Rosemary DePaolo’s administration is beaming with joy as the University of North Carolina - Wilmington prepares to host Kanye West for a spring concert on its beautiful seaside campus. Every three years or so, the campus invites a prominent black entertainer to prove how much the school welcomes, accepts, and truly loves its several dozen black students. The school also truly loves both of its black professors.

The last prominent black entertainer hired by UNCW was Ludacris who bragged about running over “b**ches and hos” in his “b**ch-and-ho-mobile.” For the bargain price of $120,000 he also sang his classic ballad “move b**ch.” The next year, when two female students were murdered, Chancellor DePaolo argued that UNCW had created the best possible climate for women on campus. The university feminists can take some solace in the fact that rappers Ludacris and West don’t hate women as much as they hate white people.

Most people know Kanye West from his appearance with Mike Myers on a live television fundraiser organized for victims of Hurricane Katrina. West used the fund-raiser to accuse the media of racism and also took a shot at President Bush with the following:

“I hate the way they portray us in the media. You see a black family, it says, ‘They're looting.’ You see a white family, it says, ‘They're looking for food.’ …So anybody out there that wants to do anything that we can help - with the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off, as slow as possible. I mean, the Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of people that could help are at war right now, fighting in another way – and they’ve given them permission to go down and shoot us!”

And then he uttered this now-infamous line: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

In July of 2005, West appeared on stage in a show created by Bob Geldorf, which was aimed at ending poverty. During the show, West made references to “man-made diseases placed in African communities.” This was a reference to his belief that AIDS was introduced to Africa by the US government through the polio vaccine. West criticized politicians for riding in Bentleys and Mercedes Benzes but some articles on the rapper have referenced his ownership of 12 different vehicles. That’s enough room for a lot of b**ches and hos!
