Kanye West

Kanye West nearly broke the Internet on Tuesday when his comment - "slavery is a choice" - was taken out of context. Kanye made the controversial comment during an interview with TMZ's Harvey Levin on Tuesday.

Kanye came under heavy artillery fire as his statement rocketed around social media. His former fans called him an "Uncle Tom" and "a coon" after he reiterated his love for President Donald Trump.

Late Tuesday, Kanye tweeted that his 'slavery' comment was taken out of context.

"To make myself clear: of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will," he said.

Kanye clarified that he meant black people were "enslaved mentally" by Democrats and the progressive left who only court the black community when they need the black vote.

"My point is for us to have stayed in that position, even though the numbers were on our side, means that we were mentally enslaved... the reason why I brought up the 400 years point is because we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years. We need free thought now. Even the statement was an example of free thought It was just an idea".

He quoted Harriet Tubman, conductor of the Underground Railroad, who famously said, "I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves."

"[O]nce again I am being attacked for presenting new ideas," he complained.

"[W]hen the media masses and scholars talk about what started today. Here's a title ... the overground hell road."

He then posted a text exchange from someone praising him for "opening the eyes of the people in the world."

  • Jes

    He needs to take his Maga hat, and just go back into seclusion with his cooning ass. Disgusting ?? and btw, it's clear this fool doesn't read. Because if he did, he would know our history. He did say after all that he doesn't read books...uneducated at its finest.

  • SpillyNillie

    I think Uncle Charla summed it up perfectly when he stated that Kanye doesn't know how to effectively communicate his thoughts. This is that time when miscommunication went badly for him.

    Did y'all see this? Kanye seem unable to express himself because he just doesn't read. You people have made a fool out to be a genius. How could your mother have been an educator and you're so proud to say that you don't read.

    It is true, if you really wanna hide something from these "woke" "free thinking" black people, you need to hide it in a book. SMH.

  • hi-liter

    There will always be Sambos and Dumb Azz Neggas no matter what. And why does he continue to post private messages between him and others to convince people about what he is saying.......These Hollywood people cant open MY eyes to shat I already can see.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    IM so over it he could have used anything to try and promote his album but he had to use the black ppl struggles and the current racial tension to do it!! It’s shameful and irresponsible! If he so talented and so much of a genius he could have allowed his talent to speak for itself but because he is lacking he had to resort to stunts and the folks that she on board with this mess and promoting it I’m so done and disgusted with them as well they riding this wave too TI I see u ? and Charmaine I expected nothing more from a less ass individual such as yourself

  • imright

    im going to Chick Fil A for lunch... anybody want anything ?? ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Aint no clarification for me personally. The words slavery and choice have never and will never belong in the same sentence. His ass is dead to me. Which is okay bc he been dead to me since he married Kim.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007
  • FukkFolks2018

    One of those new frosted sunrises. Thanks so so MUCH

  • ShelbyMoore

    The man has a song that goes “Poopy-di scoop/Scoop-diddy-whoop/Whoop-di-scoop-di-poop/Poop-di-scoopty.” People are really saying that mess is lit.

    I'm beginning to think the mentally ill are out numbering the rational thinkers.

  • Pitty Patty

    Wasnt shyt taken out of context, he said what he said.

    I get that at this point and time its on US if we continue to be mental enslaved. We do have to release the shackles of religion, violence, and not spending our money in the right places. But that's not what Kanye said. He said it was a CHOICE. As if we chose to hop on a boat and work for free for 400 years.

    Kanye needs to go visit the Whitney Plantation in Louisiana. He will see then all the "choices" we had.

  • MissHarlem

    Dead to me since Amber so at this point ?

  • iWasteTime

    Anywhoooo....
    Lauren showed up to her show ON TIME and freestyled to Nice for What.
    Let me check and see them ticket prices, can she perform her own music yet? I'm not here for the neo-soul version of songs

  • ShelbyMoore

    Well he's been dead to me since the beginning cause I just never trusted dude. Never liked him. Too much arrogance is such a turn off to me.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I liked silent...pretty lady parts Amber back then tho

  • ShelbyMoore

    Can you swing by Pollo Tropical and get me a Chicken Quesadilla Salad nix the chicken (no meat over here). Thanks.

  • hi-liter

    Negga needs to be dead to the entire black community.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    OK!!! I heard folks were carrying on about it!! It I wanna see who these folks are! They may be those white folks he speaking for it may be his team putting out fake reviews to generate a hype and make ppl believe that if they don’t like it they missing out or they not woke or deep! I’m so sick of this mess !

  • FukkFolks2018

    In the VERY beginning he wasnt like this. Freshly signed to Roc as an artist and not just a producer Ye was DOPE.

  • Pitty Patty

    I actually liked him with Amber although the red flags were there. But once he got with Kim I aint had shyt for him since. If his self esteem is low enough to marry trash, then he's not the wrapper for me.

  • MissHarlem

    I would be lying if I don't agree. She had or has some pretty lady parts and I like looking at it ??

  • FukkFolks2018

    I wanted to trade for Jane Elliott but we gotta stop inviting so many mayo peepa to the cookout. Imma still call her to see how she is doing tho. Since she is old as hell and all. I like her. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/be61673b2421358b45823cdb176984e15437597705cf643a90568d85ea2ec0df.jpg

  • FukkFolks2018

    Lmao. I love you.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Nah, I knew Amber wasn't the one in 2009 when he went to the VMAs acting out of his mind with the Henny bottle. These men can say whatever they want, but a REAL black woman is gonna have her man's back...she's not gonna have him out here making a fool of himself...high key making her look bad.

  • Ryan

    I don't even see Kanye as a man anymore. He's fallen to trump's level of maturity.

  • hi-liter

    He should have stayed with that pretty stylist/designer girl he was dating when he first came out and did that song with Jamie Foxx. She seemed down to earth but of course that was too much like right.

  • FukkFolks2018

    This is how you know he is of BAD ass energy. Just sucks your whole level of tolerance the hell out of you

  • Pitty Patty

    I dont mind the arrogance, if you can back it up. Beyonce is extremely arrogant, but she can back it up and she knows who she is and her purpose. Kanye dont know who he is. Thats the difference.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007
  • Well$$Well$$?

    Meh. I would believe his fake woke act if he kept this same energy all the time instead of when he has new music coming out. ?

