Who's Ranting About The Race Issue

I hate to get off topic here because that is exactly what they want us to do but it seems to be such a "talking point" that I thought I would provide a place for all your "black" or "race" comments so you can get the friggin issue out of your system. It is harped by the right on this blog that "liberals" are trying to make this a race issue. It's not true. A class issue but not a race issue. Want proof. I'll save you the time. Here is the google search for "blacks hurricane katrina". Yes there is a story or two in this vein. Mostly from black groups and organizations, suprize, suprize. Quite amazingly you will find far more stories like this. Bigots on the right:

According to Matt Drudge, at one grocery store Blacks smashed open ATMs, sacked the pharmacy, and ran off with merchandise while leaving the premises in shambles. Another report details the plundering of a pharmacy, with a Black screaming "86! 86!" (local Ebonics for "police") when over-extended cops arrived. Another shouted "that's EVERYBODY'S store" as he fled with stolen clothes. One person compared the situation to other Third World sites: "It's downtown Baghdad. It's insane...I thought this was a sophisticated city. I guess not." A graphic video showing Blacks sacking a supermarket has shocked the nation.Meanwhile, the hordes of Black refugees sheltered in the city's football stadium have reportedly reduced the inside of the Superdome to a wreck. 500 National Guardsmen under the command of a General had been forced to pat down at least 10,000 Blacks for weapons and drugs as they entered. According to an unconfirmed report received by National Vanguard, "Black street gangs inside the New Orleans Superdome are making life miserable for others and National Guard units are being [forced] inside the Superdome to keep Blacks from preying on other Blacks." Sadly, reports also indicate that some inside the Superdome may be White tourists stranded by the storm. New Orleans City Council President Oliver Thomas said, “People are leaving the Superdome to go to Canal Street to loot. Some people broke into drug stores and stole the drugs off the shelves. It is looting times five. I'm telling you, it's like Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Note the date on this story. 8/30. No National Guardsman were even there yet!!! At least they didn't stay! Note people stealing drugs. Maybe drugs they needed to keep grandma alive!!??? Note what you saw with your own eyes. People sitting out there, thousands, calmly, peacefully, begging for food and water. Lying sacks of s**t. Lets all just shut up about the race issue and try to bring America together instead of divide it. Or maybe you would rather sit by and watch it crumble.

You know, Ron, I could care less about this divide or conquer thing any more.

It's like I said, there isn't a politician around that's worth a crap, and I don't care what "party" they belong to.

Hell, we'd be doing MUCH better under socialism right now, the way things are.

At least then, the American people would be getting taken care of as they should.

Methinks it's time for this country to abandon "party", and start thinking outside the box.

'nuff said.

Right dedanna. I may not be being clear but I'm talking about just that. Dividing AMERICANS not anything about party. Hell, you know from reading this blog what I think about the parties. If both parties had the peoples interest as paramount instead of the corporations I could live with our differences. I like the two or three or more party system. I think it serves a worthwhile purpose. Unfortunately now all we have is one big corporate party and nothing that cares foremost about the people. We in the grassroots need to rise up and make it happen...or continue being the corporations doormat..wage slaves.

Or, be a part of none of it, like yours truly. Get the hell outta dodge lol. Let them destroy this P.O.S. of a country we have. I'm almost beyond caring.

I understand your frustration dedanna and don't really blame you. Unfortunately I was born with a Teddy Roosevelt fighting spirit. I Must.

Y'know, I was born with a helluva fighting spirit too..... which is probably why I am alive today, and I mean that quite literally. I've been to and through suicidal sprints, I have been through poor-dom (am still there), I have been through bullshit upon bullshit upon bullshit in life, and it never seems to end.

However, I have never once... felt anything but compassion for those who had it worse than me. I always wanted to help them, and still do.

I just can't see.. (pardon the wording here, as I don't have it exactly) wasting all of that on something that's going down anyway, nor do I see the "heal the system within the system" thing working any more. A totally new system needs to be in its place (and PLEASE, do NOT take that to mean that I'm a NWO person; I'm definitely NOT! I'm talking a new system for America, without party borders).

I'm honestly beginning to think that the only way to fix it, is to use what experiences we've had, and do it from the outside in, rather than vice-versa. To me, this is the true way to fight, is with our heart, and to use every bit of strength that we've built up in our lives. I honestly don't think it would necessarily be a bad thing if we abandoned the USA for the USA, and gave the USA therefore, the light and understanding that it needs.

If we help all we can around the world on the whole, then maybe that's the answer.... to realize that America isn't just within it's own borders.

Sorry, am in a reflective state right now.

I really, really wanted to go to Indonesia when the tsunami hit there.... but finances, and the influx of people wanting to help like me were both overwhelming...

If I could just get down there to New Orleans.... who cares what color they are, in the end? They're people, whose lives we couldn't save... because we didn't have the ideas of how...

The answer is out there somewhere. My fighting spirit says to get out there and find it, and bring it back here someday.

Maybe this is why the Peace Corps is fitting for me right now. Who knows. I have the strong desire to help, no matter how nasty, how filthy, how anything. It's helping humanity on the whole that I'm concerned with, and want to do.

Maybe in doing so, there's an answer to all of this? The race thing and all? So many are so right when they say that race shouldn't even enter into anything. They're all people.... and they all need help...

This is the example that we all should be setting in America.

I think the Peace Corps is right for you dedanna if you can swing it.It will help you do something worthwhile and give you perspective in many different ways.
