Default Kayne West: If it wasn't for mutts we wouldn't have Video girls

Rapper KANYE WEST has stirred up another controversy regarding race after making comments about the offspring of racially mixed couples. West made headlines when he declared that US PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH didn't care about black people during a telethon raising funds for Hurricane Katrina victims. And the GOLD DIGGER singer has caused a stir again in the January (07) issue of Essence magazine by commenting on bi-racial babies. He says, "If it wasn't for race mixing there'd be no video girls. Me and most of our friends like mutts a lot. Yeah, in the hood we call 'em mutts!"

yeah, it's out of line...but please don't tell me that's more offensive than any of the other name's used to describe women! artist for years have called women: ho's, b*tches, sl*ts, etc. and now bi-racial women are outraged for being called mutts? honestly, there's bigger issues to worry about than some artist calling bi-racial women mutts.

Kanye West is an ass hole for more reasons than this. I've never liked the guys music, he's just an annoying person all around.

Actually it runs deeper than that. He might aswell have said all non mixed black women are ugly. That's what it sounds like to me anyways.

So what if he stated that?! It's just a matter of personal preference. One man's opinion! Look, I enjoy some of Kanye's music, but that's as far as it goes. His opinion won't change my views. He's an entertainer. Nothing more, nothing less.

So what if he said that? Just because you only care about things that are shallow doesn't mean everybody else does. The fact of the matter he runs off his trap about how so and so doesn't care about black people. And he does?

The comments he makes suggest otherwise. I guess part of it is that he just wants to be hip and spew off stuff to please his lame white fans. But still, he shouldn't talk about people not caring about black people when he doesn't care about them either.

He's just another reason why modern "music" blows.

I know you'll probably tell me he raised funds and did such and such... But's all part of hype and politics.
