Detroit hip hop station 105.1 The Bounce just doesn’t know what to do about infamous rapper Kanye West, a man who has made a genuine splash on the culture front over the last several weeks after coming out in support of President Donald Trump.
However, according to The Bounce, the problem isn’t that Kanye likes the president or that he posts pictures in a MAGA hat on his social media.
No, they have a problem with his comments on slavery. In fact, they so disliked what he had to say on the topic they banned him from the station.
So what was it, exactly, that West said that has everyone so up in arms?
“When you hear about slavery for 400 years—for 400 years! That sounds like a choice. Like, you was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally in prison.”
Two DJs, BiGG and Shay Shay, recently posted on Facebook that this particular mark was the straw that broke the camel’s back:
We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that “slavery was a choice.” We are over it. We don’t want to hear Kanye’s music, we don’t want to play Kanye on our show, we don’t want to talk about Kanye anymore. So we are taking a stand and we aren’t playing his music anymore; we just are refusing to give him a platform.
On Wednesday, when Shay Shay was asked how the DJs would deal with airplay of West, she said she was tired of listening to him. Shay Shay also commented on West asserting that Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were “too far in the past and not relatable.” She said, “As an educator, as someone who works with young kids … he has a huge platform, OK? I just think that’s reckless. I think when you have such a huge platform like that, to use it in a reckless way, I mean, you’re basically saying history is irrelevant.”
Bigg told The Detroit News that the response from fans of the station to West’s remarks was so massive that the station’s new program director, John Candelaria, approved the ban. Biggs stated, “In my 20-year radio career, this is one of the largest responses I’ve ever seen; the largest reaction on The Bounce, too. It’s very overwhelming right now. I’m just trying to keep up. Lots of people in support, but the people that aren’t are taking personal jabs. Weird.”
It seems, at least on the surface, that these folks are taking Kanye’s comment out of context and missing the point of what he’s saying.
While it can’t be said for sure, it certainly appears that what West is discussing here is the victim mentality that is so rampant in our culture this day and age, simply stating that so many folks are focused on making up for slavery — which was a horrendous evil — which happened so long ago that they’re allowing themselves to become perpetual victims that are stuck in that way of thinking.
It doesn’t appear that he’s trying to say that the slavery that happened hundreds of years ago was a choice by the victims of this vile practice, but that those who remain hung up on it today are choosing to be enslaved by defeat in their minds.
Then again, maybe he just made a goofy statement to get attention. Anything is possible.

Twitter Blacklists Investigative Journalist After CNN Exposé
Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.
The mainstream media really doesn’t like to lose. In fact, much of their thirst for power over their rivals is simply so that they can continue to bully us into watching. And with so many organizations completely aware of how this horrible system is set up, outlets with similar world views tend to look out for one another – particularly when it comes to attack from the other side of the media spectrum. Americans on Friday were beginning to accuse Twitter of doing just that. Critics accused Twitter Thursday of banning Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe from its platform over the right-wing guerrilla news outlet’s damning exposé of CNN. Project Veritas relaunched its #ExposeCNN campaign this week by sharing footage of CNN technical director Charles Chester revealing the liberal network’s dirty laundry. In the footage, Chester claimed that CNN’s “focus” during the 2020 election campaign was to “get rid of” President Trump, that the network hyped its coronavirus coverage for “gangbuster” ratings, and that it aims to “help” Black Lives Matter. On Thursday, O’Keefe’s Twitter account, which was sharing Project Veritas’ reporting, was permanently suspended over alleged use of “fake accounts.” “As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News. This would be akin to a publisher retweeting a post that one of their authors had written, advertising the book that they collaborated on. Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.
Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting
Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…
