And when you get on he leave your ass for a white girl

from Kanye West (Ft. Jamie Foxx) – Gold Digger Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The counterpoint to the gold digging woman’s desire for a rich husband is the rich man’s desire for a trophy wife. It’s quite a little symbiotic relationship that squeezes the life out of honest relationships

No one can trust their partner to stick with them just because they are in love. Everyone wants to be ballin'. Kanye illustrates this perfectly in “Touch the Sky”.

This also touches on the stereotype that after a black man has reached a certain level of success, he will leave a relationship with a good black woman to enter into a relationship with a white woman. Many criticize this behavior as something that reveals deep-seeded self-hatred and a misplaced belief in white superiority.
