Subject: Kanya to George

In case you haven't already seen this, on a live nationally-televised
telethon for hurricane relief tonight, Kanye West issued a
racial critique of how the relief has been mishandled, and ended with
the clincher: "George Bush does not care about Black people."

Here are links to video clips, and a transcript is below...

Mike Myers: [dutifully reads canned plea for charity on teleprompter]

Kanye: [abandons teleprompter] "I hate the way they portray us in the
media. You see a black family and they say we are looting, you see a
white family and they say they are looking for food. And, you know,
its been five days because most of the people ARE black. And even for
me to complain, I would be a hypocrite because I would turn away from
the TV because it's too hard to watch. I've even been shopping
even giving a donation, so now I'm calling my business manager right
to see what is the biggest amount I can give. And just to imagine, if
I was down there and those are my people down there. If there is
anybody out there that wants to do anything that we can help about
way America is set up the help the poor, the black people, the less
well off as slow as possible. Red cross is doing as much as they can.
We already realize a lot of the people that could help are at war
right now, fighting another way. And now they've given them
to go down and shoot us.

Mike Myers: [stands frozen in horror, decides to pretend nothing
happened and stick with the teleprompter]


Mike Myers: [descends into complete panic]
