Kim Kardashian has justified Kanye West’s slavery comment. The raper had earlier in May told TMZ Live that slavery is a choice.
This was on the next episode of her family’s hit reksitt TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kim has a convo with Jonathan Cheban and Simon Huck about her husband’s May 1 appearance on “TMZ Live”.

Then Kim said;
“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.
