'George Bush doesn't care about black people'

Courtesy of Crooks and Liars [VIDEO], Kanya West is sickened by what he sees:

"I hate the way they portray us in the media... If you see a black family it says they are looting if you see a white family it says they are looking for food."
"We already realize a lot of the people that could help are at war now fighting another way and they’ve given them permission to go down and shoot us."
"George Bush doesn't care about black people."
Unsurprisingly, these remarks were edited from the delayed West Coast broadcast...
UPDATE (from comments): "I live in Seattle, and saw the whole program, including Kanye's rant, every word of it. I kept reading that the later, west coast version was edited, but well, it wasn't edited here in Seattle."
