    Moore Accuses Bush of Race-Based Response to Katrina
    By Nathan Burchfiel
    CNSNews.com Correspondent
    September 02, 2005

    (CNSNews.com) - In an open letter to President Bush posted on his Web site, liberal filmmaker and anti-war activist Michael Moore suggests that a delay in rescuing stranded residents of New Orleans was based on race and class.

    "It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands has no transportation to get out of town," Moore wrote. "C'mon, they're black! ... Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days?"

    Kanye West Rips Bush at Telethon
    Friday, September 02, 2005

    NEW YORK — It began, fittingly enough, with jazz from New Orleans natives Harry Connick Jr. and Wynton Marsalis. But "A Concert for Hurricane Relief," a heartfelt and dignified benefit aired on NBC and other networks Friday night, took an unexpected turn thanks to the outspoken rapper Kanye West (search).

    Appearing two-thirds through the program, he claimed "George Bush doesn't care about black people" and said America is set up "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible."

    It is very unfortunate that truth must be suppressed in the interest of political correctness. It does great ongoing harm to the nation.

    Thanks, the Congressional Black Caucus is in on the act, too.

    While this man sits in his mansion, drinking champagne with his "garden tool/women". I don't recall seeing him in New Orleans in his Hummer taking his "brothers" to safety.

    These people make me sick. Instead of playing the blame game and the race card, why don't they go down to the city themselves and physically help?

    Why do they have to make everything about race? They make me want to puke.

    And thus it begins. The Bush hate machine is just getting warmed up, and they’re more organized than before! We’ll have protests, calls for impeachment, lawsuits, editorials, and pundits. They’ve got the plan just about together. They have the race card, the poor people, ties to the military in Iraq, and global warming.

    Hey OldRegular, you want to see Bush haters, well you’re gonna get em’! They’ll come like ‘rats deserting a sinking ship’. The long list of ‘usual suspects’ will be swarming like flies to get in front of a new camera. But, eventually the sewer will back up and overflow into this discussion board.

    To me, a scene all quite amusing. Yet, it’s a sequel I’ve seen too many times before. Enjoy!

    I don't think the evacuation process was so much about race as it was about socio-economic class. Those people who had cars or access to other means of leaving tended to get out. Those who did not, most of whom were poor blacks, did not. That's the way it works in a free market society unless the government steps in and saves the poor.

    Well, the government didn't do much for four days and are now just starting to get involved probably due to political pressure. Bush initially seemed content to fly low over the area and say how sorry he was about the plight of those left behind.

    Those who believe that NO Americans should get abandoned like this need to speak out and also speak out against the cuts in federal spending for the New Orleans area Army Core of Engineers and for allowing for the development of wet areas around NO. Both of these two decisions made the situation worse. The levees broke because they were only designed to withstand a Class 2 or 3 hurricance not a Class 5 like Katrina. Why? They money was cut from the budget.

    75% chance it is accurate. Black people no longer have any political clout except in a few large cities. Black people can't swing any national elections. Mexicans are the new minority power. Can't have poor black people occupying valuabe land. They will be treated like the Indian People but without treaty rights.

    How will our owners cause a disaster in Detriot and Cleveland?

    I rather appreciated it. Satire is especially effective for it's relationship with truth.

    Some of you mat have seen it on Fox. An environmental type for the city of NO? complained that the people stranded in the predominantly white suburbs were being ignored.
