Kanye West vs President Bush


"I hate the way they portray us in the media.  "If you see a black family it says they are looting if you see a white family it says they are looking for food.  

"We already realize a
lot of the people that could help are at war now fighting another way
and they’ve given them permission to go down and shoot us."

"George Bush doesn’t care about black people."

“Cambodian Baby Hawkapoo”



NYTimes: "Maddox, the adopted son of Angelina Jolie, is a regular face in the
pages of Star and Us Weekly, and in the way of so many trends born in
the pages of celebrity magazines, he has done for Mohawks what Harry
Potter did for round spectacles. He made them trendy, starting a
