Now Kanye West Thinks Slavery Was a Choice

Kanye West likes Donald Trump, which doesn’t really surprise me. Kanye West basically is Donald Trump, just without the weird comb-over and with some actual talent. Kanye West is especially the part of Donald Trump that is an uninformed moron who just believes the last thing anyone tells him and lacks the ability to think critically for himself. And unfortunately for Kanye, the person telling him things now is Candice Owens.

Kanye stopped by TMZ for an interview and he was in rare form, no doubt parroting the ignorant things Owens, who does know better but is rich and doesn’t give a s**t. Seriously, South Park did a whole season based loosely on her “dox everyone to stop doxxing” website idea that never came to be.

I think Kanye likes the fact that him liking Republicans makes him mad, he thinks he’s part of the counter-culture by agreeing with old rich white dudes.

Also, when Kanye says “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years? That sound like a choice. Like … you was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all?” he sounds like he just learned this fact today. It reminds me of Aziz Ansari’s story of watching 50 Cent ordering a grapefruit soda.

Kanye followed up his appearance by tweeting a fake Harriet Tubman quote, which he later deleted once it was pointed out that the quote wasn’t real. So good on you for that, at least, Kanye.

Slaves knew they were slaves, Kanye, it was a pretty shitty life, overall.

Thank you TMZ employee Van Lathan. Van explains to Kanye that, essentially, black people still have to deal with some fucked up s**t because of racism. Kanye responds to him by talking about black on black violence, which is a pretty big talking point for racists and Candice Owens when they want to distract from racism.

I’ve really got Kanye’s number now, though. I still love him for going up and saying George Bush doesn’t care about black people, but I think the lesson he learned from that is that if he makes people mad, he’ll get his name in the news. And it’s working. At least we got the #IfSlaveryWereAChoice hashtag out of this.
