Kanye West rebuked for saying slavery 'a choice'

03 May 2018

And now after his ongoing "free thought" stint on Twitter, Kanye went one up when he appeared on a show on TMZ Live.

Gillum and Thompson shared their frustration over West's comments Wednesday.

West then turned to the TMZ newsroom to pose a question. That sounds like a choice. "You was there for 400 years, and it's all of y'all?" Prison unites us as one race...

But that wasn't before the rest of Twitter had something to say about West's words.

Apple Bullish on Indian Market With $61.1bn in Revenue
While there has not yet been a tariff on devices such as Apple's iPhone , Cook last week traveled to Washington to meet with U.S. The company's iPhone unit sales came in at 52.2 million, below the 52.54 million that analysts polled by StreetAccount estimate.

When Kanye asked the office at large if they thought he was "thinking free" Van Lathan stood up and eloquently articulated to Kanye's face, with as much respect as possible, just how hurtful and ill-informed his comments have been. I think what you are doing right now is an afterthought...

My ancestors wouldn't believe that, and I'm sure that Kanye's wouldn't either.

After validating West's right to offer up an opinion, Lathan noted that there are "real-world, real-life effect behind everything that you just said".

The academic said it is also incorrect to assume that slaves were "mentally enslaved" - many of them took on acts of resistance as well and engaging in revolts against slave owners, such as Nat Turner's slave rebellion in Virginia in 1831.

Ovechkin scores late, Caps lead Pens 2-1
It is no longer about Pittsburgh's quest for a three-peat, or the Capitals' quest to break through the second-round glass ceiling. Through 89 regular season matches , 50 of its games have gone over the total, while 37 have gone under and just two have pushed.

The rapper known as Tip reached out to West over his controversial string of tweets supporting U.S. President Donald Trump. For his more liberal fans and followers, it's been a disappointing turn.

"To make myself clear".

He also tweeted, "I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves", a quote often attributed to Harriet Tubman, an escaped slave who led others to freedom on the Underground Railroad. "You know it's like we're mentally in prison", West explained to TMZ host and creator Harvey Levin. He's always going to say exactly how he feels.

And my grandmother's grandma, who was a slave. "We can have a discussion about mental slavery. Meeting him and seeing him in here today, obviously there's some sort of narrative or ministry that he's trying to push, but it's frustrating to see how in the world he fell so far in terms of relatability from where we are". "What are you talking about?"

Sharing Spotify Content on Instagram Just Became a Whole Lot Easier
For now, Instagram is supporting Spotify and GoPro, but the company has said that more apps will support this feature soon . All the features announced is a welcomed feature that will definitely keep users to be more engaged when using the app.

Still, the TMZ producer doesn't think the recent controversies will hurt West's career. From saying on national TV that "George Bush doesn't care about black people" during Hurricane Katrina to jumping on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to interrupt Taylor Swift's acceptance speech, the rapper has a history of outlandish public comment.
