Kanye West appears smarter than anyone thinks by correctly saying Blacks swapped one slavery for another via the 13th Amendment

One of the more interesting dichotomies of human behavior is that when someone is 'awakened' from a long held belief that in the end was false, they tend to pursue the truth with extreme fervor.  A great example of this often occurs when someone finds religion after years or decades of debauchery, and where after ending this lifestyle they tend to dedicate their lives fully towards the new found beliefs they now accept as truth.

Since the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States there are few individuals who have changed more from their old beliefs than Kanye West.  And in the wake of his Saturday Night Live appearance on Sept. 29, he dropped an interesting bombshell that has primarily been ignored by the mainstream.

US rapper Kanye West, fresh from his Saturday Night Live (SNL) controversy, has stirred yet another one, suggesting in an cryptic post that the amendment that abolished slavery is itself "slavery in disguise" and should be nixed. 
The recording artist, known as one of the few A-list celebrities to rally behind US President Donald Trump, has caused much bewilderment Sunday, sparking a guessing game among his fans when he suggested that it's time to abolish the 13th amendment.

What Kanye and a number of legal scholars over the years have correctly determined from the language of the 13th Amendment is that slavery was abolished in private and state ownership only, but it was not abolished in the hands of Federal officials and institutions.  In fact even today more than 2.5 million Americans, including large portions of the black and hispanic communities, are enslaved under the Federal interpretation of the 13th Amendment where instead they use the legal term of incarceration instead of slavery.
The 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution did not end slavery. In fact, it is the first time the word "slavery" was ever mentioned in the Constitution and it is in this amendment where it is not abolished once and for all as we were taught, but given the constitutional protection that has maintained the practice of American slavery in various forms to this very day. 
It is why, right now, the largest prison strike in American history is about to enter its third week — the men and women inside of those prisons are effectively slaves. Their free or nearly free labor represents, according to Alice Speri, "a $2 billion a year industry that employs nearly 900,000 prisoners while paying them a few cents an hour in some states, and nothing at all in others. 
"In addition to work for private companies, prisoners also cook, clean, and work on maintenance and construction in the prisons themselves — forcing officials to pay staff to carry out those tasks in response to work stoppages. 'They cannot run these facilities without us,' organizers wrote ahead of the strike. 'We will not only demand the end to prison slavery, we will end it ourselves by ceasing to be slaves.'

The sad fact of the matter is that slavery has been around in nearly every culture, and on every continent for over 5000 years, and it has more to do with economics than it does with control over another human being.  But sadly, since most Americans today are unbearably uneducated in history, civics, and economics as seen by some of Hollywood's reactions to Kanye West's assertions last weekend, in the end it should not be surprising that an entrepreneur and businessman who has experienced a 'coming to Jesus moment' after leaving the Democratic Plantation would realize the truth that slavery in America was never truly abolished, and that it was simply shifted from one ownership group to another.