  • Sircaput

    What now people don't have love for Kanye anymore...because he love Trump?

  • ShelbyMoore

    These black men don't like women who hold their feet to the fire and hold them accountable...that's why they talk all that shat about us and run to those "others" with their weak as$es.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Alexis. I think she knew he was cray as us sistas tend to pick up on MUCH QUICKER than those of mayo and mayo adjacent women.

  • MissHarlem

    Got it saved in my phone ?

  • https://www.instagram.com/nymagee/ Ny MaGee

    Kanye clarified that he meant black people were “enslaved mentally” by Democrats and the progressive left who only court the black community when they need the black vote. ---> Where did he say any of this?

  • Pitty Patty

    Alexis was her name, I think. She probably had too much sense for him. Kanye likes to control people's minds.

  • MissHarlem

    ? I ain't ashamed

  • hi-liter

    Never had love for him. When I did listen to him it was for free.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I've changed phones but I know how to find it. I mean...should I want to take a peek at it and all.

  • ShelbyMoore

    I never had any love for him, so I'm not as devastated as most people are. The people who are devastated are the people who worship other humans.

    He didnt say holocaust was a choice, he dont want that financial backlash.

    U best to say it

  • Pitty Patty

    In the interview with Charlamagne, he said that Martin and Malcolm were irrelevant and said the he didn't wanna see Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. Said Michael Jordan should be on it.

    Then he kept mentioning all those white designers that nobody in our community gives a shyt about. He was name dropping like them people actually give a shyt about them. I think Kanye did some strange things to try and get in the good graces of them why gay designers and they STILL rejected him. His feelings and ego are shattered.

    Then he mad at Bey and Jay for not coming to his wedding. Come to find out Jay and Bey were going through their own shyt in their marriage.

    Everything was about his feelings. A grown ass 40 year old man in his feeling all the damn time. Ugh. I bet Kim be wanting to slit her wrist.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Everytime I say I like that lil yt lady someone on here is like yall always inviting folks who dont belong. I love her to pieces.

You don't not get to make these dumb statements, being uninformed and out of touch...and then come back and correct it on the bases of public backlash the very next day....THAT doesn't make your thoughts FREE MANNNNNNNN it makes your thoughts convoluted and dangerous.

    "Just the concept of competition. And being in competition with so many, you know, elements at one time. On a race against time. Your age. Or yo, you getting old. Race against popularity on the radio. Khaled got this song. Drake got this song on the radio. It’s playing to death. St. Pablo ain’t playing."

    Jealousy is a sickness, Kanye...get well soon!
    If he thought no one was playing St. Pablo....then he has a rude awakening coming. If that sent him to the hospital, Kim better hold on cause all of this may send him to the grave.

Yeah, you've had some good hits along the way but I gots no use or respect for you. Last, I feel like you're so out of control that you're going to go gunning for the Carters again soon and it's going to really be on. Like they will finally annihilate you. I can't wait for it.

    That would be career suicide, and he knows it.

  • Anunnaki
  • RespectSelf

    It is was taken out of context because he did not say "slavery is a choice". He is said it "that sounds like a choice" Key word is "sound" Folks sometimes use that word to suggest something sounds like something that it is not.... which is how he used it.

  • Jayde da Blade

    Right. Smh he just tried it.
    Kanye trying to clean up his s h it but once you step in it. Its all over your shoes..

  • RespectSelf

    He said “When you hear about slavery for 400 years... For 400 years?!?! That sounds like a choice. Like you was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all?!?! You know like... it’s like we’re... we’re mentally in prison”

    He never said it was a choice nor was that even the point of his statement. He was talking about how folks are still in a mental prison and don't think for themselves. I guess everyone who took the misquoted click bait and ran with it are in that mental prison he talking about. lmao I mean you don't even have to like Kanye to know that they was able to keep folks enslaved that long by messing them up mentally. Folks did read the Willie Lynch letter right???

  • ShelbyMoore

    The thing with the meds is, you don't feel like yourself, and that's why a lot of people stop using them. I think that's what he was saying when he said he only takes them once or twice per week.

    Kim needs to give him an ultimatum, but her slow talking as$ would rather get dressed up and pretend daily.

  • wonderwoman

    You got that. The Jews control everything.

  • RespectSelf

    He hasn't really changed though......

  • Roxie Moxie

  • Soda

    The William Lynch speech is an address purportedly delivered by a certain William Lynch to an audience on the bank of the James River in Virginia in 1712 regarding control of slaves within the colony. It is considered to be a hoax. The letter purports to be a verbatim account of a short speech given by a slave owner, in which he tells other slave masters that he has discovered the "secret" to controlling black slaves by setting them against one another. The document has been in print since at least 1970, but first gained widespread notice in the 1990s, when it appeared on the Internet. Since then, it has often been promoted as an authentic account of slavery during the 18th century, though its inaccuracies and anachronisms have led historians to conclude that it is a hoax.

  • Pebbles

    HE had a chance to clarify what he meant when Van gave his opinion... instead he made a CHOICE to walk out the studio.

    Or he had the choice to clarify himself after he made comment the choice but he didn’t.

    I will say this though the memes I saw were hilarious

  • JennyJazzhands

    He's so dumb. What harriet said and the concept of mental slavery are not new ideas, einstein. And they certainly don't need to be presented by someone who doesn't read and doesn't bother to gain knowledge before speaking on a subject.

  • RespectSelf

    Wow... I am either amazed that I have yet to find the video where he actually said "Slavery was a choice" or that everybody got selective hearing.

  • Coy little wink

    This ninja think he is so deep but he is SHALLOW

  • Soda

    You must have missed yesterday's post.

  • Pebbles

    And the smell almost never leaves

  • RespectSelf

    I think I have heard this before. I will have to read up on it. If it was a hoax... It was to describe how mentally F&%$^ slaves were.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Started getting angry with Van telling him not to yell across the room when that's just what Kanye did. He yelled across the room and when we wasn't praised he got mad. You could tell that he was angry. All of that "love" shat is a ploy. He's fake. He's hurt cause he doesn't get the respect of Jay, Cole, Kendrick, etc. He needs to go read a book and stop acting like he's so right all the damn time.

  • Soda

    You're trying real hard to make him seem right.

    at what point did he say "slavery is a choice"? I went back to see. I saw and heard he said it sound like a choice. But that doesn't mean the same thing in the context he said it.

