    So, I'm watching C-Span and they're walking around interviewing hurricane survivors, as they clean up or cook or just stand around wondering what to do. With the exception of some National Guard troops, all of them have been black.

    Now, here's what I find so interesting.

    They end each interview with "what would you like the government to do"

    What I'm hearing is that black people are supposed to be outraged at the Bush Administration and their institutional racism but every black person they've asked this question to has been pleased with the government's response and the closest thing I've heard to a criticism was, "we need help getting some of these trees out of the street, but they've got a lot of trees to clean up and we understand that they can't be everywhere".

    To a man, and woman, every black person they've talked to has taken the initiative and is refusing to criticize the government.

    What gives? Is it possible that we're not being told the truth by the "mainstream media"?

    Bunyon, since I posted this, they've talked to several more people

    Now, two Republican senators have been added to the mix and not one black person being interviewed had one cross word to say to them.

    In fact, one of them commended them on their efforts.

    Why this contradiction? I mean, really, it seems almost as if there should be some sort of black version of the Swift Boat veterans to stick up for these folks who are being run down as lazy and helpless by the media.

    I don't see how anyone can complain, but the democrats are thinking about next election, so they must make a stink, so as to use it in next elections.

    Did you see the ABC interview of a group of black hurricane victims after listening to the airing of Bush's speech the other day? It was a perfect example of what you are talking about here.

    THe interviewer kept asking the evacuees if they "felt anger at Bush" and if "they heard anything that gave them any hope at all." To a man (and woman) the evacuees had nothing but glowing words to say about the president.

    Then the kicker came when the reporter asked the last lady who she did blame for the problems, and she said "It's the mayor's fault!" SHe even managed to sound like the reporter ought to have known that already....I loved it.

    They cut back to the main reporting room after that.

    I saw that. Did you see the reporter look at the camera, bewildered, and say "well, no anger here."

    Priceless.

    I didn't actually see it, but I do know of it because Glenn Beck played the audio.

    I thought it was a bit odd that a reporter who's supposed to be unbiased is prodding the people to get a desired answer out of them but then, any illusions I had about ABC being a legitimate journalistic source went out the window with Peter Jennings' "Search for Jesus".

    Why John Stossel stays at this place, I have no idea.

    The great thing about C-Span is that, obviously, they have political biases - everybody does, but they do such a great job of staying out of it and letting the story tell itself.

    I'd like to see a newscast done by the people who put C-Span together.

    Anyway, one of the last guys they interviewed this morning, when asked, "what do you want the government to do", said that he and the people in his circle of family and friends understood that there was no reasonable way the government could have forseen the destruction wrought by Katrina/Rita. He went on to say, "We're waiting for a generator, but they still have to go through eight counties that are worse off than we are before they get to us, so we'll take just care of each other until they get here".

    My favorite guy was the guy bar-b-queing out in front of his house telling his neighbors to bring him the food in their freezer before it spoils and he'd cook it for them.

    I don't know why blacks would be mad. Every time I see a house being given away, it is to a black family. Aren't there any poor whites out there?

    Thank God for the freedom to express the truth
    on the internet this is our forum the truth cannot be stopped we thru Christ will not fail
    God Bless you all but in all fairness we are not
    black or white we are one Jesus has shown us the way and we will travel in it as Christians we should be leading the way but have left off our responsibilities to the unjust and while watching on the sidelines have allowed ourselves to be surrounded by the enemy whose god is Satan
    lets take it back under Christs leading and directing we must believe in God and ourselves and we must get involved in our families schools
    governments and most of all churches in other words watching over the affairs of man with God leading and we obeying and carrying out God's plan on the earth that He has given us Rise up church and take dominion we are the Head and not the tail we have the right and the responsibility
    may God help us in our endeavors and of course He has and He will

    I think a lot of things were exaggerated or picked out as being interesting news by the mainstream press. Rape and murder in the superdome was something that made good news, even though it proved to be a myth. What good news is there when people are saying "oh, I think the goverment is doing a good job, considering...". It's bigger news when you only show those that are complaining.

    People have to understand that there is no such thing as unbiased news.

    Liberal, biased media trying to discredit the Bush administration in a ny way they can.

    Have you heard the democrats are planning a filibuster of the nominee that will replace Justice O'Connor? The replacement hasn't been named, but the democrats are already planning on opposing the nomination. Incredible.

    "but the democrats are already planning on opposing the nomination. Incredible."

    That is bacause they have accomplished more of their agenda through the courts then they ever could through the legislatures and the congress. The courts have forced thier agenda on us when they never could have gotten the votes. The supreme court is the most powerful branch now and everyone knows it, which is why it is such a hight stakes game.
