‘Kunta Kinte’ Roots Actor, LeVar Burton, Sounds Off About Kanye’s Slave Antics & It Ain’t Pretty
As we all we familiar by now, Kanye West has been on a pro-Trump tirade and “sl*very was a choice” rant for the past days. As a outcome, he’s been catching hell from everybody and their mommas, clearly so. This time, “Roots” actor, LeVar Burton a.k.a. “Kunta Kinte” a.k.a.
the “Reading Rainbow” host, has a few choice words for Kanye and his coon sla’v’e comments. LeVar reacted to Kanye’s comments from his TMZ interview, in which ‘Ye made the ignorant statement: “When you learn about sl’av’ery for 400 years. For 400 years?
That sounds like a choice. You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all. It’s like we’re mentally j*iled.” Vox.com also marked out the various contradictory statements Kanye made about Harriet Tubman, in the midst of defe’nding his pro-Trump and sla’very statements:
West tweeted, “I freed a 1000 sl’av’es. I could have freed a 1000 more if just they knew they were s’la’ves,” implying that Tubman too believed many sl’ave’s were solely making the plan to stay in bondage. Just a day after in a confusing interview,
West said, radio personality Charlamagne Tha God that he began using the cryp’tocurrency Bitcoin “when I saw Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. It’s like when you see all the sla’ve films, it’s like why you gotta keep reminding us about sla’v’ery?
Why don’t you put Michael Jordan on the $20 bill?” Tubman had gone in the wink of an eye from West’s model of a sla’ve who “chose freedom” to a symbol of our nation’s obsession with “reminding us” of our pas times of sl’av’ery. Currently, LeVar Burton,
has talked about, in an interview with KTLA 5 News, to show not just that he thinks ‘Ye’s statements are “stupid,” but also that he’s deeply wo’rried about his chemical balance: LeVar Burton: “Where do you began with Kanye? You know what?
I basically believe that this young man has brain chemistry issues and that he is in a hypo-manic phase. I’m not a psy’chologist, I’m not a psychiatrist, but I’ve seen this nature and I familiar with it fairly intimately well. I just wonder that somebody in Kanye’scamp -if there is somebody in Kanye’s camp- needs to put their arms around him and have him sit the hell down for 5 minutes, until his brain chemistry levels out, because he’s NOT helping himself currently.
