Response to Original message
14. beyond shameful
the racism in this country is breathtaking. My neighbor is a racist. It comes out when she drinks. I deplore it when she does it and I tell her so --- I have actually said "that's completely racists, what you just said" and she backpeddles yada yada, I'm not a racist.

This is the whole problem with this country. Michael Moore was right in Bowling for Columbine. This is a sick and twisted culture here.

eta: sorry, I thought you said DO read the rest of thread before posting here...........

It does appear more than a little biased doesn't it.

I am curious though as to who wrote the captions and what else they observed (assuming the caption writer was even there) prior to writing the captions that was not depicted in the photos. For example, the circumstances involved in the acquisition of the items in question.

You have to love the left. Major disaster, thousands dead, New Orleans in ruins, total societal breakdown, looting, killing, raping, disease - basically the worst parts of the Bible come to life, and these people are all offended at WORDS which might, possibly, if you look at them sideways, be construed as racism.

They don't even know what reality IS, much less where to find it.

One image and caption is from AFP/Getty Images. Chris Graythen apparently.

One image and caption is from Associated Press. Dave Martin apparently.

The two photographers (or the editors I guess) posted captions. One telling the truth (looting) the other glossing over the crime. There is no racism visible unless you're going looking for it.

The only point the DUh poster seems to be pointing out is that he/she lacks basic reading skills. ED- And after reading many of the responses I can't seem to find many DUmmys picking up on it either.
