george bush don’t like black people

When i first heard Kanye West say “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” my jaw dropped. It was so bold and yet went straight to the heart of what everyone felt. One of the things i love most about the hip-hop community is that they take events and mix it into song, remixing culture and sounds in a way that goes straight to the point. Earlier today, Xeni told me about The Legendary K.O. remix called George Bush Don’t Like Black People. Not only are the words poignant, the song itself is beautiful and filled of southern black sounds. If you haven’t listened to this yet, please do. It’s amazing.

    fuck ur mom younggenius, u are not a genius you shit. If u were u would have realized Christanity is not real! Wheres the proof, there is no magic today so why would there have been back there. If God loves everyone why was he so mad at adam and eve if hes supposed to be forgiving. If he fucking loves everyone why do innocent people die all the time. This whole jesus god thing is a load of ballshit

    i think this video shows that artists have nothing better to do than make fun of people like bush or anyone else for that matter.

    i really think black people should go to hell!!!!

  • shah

    white people wonder why people call them devils.
    i been all over the world and i must admit. i have never met so many down right hateful people in my life. if a little poor blue eyed white boy was walking alone in Compton and went into the most Ghetto craziest black family’s home he would get fed and helped if not one or the other. but if a starving boy went into a racist hateful skin head kkk white home he would get seriously hurt if not killed! thats the truth. black people have a lot of anger inside. they are not hateful people towards other races. the only people blacks hate are themselves. and they have the White folks to thank for that. The most dangerous people in the world are educated blacks who stick together. and i don’t mean terrorist dangerous i mean a threat to white domination of this world. thats why the Black Panther Party Was Slautered.

  • You our immature

    I hear how everyone is blaming Bush for Katrina, and yet it seems as if the local and state goverment get scotch off the hook. How do you explain Bush calling the Governor (a democrat) of the state saying, “Start evacuating” a week before the hurricane and yet his repeated advice was ignored. So could it be that Blanco hates black people or maybe playing politics is more important then the safety of her own people?

    “Also in response to Bush letting black people die because he doesn’t care about them, here is part of an article, Statistics released by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals suggest that fewer than half of the victims of Hurricane Katrina were black, and that whites died at the highest rate of all races in New Orleans.” below is the link

    What makes me sad is all the rage I hear here. I keep hearing Kanye West is right, Bush hates black people, and yet no one says ONE word to back any of this up…it’s all just subjective this is how I feel and everyone else feels (have you interviewed everyone else?) and is not discussion worthy of intelligent people.

    And no I don’t hate black people…I do hate being told that because I’m white I hate black people. Stopping racism does not start by accusing everyone of being racist and telling us what we owe you.

    Evry1 thought he was until the Game dissed him and G Unit. 50 tried to ignore it and dis nas, fat joe etc. When they did try and do diss track (300 Shots) It was more about shooting than dissing the game. 50 said “I dont know why everyone has this image that im a gangstsa”. 50 admitted he doesnt drink either . now he is copying snoop dogg as most of his tracks on ,the massacre, are about prostitues. If u wanna hear the diss tracks go to google and type ln listen to

    G Unit: 300 Shots

  • Embassy

    This is so stupid. About Black slaves, many blacks are not nearly 50 percent African. Also Africa is a continent. I mean what if you are from South Africa, East Africa, etc… Also Native Africans have different cultures then do blacks. Black people come from Eastern Africa to be specific. They are morish people. Now, this racism thing is getting out of hand. It is funny how many people make such racist comments. Also prove to me how God is not real you atheists?

  • Joe

    check this out. christianity has been polluted over hundreds of years with rich powerful (yes predominatly white men) to make the bible work for themselves so it looks like the bible is for white people. and for the people that believe in science note the way civilizations of the different ages have advanced. africa which is where alot of black people are from (or all i dont know because im not black and i dont feel its my responsibility to find every racial origin to rectify my stance of not being racist) the african civilizations WERE owning back in the day. they had all the good stuff. it was “their” time (their not meaning black people but different kingdoms and tribes in that region) now their peak has passed and the way of nature has said it is other regions (predominatly white but much racial diversion) “their” time to shine. i dont even feel like explaining this so i will say. look between the lines of the lines. dont just listen to the news or music or anything trying to impose their belief or way of thinking. analyze and study what you see. learn what to look for. because with 6 billion people on this earth the most ever in human population. name 3 reputible philisophers. worldwide there is a fight against enlightenment and understanding for yourself. peace and remember marijuana is not a drug

