Jay-Z Backs Kanye's Bush Comments [President doesn't care about black people]
Billboard ^ | 9/7/05 | Billboard

Posted on 09/06/2005 10:30:39 PM PDT by freedom44

Rap mogul Jay-Z is standing behind Def Jam colleague Kanye West in the wake of the latter's comments during Friday's telethon to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina. As previously reported, West declared that "George Bush doesn't care about black people" and that America is set up "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible."

"I'm backing Kanye 100%," Jay-Z tells Billboard by phone from London. "This is America. You should be able to say what you want to say. We have freedom of speech."

Jay-Z admits he shares some of West's views about the slow response to the disaster. "It's really numbing," he says. "You can't believe it's happening in America. You wonder, what's going on? Why were people so slow to react? I don't understand it."

Although Jay-Z says he hasn't "spoken to anyone about doing a concert event" to benefit Katrina victims, he says he wants to speak with Sean "Diddy" Combs about starting a fund exclusively to aid African-Americans in times of crisis. "Just in case anything like this happens in the future, we can do what the elder Bush and [former President Bill] Clinton are doing for our people specifically."

Maybe they can do it along the lines of Live8. They could hold a "Hurricane Awareness" concert, raise zero money for victims of Katrina, and all of the singers could be given more $10,000 watches to add to their collection. Heck, maybe we should have these singers paid for taking the time out of their busy schedules to host a charity event!

These people are outta their damned minds.

Your freedom of speech is on your own dime.

You pay for the broadcast time and then say what you want.

These people seem to be too stupid to know better.

It's sickening that the NFL has yet to drop that Kanye racist from their opening entertainment line-up on September 8th.

Frickin' idiots.

I see, no word about the atrocities committed against the survivors by other survivors in New Orleans.

I guess those young children raped and murdered meant nothing to Jay-Z and Kanye.

And no realization that the mayor is the one accountable.

I could be wrong but that sounds kinda' wrong, Jayz...kinda' racist...kinda' like judging people based on the color of their skin instead of the content of their heart.

Sumtin' like that.

Well shiz! I don't care about "black" people either.

I care about productive citizens, of any color, that are trying to do the right thing and help THEMSELVES recover for a devatating tragedy.

And these same "celebrities" quoted in this article have the gall to accuse other people of being racist?

It's the most assinine and divisive thing to say. It's classic Liberalism. Democrats (Nagin and Blanco) get a pass.

Maybe someone should have a concert to benefit only the rescue workers who were shot at while trying to rescue the people Nagin & Blanco left behind. Especially, we should recognize the helicopter pilots who were shot at....c'mon, Jayz, that seems kind of fair.

Honestly! Let's take this horrifying tragedy, Jayz, and use it to drive a wedge between people based on something as stupid as skin color variations. I've got a great song you can remix, Jayz..."Everyday People"...Sly & the Family Stone...maybe you've heard of it.

SunnyD1182...I have no patience with Jayz's kind of thinking. No patience at all. Its like he and like minded choose to live in the past just to hold on to their grievances.

Sheesh, I thought only the Irish did that. (dunking and running my white, Irish *ss outta' here)

Yeah that's the ticket; start a fund for black people only. Then during the next disaster you can tell all the white people to just die, the money's not for you.

Don't you feel the hip hop love in this crowd?

Yeah. I looked it up, and he wore the shirt at his MTV Unplugged concert. Unplugged rapper, geez. Anyway, the shirt is visible on the cover of the accompanying CD, but you can't really make out Che too well. Funny thing is, I did a search, and a little punk commie was furious that he wears the shirt and calls himself "Jay Guevara." He's mainly mad because he referred to himself as "Che Guevara with bling." You can imagine how that got his little commie anti-materialist beeber stuned.

Hi All-

Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter was featured in an article (and on the cover) of the October 2005 edition of WatchTime magazine. I shook my head ruefully as I read how the great company Audemars Piguet created three versions of the Royal Oak Offshore Jay-Z 10th Anniversary Limited Edition watches:

The article goes on to say how the tasteful diamond-crusted "10" symbolizes the ten years that Jay-Z allegedly spent recording music from 1995-2005. The one-page article with photograph made me want to barf.

Each of these watches apparently comes delivered with an Apple iPod that has been preloaded with all of his so-called music. Why would this great and fabled Swiss watch company cheapen their image by becoming associated with this silly knucklehead?

"Just in case anything like this happens in the future, we can do what the elder Bush and [former President Bill] Clinton are doing for our people specifically."

If they actually create a blacks-only fund, we desperately need someone to start a fund for ONLY WHITE PEOPLE. It looks like a lot of WHITE PEOPLE actually followed the evacuation orders and left town. It looks like a lot of BLACK PEOPLE, including the mayor with his 400 parked city buses, stayed behind and expected the feds to rush in 5 seconds after the storm and save their asses.

Because of Kanye West's "people," this natural disaster quickly turned into a mess of starvation, stealing, murder, rape and mayhem. Racist pigs like Jay-Z and West can go bitch to the choir on BET. The rest of America isn't gonna buy the crap they're selling.

The rapper-racist serves a culture that has 80% of its children born out of wedlock and 50% of its males either in prison, on probation, or awaiting trial. We've lost 2 or 3 generations of african-americans b/c of primitives like him.
