      New R&B Song About Hurricane Katrina Angers Bush Administration and Other Politicians

      Song Says "President Bush Definitely Doesn't Care About Black People"

      Long Beach, CA (BlackNews.com) - 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 www.hurricanesong.com

      Sung by newcomer soulful singer Allen, the song is a great mid-tempo combination of old-school R&B and pop. The lyrics are very emotional and graphic; the words paint an extremely dismal picture of what it was like to be a victim of Hurricane Katrina. The song is so intense that many are asking whether or not the singer was a victim who was actually stranded for days on a rooftop.

      Some of they 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."

      "Begging you for water - again and again. Please don't make me drink the water that I'm standing in."

      Many African-Americans like the song and agree with the lyrics. However, many politicians find the song offensive because it implies that President Bush just doesn't care about Black Americans.

      In the media, Bush has accepted the blame for what went wrong with Katrina, but still denies that race was a factor. The images seen from the devastation prove otherwise.

      Several artists including Prince, have released songs about the Hurricane Katrina situation. However, none have successfully captured the incident with the right lyrics, production, and emotion...until now!

      Interested ones can listen to the song for free at www.HurricaneSong.com

      Interested radio and television stations should call (562) 209-0616 to receive a copy of the song on CD.

      Water is "Blue"

      As an observation, water has not been good to us. Over (the Middle Passage) and under (Katrina) -water is not our friend!

      Will this be the rallying cry or "our" NEVER AGAIN? Will the oppressor's chronic distaste for our "place" be our slap in the face -that bring us back to reality that our collective un-survival is the only "totality" of their pathology?

      Never No'More. We wade in spoiled water as the streets get hotter, drained into a cesspool as materialist fodder. I wanna make a "Song Cry" for US: Never No'More.

      OK, a stab at poetry! Katrina washed us in the reality of our situation in the belly of this beast. We're being digested and turned into excrement and "seem" to acting like ISH don't stank.

      Wade in the water children, WE GODS are gonna trouble the water.


      Peace & Love,
