Van Lathan is a TV journalist who became famous after his disagreement with a famous rapper, Kayne West after he said slavery was choice, during his interview with TMZ Live interview.

Kanye visited the TMZ headquarters for TMZ Live and declared on camera that living under slavery was a choice made by the African-Americans.

Following the several offensive comments on slavery, Lathan then stood up and asked the TMZ employees:

“Do you feel like I’m thinking free and feeling free?”

That is when Van stepped forward to put on his strong response on slavery. He said:
“I don’t think you’re thinking anything.”

He further continued:

“I think what you’re doing right now is the absence of thought. And the reason why I feel like that is that, Kanye, you’re entitled to your opinion. You’re entitled to believe whatever you want.”
