I’m sure you remember when Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans and thousands of homes were destroyed, and activists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were all over the TV news saying it’s President Bush’s fault, that he didn’t do enough about the insufficient levees and that he didn’t visit there quick enough and he didn’t get all the people out of the flooded areas. Bush took a lot of blame for that situation, and some of the activists were saying he didn’t care about black people.
Well, now the Midwest has flooded, including almost all of Iowa. Thousands of homes and businesses have been destroyed because of torrential rains plus broken levees, and it continues to get worse. Also, thousands of acres of food crops were destroyed. Was George W. Bush there the next day to visit? No. (He was in Europe, but maybe he should’ve got over here right away.) Did he fix the levees before the storms to protect all those white people and their crops? Nope. Has he sent money to the people who didn’t buy insurance to protect their property? No. So what’s the deal? Obviously, President Bush doesn’t care about white people. It’s so clear now. He is prejudiced against Caucasian-Americans and European-Americans.
But where is the outrage? Millions of people have been affected by this flood in the U.S. Midwest, and where are the white activists? Who will stand up for these people? Doesn’t anyone care? Who will hold Bush and the government accountable?
So by now you might have guessed that this is satire. Although, the facts are based on actual news, and there is a parallel between Hurricane Katrina and the flooding in the Midwest. But there was advance warning and predictions about what happened in New Orleans, Louisiana. So why is one a greater outrage than the other among the political and racial activists?
