What the news does not show...

Thought I might inform the few friends I have on my recent traumatic
experience. I am going to tell it straight, blunt, raw, and I don't
give a
damn. Long read, I know but please do read!!!

I went to volunteer on Saturday at the George R. Brown convention for
two reasons.
A: I wanted to help people to get a warm fuzzy feeling.
B: Curiosity.
I've been watching the news lately and have seen scenes that have made
want to vomit. And no it wasn't dead bodies, the city under water, or
everywhere. It was PEOPLE'S BEHAVIOR. The people on T.V., (99%being(
were DEMANDING help. They were not asking nicely but demanding as if
owed these people something. Well, the honest truth is WE DON'T.
Help should be asked for in a kind manner and then appreciated. This is
what the
press (FOX in particular) was showing, what I was seeing was a group of
people who
are yelling, demanding, looting, killing, raping, and SHOOTING back at
demanded help!!!!!
So I'm thinking this can't possibly be true can it???? So I decide to
to the DEMAND for
help out of SHOCK. I couldn't believe this to be true of the majority
of the
people who are the
weakest of society. So I went to volunteer and help folks out and see
truth. So I will tell the
following story and you decide:

I arrived at the Astrodome only to find out that there were too many
volunteers and that volunteers
were needed at the George R. Brown Convention Center. As I was walking
up to
the Convention
Center I noticed a line of cars that wrapped around blocks filled with
donations. These were ordinary
Houstonians coming with truckloads and trunks full of water, diapers,
clothes, blankets, food, all types
of good stuff. And lots of it was NEW. I felt that warm fuzzy while
unload these vehicles
of these wonderful human beings. I then went inside the building and
approximately 100,000 sq. ft.
of clothes, shoes, jackets, toys and all types of goodies all organized
ready for the people in need. I
signed up, received a name badge and was on my merry way excited to be
I toured the place to get familiar with my surroundings; the entire
place is
probably around 2 million sq. ft.
I noticed rows as far as the eye can see of mattresses, not cots, BLOW
which had nice pillows and plenty of blankets. 2 to 3 bottles of water
on every bed. These full size to
queen size beds by the way were comfortable, I laid in one to see for
myself. I went to look at the medical
area. I couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing!!! A makeshift
created in 24 hours!!! It was
unbelievable, they even had a pharmacy. I also noticed that they
showers, which would also have
hot water. I wentupstairs to the third floor to find a HUGE cafeteria
created in under 24 hours! Rows
of tables, chairs and food everywhere - enough to feed an army! I'm not
talking about crap food either.
They had Jason's deli food, apples, oranges, coke, diet coke, lemonade,
orange juice, cookies, all types
of chips and sandwiches. All the beverages by the way were put on ice
chilled!!!! In a matter of about
24 hours or less an entire mini-city was erected by volunteers for the
evacuees. This was not your
rundown crap shelter, it was BUM HEAVEN.
So that was the layout: great food, comfy beds, clean showers, free
help, by the way there was a
library, and a theatre room that I forgot to mention. Great stuff

Well, here is what happened on my journey -

I started by handing out COLD water bottles to evacuees as they got off
bus. Many would take them
and only 20% or less said thank you. Lots of them would shake their
and ask for sodas! So this went
on for about 20-30 minutes until I was sick of being an unappreciated
servant. I figured certainly these folks
would appreciate some food!!! So I went upstairs to serve these beloved
evacuees some GOOD food that
I wish I could have at the moment!

***The following statements are graphic, truthful, and discuss

E­vacuees come slowly to receive this mountain of food that is worth
to a king! I tell them that we have
2 types of great deli sandwiches to choose from - ham and turkey. Many
at the food indisgust and DEMAND
burgers, pizza, and even McDonalds!!!! Jason's deli is better than
McDonalds!!!! Only 1 out of ten people who took something would say
you" the rest took items as if it was their God given right to be
without a shred of appreciation!!! They would ask for Beer and liquor.
complained that we didn't have good enough food.
They refused food and laughed at us. They treated us volunteers as if
where SLAVES. No not all of them of course,
but 70% did!!!!!! 20% were appreciative, 10% took the food without any
comment and the other 70% had some
disgusting comment to say. Some had the nerve to laugh at us. And when
snapped back at them for being mean,
hey would curse at me!!! Needless to say I was in utter shock. They
eat their food and leave their mess
on the table. Some would pick up their stuff, many would leave it for
volunteers to pick up.
I left there real quick to go down and help set up some more beds. I
many young ladies carrying mattresses
and I helped for a while. Then I realized something. There were
hundreds of
able bodied young men who could
help!! I asked a group of young evacuees in their teens and early
to help. I got cursed at for asking
them to help!!! One said "We just lost our fucking homes and you want
us to
work!!" The next said "Ya Cracker,
you got a home we don't" I looked at them in disbelief. Here are women
walking by carrying THEIR BEDS
and they can't lift a finger and help themselves!!
I waved them off and turned away and was laughed at and more "white boy
jokes" were made at me. I felt no
need to waste my breath on a bunch of pitiful losers. I went to a
restroom where I noticed a man
shaving. I used the restroom, washed my hands and saw this man throw
razor towards the trash can...he
missed. he walked out leaving his disgusting razor on the floor for
other "cracker" to pick up. Even the
little kids were demanding. I saw only ONE white family and only TWO
Hispanic families. The rest where blacks.
Sorry 20% to 30% decent blacks, and 70% LOSERS!!!!!
I would call them N*****S, but the actual definition of a n*****r is
one who
is ignorant, these people were not
ignorant..they were ARROGANT ASSHOLES. The majority of which are thugs
lifetime lazy ass welfare
recipients. We are inviting the lowest of the low to Houston. And like
idiots we are serving the people who will
soon steal our cars, rape, murder, and destroy our city while stealing
our pockets on a daily basis through
the welfare checks they take. We will fund our own destruction. By
"US" I
don't mean a specific race, I mean
the people who work hard, work smart, have values and morals. Only
who want to help themselves
should be helped, the others should be allowed to destroy themselves. I
not want to work hard, give the
government close to half the money I earn so they can in turn give it
to a
bunch of losers. I don't believe in
being poor for life. My family immigrated here, we came here poor, and
thank God, and due to HARD
WORK we are doing fine. If immigrants, who come here, don't know the
language can work and become
continue to reward
these losers then we will soon destroy our great country. I just
selfish, arrogant, unappreciative behavior
by the very people who need help the most. Now these same people who
me, refused my cities generosity,
who refuse to help themselves are DEMANDING handouts on their own
terms!!!!!!! They prance around as if
they are owed something, and when they do receive a handout, they say
not good enough! Well you know what......
these types of people can go to hell for all I care!

You just have to get your satisfaction from the few who did appreciate your help and forget the rest. The rest are just lost, we bribe them with food and shelter to keep another "rodneyking" incident from occuring.

You were helping the few fuck the rest.

The formatting of this post gives the impression that it was forwarded multiple times before you received it.

I'm always skeptical of these "first-hand" accounts.

Not that I think highly of the ninth ward inhabitees.

a copy and paste troll.

It's funny cause I knew a few who helped at the same place and gave different accounts.

Man, you guys are good (and fast). I recognized that as a cut/paste job right away but the guy being from TX threw me off a bit.

So I Volunteered

Yeah. Barbara ("must be a real treat in person") Mikkelson debunked the crap out of that one.

The "So I volunteered . . ." editorial was penned as a MySpace entry on 4 September 2005 by a blogger named Maher, who describes himself as a 24-year-old living in North Houston who immigrated to the U.S. from Syria when he was five. He insists he stands by his report.