  • joe

    one more thing. african-american native-american oriental-american. wouldnt it sound better if it was just american. lookat all even you have been brainwashed into believing your not a full american but half and half. so stop all the dumb shit we are all americans i say cheap gas good weed and always always plenty good mouth in the morning

  • JB

    If god is real why did 9/11 happen. wny was London bombed. why is their no proof of his existence. why does the church own a third of the worlds gold. why is their so many other religons. science is real as it is proven. christianity was started by enterprueners to get rich seeing as they keep changing the bible as well (old and new testament, eye for eye and tooth for tooth has been removed) It was started by people to get rich. and it will not last the forthcoming centuries. so shut the fuck up, you controlled and mislead christians

  • cindy

    i am doin a project in school about bush and i let my teacher hear the song she got pissed

  • joe

    i would like everyone to look at the us map when the election was happening. remember the blue and red states. now look up the average IQ of that state. once you do that proceed to like my nuts dumbasses cause im tired of this stupid shit. the same people that are all against this shit and saying bush is racist are the same people that openly diss white people. caynne west and a lot of black rappers. not that i care because i listen to it but for god sakes get your head out of your asses stop watching the news cause who believes that shit anyway.

    To the person who commented that all Black people should once again be enslaved, you need intense prayer. To those of you who questions God’s existance because of national disasters both natural and man made…maybe God is trying to get our attention as a nation. For those of you who think that George Bush does care about black people, when meeting with the congressional black congress (cbc), he commented that he didn’t know anything about the extension of the voting rights act, why would he place a reef on Dr. King’s tomb and then sign legistation taking away from affirmative rights the same day, as if he’s tap dancing on Dr. King’s legacy. If he cares so much about black people, why did come to New Orleans only after the residents had been evacuated, as though he couldn’t embrace them as he did their white counterparts in Mississippi and Alabama. Yes, local and state government has a hand in the entire Katrina fiasco, but there are circumstance that made Bush look at best suspect in this entire situation. People of any color like to feel as though their leaders care, with Katrina and many black issue, I beg to differ with those who say Mr. Bush cares, it’s evident that he doesn’t.

    we’re in the 21st century right? OK good just checkin because the way some people are talking here it seems like the 19th century. Anthony? don’t be hatin’. especially not on basis of race. Black people should be going back to slavery? That’s got to be one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard.

  • me

    not everything is about race. and guess what…white people deal with racism too, everyone is hated by someone and we’re not getting anywhere in the world with people like Kanye West leading the way.

  • unknown

    Oh fu…ing yes. the black people are always the innocent ones who get blamed for everything and face racism everyday. i agree with everyone else. GO back to being enslaved, you resentful, unthankful, unworthy 1/2 humans that are the reason why there is such racism in the world. i have to deal with all the ballshit from the fu…ing slaves whether i like it or not. in fact, i have experienced and seen more racism from your effing asse..s than all the white people in the world combined. (that includes the kkk.) hope they come back one day and fulfill your destiny to serve. go back to slavery!!!

  • How SAD!

    IT IS REALLY SAD TO SEE HOW PEOPLE HERE AND MORE PLACES TREAT ONE ANOTHER. How ignorance is loudly praised through comments and our actions. MOST OF THE PEOPLE POSTING THE BULL-SHIT HERE DON’T HAVE THE BALLS TO SAY THE SHIT THEY SAY TO ANOTHER’S FACE. ALL OF THESES INTERNET GANGSTERS BY NIGHT, AND SUIT AND TIE BY DAY.

    YALL A JOKE. YALL COME ON THESE WEBSITES AND SAY ALL OF THIS SHIT. BUT IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THIS….IF YOU DON’T LIKE THEY WAY SHIT IS RUN, GET OFF OF YOUR SORRY SELFISH ASSES AND WORK MUTHA-FUCK’N TOGETHER.

  • niggers

    nigger means ignorant in the dictionary, blacks were given this name because that is what they are(some execptions because there are some cool black people). Our nation was great before all these libral equality ballshit happened. Slavery should still happen(its in the bible and its ok as long as you don’t beatthem vigorously). Why would white people randomly name blacks ignorant??? they naturaly are, that kinda raciest but true

  • chelsey

    kanye west was completley correct when he said george bush dont’ like black people. It is the truth, when you think about it and pay close attention, the only people left in new orleans were black. it makes perfect sense. And any of you that think he was out of line need to do some more reasearch on the history of black people in america…

  • people like niggers obviously dont have black friends or has never associated with a black person anyways white people are the most ignorant especially those who dont know the plight of blacks in this country like the white individual named niggers and GOD does exist and christianity is real because the DaVinci code is just a movie dont believe everything you watch idiots!

