Would you care as much if all these people were white?
Also, would you be more critical of the people themselves?
first off, where the hell did i mention anything about white or black or whatever skin color someone is in my post?
second, i'd LOVE to hear your response to me pointing out given information since i'm so "idiotic" according to you.

I am not sure where you're getting your information, but there is an unprecidented amount of aid on the way there.
if you want to bring up racism, i'll go ahead and do it:

those are all DIRECT QUOTES from the media. why are the black folk "looters" while the white people just happen to "find" food?
we knew the media was already racist though.
i'm sure as hell willin to believe that it doesnt help new orleans is a predominantly black city.
theres no excuse for this crap period. wheres FEMA? where was the aid to the superdome? if buses (days after) can arrive then obviously help can be sent. obviously if they can get there everyone else can. the superdome is dry and obviously these vehicles can drive in and out of the city still. its all well that there are federal grants being porposed yada yada but what needs to be done is GETTING EVERYONE THE HELL OUT OF THERE. that CAN be done and IS NOT BEING DONE. instead of spending money to fix things in NO and prevent much of the disaster from occuring or getting help to that city IMMEDIATELY, it is cut and we go fight a war in iraq because the bush regime "thought" saddam had WMDs. oops, guess that never worked out huh.
where's bush? oh, here he is !

heaven forbid dubya had to take off from his vacation!
there are many efforts and many many great & courageous firefighters, volunteers, rescue workers doing what they can and i applaud them for that. those people are the true heroes. what im sayin though is look at all the news available and what isnt being done. we live in the so called richest country in the world, the so-called u.s. of a. yet we cant get these people all the help they need. if you cant see my train of thought you are a dimwit, simple as that.:
