white people" deem acceptable. speaking for myself, I've had super bright blond hair that was straight (as my hair texture is fine and straightens pin straight w/o a relaxer), and I've had braids, black hair, dark brown hair, auburn hair, faux locs, and I wear my hair in its natural state: curly. sometimes, I even purposely kink it for a fro look if the wind tickles me enough to do so. every damn time, I was just as black as before. not every person that chooses to change their hair color or contact lenses etc hates themselves, but I'm sure that every person who has to preach about other black peoples choices in their fashion and accessories, how they articulate themselves - the people whom they choose to marry or date or procreate with, surely feels "less" otherwise they wouldn't take the actions of others as a personal affront to their race and get so defensive.

  • jussaying

    and for the fifty-leventh time, there are black people with bright blond hair and blue eyes and dark skin. there are black people with red hair wtc. the African diaspora is diverse and rich. and anyone who tries to box you in to what white people have told you is a "typical" African American is just as dumb, ignorant, and azz backward as the bigots for whom they are rallying against.

  • La Dominicana Negra

    Things become murky around her great-grandparents as no one knows who her great-grandfather screwed. There's proof he was with a non-Macedonian woman; most likely African. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I remember reading an article some time ago about a team finding her sister's remains and concluded that the mother was of African descent. Which makes sense to me because her father slept with several women as well, and it was not uncommon for elite Egyptians to marry people from the Ptolemaic dynasty at that time. And she was the ONLY one to speak both Greek and Egyptian, so someone Egyptian was obviously VERY close to her, perhaps her mother? I have a hard time believing she was more likely white skinned than brown.