  • pure_rachet

  • T865!

    ???

  • Reina1718

    I still cant believe he got lipo!!! Like wtf & why say Rob did it?? Why blow him up?!

  • Reina1718

    He truly think he deep lol

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I don't care how many times he or anyone else attempts to "clarify" his comments, his comments will remain uninformed and ignorant.

    1. When were slaves the majority? Is he talking about on a single plantation? Certainly, he isn't talking about the entire town/city/state/country?

    1a. He does realize that slave masters intentionally enslaved Africans from different regions to prevent insurrections. If they didn't speak each other's language and didn't speak language how tf were they going to work together to kill the slave masters.

    2. So it was the mental slavery that kept Africans enslaved and not the actual systems created to enable and promote slavery? If only the slaves had freed their minds, their bodies would have followed? Oh okay...

    3. Kanye is a slave (mentally) to anti-blackness ideology. He continues to embarass himself and his ancestors in an attempt to gain favor with white people. Good luck with that.

  • pure_rachet

    didn't work for either one so he's just making the clan look and sound worse.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I thought he said he got it so that people wouldn't call him fat like they did Rob. I didn't realize he said that Rob also got lipo.

  • Reina1718

    Thats just a sensitive subject to touch, he should have promoted his music & thats that.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Random: A while ago Tokyo Toni (Blac Chyna's mother) went on an IG rant and said that Rob told her Kanye was drugged out of his mind. I think she even posted texts from Rob. It's interesting that it's all coming to the light...

  • Reina1718

    The secret was the bible, the only thing they allowed them to have

  • JennyJazzhands

    Van said it all when he basically said that kanye had no point. That what he's doing is the absence of thought not free thinking. Kanye has not made one, single point, yet. He's destroying himself and has no idea what he's standing up for.

  • RespectSelf

    I agree...

  • Soda

    Nobody has time to decipher that idiot's words. He said what he said. If he meant something else he would have corrected himself before his handlers fed him a clarification.

  • Reina1718

    & what makes him think we dont have free thought?? The music out right now is free thought cuz u can say whatever u want on songs now...like what caused him to raise from the dead to do these interviews??? An album?? This how u go about it? Putting us against each other

  • Reina1718

    Thank u!! & he's the only one who chuckled after that statement! Like where was the joke

    You are right he said what he said... he didn't have to explain himself if folks actually listened to what he was saying. His explanation was clear in the TMZ clip. I'm not trying to make dude seem right... I'm just trying to understand what folks missed. He didn't say anything NEW. He was saying what most would agree with if it had came from someone else and was worded in a way that sounds good to folks. There was no need to "decipher" anything if you actually listened to what he was saying. But if you don't like him and you don't care what he talking about.... well you get folks running around saying he said something he didn't even say... Nor was that even the point of what he was saying

  • mona q

    “Once again I am being attacked for presenting new ideas,” As spoken only by a TRUE narcissist. THESE ARE NOT NEW IDEAS...

  • RespectSelf

    I agree, but he was asked a question... and he answered it lol

  • mona q

    I think he means the years since slavery...I don't know...I'm tired of trying to reconcile his crazy...I'm done!

  • Reina1718

    U rite ?????

  • mona q

    Where the heck has he been all this time...why is he tweeting so much now...what is his agenda? I just really don't get it. I guess he succeeded in getting attention because he has been on every blog and in every news story. For some reason, I was thinking about how Amber rose shut his a$$ up a while back by saying something along the lines of him liking a finger in his bum hole...IDK why I thought about that today...I have issues. lol

  • Reina1718

    Rite like thats what they do when they see anything on themselves they dont like

  • Trace da Ace

    ******NEW POST****** PLLLEEEASSSSEEE!!!!

  • mona q

    That is how I interpreted his statement. Not that Rob got lipo...he clearly did not.

  • SweetTEE

    He literally admitted that he had an opioid addiction following lipo suction and that is why he had to cancel that Pablo tour. So basically, those drugs fried the last of his working brain cells.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    He said it at the beginning of the interview..It was a clear, spoken statement. IT was when the TMZ Staffer, Van addressed him, did he begin to try and clarify. HE SPOKE the words...."to me, blah blah blah..slavery was a choice" Correction: he said it following his cosmetic surgery confession

  • FukkFolks2018

    Its a new one

  • LexGirl

    And that is the problem!!!

  • SweetTEE

    Why would the video really be relevant when he just acknowledged that he did in fact say it and is now clarifying? Just a common sense question..

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Say it all again Blaque for the folks in the back of the room...

  • Guest

    Kanye is not dumb. Now that I have everyone's attention let me go back and clarify. smh.

  • SweetTEE

    I'm amazed that he doesnt even know any of Trumps policies. Literally blown away that he would do allllll this, yet not know the current state of events. Sad.

  • Simone

    "I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more
    if only they knew they were slaves". - Harriet Tubman

    Roxie Moxie, thank you for making Kanye's point. If only Black Democrats realized that they are slaves on the Democrat Party Plantation, they could be freed. Democrat politicians have ruined our cities, schools and broke down our families and morals, yet Black Democrats have been electing the same party in presidential, local and state elections. Look at the history of Detroit to see the evil of the Democrat Party. Their policies destroyed that once-thriving city. The Democrat Party demands that we think alike, speak alike, vote alike and hate alike. The moment a Black Man (Kanye, Dr. Carson) or Black Woman (Stacey Dash, Candace Owens) steps outside of the Democrat Party or group-think, watch the vicious attacks on your character or health in Kanye's case. That does not sound free to me!

