Kanye West is a Racist

Saturday, September 03, 2005

(SSN Los Angeles) Yesterday during the Concert for Hurricane Relief, Kayne West made racist comments in relation to the President of the United States. Fortunately, NBC cut Kayne's comments from the West Coast feed.

NBC cut Kayne's comments from the West Coast feed.

West started off by accusing the media of racial bias. "I hate the way they portray us in the media. If you see a black family it says they are looting if you see a white family it says they are looking for food, said West. But the real bombshell was yet to be dropped. West concluded his statement saying, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Many disagree with West's remarks, including a group of black members of Congress that met to express their anger at the federal response. "The issue is not about race right now," said Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio. "There will be another time to have issues about color."

President Bush reminded us that not only the poor had been affected.

The black members of Congress spoke during a joint new conference of the Congressional Black Caucus, the Black Leadership Forum, the National Conference of State Legislators, the National Urban League and the NAACP. The organizations charged that the response has been slow because those most affected were poor.

However, in a lighthearted speech yesterday, President Bush reminded us that not only the poor had been affected. "Out of the rubbles of Trent Lott's house -- he's lost his entire house -- there's going to be a fantastic house. And I'm looking forward to sitting on the porch, drinking moon shine and playing a banjo." Lott was last seen looting a Rite Aid for ammunition.

It is unlikely that the words of the delegation of black members of Congress will be heeded, firstly, because they are Democrats, and secondly, because they are black. But one message should remain clear. President Bush doesn’t hate black people. President Bush hates poor people.
