With all these massive airlifts in the past few days, the people evacuated are mostly likely going to stay werever they were sent. Wether it Baton Rouge, Phoenix, or Houston, there are going to black populations where they were practically non-existant. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not a rascist, blacks are just like anyone else :P ) People will have to adapt is all. (Ecspecially the rednecks down here)
Hidalgo County where I live in Texas, has only around 3,000 black people in a county with 650,000+ people. We are going to get a couple thousand at least. And this is just ONE county in one STATE. Imagine the effexts it will have in other locations. This hurricane is destroying New Orleans, a very unique area. Not only is it a hotspot of blues/jazz, but all the Cajuns in the country are being sprinkled. This is just too much in one dose. What the hell has happened to our country?

Show me sources of the government aiding blacks over whites.

Because I seriously doubt it. The only reason why that might be true, is because predemoninately black regions have armed thugs walking around shooting people, however, I still don't believe it.

Ya you're full of crap.

The white folk saved themselves left town, almost all the people they are trying to aid now are black as they are the majority of people left behind in New Orleans.

I have no idea what you are talking about 'saved', as when I look on the news I see buses being loaded with blacks and pulled off to safety. Give me sources, not speculation from 'Well most people I saw on TV.' :roll:

They left themselves, that has nothing to do with the federal government. I suppose if the UK got hit by hurricane, and you left on a plane on your own dollar, and all the Pakis were left behind then the governmetn played favorites in having all the whites leave first? They prepared their own evacuation arrangements, paid for it themselves, it had nothing to do with the government.

They left already. The white people of New Orleans are rich and can support their own means of transport out, while the black people tend to be the poorer and were left behind.

There are quite a few rich black people, and quite a few poor white people.

That's how it always is, but most of the rich and the poor are made of various ethnic compositions.

The rich being the white Southern Aristocracy AngloSaxons, some French descended, people from the North, people of Jewish descent, professional foriegners (indians, pakistanis, asians), wealthy black professionals and artists etc.

The poor being whites descended mostly from poor dirt farmers, blacks, lots of immigrants, illegal ones well many of them hispanic and it goes on and on.

Although there are many exceptoins, the colors of rich and poor aren't so gray and more black and white.

Uptown is where they say they're from, not where they moved to once they got rich. and I think most of them move to Atlanta anyway.

I don't like how the media is making it about skin color, when its really about poverty.

Exactly. And if you look at the race and wealth statistics it supports that statement.

It is about skin color. That's why Bush won't stop there. George Bush does not care about black people and George Bush is scared of black people.

If poor white people were left behind, they'd be rescued the first day. If rich black people were left behind, they'd release the hounds.

You're right. You notice how it's only white people saying it's about poverty? How can white people possibly understand what it's like to be black? I'm ashamed of my race.
