    >> I recieved this in an e-mail from my sister. It was written by a friend of hers that volunteered to help the "people" from New Orleans. This is consistent with other tales I have heard from others that went to the Astrodome to help. Obviously it wasn't everyone that acted this way but unfortunately it is a much larger percentage than anyone would believe.
    The people that have come to Houston have received an amazing amount of freebies from apartments to homes, cars, even 2.3 million dollars worth of confiscated designer clothes from the U.S. Customs Department. They are getting jobs that citizens of Houston needed(a friend was suppose to start in the pharmacy at Walgreens last week but was called to say they didn't need her because they were told to hire Louisiana Walgreens people). There has already been trouble at an area school where 5 kids ended up getting arrested and the same amount went to the hospital. Seems that there was a turf war started.
    Another friend was driving by the Astrodome on her way to work last week when she stopped at a red light. Within seconds she was surrounded by dozens of young black males demanding money. She ran through the light and was almost hit by another car.
    Last month in the same area after Astroworld closed for the night , a group of at least 50 black youngsters decided to rush into an Exxon Market across the street. The security camera footage was shown on the news. These male and females barged into the store all at once and started taking everything in the place, these were regular Houston young people not the looters from New Orleans, the film was quite an eyeopener. Now Houston has been lucky enough to get a shit load more of these jack balls, I have to go buy more ammo.
    Thought you guys would find this account interesting.


    Subject: Fw: One volunteers story.

    Shameful behavior which shamed an entire city and the great State of
    Louisiana. Do they care? Of course not! It's a ghetto mentality which
    thinks society still owes them something. They behaved like simians!

    This is from a guy here in Houston that went to volunteer his time to
    help the hurricane victims. It is pretty sad and disappointing to think
    people could be so ungrateful.

    SO I VOLUNTEERED..........

    I thought I might inform the few friends I have on my recent traumatic
    experience. I am going to tell it straight, blunt, raw, and I don't give
    a damn. Long read, I know but please do read!!!

    I went to volunteer on Saturday at the George R. Brown convention for
    two reasons.

    A: I wanted to help people to get a warm fuzzy.
    B: Curiosity.

    I've been watching the news lately and have seen scenes that have made me want to vomit. And no it wasn't dead bodies, the city under water, or the sludge everywhere. It was PEOPLE'S BEHAVIOR. The people on T.V. (99% being Black) were DEMANDING help. They were not asking nicely but demanding as if society owed these people something. Well the honest truth is WE DON'T. Help should be asked for in a kind manner and then appreciated. This is not what the press (FOX in particular) was showing, what I was seeing was a group of people who are yelling, demanding, looting, killing, raping, and SHOOTING back at the demanded help!!!!! So I'm thinking this can't possibly be true can it???? So I decide to
    submit to the DEMAND for help out of SHOCK. I couldn't believe this to
    be true of the majority of the people who are the weakest of society. So I went to volunteer and help folks out and see the truth. So I will tell
    the following story and you decide:

    I arrived at the Astrodome only to find out that there are too many
    volunteers and that volunteers were needed at the George R. Brown
    Convention Center. As I was walking up to the Convention Center I
    noticed a line of cars that wrapped around blocks filled with donations.
    These where ordinary Houstonians coming with truckloads and trunks full
    of water, diapers, clothes, blankets, food, all types of good stuff. And
    lots of it was NEW. I felt that warm fuzzy while helping unload these
    vehicles of these wonderful human beings. I then went inside the
    building and noticed approximately 100,000 sq. ft. of clothes, shoes,
    jackets, toys and all types of goodies all organized and ready for the
    people in need. I signed up, received a name badge and was on my merry
    way, excited to be useful.

    I toured the place to get familiar with my surrounding; the entire place
    is probably around 2 million sq. ft. I noticed rows as far as the eye
    can see of mattresses, not cots, BLOW UP MATTRESSES!!! All of which had
    nice pillows and plenty of blankets. 2 to 3 bottles of water lay on
    every bed. These full size to queen size beds by the way were
    comfortable, I laid in one to see for myself I. went to look at the
    medical area. I couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing!!! A makeshift
    hospital created in 24 hours!!! It was unbelievable, they even had a
    pharmacy. I also noticed that they created showers, which would also
    have hot water. I went upstairs to the third floor to find a HUGE
    cafeteria created in under 24 hours! Rows of tables, chairs and food
    everywhere enough to feed an army! I'm not talking about crap food
    either. They had Jason's deli food, apples, oranges, coke, diet coke,
    lemonade, orange juice, cookies, all types of chips and sandwiches. All
    the beverages by the way was put on ice and chilled!!!! In a matter of
    about 24 hours or less an entire mini-city was erected by volunteers for
    the poor evacuees. This was not your rundown crap shelter, it was BUM
    HEAVEN.

