What didn't these people understand about: "if you don't evacuate you will die?"
Oh, and of course they blamed the levy on Bush as well like he built the ****ing thing or even was president when the damn thing was built. Obviously the Army Core of Engineers is alien to the ignorant - they don't know what the hell that is...
The best part about this whole NOLA Katrina nonsense is the fact that people were stealing everything they could. I saw a guy on TV holding an LCD flat screen TV over his head while he was walking though a swamp of bodies...... Really? the first thing on your survival list is a fricking flat screen TV???
Note to the idiots the CHOOSE to go though something like this again - TV's and video games are the last thing you need in a life or death situation such as Katrina.
I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.
That is from, as I'm sure you know already, MLK's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail". At first glance it seems to echo your disgust with me, as if I am a shining example of that same white moderate to which MLK referred. But the great difference in between MLK's words and your own is that he did not allow spite to creep into his speech - you do. He was welcoming to all who did not hate him, and so many more could listen to him, stand by him, and support him. Your words are not welcoming - they're spiteful. You place yourself in the seat of judgment as MLK never would have. You lump even those whites who stand most strongly against racism into the same toxic mindset inhabited by white racists and those who enable white racism, and by doing so make yourself seem just as prejudiced towards whites as so many whites are towards blacks.
In other words, your spite isn't helping - it's enabling the real racists, the ones (even here on DP) who will read your words and say, "See, they're just as racist as we are!"
I'm not telling you to "be nice to white people". I'm telling you that you need to learn that you can draw more flies with honey than with vinegar - the greatest leaders lift up, rather than tear down. Foisting your spite, hurt, and rage on other people might make you feel better, but in the long run they're helping no one, not you, not anyone.
I earnestly hope this helps.
