Chile….. What a week it has been. Kanye decided to show his UNfair behind. We all know that he has a way with words like non-other, but this time I think he really got our attention.
Aside from this picture…..

And many other things he had “free thought” about, nothing quite sparked the fire of the people than that of “slavery being a choice” (his words exactly). Actually, I take that back.

His EXACT words were and I quote, “When you hear about slavery for 400 years… For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.”

Ye stays finding ways to get on people’s nerves…. I have gone back and forth with so many folk this past week. To be honest, my issue isn’t with his opinion because anyone can have one of those. In the words of my NOW good friend, Van Lathan, I don’t think Kanye was thinking at all when he made said comments.

I gave him a pass when his mom passed away, because who doesn’t deserve that? But his mental has gone downhill since then. I think we can agree that he’s a musical genius, and that his “out of the box” thinking has brought us some hits, bruh!
