That's a form of slavery - mental slavery. We got a right to our opinions, right?

"That's the Republican Party that freed the slaves", West insisted.

As the Deseret News reports, West emerged in Salt Lake City on October 5 to host a Saturday edition of his popular church-inspired gatherins, which coincided with Mormon stronghold's 189th Semiannual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


West performed his weekly Sunday Service in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he attracted between 7,000 and 10,000 people, according to Desert News.

West made similar comments during a now-infamous TMZ interview in which he argued that slavery was a "choice". "When you hear about slavery for 400 years: For 400 years, that sounds like choice", he said. 'Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all? It's like we're mentally in prison. "I like the word "prison" because slavery goes too direct to the idea of blacks", he added. Holocaust, Jews. Slavery is blacks. He only sang "Jesus Walks", one of his biggest hits, during the service, and used the rest of his time to preach on topics such as social media and race. During one of his Sunday Service sessions in Utah, West spoke to the crowd about the stigma of being a black Republican. "We're the human race". It's been just over one year since West made headlines by delivering an impassioned speech in support of Trump during the September 29, 2018 Season 44 premiere of Saturday Night Live.

"All these mind controllers, the media, all of these mind controllers".


Though West has stayed relatively mum on politics this year, his comments about backing Trump as a black man echo his most recent tweet, dating all the way back to January 1.

He also talked politics and what he called the dangers of social media. People expect it because they want to think better of you.

"Social media is created to make you think slower", he continued.
