Kanye West can’t stop saying dumb things when it comes to history and race relations. On Tuesday, he stepped out of his comfy Calabasas home to speak to the good folks at TMZ and attempt to educate them on slavery.

Kanye’s friends have tried to put him on game before. You may recall, Charlemagne, John Legend and Talib Kweli already schooled Kanye on the Republican party. Now he’s gotten a piece of Van Lathan’s mind.


Here’s an extended clip of what happened after.
