With torrential rains and fatal flooding battering parts of the southern US, the Obama administration has urged affected states to abstain from discrimination and provide emergency aid, regardless of race, color and origin.“Discrimination has no place in the disaster response and recovery process,” Director Willisa Donald of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said. A 16-page “guidance” memo released Tuesday recalled cases of African-Americans being discriminated against while looking for help in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. “In the days after Hurricane Katrina made landfall, numerous media reports showed images of African Americans stranded on roofs in New Orleans. These images exposed significant inequalities in access to emergency response and recovery efforts,”said the guidelines issued jointly by the Departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Homeland Security and Transportation. As America’s south relives another devastating weather disaster 11 years later, the Obama administration seeks to “ensure” that people of every race, color or nation “do not face unlawful discrimination” again. Yet, officials noted, disasters that have hit the US in recent years revealed problems of how communities of color and other populations are denied vital services and programs during recovery efforts, beyond just hurricanes. Even in a horrible natural disaster the Obama team makes it all about race. I'm sure people in the Baton Rouge area have put aside their differences in order to save their common man from the flood waters. By turning a natural disaster into a race baiting issue, it just goes to show you how horrible American leadership has been during the Obama administration. Those African Americans who were stranded on their roofs in New Orleans were eventually saved by people of all walks of life. To turn a natural disaster into a race baiting issue, just shows America how quick President Obama is ready to divide our nation by race.
