Twitter Reacts To Kanye West Slavery Comments At Howard

Kanye West is quite known for his insensitive remarks and just yesterday he made another blunder while speaking at Howard University.

Howard is an historically Black University. Ye made the controversial statements about Black people and slavery, that many are not cool with it.

This isn’t his first time and might not be the last as a trait exhibited over time is one’s personality.

Kanye went viral in 2018, when he told TMZ that he believed that Black people “chose” to be enslaved by Europeans.

Kanye said, if Black people didn’t “want” to be enslaved, it wouldn’t have lasted 400 years. While the maltreatment of Blacks in America lasted for hundreds of  years (and still today), legalized slavery in the United Stated lasted about 200 years.

That’s the same amount of time that jews were enslaved in Egypt.

Kanye West doubled down his claims during his speech at Howard homecoming.

Greg Carr, an associate professor at Howard’s Department of Afro-American Studies, asked his followers to send Kanye to the library after the performance.

“I have some books for him,” he wrote, followed by the hashtag #TheMiseducationOfTheNegro.
