Recentky, at a concert he stated to the audience that Chris Brown, Michael Phelps, Michael Jackson, and even OJ Simpson were good people.
Do you think this gives our youth the message that it is OK to break rules/laws and socially acceptable to do so? Again, taking accountability away?

He is OK.
I personally like M.Phelps. The good things what he is doing for less fortunate kids in Baltimore and all over the U.S are good things. And I like his honesty about his mistakes. He is great athlete.

I don't think anyone in Hollywood is a good role model.

No, actually I find Kanye West a presumptive arrogant racist. He is a part of the problem, by keeping the hate alive. Stating that President Bush doesn't like black people, he perpetuated the hatred and anger many had about a natural disaster that had nothing to do with Bush. He is like any other attention hungry entertainer that will say or do anything to get press or the spotlight. If my child came home and told me that he thinks what KW said is correct, I would ask them to clarify their answer and state facts that support their belief. IMO, he is a loser that is trying to stay A list, and that only lasts so long.

I don't care who else said things, this question is in reference to Kanye West, not Barbara Bush. I think most people have diarrhea of the mouth. They say things about subjects they don't know much about. And the last time I heard something racist from KW was during the telethon when he perpetuated the hate towards our President. I wouldn't bother listening to a loser like that afterward. His comment didn't help, what possible reason did he have to say it other than to segregate our nation? Maybe he is working undercover for Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. Perhaps Rev. Wright? They are all racists that would be out of business if we all just learned to get along.
