    Amazing photojournalism work, each shot said a great deal. A hell of a lot of those white devil people......... didn't see any looting going on....... I guess they were too busy helping their neighbors.

    Lets be fair, a few of the looters in NO were just getting food. Of course the majority were looting non food items so...

    Why did the conditions get so bad in New Orleans? Why didn't the idiot Mayor and Governor get their people out? Why didn't the imbeciles of New Orleans have stockpiles of food and water in areas that would be used as shelters? They knew this was coming a week in advance, the Mayor left town. Why didn't the Governor take the help that was offered to her personally, from The President?

    I would say freezing floods are on par with warm flooding in a place that should have been evacuated. The people dealing with the freezing floods are helping each other out and not waiting on the government to rescue them........ that would be one huge difference. They certainly aren't getting any Federal help except for Coast Guard.

    Standard bullshit bigot claims, pathetic....... really. Houston and Galveston were devastated by Ike, over a hundred miles from the coast, we dealt with it.

    why are you even bringing up new orleans on this thread?

    cause yall want to point out how white people deal with issues vs blacks dealing with issues...and you want so badly to bitch that obama is just as bad...no no wait...worse than bush....

    you can dress it up but it is still the same stupid ass rhetoric
