Kanye says "Bush doesn't care about black people"



Kanye West bashes Bush on TV
Rapper Kanye West gave America a piece of his mind during NBC's Friday night airing of "A Concert for Hurricane Relief." While his partner on air, Mike Myers, read from a teleprompter about the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Kanye instead spoke of the injustice he believes the blacks of New Orleans have suffered. After a scathing review of the President, the camera cut away from West and to a less volatile Chris Tucker. What follows is a transcription of his speech.

"I hate the way they portray us in the media. We see a black family, it says they're looting, 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, I would be a hypocrite because I've tried to turn away from the TV because it's too hard to 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, the Red Cross is doing what they can. We already realize 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."

Mike Myers reads from teleprompter. When it is Kanye's turn, he says the following:

"George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Camera quickly cuts to Chris Tucker.
