They're lying

Gretna's police chief Arthur Lawson claims ... racism had no part in the decision to stop evacuees on the bridge with guns and shotguns.

I don't believe him. For one, his own citizens paint a very different picture.

I just spoke with someone from the Governor's office. I stressed to them that the WestBank is the only dry area of town and that they must do something to protect it. It would be a shame to lose through human destruction what wasn't destroyed by Katrina.

All of you who have phone service - call this number NOW

1-866-366-1121

Thanks Cheryl

SO GET FOOD FOR THEM ALSO...

Please call for the National Guard at the above number!

As Salaam Alaikum,
There is NOTHING that suggest that this situation (katrina and hte response) has to do with RACISM. NOTHING. Class, but not race.

athird, there's such a thing as subtext

Class and race can't be so neatly compartmentalized. They are inextricably linked.

The construction of white identity arises from primarily hidden ideologies, one of which is racism.

The color of the faces of those in power has not changed so much. A few people of color here and there in positions of "power" palcate the people, give the semblance of equality, keep people "happy" (enough) and oppressed.

MJ's right about the correlation of race and class. The thing is, in New Orleans, yes, there are poor whites, but the lowest class is quite nearly entirely Black. And not just Black, but really Black.

Leila, I am really sorry about that dentist. I am so glad I don't live in Tulsa!

do you really think it's a tulsa thing? I'd feel a bit better if it was a freak occurence

I don't know --- actually, I shouldn't say because it's been s long since I lived in Tulsa.

But Tulsa, in my experience, was always a very cliquish, very --- well, nasty place. Yes, there were (and are) nice people there --- always have been --- but one of the hazards of Tulsa has always been the presence of people like that dentist. I mean, it isn't necessarily a Christian thing --- it's the manifestation of self absorbed, self important, provencial boobs. And that, in my experience, is how best to describe a lot of people who live in Tulsa.

It's honestly not just a Christian thing.
