The notion that black people are human beings is a relatively new discovery in the modern west.
"After the accident West recorded the remainder of the album in Los Angeles while recovering. Once he had completed the album, it was leaked months before its release date. However, West decided to use the opportunity to review the album, and The College Dropout was significantly remixed, remastered, and revised before being released. As a result, certain tracks originally destined for the album were subsequently retracted, among them "Keep the Receipt" with Ol’ Dirty Bastard and "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" with Consequence. West meticulously refined the production, adding string arrangements, gospel choirs, improved drum programming, new verses and comedic skits woven into the album. West’s perfectionism led The College Dropout to have its release postponed three times from its initial date in August 2003. First it got delayed to October, then to January 2004, and finally it hit stores on February 10th 2004."-wiki DL HERE
