When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years? That sounds like a choice.” — Kanye West, yesterday on TMZ.

 It is clear that @kanyewest is being sensational for the sake of publicity. I could care less about that. But for you to use the murder and holocaust of slavery for your own self aggrandizement is at the core of your vile appeasement of white supremacists.

@WendellPierce

You glorify those that murdered our mothers & fathers,raped our women, & swelled our numbers with bastards. You @kanyewest embrace those who inhumanly experimented on our bodies to watch the ravage of death for decades in Tuskegee.

 You lift up those that taught us a religion that they disgraced. And in the name of Jesus bought, sold,tortured and killed in the name of God. Slavery wasn’t a choice, it was a crime against humanity without a denouement of Justice.

You @kanyewest need to visit the new memorial of the lynching victims, Whitney Plantation of Louisiana, Goreé Island, the Slavery museum of Liverpool and learn about the suffering of this nightmare of human history.

 The visit the grave of Aristile Harris, sold as a nigger and a half with his mother, as he lost the rest of his brothers, sisters, and father to the darkness of separation, never to see them again. He was my great grandfather who created a family he lost to slavery.

 Apologize to his spirit and the souls of all our ancestors who were denied the life of privilege you lead. When that is done, I pray the world chooses to forget you and the trite, monotony you call music.
