    I've noticed where I live, and other places, that among the great hearts and souls that have helped and donated to the relief efforts for the Hurrican Katrina victims, there are also several people who are mad that thses black people are being brought to their cities and given any help at all. My uncle was suspended from his job because he says some whites were saying things like, "We don't need them here. Why should they get all of this money? They didn't have sh#t before.", and he went off on them. This is in Topeka, Kansas. My mama lives in San Antonio, TX and she said she went off on a woman who stated, "Why do so many of them have to come here?" This woamn was hispanic. To say that about another human being who has been through a tragedy such as this is pure evil.

    Sistah sorry to hear about your uncle ! I hope he's able to find a job real soon. I've heard similar stories about the backlash from racist whites complaining about our people trying to find a food and shelter in other parts of the country :mad: .

    We've been spread out in over 40 states and most of them are maily white, so I expect this reaction. I hope families can draw strength from this and become closer and more resolved to keep things together.

    Peace

    You're mother should have asked the hispanic lady if she would be O.K. with it if they had come to Texas illegally?

    That would have been one of the greatest comebacks I've ever heard!
