Shut Up Already!

"George Bush doesn't care about black people," West said from New York during the show aired live on the East Coast on NBC, MSNBC, CNBC and Pax, just before cameras cut away to comedian Chris Tucker.

West, who is black, suggested moments earlier that delays in providing relief to survivors of the hurricane that hit the U.S. Gulf Coast on Monday and flooded New Orleans were deliberate. He said America was set up "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible."

The Grammy award-winning singer, who was paired with comedian Mike Myers, also said in what NBC described as unscripted remarks, "We already realized a lot of the people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way, and they've given them permission to go down and shoot us."

My Humble Opinion....

This guy has no idea what he's talking about. First of all, I am not a fan of President Bush at all, but he is not to blame. If Mr. West wants to blame someone he needs to blame the Mayor and the Governor. The facts are that nobody did anything to prepare for this hurricane. They had 3-5 days to do so and they chose to do nothing.

As for shooting people for looting? You're damn right! Excuse me Mr. West but taking plasma tv's and guns isn't what I call acceptable looting for survival. Think before you speak. You obviously do not know the facts. Stick with your day job.

Oh by the way...New Orleans isn't the only place that was affected by the hurricane. Mississippi was severely damaged. Maybe because there isn't any crimes being committed or the fact that neighbors are HELPING neighbors doesn't draw media attention, that is unacceptable in my eyes. There are people in need in that state as well.

Since gas prices are so high, I thought I would share this. Go to this site and put in your zip code. It will show you the cheapest gas station in your area. Could save you some money!
