Kanye West Responds By Sympathizing With -- But Not Apologizing To -- George W. Bush

In the wake of George W. Bush's bitchfest to Matt Lauer about Kanye West's diss to him five years ago, West phoned in to Houston's 97.9 The Box to offer the following response:

"Well I can definitely understand the way he feels to be accused of being a racist in any way because the same thing happened to me, you know, where I got accused of being racist, and with both situations it was basically a lack of compassion that America saw. With him it was a lack of compassion not rushing, you know, taking his time to rush down to New Orleans. With me, it was a lack of compassion in cutting someone off in their moment, but none the less I feel we're all quick to pull the race card [in America]. And now I'm more open, and the poetic justice that I feel to go through the same thing that he went [through], and now I really more connect with him on a humanitarian level ... the next morning when he felt that, I felt the same thing..."
This is an unusually restrained, humble, and even a bit eloquent comment coming from West, and I've got to commend him for that. Will Bush respond? I personally recommend a beer summit.
