Now the race card is being played down South. (Do we really want to go there again?) Personally, I do not believe this has anything to do with race.
It has to do with economic status.
These are the poor, elderly, and sick stuck in the mess in Louisiana and Mississippi. They had no way out. No money. No transportation. Nowhere to go.
The first fault lies with the States for not having an evacuation plan in place after Camille hit in 1969.
The ultimate fault lies with the Federal Government for not stepping in much sooner when it was realized the States could not handle the situation.
I do not want to believe that no help was given because the majority of the people stranded are black. I really don't want to believe that.
We should be so far beyond that issue by now. I said should be.
I know racial issues still exist. They may always exist. I just don't want evidence from the President, FEMA, or any other governmental agency that this is the case.
Because if it is found to be true for this disaster, it could set our country back 200 years.....
And this time, I'd be fighting for the South.
