His job try to claim that he too niggerish now
Is it cause his skin blacker than licorice now
I can't figure it out, I'm sick of it now

The imagery implies not only darkness of skin, but a general lack of intelligence and sophistication. Kanye describes society as racist, claiming his cousin is unintelligent and uncouth, based purely on his skin colour.
