I watched the BET Awards on television last night. I mean, it's tradition, right?
There were some great moments, including the tribute to Whitney Houston and plenty of glitz and glam.
One thing I did not enjoy was seeing Kim Kardashian sitting in the front row.
"Kim-ye," as I guess they're being dubbed donned matching white outfits. Isn't that special?
Now you love who you love. And love has no color. I get that. But, it was rather contradictory to hear Kanye rapping about Rodney King, oppression and such when he clearly has no interest in dating a black woman.
I mean, add to that the fact that he's just the latest in the long line of "chocolate men" to wear the "Kim arm candy."
And then there was Reggie Bush who valued Kim K. more than the Heisman Trophy.
Let's not forget Kris Humphries. 72 whole days. Now that's got to be a record somewhere. Is their divorce even final?
I couldn't help but wonder if Kanye West feels that George Bush doesn't care about black people, does that mean that Kanye West doesn't care about Black women?
p.s. - who was the rapper who made the song "Gold Digger?" Oh, wait - that was Kanye West.
