Hurricain Bush and the Klansmen mentality
06 Sep 2005
Iam not saying the Texas redneck millionaire hick named George W. is a klansmen or a racist just part of the klan mentality that has historicaly left Black Americans without and as third class citizens.
This is not a catastrophe if you are a priviledged white rancher with a redneck who was raised in a segregated South in the 1960's this is just another example of your economical superioty and a chance to 'tour' the less fortunate humans like a zoo display of human suffering from the luxuries of Airforce One


Many oil rigs i n the gulf of mexico were evacuated5to 7and even upto10 days ahead of hurricane Bush!!!!! why not the same care and warning for the black citizens of neworleans isnt it possible all the evacuation equipment was buisy safeguarding big oil in the gulf where the money was ind ignored neworleans how did the oil companies get such an advanced notice while if you were black and lived in neworleans you got 12 hours notice


To all of those who think this is purely political I dont think Al Gore or John Kerry would be any better they all come from generations of extreme priviledge and look down their noses on many whites also It would take a Bill Clinton to understand Southern Poverty which he came from alas he has sold out to the corporations


In all truth it would suprisse no one if we learned that whites were evacuated ahead of bla cks and blacks were told to not evacuate while wites were given early warning, because thats the 'whites only drinking fountain" mentality and institutional racism of the deep
South of which George the redneck farmer grew up in


If Bush were not incredibly stupid and subconciously racist this hurrican would have just been another Ivan or Andrew with only a handful of deaths along the exclusively white and Jewish Miami coast but mix in disfranchised blacks in a large city and they say "the hell with it" its a black problem let them take care of there own



Bush thinking "hm;mm these black people have no money to donate and dont vote so lets make them priority number 4"

"lets get the oil executives and oil workers all to safety a week in advance"

The racism is so deep the klansmen mentality so strong no one even sees it.

"pedal to the medal dude"
