This spring it will already have been three years since international rap star Kanye West, 37, and international reality star Kim Kardashian, 34, first began their relationship.

Although they have since had a child and gotten married, many still doubt the relationship but West made sure to slam those critics during a taping for his award acceptance at the 2015 BET Honors.

West is being recognized with the Visionary Award and like every husband, made sure to mention his spouse. Instead of thanking her, however, he defended her and their relationship.

“At the barbershop…I used to hear people always talking about, ‘Man you know when an entertainer get on, of course you know he gon’ go and get a white girl and blah blah blah and a white girl gon’ get a rich black dude.’ But I wanna say that my wife has dated broke black dudes. It got nothing to do with the money.”

He also mentioned in his speech that Kim’s late father Robert Kardashian warned her about the trials of possibly have a black child one day, “He said to her, ‘One day, you may have a black child…a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful black child… and it’s gonna be hard. You’re gonna see how hard it is.'”

“So true enough,” Kanye continued. “We deal with racism because there are different races. Or the micro of it is that we focus on the different races as opposed to the macro, which is the human race.”

While the event took place on Saturday (Jan. 24) fans have to wait until February 23 for the entire broadcast and West’s entire acceptance speech.
