I keep this vid handy. When I feel depressed, that my vote won't count...I watch this and cry. I know that George Bush and all his racist rich friends...and his clones Rick Perry and Michelle Bachman and Mitt Romney all look at Hurricane Katrina and blame the black people and the poor white crackers for being dumb, for being poor, and for having faith in a country that promised them liberty and equality.
What America is under all the prettiness is this murderous neglect...on display during Katrina.
That the American govt over- reacted to Hurricane Irene is because we finally have a President and a government that finally gives a shit...a govt. that hasn't given a shit since Jimmy Carter.
The people of New Orleans were sacrificed...were murdered by the Bush admin...the undeniable racism is best seen raw...in the comments that Barbara Bush makes at the end of this video. That, folks, is racism.

"Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast with devastating force at daybreak on Aug. 29, 2005, pummeling a region that included the fabled city of New Orleans and heaping damage on neighboring Mississippi. In all, more than 1,700 people were killed and hundreds of thousands of others displaced."
