News-Bush- Katrina deaths
With all the racist talk after Katrina, the numbers show a greater percentage of whites died than any other race. Lets not forget what some people said:
- Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in October said that the Federal Emergency Management Agency wasn't fit to help the storm's victims because "there are not enough blacks high up in FEMA" and added that, "certainly the Red Cross is the same."
- "George Bush doesn't care about black people." Rapper Kanye West
- Damu Smith, founder of the National Black Environmental Justice Network, in September said that the federal government "ignored us, they forgot about us ... because we look like we look."
But this report shows all the racist remarks aimed at Bush were not founded. All the racist statements made were a slap in the face to rescuers, firemen, and police.
