  2. Kanye just wants attention. His just known as Kim’s husband now and no one talking about him so he just trying to get back in the news

  3. Black people. Leave these Wordly stars alone and get into God. Don’t follow them. They luv money. Look how he said he was Yrsus. Don’t buy his stuff or go to his concerts.

  4. In his rant, Van essentially called white people the enemy. THAT hurts the community more than Kanye telling people to think free.

  5. I assumed Kanye's rant was more relevant to the 400 year duration being "a choice".
    His confused thinking & delivery is directly related to the psychiatric antipsychotic medication he has been prescribed in the past. A person with his "platform" requires assistance when coming off the medication e.g. psychological CBT cognitive behavioural therapy.

  6. It’s free speech if I’m being honest it’s pathetic how soft and easily offended people are obviously slavery wasn’t a choice but fuck me it’s his opinion that he whole heartedly believes in and let him have his own voice and opinions and stop making tonnes of videos on the subject that you caused in the first place

  7. I understand what Kanye is saying but….. He better be careful and tred lightly. Before THEY come at him like the others who aren't here with us no more for saying the same thing

  8. Why is everyone so concerned for this loser, he is trash, can anyone name the last good thing he did, go ahead I'll wait.

  9. People do not get anything …kanye does not refer slavery to history ….but to the present….slave in our society means :
    slave to the system to the money to the drugs to the ….fame and the technology …but people are ignorant
    “When a wise man points at the moon the imbecile examines the finger.” confucius

  10. The fact that he came out as a Trump supporter and we are STILL talking about it shows that people get ripped apart for differing opinions. If he said he supports Bernie or Hillary nobody would even talk about it. This idea that Trump and his supporters are all evil racists is ridiculous and only divides people further.
