Kanye West: "Slavery Was a Choice"

  • Published on May 3, 2018
  • Kanye West went on another rant, this time on TV for nearly an hour. He said 400 years of slavery was a choice for black people, and the backlash was swift.
    Then, Ashley Judd is suing Harvey Weinstein for ruining her career and Nas reportedly owes the government over $300K in back taxes.
    Plus, Lisa Vanderpump was called out for her shady behavior towards Dorit in part 2 of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" reunion.

    400 years of slavery means, to him, that black people had opportunity of time, motive, reason & environmental education for way more than a generation. But History simply dictates the inevitable truth that slavery was a choice, a life chosen by found-comfort. Like every Civilization, slavery is a tool to build a better tomorrow. Europeans came to America with the plan to build New-England, but they had endless blood shed, dealing with the Amerindians. After a few decades they had to find more men, they had already dealt with Africa referring them as savages. Due to unclear evidence of altercations that Africans felt towards seeing a white race for the first time, conflict was built. Word got out that the African race were characterized as animals or of close but different species. They planned to find a way to have a better relation and soon ship them to Europe and then to America. Black people didn’t start as slaves. When sent to Europe, after rehabilitation and a few decades, they fought all types of wars, their are records of black soldiers becoming captains of such. Slavery came when England and France needed to send their 100 associates/ private companies. Black people would be used as help(rocking boats, dealing with the ‘savages’(Amerindians). America was the most important piece in human History, and everybody knew of how hard they’d have to struggle with the cold, savages & having to build a society someway fast, so future generations don’t struggle as much. Everyone who was sent to America was sent by push White-Europeans, African-Europeans. And no, slavery didn’t happen like in Django. Slavery in Europe, at the time, was viewed as: a second-class citizen who’s lost or unguided, will be given held by a master. He’ll be given commands for the exchange of essentials at ease. Slaves always had opportunity to build their own America, but Europeans were the one of very few with an educational system. Most African-Europeans are of little education, since they were under second class. White people in general were well educated, thanks to greek knowledge, learned of how unpure blood can turn on a civilization. Those who are not of a higher cannot have freedom out of fear for rebellion, classing some as slaves for control against potential rebellion. Slavery was a necessary class for those most scared of. Racism developed out of fear being taken over.

    I do believe Ashley Judd had puffy cheeks from prescribed steriods to help her overcome an infection. I say this because she might be keeping quiet about an immune disease, like lupus, which means that she is suffering and really cant help this side effect. I believe the same is true for Selena Gomez, who tends to get the "moon face" side effect after leaving treatment. I think people should be a little more sensitive on the subject becauseit must be hurtful to those that go through it.

    Kayne west says, sounds like a choice its always to good to speculate. I bet kayne agrees with me that slavery is stil going on and we should focus on modern days. I don't mean by normal jobs but in criminal circle. Remember how he says mental imprisoned if you thinking to do something iligaal or legal and it seems to good to be true think twice that's my only advice.

    I don’t think it’s sexy for women to get lipo either. Just like a lot of men don’t like massive balloons on a women’s chest they like it soft and natural not hard bricks. I don’t see an issue with men getting lipo. What’s the difference? The sex doesn’t chg it they’re still sucking your lard through a tube.

    We've always modeled our chains really well, from thick herringbones, and gold crucifixes of porcelain skin deities draping the necks of our comfortable and wealthy, to the bulkly bland links that bound the necks and ankles of our aesthetically superior ancestors who bodies had not been exposed to GMO foods, nearly dead water, nor trauma for working long hours in the sun. Melanin is and has always been a prized and marketable entity. Unfortunately
    with out the "white face" approval, many of our own people want approve of us, in this reality, until we've earned the "White Face approval!" And this is often measured by how my "white faces" did your clothes cost, how many "white faces" are in your account, how many "white faces" you earn annually? how many "white faces" did your car and house cost? How many "white faces" was your education? How many "white faces" were your hair and shoes?
    If you ask me in a lot of cases it is we who are selling Slavery to ourselves. A system might work but it can not thrive if the people don't buy into it !

    You all misunderstood him. He is saying people have not lived in slavery for a very long time but yet still live with the racist feelings in their heart towards white people for it.
    Just like some people still have racist, out of date thoughts about black people.
    It is a choice! Move forward with history you can't change it. Stop living in it.
    I hate Kanya but I get what he meant. You all are blind to just being offended over everything or over dramtizing it for the fun of it.

      He meant slavery has been a choice for a very long time but people still be living with racism in their heart towards white people for it. Just like some white people still hold out dated thoughts about black people.
      These things are a choice.

    How can you sit on that stage and claim to be a feminist? You want women to be treated equal to men but don’t want men to be equal to women?? It’s ok for Wendy Williams to fat shame Kanye and say men shouldn’t be able to get plastic or lipo when you’ve had both! It’s appalling. I’m not a Kanye fan but I’ll defend him on his decision for lipo. Men want to look good and feel confident too. But you’re a feminist so you think only women can do it. A TRUE feminist treats all equally and show empathy for both sides. They exhibit humility e.g. Judge Judy. They are for true equality not putting women on a higher pedestal. You’ll never get a view from me again!! 🤔

    Wendy is - once again - such an idiot. She goes on and on about Kanye gaining weight. That's body-shaming, my dear, and if she talked like that about some female celebrity, the internet would be on fire. Then she says men shouldn't get plastic surgery. Oh sure, Wendy, and women shouldn't have short hair. Her sexistic, small-minded views on life are disgusting.

In the end.. who would choose either of these? No one. But then again..i am a slave to love and i would die for love. Kanye need some new friends. Friends who are real. Friends with the background, mentality and style he wants to share or represent. Get up man. God is good.

I like watching her movies because she just is awesome especially in drama. Also she should keep the money. It would've been hers anyways and no one can judge her for that. But of course some jealous hateful people would judge her for taking money that should've been rightfully hers through the roles.
