Kanye West is back at in the media again, this time retracting the statements he made about slavery a couple of months ago when he said it was a “choice.” West again tried to explain what he meant by his “non-historical opinion” in an interview on Chicago’s 107.5 WCGI radio station. He also apologized for the hurt and anger his comments may have caused the public.

“It wasn’t the actual comment. I said “400 years, it sounds like a choice — to me. To Kanye West. Not being a historian … to me, when I hear about an entire group of powerful people being held captive for 400 years it

The thing about being called crazy, the biggest stigma that has to be broken is that you instantly get written off. But you might be the only one who knows what they’re talking about. Also what I wanna say to everyone listening right now—I have never really approached or addressed the slavery comment fully. And it’s not something for me to overly intellectualize. This is something about the fact that it hurt people’s feelings and the way that I presented that piece of information. I could present in a way more calm way, but I was ramped up. And I apologize. That happens sometimes when people are—I’m not blaming mental health, but I’m explaining mental health.

 

Kanye continued on.

I don’t know if I properly apologized for how the slavery comment made people feel. I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment, and I’m sorry for people that felt let down by that moment. And I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to talk to you about the way I was thinking and what I was going through.

sounds like a choice to the spirit of Kanye West. Which, I think is aligned with the spirit of Harriet Tubman. Which I think is aligned with the spirit of Nat Turner. In my non-historical opinion, I feel that these are examples of people from the past who felt similar to that. Even if it was worded incorrectly in the white man’s tongue. Maybe I could have danced or I could have spoken Swahili — because even the fact that we’re having to have this conversation in English is a form of slavery. It’s not even our language, bro.”

He also addressed not answering Jimmy Kimmel’s question about whether Donald Trump cares about Black people; and then explained what he means to America.

“I feel that he cares about the way black people feel about him, and he would like for black people to like him like they did when he was cool in the rap songs and all this. And he will do the things that are necessary to make that happen because he’s got an ego like all the rest of us, and he wants to be the greatest president, and he knows that he can’t be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community. So it’s something he’s gonna work towards, but we’re gonna have to speak to him.”

“In my opinion, politicians are politicians. It’s not one that’s particularly better than the other. I understand on Black people — since we wanna speak as separation because we’re actually one race. The human race. Race was a man-made construct that was invented…understand that we had eight years where we loved the idea of a Black president. Now it seems like we took a step backwards to where we only saw white presidents our entire life. It’s to where we’d rather have a female president than to see another white man become president again — I understand and I feel that — I just don’t agree with it. 

Let’s act like America is our girlfriend for a second. Trump being in office is like…if you broke up with your girlfriend and she fell out with her girlfriend, and you get on the phone with her and she lets you know everything your girlfriend has been doing the whole time.

Like the detention centers, that’s been happening through a lot of different presidential eras. Now we’re seeing it. I’m a very transparent person. I like transparency. I like exposure. I wanna be exposed to the information so I can make my decisions. And I knew that this rogue personality was gonna allow me to see and understand — and allow my brothers to understand — what we were dealing with. All the marches, people fighting, people standing up, people having conversations about politics our well being — i knew this was gonna happen if he got into office….

That’s the whole funny thing, you talk about “Get Out,” ‘woke,’ and the flash of light or something. [Trump’s] a flash of light to us an entire community to see things we weren’t seeing when Obama was in office — that were still happening. It’s like we as a collective wasn’t woke. Now everybody’s woke.”

“The thing is, I support everyone. I am in support. I support Bernie Sanders. I love Bernie Sanders. I support Hillary. I love Hillary. I support Obama. I cried when he one. My mom was passed, I said ‘Mama, we did it.’”

Kanye may have retracted–in his own way–his comments on slavery, but the damage has been done. His unrepentant alliance and stance with Trump still have him canceled in our eyes. Sorry Mr. West there is still no place for you at anyone’s cookout.

Too Much? Wendy Williams Advises RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice to Leave Her Husband!

Wendy Williams may have lost her marriage, but she has not lost her opinions, especially when it comes to The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple, Teresa and Joe Giudice! As you may already know the couple has faced their fair share of problems over the last few years with both being incarcerated and now Joe faces deportation after learning he has never been an American citizen.  Many would think Wendy would encourage her to stand by her man, but the talk show host wants Teresa to prepare to move on with her life without Joe.

