Like father like son

Through all of this, Kanye shares that his dad really likes the shirt too, and thought it was rather funny seeing his son wear it.

“You know, my dad is an educated ex-Black Panther, and he put in a text to me today, he said, ‘White Lives Matter. Ha ha ha ha ha,’ ” he says. “And I said, ‘I thought the shirt was a funny shirt. I thought the idea of me wearing it was funny.’ And I said, ‘Dad, why do you think it was funny?’ He said, ‘Just a Black man stating the obvious.’ ”

Kanye goes on to explain that that was his favorite response to the new shirts.

Of course, to wrap things up Kanye explains the simplest reason for creating the White Lives Matter clothing – he says it was the obvious thing to do.

“So the answer to why I wrote White Lives Matter on a shirt is because they do. It’s the obvious thing.”

Not the first time he’s talked about it

This isn’t the first time he has brought up these new shirts. In fact, he just posted them on his Instagram too along with some text conversations about the shirts. Apparently, he plans to donate proceeds from the White Lives Matter shirts and give them to Black Lives Matter in support.
