After Katrina hit mostly black New Orleans, Jesse Jackson was quick to blame the disorganized federal response on white racism. President Bush was faulted for not immediately being there and showing he cared.
But yesterday, as Rita came ashore in mostly white areas of Texas and Louisiana, where was Jackson? In D.C., standing arm-in-arm with yesterday’s news, Cindy Sheehan, protesting the war. Doesn’t he care about white people?
Hey, Rev. Jesse, why don’t you get back down there and do something useful? I suggest buttoning your lip and rolling up your sleeves.
I won’t hold my breath.
