    You would think he wouldn't care what color the "organizers" are, as long as everyone gets rescued.

    Oh..that's right...this is Jesse Jackson.

    -----

    Racism is partly to blame for the deadly aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said, calling President Bush's response to the disaster "incompetent."

    "Today, as the President comes to Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi for his ceremonial trip to look at the victims of the devastation, he would do well to have a plan more significant than a ceremonial tour," Jackson said Friday.

    "His whole response is unacceptable."

    Bush has acknowledged that the federal response has not been acceptable, but promised that the government would get supplies to survivors and crack down on violence in New Orleans.

    Jackson questioned why Bush has not named blacks to top positions in the federal response to the disaster, particularly when the majority of victims remaining stranded in New Orleans are black: "How can blacks be locked out of the leadership, and trapped in the suffering?"

    "It is that lack of sensitivity and compassion that represents a kind of incompetence."

    U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Russell Honore, head of the military task force overseeing operations in the three states, is black. His task force is providing search and rescue, medical help and sending supplies to the three states in support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

    Jackson was in Baton Rouge to take part in a local project using a caravan of buses to pick up people stranded in New Orleans and transport them out. He spoke at a news conference at the state emergency center.

    The civil rights leader said the flooding that caused thousands to be trapped inside the city was caused by a lack of federal funding for its levee system and hurricane planning. The resulting tragedy, he said, has largely hit New Orleans' black residents, because they were too poor to evacuate before the storm hit.

    "There's a historical indifference to the pain of poor people and black people" in this country, he said.

    Jackson also said the news media has "criminalized the people of New Orleans" by focusing on violence in the city.

    Why aren't there blacks in the relief effort? Maybe a more interesting question would be why aren't there white people looting and shooting at police officers and rescue workers? And why are we bothering to save half of these fucking assholes anyway?

    Isn't it obvious? The President called down a hurricane on the poor people of New Orleans because he hates black people. Condi Rice and Colin Powell appointed themselves to two of the most powerful position in America, too.


    If you are looking for Mr. Jackson, you can find him in his special place:

    The people of New Orleans have done a pretty good job of criminalizing themselves.

    The gov. should have had more controll of the situation from the start and had a handle on the criminal element in the city. INstead the criminals took over and have hampered the efforts of the National Guard and fewer of the law abiding people are being saved.

    I don't see this as a white against black issue, but of course it was only a matter of time before those who make a living crying racism started this.

    you are wrong though, they WERE part of the relief effort. they provided bullets for the recusers to dodge. what a bunch of jackasses. when they all stand around with 3k worth of gold in their mouth and complain about poverty, that's the right time to just drop a bomb on em'. I have never before seen so much unappreciation for assistance. you won't see the whites looting and shooting. atleast none except the ones with gold teeth. wow, I love to know that my tax dollars helped to improve the "bling bling snoop dog" aspect of someone's life.

    this country is currently in the bowl. standing by for flush.

    Jesse Jackson = The American Yassir Arafat. That pretty much sums it up. Just put a towel on his head and you would be hard pressed to tell them apart.

    The man has enriched himself on the misery and suffering of "his people". The man is a con artist, who makes himself look good while he cheats, steals and robs. He has extorted millions from people and other organizations into giving to his Rainbow Push Coaltion, which then winds up in his pocket and the pockets of his inner circle.

    He is the proverbial "part of the problem", here's to hoping that someone puts a bullet through that man's head. No, on second thought, we don't want him to become equated with Martin Luther King..... maybe he can die a long slow painful death like A$$hole Arafat did.
