"Outspoken rap artist Kanye West criticized U.S. President George Bush last night on a TV concert aimed at raising money for victims of Katrina. Appearing in a segment with Canadian Mike Myers, Kanye slammed Bush for his reaction to the crisis saying "George Bush doesn't care about black people.” He also said that America is set up "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible." West was supposed to be reading from a teleprompter but deviated from the script. His comments were edited out for the West coast airing three hours later." [Much Music]
