This makes so much sense that it's actually pretty depressing...

Thanks for the info.

Louisiana is full of boats, like Florida and the coast of Georgia are.

Just that reality makes you wonder if maybe the entire problem isn't the people who live there.

All them boats around and people were dying from exposure and dehydration...Why?.

I don't quite understand what your point is, but I really want to, could you clarify it for me?

Don't forget what happened on Danziger Bridge.


Louisiana survivors stopped by Louisiana police.
Group of survivors talks their way past the blockade.
A blockade ordered by ... ....
... .... ... ... the Louisiana National Guard Command was in Iraq.
.......so Who ordered New Orleans blockaded?




I am not disagreeing with you.
I was there.







I survived Katrina four blocks from the coast in Biloxi.


We were hit far worse than New Orleans.
But I saw N.O. get all the coverage, all the negativity, and watched as the narrative laid it at the feet of anyone the choose. With complete disregard for the facts, circumstances, and situations.

The media has been an agenda driven lying machine our whole lives.
But they were telling you the truth about Katrina?

Boats float on water and are used for travel ON water.

TRUE STORY

A friend, his church group, 200 people, 50 boats on trailers.
The caravan sets out from Baton Rouge to New Orleans.
Stopped on every highway and Interstate by the guest Guardsmen.

Turned back.


They had to sneak in using the old bayous.
It was never reported.
They rescued about a thousand people.

He's got a couple of funny stories about it, and a couple of sad stories about it.

Would have been much more if they could have gotten there sooner, and didn't have to travel so far by boat to do it.

Who knows how many people we never heard about, were turned back and prevented from helping.

a reply to: wheresthebodyWhy do you select only black folk? There was an awful lot of white folk that suffered the same in Louisiana. Don't their lives matter?

Why were people forced to wait on roof tops and such when there were plenty of civilians in the area who owned boats to ferry them to dry land and safety?.

Or did the authorities declare a kind of "martial law" and basically make it unlawful for people to go help their neighbors?.

I assumed that most of the boats were unreachable... but if people were stopped from accessing them... that's terrible.

Fair enough, Canada indeed has a dark history, just look into the horrors of native schools, or the japanese internment camps durring ww2.

But do you feel that the mishandling of the Katrina relief efforts appeared to be the result of racism to those most impacted by it?


I still say its more about Culture, not skin color.

Just because an area happens to be predominately black, doesn't make it racist.

Louisiana has a long, strong, Cultural history. Some good, some not so good, some bad.

If we are talking about Kentucky and "hillbillies" - - - does anyone ever mention race? No, they talk about Culture and History.

yes, racism was the impact of BLM, not just Louisiana.



Care to give us an example? From what I gathered, the initial incident that started BLM was found to be justified without a hint of racism. Not just by some po-dunk police department, but the justice department as well.

And just for the sake of clarity, I'm not arguing for or against BLM, just about the origins.


BLM started after the criminal Mike Brown was shot and the "hands up dont shoot " myth was promoted by our leftist media.


Ahh I was thought it was the Trayvon Martin incident.

It proved FEMA wasn't all it was said to be and a large failure when it counted.

It wasn't FEMA.

It was those in charge in Louisiana.

I would say both had a part. I don't think FEMA was racist, maybe the local government, IDK, I don't live there.

It wasn't FEMA.

It was those in charge in Louisiana.

Not to mention Bush gave to the top jobs to people with little experience. That helps when the SHTF.

An Editorial/Opinion?

I suppose you don't remember the grilling of FEMA in the aftermath. We'll just pretend they were great and call it over.

Actually, I did a lot of research on various "leaning" sites.

Like trying to find the truth of Hillary's emails.

Depends on who you "listen" to.

When a specific group is highly overrepresented in crime is it not merely a rational response to be more suspicious towards them?

If not in this case when is profiling warranted if at all?
