BATON ROUGE, La. - Racism is partly to blame for the deadly aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said, calling President Bush's response to the disaster "incompetent."

"Today, as the President comes to Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi for his ceremonial trip to look at the victims of the devastation, he would do well to have a plan more significant than a ceremonial tour," Jackson said Friday.

"His whole response is unacceptable."

Bush has acknowledged that the federal response has not been acceptable, but promised that the government would get supplies to survivors and crack down on violence in New Orleans.

Jackson questioned why Bush has not named blacks to top positions in the federal response to the disaster, particularly when the majority of victims remaining stranded in New Orleans are black: "How can blacks be locked out of the leadership, and trapped in the suffering?"

"It is that lack of sensitivity and compassion that represents a kind of incompetence."

U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Russell Honore, head of the military task force overseeing operations in the three states, is black. His task force is providing search and rescue, medical help and sending supplies to the three states in support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Jackson was in Baton Rouge to take part in a local project using a caravan of buses to pick up people stranded in New Orleans and transport them out. He spoke at a news conference at the state emergency center.

The civil rights leader said the flooding that caused thousands to be trapped inside the city was caused by a lack of federal funding for its levee system and hurricane planning. The resulting tragedy, he said, has largely hit New Orleans' black residents, because they were too poor to evacuate before the storm hit.

"There's a historical indifference to the pain of poor people and black people" in this country, he said.

Jackson also said the news media has "criminalized the people of New Orleans" by focusing on violence in the city.

People at some point are going to grow tired of Jesse, Al, the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus. It's pretty obvious to anyone with a brain whats going on in NO and it aint racism. Something tells me that the point has arrived.

Bush is racist for not appointing black people. In other words, only blacks can help other blacks.

Wow, and that isn't a racist comment?

Anything about people taking responsibility for their own survival? There are a lot of people who need help in places besides NOLA.

Has it occurred to Jesse that maybe black people weren't put in charge because either a) the people qualified to do those jobs happened to NOT be black or b) the people who already had those jobs WEREN'T black.

Oh my holy fucking shit! Non-black people being put in positions of authority and/or responsibility? Racism! Racism!

I've been waiting for Jesse Jackson to forget to look both ways before stepping out in front of a cement truck for years. Why is it that the dumbfucks and assholes of the world live for all of eternity to torment us with their stupidity/attitude and everyone else dies or fades into obscurity?

If Jesse Jackson & the NAACP are successful in wiping out any inference of racism, then what would thier purpose be?

They are the racist, and they perpetuate thier own self importance. IMHO

Time to look left, right, and then into the mirror Jesse. There you will find the people who are to blame for generations of people who have had ALL drive to better their lives and take responsibility for themselves REMOVED. They are all around YOU and you are smack dab in the f&^%$#@* middle of the pack.

I can't believe this BS.

Jessie Jackson is a racist. Plain and simple, if a white man said that about whites, then he would be jailed.

hey jesse you stupid race baiting racist
maybe if the blacks I see on tv would take time out during their busy day of raping, murdering, looting, commiting arson, and shooting at rescuers, to help move the sick and elderly to designated shelter areas or help clear streets to trucks can move in there wouldn't be so many dead

Ummm, because project living welfare raised blacks decided not to evacuate and were therefore the hardest hit because of their insistance upon staying. That answers the "trapped" part. As for the "locked out of leadership" part, since when are welfare recipients running for political office?

Jesse, the best advise I can give you right now is........stop talking into that microhone thingy.

Isn't the mayor of NO a black man? Wasn't he in charge of the whole shootin match before the storm hit? Didn't he beat feet for safety well before the storm hit? Isn't he responsible for the safety/well being of NO residents?

Maybe Bush should put him in charge of relief efforts. Oh wait, he has already shown he's a fucktard...

Nothing new. In 1994 he came here(Albany, GA) after the city was flooded, and attempted to lead a march protesting the "unfair treatment of black people" during the flood.

Seems that after waiting as long as possible, the flood gates of our dam were opened, causing the river to rise unchecked, and allowing black neighborhoods to flood. Evidently he didn't realize that white neighborhoods and black neighborhoods were equally flooded, as was everything else in the city.

He quietly left town when noone showed up for his march.
