Kanye West played the 'some of my best friends are black' card in his civil lawsuit over the LAX paparazzi attack -- revealing that his dad was once a celebrity photog.

During deposition for the suit filed by Daniel Ramos ... Kanye told Ramos' attorney, "My father was a paparazzo himself." He added that his parents didn't raise him to "be out here wrestling with random paparazzi in front of LAX."

Kanye said he respects some of the paparazzi and gets along with them from time to time, but accused Ramos of asking him about "dumb s**t."

West went on to list a bunch of other jobs his dad did -- marriage counselor, medical illustrator and Black Panther. Maybe explaining why .... as we first told you ... he also declared himself, "the smartest celebrity you've ever f***king dealt with" during the deposition.