    So that was the layout: great food, comfy beds, clean showers, free
    medical help, by the way there was a library, and a theatre room I
    forgot to mention. Great stuff right????

    Well here is what happened on my journey.

    I started by handing out COLD water bottles to evacuees as they got off
    the bus. Many would take them and only 20% or less said thank you. Lots
    of them would shake their heads and ask for sodas! So this went on for
    about 20-30 minutes until I was sick of being an unappreciated servant.
    I figured certainly these folks would appreciate some food!!! So I went
    upstairs to serve these beloved evacuees some GOOD food that I wish I
    could have at the moment!

    **The following statements are graphic, truthful, and discuss IRRATIONAL
    behavior**

    Evacuees come slowly to receive this mountain of food that is worth
    serving to a king! I tell them that we have 2 types of great deli
    sandwiches to choose from - ham and turkey. Many look at the food in
    disgust and DEMAND burgers, pizza, and even McDonalds!!!! Jason's deli
    is better than McDonalds!!!! Only 1 out of ten people who took something
    would say "thank you", the rest took items as if it was their God-given
    right to be served without a shred of appreciation!!! They would ask for
    beer and liquor. They complained that we didn't have good enough food.
    They refused food and laughed at us. They treated us volunteers as if we
    where SLAVES. No not all of them of course but 70% did!!!!!! 20% were
    appreciative, 10% took the food without any comment and the other 70%
    had some disgusting comment to say. Some had the nerve to laugh at us.
    And when I snapped back at them for being mean, they would curse at
    me!!! Needless to say I was in utter shock. They would eat their food
    and leave their mess on the table some would pick up their stuff many
    would leave it for the volunteers to pick up I. left that real quick to
    go down and help set up some more beds. I saw many young ladies carrying mattresses and I helped for a while. Then I realized something....... there were hundreds of able bodied young men who could help!! I asked a group of young evacuees in their teens and early twenties to help. I got cursed at for asking them to help!!! One said "We just lost our ****ing homes and you want us to work!!" The next said "Ya Cracker, you got a home we don't." I looked at them in disbelief. Here are women walking by carrying THEIR ****ING BEDS and they can't lift a finger and help themselves!!

    WHY THE **** SHOULD I HELP PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO HELP THEMESELVES!!!!

    I waved them off and turned away and was laughed at and more "white boy jokes" were made at me. I felt no need to waste my breath on a bunch of pitiful losers. I went to a nearby restroom where I noticed a man
    shaving. I used the restroom, washed my hands and saw this man throw his razor towards the trash can...he missed. He walked out leaving his
    disgusting razor on the floor for some other "cracker" to pick up. Even
    the little kids were demanding. I saw only ONE white family and only TWO
    Hispanic families. The rest where blacks. sorry 20% to 30% decent blacks
    and 70% LOSERS!!!!!

    I would call them ******S, but the actual definition of a ****** is one
    who is ignorant, these people were not ignorant, they where ARROGANT
    *******S. The majority of which are thugs and lifetime lazy ass welfare
    recipients. We are inviting the lowest of the low to Houston. And like
    idiots we are serving the people who will soon steal our cars, rape,
    murder, and destroy our city while stealing from our pockets on a daily
    basis through the welfare checks they take. We will fund our own
    destruction.

    By "US" I don't mean a specific race, I mean the people who work hard,
    work smart, have values and morals. Only people who want to help
    themselves should be helped, the others should be allowed to destroy
    themselves. I do not want to work hard, give the government close to
    half the money I earn so they can in turn give it to a bunch of losers.

    I don't believe in being poor for life. My family immigrated here, we
    came here poor, and now thank God, and due to HARD WORK we are doing fine.
    If immigrants, who come here don't know the language can work and become successful... WHY THE **** CAN'T THE MAJORITY OF THE HOMEGROWN DO IT!!!

    If we continue to reward these losers then we will soon destroy
    our great country. I just witnessed selfish, arrogant, unappreciative
    behavior by the very people who need help the most. Now these same
    people who cursed me, ! refused my city's generosity, who refuse to help
    themselves are DEMANDING handouts on their own terms!!!!!!! They prance
    around as if they are owed something, and when they do receive a
    handout, they say it's not good enough! Well you know what? These
    types of people can go to hell for all I care!

    Americans must wake up to the fact that new orleans was a ghetto and katrina flushed these people from that ghetto into the spotlight. Blacks will never be anything more than a demanding underclass, sucking resources form the system and never giving back. its an old mentality that goes back to the slave days in that the white man will be forever responsible for my plight. Bill Cosby was right with his comments that blacks will need to help themselves by becoming educated and working for a living.

    Unfortunately repeated again in Austin except you could get autographs from the "stars" of the music, film and athletic industries.

    Wow! Do you have a link to the author of this screed? Like does this person have data?

