Today marks the fourth anniversary of the day Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, Louisiana taking at least 1, 836 lives and causing an estimated $100 Billion in damage.

While I poke fun at our man Kanye West from time-to-time I still have to give him props for one of the ballsiest moves on live television I’ve ever witnessed, saying exactly what many of us were thinking that day:

“George Bush doesn’t care about Black people…”

While thousands of American citizens were driven from their homes, former President Bush was on vacation in Crawford, Texas. Three days later,  he flew over Alabama, New Orleans and Mississippi in Air Force One.  He didn’t actually  visit New Orleans and witness the destruction until September 2nd.

Thank You, Kanye
