George Bush Kanye West

Reacts to West apology

11 Nov, 2010

Bush says he is glad to hear that West has had a change of heart after calling him racist. Bush say many Americans perceived him as uncaring and apparently detached from the disaster, and that hurt him deeply.

I appreciate that. It wasn’t just Kanye West who was talking like that during Katrina. I am not a hater. I don’t hate Kanye West. I was talking about an environment in which people were willing to say things that hurt. Nobody wants to be called a racist, if in your heart you believe in equality of race.
