Mardi Gras in New Orleans?!?!
01 Mar 2006
Am I the only one still suffering from the insanity of watching the news coverage of the "post-katrina mardi gras celebrations". Tell me I'm not, for I wll sink into a deep depression when faced with what this world is coming to.

Why the fuck would residents of this city want to keep this already super commodified, disgusting travesty alive?

Oh but it OK because we have Brian Williams talking with the X-FEMA director , asking tough questions with sickening gestures of concern smeared on his face. So then the white suite and tie news anchors prancing around Bourbon Street are exusable.

No , we remain paralysed as usual, unable to act according to our feelings of whats rational, stuck when faced with the stream of images. But what can one expect from a culture that buys such DVDs as "Ghetto Brawls" www.realfights.com ?

Fuck everyone that died, let's party! - That seems to be the attitude.

i think it's worst than that. mardigras is a carnival usurped by white culture and turned into tits & drunken idiots...

very little left of the african-american culture there. moreover, most of the party people are white... don't think the low classes were invited to the party

Prof, get your ignorant ass out of the house right now and go read a copy of "The Nigger Bible" by Robert H. Decoy. And then shut your fucking mouth about mardi gras you flaming communist!
Who cares if thousands died.
