Some seem to take offense to this issue. It's not being racial. It's being realistic. Look around. Everything isn't well off for everybody in the United States.

The media has played this up into a race issue, first by differentiating between "looting" and "finding". Black people picked up on this and made a big deal about it. And because EVERYONE needs a scapegoat, they pointed to Bush. But you can't help blaming the lowly blacks who stole expensive liquor and jewelry, rather than getting supplies for survival. <--- this is what the media focused on. If they had thought about hiding from the cameras, maybe this wouldn't have happened.

No one has seen Bush kiss two black ladies on the forehead. So that further makes him a racist.... in people's minds, that is.

Bush is probably trying hard not to come off as racist. It's difficult to squash that image when you're a rich white man commanding a country with blacks who are quick to point out racism at every turn.

I've heard of freedom of speech. The fact that Kanye seams to make everything a race issue is making me think he is a complete jack a.ss. I'm white, yet I feel for everyone down on the Gulf Coast affected by this disaster. He turned this into a war of white's against blacks. He is ignorant, and should never be allowed onto live television again.

As for him bringing racial issues to the forefront of the nations biggest disaster is just absurred. I understand that George Bush is an a.ss hole. I think he could care less about the people there. But Kanye saying anything relating to race, in this time of need ... just makes him look like a a.ss hole, especially to the white people who turned in to watch this NBC special.

Thanks alot Kanye ... I'll never buy anything with your name on it again.
he didnt say white people dont care about black people he said george bush dooesnt, damn ppl actin like kanye was callin out every white person in america he called out one man on sum sh*t that was already obvious idk y ppl actin like that statement came outta nowhere

No matter if you agree or disagree with Kanye, his timing was horrible.
Theres a time and place to say some sh*t like that.

He could of cost the redcross millions.

People didnt tune in to hear his political views, they tuned in to help the people who are dying.

If Kanye is so concerned about the black people left why doesnt he do something about it instead of claiming Bush a racist?

fu*king Harry Conick Jr was in New Orleans after the Hurricane physically helping, what was Kanye doing?

The red cross special was to raise money for the victims, those celebrities where on there to help raise money for the victims.

Kanye took his time to tell you about his feelings for George Bush.


He's a real standup guy.

I'm not getting on you but why do white people find it so hard to believe that things are done to black people because of race. I'm 34, black..my parents are from the south, they were born in 1939 and 1942. They have seen lynchings they have had to ride the back of the bus. They have drank from "blacks only" water fountains and have watched movies from black's only sections of theatres. They have watched Jackie Robinson break the color barrier and blacks get beat in the streets and water hosed by fire departments while the police stood by and did nothing. They have also watched the government send in the national guard just so one little black girl could go to the University of Mississippi.
My parents are 63 and 66. I say all of that to say this.....My parents are still here and healthy..do you think all of those racist people are not still alive too?
Do you think some of them do not still hold political office and positions of power???? Do you think some of them did not pass along there racist views to their children???? America has only only passed legislation to try and insure that we live up to the language and goals of our constitution, but you cant legislate peoples feelings.
Whats left to say?

My dad says Kanye West is a racist and I'm no longer allowed to use him as a wallpaper and/or listen to his music.

WTF...I was laughing so hard, I don't think he even knows what Kanye was talkin about with the media.

I do agree that it might not have been the right time but somebody with some recognition needed to step up and Kanye did he basically was just telling how all these media outlets were portraying blacks out as looters while they would show whites doing the exact same thing but they were looking for food what kinda sh*t is that. It had to be done and Kanye did it.

They cant do anything to him for saying that. I dont know what they are talking about saying how saying he will pay for what he said. Its freedom of speech and he has the right to say his oppinion.

Just because Kanye said bush doesn't care about black people doesn't mean he believes bush cares about poor white people or any people for that matter….a lot of people are a.ssuming too much...
