"HELP, HELP, HELP....
BY Melvia Miller
FOUR DAYS after the hurricane hit ..Thousands of people were in the Convention Center chanting
.help, help, help, help.
Most of these people were victimized because they were low income--poor folks--- and could not afford to
evacuate New Orleans.
FOUR days after the hurricane hit--- G.W. Bush mobilized the Nat. Guard--but mainly to keep order.
---YES, IT TOOK HIM 4 DAYS to come off his vacation in Crawford, TX.
We all knew that a terrible hurricane (rated 5) was going to hit that area at least a week before it
happened. Why werent the troops called up in advance to evacuate people the week before it hit???
ODD the people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Indonesia and other places that were hit by tragedy--- did not have
to chant for any help!!!! they dropped it off to them via helicopters and planes.
Racism survives the hurricanes !
RE: HURRICANE NEWS RACIAL BIAS
I must say I noticed the a double standard in the way this story was reported.
The media is portraying whites as FINDING FOOD, and Blacks as--- "LOOTING for Food"
See for yourself and click on the links. Goes to show, even in disaster, predjudice and stereotypes
prevail above all else. SAD--
HERE IS A PICTURE FROM THE NEWS SHOWING HURRICANE
VICTIMS TRYING TO SURVIVE .finding food
Scenario One: Whites FINDING food
http://news.yahoo.com/photo/050830/photos_ts_afp/050830071810_shxwaoma_photo1 White folks are portrayed as "victims trying to
survive" while the Blacks are just a "problem" or one sort or another.
Who cares if these people take a few things from storm-torn Wal-Mart. And don't forget how they drop
shipped food from planes and helicopters to the people in Iraq.
And here is a picture of a black person--- looting.
Scenario Two: Blacks LOOTING food
Blacks are portrayed as problems no matter what. LOOTING???!!!!!! How can you loot a storm-torn
store that is a disaster???
Yet, government officials were more worried about a few looters who were taking things from storm-ravaged
Wal-Mart and other stores.
G.W. Bush was on vacation in Crawford, TX--- trying to hide from the distraught woman Cindy Sheehan, who was
protesting in front of his ranch against the Iraq War ..
It all reminds us of how Nero fiddled while Rome burned.
And suddenly, after 4 days -- he became alarmed about the disaster.
He rushed into Iraq--and those people where not crying
for HELP ..
