Kanye West delivered a number of shocking diatribes while appearing on TMZ Live on Tuesday.

The first of these occurred early in the program when he was asked to respond to a statement made by Tha Dogg Pound rapper Daz Dillinger last week in which he said that he wanted members of the Crips to assault Kanye for referring to Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon as his 'brother.'

'I said wow, this is really like the Malcolm X movie. They are really going to send some black people out to me,' said Kanye.

He then went on to say: 'You can live through an a** whipping. Probably the idea is to beat sense into me. But when you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.'

'You were there for 400 years, and it is all of y'all? It is like we are mentally imprisoned. I like the word prison because slavery goes too direct to the idea of blacks. It is like slavery, holocaust. Holocaust, is Jews, and slavery is blacks.

'So prison is something that unites us as one race. Black and whites, one race. It is like we are one with the human race, we are human beings and stuff.'

Kanye tried to to move on at that point, but Harvey Levin brought the conversation back to the rapper's comment about slavery.

'Right now, we're choosing to be enslaved,' said Kanye, who spoke about a recent FaceTime conversation he had with Ibrahim 'Ebro' Darden and conservative commentator Candice Owens.

He said that because Owens shut Ebro down during a conversation they had, Ebro refused to allow Owens on his show.

'So you're stiffling her voice,' said Kanye.

'You're choosing to enslave people's minds. You're choosing to not let the truth be free.'

The talk then shifted to Kanye's support of Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon, for which the rapper believes he was unfairly attacked based on the fact that he is a black man.

'The mob tries to tell you what to think. The mob tries to make all blacks be Democrats for food stamps and stuff. It is the mob,' declared Kanye.

On the subject of Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon however, Kanye did explain that politics has little to do with his affinity for the real-estate-scion-turned-commander-in-chief.

'My righteous point of view is freedom of thought. I don't have extremely strong political opinions. You can talk to John Legend if you want opinions,' said Kanye.

'I have never been into politics. I just love Trump. That is my boy.'

Kanye then pointed out that a number of rappers felt the same way before Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon took office.

'It is like the media and the liberals and the echo chamber and all that is having the most soar loss of all time,' explained Kanye.

'We are going to keep putting out -- it is like torture porn. We are going to keep showing you negative, negative, negative, negative.'

He then went on to reveal that while watching the funeral for former first lady Barbara Bush and seeing George W. Bush push his father's wheelchair into the church he wanted to apologize for saying that the former leader 'did not care about black people.'

Obama meanwhile was referred to as an 'opioid' who 'pacified the pain' of the country by Kanye.

Obama should’ve done that. He’s black.

Before I move forward, let me say that I endorse what Ben has said in answer to your question, eds.

The idea of America is as a melting pot...we are taught that in grade school.  But your question assumes the legitimacy of separate but equal, the exact opposite of the melting pot.  You assume that blacks should be separate, and that better blacks will rise to become better teachers, and raise the quality of black education.  Huh...no melting pot?  We were always taught there was a melting pot.  The blacks apparently have to do it all on their own?

Where the melting pot exists, is that the better black teachers get 'melted' into the system, and away for the black kids that your 'separate but equal' apartheid assumes.  That's what Ben is saying.  Not only are the blacks, as students, ordinarily given the worse schools, but even if one of them becomes great, he is snatched away and plucked up by the better white schools...and the white power structure congratulates itself, saying: 'Aren't we wonderful giving this high-achieving black person the opportunity we give him??!  We'll take him away and give him to our schools.'

Where's the melting pot that was given to the Dutch, the Germans, the Irish, the Italians?  Why aren't blacks socially mobile like the English, Scots, Swedes, Nords, and in short, all the white-skinned folks who came to this country in their time?  Blacks were here before any of them.  The fundamental reason is, America is a racist nation.  It's in the institutions, the people, the ideas and the culture of America.

Oh, and you ask why Obama didn't change the system?  Listen to Ben.  He listed the things the president can't do...one of them is to legislate.  Congress writes the laws.  Where where you when I said, the white, Republican Congress opposed Obama every step of the way?

In fact, the Legislature had a doctrine called the Boehner/McConnell Doctrine I used to talk about before Speaker Boehner retired, whereby the Republican dominated Congress would do everything they could to make America fail as long as a black man was in the White House.  Remember the war bill on Syria that Obama sent up to the Hill in 2015, so that the US would be enabled to go in and help the Syrian refugees?  It never made it to the floor of the House, did it?  See how institutional racism works?  Didge still believes that Obama was at fault. Only Congress can declare a war.
