Also a british report, not reported on ANY mainstream news channels...if this were true, CNN, and a number of Liberal papers would be eating it up and calling it a bush policy.
I honestly don't believe the report. I could maybe see some back woods redneck down here possibly saying something like that, however not the police or guard. Not to mention, those that went in with boats to help are those that care about their fellow Louisianans and would not objectify them like this.
If this does end up being true, then I will stand corrected. However, I believe this is about as true as all the Racist claims relating to the storm. Just another way for the British media to blast the US...that is their favorite hobby.
EDIT: My racial comment was about how the response was racially driven, not the fact that whites in the dome and others were threatened. That point has been confirmed that many whites felt very threatened and had to huddle together to survive.
