It seems like there might be new “not so productive” controversy regarding racism here.

Do you remember that Kanye West said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” back in 2005, resulting from the President’s handling of Hurricane Katrina?

In George Bush’s memoir, “Decision Points,” to be released next Tuesday, Bush writes the charges flung at him that he was a racist during the Katrina crisis “was the worst moment of my presidency.”

Bush discussed the incident in an interview on NBC’s “Matt Lauer Reports” on November 8th at 8 P.M. EST, while promoting his book.

    That statement was 100% George W. Bush. His lowest moment was when his personal honor was insulted. Not 9/11. Not the collapse of the economy. In his hubris and ignorance Bush continues to remind us why he was the probably the worst president the United States has ever had.

    Kanye was somewhat off-base in his accusations, however. Bush has no particular preference for poor White people versus poor Black people. His particular type of color blindness sees only the green of money.
