The actual words he used was that 400 years of slavery was a choice, of course it started a firestorm every where. then he went on twitter to elaborate what he meant.
In his explanation, he said we are programmed to always talk and fight race issues. we need to update our conversation.
According to Kanye, In school we need to learn how magic Johnson built his business not always talk about the past. Matter fact I’ve never even heard of a high school class that presents future ideas . Who agrees with Kanye? (me)
Tuesday was a story of two interviews and two Kanye(s )
At the first interview below, Radio host Charlamagne interviewed him in at his family home:
He was cool calm and collected. He opened up about his mental health, his family, and his art in a nearly- two hour interview with radio host Charlamagne.
He also spoke candidly about a couple of issues including a 20 million loan he got from Jay z and the misunderstanding surrounding it. he was really unhappy Jay z did not come for his wedding, he said he was really hurt
The second interview Kanye went off key again: he worked straight into the lion’s den:
He went to TMZ headquarters and started ranting. TMZ is like the Nigerian equivalent of Linda Ikeji a gossip center (I mean she would tell on you if you go to her office and start any type of drama)
He had this to say: “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.”
The rapper went on to add:”You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all. It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”
An employee of TMZ Van Lathan confronted him
“While you are making music and being an artist and living the life that you’ve earned by being a genius, the rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives,” Lathan said. “We have to deal with the marginalization that’s come from the 400 years of slavery that you said for our people was a choice.”
Lathan added, “Frankly, I’m disappointed, I’m appalled, and brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something to me, that’s not real.”
In addition to this all these interviews, In the past few weeks he made a lot of statements black people found provocative including proclaiming his love for Trump and dissing Obama
Maybe he has some good points to make, but he has such poor delivery. Where is Kim Kardashian, you need to come get your man; who does his PR management again?
