ATLANTA —

Atlanta rapper B.o.B, who started a GoFundMe campaign in September aiming to bankroll his quest to prove the Earth is flat, is back with more revisionist history.

This time he questions if slavery happened in America.

“You ever seen a slave ship? They can find a billion year old dinosaur bone but can’t find any slave ships,” he wrote in an Instagram post.

He’s also not sure if the planet we all live on is a thing, either. “Earth is not a place. It’s a state of mind,” he tweeted.

To state the crushingly obvious, it’s not hard to find evidence of slave ships and other vestiges of slavery. Here’s an article in The Atlantic about efforts by a network of scholars and the Smithsonian to restore a sunken ship that wrecked in 1794.
