You getting blackmailed for that white girl
- “You getting blackmailed for that white, girl"
The most literal interpretation that fits the storyline of the song: her brother’s got dirt on her, and it’s all the coke she’s been snorting.
- “You getting black-maled for that white, girl"
A more political interpretation that brings up the troubling relationship between inner-city blacks and crack cocaine.
- “You getting blackmailed for that white girl"
This interpretation turns things on Kanye (or the narrator). If the song is about a romantic relationship of Kanye’s, it could be about that relationship being held against him. Kanye took a lot of ridicule for his fling with biracial (white?) socialite Amber Rose.
- “You getting black-maled for that white girl"
If the song is taken as a metaphor for his relationship with fame, this line is a reference to the media reaction to the infamous Taylor Swift / VMA incident. A lot of racially insensitive things were said about Kanye in reaction to his (admittedly ridiculous) actions, which served to make the whole situation uglier. He’s being "black-maled” (put in his place as a black man) for what he did to a white girl (Swift)
Also, of course, black is the opposite of white and male is the opposite of girl.
