Sorry about the lack of posts, but between my Athletic Director job and Grad School....yikes.
I did have to post about how the response to Hurricane Katrina was "racially' handled.
We can all talk about how the response took awhile to get going and who is responsible, but when you start calling people racists because they didn't help fast enough youv've gone to far. Everywhere I go I see people, mostly white since Denver is almost opposite of New Orleans in the black/white make up in the city, who are donating clothes, medicine, food, money, everything. But because they didn't start fundraising fast enough, they can be considered racists.
When told of this predicament, most of the responses went like this.
"They think we're racist? But we've being working around the clock since the disaster started."
They then pondered, "Why are we helping if all we get for our trouble is being called a bigot?"
Fortunately those people didn't stop for long.
For all those people who say that the response was slow because of racism, ask yourselves one simple question....IF you can bear to give a straight answer....That question is....How bad would the disaster be if what you claim is actually true?
Save your racism claims for a time when it actually exists, for when you claim people are racist eventually you are proved right....and usually to your own detriment.
