Earlier in the year, Kanye caused all of this controversy, per usual, by saying 400 years of slavery was a choice comments during an interview with TMZ.
In an interview with the New York Times, Kanye says the following:
"I said the idea of sitting in something for 400 years sounds - sounds - like a choice to me, I never said it's a choice.
I never said slavery itself - like being shackled in chains - was a choice.
That's why I went from slave to 400 years of mental prison to this and that. If you look at the clip, you see the way my mind works."
In other words, what he said may have been misconstrued. Thoughts?
