It's been quite some time since we've had a good quotable Kanye West moment, but thankfully he's delivered in spades today. Back last year he was charged with battery and grand theft after attacking a paparazzo and smashing his camera, a crime for which he was sentenced to probation and anger management classes. Today, TMZ was able to obtain a copy of Ye's deposition from the case, and it's honestly incredible.

Not only did he refer to the photographer as 'scum', he also called out photographer Nate Goldberg for his use of the n-word while quoting lyrics from his song 'Flashing Lights' - “You have to ask for a hall pass. You can’t just say the ’n’ word around me,” he stated, adding “I’m the smartest celebrity you’ve ever fucking dealt with. I’m not Britney Spears.” He also compared celebrities' fights with the paparazzi to that of the Civil Rights movement of the 60's:

Kanye says there’s a parallel between blacks fighting for civil rights in the ’60s and celebs fighting for theirs today: “I mean in the ’60s people used to hold up ’Die Nigger’ signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also.” Goldberg asks if he equates the struggle of blacks in the past with celebrities today and Kanye says, “Yes, 100 … I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities.”

Kanye goes on, “We, as group of minorities here in L.A., as celebrities have to ban together to influence guys like this — guys trying to take the picture, guys trying to get the big win, guys trying to get the check.”

While yes, Kanye and other celebrities are in a pretty crazy position where every single thing they do all the time always is being watched, but I think he may have gone a little bit too far with that comparison, don't you?

In the depo … Kanye sarcastically asks the photog’s lawyer, “Is your daughter stalked by like drones? Are there drones flying where she’s trying to learn how to swim at age 1?”

Kanye goes on … “Wouldn’t you like to just teach your daughter how to swim without a drone flying? What happens if a drone falls right next to her? Would it electrocute her?”

As for how that could happen, Kanye says, “Could it fall and hit her if that paparazzi doesn’t understand how to remote control the drone over their house?”
