The 13th Amendment, you'll recall (from Killer Mike's "Reagan") is the one that outlawed slavery, except for people in prison.
On Twitter this weekend, after his triumphant appearance on "Saturday Night Live," Kanye called for repealing the 13th Amendment. Later, after widespread outrage, he suggested we merely amend the amendment, which . . . can you amend an amendment? I didn't pay a whole lot of attention in high school.
Some of the Internets' most astute commentators suggested that maybe Kanye only meant that we should get rid of the part where slavery still exists in prison, but I'm not so sure. In that first tweet, Kanye promises no unemployment, and I'm at a loss for how that would even be possible without bringing back slavery.
My concern is that Kanye doesn't realize that if Trump brought back slavery he'd be enslaved just like the rest of us. I think he gets a lot of his talking points from Candace Owens and Jordan Peterson, and he doesn't bother reading up on them, maybe because he doesn't know how to read—which would explain quite a bit.
Regardless, this is not the time to be talking about bringing back slavery. We're within a week of Brett Kavanaugh being confirmed to the Supreme Court, which will result in, among other things, Trump being officially above the law. If he doesn't have enough seats to bring back slavery now, it's only a matter of time.
