Kanye West Gets ROASTED on Twitter For Dumb Slavery Comment

by at .  Updated at .

On top of espousing his love for Trump, sporting a MAGA hat, and claiming to have "dragon energy," Kanye West decided to also essentially blame black people for slavery.

It did not go over well. At all. And neither did Kanye's attempted explanation.

Since Kim Kardashian has insisted that this is not a mental health issue, and since mental health advocates are discouraging people from blaming mental illness for bad behavior, many are left to assume that Kanye is just ... bad.

Or at least suffering from the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

After this latest claim, that 400 years of slavery was somehow a choice that black people made, Black Twitter was all over it.

In real life, people know that slaves were separated from their families, forbidden to read or write, forced to abandon their religions, shackled, and often mutilated as punishment.

But, in order to satirize the absurdity of Kanye's claims, these hilarious tweets try to imagine a world where slavery somehow was a choice.

The results are much, much funnier than the very grim subject matter. Take a look:

1. Imagine clocking out of slavery

If slavery were a choice, many imagine that it would be similar to working today. Which can be less than fun, but definitely isn't like real slavery.

2. So THAT was the secret!

The number that she chose is not random. It of course refers to the date of the Civil War.

3. Whoops!

Whoops!
If only real life had been so civilized.

4. Some imagined how they'd choose masters

"Slavecare" is a hell of an idea. Oh no, we hope that the writers of HBO's trainwreck of a series "Confederate" don't see this.

5. One "job" title was clearly coveted

Even slaves have varying levels of status. That's a grim fact from history.

6. If it's a choice, they could have said "no"

If it's a choice, they could have said "no"
Again, if only the colonizers and slavers had been more civilized.
