Katrina racism debunked

Postby WidowMaker » Dec 16th, 2005 at 12:15 pm

"Statistics released by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals suggest that fewer than half of the victims of Hurricane Katrina were black, and that whites died at the highest rate of all races in New Orleans."

But, but..... Bush hates Black people!!!

AGREED - that was a great statistic, not that I wanted anyone to die, but funny that the poor white folks died in higher % than the poor black folks. I'm sick of the Jesse Jackson, Lewis Farrakan horsepoop that is spoon fed and eated up by so many.

obviously those numbers were made up to cover the true fact that over 95% of the people that died in new orleans were in fact black

I thought it was that the majority of people in america are white, so no matter what happens when something bad happens the majority of people effected are white? I haven't looked at the statistics lately but pretty sure poor white people still out number poor black people? Pure numbers, not percentages.

Yes, in fact, the majority of people in poverty are white. The claim was that in NO, the majority of people dying were black, and that our racist government chose not to respond because they were poor, black people. Now we know that there were almost as many white deaths as black, and that the white people died at a higher rate than the blacks.

Umm, how am I personally offended? If expoising the facts implies me to take any attack on Bush as a personal offense, then so be it, I guess.

I do take offense to people making wild accusations about such serious issues with reckless abandon andlittle to no real evidence to support such a claim. I am crazy like that.

actually, I know you bleeding heart liberals like to think that only the poor get killed in natural disasters, that somehow the middle class have enough money to BUY their safety, but again that is a false assumption that is not based on fact.

Uh oh! So if Katrina response wasn't biased against color, and wasn't biased against class, what was it biased against? Because we all know the evil gubment, lead by Dubya, had to be biased against something! I know! The slow response was due to Dubya's hatred for homosexuals! :roll:

Are you calling bullshit on the "fact" that there are more poor white people than black?

Black households had the lowest median income in 2004 ($30,134) among race groups. Asian households had the highest median income ($57,518). The median income for non-Hispanic white households was $48,977. Median income for Hispanic households was $34,241.


In 2003, among people who reported a single race, the poverty rate for non-Hispanic whites was 8.2 percent, unchanged from 2002. Although non-Hispanic whites had a lower poverty rate than other racial groups, they accounted for 44 percent of the people in poverty.

Today, I am just agreeing with everything that Kahuna posts.
