First, I have read the tread that lead to this, & not to reopen a wound but isn't this
the lounge? For casual talk about things unrelated to Bonnevilles. In other words, off-topic stuff. Steve posted a topic regarding a artist that used his opportunity to voice HIS opinion on the lack of urgency that seemed to plague this tragedy.
Now I not going to say that Kanye West did the right thing at the right time. I'm guessing he agreed to a script but used his time instead to exercise his 1st amendment.
So now we have Steve using a forum for off topic stuff to post an agreement with a persons bad judgement of time to say what was on his mind. WELL WELL. That was Bad. Right?
Second, I also agree with what Mr West had to say. But I don't know if President Bush cares for Black people or not. But prior to the hurricane hitting it was stated that aid was in the area ready to help after the hurricane was over. What a lot of people have came to notice before & after Kanye made his statement was that the help was not there & when it finaly arrived it was not enough & in no kind of order.
I have family in all 3 areas & this is how they broke it down.
After the storm they were asked to leave their homes for safety. & told that at the dome they would have food & shelter. So now they arrive to find no more run. No health care
for the injuried and/or sick. No shelter. No order. & soon no more food or water. & thats by day two.
So now after two more days of sitting on the ground over whelmed by the foul order of urine, human waste, & die bodies. & not beening able to get any sleep you still have not
receive the help & aid that was advised you would have. It'* hot, your tired, your hungry, your dirty, your scared, & it seems like no one cares if you live or die. I ask yall, What would You DO? You get angry. You will steal to eat. Now people are yelling & fighting like animals. But that'* how they have been living for the past 3-4 days. & whats
funny is that people wonder why they are doing this.
Take any animal out of its home, don't fed it, don't shelter it, don't care for it, & let if sit
in the heat with other animals & throw a piece of meat at them after 3-4 days & see
Now the help you thought had arrived is given the right to shoot to kill! The food is not given out it is dropped from a helicoptor for the people, oops I'm sorry they use the term REFUGEES, to fight over. People are dying around you, kids are crying for food & water, there is no comunication, you have no idea how long this will continue, & all you
want is what was told you would get.
Third, You have the press showing all this & the only faces that seem to appear on the
screens are black faces. You tell me what think?
Steve may not have started that tread to say that this was a race thing. I don't know. But like he said he never once said race. That issue was asumed by the members that stated that. Due to Steve'* agreement with another mans statement. Interesting......
I do agree with Jim W. some what. But how can we learn to unite after a tragegy if
we all just move on & not address the issues. There was a problem how the help to the citizens not refugeees ( PLEASE! ) is being handle & people are dying because of that problem. & if we just move on we will never find out what it was!
Answer this question! Do yall think the country is more or less united after 9/11?
Love yall, I'm out..............