    I'm skeptical to the bashing of those that aren't grateful, but I really want something that documents this level of entitlement. I am as in awe of this as I would be a gaggle of praise to the tops!

    Suprised? Not really. Im not a racist. I am a realist. Most inner city people are ignorant, motherfucking assholes. Most inner city people also happen to be black. Simple as that. The smart blacks are the ones that move out of the inner city to the suburbs and TRY to make a better life for themselves. Doesnt always work that way but they try and they recognize that inner cities are cesspools of life.

    On a sidenote, which way does EVERY major city in the US vote in EVERY election?

    Kathianne,
    Screed? At the beginning of my post I stated that this was an e-mail that I received from my sister who knows the person that wrote it. There have been numerous incidents and interviews that I have witnessed that lend credance to the story. I guess it could be a great piece of fiction by a KKK member to attempt to discredit the innocent evacuees in Houston but I find it easier to believe that it is factual. I will concede that there could be some exaggeration being that this person is not a "professional journalist" that has the ability to leave his personal feelings out of his writings(sure, that happens).
    Being an immigrant that actually wanted to become an American there may also be some shock at what he witnessed. These are the same people that destroyed the Superdome and New Orleans Convention center in a matter of days and that I saw on local newscasts bitching immediately upon arrival at the Astrodome. Sure there are helpless decent people spread out in that large group but the stories of designer purses and strip clubs paid for with debit cards provided for with our taxes does also influence what I believe.
    On my last visit to New Orleans, I was treated rudely by numerous blacks, wether being waited on at Burger King, going to the zoo or walking down Bourbon Street, the hatred for whites was palatable. Their attitude wasn't that of the poor, envious of others that had money (I certainly don't project any symblance of money), It was a culpable general hatred of white people that sounded a lot like this guy felt at the Astrodome.
    A friend that I worked with at the City of Lafayette once told me that as a black woman she wouldn't even go to New Orleans, "the people there were different"(her words). She also said that once Morial was elected Mayor, the general attitude of the black population was that New Orleans was their city now and whites better stay out, I always thought that was pretty interesting . She and I were good friends and she was very candid with me, I was a younger naive white boy with a lot of questions and I think she enjoyed being able to educate me on the real world.
    She would say to be skeptical but also don't be naive, the ones you want to give the benefit of the doubt will steal your money, shoot you in the back , laugh at your funeral and have no trouble sleeping that night.

    I can tell you from personal experience that I saw none of the things you describe in my frequent drives around the Astrodome (I work in the Texas Medical Center nearby), nor during the Saturday night I volunteered as a doctor in the Astrodome the first weekend of the evacuation to Houston, nor during any of my regular ER shifts where I have cared for numerous displaced New Orleans residents.

    Every single patient I cared for was nothing but polite and utterly grateful for the help they have received. Yes, there were many black folks walking around the area....I suppose that might frighten some unfamiliar with such a sight. And I wouldn't try to tell anyone that there hasn't been any crime in Houston since these evacuees came to our town. But the fact is that crime in Houston has decreased compared to September of last year, and all these rumors of rapes and rampant crime in our city are nothing but fabrications.

    We have plenty of jobs for any of these unfortunate people who desire to take them. I welcome these new Texans to our state.

    Alright, you got me, I made it all up, these are all model citizens that are only looking to get a little help so they can pick themselves up by their bootstraps and go back to leading extraordinarily productive lives and raising their children to do the same. I am nothing more than poor white trash that is envious of such driven individuals that are optimistically looking to tackle the next challenge that unfairly is thrown at them by a racist like me.
    You're a doctor? Can you tell me why you guys make so much money? Why is health care so rediculously expensive? Do you drive a Mercedes, BMW, Porsche? How many homes do you have? Do you own an airplane? A big boat? Are you married to a partner that likes the money but hates the fact that you are never home? Do you fool around with nurses or just other doctors?
    How many Country Clubs do you have memberships too. Do you play a lot of golf with the best equipment and still suck at it? Do you preach to people to stop smoking and yet down 3 cigars a day?
    Sorry, just curious, these are just a few of the things I have found common among the doctors I have and do know. :laugh: I obviously have what some would say a bad attitude when it comes to doctors, I had to watch "doctors" take my vibrant father and within three week tear him down to 120 pounds of decaying flesh in a casket, forgive me if I don't genuflect when in the presence of one. Like teachers, I am sure there are good ones but an overwhelming amount are incompetent boobs that cost as many lives as they save.

    I thought so. At the very least, an e-mail from "one of your sister's friends" is no substitute for getting out of your trailer and coming down here to see for yourself (and maybe helping out a bit). I didn't accuse you of making it up, I just gave a personal account (and a reference, which you failed to do).

    Who asked you to? None of your questions are really pertinent to the thread at hand, are they?
