50+ Of The Best Responses To Kanye West Saying Slavery Was A Choice

Kanye West has said a lot of controversial things. One time, he went off script on a hurricane Katrina fundraiser and said former US President George Bush “doesn’t care about black people.” On another occasion, he interrupted Taylor Swift’s MTV Video Music Awards acceptance speech to suggest that Beyonce probably deserved it more. The outrage his previous remarks have caused, however, can’t even compare to the backlash the musician has just received from the internet over his recent slavery comments.

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years… for 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” Kanye said during an appearance on TMZ. He later used Twitter to explain his claim: “Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved.”

Slavery in America started in 1619 when a Dutch ship brought 20 African slaves to the British colony of Jamestown, Virginia. During the years, rebellions did occur within the system. For example, historian Herbert Aptheker published a study called American Negro Slave Revolts, and has found records of “approximately two hundred and fifty revolts and conspiracies in the history of American Negro slavery.”

Despite the horror slavery reminds us about, Black Twitter has come up with really funny alternate reality moments in which slavery was a choice. Scroll down to check them out and upvote your favorites!
