Kanye Said What???


I know by now, you all have heard about Kanye's rant on Friday's night's "A Concert for Hurricane Relief", so I won't go into detail about the whole thing. But I will provide you with what he said, in case you couldn't fully understand exactly what he said during the telecast.
So, without further ado, Kanye speak your mind...

"I hate the way they portray us in the media. If you see a black family, they say, 'They're looting.' See a white family, it says, 'They are looking for food,' " the Grammy winning artist began.

He noted that it took five days before federal help kicked in and then suggested the lag was "because most of the people are black."

"And even for me to complain about it, I would be a hypocrite because I've tried to turn away from the TV because it's too hard to watch. I've even been shopping before even giving a donation, so now I'm calling my business manager right now to see what is the biggest amount I can give, and just to imagine if I was down there, and those are my people down there," he continued as Myers looked on, shell-shocked.

"So anybody out there that wants to do anything that we can help--with the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off, as slow as possible. I mean, the Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way...and they've given them permission to go down and shoot us!"

He then started to say, "George Bush doesn't care about black people..." before MSNBC President Rick Kaplan, who produced the telethon at New York's Rockefeller Plaza, decided to cut off West's microphone and cut to an unaware Chris Tucker, who was staring off into space waiting for his scheduled time.

    Good for Kanye on that speech, but without that badass speech, Bush wouldn't send help rightaway. But again, I have to say everything's isn't Bush's fault. And I am sure he didn't say he hates black people nor does he doesn't care for them. What can you do, he's from Texas, ya know?
