THERE IS NO Pre-Kardashian Kanye!!! There is ONLY-Post-Kanye-Said-President-Bush-Doesn't-Care-About-Black-People-On-Live-TV-and-They-Killed-His-Mom-As-A-Slap-On-The-Wrist-Kanye-West! The majority of you don't even have the balls to say this to a coworker!
Let me refresh your memory: On Sept. 2, 2005, during a live nationally televised telethon (with 8.5M viewers, 8,500,000) benefit for victims of Hurricane Katrina Kanye West went off script. "I hate the way they portray us in the media. If you see a black family, it says they’re looting. See a white family, it says they’re looking for food. And you know that it’s been five days, because most of the people are black. 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. And just to imagine if I was—if I was down there and those are my people down there. So anybody out there that wants to do anything that we can help with the set-up, the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible, I mean, this is—Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of the people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way, and they’ve given them permission to go down and shoot us. Pres Bush doesn't care about Black People." #NeverForget#Infamous#Legand#Genius#BlackLivesMatter#FreeKanye#Kanye2020#HipHopIsDead#BlackThoughtFreestyle#PreKardashianKanye#ThisWasKanye#FreeKanye#wakeup#FunkFlex#FunkMasterFlex#HurricaneKatrina#NOLA#Sheeple
#tbt Charity Hospital in January of 2011, severely flooded and ultimately abandoned after Hurricane Katrina. @g.vas and I spent many long hours documenting the demise of this icon for the State of Louisiana, and the harrowing dark halls still are still fresh in my memory. #charityhospital#neworleans#hurricanekatrina#fema
