Kanye West has spoken out about one of the most iconic moments of his career -- when on live television he stated that "George Bush doesn't care about Black people."

The incident cemented him as a powerful voice for the Black community, but it seems that since then, his views have changed.

"'George Bush doesn't care about black people' is a victim statement. This white person didn't do something for us. That is stemmed in victim mentality," he said for his cover interview for GQ magazine. "Every day I have to look in the mirror like I'm Robert De Niro and tell myself, 'You are not a slave.' As outspoken as I am, and the position that I am in, I need to tell myself."

As an avid trump supporter, it's unlikely that his latest statements will surprise anybody, it's just a shame to see him walking back on one of the few times he has spoken up for the Black community.
