Kanye West said it first. Jay-Z agreed, and now there's an official song circulating on the Internet that confirms it
-- "President Bush Does Not Care About Black People." The
song can be heard online for free at http://www.HurricaneSong.com .
Sung by newcomer singer Allen, the song lyrics lyrics say: "Everything is gone. Everything is gone. The clothes
on my back are all I own. Then it hit me -- Ain't nobody coming to get me. No one feels my pain. Once again, the color of
my skin reminds me things ain't changed."
