Kanye West said some really stupid shit on NBC lastnight. The video (via Riehl World View) is quite funny. I feel bad for Mike Myers though, he didn’t look to happy with Kanye’s statements. Basically, Kanye feels that President Bush “doesn’t care about black people.” He goes on to basically say that the U.S. governments goal is to kill black people in areas effected by Katrina. A lot of what he says isn’t really intelligible, he’s got some serious shit just pouring out of his mouth.
Personally, I think Kanye West is a racist. I’ve listened to enough of his music to know that he’s got some serious issues with white people. He likes to think that the entire establishment is out to get him and blacks in general. He’s seriously paranoid.
Anyone with half a brain can figure out why there’s so many black people in the areas hit by Katrina. Especially in New Orleans. Just look at the numbers. In the 2000 census, 67.25% of the New Orleans population was black. Does the census include poor people? I doubt it, but I dunno. With those numbers, I’d say it’s pretty safe to say that a majority of the poor population in New Orleans is also black. Why’s that? It’s not because they’re black you fucking retards Kanye and Jesse Jackson. It’s simply due to the fact that more black people live there than any other race. It’s not hard to comprehend. I wonder if Kanye finished school cuz it’s really a pretty basic principle.
Confederate Yankee has a press release from the Red Cross in response to Kanye’s comments on NBC. PunditGuy feels for Mike Myers too, as everyone probably does. Dave at Garfield Ridge has various updates. In one of the updates he mentions Chris Tucker at the end. I thought that was Chris Tucker, video is pretty blurry though. Mad Dog Vinnie’s comment at Six Meat Buffet is hilarious. This reminded Tony of an old SNL skit involving Mike Myers. I can’t say I recall that skit, but he’s got a transcript from the SNL.
I’m sorta late on this one as I was probably sleeping when this was on NBC lastnight. It’s too good to resist posting though. And it seems that I’m one of the few people in the blogosphere who knows who Kanye West is. He’s a rapper, and he’s actually really good. I used to listen to him a lot when I had my subs and amp in my car, mostly cuz his songs had massive bass lines. Now I just look down on him though as another Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton wannabe.
