Kanye West continues to reveal that he has completely lost his mind. One week after going on a ridiculous rant and siding with Donald Trump, Kanye proved that he has issues that are deeper than anyone could imagine.

During an interview with TMZ, Kanye shared his love for Trump and claimed that most rap artists liked Trump before he became president. He brought up Snoop who once participated in a roast of Donald Trump that appeared on Comedy Central in 2011.

However, Kanye made an insane statement by saying that slavery was a choice for Black people.

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years, that sounds like a choice,” Kanye said. “You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all? I think we’re mentally in prison. Slavery goes too much to the idea of Blacks. Prison unites us as one race. We’re the human race.”

The statement further exposed Kanye to be a narcissist who will sell out an entire race of people for his own gain. The effects of slavery are evident to this day. Following slavery, Blacks had to deal with Jim Crow era laws and lynching, housing discrimination, police brutality, and mass incarceration.

Kanye’s wealth has allowed him to be shielded from the issues that Blacks face on a day-to-day basis. He’s living in a false world where struggle is not real and history does not dictate the present.

At this point, Kanye’s music is irrelevant. He is a danger to Black progression.
