HAT'S OFF TO KANYE!! & HARRY CONNICK!!

I KNOW MANY OF YOU CAN'T STAND HIM BUT THIS BROTHA IS ALRIGHT WITH ME. AMIDST A SEA OF BLACK MILLIONAIRES....HE'S THE ONLY ONE THAT WASN'T AFRAID TO SAY WHAT MOST BLACKS HAVE BEEN SAYING.

ON CAMERA, NO LESS......http://www.bet.com/Music/kanye+west+goes+off.htm?wbc_purpose=Basic&WBCMODE=PresentationUnpublished

KANYE, YOU WILL FOREVER HAVE A FAN IN ME.


HARRY CONNICK JR. (I'VE CRUSHED ON YOU SINCE THE BEGINNING), HAS BEEN SUCH A SUPERHERO THROUGH THIS. WHEN THE MARSALIS BROS (AS MUCH AS I LOVE THEM) WOULDN'T GO IN,....YOU WERE LIKE,..."F-IT, THAT'S MY HOME, THOSE ARE MY HOMIES AND THEY'VE BEEN GOOD TO ME....I'M GOING IN!" IF HARRY HADN'T BROUGHT THE CNN CAMERAS IN,....THE WORLD WOULDN'T HAVE KNOWN. THEY WOULD HAVE JUST CONTINUED TO BELIEVE IN FOX NEWS' OVER EMPHASIZING OF THE WHOLE "LOOTING THING!" THANKS HARRY!!!

EVEN THOUGH ALOT OF PEOPLE SAY YOU SUCK AND I THINK, AFTER THE FACT,...YOU PUNKED OUT A BIT,.....MAYOR NAGIN, THANKS FOR CUSSIN' FOLKS OUT ON WWL-AM AND GIVING PROPS WHERE THEY DESERVE.

WHY IS IT THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAS TO HAPPEN FOR PEOPLE TO SEE JUST HOW CORRUPT THIS COUNTRY IS? I LOVE LIVING IN THE FREE WORLD FOR ALL YOU (RIGHT WING NUTS OUT THERE) BUT THERE ARE SOME SHADY MUTHAS IN OFFICE. YOU KNOW WHO I MEAN.......

Jazz I'm always impressed by anyone in a position to make a difference or get the word out about a particular thing, cause etc. and Kanye did that and then some. Everyone doesn't have to agree but he had the nerve to say it.

I'm definitely proud of Kanye for going there. A lot of folks said that the aid should have been quicker and that we could have done better...folks agreed. But Kanye brought up the issue of RACE and a lot of folks ain't really ready to hear that, but c'mon we need to stop denying the role race is STILL playing in this country in EVERYTHING we do!

Kanye had the balls to say what so many of us were thinking.

3 cheers for Kanye...

Jazz,

From one jazz to another, I'm glad I found your site. I'm working my way through some of your past posts. Are there any that you could point me to that would give me a good handle on your blog?

I agree...I have a new respect for K and H. I think Nagin did the best he could and he can't be faulted for that in my opinion. We have to ask, could I have done any better if I was in his shoes? This guy was a cable exec before becoming mayor. He had no clue.