  • NuBeauty

    I get what he saying and respect it. He not saying to forget about slavery or the effect it has caused but do not allow yourself to stay stuck in that time to not move forward in life. Its time for blacks to be healed from slavery BUT NOTHING WILL BE HEALED UNTIL WHITE PEOPLE FULLY REALIZE WHAT WAS DONE , THE EFFECTS IT HAS ON A RACE OF PEOPLE STILL TO THIS DAY AND THAT ALL OF THIS WAS CAUSED BY THEM.....PERIOD. When I say fully realize, I mean really understand (in truly, they will never know or understand until they are placed in that same situation), know that the mentality of slavery still exist and that this country was built on the backs of slaves. To understand what was stripped away from us that made us lost of who we truly are. I don't care what any other race have went through....nothing is worse than what black people of ALL time go through/went though. I think Kanye (well hope....just my thoughts) was trying to say but words/phases didn't come out right, that black people history does not start with slavery. Black people had history before that and have history after that. For society to only see that slavery is our beginning or our only history we have, shows that we have a bigger problem in this country. When you ask a young white individual about how black come into existence....more than likely, they are going to respond some off the boat type mess that is far from the truth. Black people are so much more than that. The Black Panther movie showed that when a race of people was so proud to have something showing our greatness, we came and showed out......NOTHING BUT PURE LOVE. Kanye just need to realize that before black people really can move forward, that accountability need take place first and for other races to fully open their blind eyes to seeing that the mentality of slavery still lives to this day. The effects of that Superior Slave Master mentality is their vision when they look upon us. That mindset is the fuel to their actions against us. So Kanye, I love you brotha and get what you are saying or trying to say but you cannot tell a race of people to move forward from a damaging time period when the effects takes a toll still to this day. When things can be fix on one side...then the healing can really begin and blacks can move forward.....BUT UNDERSTAND, WE WILL NEVER FORGET!!! ALSO, BLACK HISTORY IS NOT JUST SLAVERY.....TEACH THE KIDS SOME DIFFERENT AS WELL

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    anyone that designs slave Walking Dead clothes bullet holes and all for $800.00 dollars a pop.. . Is a person trying to enslave someone .... Kanya miss me with this demon shyt ... Rot in hell Bruh and you will... ?

  • kenzieangel07

    I'm sorry, but in some ways he's right! I'm most definitely not a fan of Kanye but I understood immediately what he was trying to say. For those who actually wanna hear the truth it's not hard to figure out that we still are an enslaved people mentally. The same way we stayed mentally enslaved for those 400+ years

    Don't believe it???

    Go take a look in your closet, how many designers of color are hanging in there??

    Look in the mirror, do you see weave? Fake lashes? Fake nails? Fake rears??

    Look at our black queens on social media, reality TV etc...Selling their souls for white men's riches!! Name one of them you know who gives back to their community??

    That's his point, at what time do we wake up and embrace this heritage we so proudly fight for while wearing white clothes, White hair and a white man's silicone?? and an Asians nails!! If we are indeed so proud to be black why is it that most of us outside of skin color look so very far from anything that represents our history and culture??

    Stop looking for a reason just to hate or disagree with someone, open that 3rd eye you were given and read thru the BS. He just wants you to WAKE Up not just be WOKE trust me it's a huge difference!!

  • RespectSelf

    ok... let me go look. Thanks.

  • mona q

    That is all fine and dandy except it's easy for a millionaire to be on his high horse talking about a choice...he doesn't experience the same struggles day to day as the average black person PERIOD. He hasn't for years due to his privilege. He may have experienced OTHER forms of oppression but he hasn't a clue about the real world experiences. So while yeah, it's cute to say we choose to continue to be enslaved mentally, most people are working hard, doing right and are still being OPPRESSED at every measure. Whether it be at work, in pay, in their career or simply running down the street while black and being constantly harassed. I would challenge Kanye to explain how people are supposed to free their minds ... when racism exists OVERTLY and COVERTLY...period. Band together and what? Be considered black entity extremist...we have ALL seen what has happened with the Black Panther movement and its members and recently how they try to discredit and label the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement...Kanye needs to sit his ass down. How has he used his platform to enrich, EMPOWER and change the narrative? HE HASN'T...SHUT UP KANYE.

  • RespectSelf

    I missed it... He said it somewhere after the "that sound like a choice" or before?

  • SweetTEE

    I can understand your perspective, but what I don't respect is that Kanye has the given platform and yet he is the exact person who is mentally enslaved. I want him to go read the willie lynch letters or the miseducation of the negro and see how all that applies to how he lives HIS life before putting white people on a pedestal. And no, I dont wear designer or weaves, blah blah. None of that matters because I have my mind right and everything I do is a reflection of that. Kanye is extremely ignorant to be so "smart". He knows nothing of recent events or politics-he admitted himself.

    There are too many people out here buying black and trying to improve our neighborhoods like hoodestates and Kanye aint doing nothing but kissing the same white asses that enslaved us from the get go. Where are his black history or improvement classes in Chicago? What is he doing to change the mental enslavement? Nothing but running his mouth. That negro aint WOKE. If he were, he would change his damn self at this point.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    So, your examples of black people stepping outside of Democratic party is C**n @ssss Ben Carson who called "sl@ves immigrants?"

    How can a man who's not even woke tell others to wake up? His wife fits your examples of being enslaved better than anyone else.
    Go take a look in your closet, how many designers of color are hanging in there??
    Look in the mirror, do you see weave? Fake lashes? Fake nails? Fake rears??
    Look at our black queens on social media, reality TV etc...Selling their souls for white men's riches!! Name one of them you know who gives back to their community??
    He's not woke, he's equally yoked to a materialistic attention-seeking hag. Birds of a feather...

  • RespectSelf

    He is clarifying his statement about slavery because everybody started posting Kanye said "slavery is a choice" I didn't here him say that. Nor did I see in his clarification of his statement about slavery where he said that he said that. I personally think it is scary that folks will misquote someone to imply a completely different message than what they were even trying to give... And folks will run with it and swear something was said that wasn't even said... Thats media and social media for you huh

  • zero options

    uh, don't forget his yeezy designer line.
    if you're following that vein, he's guilty too.

  • zero options

    or at least a fashion design class..

  • JV

    Kanye, like his orange friend, has an increasingly annoying habit of saying off-the-cuff remarks without giving any serious consideration to the subject. It almost seems like a point of pride with both to be willfully ignorant: Consider how both of them boast about how they never read books. Kanye said what he said because he thought it sounded good to him in the heat of the moment, and that's it. His only "research" here was to lazily quote Harriet Tubman out of context.

    If he wants people to break free from constraints in their own lives, or whatever, that's great. But you can do that -- and people DO -- and still have a healthy, instructive understanding of history and of injustice.

    It's almost as if he suggests that by knowing the past -- and understanding its implications on society today -- you're a "prisoner" to it. Nonsense. But piss on a Confederate statue and Kanye's new friends will start to cry. Stunning hypocrisy.

