    I like that sweater.

    Anyway, Obama called Kanye a "jackass."

    I wonder if Obama hates black people too [​IMG]


    Haha. Seriously? That's like the first thing Obama's said in a while that I can actually agree with.

    so true. but who's trace adkins?

    A major country singer--perhaps best known for "Honky Tonk Be-Donk-a-Donk." He has actually published a book of his political and social musings. He definitely has the look of a man who is not to be trifled with.

    I can only speculate on what would have happened had Beyonce won and some burly male country music star--say, someone like Trace Adkins or Toby Keith--had wrested the microphone from her and proclaimed Taylor to be a more deserving winner. Somehow, I think the level of public outrage and indignation would have been far higher.
    And it probably wouldn't have been on Fox news nearly as much, it goes both ways. It's on O'Reilly again tonight. I think him and Hannity get a hard on at the chance to attack any r&b artist.

    The best part about these Kanye episodes is that it gives white people a chance to stick their head out of white suburbia, wag their finger at that no-good scoundrel thug that "Kayne West" is, and return to their perfect white-picket fence, 2.5-kid lives.

    Obama doesn't care about white people!

    These types of incidents almost always spark conversations online and in day-to-day live among people who have no idea who the guy is, other than he is an entertainer. This usually leads to sweeping generalizations about the guy, which unfortunately, tend to be based on race. I've seen the word "thug" attached to him for this incident. Kanye's a lot of things you wouldn't want to be, but a thug isn't one of them. Those who actually believe that are probably the same people who don't interact with people of other races very often.

    Wow, someone who doesnt know someone else is talking shit about them and judging them.
    It's like what happens every second of every day with every situation.

    Kanye's like a little kid, I watched Leno last night and he acted similarly to how you would expect a 12 yr old to act when they're being told they did something wrong. He sat on the couch and pouted.

    Touche. I stand by my original point, though. I'm seeing too many people hit Kanye with racial generalizations. Call him an egomaniac, arrogant, immature. Those are all apt descriptions. But "thug" is certainly not one of them. Comments like that come off as uninformed and hint at a misunderstanding, if not fear of the culture at large Kanye represents.
