Kanye West Says Back People Enjoy Being Slaves

Trump is one of rap's favorite people



Just when I was beginning to think, "hey, Kanye may actually be onto something," he goes on to do or in this case, make one of the dumbest statements I've ever heard. Few hours after his nearly two-hour long interview with Charlamagne Tha God went live, West appeared on TMZ's live newsroom with ardent Trump supporter Candace Owens to wax strongly about his love for Trump. 

But that's not the talking point. Kanye just told the TMZ newsroom that he believes black people like being slaves. "When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice," he says. "Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all y'all."


When a black man opens his mouth to make light joke (I'm going to assume that's what it was) about slavery and the struggles of his people ... that's  way beyond the sunken place. A flash can get you out of the sunken place, but there's really no saving Kanye from whatever bullshit he's on. 

Thankfully, there was a black man in the room to check him.
