So goodnight, cruel world, I’ll see you in the morning
Note Kanye’s series of light –> dark progressions, which he finds unfair:
Light-skinned vs. “Kelly Rowland” (swarthy) girls
White men vs. Him (Kanye… Black)
Night vs. Day
Also note here the phrase “goodbye, cruel world” has been modified to “goodnight.” Instead of contemplating suicide over the trials of the “white man world,” Yay shrugs it off and goes to sleep for the evening.
