George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People

We all know about the devastation that Hurricane Katrina has caused. We also know of the government's intentional failure to appropriately handle the aftermath. Tens of thousands were stranded in the city. Most of them were poor, black people.
Leave it to George Bush to appoint a fellow moron to an important position in a time of crisis. Michael Brown, (until recently) director of FEMA, had already had a stellar track record of incompetence and immorality.

Back in 2004, after Hurricane Frances, Brownie allocated over $30 million to Miami, Florida. This would have been the right thing to do had Miami been damaged at all by the storm. It didn't come close. The "computer glitch" that caused this error also left tens of thousands of needy people without the help of FEMA.

He certainly was qualified for the job. His previous position was Judges and Stewards Commissioner for the International Arabian Horse Association. A lofty title that had nothing to do at all with emergency management.

He would later resign amid criticism of corruption, incompetence and falsification of information on his resume, but not before botching the rescue effort in New Orleans. President Bush, who is by far the most in-tune individual ever, congratulated Brown just days before his resignation, "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job!" I suppose by Bush's standards he was. You can read impartial information about Michael D. Brown at the fabulous Wikipedia.

The hurricane has sent millions of Americans on a donating spree. But just as it happeneded with 9/11, only a small fraction of these contributions will make it to New Orleans. I myself donated $50 to Wikipedia, where my money will go the farthest and help the most.

NBC Networks and The Red Cross hosted a live, televised "Concert for Hurricane Relief" telethon. Though I missed it because I refuse to pay for cable, I did catch the only interesting part of it. It speaks for itself but I am sure many of you will not take the time to watch.Kanyeye West, though obviously an idiot, made one solid point on this show before he was cut off. You'll have to watch the entire video to see. It can be found below on someon else's blog.
