I wonder how Mike Myers felt having to do a PSA next to somebody that stupid.

How much money has he given?

apparantly, neither do the other blacks who live down there and are shooting and raping each other and looting their neighbors homes.

There was a several-second tape delay, but the person in charge "was instructed to listen for a curse word, and didn't realize (West) had gone off-script," said NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks.

Uh huh, sure... that's our story and we're sticking with it.
 
2005-09-02 11:07:34 PM  
Oh boy, I'm ready to open my wallet now.

/but not for this particular effort - Kayne == asshat of the young century
 
2005-09-02 11:08:07 PM  
because the race card is always cool!
 
2005-09-02 11:08:14 PM  
And anyway, George Bush DOES care about black people... rich black people.

What was the New Orleans local gov'ment doing during the last 40 years...I mean it's not really been a secret that this kind of thing could happen?

I guess they needed just "one more year" on the federal tit to get those levee's high enough...
 
2005-09-02 11:09:01 PM  
If someone can explain to me how the cool tag got used here, I would really appreciate it.

Maybe he wanted Bush to help him get those other grammies.

And what makes you SO certain only blacks are shooting and raping each other down there in NO?

Ditto.

Oh, yes, cuz all the black people in this country are soooo oppressed.


/I hate Kanye West

2005-09-02 11:10:04 PM  
I'm so glad I have a Tivo. FF-FF-FF and he's gone in about 5 seconds.
 
2005-09-02 11:10:05 PM  
"RELEASE THE HOUNDS !!!!!"

2005-09-02 11:10:17 PM  
Idiot.
 
2005-09-02 11:10:19 PM  
Considering Kanye likes to go off about the government distributing AIDS and crack to kill off the Black Man, he's going to have a tough time being taken seriously.

Though I do like the first three tracks of his new album.
 
2005-09-02 11:10:25 PM  
<omarion>At least he prayed for me.</omarion>
 
2005-09-02 11:10:30 PM  
Yeah, thats going to make things get better.
 
2005-09-02 11:10:33 PM  
Useless without video.

Rap music mostly.

2005-09-02 11:11:04 PM  
Kayne == asshat of the young century

Seriously? You sure are forgiving.
 
2005-09-02 11:11:10 PM  
Correction - thanks for the links.

Mayor Nagin and the governors are in deep shiat. Emergency response plans and disaster relief are planned at the local and county (sometimes state) level. This is where FEMA and other federal agencies start off, basing their response and help on the existing state and local plans. The feds do not plan evacuations (except on multiple state levels) and do not release aid until asked for by the state governors. Bush has done all he can and has done more than was required by declaring the area a disaster BEFORE the hurricane hit. Other than that, it isn't up to him to do anything since it is in FEMA's and the other state agency's hands. All the lack of planning and early lack of response for help can be put SQUARELY on the mayor and governor.

Has anyone photoshopped a Magic--The Gathering "Race Card?"

It should get twice as much play around here as "Summon Bevets."
 
2005-09-02 11:11:45 PM  
what a moron. snopes has already debunked the black looting vs white finding thing. bah.

anything for more press. asshat.

kanye should get dropped off in a riot zone without food and see how long he lasts.
 
2005-09-02 11:11:48 PM  
The first person to refer to this as Kanyegate gets a cockpunch.

(The previous sentence is exempted.)
 
2005-09-02 11:12:11 PM  
jerk. we all know the hurricane was racist.

Because its fun seeing a celebrity make an idiot of themself.

George Bush shows that he doesn't care about black people by putting them into his cabinet.
 
2005-09-02 11:12:46 PM  
Quick survey:

On a scale of 1-10, how much does President Bush care about blacks in America?
 
2005-09-02 11:12:48 PM  
Because remember, if you criticize the president, the hurricanes win and you demoralize the rescuers.

/Take your right wing PC BS and shove it
 
2005-09-02 11:12:51 PM  
Why in the hell is this labeled "Cool"? I hate Bush as much as the next guy, but Kanye did nothing but make himself look like a moron...

Well, major levee and seaway construction is done by the Army Corps of Engineers, funded by the federal government. I guess Alaska needed over $400-million this year to build two bridges more, than New Orleans needed for levees.

/Looks like somebody has a colder tit than Congress.
 
2005-09-02 11:13:13 PM  
Kanye West is about as qualified to talk about race relations as limbaugh and Oreilly
 
2005-09-02 11:13:17 PM  
 
2005-09-02 11:13:18 PM  
Poor black people hate rich black people. Race card should be burned. There is no racism anymore. It's a myth. I don't even know who this tard is but he made his point. And that point was "I'm a moron."

AirForceVet:

I'm not taking sides, but it's hard to dispute that most of the people left behind in NO are black.
 
2005-09-02 11:13:30 PM  
Who is this Kanye West guy?
 
2005-09-02 11:13:33 PM  
Why the hell did this get green lit with a cool tag?

Phbbbtttt!
 
2005-09-02 11:13:36 PM
