i guess taylor swift selling more country albums worldwide than any other country artist male or female didn't qualify her for the award. and because she's white, FOX NEWS will keep this in their "PLAY IT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN FILE"

Kanye has been put out of touch with reality by his own fame.

Jackarse doesn't even begin to cover it.

While I agree with Obama, I think it's funny that Obama is now the go to guy whenever a black person does something stupid. IE Gov Patterson

OMG that was friggin hilarious!

Did'nt he say Bush was the devil on tv before also? What other mindless crap will spew out of this idiot's piehole, good god man. They should never let him on tv again, he's an embarassment to himself and everyone unfortunate enough to be there with him.

Wasn't Kanye one of the first ones to put his comments out there about how excited he was that Obama won the election? I wonder what he thinks about him now?!?!?!? Too funny!!

I guess Kanye interrupted Obama too during his health care speech, scandalous.

I want to hear some of the artists criticising him, like Jay Z, Snoop, Pharell or somebody. But I'm sure they won't. He is a twat, what's so special about him anyway? He just does some crap rap over a sample of somebody else's music.

Haha that was awesome.

Kanye is a bit of a jackass, the Pres. got this one right.

His mother Donda used to be a client at an old job of mine, she was a very nice woman - don't blame her!

I wonder if theres any backlash at NBC for releases an off-the-record statement by the president? I think MTV should fine KW's ass for pulling that stunt, refuse airing of his videos or something idk. I would have given Obama props had he just plain called him out, rather than off-the-record. I did see that later on during the show Beyonce had won and then let taylor back on stage to finish her speech.


Kanye West likes fish sticks.

Kayne was right about that one. Why did it take georgy and fema so long to get to louisiana?

he's right. Kanye acted like a complete jackass.
I had a different name in mind, but that will do.

Yeah he was right about that, but there are some things you just are not supposed to say on TV. Even though I'm sure most felt the same.

For the record...I turned limbaugh on for the first 15 mins of his show...

He was defending Kanye...and asking why people aren't being called racist for criticizing Kanye but they are when they criticize Obama.

I'm not a Limbaugh fan...but that's what he did earlier.

Limbaugh is very good at twisting anything and everything into "reverse racism"


If people were criticizing Kanye in a racist manner - for example photoshopping him up as a witch doctor or claiming he must have been secretly born in Africa or Indonesia because he has a funny name (heh) - the two things might be comparable.

While I actually think most of the hatred for Obama is ideological rather than racial, I think it's downright silly to pretend some of it isn't racial when it clearly is.

But in talk radio land, white racism doesn't exist, and all accusations of racism, even towards some guy wearing a KKK hood, are by "lazy blacks looking for a free ride"

I agree. Many people are closet racists...but by no means are most people that way. Even the posts I read on ATS often scream racism without a single racist comment. I won't name names...I've gotten in trouble for that...but they know who they are.

If it wasn't for the T & C.....ATS message boards would look like you tube comments...with the N word being flung around like it's going out of style. The racists here know who they are...but fortunately there are plenty of good people here on ATS who are not this way.

I think so too.

Whats funny is that it was started by whites who called other whites racist. I always thought it would be brought on by one race calling the other one out.


Sorry to pick up this, but the phrase appears to confuse several angles:

1. A spade is a digging tool. Thus a person who uses the term "spade" as opposed to "a metal digging tool", is being plain-spoken, down-to-earth (no pun intended), and without pretension. Originally used in english around 16th century to describe some rather basic people in their language.

2. There is a racist use of spade as in the phrase "black as the Ace of Spades", which I have not heard in use in reality (or even on TV) since the racist show "Love Thy Neighbour" on british TV from the 70's. This phrase appears to have developed in the early 20th century.

English language is full of multiple meaninged words and one could be forgiven for confusing the two and imagining it is about someone's skin colour. as we can see (you can google it too) it is nothing of the sort.

So racist it isn't, in fact in some cicles it would be a compliment, but never an insult.

What is insulting is to stroll on stage, grab someones mic, and dismiss their (and their team's) work. The look of shock on Beyonce's face said it all.

I would like to draw attention to the fact that very few (if any) posts in this thread stated that Obama was out of line. Most (if not all) agreed that Kayne is a jackarse and should have been called one.

I bring this up to point out the fact that those of us opposed to Obama policies are not simply going against anything and everything the man does.

Even though I do not support the majority of changes that Obama is trying to make right now, I can say when he's right.

Regarding Kayne, Obama was definitely right. Further, do you really need to put on your "POTUS" hat when discussing celebrity nonsense?

At least we know Obama's right about something. Kayne West is a jackass, no question, and I have no problem with my president being frank and to the point. He should try to do this on more of a regular basis about things of greater importance.
