Kanye West and the George W. affair

Last night during the NBC broadcast of a hurricane relief concert, Grammy winning rapper Kanye West let out a torrent of criticism against President Bush’s seemingly lack of response to the crisis on the Gulf Coast.

West stated, “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.” While allowing that “the Red Cross is doing everything they can,” West declared that government authorities are intentionally dragging their feet on aid to the Gulf Coast. He even said that “They’ve given them permission to go down and shoot us.” West concluded his remarks with, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”.

In this world, where we are quick to react to celebrity outburst, it is easy to lay blame or show support for such occurrences. A more important question is, does Kanye West voice the frustration of the thousands of New Orleans residents who waited helplessly in these miserable conditions. It took the National Guard four days to arrive in New Orleans… a gross misjudgment.

What happened here? Who dropped the ball? We might not agree with Kanye’s remarks, but one thing is certain .. as the muddy waters clear, we are bound to find a number of political careers buried in the mess.

    Word verification option?
    The Word Verification option can be found on the settings – comments tab for your blog. If you choose “yes” for this setting, then people leaving comments on your blog will be required to complete a word verification step, similar to the one presented when you create a blog.

    What this does is to prevent automated systems from adding comments to your blog, since it takes a human being to read the word and pass this step. if you’ve ever received a comment that looked like an advertisement or a random link to an unrelated site, then you’ve encountered comment ads. A lot of this is done automatically by software which can’t pass the word verification, so enabling this option is a good way to prevent many such unwanted comments.