  • kenzieangel07

    It's sad you missed my entire point which proves my entire point!!! It's not about crazy unrealistic Kanye, my point was to read thru his BS and understand what he is trying to say but can't articulate intelligently. That brother is clearly lost. However he makes a valid point on the mental enslaving which still occurs today.

    I know there are plenty of folks going natural, rocking brands by their own, but unfortunately most of them don't reach the masses.

    The ones most young black kids get to see represent the exact opposite of what our ancestors died for AND therefore remain enslaved mentally while influencing the next generation to do the same. I Never EVER said Kanye was Woke which again proves my point! People skim over what they read, they see certain words stand out and then roll with it...Learn to focus, process and understand fully..Wakeness ???

  • iWasteTime

    That's his point, at what time do we wake up and embrace this heritage we so proudly fight for while wearing white clothes, White hair and a white man's silicone?? and an Asians nails!! If we are indeed so proud to be black why is it that most of us outside of skin color look so very far from anything that represents our history and culture??
    --------
    Thar can not be his point. He lost his mother to cosmetic surgery, turned around and married queen "not her orginal face" and had cosmetic surgery himself. He also brags and tries to be respected as much or more than those white designers. He don't Roca Wear or Sean John fame and money, he wants to be compared to Chanel and LV

  • Tlowe89

    I’m a slave go by bills that’s for darn sure.

    It’s crazy how every time these Benares come up someone always want to bring up the whole your a slave to the white man because you have a closet full of designer crap or wear weave. What’s the difference in having a closet full of target or Walmart stuff???
    Now I have 1 designer purse ( a crossbody little yang yang) and I’ve had it for two years, and I don have several weaves, and a wig I made. I will NEEEEVVVERRRRRR give up my Cambodian hair. NEVER do you hear me.

    My hair is natural and loves doing what it wants. I hate dealing with it. I can never get it to look how I want even when I straighten it. So most of the time it’s in a ponytail. I’m pushing 30 and yep I still rock a ponytail 90% of the time because idk what to do with my hair. So when I get fed up with it, I get a sew in for a little variety and because it behaves how I want it to.
    I’m not trying to be anything other than who I am. Just because you spend your money on materialistic things or beauty enhancing garments or hair doesn’t make you less black or feel less black.

  • Kemi

    Does he have an off button? Can someone pls shut it down! Ppl like Kanye failed to realize that after slavery and disenfranchisement, it was a CRIME to educate African Americans. Reconstruction was abandoned and Jim Crow took root in many parts of the country. No voting rights or same education afforded to whites until 1960s. Anyone remember, Brown vs Board of Education of 1954?

    Even after years Lincoln delivered emancipation and proclamation, which was as shallow as shat..,I’m so disappointed that Donda didn’t teach her son about this. She was a professor for goodness sake!

    My God all you guys are responding to is KANYE, My point was in all of his BS there was some truth there...IDGAF about Koonye at all he's a lost cause and will never recover, but even through all his crazy he had some points. He's like that guy u get out , who woke up for 5 secs from the camera flash but was them dragged back to that sunken place. Still doesn't negate the fact that we are making White America billionaires but barely helping our fellow man break out the hood. But go ahead and stay Woke!!

  • SweetTEE

    I read and understood your entire statement twice. And there is nothing slow about me, so I'm able to understand what people imply or infer. Google the definitions and Re-read what you wrote. You are not as woke as you think if you dont understand the messenger plays a major part of what people believe.

    There is nothing dumb or stupid about Kanye and he has ALWAYS been able to articulate himself intelligently under scrutiny, so why is that the excuse now? Nothing he is saying is new- people just dont respect it coming from this fool who lives his life exactly the way a mental enslaved lost black man would. Its way too many "woke" black people walking around for this fool to make it seem like we dont know better and he is enlightening us. And he will continue to do so and spiral out of control as long as people like you and his wife keep enabling and praising him this dumb shit and not being real with him.

  • kenzieangel07

  • SweetTEE

    I agree with how the media can spin things but coming from Kanye and everything he has since said (Kanye vs the people), I think its safe to say that we understood it exactly how he meant it. Slavery was a direct result of mental slavery and is greatly detailed in the Willie Lynch letters. Kanye knows that and he meant exactly what people understood.

  • Applebootay

    There is no taking out of context when he said it was "a choice"....albeit MENtally or PHYsically...... IT wasn't and ISN'T or EVER will be A CHOICE....by definition of the very word which is a VERB...

    enslaved....by very definition:to make (someone) a slave.synonyms:subjugate, suppress, tyrannize, oppress, dominate, exploit, persecute; rareenthrall, bind, yoke; disenfranchise

    It's liken to the Stockholm Syndrome (you hear about people getting kidnapped everyday that could've have escaped but didn't)

    Stockholm syndrome is a condition that causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors as a SURVIVAL STRATEGY during captivity.[1] These feelings,resulting from a bond formed between captor and captives during intimate time spent together, are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims. Generally speaking, Stockholm syndrome consists of "strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.

    So when Harriet Tubman helped "slaves from the south" to escape to the "free North"...please don't think they welcomed us with open hands.....it took a long slow time....remember slavery was a part of the constitution.

    So We don't need CoonYe telling us that many of us are still "mentally slaved". Just look at his life.....that's Exhibit A of what it is to be mentally slaved.....He meant what he said before that they should have fought back....now he trying to clean it up.....TOO LATE....you said that dumb shat....

    They only CHOICE my ancestors made was to stay alive and thank God they did because had they not, it would be NO US.

    so you and crazy azz CoonYe think that slavery all boils down to a mental state? That we, WE OURSELVES mentally ENSLAVED OURSELVES....go read my post up top....first start with the very definition of being enslaved, then follow up with the psychology of the Stockholm syndrome, then end with a history lesson on rather or not we were really free in the North.

    Plus his dumb uneducated azz meant just that, that all we had to do was fight back....no one needs a lesson on being mentally slaved today...all you have to do is go read the willie lynch letters to know that....but we wanna act like he dropping knowledge...GTFOH.

  • Applebootay

    OMG thank you...these people are crazy...Malcolm X call the negroes of the civil rights movement mentally slaved as well...and the ones before that and the ones before that.....BECAUSE THATS THE PSYCHOLOGY OF 400 YEARS OF OPPRESSION..........and I'm going to assume all these fools know who Marcus Garvey was and what he was about.......these people are dumb azz hell.

