Yay or Nay for 'Ye?


By now Im sure you all have heard about Kanye's comments made during the live telecast that NBC did on Friday. My question to yall is how do you feel about it? Was it warranted? Justified? Wrong place wrong time? What? Read it again and tell me....

“I hate the way they portray us in the media,” West said echoing comments that big media outlets are biased in how they present images of the hurricane victims. “You see a black family, it says, ‘They're looting.’ You see a white family, it says, ‘They're looking for food.’ “It's been five days [waiting for federal help] because most of the people are black,” West said. “And even for me to complain about it, 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 is the biggest amount I can give…the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off, as slow as possible. I mean, the Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way -- and they've given them permission to go down and shoot us!”

And of course the we cant forget the grande finale of a line "George Bush doesnt care about Black people!". And at that point they promptly cut from 'Ye to an absolutely startled and befuddled Chris Tucker. LMAO. The look of Mike Meyers' face as 'Ye was going off, and Tucker's when they pitched to him earlier than he obviously expected was priceless to say the least. They say they woulda cut him off earlier but the censor dude was only listening for cuss words. Ha! HE-LARRY-US!!!!!

I'll tell yall this.......I fucking love it!. That shit took big time balls! I admire and respect the fact that he went for broke and did it at all.

Kanye did good in my opinion... he exercised his right to free speech on national television. I'm not mad at that.

I hate the fact that people (mostly our own people, I won't mention who, my boyfriend) are coming down on Kanyeeze for saying what he said. SO WHAT?!?!?!? A nigga can't say what is true? A nigga can't express his feelings and opinions? I forgot we are supposd to be puppets and read the teleprompter for the way we feel about certain situations. F*CK BUSH, his father and his momma. Of course he doesn't care about Black people, so because he said was is evident, its a problem? F*ck that!!! I'm proud that we have someone thats not scared to say what the F*ck they gotta say regardless of the backlash. BIG CAHUNAS!!!!

Kanye fucking ROCKS!! He said what everybody else is too afraid to say, FUCK GEORGE BUSH!! All that man cares about is getting that oil outta Iraq.. This war been going on almost 3 yrs and gas is fucking astronomical. A hurricane destroys one of the most culturally influential cities in our country and mothafucca are standing around like "WHAT?" You gotta be kidding me? They send swat teams and military to drive people out what little homes they have left... this country gets better and better... I'm on my way to Canada.

i love kanye for stating his beliefs. what bothers me is the fact that the network chose to cut his opinion from the west coast telecast. i'm amazed how the american goverment touts democracy and freedom elsewhere, yet is steadily taking them away from its own people. say it with me now..."freedom of speech!!!"
