Although the special filmed last month, tonight aired the B.E.T. Honors: What Extraordinary Looks Like program where Kanye West accepted the Visionary Award. The award was presented to Kanye from Dame Dash (founder of Roc-A-Fella Records), the man who introduced Kanye to the world. The highlights of Kanye’s speech included a hilarious jab at Kim Kardashian’s former boyfriends and a heartfelt story on race, shared to Kanye by Kim, about her late father, Robert Kardashian. Before he passed (as told by Kanye) Robert Kardashian’s car was vandalized with the slur “n*gger lover”, because of his legal defense of OJ Simpson. Soon after, Robert Kardashian tried to chase down the men who vandalized his Bentley. When a young Kim was uncertain why her father was so upset, since he was normally calm and mellow, Robert told his daughter, “one day you may have a black child… and it will be hard.” A powerful story that foreshadowed the harassment that Kim and many others still experience many years later.
