So I finally watched the Kanye/Taylor Swift thing
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 02:16 PM by harried helga
OMG--he totally dissed and humiliated that poor girl! And you know what? I hate to say this but I feel he was being a reverse racist! Taylor is blonde and presumably blue-eyed and Beyonce is a sista and she lost and so...he goes up there and negates Taylor's win? WTF?! She is so poised and mature for a teen. Although I don't listen to popular music, I think she's a wonderful role model.

3. I edited the name. Got a real comment or are blondes allowed to be humiliated
on your planet? (And this coming from a brunette.)

6. And I think you're cute as hell
Wandering from the Kiddie Table to hold court with grownups. It's adorable, makes me want to pinch your cheeks.

Blow it out yer ass, Beckite.

I think it's just that Kanye West is a massive asshole and has no problem proving it by constantly opening his mouth.

It's not the first time he's made an idiot of himself at an awards show. I think they keep inviting his drunk ass back in the hopes that he'll pull it off again.

Oh and IBTL and see ya

8. I'm sure the high 5s at freeperville are making you feel better
However, Kanye was just plain old rude and mean. His problems go beyond racism and he has plenty of them.

But good try.

I will say that Taylor handled the whole mess with a lot of grace and class. I really admire how she handled the whole thing - Beyonce too.

14. +1. I'm amazed people still don't know this.
Racism is racism, it doesn't matter the race at which it's directed.

21. The troll is probably a racist.
So... it's in their interest to ignore facts that don't support their racism.

15. Nice try, Helga.
Jimmy Carter's comments got you and your pals a bit upset? Oh, and the judge threw out Taitz' birther bullshit, too. Wow, it's been a bad few days, huh?

17. If anything, it was misogyny
First he interrupted one woman who was getting an award and second, it was like he felt Beyonce needed big bad Kanye to fight her battles. Both the women showed grace and dignity. He behaved like an ass.

18. For most of our history old, fat, white guys expected to be given spots in government
and spots most everywhere else because they were old, fat, white guys and
one of their own was President. Now we have a black man in the white house
& one or two people expect everything should come their way & why should that
be a surprise to some of you? Could be they finally feel a little empowered?

25. What a bit o' crap.
And I will now make my only comment on the whole fiasco. Beyonce was a class act all the way, as she always is. And of course, she won the award she wanted in the end, she got the rose she smelled like, and that is what a star does. Kanye? Every bit of press he gets is attached to someone else he has dragged in. Co-option of that which is not his is his M.O. with the press. He gets an F, while both of the women get As for enduring with grace.

30. Racism is racism of any stripe. He would be a racist, were it his motive, but that is at least
mitigated by his apologies. He has done a lot of damage I think, but no one is above redemption.

31. It was not reverse racism...it was Kanye West being his regular idiotic self
And Beyonce showed class by bringing Taylor Swift back to the stage with her at the end.
