Vultures Row: Bush is Responsible for Cannibalism

Bush is Responsible for Cannibalism

It seems Bush was ALMOST responsible for cannibalism.

Robinson has posted a retraction

RETRACTION: The claim in the first sentence in my post was incorrect. I had been told this was happening, but these claims have turned out to be unsubstantiated. I therefore retract them -- but stand behind everything else I wrote without reservation.

So Bush was NOT responsible for cannibalism, but the race bating hatred was the real intent of his article.

No, seriously it’s true. We read it on the internet

Randall Robinson, in a piece for The Huffington Post, that President Bush forced Blacks in New Orleans to eat dead people.

Before we address his article, we would like to ask the Huffington Post what kind of editorial process, if any, do they have?

Robinson: I have an article I want you to post
HuffPost: Um, OK, is it factual?
Robinson: well… um, uh…
Huffpost: well, does it at least blame Bush for something?
Robinson: That is does!
Huffpost: Go ahead and put it up.

I think someone over there should for at least look at what goes up in their name.
"It is reported that black hurricane victims in New Orleans have begun eating corpses to survive. Four days after the storm, thousands of blacks in New Orleans are dying like dogs. No-one has come to help them."

Reported where? What is the link? Please cite your source.
Four days? These people can’t eat for four days before resorting to cannibalism? The storm hit Monda, food was arriving on Friday, hundreds of stores were looted “for food” in the meantime, you are saying that they had to eat bodies to survive?
Again, we ask, WHAT IS YOUR SOURCE?
"I am a sixty-four year old African-American. New Orleans marks the end of the America I strove for."

What does your race have anything to do with your point in this "paragraph”? is the America that you strove impossible because you are 64 years old?

I am a thirty-seven year old diabetic. No, Mr. Robinson I doubt this America, which you vowed to quit, and by the way, have not done so yet, is the racist America you wanted to build. (Do you see how we linked to our source there, Mr. Robinson? That is so our readers will find our arguments more credible when they read them)
"I am hopeless. I am sad. I am angry against my country for doing nothing when it mattered."

On the first two points we whole heartedly agree. On the third, we have to agree once again about your anger but regarding the rest, we disagree. America is doing something. Americans are doing a lot of things. From giving money to donating supplies to opening enrolment at schools for displaced children. America, maybe not the racially divided one you pine for but America is responding and doing something.
"This is what we have come to. This defining watershed moment in America’s racial history. For all the world to witness. For those who’ve been caused to listen for a lifetime to America’s ceaseless hollow bleats about democracy. For Christians, Jews and Muslims at home and abroad. For rich and poor. For African-American soldiers fighting in Iraq. For African-Americans inside the halls of officialdom and out."

How the hell is this a watershed moment in America’s racial history? Is it because you want to use this as a further wedge between our races? We see rescue workers of all colors on the ground in New Orleans. We see victims of all colors in New Orleans. We see AMERICANS of all colors donating money, food, cleaning product, diapers, and their time and love to the people of New Orleans. How is this racial thing?

As for the rest of your “paragraph” it is just a collection of sentence fragments. We can not figure out what the point is. If taken in context with the first sentence, there is no logic in the flow of the paragraph. If taken by themselves, well, again what it the point?
"My hand shakes with anger as I write. I, the formerly un-jaundiced human rights advocate, have finally come to see my country for what it really is. A monstrous fraud."

We have no doubt you shake in anger. You should get help, anger leads to stress. Hypertension is one of the leading medical killers of African-Americans, plewase seek help. The only fraud here is you. You wish to see hate and oppression, you can not look beyond your own frame of reference to the good that is happening; you can only see racial strife. Again, we offer the suggestion that you do seek help for your anger.
"But what can I do but write about how I feel. How millions, black like me, must feel at this, the lowest moment in my country’s story."

You could get up and come to Houston and cook for the homeless, you could go to Mississippi and help clear damage, you could go help remove boddies in New Orleans, Biloxi, or Gulf Port, you could write a check to the red cross, or if that offends you to a Black Church here in Houston to help them fund thier releif efforts. There are many things you could do other than stoking the fires of a racial hatred.
