But let some black people walk in
I bet you they show off their token blackie
Oh now they love Kanye, let's put him all in the front of the store
Kanye has stated that he was used as a greeter at The Gap. Kanye claims that they stuck him in the front so that other black customers (and white liberals) would come by, see a black guy working there and think “Wow! What a progressive store!”; they were more concerned with their image than Kanye’s wellbeing.
