Caniballism in New Orleans rreported!
02 Sep 2005
Thisis not my story it is copied from the huffingtonpost, yet it is so important of the kind of thing that doesnt get reported that I feel strongly it must remain up for people to read forthemselves!!
It is reported that black hurricane victims in New Orleans have begun eating corpses to survive. Four days after the storm, thousands of blacks in New Orleans are dying like dogs. No-one has come to help them.

I am a sixty-four year old African-American.

New Orleans marks the end of the America I strove for.

I am hopeless. I am sad. I am angry against my country for doing nothing when it mattered.

This is what we have come to. This defining watershed moment in America’s racial history. For all the world to witness. For those who’ve been caused to listen for a lifetime to America’s ceaseless hollow bleats about democracy. For Christians, Jews and Muslims at home and abroad. For rich and poor. For African-American soldiers fighting in Iraq. For African-Americans inside the halls of officialdom and out.

My hand shakes with anger as I write. I, the formerly un-jaundiced human rights advocate, have finally come to see my country for what it really is. A monstrous fraud.

But what can I do but write about how I feel. How millions, black like me, must feel at this, the lowest moment in my country’s story.

Republican: The Other White Meat
02 Sep 2005
Let's just hope those resorting to cannibalism prefer fat, white, businessmen and politicians.
Let them eat soup.

Pass around the bowl.
Cops are an alternative white meat.

Why limit the feeding to Republicans when cops are just as tasty.
