Wow
now that is a racist thing to say.
Its too bad T&C doesnt cover all forms of racial hatred, instead of slurs alone.


Aaaaawwww. Gimme a break. What the hell is this? I'm being labelled racist for giving FACTS? Where do you live? Disneyland?

I don't know where you live but where I live and what I have been experiencing living around black people MOST of them are not as nice as other types of people.

What is wrong with white people in America these days? You can't say FACTS about other races than whites without being a racist?

What kind of bull is this. I don't know where you live buddy. But it seems that you NEVER live anywhere near where there is a high population of black people. It doesn't take a genius to figure that MOST of them are aggressive.

One thing I can't stand about people is HYPOCRISY. Which is insincerity by virtue of pretending you believe what is not reality.

I'm seeing this kind of bull**** righteous HYPOCRISY on the rise these days. And that's dangerous in assessing the real virtues in people other than yourself.

ATS has been a breeding ground for these type of people lately....

Stop feeling guilty of yourselves because of your forefathers. Those days are
over.

Do you really think the young black people who wear pants on their knees know the sacrifices made during the American Civil war?

why does this argument always have to turn into something racially charged? this is why there is racism around in the country still, because people FORCE it up in coversations. nobody have been on here say they are black and that is the reason they looted, murdered and killed, because they are black and black people are killers

FYI: i didn't say that as a racist comment, only to show how silly it is.

instead of condoning it, why dont you talk about something else?
His own statements prove themselves wrong if you have any decency.

You want to prove a racist wrong? Let them keep talking.

Stop calling me a racist.

I wasn't being rasict. I was just stating FACTS.

FACTS FACTS FACTS that you get from living in THE REAL WORLD.

What's wrong with you people? Have you ever made contact with the human population before?

I can't believe you people are so blind by hypocrisy and false pretense.

These are facts. Most of them are aggresive. Just read statistics on crimes in the US, the number of black people incarcerated, etc etc.

Jeesus haven't you people read official articles and papers?

Papers? no, I tend to get my information from first hand knowledge. You want to talk about facts, where are yours? you have probably met about .000002 % of the black population in america yet from your perspective this is majority?

hell, i live in Austin Texas. we welcomed the refugees into our town warmly record donations, and they were taken care of. and honestly since they have gotten here, this city went to hell in a hand basket

i actually had a customer come in to rent a RV, he filled out the forms and officially booked it, there is a 500 non refundable deposit, and when he cancelled 5 days later because he can;t plan for #, he tried telling me i have to refund his money to him because he is a Katrina victim, i told him that doesn't affect his ability to plana trip out.

EXACTLY what i am thinking

anyone who uses slavery today as an excuse to act thuggish is simply riding the coat tails of the people who had to REALLY suffer. it's pathetic that anyone would use something that happened OVER 100 years ago, as an excuse to act in ANY way.

nobody alive today can say they lived through slavery, therefore nobody alive today should be able to use it as an excuse to break the law.

1 out of every 100 americans is in prison

1 out of every 9 or 10 black people are in prison.......


i don't think his numbers are skewed, i think you just don't want to acknowledge facts because it would make you realise that while yes, there are A LOT of truly good and genuine black people out there, most of them have been indoctrinated since a very young age that white people are bad, and living the thug life is how you get rich and powerful

I disagree and not to stray too far off topic, I don't think most view white people as bad. The glamorization of thug life is a problem and I will agree with you there

The facts are that there is (gasp) looting in the Midwest flood areas. We received daily reports of people looting, and warnings of people posing as FEMA reps to rob homes, etc.

Those are the facts.

I live here. I'm living through it. Good enough for you, or do you want me to have a reporter contact you directly. I can always ask, but they are a bit busy right now.

do a service? your poor grammar belies your lack of intelligence. to broadly qualify all of the residents of new orleans as lazy; "no work ethic", suggests that you are prone to stereotyping people, or events, as you see fit. that in and of itself is lazy, as you don't then have to think about people living out complicated situations as individuals, but use your prejudice to make judgements about people you don't know.

walk a mile in another persons shoes. during katrina, people were trapped in the city, by water, by poverty, by ignorance. do we fault people in iowa for the situations that poor planning has produced? WHEN THE AMERICAN CITIZENS IN NEW ORLEANS TRIED TO LEAVE THEY WERE TURNED AWAY AT GUNPOINT.

This may be beyond the scope of your intellect, but try to understand that many of these people were left with no choice. Your sympathy, though unnecessary, would admit some measure of kindness.

i lived through this. i work 70 hours a week and make more money than you. i rebuild the new orleans economy every day. you are pointing fingers from hundreds of miles away.

your lack of reason is your own dysfunction, try not to open your mouth unless you know what you are talking about.

And why blame them for that? They were in the middle of chaos just trying to survive. What happened happened and the insurance companies should pick up the tab. If I were caught up in that hellhole and freezing cold, the last thing I would be doing is trying to find the store owner to pay for the coat I need. People in NO lost everything, and with the absence of aid for days of course they needed to ignore normal law and order to survive. Normal law and order ignored them...

This thread is infested with mildly disguised racism and no common sense.


It was August 29 when Katrina hit. You ever been to NOLA in August? Not exactly coat wearing weather. And the absence of aid was apparent. Thats why they needed thos TV's, cars, electronics, etc. Because those are the basic needs in any survival situation. People think its food, shelter, and water.....but its not. Its LCDs, bling, and threads.

Another difference is that when the evacuation order came down, people complied.

The midwestern work ethic well known. I wouldnt expect the people in the middle of America to have done anthing less.
