The Glenda Moore Sandy sTOry!

One of the saddest tales in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is the story of Glenda Moore, a Staten Island woman whose two children – Connor, age 4, and Brandon, age 2 – were swept away by a storm surge. Moore reportedly knocked on her neighbors’ doors, begging for help, but no one would help her.

Glenda Moore is black. Her husband, Damien Moore, is white. Staten Island, New York City’s fifth and often forgotten borough, is 64% white. Unfortunately, these facts are pertinent to this story.

When two children of an Upper West Side family were allegedly murdered by their nanny, many people criticized the children’s mother, Marina Krim, for having a nanny. If, as Salon Magazine put it, the Krim case “unleashed an onslaught of trolls”— the Moore tragedy has launched an avalanche of particularly vicious trolling.

A person posting as PCwriter posted the following comment about Moore on CNN:

“Yes the mother should go to hell for putting her children in harms way…. I feel bad for the children who lost their lives. Seeing that they had to depend on an irresponsible mother. Poor children never had a chance.”

As a mother, I can assure PCWriter that Glenda Moore, after losing her babies, is already in hell. Should Moore have evacuated sooner? Perhaps, but does it matter? A mother and father lost their two young children in the storm. Shouldn’t we have compassion for them?

She lost 2 sons during Hurricane Sandy, yet no outpouring nor sympathy or support for her or her husband, the media completely forgotten their story, no one collected a dime for her, but close to $1 MILLION was collected for that fat old lady who got made fun of by kids on a school bus.
Go figure.
Do you think race played a factor?
I think so.

No one cares because she's black.
If she were blond, white and lost 2 sons, their would be non stop media coverage, an appearance on every talk show, money pouring in from all over, and an investigation as to what happened to her sons.

Exactly. Race is a factor. No doubt.

I did not see the 121212 concert that they are claiming 2 billion people watched and will be making donation to sandy victims. I would like to know if anyone gave the Moore family a shout out. It is a shame how this story is being played out. It says alot about this country.

Glynda Moore is Super storm Sandy's number 1 victim and why is no reaching publicly to support her such as the mayor or a pop star. No coming to together. Interesting.

Race is the defining factor in her plight, she isn't a blond, white female so she doesn't matter.
It's the way it's always been and always will be in a racist and biased media and society.

On a sunny Friday morning in an idyllic Connecticut town, we became a nation where a young man in combat attire armed with his mom’s guns allegedly gunned down 20 kids at an elementary school along with the school’s principal and five other adults before he took his own life.
We then became a nation where the surviving teachers gathered the surviving kids of Sandy Hook Elementary School in a nearby firehouse and made lists of their names.
Where panicked parents arrived at the firehouse and looked frantically for the little face they wanted to see more than they had ever wanted anything else and checked the lists for the name they prayed would be there.
“Mommy!” a little girl called out, and a mother shrieked with relief and joy.
Where parents who did not see the face or the name were taken aside and asked for their own name and the name of their child.
“A process of elimination unfortunately,” said Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance.
Where those heart-torn parents who hoped—harder than they had ever hoped for anything before—to go home with their child were instead assigned a state trooper to assist them and ensure their privacy.
Where those parents no doubt kept hoping against all hope as the youngsters who had been pronounced dead at the school still lay there as the crime scene was processed and the formal identifications were made.

Reparations. Puh-leeeeze.

Every black idiot in the USA loves to bring this up. It never dies. Like the murderer from the Friday the 13th movies.

I wouldn't camp out next to your mailbox waiting for a check.

You stand a better chance of landing on Alpha Centauri and returning back to Terra Firma before that happens.
