    Gotta love that free advice. They get it from the same stations that pass out the STUPID. He’d fare better broken down in one of “those” neighborhoods than a “lazy poor black” person would in his, I’m sure.

    This kind of “advice” is coming not only from Texas, but from Florida, Alabama and all kinds of places. I’m sure those of us who didn’t get FEMA money or anything else have all been told by such folks that if our skin color was a bit darker or if we’d been named Tyrone or Laquisha, we’d have gotten the big bucks.

    Where is that eye-roll icon when I need it? It’s wasted effort to try to ‘splain.

    …and I wanna see the circuituous route he drives to avoid “those” neighborhoods. Huh?

    I sincerely appreciate all the folks who have come to the Gulf Coast to help, regardless of the reasons (altruism, money, whatever). And I suppose part of it is listening to their sometimes obtuse opinions. But it’s seriously hard for me to keep my mouth shut sometimes.

    Yep, they all have poor areas they like to ignore. Too bad, they had to see New Orlean’s poor areas up close and personal. If they could just sweep it under the rug like they do in their hometowns…

    yes, I was just in florida for thanksgiving, and I heard a lot of stuff like this. I got tired of being quizzed by people who just don’t understand why katrina was different for New Orleans than hurricanes that hit them.
