Kim Kardashian Justifies Kanye’s Slavery Comment

Reality TV star, Kim Kardashian in an attempt to defend her husband, Kanye West’s comments earlier in May when he told TMZ Live that slavery is a choice.

On the next episode of her family’s hit reksitt TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she has a convo with Jonathan Cheban and Simon Huck about her husband’s May 1 appearance on “TMZ Live”.

Huck says “the way they edited that clip”.

Then there’s Kim saying,

“If you listen to what he said, he said, ‘Slavery was 400 years? If it’s gonna be another 400 years, that sounds like a choice to me.’ He didn’t say, ‘Slavery is a choice.'”

The rapper who has never been shy about expressing himself had said,

“You hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years? That sounds like a choice”.

West elaborated little on his statement but appeared to be drawing a parallel to how he is presumed to hold certain views as an African American artist.

“We’re mentally in prison. I like the word ‘prison’ because slavery is too direct to the idea of blacks. Like Holocaust is Jews, slavery is blacks,” West said.
