Former US president says rapper calling him a racist
during a Hurricane Katrina telethon in 2005 was an 'all-time low'
In 2005 West appeared before millions on a live
telethon for Hurricane Katrina relief. As Mike Myers stood dumbfounded
beside him, the rapper extemporised on race, money and aid efforts,
finishing with the now notorious accusation: "George Bush doesn't
care about black people." West's outburst helped spur a national
debate about the White House's response to Hurricane Katrina.
