Earlier today, Kanye West took to Twitter to discuss his feelings over the word b**ch, and how it relates to the word n***a. As he has been known to do, 'Ye went on a rant that was both entertaining and thought provoking. Peep the tweets below, which ended with a link to fellow Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco's latest video "B**ch Bad."

I usually never tweet questions butI struggle with this so here goes...Is the word BITCH acceptable?

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

To be more specific, is it acceptable for a man to call a woman a bitch even if it's endearing?

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

Even typing it in question form it's still feels harsh?

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

Has hip hop conditioned us to accept this word?Do we love this word as much as we love the word NIGGA in an endearing way?

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

correction,Here's the age old question,would we refer to our mothers as bitches? Would' we call our fathers niggers or better yet NIGGAS?

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

If nigga is such a positive word, why do we feel so uncomfortable for white people to say it, even with a hall pass?

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

Is it ok to use bitch as long as we put BAD in front of it?Likeyou a BAD BITCH

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

Perhaps the words BITCH and NIGGA are now neither positive or negative. They are just potent and it depends on how the are used and by whom?

What if there was no profanity... What if we decided to legalise profanity in a sense? In France they play songs with cursing on the radio

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

please excuse any and all of my grammatical errors

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

I was recently questioned about the use of the word BITCH in my music and initiallywas offended by anyone questioning anything in my music

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

Stevie Wonder never had to use the word bitch to get his point across

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

I will admit that I sometimes go back an omit cursing from my records.I like to use profanity as a tool and not a crutch.

— Kanye West (@kanyewest) September 2, 2012

I'm not tweeting to say what we need and what we don't... I just wanted to think out loud with you guys today...
