Kanye West in hot water after claiming slavery was a "choice"

Irene MckinneyMay 03, 2018

In response, Twitter users promptly went after him. The views expressed here are exclusively his. "His thoughts are moving faster than his mouth, and he is embarrassing a lot of people, especially hip-hop". Levin admitted he has not slept since people's takeaway from the conversation is that Kanye thinks slavery was a choice. "For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice". "That sounds like a choice", he said.

And then Kanye quickly made it about Kanye: "T$3 he reason why I brought up the 400 years point is because we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years".

Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am expressed "hurt" over Kanye's words admitting that "wanted to cry" when he saw his last tweets. Slavery is to blacks as the Holocaust is to Jews.

"Black people have a tendency to focus and march when a white person kills a black person or wears a hat but when it's 700 kids being killed in Chicago it's okay". We are programmed to always talk and fight race issues. But this is where the cult of celebrity has gotten us.

An official from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department tells The Blast deputies reached out to Kanye and his security team after Daz put out a green light for members of the Crip street gang to attack Yeezy on sight.

He continued by saying that West had not thought about how his stance on Trump, who has been openly racist and misogynist since he began his presidential campaign, might affect his fans. He said West didn't have an answer to that and told him it's something he needs to figure out.

He added, "I got liposuction".

Despite Kanye's brash approach, I understood the context of his criticism of Taylor Swift's beating out Beyonce during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. "And I hope it's not to raise awareness so you can sell a record and some shoes because that would be the worst thing to do - to stir up this very touchy race situation and you be the benefactor from it".

The Atlanta rapper also said that West is very serious about running for president one day. His messaging is scattered - a combination of historical fiction mixed with personal self-exploration and possible publicity-seeking.

Musician Kanye West is now synonymous with controversy. In 2018, it's backwards that America would even be engaging in debates about the undeniable facts surrounding slavery.

"I was on opioids", Kanye explained. Gay's tweet was liked more than 50,000 times. We are following other people's opinion.

At this point, some folks would be happy with the Kanye from just a few weeks ago.
