i saw it more of a
"we're not slaves to a master anymore, but we're slaves to our possessions and show off things we don't have"
sort of like how rap artists make it out of poverty, but they're still slaves to brands and "bling" so the chains aren't made of iron anymore they're gold, but chains nonetheless.

I think it's actually broader than that, and is meant to depict modern culture as a whole and its obsession with possession and wealth, in that we are all slaves to money and technology, and it is often mainly through displaying material wealth that we gain status in society. The reason a black man in chains is shown may be that that is simply the lowest common denominator of what most people imagine a typical slave looks like (which is very tragic in itself).
