It was singer Kanye West, and he nauseates me. A relief concert is not the place to go off on a half-nut rant against the President, calling him a racist on national television.
Kanye can go take a flying leap off the nearest tall building without a parachute. This relief concert is intended to be a place to get people to open their wallets and their cupboards and give to the needy. What the heck good does it serve to risk ticking off half the viewership by spewing something very close to hate speech?
I sat there stunned, much like Mike Myers did standing next to West. I'm sorry, call the President naive perhaps, maybe disbelieving, maybe even slow - but you need to show me some proof before you can stand there on MY tv set and call the President racist.
I don't know what media West is referring to, but everytime I've seen the media refer to someone as a looter, that person, regardless of color of skin, was carrying a freaking TV set, stereo, basket of shoes. They were shooting freaking sniper shots at rescue helicopters.
I hope they shove West off the tv, shove him off the radio, and just get him the heck out of the limelight. His s**t doesn't deserve to be given any attention right now.
