Kanye West roasted his wife Kim Kardashian for her legendary love of the black man … and brought the house down at the BET Honors.


Kanye was accepting the Visionary Award at the ceremony — which was pre-taped, but aired Monday night — and talked about how guys in Chicago barbershops talk about black men in entertainment hooking up with white women … and white women nabbing rich black guys.

You gotta watch for the punch line because he absolutely nails Kim … and then concludes, “It ain’t got nothing to do with the money.”

Ye also recalls a story Kim told him … about her dad, Robert Kardashian, losing it when someone spray painted “ni**er lover” on his car — and how he used it to teach Kim a lesson about racism.
