Kanye sparks new outrage in calling slavery 'choice'

Kanye sparks new outrage in calling slavery 'choice'

Over the past few weeks, rapper Kanye West has openly expressed his support for President Donald Trump after saying he likes the way conservative commentator Candace Owens thinks.

Mr West sparked fresh outrage on Monday when he appeared on TMZ and claimed slavery over the centuries sounded "like a choice".

He further explains how Kanye is participating in this logic that is blaming Black people for being oppressed, and people know that he's acting out. "My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved". Symone D. Sanders, political commentator and CNN contributor, led the anti-West chorus on Twitter.

He back-pedalled feverishly as stars including Will.i.am mauled the rapper for his controversial comments. We can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years.

Kanye West is allegedly seeking a restraining order against rapper and record producer Daz Dillinger.

West later clarified his comments on Twitter, saying the statement was "an example of free thought". "The only thing I can think of when he said that "slavery was a choice".[is that it's] choice of white people". Although his logic was faulty and uniformed, Kanye presented himself as an earnest, well-intentioned free-thinker whose core beliefs are rooted in idealism as opposed to batshit rightwing conspiracy theories. I said that you need to apologize to the black community. And the reason why I feel like that is because, Kanye, you're entitled to your opinion.

It adds: "Tell the world [Adidas does] not want anything to do with anyone who believes that millions of Africans chose to toil the fields in bondage".

In the video Lathan rebuts, "The rest of us in society have to deal with these threats in our lives". Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled and, brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, that to me, is not real. Prison unites us as one race... Responding to a tweet from NY radio host Angie Martinez, Lathan wrote: "Thanks for the repost Icon".
