Kanye "Bush hates black people" West plays to local LA high school

I don't care that Kanye played at the High School. Could care less. The best part of the article the LATimes has on the event is in the last five paragraphs...

The concert lasted about an hour, and the crowd noise rivaled any stadium din. Some students grouped together and spelled K-A-N-Y-E W-E-S-T on their sweatshirts with masking tape.

Others wore T-shirts emblazoned with Kanye's controversial post-Hurricane Katrina statement: "Bush doesn't care about black people."

In the middle of a rousing six-song set, West paused to take questions from the crowd.

"What kind of grades did you get in high school?" asked one student.

"I didn't do a lot of homework," West answered, to laughter. "But I got a lot of A's and Bs."

How is what the students wore relevant to the story? Oh that's right, it's not.
