Kanye Loves Fashion
Kanye west is killing the music industry but few people are aware of the major impact he is making in fashion industry, widely recognized as the second largest industry in the world. Kanye West is quickly rising the ranks and becoming known as the fashion industry bad boy. His abstract view on upscale couture clothing is redefining the way fashion and media experts approach the streetwear scene.
For those who don’t remember, Kanye West got on an MTV award show in 2005 and blurted out on national TV that George Bush was a racist based on his slow response to the largely black victims of Hurricane Katrina. George Bush told Matt Lauer recently in an interview that the remark by Kanye was the “lowest point in his presidency”. Everyone watched the events on TV unfold in the summer of 2005 in Louisiana. Black people dying on rooftops, brothers and sisters dying in the streets, and the looting and anarchy that took over the streets of New Orleans was a an international news story. The slow response by the federal government to provide food, water and medical assistance played out before our eyes as too many black people suffered and died. These events surely brought out the many negative emotions that caused Kanye to call Bush a racist for not providing immediate aid to the largely black victims, but the honest truth is that Bush’s slow response was not a race issue, it was a class issue.
