I think youll find this describes Kanye pretty well.
Racism’s Double Standard, By Rudy Gersten
September 19, 2005
Kanye West is a racist. Not that this should come as a newsflash to anyone who has ever listened to his music. West’s new album Late Registration just debuted at number one on the billboard charts, selling 860,000 copies in its first week. But the press has largely given the hip hop star a pass for his outrageous comments during an NBC telethon for Hurricane Katrina victims. As most Americans now know, the hugely successful rapper claimed that the government was sending troops to New Orleans not to help those in need but to “shoot us” and accused President Bush of not caring about blacks. But the fact that West is himself a racist must not be overlooked, or, as is the case with the mainstream media, completely ignored.
You won’t find any criticism of West on MTV, which has aired numerous documentaries in the past attacking hate speech, including questioning white rapper Eminem’s anti-homosexual lyrics. But MTV and other outlets apparently have no problem with West’s referring to whites as “the devil” or his claim that when a drug dealer buys Jordans and a “crack head buy crack…the white man get paid.” Funny, I don’t recall getting any royalty checks from local crack sales last month.
In a hit song off West’s new album, he degrades a black man who leaves his woman for “a white girl.” And in a recent interview with Stuff Magazine, West said he doesn’t believe white people should be "allowed to use slang until it is at least a year old.” Say what? Seventy percent of hip hop albums are bought by whites. But apparently West believes the majority of his fans shouldn’t be allowed to sing along to his tunes.
Racial demagogues like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have always had a public forum. Their bigoted records are somehow irrelevant to the reporters assigned to cover them. Jackson compared the scene at the New Orleans Superdome to that of a “hull of a slave ship” and his comment went almost completely unchallenged in the press. There is something fundamentally wrong with how nearly all of the media ignores comments like these. The Kanye West example shows us what we already know, that if you are black and famous you have a license to say anything you want and you will never be held accountable for it.
During his bumbling rant on NBC, West actually called himself a hypocrite for complaining and said he went “shopping before giving a donation.” While NBC did attempt to disassociate itself from West’s assertion that the president of the United States does not care about black people, no one has bothered to ask the question of why Kanye West was invited on an NBC telethon to begin with. When a major television network gives a platform to someone who has made a career out of rapping about the evils of white people, no one should be surprised when he uses that opportunity to spew more of his pitiful ignorance.
West, the son of a Black Panther, is never criticized about his racist lyrics by any of the outlets that have helped make him famous. Silent on the issue are MTV, BET, hip hop radio stations, and even Time Magazine, whose recent cover story proclaimed West “the smartest man in pop music.” I can assure those at Time that Britney Spears, everyone’s favorite pop music airhead, knows more about the world than Kanye West. At least she likely doesn’t believe that “AIDS was a man made disease placed in Africa just like crack was placed in the black community to break up the Black Panther party,” as West told his fans during the Live 8 concerts this summer.
The double standard is understood throughout the country. When a famous white man says something racially insensitive, he is roundly criticized by all. And rightly so. There is absolutely no place for racism in society today. But when a famous black does the same, it’s acceptable. Racism should never be tolerated, whether you are a U.S. Senator or a rap star. Trent Lott knows this. As do David Duke, Jimmy the Greek, and John Rocker. They all found out the hard way. And Kanye West is no better. He should be held to the same standards they have been held to.
It’s time Americans treated black racism no different than white racism. There is simply no justification for either. So when a rapper preaches about the evils of white people, it’s time for us to cut his mic.

Man, these BCGs make me look like a complete idiot.
Not to be confused with fear which it often is.
1.I respect my kung fu teacher he is the toughest muthafucka I have ever met and could take on ( and even kill is he so wished ) many people at once but he only uses his skills for self defence and the defence of others, never for attack, he has great power but is responsible with that power and I respect him for that.
2. People fear Gangstaz they say they respect them because they fear them, they are scared to say they dont respect them because they fear what might happen to them if they go against them.
Fear and respect are not the same thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A man once said 'Religion is a tool the Devil uses to play man against himself'. Try not to take the 'Devil' part to seriously and imagine the Devil as a force and how the 'Devil' plays on emotions like insecurity. All religions believe they are right and all the other thousands of religions are wrong, the more people that believe in a certain religion the more they all feel they are right eg: if there was a religion with say only 5 members everyone would laugh there beliefs off without question but the more people that believe in something the more it is taken as genuine. Now when a large number of people believe in something different to what another large number of people believe it makes them feel insecure in the way of making them feel there might be a chance they might not be right. This is why you get religious wars, if the opposing people wont believe in what you do then you kill them and with them out of the way and no more opposing views, you feel secure again also a lot of religions recruit with fear eg: Catholics use the fear of hell and tell people that if you dont believe in what they do that is where you are going and they tell Catholic childern this from a very young age in an attempt to stop them from leaving the religion in later life. This is what has happened throughout history and will continue to happen if religion exists although a lot of religious poeple dont feel thretened by others there will always be the insecure ones that cant stand people believing in things they do, people should be able to believe in what they want as long as there a good person, people should be able to look at life and make there own decisions on what they want to believe, and kids should certainly not be brought up with there parents telling them what to believe, sure there parents can tell them what they believe but at the same time tell them they can believe whatever they want to believe in as long as they are a good person. Just remember most religions are nearly identical in there morals eg peace, love, charity etc its just the different ways of worship that divide them, and these are what calls all the wars which is so stupid if you think about it and worship is what devines a religion, so if you take out worship what do you have: 'Good Morals'. Religious people need to take there living morals seriously but have a less intense and serious approach to worship or things like: what happens when you die, is god a man or is god a not of sex, was Jesus really the sun of God or was he a prophet, none of these things really matter on a day to day basis its the living morals that really count.
Physicist and Nobel prizewinner Stephen Weinberg describes religion as an insult to human dignity. 'Without it,' he says, 'you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, it takes religion.'. It is more moral, he says, to do good for its own sake than out of fear. Morality, he says, is older than religion, and kindness and generosity are innate in human beings, as they are in other social animals. The irony is that science recognises the majesty and complexity of the universe while religions lead to easy, closed answers.
