Rappers P. Diddy and Jay-Z, announced Thursday, their $1 million joint donation to the American Red Cross to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. Marked their contribution, the two of them hoped that what they've done would inspire others, especially blacks, to give.

"This is our community. When I turn on CNN, I see a lot of black people on the streets. I know it's other people too, but those projects have been hit hard," so said Jay-Z. Supporting his pal, P. Diddy commented, "We are all descendants from each other's families. When you hear black people say `brothers' and `sisters,' it's really true. These are all people that I know I'm related to somehow, some way - the human race family."
