VAN LATHAN'S REBUTTAL TO KANYE WEST

Kanye West stated that the 400 years that our ancestors where slaves; it was a choice. Now Van Lathan offered a powerful rebuttal. This what he had to say "I actually don't think you're thinking anything."
"I think what you are doing is actually the absence of thought." After validation, he goes on further to say "We have to deal with the marginalization that has come from the 400 years of slavery that you said, for our people was a choice."

What do you think? How do you feel about it?
