(AllHipHop News) #IfSlaveryWasAChoice is currently the #1 trending topic on Twitter. The online jokes are a response to Kanye West's ahistorical take that black people chose to be chattel slaves in America.
Meek wrote in the photo's caption:
Kanye attempted to clear up his comments by posting on Twitter:
to make myself clear. Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved. They cut out our tongues so we couldn't communicate to each other. I will not allow my tongue to be cut
The artwork posted on Meek Mill's Instagram page was created by the New Jersey-based creative collective known as The Super Poor Kids.
