My friend Kerri Harrop first let me know about this video clip. Here's what she wrote:

    I have been watching the live feed of the Concert For Hurricane Relief, broadcast on MSNBC. My curiosity was piqued when I saw that the line-up of presenters included the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, two people I do not normally turn to in times of crisis.

    The concert is, of course, painful to watch but obviously for a good cause. You can’t dis any effort that is being made to provide aid to those that desperately need it. I had it on in the background while I finished my work for the day, not really paying much attention. Until the moment came, about 40 minutes into the broadcast, when Mike Myers and Kanye West were sharing the stage.

    Mike started things off, with a plea for help. It was then Kanye’s turn to speak. As he began, it became very clear that he was not reading from the prepared script. While Mike Meyers nervously looked from Kanye to the screen and then back, Kanye unleashed the following:

    “I hate the way they portray us in the media, if you see a black family it says they’re looting, if you see a white family it says they’re looking for food. And, you know, it’s been five days. Because most of the people are black. And, even for me to complain about it, I would be a hypocrite. Because, I’ve tried to turn away from the tv because it’s too hard too watch. I’ve even been shopping before even giving a donation. So, now I’m calling my business manager right now to see what’s, what is the biggest amount I can give.

    And, and just to imagine if I was, if I was down there and those are, those are my people down there so anybody out there that wants to do anything that we can help.

    With the set up, the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well off, as slow as possible. I mean, this is, Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of the people that could help are at war right now fighting another way and they, they’ve given them permission to go down and shoot us.”

    During this entire speech, he was visibly nervous and stammering. Mike Myers then stepped in with a few obviously scripted words, while Kanye stood, looking angry and upset. Mike finished talking and Kanye then made a statement that made me really sit up and notice. He looked straight at the camera and said, quite simply, yet with authority:

    “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

    Mike Meyers looked panic stricken and the camera was abruptly cut from them.

    NBC is set to re-broadcast this tonight and I will bet you whatever you like that they will not include this segment. For those wondering, I transcribed Kanye’s script directly from the broadcast. Although it is a bit disjointed, the dude really tried to make his point.


Think hes got pure balls to stand up on LIVE national TV and say that....I think he's pretty much spt on with what he says. Hats off to the fella.