    I took Kanye's statement to mean what he said. If I were to remain in a specific state of being for any extended period of time I've made a choice to stay in that situation. In EVERY movie I've seen with slaves there were always two groups - those that had resolved in their mind they would be a slave and those who sought freedom.

    Either way you look at it - they made a choice. My black azz would have made a choice to die attempting to gain freedom before I stayed in that situation.

  • Applebootay

    That's called a lobotomy.....where you fall into the sunken place and they replace your brain....I wonder who is walking around with the old Kanye brain...LOL

  • Applebootay

    Yup.

  • RespectSelf

    they dropped the full video... he basically explained his point

  • RespectSelf

    lol no he was trying to say that then too... he specifically said that we're in a mental prison (referring to present day)

  • Applebootay

    I took Kanye's statement to mean what he said.

    But the whole point is.....drumroll please..............that's NOT WHAT HE SAID....and I'm not even going to debate the "they made a choice" I now realized only people uneducated on our history would back this up and this point...yall so deep indoctrinated, yall actually think yall saying something...

  • RespectSelf

    I don't see how he think he saying something new.... He mad the New slaves song almost 6 years ago. The only thing he changed up on is trying to say "prison" instead of mental slave.... because he wants to united with everyone as humans... lol It's funny, but it's not hard to follow.

  • facingrealit1

    I am saying something - you just disagree with it and that is your right!

  • Applebootay

    My Man! He said and I quote...."400 years of slavery, sounds like a choice to me"....."they could've have fought back or why didn't they fight back"....and those "a lot of people" drink whatever the media tells them...so I'm not surprised that a lot of people are very ignorant...

  • Applebootay

    Thank you...

  • Applebootay

    LOL

  • Applebootay

    Nope.....you missing some shat in between all those dots..........let me break it down for you....he actually said why didn't they fight back!!!!!!!!!!!! where is that in your transcript??? He didn't refer to the mentally in prison to way after the first point of it being a choice because they didn't fight back....I suggest you go pull another transcript....he said what he said...and now he's cleaning it up....btw, I love Ye and I'm from Chicago...we go hard for our own....but this ninja is wack and even wacker for saying these are new ideas.....don't that tell you something right there?

  • 888

    I also understood what he was trying to get across. Unfortunately, it is a very "delicate" subject that any wrong word can lead to the offended party being close minded to discussion. I think the true definition of being "woke" entails a number of things. One being that if the community has a problem you must define the problem to get to the solution. Is the fact that black people were forced to be slaves the problem? Sadly it happened over 500 years ago and can never be changed. And yet there is still a problem. So what is it? Slavery was the beginning of a very deep rooted problem that still affects present day black americans. I think that is what he was definitely trying to get across.
    Saying that slavery was a choice was the wrong thing to say even with further explanation it was still insensitive and would never fly with the people.
    I would just like to ask others opinion on this: Understandably, being physically enslaved was not what they wanted and some could've suffered from some type of syndrome such as Stockholm syndrome, but in all honestly as humans isn't our basic instinct survival? Could it be that they decided to not fight back because for them it was the best way to survival. I am only asking because in this instance it would've been essentially a choice.

  • Elevated Soul

    Blacks who still possess our "own" minds totally get what Kanye said.........Blacks with "slave mentalities" will never get what Kanye said because they are not "free" in the mind. They are not open to anything that requires "independent thought".

    Basically he's saying "there were more slaves on the plantation than slave owners,and yet most slaves in America who were sold out of Africa chose to remain a slave.He is also saying that while the "physical chains" have been relinquished that the chains on the mind remain over 150 years since the shackles were unlocked....

    Mental bondage is much harder to shed than physical bondage.....

  • Applebootay

    Soooooooo you haven't even read it? That's basic AA History 101....and this is the very reason so many people are defending this fool, not saying you are....but sadly, I'm not surprised....we're not educated on our own history....

  • Applebootay

    THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

  • Applebootay

    But for real tho....

  • JennyJazzhands

    Someone asked him if he was conservative and his response was that he doesn't know enough or hasn't researched enough to say. Dumb. What adult doesn't bother learning about the policies and stances that will affect them?
    He claims he doesn't agree with everything trump says, I'd love to hear what parts he does agree with. Other than "do anything for money" and "marry an accessory".

  • RespectSelf

    But the media was telling folks he meant something that he didn't.... The thing is he was CLEARLY trying to make a bigger point that had NOTHING to do with slavery. He worded it wrong and it sounded like something it was not even about. Media goes wild with the misquoted headline of 'Kanye says slavery is a choice'... folks didn't even care to hear or see what was actually said because of that....So those "a lot of people" were not the ones who drank whatever the media told them.... The ones you are referring to would most likely share your thoughts with out really knowing why lol. But I understand why people would feel that way is that was really what he was saying....

  • Applebootay

    don't forget to add this Ninja said it was new ideas he's dropping....for that alone....#get the strap

  • Applebootay

    You know what...I'm going to do some research on "absence of thought"....BRB....LOL

  • Applebootay

    WOW! reaLLLLLLLY? Sounds like a choice....is a choice.....CHOICE......Choice......no matter what adjective you put in front of it is an action word....that our ancestors decided...all on their own that they would rather stay slaves....I guess they enjoyed it that much...nothing was taken out of context....

    Listen....VAN the TMZ guy was RIGHT THERE IN THE STUDIO with him when he said it and he went off....So he misunderstood too? He went off for no reason right?

  • Applebootay

    Dead.

  • EMILY POST

    I understand what he is saying but he lost all credibility a long time ago.
    I am glad he took a stand with the MAGA but his career is over.

  • Miss Thang

    God, he's insufferable. Get off social media. You are unwell.

  • Applebootay

    So I guess Van the Tmz guy who went in on his azz, who was actually there in the same room took it out of context too.........Listen, don't get me wrong, we've all said some things we regret....instead of insulting our intelligence further....he should just apologize for saying some crazy shat instead of saying we took it out of context...my sister does this all the time....she doesn't read, doesn't know history but her ego won't let her stay in her lane, so when my family is sitting around having intellectual conversations on history, politics...etc....she always tries to insert herself saying something she heard or read on the internet...but sounding so dumb.....because it isn't self knowledge, shes trying to reiterate what she heard....instead of quietly sitting there soaking up wisdom.......her self inflated ego (which is low self esteem in reverse) causes her to jump in a lane she knows nothing about. So when she's corrected she gets all defensive and tries to say she didn't mean it that way......Yes you did....you thought you knew what you were talking about....how about staying in your lane and STFU? WHich is what Kanye should say...."I'm sorry, I say dumb shat all the time".....