  • Sue

    I am so sick of white people who are afraid to admit their feeling about niggers. I am not talking about blacks, I am talking about niggers. Those who are so ignorant that just speaking proper English requires their full brain capacity(which is at an all time low, hence Ebonics). Those who barely maintain minimum wage jobs while spawing little baby niglets that they will not take care of. If George Bush does hate them, it will be the only time that I ever agree with George Bush.

  • ifknowledgeispoweralotofyallrweak.....

    Whats so funny about admitting things is how u stupid white women get raped by ya own white man then blame a nigger for it . everything you say is reverse psychology basicly you say we are’nt smart when truth of the matter we created everything including the so called style you have from your make up to your irrigation system all which was brought to europe by a black man . I wanna kno somethin else how come when a child or woman is raped its by a white man ? even preists are participating in this sick act thats bout one of the few things yall created rape and homosexuality truth of the matter we created everything look at the so called dark ages for the euro peons i mean europeans yall started taking baths in the 15th century A.D. u wanna kno who taught yall ? read ya history then afterwards thank us for geometry , alphabets , make up , fashion , universities , use of iron , domesticating animals to hunt , vaseline ,irrigations , the first clock , time of day and night , astrology ( without a telescope i might add ) not to mention everything else i dont feel like naming but since u have the internet u can find out yaself i kno the truth hurts but it comes with living . not to mention science which somebody commeted a while back science proves that there is a God and none of this came into place without him save your ignorant remarks and learn a few things before u make yaself sound like a hill billy happy to have awol . o yea and our so called nations capitol Washington D.C is designed just like Egypt from every statue . So when yall say you HATE US i see why .Not mention how trifiling yall were in the slave days a white woman would let her slave BREAST FEED her baby though we ‘re animals in their eyes right , not to mention the raping this so called holy man and purest of God children patricipated in . I got one question if we’re so much animals how come is it our continent is known as the cradel of civilazation . Last i checked yall were in the caves barely living with no kind of common knowledge what so ever and to this day yall are still showing your cave man roots with your lack of train of thought and ya child pornography and rapists ways towards Your women and ours . You cant erase history you can only cover it up and hope noone ever stumbles upon it …..

  • LOL

    In regards to the last comment. That was the most ridiculous comment out of all of them. It was great for amusement if it makes you feel better though. You sounded like a kid that just got in trouble and now is desperate to try and come up with an excuse to cover it up and get out of it. You obviously aren’t the brightest crayon in the box with your falsified, incomplete (many important details you seemed to have left out) history lesson. Not to mention your extremely horrible grammar since you are trying to portray yourself to be such an ntelligent person. Just remember, it is because of these ignorant white people why you are here in America with all the freedom and rights you have today. If it weren’t for those ignorant white people, you would still be living in poverty with your National Geographic titties hanging out and 30 gold bracelets going up your neck. There is no denying that fact!

  • ronsgyrl

    This is my first time visiting this site I cant believe what Im reading. It almost makes me want to cry. I am a PROUD BLACK WOMAN and I love everyone and every race because the bible says so and because I was taught so. We will be judged for our actions, thoughts, and the things we say when we die so I ask GOD to forgive everyone for the negative thing said on this site we are all created equal. I have been called nigger before but whites dont say it to your face they say it from far away but I ignore them they just want to get a rise out of you. I just think we should stop the hate and love one another as God so loves you and even though I know this will not happen anytime soon I just pray in the mean time.

  • thinblackduke

    i’ve heard so many comments, some correct, some way off the wall….the truth is, i am a 28 yrd old black male, and i am disgusted at the level of ignorance most black portray…if kanye west truly cared about the katrina victims, why wasn’t he down there? why weren’t any black celebrities down there, instead they were bitchin about a racist conspiracy. if i recall, bush warned mayor nagin several days before the storm hit, but i think nagin purposely waited until the last minute to make it that it was bush’s fault….which means he was more interested in playing the race card than saving the lives of millions….another thing, why are brad pitt, angelia jolie, jessica simpson, and george clooney doing something to help africa but not those rappers….but they’re supposedly ‘black’ and if you don’t listen to their garbage called rap music then you are an uncle tom or a sellout….i am not a bigot, i call it down the middle, black people are the most negative thinking, ignorant, selfish people on planet earth….not all the blacks, but the overwhelming majority of them….when i grew up in a white neighborhood, i was treated far better by the whites than i was by the blacks in the next neighborhood….white people are nicer, are more positive, have more interests, have more fun, and if you need any help, whites will help you ten times faster than blacks….i have had relations with both black and white women, and i would rather date a white woman than a black one….black women are just overweight, bigoted, stupid, and unattractive…..i have always favoured whites over blacks ever since i was a child, and i will always favour whites over blacks…..as regards to kanye west, fuck him, and fuck the rest of those rappers and the morons that love them….at the end of the day, only whites matter….
    p.s. white women are just so much better looking than black women….blue eyed blondes rule!!!

