Yet again another reason to "Just say no to drugs!"

Kanye West's infinite wisdom I am going to leave out my comments that would include words like moron or idiot. Because I have been told that I have a problem with name calling.

I will, however, leave this Open for comments. Please tell me your thoughts on this because it is bound to be a great conversation piece. Make sure to watch the video :) and if you read my blog you better comment cause this one is on you guys :)

  • I bet they wish they would have had a better screening process in place before they turned the lights up on that guy.
    I wouldn't have wanted to watch that the first thing in the morning. It is 17:30 now and it still kind of confused me.:p

  • I don't understand why so many are saying Bush doesn't care about black people or if it had been white people there they would have been rescued sooner. They are Americans and we all care about them. It is sad this is becoming political.

  • I'm from Louisiana, and hearing crap like this from left-wing/hatemongering/knowitalls, burns me up. As the previous posters said, We Are All Americans here and we don't need crap like this. Put your money where your mouth is and STFU!!!!

  • Um ok I will probably be the only one to say RIGHT ON KANYE!! He was right maybe nervous as hell but right. No matter what anyone says, if the folks sitting on the roofs had been rich and white they would have been gone and fast.

  • Its too bad that people have to make this a race issue. It was a major boondogle from the local government up through the federal. But to make it a race issue is ridiculous. If its anything it may be a economic issue. I don't think anyone purposefully ignored the people stuck there. Did they not plan accordingly for having a way to get them out ahead of time? Certainly. But did America purposefully ignore these people because they were poor or a certain race? No Way. If nothing else the government wouldn't have done this unless it was a mismangement purely because it would cost millions to evacuate the stranded people after the storm than it would at the beginning. Unfortunately the people who were stranded there were victims of bureacracy and poor planning rather than racism. I do think this should never happen again and something should be done to prevent it in the future!

  • I can't stand this blame game everyone is playing!!!! This is a NATURAL DISASTER, meaning there is no one to blame. Yes, the response could have been better, but is pointing fingers going to fix anything? Kanye West is a racist. Plain and simple. This is not a race issue. It is a matter of people living in an area where they KNEW a major hurricane could strike at any time. Another one could come next week, next month or next year. The city of New Orleans is in a dangerous place...for God's sake its BELOW SEA LEVEL, why would any want to live there?! Come on people, stop blaming people for something they could not control. If these people had listened when they were told there was a hurricane coming and it could be really bad, they wouldn't be there! It is terrible that so many people died, but how many of those deaths could have been prevented if they had simply gotten out of the way.

  • No this is not a race issue. It would be a race issue if rescuers came in and plucked the rich white people from thier rooftops and told all of the poor black people "Hey, we'll come back for you after we get all of the white folks out." It just so happens that this natural disaster happened in an area with a large black population and so yes, there were alot of black people waiting to be rescued. I think the tables are turning and the real racism is happening to the white people now that are being accused of not having any human decency.

  • I spent the whole weekend watching different news sources and read that snipers fired at rescue helecopters near the convention center so they pulled back for some time. Not to bright on the snipers part.Snipers also fired on hospital workers and rescuers and on the Army Corps of engeniers that were trying to get somthing done about the dyke. So I dont't want to here any more commy pinko leftist vegitairian whiny racisist crap. Lar C.

  • I am originally form Louisiana myself, and I certainly don't think it is an issue of race.

    It is an issue of tribe. Take a look: http://www.ejectejecteject.com/

    I saw Kanye West yesterday on Oprah (like the first time in my life I ever watched that) and was impressed. Then last night I heard about this and was absolutely disgusted! Yes, President Bush is sooo prejudiced. That must be why he chose Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell.

  • Hi Sgt. Port. Hope you are doing alright.

    Politics of a Patriot is correct. I urge you and all your readers to visit EjectEjectEject and read Tribes. It is long and powerful and well worth it...and right on the money.

    Keep the faith.