  • Miss Thang

    I love how he's acting like that was some long lost quote that he discovered and brought to national attention. Like, dude, that is the most famous quote of hers. You aint teaching shit.

  • Applebootay

    Yes he said that too but not in context when he said slavery being a choice.....that's why the TMZ lit his azz up.....that mental prison brain fart was just him trying to sound smart....stop defending him....HE got it all wrong....and would do better to just admit it.

  • Applebootay

    He need to go where crying azz tyrease went....LOL....I haven't heard from him since he was dragged off social media....

  • Miss Thang

    and it's not even having a therapeutic affect on him if he's only taking his meds once or twice per week. He may as well not be taking his meds.

  • TruthIs

    You fucking idiot...he said that we blk ppl today are making the choice of being mentaly enslaved. U too busy listening with the intent to argue then to understand. You so fucked in the head and mentally enslaved...u r the nigga he talking about. You wouldnt get what he is saying. Only woke ppl get what Kanye said. U clearly twisting his words and taking shit out of context. Kanye never said that our ancestors choosed. WAKE THE FUCK UP OR BE FOREVER SLEEP. MY BLK PPL TRULY ARE FUCKED...SAD BUT TRUE.

  • Miss Thang

    yeah.. it's depressing actually. but he is seriously sick in the head. There's no coming back from this.

  • Applebootay

    You cray cray....and your alternative facts gets lost on me......the only people who will agree are people whose only history education is from the internet....Its not even about "getting it." you can twist his words however you want to support your theory baby cause I'm as woke as they come so you can miss me with your BS today. That ninja is an indoctrinated coon and you sound like one too....but hiding behind these alternative facts....with your harmful Hotep ideologies.....Hotep, but Notep...only Fauxtep azz people....GTFOH....and go back to sleep...

  • Applebootay

    F You! That's not what he said...Take your fake woke azz back to sleep...You sound like the world's biggest fool, if we now living in a day where if I don't get what this crazy azz trump loving clown is trying to say make me crazy????? SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIddddddddddddddddd

  • Applebootay

    And for the record, I'm not disagreeing that some of us are mentally enslaved....I'm arguing that that's not what that ninja said....NOT AT ALL....Unlike you, I don't need Kanye, who says he never reads a book to drop science on me....what he's saying about mental slavery....is nothing new.....how could I argue that.....but that's not what that ninja said....get over it.

    he just loves Trump's ignorance and arrogance. That he has the "freedom" to say whatever he wants to say to and about anything and anyone. Koonye wants that same "freedom" because that to him means "power." After all, Trump did win the election.

  • Taj

    Your response is nonsense. Alternative facts? Where did the commenter lie? You have ZERO facts. Get off the internet immediately and go learn your history.

  • Taj

    His career is 'over' b/c people keep labeling him as crazy. What's so crazy about stating the fact that we are still in mental slavery? We in the community who are really 'woke' have been saying that for years. This is not new information.

  • Taj

    now you don't want to listen to him now that he's stating facts, but just yesterday I'm sure you were up in arms about his comment on slaver that you took out of context. Typical.

  • Taj

    He's not 'assuming' since he's speaking of us as a collective. Of course there are many conscious brothers and sisters who know their history but unfortunately many of us are still in bondage

  • Miss Thang

    we are heeeeeeere -----------><-----------

  • ZZZ

    Why don't you (and some other people on this site) do a little research to see when and why black people switched from being primarily Republicans to Democrats. I wonder if Kanye did the research?

  • sherri2016

    He's not woke and he's not making a point he's still enslaved to his wife to drugs and to everyone speaking for him I'm trying to see your point because I don't see his

  • Taj

    I like how Kanye provided context for his statements that no one with half a brain can deny (mental slavery in the black community) yet people still wanna dismiss him as a crazy person. Thus proving his point.

  • SweetTEE

    You might just be right.

  • dontgetblocked

    Black Democrats are mentally enslaved!!

  • dontgetblocked

    He needs to rehearse his speeches. He's trying to open the eyes of the enslaved but our people are mostly uneducated and not able to accept the message. Of course, we're mentally enslaved. We're the lowest race. Our men don't love and protect their women or children. Even Hispanics make family the center of their lives.

  • Taj

    Get your head out of your own azz then maybe you can comprehend what the man said. He said '400 years of slavery, that sound like a choice.' So what does that mean? It means that even given the choice to runaway or rebel MANY, NOT ALL slaves chose to stay. That is what you call a CHOICE. You get it? Also, that 400-year time line INCLUDES THE PRESENT DAY. So what does that mean? That means that black people in America, the dencedents of slaves, are STILL choosing enslavement in the form of mental bondage.

  • Yup, I said it

    Kanye and his wife and in laws are enslaved to money, wealth, fame, hedonism, sex and porn addiction, name brand labels, celebrity worship etc but I guess that type of slavery is acceptable with Ye. Kanye is now uncomfortable with his black history because he is surrounded by white people and his kids are mixed. They are very uncomfortable with that history and he is now ashamed of it. Does Kanye think if he was born before 1860 he would have been mentally strong enough to not have been a slave or would he have been picking cotton like every other "enslaved" person of color? Its easy to say in 2017 slavery was a choice when your not walking in around chained by the neck. Kanye weak self would have died after being horse whipped once.

  • ZZZ

    Well Kanye, I think you should stop being enslaved by the Kardashians. If only you can mentally free your mind, body and soul from these people.

    Anyway, I wonder how many people researched to see when and why black people, who were primarily Republicans, switched over to Democrats. Just curious.

    Oh, when I did a spell check over the name Kardashians, this is what I got.

  • Taj

    You should probably block me too. I don't follow the flock like the 95% of black people who vote Democratic. It's not a party thing but if 95% of us vote the same way but we still got got the same problems AND WORSE than we had 50 years ago, what dose that tell you??? No, republicans are not the savior for blacks. So don't try that dumb logic either of complaining about republicans to justify voting for democrats.

  • Taj

    Is that your justification for voting for slave holders and the k!an (aka the Democratic party)?

