G Herbo Defends Kanye’s Slavery Comment

[Kanye] told me – and it made perfect sense, ‘I wasn’t saying slavery was a choice like we choose to be in slavery. But slavery was a choice to me, to Nat Turner, to Harriet Tubman.’ That’s what he said. To Nat Turner, slavery was a choice. To Harriet Tubman, slavery was a choice. Because I have the choice to run, I have the choice to fight. That’s what he was saying, but he didn’t express it that way.

G Herbo thinks that Kanye West means well and has good intentions, but his delivery of his messages aren’t clear at times. He revealed some information about his personal dealings with Kanye with Peter Rosenberg on his “Open Late” talk show.

I wasn’t pleased because I didn’t understand the direction he was going in. I’m not saying I understand what he’s doing now, but just being around Kanye – I’ve been around him more than once – but being around him in settings like this, where you can really talk to him, I kind of feel like he got good intentions. Not saying he’s doing it the right way, but he got good intentions,
