The point was that rich white america labeled these victims in everyway possible to strip them of their American citizenship...and distance these people from other American citizens.
calling them 'Refugees"...instead of "storm victims" is one level of racism.
Howard Stern discusses this in the mornings. Even he is fed up with how the gov. responded!
Whats the definition of a refugee Del? Someone displaced from there home or place of resdence becuase of flood,fire,famine,disease or conflict. They are refugees because there homes were destroyed by the flooding. And yes, most of the people there are black, and poor. But the color of your skin has nothing to do with ur financial status. Im white and im fuckin broke to shit. Sadly some people do make stupid or unsensitive comments, i know becuase i have as well. I could care less what wolf blitzer says, as long as the people there are reciving help and food personally he can say whatever the fuck he wants. All that we should be caring about is wether or not people are recvivng food and health care as needed.