  • Taj

    Neither one of them have our best interests at heart. That's obvious. Don't continue to excuse the Dem party just b/c you think the Republicans are racist. They BOTH are your slavemaster.

  • Elevated Soul

    Thank You... Those that think on an "elevated level" can easily make the connection just as you did.

  • Taj

    I agree the 2-party system is a distraction. But Kanye never aligned himself with the republican party. He said he likes Trump as a person. He didn't say anything of his policies. Those things are not mutually exclusive. you got life-long republicans that don't like trump. That's the media turning it into a political issue.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That was deep. ?

  • Taj

    I know right. I myself no longer follow the flock like the 95% of black people who vote Democratic. It's not a party thing but if 95% of us vote the same way but we still got got the same problems AND WORSE than we had 50 years ago, what dose that tell us??? No, republicans are not the savior for blacks. I hate when people try to use that dumb logic of complaining about republicans to justify voting for democrats. WE are the solution. You don' t hear the Indians, Arabics, or East Asians complaining about who's in office. You know why? They have their OWN insulated communities. What's going on in the white house hardly affects us day-to-day unless you chose give your attention to the spectacle that is political news. What MATTERS is what's going on in OUR COMMUNITIES. When we have our own $h!t (schools, businesses, banks etc.) and stop looking for a hug and a handout from the oppressor, that is when we our voice will be taken seriously in this society. All the complaining and carrying on is NOT DOING IT.

  • Elevated Soul

    Correction: Those that agree with my words are "woke". Those with shackles on their minds will display the ignorance you display.

    The coons are Black Democrats.You are MASSIVE COONS,even Malcolm X said it and that man was assassinated decades before I was born.You vote for a party that created the KKK. You vote for a party who had a president by default (LBJ) who stated, "I'll have those niggggers voting Democrat for 200 years",and you cape for that party.

    Get the he!! on somewhere with your slave minded foolishness.......Nuff said.

    More than many Blacks are in bondage mentally. All you have to do is listen to them. Fools still out here talking about "good hair".

    Fools still out here acting as if Blacks are to be a monolithic people.Fools still out here calling other Blacks crazy simply because they think differently....

    These are the slaves Harriet Tubman was talking about. These are the slaves who Harriet had to pull out her steel on because they wanted to remain with their captor.

  • rachel

    I "get" what Kanye is saying in his text messages and, frankly, I do agree with the text messages included in SR's post. However, the vessel by which the message is being delivered is significantly flawed and the manipulation of the black masses by the MSM through other black celebrities is quite effective.

    It is commonly known that blacks are primarily emotional and Kanye made a serious error in blurting out "...slavery is a choice" without giving the full background of what he actually meant.

    I am not a "Kanye fan" neither am I a therapist but I do think that he is a narcissist with deep seated issues of inadequacy/inferiority because of his "blackness". I also think that he yearns to dissolve his "blackness" in the white elite world but, all issues aside, I "get" and agree with what he is saying in the listed text messages.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Kanye IS NOT WOKE!

    NOT A GENIUS - NEITHER MUSICALLY OR MARKETING
    (An Excellent Cut and Paste - Photoshop Musical Artist in a low-skill set music genre).

    No Quincy Jones (Wrote the Soundtrack to The Color Purple), Marvin Gaye (Socially Conscious Album, 'What's Going On)...

    OR... Issac Hayes (Oscar Winner - Composer of Soundtrack 'Shaft")...

    OR even R. KELLY - 12 Play, 'I Believe I Can Fly' or "Caught In the Closet" or his BET Performance of 'Contagious' - Glee Style, and he's a certified pervert!!!

    Kendrick Lamar won a PULITZER, AND NO DRAMA!

    His music did the talking, not taping another artist on phone call, or crying about a fellow artist and collaborator's kid doesn't play with his kids, or wanting to use the lost of a dear loved one for self-promotion [SIC]!

    KANYE IS THE BENEFICIARY OF A DUMBED-DOWN WORLD WHERE PEOPLE ARE FOLLOWERS, AND JUST ABOUT ANY CELEBRITY CAN GRAB NATIONAL HEADLINES, SAY, BLAC CHYNA, OK!

    His politics is his business, just as mine and yours, and he and so many others are still asleep, if they think either party really runs this country!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Many informed Black people know the truth about Lincoln freeing the slaves, or how the slave trade existed for 400 years!

    IT'S A CONFLICT OF INTEREST FOR WHITE PEOPLE TO LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD, BRING EQUITY TO ALL (including poor whites too) because corporate greed rules (the 1 percent), not Trump or either political party!

  • Mark mcharm

    What does the Republican message offer black people ? it is the message not the party that attracts voters, they offer us nothing that is why we need to be Independent because unless they offer inclusion why should we give them our Vote.? you think a Black person in Atlanta or Nyc wants to associate with Hannity or O reilly .? two known Racist and "Conservatives" who do nothing but maligne Black people for economic gain.

    This Fake woke movement is hilarious but By protesting Kanye they are doing exactly what everyone who is not on the Democratic Plantation says they do.

    Black Democrats proved Crazy Kanye exactly right. Protesting, ridiculing him and black listing him trying to hurt and intimidate him... We all been saying this for years Kanye took the blog conversation that everyone has been having and elevated it .

    They were claiming he was a Genius and hanging on to his every word. The wealthy little black boys in music were all trying to get them a Kardashian looking chick. They exalted Kanye until he wore that MAGA hat.

    You don't seem right to be SPAZing out like that. Neither can you read or comprehend well. I said many slaves chose not to rebel. I DID NOT say 'revolt.' There is a difference. Anyone with a 3rd grade education knows there were slave revolts. Why are you still talking about that? That was not my point. Jeez, really you gotta start reading before you SPAZ. Since you're so smart and well-read then surely you know that Haiti actually had a SUCCESSFUL slave revolt that ended slavery in that country. Didn't happen here in a America. Catch up on your history past the elementary school level please.

  • the watcher

    i truly believe that you are really confused. for you to say ..if only Black Democrats realized that they are slaves on the Democrat Party Plantation, they could be freed. so are you saying republicans are God chosen people who live in a land of milk and honey and it's NO such thing as a republicans plantation? you can't have it both ways, but because you have been brainwashed into thinking a whole race of black democrats are slaves on a plantation bc we make a choice as to what political party i voted for. that's what massa want you to keep saying divide and conquer that's the oldest trick in the book. and i see you fell for it.
