Skip to comments.KANYE WEST JUST SAID ON THE NBC FUNDRAISER: "GEORGE BUSH DOESN'T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE!"
Posted on 09/02/2005 5:45:47 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat
some rapper punk or whoever was just on trying to get people to donate money to the red cross. He was on with Mike Myers (Wayne's World). Mike Myers asked people to donate...then Kanye West went on a tirade about Iraq, Mike Myers said something else, and then Kanye says "GEORGE BUSH DOESN'T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE!"
WHAT A FREAKING OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!!
What that didn't say is that blacks fired on rescue workers AND shot a cop in the head. But then, that's ok since they're.....black.
I didn't think hip hop involved brains.
Geez, I'd hate to see how they graded THAT curve!
Does a Flat Line parabola?
Aha... Enough for an evidence. He's one of them buddy!
Thanks, I will contact the Salvation Army.
We don't have to tell the MSM anything. They aren't interested in black conservatives anyway because we don't serve their purposes. We need to be telling other Black folks whats up. Thats who we need to talk to. We need to tell them that the paternalism of the Dems does nothing to help us in the long run. We have got to help ourselves through education and free enterprise.
Gee. Geraldo grandstanding. He must be taking lessons from Shep Smith. But thanks for the summary :)

Anyone been able to find this POS West's email or contact info yet?
I work with a girl who lived in Louisiana for a couple of years. She said she had to get out because there was so much black on black racism.
What is their website?
Salvation Army for me too. The Red Cross? Wasn't there a problem with all the funds they received for 911 relief being used for admin purposes, upgrading facilities and infrastructure? I suppose it's carping to say that, but I'll stick with the SA.
I'm willing to bet that the crime being committed in NO is being carried out by blacks and their victims are black.Somebody should Cane West for making such an ignorant statement when the facts are right in front of him.
Why should someone black have to apologize for an idiotic comment someone else who they don't know who happens to share the same skin color as themselves? That is the same silly logic that calls for reperations.
Between this train of throught, and the idea on this thread that we should "punish" Kanye West, a multi-millionaire who will go home to his warm mansion, by withholding donations to the victims of this disaster of all races who have lost everything, I swear that some people on this board has gone completely goofy.
And can you imagine if that was Billy Jeff Clinton hgging her?
Personally, I'll be donating to the Salvation Army, but then I do that regularly anyway.
Maybe the mayor was stalling because he wanted to get rid of some evidence before the rescuers began swarming all over the place
It's only going to get worse and more vitriolic from here on in. And it's not even an election year. I agree. Take the gloves off, and no more Mr. Nice Repub. Like the terrorists, the only thing being nice to leftists gets you is DEAD (at the polls). We can't afford to EVER let them win again.
Can't agree more. If a person is going to talk politics they should be willing to pay the price and accept the fact that they will lose some of their fan base and support.
I don't care if a person talks politics as long as they know what they are talking about (Sean Astin, Ben Afleck etc)
I disagree. I think most blacks in America are good hard working people. If they don't make their voices known then the MSM is going to keep painting them all as welfare lazy butts. And as much as I hate to say it, "tell a lie often enough and folks start to believe it".
1-800-HELP-NOW. I'm calling to tell them "No soap". Too political. Salvation Army is pretty good.
Well, I called and got put on hold. Guess I'll email 'em.
Wow don't donate because Kayne West is a dumbass.
I saw that also. Mike Myers who was on with him looked like he was going to have a heart attack, and the cameras switched to another star who was non political. He also said the gov't gave the military permission to go in and shoot blacks.
What a bunch of pure hollywood scum.
Reprehensible! Gutless wonders! I guess they were all hoping that no one heard it!
Bravo! Well said, and best kept in mind at all times.
All the more reason why mainstreams blacks, part of the backbone of this country, should be up in arms against the MSM & CBC.
I just called. The operator was unaware of the comment being made which is understandable. She was horrified. I told her
I would not be making a contribution untill an apology is made.
It took me two days to get through. Keep trying, it's worth the wait.
For those of you who want to help, but don't want it going to the Red Cross for various reasons, check out this Baptist Relief link (and a description of what they are doing right now):
These are great folks who are on the front-line helping out....100% goes to the relief effort, not overhead and administrative stuff.
Donate through another source. Just not them. But contact them and voice your displeasure. Hopefully we get a list of NBC sponsors that can be contacted as well. Nothing short of a full retraction, apology, will be accepted. Get ready to not watch their programming because I think the retraction will not be forthcoming.
Kanye, It's not that he doesn't care about black people, it's just that, he doesn't give a rat's behind about YOU!
Here is his agent's website
I seriously doubt they knew what he was going to say. I mean, why would anyone say something so counterproductive and stupid that might alienate part of your fan base?
My wife likes to say that if you have to ask you have already answered the question.
I HATED that song. That idiot isn't fit to carry Shirley Bassey's shoes...
"tell a lie often enough and folks start to believe it".
You may have a point. But part of me resents the fact that I have to refute any distortions that the MSM has put out there. All people really have to do is open their eyes and there are plenty of mainstream hard working Blacks just going about their daily business anyway. Why must I grandstand like Geraldo?
Probably didn't know, I agree... But, with the long standing tradition of beating the snot out of this President, a 5 second delay should've been used....
The most intelligent post that I have read tonight.
We're still angry about the SF earthquake... we donated money and received a letter saying that the Red Cross felt like they had done all they could, but they were going to keep our donation to use in other areas of need.
My only issue with NOT giving to them is that my wife's employer is matching Red Cross dontations...
So fed up with the cheap shots at GWB for everything that goes wrong anywhere.
I just emailed them. I don't expect a response though. Now on to NBC.
Too many people think the world is a movie...especially those in the media who are all about "video". The Feds do not snap their fingers and all of a sudden 50,000 helicopters show up. Where do they get pilots? where do they get fuel? where do they take people? are people willing to leave?
People there obviously need help, but if the "MAYOR" of NO would have prepared and his city council would have prepared a little better, this would not be such a big deal.I saw the picture of schools buses all parked in a lot under water. Why didn't you have these buses combing the neighborhood picking up people to transport? I bet the mayor got out in plenty of time.
We're tired of the hip-hop mentality being looked to as a place of conscience and moral direction. They are viewed by the MSM, Sports writers, Hollywood, etc. as if they are the great artists of our time. Hog wash! We will find other places to donate, places that recognize the hip-hop mindset is nothing more than spoiled and defiant.
