I have often wondered why black "leaders" and orginizatons don't offer more help to black youth both male and female regarding having babies out of wedlock, a life of crime and drugs. There are actually more opportunities for blacks to move ahead in life that white people, just forget the racist part as black people can rise as far as they want to in this country as opportunities are out there!

I seriously doubt that if you wanted to ride one of those buses, you would not be turned away. I see ignorance in my home state is still flourishing.

My tax dollars at work. I wonder what the reaction would be if the article had said "shuttle whites"?

How ironic..but I guess thats the south..Complain..Complain..Com plain..llike freggin 2nd graders. U (bloggers) will NEVER be more than the cowards you are..Am I wrong? Prove it...not by blogging back and saying I'm a dumb liberal (been there done that) GET OUT AND DO SOMETHING..We are all waiting....

I take it personally that you sir, with all of your ignorance think that it was only black people that were in the Super Dome. People of all races were there as well. You should clean you trailer park trash contaminated mind and consider that without the use of plumbing, places to sleep and/or eat of course it would be dirty after 3 days. Think about a basketball and/or football arena or even hurricane evacuation center. Pretend for a moment that it can't be cleaned for 3 days...there you have the super dome. Bourbon St. is just as dirty and the population of blacks that frequent that area is low. You reap what you sow and if this is your thinking, you are sure to meet your maker with a back a turned.

It's pretty Obvious that the Urban League would endorse anything Obama says. After all, we already know that 90% of blacks in America are voting for Obama simply because he is black. What a double standard !!!
Let's focus on what's best for America, instead of trying to elect a black President, at any cost.

I did not know it was safe in an arena for white people. We all know what happened to white people in that arena after Katrina. Rapes, assaults, even murder.
