New Orleans Went Under.........................
A Black Man's Comments.

Carefully read the whole article. You'll be
amazed at this guy!!!

I don't know the man who wrote this, but I
looked at his picture and read it with my mouth
hanging open. He says things here that no
white man could ever write and keep his job
as a writer .

Say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you
live in. Two questions:
What would you do?
What would you do if you were black?
Sadly, the two questions don't have the
same answer.

To the first: Most of us would take our
families out of that city quickly to protect
them from danger. Then, able-bodied men
would ret urn to help others in need, as wives
and others cared for children, elderly, infirm
and the like.

For better or worse, Hurricane Katrina has
told us the answer to the second question.
If you're black and a hurricane is about to
destroy your city, you'll probably wait for the
government to save you.

This was not always the case. Prior to 40
years ago, such a pathetic performance by the
black community in a time of crisis would
have been inconceivable. The first response
would have come from black men. They would
take care of their families, bring them to safety,
and then help the rest of the community. Then
local government would come in.

No longer. When 75 percent of New Orleans
residents had left the city, it was primarily
immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed
behind and waited for the government to bail
them out. This, as we know, did not turn out
good results.

Enter Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan.
Jackson and Farrakhan laid blame on "racist"
President Bush. Farrakhan actually proposed
the idea that the government blew up a levee
so as to kill blacks and save whites. The two
demanded massive governmental spending to
rebuild New Orleans , above and beyond the
federal government's proposed $60 billion.
Not only that, these two were positioning
themselves as the gatekeepers to supervise the
dispersion of funds. Perfect: Two of the most
dishonest elite blacks in America , "overseeing"
billions of dollars. I wonder where that money
will end up.

Of course, if these two were really serious about
laying blame on government, they should blame
the local one. Responsibility to perform legally
and practically fell first on the mayor of New
Orleans . We are now all familiar with Mayor Ray
Nagin the black who likes to yell at President Bush
for failing to do Nagin's job. The facts,
unfortunately, do not support Nagin's wailing. As
the Washington Times puts it, "recent reports
show [Nagin] failed to follow through on his own
city's emergency-response plan, which
acknowledged that thousands of the city's poorest
residents would have no way to evacuate the city."

One wonders how there was "no way" for these
people to evacuate the city. We have photographic
evidence telling us otherwise. You've probably
seen it by now, the photo showing 2,000 parked
school buses, unused and underwater. How much
planning does it require to put people on a bus
and leave town, Mayor Nagin?

Instead of doing the obvious, Mayor Nagin (with
no positive contribution from Gov. Kathleen Blanco,
the other major leader vested with responsibility to
address the hurricane disaster) loaded remaining
new Orleans residents into the Superdome and the
city's convention center. We know how that plan
turned out.

About five years ago, in a debate before the
National Association of Black Journalists, I stated
that if whites were to just leave the United States
and let blacks run the country, they would turn
America into a ghetto within 10 years. The
audience, shall we say, disagreed with me strongly.
Now I have to disagree with me. I gave blacks too
much credit. It took a mere three days for blacks
to turn the Superdome and the convention center
into ghettos, rampant with theft, rape and murder.

President Bush is not to blame for the rampant
immorality of blacks. Had New Orleans ' black
community taken action, most would have been
out of harm's way. But most were too lazy,
immoral and trifling to do anything productive
for themselves.

All Americans must tell blacks this truth. It was
blacks' moral poverty not their material poverty
that cost them dearly in New Orleans . Farrakhan,
Jackson, and other race hustlers are to be
repudiated for they will only perpetuate this
problem by stirring up hatred and applauding
moral corruption. New Orleans , to the extent it is
to be rebuilt, should be remade into a
dependency-free, morally strong city where
corruption is opposed and success is applauded.
Blacks are obligated to help themselves and not
depend on the government to care for them. We
are all obligated to tell them so.

You are asked to keep this moving,,,,,,however,

as you will.
