Bush has forgiven Kanye West for calling him ‘racist’November 11th, 2010 - 2:37 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Nov 11 (ANI): Kanye West once said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” but it seems the Former US President has forgiven him for it.
In his new book, West said that Bush and he had patched things up a long time ago. He said on the Today Show Wednesday that he has “absolutely” forgiven the rapper.
West famously declared on the 2005 televised Concert for Hurricane Relief, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” blaming him for the reason that America helps “the less well-off as slow as possible.”
When Today’s Matt Lauer showed Bush a tape of West’s rant, Bush said, “I appreciate that. It wasn’t just Kanye West who was talking like that during Katrina. I cited him as an example. I cited others as well. I appreciate that,” reports USMagazine.
But he stressed that they have both moved on.
“I’m not a hater,” the former president said.
“I didn’t hate Kanye West. I was talking about an environment in which people were saying things that hurt. Nobody wants to be called racist if, in your heart, you believe in equality of race.” (ANI)