  • Patrick Daley

    I agree with whoever said Kanye was way out of line. Kanye West is the most self-centered, ignorant rapper out there. Im not saying that every rapper is like him, because I listen to a lot of underground rap and its awesome. Whoever stayed in New Orleans when they saw that the huge 250 mph hurricane was coming straight at them deserved to get hit. Dont complain if you think that they were too poor to move out of new orleans, fuckin walk! The blacks are good at running it shouldve been easy for them. The Slave Trade ended a long time ago, I think that the blacks should be thankful that Abe Lincoln helped in abolishing the slave trade and that the slave trade is not around today. If you think that I am totally racist, youre wrong because I really am not. 60 years ago the Jews were victimized in the holocaust, which led to 6 million jews dead. That was 60 years ago and the jews have picked themselves up and are now stereotypically known as the “rich ones.” If the blacks werent ignorant, bitchy, and lazy, then they wouldve picked themselves up like the jews, but because they are ignorant, bitchy, and lazy, that hasnt happened.

  • Patrick Daley again

Black people are the scum of the earth, and if I ever I see one, I will personally rip off their ape like hands and ram them up their arseholes, into they start melting (i.e – shit themselves). BRING BACK CONCNETRATION CAMPS! and rather than do jsut jews, save your time and money and make it a coon camp too. and bonus if you catch any black jews. now im off to burn down the orphanage, cos i already got their parents. i love you

  • white pride

    to whites power,
    it’s sad to believe that your race is better than black just because their skin and appearance is different.You may want to call them all kind of evil things and look at them with hate in your eyes. If you encounter one, you would love to hurt that person; just because they may speak their mind about how they feel about living in America. Yes, black people are the same spiece as you; scienctist have proven this fact, like it or not. You hold your head up when one past and say that “it should go hell for all the evil they done to whites.” You said that “God hate darkness but love whitness and God agree with slavery and treating black with disrespect just because their ignorant, bitchy,lazy,and they deserve it.”You would love to believe that all black think and act like each other because that would make all the steotypes you put on the black race true. I know down in your heart and mind, YOU KNOW there is something wrong about the beliefs in God and American values.I know that most white Americans disaproved of Bush’s ways and alot of WHITES don’t want to believe in GOD.I know most you thank your God for not making you black, because OF all the steotypes that been labling the black community. If you were black, you would hate yourself knowing all races around YOU LOOK DOWN ON YOU,AND THE MEDIA CONTINUELY TELLING YOU HOW WORTHLESS YOU ARE, UGLY,STUPID,MEAN,NIGGER,MONKEY AND LOOK HOW SORRY YOU ARE,EACH AND EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE!!! EVEN IF YOU DO HAVE A GOOD CAREER AND MAKING GOOD MONEY TO SUPPORT YOUR FAMILY.THE ONLY REAL SIN YOU DONE WAS BEING BORN.

  • B.O.W.N

    Brotherhood Of a White Nation has wrote the following:

    Every dog has its day, the blacks were freed and granted their civil rights. The whites now are the most discriminated race in the world. The B.O.W.N share no hatred for any race, but its morals are based on beliefs that in American civilization, white reigns as superior dominance. White supremacy groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, Aryans, skinheads or neo-nazis express their views through hatred, which appears to be their decline in power. The black race gain their power through their folklore stories, rap music, and television dramas about how the black race has risen to its top by ancient history. The white race can do the same thing by displaying the wonders that we have introduced to the world…the telephone, invention of electricity, computer technology etc..Look on your local Department of Corrections websites and see what race is primarily mentioned, the blacks or the whites. But NAACP and other civil rights groups dismiss all of that as ‘poverty’. However, it is all dismissed as hatred, racism, and murder when it is someone of the white race! Remember white brothers and sisters, hatred only drains energy that you could use another day against social parasites who are destroying the nation white civilization has created. When you hear or see the southern slogan “The south will rise again”, remember that one day the B.O.W.N will make that mean something.

    George Bush doesn’t care about black people and neither did Bill Clinton.
    Any problems that the American Black community have can not be attributed to the race. One does not have to look farther than Canada to see that is true.
    In Canada and Europe black people do just as well as white people, we are all in the same human family.
    The welfare system and drug laws were created to break up families, keep blacks uneducated and in poverty forever.
    You must rise up against this system that enslaves you!
