I'm over here in Iraq and a lot of our guys have families back home affected by this tragedy. 1 member in particular has taken a Leave Without Pay or LWOP to help out his friends and family. They've literally lost everything, and he's trying to get a few of them jobs working over here, just so they have a roof over thier heads and food to ear. So lets all take a breath. Put aside our differences, and help out those who really need us right now. EVeryone there needs our thoughts and prayers.
    Maybe you should email this to mr. west, and the congressional black caucus,etc. seems most people of ALL races (including myself) have volunteered to help in the region, but leave it to a few to make something of it. like other folks we can rant and rave, but seems racism is always an excuse.

    Most of the brothers here would be the first to break a window or door to get life sustaining supplies, but to watch two N.O. cops walking thru wal-mart with a shopping cart, or skells taking plasma screen TV's is sickening.

    BTW, stay safe over there, and thank you for your service... get home soon.

    Screw anyone outside the US who doesn't like it. Ya know what? If you don't like it, then you must be so upset that you will no longer accept the likely millions of dollars in foreign aid we give your country. WE have a better use for it anyway.

Until you have lived as a POOR black person in the ghetto, (or a poor latino in the bario, or a poor white person in a trailer park,) you really can have no opinion on how a poor black person feels when he walks into a grocery store, or when you can see 2 different news stories in New Orleans, one showing a black person after "looting" and another showing a white person "looking" for food.
    I have heard this argument a lot the last few days - yet nobody has provided a source/pictures/captions from which these accusations are made.

    I have seen stories of blacks and whites " looking for food". I have also seen some footage of blacks carrying off TV's, stacks of Nike shoes, and DVD players - now that is LOOTING SIR!

    Now IMO - taking TV's is just stupid - you cant eat a TV - I dont think its racist to call them looters - if the shoe fits......

    Now i only say I have seen blacks because thats what the media shows - I am sure there are whites, hispanics, and Aliens doing the same thing.

    Oh and kanye west can kiss my @#*...... and I would still treat him as any other pt with top care...unless he would refuse my help since I am White

    Kanye West is a tool. If he was that concerned he could have gone down to help out. Maybe he could have chartered some busses to evacuate people. Better yet, he could have asked the Mayor of N.O. if he could use the 300 or so school buses sitting idle for the task in a yard in N.O.

    However right or wrong you may feels his comments were I think they were inappropriate and his timing sucked a**. Just my .02 cents, your mileage may vary.
