Tbh I don’t even know how to pronounce Kanye’s name. If asked to name one of his songs I’d be at a loss but am quite sure I’ve heard his music. I should be embarrassed to admit but when I saw the picture of him and Trump at the Trump Tower, he looked familiar, but I had no clue who he was until I read his name and thought, what a sellout. Since then I shook my head in disgust when I read his slavery is a choice comment. Thought nothing of Kanye West until last week when his social media presence intersected mine.

The following reblog from Jean Gasho’s blog.  It is a kinder and gentler interpretation of Kanye ’s comment as well as a glimpse into African history.
