    Kanye West: 'I Understand' How President George W. Bush Feels

    After Bush reveals the 'worst moment' of his presidency was when the rapper called him racist, West -- who faced the same criticism after ambushing Taylor Swift -- says he's "more open now."

    Kanye West says he feels for George W. Bush, who writes in his new memoir that the worst moment of his presidency was when the rapper called him a racist for his slow reaction to Hurricane Katrina.

    "I definitely can understand the way he feels, to be accused of being a racist in any way, because the same thing happened to me, you know, I got accused of being a racist," West said Wednesday in an interview with Houston radio station 97.9 (via Gawker), referring to his infamous ambush of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV VMAs.

    "I definitely can understand the way he feels, to be accused of being a racist in any way, because the same thing happened to me," West says.

    "For both situations, it was basically a lack of compassion that America saw in that situation," continued West. "With him, it was a lack of compassion of him not rushing, him not taking the time to rush down to New Orleans. For me, it was a lack of compassion of cutting someone off in their moment.




    "But nonetheless, I think we're all quick to pull a race card in America," West went on. "And now I'm more open, and the poetic justice that I feel, to have went through the same thing that he went [through]-and now I really more connect with him on just a humanitarian level.

    And really..this amounts to a hill of beans, why?

    I was pretty shocked that President Bush even mentioned Kayne West.

    Maybe in US text-books it will be different, but for the world Bush will be remembered as the representative of the Bible Belt and the Christian fundamentalist who started a war against all rationality and who accelerated the US's retreat from its invulnerable position as the sole Superpower.

    Maybe because he's a human being. And, as a non racist, to be publicly called a racist in such a public way must have been very hurtful for him.

    I respect Kayne for understanding how stupid he was to say it.

    I doubt that he will. I doubt he'll ever be top 10, but he won't be among the worst.... simply because he wasn't.

    And all fueled by an unnecessary war that cost a trillion dollars and over 4,000 dead American soldiers. :evil:
