JAY-Z SIDES WITH YEEZY’S 2005 COMMENT “GEORGE BUSH DOESN’T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE”
]Just the fact that he thinks that the worst thing that happened to him is Kanye saying something about him. Like, what? That alone shows you where his mind is. Are you kidding me?”Jay-z stated in a recent interview with the Associated Press in reference to Kayne’s notorious remarks that many claim to portray George bush in a racist light.
In 2005, right after the Katrina disaster, Kanye claimed George Bush “doesn’t care about black people” on na tional television . In 2010 Bush wrote about that Yeezy diss moment in his memoir, “Decision Points”, saying it was “disgusting” and it was his lowest point during presidency. Shortly after Bush’s book was released, Kanye apologized saying “he didn’t have grounds calling him a racist”, and that he “didn’t choose the right words”. Bush acknowledged the apology stating he “appreciates it”, and he further softens the blow saying he “only cited Kanye West as an example”,and that “Kanye West wasn’t the only one talking like that during Katrina.”
Power player Jay-Z is bringing the controversey up again!
He recently told the Associated Press:
- “I 100 percent agreed with the comments that he made, because again … it felt like it was being done to black people,”
- “Like all you saw on the news was black people with help signs and all this stuff, and then you have this picture of the commander in chief, who we all rely on, just flying by”.
- “Just the fact that he thinks that the worst thing that happened to him is Kanye saying something about him. Like, what? That alone shows you where his mind is. Are you kidding me?”
And about 3 weeks ago he went on Howard Stern’s radio show stating:
- “It was bad timing, but it was absolutely an honest emotion. We all felt like that. We didn’t feel like Katrina was a natural disaster; we felt like it was an attack on black people. All you saw was black people on the roof with ‘help’ signs. … White people felt like that.”
It looks like Jay-z is really trying to get his point across!
