So----these lazy poor people who just willfully disregarded the warnings about the hurricane just should have walked out, huh? Look at the tiny number of victims under 50 and compare it with the number over 60.

wow thats so sad, particularly since there is so much underreporting

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

I find the statistics about the amount of blacks and whites really telling. All this talk about how the black people were just left there and calling it racism. More blacks did die, but not THAT many. Especially considering the hardest hit areas were prodominently black.
