What do you think about the comments Kanye West made against George Bush?

I think it was hilarious how Mike Myers stared at him right after he said "George Bush doesn't care about black people.  As far as the rest of his statements, I'm not sure, but I think he may be right.

He's a dumb*ss. The point of the event was to bring everybody together so money could be raised. Divisive comments, no matter how true they may be, distract from that purpose.

I'm getting really tired of the complaints that anyone who would *dare* speculate as to those who are either directly or indirectly responsible for this tragedy are merely voicing divisive and unproductive opinions at an "inopportune" time.

Whether Kanye West railed against Bush during a so-called "fund raiser", or whether its two weeks into the near future at some totally unrelated media event, it doesn't change the fact that Kanye is very likely RIGHT about the fact that the Bush administration (as well as most Republicans) have made it very clear that they couldn't give two shits about the black community in this country.

Hell, I don't even LIKE Kanye West, but I certainly agree with THAT particular statement.

Don't even get me started on her...
My deep dislike of Condi has nothing to do with her supposed "Uncle Tom" inclinations; just the fact that she was the most worthless National Security Advisor we've ever had.

Anyway, I'm noticing a trend..."Don't start laying blame on people, there's tragedy afoot!", then a year later it's "Get over it already, that was so long ago in the past...it's time to move on." Both being spectacular examples of emotional appeals to reduce dissention.

That's not a racist statement.  It's a statement from one who knows that, however undesirably, race still plays a very significant role in our society and our world.
