Kanye says Slavery after 400 years 'is like a Choice=The Bible Says he's right?

Kanye West's "sounds like a choice" statement in reference to Slavery has roiled many Blacks not just in America, but across the world.  There is some truth to what he said about "Choice."  Here's why.


Romans 11 King James Version (KJV)

11 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,
Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompence unto them:
10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.
11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Elmore Bolling defied the odds against black men and built several successful businesses during the harsh era of Jim Crow segregation in the South. He had more money than a lot of whites, which his descendants believe was all it took to get him lynched in 1947.
He was shot to death by a white neighbor, according to news accounts at the time, and the shooter was never prosecuted.
But Bolling's name is now listed among thousands on a new memorial for victims of hate-inspired lynchings that terrorized generations of U.S. blacks. Daughter Josephine Bolling McCall is anxious to see the monument, located about 20 miles from where her father was killed in rural Lowndes County.
The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, opening Thursday, is a project of the nonprofit Equal Justice Initiative, a legal advocacy group in Montgomery. The organization says the combined museum and memorial will be the nation's first site to document racial inequality in America from slavery through Jim Crow to the issues of today.
"In the American South, we don't talk about slavery. We don't have monuments and memorials that confront the legacy of lynching. We haven't really confronted the difficulties of segregation. And because of that, I think we are still burdened by that history," said EJI executive director Bryan Stevenson.
The site includes a memorial to the victims of 4,400 "terror lynchings" of black people in 800 U.S. counties from 1877 through 1950. All but about 300 were in the South, and prosecutions were rare in any of the cases. Stevenson said they emphasized the lynching era because he believes it's an aspect of the nation's racial history that's discussed the least.
"Most people In this country can't name a single African-American who was lynched between 1877 and 1950 even though thousands of African Americans were subjected to this violence," Stevenson said.
The organization said a common theme ran through the slayings, which it differentiates from extrajudicial killings in places that simply lacked courts: A desire to impose fear on minorities and maintain strict white control. Some lynchings drew huge crowds and were even photographed, yet authorities routinely ruled they were committed by "persons unknown."
McCall, 75, said her father's killing still hangs over her family. The memorial could help heal individual families and the nation by acknowledging the painful legacy of racial murders, she said.
"It's important that the people to whom the injustices have been given are actually being recognized and at least some measure — some measure — of relief is sought through discussion," said McCall.
Combined, the memorial and an accompanying museum a few miles away at the Equal Justice Initiative headquarters tell a story spanning slavery, racial segregation, violence and today's era of swollen prison populations. With nearly 7 million people behind bars or on parole or probation nationwide - a disproportionate number of them minorities - the NAACP says blacks are incarcerated at a rate five times that of whites.
E.M. Beck, who studied lynching for 30 years and has written books on the subject, said the memorial might actually understate the scope of lynching even though it lists thousands of victims.
"I think it's an underestimate because the number and amount of violence in early Reconstruction in the 1870s will probably never be known. There was just an incredible amount of violence taking place during that period of time," said Beck, sociology professor emeritus at the University of Georgia.
The memorial's design evokes the image of a racist hanging, featuring scores of dark metal columns suspended in the air from above. The rectangular structures, some of which lie flat on the ground and resemble graves, include the names of counties where lynchings occurred, plus dates and the names of the victims. The goal is for individual counties to claim the columns on the ground and erect their own memorials.
Not all lynchings were by hanging. The Equal Justice Initiative says it scoured old newspapers, archives and court documents to find the stories of victims who were gunned down, drowned, beaten and burned alive. The monument is a memorial to all of them, with room for names to be added as additional victims are identified.
The monument's April 26 opening will be marked by a two-day summit focusing on racial and social justice, to be followed by an April 27 concert featuring top acts including Common, Usher, the Dave Matthews Band and The Roots.
McCall plans to view the memorial with her five living siblings. She says they suffered more than she did, since she was only 5 when their father was slain.
A newspaper account from the time said the 39-year-old Bolling, who owned a store and trucking company and farmed, was shot seven times on a road near his store by a white man, Clarke Luckie, who claimed Bolling had insulted his wife during a phone call.
McCall, who researched the slaying extensively for a book about her father, said it's more likely that Luckie, a stockyard employee, resented her father, who had thousands of dollars in the bank, three tractor-trailer rigs and employed about 40 people.
"He was jealous and he filled him with bullets," she said.
Luckie was arrested, but a grand jury issued no indictment and no one was ever prosecuted. McCall believes the white people who controlled the county at the time purposely covered for the killer, who died decades ago.
One of Alabama's oldest black congregations, Old Ship A.M.E. Zion Church, sits across the street from the memorial. Its pastor plans to offer prayer and conversation to help visitors who are shaken by the experience of visiting the site.
Church members have mixed feelings about the memorial, she said. They want to acknowledge and honor the past, McFadden said, but some are wondering how they'll personally react to visiting the memorial the first time.
"It's something that needs to be talked about, that people need to explore. But it's also something that has the potential to shake people to the core," said Rev. Kathy Thomas McFadden.

