Rapper Kanye West declares during live relief benefit: "George Bush doesn't care about Black people"

According to Billboard, Rapper Kanye West announced during a live-broadcast hurricane-relief event: "'George Bush doesn't care about Black people' and said America is set up 'to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible.'" He'd begun his remarks by saying, "I hate the way they portray us in the media. If you see a Black family, it says they're looting. See a White family, it says they're looking for food."

P.S. Late Registration is a pretty hot album, in my opinion. Do you think agree with his points on Bush. I'm not sure anymore, but there are a lot of times that I question what Bush does and says during his terms in office.

I don't really think its a black thing but more of a poor thing, and uneducated issue. If the black and white poor folks would join hands they would be a very powerful force in this country.
