His comments did not ggo unchallenged. TMZ staffer Van Latham spokee up after West questioned the room “Do you feel like I’m thinking free and feeling free?”

Lathan stood up and replied “I actually don’t think you’re thinking anything. While you are making music and being an artist and living a life that you’ve earned by being a genius, the rest of in society have to deal with these threats in our lives. We have to deal with the marginalization that has come from the 400 years of slavery that you said for our people was our choice.”
