Kanye West says stop talking about slavery, we should put Michael Jordan on the $20 bill instead of Harriet Tubman, and that Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. are "not relatable." pic.twitter.com/peLlNp996T

General lesson we can take from Donald Trump and Kanye West: If someone repeatedly tells you they're the greatest in the world, there's a good chance they're just self-promoting jackasses.

Someone really needs to stop Kanye from tweeting these fake quotes that never existed. Very Trumpish and it is dangerous because dumb people believe and racist people don't care if it is true or false. Quote has been used by racist people for decades it is entirely made up. https://t.co/0gMEi7YXC0

There also seems to be a new trending hashtag called “#SlaveryWasAChoice” poking fun of the comments by West.
