Kanye West prompts question

Kanye West is getting grief for saying “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.”

Is it wrong to say that when people find themselves in a bad situation, and do not die trying to get out it – “it is a choice”?

Should I be criticized for making a bad choice if I assess my situation and decide I would be worse off fighting, then submitting to the slaver?

If I am in slavery, and believe it is wrong, should I be criticized for having children that will be enslaved?
