Dean Plays Race Card
Howard Dean played the race card yesterday by claiming that so many of the hurricane victims were poor and black. First of all some one should tell Howie that two thirds of New Orleans is black. Duh. Secondly, of course its the poor who mostly suffer disasters like this. Survival depends on resourcefulness, self reliance, and good desicion making. Traits that are not exactly found in those we call poor. I would estimate 90% of the poor in New Orleans and throughout the country do not have their own transportation and are dependent on the government or someone else. Once again I ask the mayor why were the buses not used to get them out of the city?
