Wow.....But no different than if you got a few locals around here talking about Hispanics......Either way it's wrong!
Pretty mild for a bunch of Cajuns!
Racism doesn't exist, but political correctness does.
Probably not the best setting for a truly non-alcoholic beverage influenced interview, so I think this reporter got what she was obviously seeking. Racism is wrong in any setting, under any circumstances, but the sentiments expressed were not entirely off the mark---none of us far removed can judge what hardships persons of all races have had to endure in post-Katrina New Orleans.
I guarantee not one of those morons went to LSU.How embarassing for the college that douchebags like end up as de-facto "spokesmen" for their school. My personal feeling is that anyone who lives in N.O. shouldn't be surprised if there's a hurricane and their house floods. Just like anyone who lives in CA shouldn't be surprised if their home is destroyed in an earthquake. Hell If my house is destroyed in a tornado I would have half-expected it. I lump these jerk-offs in with all of the other people who are dumb enough to live in a sewer like N.O. no matter what their race. They're all daft.
Dollar to a donut these guys are either cops or firefighters(maybe the ONLY white ones.)
I don't get the point of the video. Like, why was that woman doing 'man-on-the-street' interviews at a tailgate party anyway?
If he hadn't used the N word, could you argue with what they are saying?
No I couldn't 2:09
This scenerio could be repeated, no matter the racial make-up of the group, as long as the common denominator of mass quantities of liquid courage is applied. I can't believe anyone would be surprised to find out that there is racial tension in this country or that it runs both ways. Whites, as much as any racial group in the USA, are under the microscope for any hint of racism, so when it rears it's ugly head, it looks like these drunk crackers. I'll bet that as sober individuals, they would not be so bold, even though they still harbor this ignorant hate. But I'll also wager that if you stuck a microphone in the midst of a similarly intoxicated group of black males, just before a major macho event such as the national championship, you could dredge up some racist remarks. And I'm a bit suspicious that the liberal spin would promote the double standard of the excuses of their poor economic situation, unequal education, and possibly even a repressed memory of a previous life as a slave, which we have to allow as an explaination and even excuse for their anger and frustration. It's ALL racism and the result of ignorance. The only thing that rivals that ignorance is anyone who claims to be surprised that it still exists or believes that it is practiced by only one race.
3:01, Please don't use the word cracker. I am a liberal weenie and it offends me.
3:19, please don't use the word liberal. I'm a cracker and it offends me, YOU WEENIE!
I love that. So few people know the truth about New Orleans in the aftermath and about the mayor of New Orleans. Everyone tried to blame it all on FEMA and the President, but most of them have no one to blame but themselves. I agree with 2:09 pm, the only thing wrong with that was using the N word in talking about it. The government projects are meant to be transitional housing. They are not meant to be occupied for generations as a little welfare subculture.
3:53, So true. Katrina was in a way a blessing in disguise. It exposed the welfare state that the liberal weenie mindset uses to keep the brother down while stroking their egos with the promise that big government entitlements will always be their mantra to keep them voting Democrat with blind loyalty while Conservatism promotes self worth and self independence. This was never more apparent when they re-elected school bus Nagin. Now is the perfect chance to rid NO from it's blight and corruption and what happens? They oppose it and want to go back to pre-Katrina days and want to sit on the couch and kick out illegitimate babies and wait for their monthly checks.
Personally, I am hispanic and have dealt with racism living in Wise County.. it's never truly gone and never will be. But the main talking drunk guy had some points! It is transitional housing.. you shouldn't have generation after generation living there. Some people just can't better themselves.. sadly like a lot of people here in Wise County!
4:11, Well said. The operative word is SOME people. This is where charities and churches step up to help the downtrodden. NOT THE GOVERNMENT.
Went to the ladys page that posted that and found this one. It's a little disturbing I might say.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMBWAXfGsc4
BG, I have a short attention span and after a min I went straight to the comments. Only to find comments just as long!!! Make me smile today, where are the funny post? Gimme Spears!!!
4:21, Thanks for the link to youtube. The lady at the end was classic. She don't trust the government but she sure likes those monthly checks and government housing.
right on man,right on give people a beer(or a cage)and the truth comes spewing out!!
3:45, Please don't call me a weenie just because I am a liberal weenie. If the moral authoratative Al Sharpton call whites crackers and there is no outcry from the liberal weenie press or The Reverend Jessie HighJackson can use the word hymie to describe Jews, then what the hell is wrong with a white person calling a spade a spade. Remember the other day when her Thighness Hitlary Clinton said that Oreobama had not done the spade work to be President and not one black Reverend spoke out about it? Get over the white guilt you have for this great countries problems and join the level headed thinking people and we can get rid of the stuck in the 50's attitude toward race relations. And that goes for the black folks too.
Cool Other than the "N" word they were right on.
Ok, that girl had to be a little scared with how hostile those drunk bigots were getting.However, there was one valid point in there about those places being "transitional housing" and that people shouldn't live in them for generations on top of generations. I have to agree, but also the system isn't really set up to help those people overcome that. It's set up to keep the people on the bottom on the bottom.
