Rapper Kanye West has attempted to backtrack from his live-video remark Tuesday that African-American slavery was "a choice" made by the enslaved. West, 40, said on the online program "TMZ Live," "When you hear about slavery for 400 years — for 400 years? That sound like a choice. Like, it was there for 400 years and it's all y'all." The comment brought widespread renunciation, including from filmmakers Spike Lee and Ava DuVernay, civil-rights activist DeRay Mckesson, scholar and essayist Roxane/ Gay, actor-producer Wendell Pierce, musician will.i.am and others. "To make myself clear. Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will," West said in one of a series of tweets afterward. "My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved." This prompted responses that included, "There were many, many revolts but they were physically prevented by militarized force." … [Read more...] about Kanye West responds to slavery remarks criticism
By ROBERT ROMANO Whatever you do, don’t put on a Make America Great Again hat. Just ask Kanye West. After the rap star tweeted something supporting President Donald Trump — insofar as it was not anti-Trump — his whole world changed.

And we have the right to independent thought.” It didn’t matter that in that same minute, he also tweeted, “I love Hillary too” or that right before, he had prefaced the tweet by stating, “Free thinkers don’t fear retaliation for your thoughts. The traditional thinkers are only using thoughts and words but they are in a mental prison. You are free. You’ve already won. Feel energized. Move in love not fear. Be afraid of … [Read more...] about DID KANYE WEST JUST SINGLE-HANDEDLY DEFEAT THE THOUGHT POLICE BY TELLING THE WORLD HE LOVES PRESIDENT TRUMP?
Travis Moor, frontman for Denver indie-rock quartet the Hunger Artist, was born to a seventeen-year-old mother. Growing up, he switched elementary schools often, struggling to find people to relate to. “It was pretty strange,” says Moor. “Always being the new brown kid at school, I never fit in. It was really tough making friends. It very much made it hard to feel at home, ever.”Moor, who has Hispanic and Native American ancestry, turned to music for solace. He sang with a school choir at age five, played clarinet in band class in elementary school, and learned to play guitar at twelve. “Everybody’s got their own struggles that they have to face,” says Moor. “Most of the struggles that I’ve had to face have been overcoming the cultural stereotypes that are ever-pervasive, whether or not anybody realizes it — even overcoming them myself, not just in other people’s eyes. Music has definitely been cathartic. … Writing … [Read more...] about The Hunger Artist Will Sell Toilet Plungers With Kanye West’s Face on Them
