United We Stand

It deeply saddens me the things people are saying on television. I was watching Oprah today, God bless her, and Lisa Ling made this comment in reference to Hurricane Katrina 'If this had happened in a more affluent white neighborhood would help have taken so long?' Or something very close to that.

Whoa! That just got me so angry. Why would someone use something as powerful as the Media at such a time as this to bring division to our country? Is there not enough racial tension? Right now we need to use our energy and resources to get help to the victims. Not promote division within a Country.

A house divided against itself quickly falls. Remember this Lisa Ling, Kanye West, Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, Matt Damon and all other imperfect anti American celebrities, "United we Stand, Divided we Fall"

Lets stand!

I agree with you that celebs ought not to bring race into this. But get a clue-- its not anti-american to hold our leaders accountable. What is clear though, is that the feds and other state/local leadership failed. This from an administration that said THEY would keep us secure.
