Harriet Tubman Descendant Responds To Kanye West’s Outlandish Claims

  • The great-great-great niece of Harriet Tubman has responded to Kanye’s comment about the civil rights legend. [Kanye]"would still be on that plantation,”said Tina Wyatt toTMZ.
  • "She was selfless, she was already free. She didn't have to come back. She didn't have to risk her life, but she did it countless times, he would not be able to be out there saying the things he says, and he wouldn’t have the money he has because they would have it all,”says Wyatt. 
  • Kanye’s comment saying“Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just sent them to work for other white people,”didn’t sit well with many taking to social media to call the rapper out for his offensive statement. 
  • T.I., Snoop Dogg, and rapper Noname all called out West for the comment via their social media platforms.
