Kanye West: Slavery Was A ‘Choice’

Benny Johnson | Reporter At Large

In an absolutely wild interview Tuesday, Kanye West called slavery a “choice” and spoke about what having a free mind really means.

WATCH:

The interview took place at the TMZ offices in Los Angeles and eventually got heated between some employees and the rap mogul. West was asked about his recent pro-Trump social media postings and embrace of pro-Trump policies, activists and campaign gear.

“People are taught how to think we are taught how to feel,” Kanye when asked about his posts on Trump’s MAGA hat. “I felt a freedom in doing something everyone tells you not to do. I just love Trump.”

Kanye then went on a mind-bending tirade about why he does not use the word slavery and ultimately calling slavery a “choice.”

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice. We’re mentally in prison. I live the word prison because slavery goes direct to the idea of blacks. Prison unites us as one race. Blacks and whites being one race. The human race.”