“If I were Teresa, I wouldn’t even want him home at this point,” she said, adding that she hopes Teresa remains on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. “I would not have him living in my house.”

And when it comes to the couple’s four daughters, Williams said they’re probably better off if their parents are happy.

“I am all about a family staying together,” she said. “But families don’t stay together because of the kids. In fact, sometimes it’s worse for the kids.”

It was revealed on Thursday that Joe is now one step closer to deportation as his appeal against the decision to deport him was denied.

“We are extremely disappointed that the Board of Immigration Appeals has denied Mr. Giudice’s appeal,” James J. Leonard Jr., the Giudice family attorney, told PEOPLE in a statement. “We have filed a stay with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and will continue to fight to keep Mr. Giudice in the United States, the only country he knows, and reunite him with his wife and four daughters.”

Wendy’s comments may be hitting a little too close to home as she is dealing with her pending divorce from her husband of over 20 years, Kevin Hunter. We would like to see Joe be granted some clemency, at least for his four daughters’ sake. On Wendy’s end she is at least keeping it “business as usual;” still hosting her daytime talk show and even making light of her divorce by referring to herself as a “single woman.”

Keith Raniere accuses Allison Mack of helping recruit sex slaves

Smallville actress Allison Mack has pleaded guilty to charges related to her involvement with a controversial self-help group described as having a secret society of “masters” and sexually subservient “slaves” within it, PEOPLE confirms.A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York tells PEOPLE that Mack was scheduled to appear in court at 11:30 a.m. to plead guilty.

The spokesman says she is pleading guilty to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering.

Prosecutors have accused her of recruiting sex slaves for Keith Raniere, who co-founded the controversial self-help group Nxivm and its subgroup, DOS, described as an all-female secret society in which women allegedly were forced to be sexually subservient to Raniere.

On Monday, Mack, 36, appeared in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, where jury selection in her trial was set to begin.

Best known for her years-long role as a young Superman’s friend, Chloe Sullivan, on The WB’s Smallville, Mack was charged last spring with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy.
Allison faces a minimum sentence of fifteen years if convicted on all charges. We have to say we are still in shock over everything she has been involved in. This proves that all sex traffickers are not men, and that no one is truly as they seem. What do you guys think of Allison and her involvement in this scandal?

World governments are riddled with conspiracy theories like water is wet. However, one conspiracy theory is really taking flight following the tragic murder of rapper, Nipsey Hussle. As you know, he was killed yesterday outside of his Crenshaw-located Marathon Clothing Store, from multiple gun shots. Nipsey announced last year he was working on a documentary about Alfredo Bowman, better known as “Dr. Sebi,” an herbalist and self-proclaimed healer who claimed to have cured illnesses like HIV/AIDS through holistic means.

nipsey hussle dead h

He died shortly thereafter from pneumonia, and many believe global pharmaceutical companies and world governments wanting to profit off the money made from treating diseases instead of curing them outright. Nipsey’s documentary was allegedly suppose to connect his untimely demise to these aforementioned entities. Fans believe not only did he discover Dr. Sebi’s killers, but that he indeed had discovered how to heal other holistically. This leads many to believe this information cost Nipsey his life.

This is not the first time a celebrity death has been conspired and linked to Dr. Sebi. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC also made the same claims about his healing powers and curing of HIV/AIDS in the latter years of her life and subsequently was killed in a tragic car accident. See a few trending fan reactions and memes below:

There were 3 victims, Nipsey was shot 6 times and I’m sure someone more studied in Numerology can point out a lot more🙏🏾they are going to try to spin this narrative and make it seem like this was gang related and it’s just another sad case of “black” on “black” crime and how we need to turn in our guns🤔some of us will believe it but just know there are many of us waking up from a long slumber and just know, we know. We don’t have to announce everything that will come as a result of this assassination neither but please understand we will MOVE differently 🙏🏾 Rest Up King, we got you🌟🌟🌟#drsebi #nipseyhussle #movedifferent
