  1. "African Accent?" A black born and raised in Germany would sound African to u cos he's black..Stop d ignorance. Theres nothing like African accent,No one speaks African.. How about European accent? french n dutch ppl sound different when they speak English right?..We wanna ignore how big and diverse the continent of Africa is…All Africans don't sound the same.. As for M.B let him be..He's real

  2. Yall trippin, You can still hear his accent. He sounds tired here so he isnt talking aggressively, he did just get off a plane…

  3. HONESTLY, I AGREE WITH KANYE WEST! AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT I'D NEVER THOUGHT THAT I'D SAY! YOU HAVE TO REALLY LISTEN. EVEN THE GUY THAT WANTED TO BE KING IN THE MOVIE WAKANDA SUBLIMINALLY SAID THE SAME THING, HE SAID "MY ANCESTORS EVEN KNEW THAT DEATH WAS BETTER THAN BONDAGE". LOTS OF FOLK BACK THEN CHOSE TO STAY AT THE PLANTATION BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T REALLY HAVE OPTIONS. THE SLAVES WHO WERE SET FREE BY THEIR MASTERS, DIDN'T HAVE ANYWHERE TO GO AFTER LEAVING THE PLANTATION, NO MONEY, FAMILY, ECT. SO THEY FELT LIKE, WELL I HAVE A ROOF OVER MY HEAD HERE, AND I AM GETTING FED DAILY SO I WILL STAY DESPITE THE BEATINGS! AND OTHERS SAID I'D RATHER DIE THAN TO LIVE THIS WAY, AND ATTEMPTED TO ESCAPE AND OFTEN TIMES WERE CAPTURED AND CAUGHT. OTHERS THAT WITNESSED THAT, KNEW THE CONSEQUENCES IF THEY TRIED IT. SO YES, SOME PEOPLE DID CHOOSE SLAVERY. HOWEVER…..MOST OF THEM DID BECAUSE THEY DID NOT HAVE A CHOICE AND WOULDN'T DARE COMMIT SUICIDE! THIS IS THE QUICKEST WAY THAT I CAN BREAK THIS DOWN SO THAT PEOPLE CAN SEE WHAT I THINK KANYE WAS TRYING TO EXPRESS….

  4. All yall acting like u never heard of code switching before, you dont always speak the same way, you damn sure dont speak the same way you speak to your parents that you speak to your friend

  5. To the people defending Kanye by saying he is talking about mental slavery after the abolition of slavery I kinda get where yall coming from but at the same time Kanye is a black millionaire Obama was just president and hiphop is the most dominant music genre right now you really still think we enslaved mentally? or you just tryna sound woke for likes

  6. And remember we sold ourselves out first. It's called trade so a lot of the traders where Africa prominent chiefs as of then. Yes it was a choice that our fore fathers made. People who dont know how it really started are the ones confuse

  7. Slavery was a choice and people who thinks like that died some run away but if you act while you still close to home. Is no longer a choice if you let them take you far.

  8. He a good analogy did Kim get robbed by choice, so I guess if you walking through the hood and 50ty or 60ty ninjas roll up on Kanye with guns it's his choice to be a punk and get robbed or a brave ninja and die for his money and jewelry you do the math

  9. Its alot of brainless zombies in rbe comments. They more focused on discrediting Michaels African heritage more than they're focusing on what he said. I don't like the N word but yall some dumb ass Niggas. Furthermore, the accent is quite obvious. People have become so stupid that theyll manipulate the truth just to have something to tell jokes about.

  10. Us Hations fought and won for our independents in 1804 πŸ˜‡ you Americans was slaves for 400 years and accepted it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  11. I think people don't understand what Kanye is trying to say, he's too smart for the general public.. get on his level people!!!

  12. Yeah Africa is awesome lol give me a break. If you educate yourselves estimates say 2% of slaves were captured. War lords in Africa traded a tribe's war slaves for items. First slave masters were warlord chiefs in Africa
