Day 607: “Moral Poverty” In Black New Orleanians

So, yeah, I should send this article to Athenae because it’s most popular in the Free Republic forums (and we all know about A’s obsession with the Freepi), but I’ll put it up here anyway.

Moral Poverty Cost Blacks In New Orleans (HT, Joel)

… When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed behind and waited for the government to bail them out. This, as we know, did not turn out good results.

Never mind that they didn’t have cars, or that the levees didn’t break until many hours after the storm had passed and the sun was out.  Here’s another one for the Katrina Hit New Orleans pigeonhole in the desk of Southern Louisiana Myths.

Back to the article.  Truth be told, the term Welfare Queen isn’t bandied in New Orleans for nothing.  However, this article, written by an African-American pastor, vilifies the poor, especially the black poor, on the government dole while not acknowledging that the other end of the economic spectrum – multinational corporations – rely on government bailouts and tax incentives for their existence, too.  Welcome to America, where welfare-pampering is the way and the middle class gets stuck with the bill.
