Kanye West's comments

You've probably heard about 'em by now. He's certainly entitled to his opinion (just like he is about the origin of AIDS and crack cocaine), but the fact is that George W. Bush could have his DNA genetically altered to become of African descent, and African-Americans still wouldn't like him.

Spoken like the racist you are Hube. Even if the Bumbling Mr. Bush changed his DNA, he would still be an inept President, and a disastrous Commander in Chief. THAT's why people don't like him.

Actually, I didn't make that post, Susie. Try reading.

But I do share its sentiments and they're hardly "racist." After all, Bush has put more African-Americans in high government positions than his [Democratic] predecessors, and these folks are then pilloried as "not authentically black" -- mostly by blacks themselves. You want to find "racism"? Look there.

Now, go back to your intense hating carnival with Jason, Dana, et. al. ...

well spoken response, hube...a zinger opening, simple(so liberals can understand it), too the point, facts to back it up, and a zinger conclusion! The hatred of the left is beyond the pale and childish...

And Time magazine called this black racist the smartest man in music?

And par for the course for a Susan to call Rodney a racist for pointing out the racist pronouncements of a nutty black rapper.

I wonder if Susan would defend someone who declared that black Americans are out to infect our youth with AIDs and drug addiction?

Keep it coming, liberals. Looking forward to the continued marginalization of the Democratic Party and their racist spokespeople.

Just because "Bush" has put more African Americans in higher ranking positions does not mean that he cares about any minority one way or another. I agree in some ways with Kanye, not because I'm black, but because he had the guts to say what many people wanted to say. I am so sick and tired of people who put one or two black or hispanic people in their front office, and act as if they are doing us a favor. Tolerance is a more subdue form of racism. So tolerating us does not make him God's gift to the segregation movement.
Furthermore, I am a young liberal, and for all of my conservatives and so called christians, what does being gay or straight have anything to do with the ecnonomy or this so called war on terror. How dare some of you picket and hold up signs saying that god hate's gays. You are defeating the purpose of being a Christian. God doesn't hate anyone. Who are you to tell anyone who they can sleep with or who they can't. You shold know that God is a forgiving God. You need to concentrate on cleaning out your own closets.

Well, there are some whites saying some similarly 'gutsy things' about New Orleans black population and leadership that many people have wanted to say. Normally hateful racist remarks are condemned, but maybe we should do as you and admire their guts for speaking out.
