Slaves Chose to be Slaves: Kanye Gets Schooled on the Consequences of His Words



by G. Brown

In an interview with TMZ, Kanye defended and doubled down on  his “I love Trump” rant saying, “I just love Trump. That’s my boy.”  Kanye went on to say Trump is one of rap’s favorite people and implied that Snoop and other rappers always wanted to emulate Trump or reference him in their rhymes before he became President, but now they are distancing themselves from him.

Kanye then veered off to say that people try to minimize him as just an “artist, hip hop, Black community”, but he says his impact is greater than that saying “I represent the world.”

From there Kanye, took on history. Kanye says, “Slavery for 400 years.  400 years?! That sounds like a choice.”

It was at this point that a brother in the TMZ newsroom had enough of Kanye’s craziness and spoke up.  Van Latham told Kanye, he’s not “free thinking“, but speaking from the “absence of thought“.

Latham said, “Kanye, you’re entitled to your opinions, you’re entitled to believe whatever you want.  But there is fact and real world consequences behind everything you just said.

Kanye speaks up and says these things and go back to his sheltered,rich celebrity life, but people in the real world have to deal with the consequences of the stuff he says.  Latham says, “We have to deal with the marginalization that come from the 400 years of  slavery that you said for our people was a choice.”  Latham concluded by telling Kanye, “Frankly, I’m disappointed, I’m appalled and brother, I’m unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something …that’s not real.”

Finally, someone stood to Kanye’s face and called him out on all his free thinking non-sense.  Others have tried…singer John Legend, radio host Charlamagne Tha God both tried to school Kanye when he posted a message that said Republicans freed the slaves.  It’s the same nonsense that Trump put out during Black history month.  Most of us learned that in grade school.  But we also learned that yes, Republican Abe Lincoln freed the slaves.  Not because he wanted to, but only as a military strategy to end the Civil War.  Lincoln didn’t think Blacks should have the same rights as Whites.  So let’s not romanticize Republicans freed the slaves…they’re also the ones who had a hand in enslaving Blacks.

Kanye resembles the King in the children’s fable “The Emperor Has No Clothes”…his ego and pride have gotten so out of control that he can’t recognize truth when he hears it.  He believes he’s smarter than most people.  Sounds like another narcissistic New Yorker we all know.

All these rants are keeping Kanye in the spotlight and the headlines.  Another video that’s gone viral is by a man claiming to be a gang member who put out an alert to fellow members to beat down Kanye if they see him.  He’s become the butt of  online jokes and memes. Some on the internet are now calling Kanye “Koon-ye”  and have written him off as an Uncle Tom.  Like the brother said…”Kanye, there are consequences to your words.”

Here’s that TMZ video…watch the full exchange and tell us what you think.  Is Kanye a free thinker who’s on a higher level?  Or is he just a sell out who thinks money puts him in a league beyond race?

    Kanye said, “Slavery for 400 years. 400 years? That sounds like a choice.” Tiger Woods said, “I’m cablacanasian.” OJ Simpson said, “I’m not black, I’m OJ.”

    What do Kanye West, Tiger Woods and OJ have in common? They screwed around with white chicks. The devil’s daughter is poison! Look what white chicks did to Kanye, Tiger Woods and OJ. The devil’s daughter has a mission; destroy black men. Concerning Kanye West, Tiger Woods and OJ, mission accomplished!

    No comment; except that Kanye is entitled to his opinion, whether everone or anyone agrees with him or not

    Kanye West said, “Slavery for 400 years. 400 years? That sounds like a choice.” Most black people are extremely angry, including me. Why didn’t black people get upset when Steve Harvey said, “I don’t give a damn about slavery.” Why are black people outraged at Kanye West’s hurtful statement about black people but content and forgiving about Steve Harvey’s hurtful statement? In my opinion, both Kanye West and Steve Harvey ignorant, self hating coons.

    Koonye has not been the same since his mother died. She knew he had a problem and kept his crazy a*** in check. Stop buying his CD’s and merchandise and see if he changes his tune.

    Thank thank you thank you, for the real truth: I posted to Kanye, that no Black person no-where has enough money for some white people to ever consider a Black person equal to them. No not after they feel & think you’ve been bought & sold like cattle then bred like cattle & women raped at will also beaten like an animal, & please don’t forget the chains, oh yes those real lovely chains. by the [#mastaa],

    I’m glad he was called out. I totally agree. He’s entitled to his opinion but when you disrespect the atrocity of history within your own race some one has to wake him up.

    Mr. Koonyey has been seeking attention for quite some time: went to Zukerburg for a loan, so he said, and was turned down; expressed desire to run for president; tried to step to JayZ; attempting to please his woman and her family by rubbing elbows to associate with the trumps; slavery is a choice – dude you eff’d yourself. African Americans should remove themselves from all your social media sites, stop buying your clothes, records and let your ass depend on the money from the kardashian clan. Please – your Black Card is REVOKED – FOR EVER! FOH
