It wasn't racism, it was ineptness

A House committee is investigating racism as a factor for the poor response in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

I wonder if the New Orleans refugees complaining to the committee are the same ones who used their Red Cross credit cards to buy liquor, Dolce & Gabbana handbags, DVD players and the like.

These people also fail to realize that "Orleans Parish is heavily represented by Democrats and blacks in the political system. It also seems to me that they are not doing anything to protect their people and to help get them out of poverty. Oh, I almost forgot, the great mayor of New Orleans is black and, you guessed it, a Democrat."

As Norman Liebmann wrote shortly after the hurricane, "When catastrophe befell what was largely a city whose population is mostly black, those who showed up with sustenance were mostly white. Yet, it was Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and hip-hopper, Kanye West, who urged their people to spit in the face of their salvation. The proponents of black activism are thus fueled with a lust for unearned revenge. Bitterness seems to be the one emotion of which this minority does not seem to feel emotionally deprived."
