Excerpt:

Kanye, you’re entitled to your opionion, you’re entitled to whatever you want, but there is fact and real life consequence behind everything that you just said and while you are making music and being an artist and living the life that you’ve earned by being a genius, the rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives. We have to deal with the marginalization that has come with the 400 years of slavery that you said, for our people, was a choice.
