                  As a black man I do actually understand what Kanye was saying. Being in a forced slavery position isn’t a choice. But to continue the same non-progressive mentality, now that’s a choice. What he said may not be 100% correct but he’s not crazy for excercising free speech. And as Dave Chapelle said the worst thing you could call someone is crazy cause it’s dismissive. The media creates a drug plastered image of people and calls them addicts before the doctors of Hollywood put them on drugs in the first place. Kanye ain’t crazy, not always right, but he ain’t crazy especially for exercising free speech

                            what about the Black Africans are the choice to provide slaves to the world it wasn't White Americans sailing over to catch slaves it was the Black Africans that hunted each other and sold them to slavery the Americans didn't even have slave ships it was the Portuguese that had the slave ships

                                  Slavery is rape....need I go on? I guess so. Kanye stated anyone who has or is raped that's what the decided to be when God woke them up in the morning. Sounds cliche?!?! Good. That means stop wasting your time and really comprehend what's being typed. Thank you.

                                      Kanye West is getting free publicity so when his music drops, fools will buy it. I guess it's time for Kim to get naked on Instagram, she has a new makeup line coming out. They love controversy.

                                          Question for anyone who would like to answer. If you show up to a job that you hate everyday, would that be considered a choice? Please think before answering. And don't try telling me about the perceived consequences of you leaving. Just answer yes or no. Depending on your answer you will understand Kanye's statement a little bit better.

                                            The point is slavery is over. Has been for years. Be a victor or a victim. That’s your choices now. Your life is what you make it.
                                            WE THE PEOPLE are not white nor black or any color at all. WE THE PEOPLE ARE AMERICANS!!!

                                                    Media be twisting his poorly worded rant. The act of harping on slavery as an excuse for not moving forward is what he was _trying_ to point out. Media wants to make it like the slaves had a choice to be slaves. That's what 'slave' means -- you have no choice. Of-course that's not what he meant.