Watch police contact two Native American boys taking a campus tour of CSU. A parent on the tour called police when the brothers joined the tour late. Courtesy of CSU campus police, The Coloradoan
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — After a parent on a campus tour of Colorado State University called police to express concern about two Native American students who joined the tour, the university on Friday released body camera footage and the audio of the call to police. 
The boys' mother said she believes her sons were the victims of racial profiling.
Thomas Kanewakeron Gray, 19, and his brother Lloyd Skanahwati Gray, 17, had driven to CSU from New Mexico. Their trip to their "dream" university was interrupted when a parent called campus police because she was nervous when the brothers joined the tour, according to a letter sent out by CSU.
Listen to the audio from the woman's call here: 
The caller, whom campus police did not identify, was joined by her son and her husband on the tour. She called dispatch to express concern after the two young men joined the tour late.
They were acting strangely, she told the dispatcher. They wouldn’t share their names, and the woman said she believed they weren’t being honest when she asked what they wanted to study. She told dispatch their clothing had dark symbols on it.
“One of them had his left hand in his oversized sweatshirt the whole time,” the woman said. “I’m probably being completely paranoid with everything that’s happened.”
The dispatcher asked if they were white males.
“I think they’re Hispanic,” the woman said. “One said he’s from Mexico.”
When campus police arrived, they approached the young men and checked their pockets.
Police explained to them that someone on the tour had called police after the pair arrived late and did not respond to questions. The two confirmed they were late and explained their silence as simply being shy. 
Police asked to see their IDs. Only one of the teens had his handy, and he showed it to an officer. They pair offered to show a confirmation email from CSU, and police waited while one of the teens' produced it, after struggling for a WiFi connection.
“Sorry to take you away from the group,” one officer said. “Have a good rest of your day.”
When Officer Lance Hoisington asked why they declined to give their names, the boys said they were shy, according to the police report and body cam footage.
According to the report, Hoisington explained that if the two would have given their names when asked and explained why they were late, no one would have found them to be suspicious.
Dispatch later forwarded Hoisington a message from the boys’ mother in which she said she was upset and felt her boys were being racially profiled, according to the report.
“I explained to her that law enforcement is obligated to follow up on any call that we receive and that the reporting party was suspicious because of the boys’ actions alone, Hoisington wrote in the report.
The encounter reminded Lorraine Kahneratokwas Gray, the boys’ mother, of several national instances where police officers shot and killed unarmed African-American men, she wrote in a Facebook post.
Gray told the AP she believes her sons were victims of racial profiling and she feared for their safety after learning about the encounter.
When the boys called to tell her what happened, she told them to "leave immediately," according to the post. "I felt they had been the victim of racism and that they weren’t safe there."
“I am lucky my sons are both alive,” Gray wrote.
Colorado State said Friday it is inviting the brothers back to the school and will pick up the tab for them and their family.
Mike Hooker, spokesman for the university, wrote in an email to the Coloradoan that CSU plans to improve how it manages campus tours. 
The brothers’ ordeal marks the latest in a series of incidences nationwide spotlighting treatment minorities often face in everyday circumstances, including the arrest of two black men at a Starbucks in Philadelphia who were handcuffed and taken to jail after a worker said they had refused to buy anything or leave.

Don't get so comfortable in your situation- whatever it is!  That you lose your whatever you think you have good under massa!

You have become so comfortable in your: slavery and/or prosperity/and or righteousness that you will urn yourselves in when Massa says, "Come on the Camp is good for you.  We have Food, Free Internet and computers, and a job for you to do so you can make some money to send home.  We have a few companies here you can choose from such as: FOXCONN, Mattel Toys, Playboy Brothels, and more.  Come to the FEMA camp enjoy and explore."

They have to give you the illusion when you're at the camp that "Slavery was a Choice."  Though as I have shown you in the Bible, Slavery was well....a choice- due to the behavior of the Israelites.

Since, it is a choice.  Devils will say, "Well, that's your choice!  That Racist Marine or Army troop beating on you raping on you; can't be that bad to you, right?  You wanted to come here right?"


BAKARI AND THE SERBS: ‘Woke Me Up To The Jews (Negers)’: Marine FEMA Camp Police Officer Leads White Supremacist Group

An active duty U.S. Marine was found to have belonged to a white supremacist group that took part in last summer’s deadly Charlottesville, VA riot, ProPublica reported.
Vasillios Pistolis, 18, who posted online under the name VasillistheGreek, was very proud of his work in Charlottesville— which killed three people and left dozens injured. Pistolis was a member of Atomwaffen Division, a secretive neo-Nazi organization whose members say they are preparing for a coming race war. The group espouses the overthrow of the U.S. government through acts of political violence.
“Today cracked 3 skulls open with virtually no damage to myself,” he reportedly posted on Aug. 12, 2017.
Leading up to the Unite the Right Rally, Pistolis was active in online chats, posting that he was prepared to kill someone “if shit goes down.”
Following the bloody weekend, Pistolis returned to work— as a U.S. Marine stationed in North Carolina.
Pistolis is not alone in simultaneously working to both serve his country, and to violently destroy it. Joshua Beckett, 26, who trained Atomwaffen members in firearms last fall, reportedly served in the Army from 2011 to 2015. Online, Beckett said that he worked as a combat engineer while in the army, making him a demolitions expert.
In chat room discussions, Beckett encouraged other Atomwaffen members to enlist in the military, so as to become skilled in the use of weaponry, and then turn their knowledge against the U.S. government, which he believed to be controlled by a secret cabal of Jews.
“The army itself woke me up to race and the war woke me up to the Jews,” Beckett wrote.
A spokesman for the Marine Corps, Major Brian Block, told ProPublica that the corps would be looking into Pistolis and would likely open a formal probe into his actions regarding Charlottesville.
“There is no place for racial hatred or extremism in the Marine Corps,” Block said. “Bigotry and racial extremism run contrary to our core values.”
