ill played race card

i've gotten some strife over my claim that new orleans is not a racial thing.

and since i don't want to respond directly to anyone with this tone, i will just say it to the universe:

black white hispanic . . . POOR that is the one thing that everyone who stayed in NOLA who wasn't a tourist has in common.

i'm so tired of obvious class issues being too taboo to speak of as is, so race is brought into it. yes the poor population of new orleans is primarily black. that doesn't mean they were picking out the white folks instead of the black ones. people of every color and sexual and religious orientation are rotting in their homes. and THAT is the most important thing.

the classes of this country are shit and it is about time that was looked at straight on, not through colors.

do you think jesse jackson was speaking only for black people when he objected to refugees? of course not. just because a majority of a population is of one color or another, or one sexual orientation or another, or one religion or another does not mean they are being picked on.

we may as well be saying that bush hates southern baptists or crawfish eaters. how absurd.

bush has shown time and time again that he hates the poor, can we focus on that for a few minutes?

doc and i are one disaster away from being refugees, how many of you are? how many are black?

big picture, people.
