Racism: Alive and well

If anyone thought racism wasn't alive and well in the U.S., check out the following comment over on Dr. Phat Tony's:

Now that the water has began to subside and rebuilding efforts have started, it’s time for the poor black people of New Orleans to start with the long and hard process of re-accumulating the wealth and items that they lost during the hurricane. Luckily with the help of the Red Cross this is happening. Thos who did not get to loot, or were too late to steal anything of value, have another chance to go and get the things that will help them survive the next few months on someone else’s dime.

The same person who's falling over himself to give dollars to Halliburton billionaires is up in arms about helping people hit by the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. Hmmmmm. I wonder why?

Didn't even know you linked me, thanks. But the jist of the article wasn't over giving funds to the people that needed it. It was over people misapropriating the funds and buying Luxury items instead of say...food, but you can read into what you want. I have yet to buy stock in Haliburton or Brown and Root (unfortunately), so none of my personal money has gone there yet.
