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.

    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.

    Kanye said slavery was a choice... Maybe he meant that the ancestors could have easily overthrow the power and overcome slavery.. He probably put it in the wrong way...

    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.
      We need to leave the past history in the past and stop choosing to live a certain way because you are a certain colour.

    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.

    hmmmm Death.. or slavery?... i see the choices. Some would say that death is not a choice.. but then maybe.. ppl would say that slavery is not a choice. 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.

    Lol meek Mill is irrelevant. His music sucks and he doesn't seem like a good person either. Also Ashley Judd is a brilliant actress. I love her movies and so do many others. 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.

    Transatlantic Slave trade initially was a choice though. The only way whites could go into Africa and get Africans to slave they had to form alliances with the Africans. So the whites gave the Africans guns, in return they would capture their own people and hand them over to the whites, hence the whites took our ancestors and slaved us. However, in the Caribbean the whites came in Xaymaca (Jamaica) specifically and basically tricked and manipulated the Tainos that they were ‘God’ and because the Tainos were spiritual people, they started worshipping the whites and do what they were instructed to do, hence they started slaving, killing and raping these native people.
