Kanye West's rant

http://media.putfile.com/Kanye79

At first, i thought it was a skit b/c Mike Myers was on with him... but Myers looked friggin' mortified afterwards! lol. Oh, and Kanye used the wrong forum to voice his anger. This show was not about HIS agenda, but to raise money for the victims of the hurricane. What an obnoxious d-bag.

edit: oh, this was filmed live during NBC's concert for the hurricane benefit.

Eh...it needs to be said. We need to just confront the race issue head on in some fashion. I'm tired of black people not being able to voice their feelings without someone saying they always play the race card. I'm also tired of tired of the race issue being brought up when sometimes it's just not the case. Let's just find a way to help heal the situation and end the tension.

Although Kanye didn't do a good job of expressing himself--he didn't have much time--I see what he's saying. Hell, how much man power is always devoted to a single blonde woman who constantly goes missing in America every year....

On the one hand I think it wasn't the time for that to be said. But on the other it needed to be said because be it for the right or the wrong reasons ALOT of people really feel like that right now.

Myers reactions were priceless.

Isn't this the guy threw a party where Suge Knight was shot not so long ago? I don't think I'll be taking him too seriously.

Odd, I was sure I saw both black AND white people on the television down there. It's too bad this just didn't happen on an indian reservation instead... then nobody would have gave a fuck.......

the fact is the majority of New Orleans is black.. hence the majority of looters are black.. if a disaster happened in Vermont, the looters would be white.. if it happened in Texas, they would be Hispanic...

Kayne West's idiotic comments show the need to tape delay any event, especially ones with moron "celebrities"
A lot of people won't be using your telethon to donate money due to that idiot's ridiculous race baiting.

His new album doesn't really matter here.

*Though you're wrong, and it was 10 times better than his last album.
And what he said was true. Finally someone had the guts to say it without fear of being accused of "playing the race card"

Didn't Mike do a sketch similar to this on SNL? He and Heather Locklear's characters were trying to sell a pasta maker on tv and she kept blurting out stuff about the Holocaust while he was trying to stay on course.

EDIT: Here it is

Well, it certainly doesn't matter to me. But since his "unscripted" outburst has now ensured that his name will be bandied about in every newspaper, website, and news-talk program in the country tomorrow, it probably matters to him.

So what? Fuck Heather Locklear for playing the race card and fuck her new album. But mostly I'll fuck Heather Locklear.

You just don't get it, dork. I feel her music. It speaks to me.

I can relate to what she has to say as I am also a former 80s blonde bimbo who has had sex with Tommy Lee.

exactly, this is an issue of economic class, not race. those stranded in the city during and after the storm were there not because of the color of their skin but because of their income (or lack thereof), health, or a combination of the two.

i am, by no means, a fan of george w bush but calling him racist in this context is short-sighted and irresponsible. did he and his buddies cut federal money for better flood/disaster preparedness in the city? yes. should he have gone back to washington if nothing more than to give the illusion of government in action instead of flying to AZ to grandstand and talk up his war? yes. were either of those decisions, or any of the other countless he's made concerning the disaster, motivated by "not caring black people?" not at all.

kanye west needs to use this time urge his fans and fellow americans to give to the relief effort, not to spout his theories from a soapbox.

With that username, you should be fighting for Anime and Manga rights for 10-yr olds.
