This week marked the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which means it’s time for white Americans to look into the mirror and ask themselves what they have done to make life easier for the millions of impoverished Blacks they allowed to drown in New Orleans. The answer is, to put it bluntly, diddly squat. Despite all the promises to rebuild the
and restore it to its original chocolatey [sic] goodness, houses ripped from their foundations still rest in the middle of the streets, with large crowds of local politicians standing around wondering what Bush is going to do about it. Parts of the Chocolate City Gulf of Mexicoare still completely underwater. The thousands who fled haven't been offered enough cash incentives to come back, and the grinning skeletons of entire Black families who remained behind carpet the rooftops to this day, patiently waiting for rescue teams that will never come. Louisiana
Blame Bush! is spot on as usual...
For those of you who never had a chance to go to the Chocolate City before it was destroyed, here are some before and after pictures.
The beautiful trees
The rivers flowed with milk and chocolate
Then Katrina - a.k.a. kill the black people - stuck with a force that the world had never seen
As you can see, the chocolate river flooded the city
Now there are no more children eating from the candy trees
Thank you Mayor Wonka
