Russell says of Kanye joining him today:
"It was amazing to see how people loved seeing Kanye West at Occupy Wall Street. His music and his art has always been about the voice and the power of the people. Kanye just wanted to come down and experience the growing movement that has opened the eyes of many around this country and around the world of the struggles of poor people. The energy at Liberty Plaza was electrifying and the momentum to get the money out of politics is growing quickly."
Comment: Entertainers are the new leaders of the century like it or not
It's just that not many are stepping up to the plate as they should. Kanye took a first step he should be given credit instead of being criticized for trying to get some camera time. He has Paparazzi following him everywhere so that's not the case at all. Kudos to Kanye.
