Finally, the Truth About Katrina-It Was All Racial...

It looks like Katrina wasn't so bad after all. There was no looting, no rapes, no killing, no gangs, no shootings or anything else like that going on in and around the super dome and other places where the refugees went.

'Times-Picayune Editor Jim Amoss cited telephone breakdowns as a primary cause of reporting errors, but said the fact that most evacuees were poor African Americans also played a part.'

"If the dome and Convention Center had harbored large numbers of middle class white people," Amoss said, "it would not have been a fertile ground for this kind of rumor-mongering."

Well, there you have it. It was all a racial lie, started to demean a bunch of really nice black people who wouldn't do anything to harm anyone.

Even Alan Coombs of Fox News got in on trying to demean those nice folks.

Fox News, a day before the major evacuation of the Superdome began, issued an "alert" as talk show host Alan Colmes reiterated reports of "robberies, rapes, carjackings, riots and murder. Violent gangs are roaming the streets at night, hidden by the cover of darkness.
"Wait, here's another blurb from the dome:

Louisiana National Guard Col. Thomas Beron, who headed security at the Superdome, said that for every complaint, "49 other people said, 'Thank you, God bless you.'"

There; as you can see, there couldn't have been anything bad going on. For every one person who complained, "Please help me. Someone has raped me and killed my child and beat up my husband," 49 others said, "Thank you,-God bless you!"

Well, hell, that's not bad. Let's see...there were @91,000 evacuees in both the super and astro domes at one time or another...now, everytime one person reported a rape, a killing or a beating, 49 said, "Thank you, God bless you,"...let's see,-that would make only 1857 rapes, killing and beatings.

Looking at it like that, it wasn't so bad after all. Not as bad as New Orleans before the hurricane. (of course, that's just a rumor) Now I guess those people who did the evil things will get away with it because it didn't happen to at least half the people there and, besides, most of the people who were raped, killed and beat up were "poor African Americans," as were the people who were doing the raping, killing and beating.

What a relief learning about this is. Now I guess, if I can count the right number of people (49 - all poor African Americans) I see who say,"Thank you. God bless you," it will be all right to either rape, kill or beat up the next person. It'd be my luck to pick that really mean woman who played the mad truck driver on 'Monk,' and I'd wind up getting raped, killed or beat up myself. Forget it!

OK, OK, maybe I'm full of it. Or just maybe people are already looking for a way out of having to prosecute the people who really did commit the rapes, killings and beatings...beacuse they, also, are "poor African Americans." (like OJ and Kobe, maybe) I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Maybe we can now understand why the kid got away with attempted murder at Watts when he smashed a guys head in with a brick-on camera. He, too, was just a "poor African American."

As usual, no one is to blame for anything. It was all a mistake. Thank God there were no middle class white people there. No telling what would have happened.
