"Why did Bush knock down the towers?"

The NY Daily News:
Yonkers rapper Jadakiss is busting up the charts with a song charging President Bush was a Sept. 11 conspirator.

"Why did Bush knock down the towers?" asks the song "Why?"...

"His opinion is that of the 'hood," said Chuck Black, 24, who works at Ali CD's on W. 125th St. "As far as us 'black folks,' we're not offended by it."
I've disappointedly accepted that large parts of the Arab world think a Jewish conspiracy was behind 9/11. Something to do with anti-Semitic indoctrination through the schools and the state-controlled media.

But do major parts of the American black community really think Bush knocked down the towers? If so, why? If any member of the mainstream American press made such a statement, he would rightfully be ostracized by any reputable media outlet.
