your right to be offended

This is my comment on the Kanye West "B*** hates black people" quote. While I do find it quite ricockulous that the media is using the verbiage "find" rather that "loot" for white folks, honestly, I am more surprised at how much it takes to get the average person motivated to stand up and make their voice heard. A whole lot of people are talking this and that all of a sudden about racism (and to white people, racism is only a construct; can we really relate? that's my question to you) ... where were you before your superstar kanye said some shit? where's your outrage at racism when it's not placed directly in front of your nose by a hyped media darling? where's the outrage about the injustices being perpetrated by our current gov't?

** update **

someone pointed out that the instance of "looting" was used by the news agency AP while "finding" was used by a different news agency. The fact that they are two seperate news agencies could explain (if, for example AP is using "looting" to discribe acts perpetrated by all races and not using "finding" at all) the complaints away ... If it can be proved that one agency is using looting for blacks and finding for whites exclusively, then it could be deemed blatantly racist, but to call it racist based on the two images that have been circulating is stupid. It's a pretty touchy situtation, and to discribe taking "food" as looting at this point is ridiculous. But seriously, jerseys and jordans are probably not as effective in 3 feet of water as boots, wellie, wetsuits, galoshes, etc (why not "find" those)?

** update **

That's the problem with this administration. I think people are so frustrated that they've completely given up and are just blindly looking forward to "better" times instead of trying to do something proactive now. Someone said on another blog (sorry, don't remember) to be "proactive, not reactive" ... I think that's a great idea. Furthermore, something severely lacking in our culture (especially under the B*** Administration) is a certain level of compassion for human life, not just anglo-christian life. Honestly, as an atheist, I don't feel represented by these people at all.

on a side note ... David Banner is hilarious (LemRed link). also, I was browsing McSweeney's today and I found an open letter to Public Enemy from "The Power" by john moe ... The power suggests they should give up the struggle.

i think whats crazy is that we're all from the outside looking in. and these people totally just got fucked by mother nature and then they got fucked by a slow reacting government. bureaucracy is rearing its ugly head shit's just a mess. international news is taking shots at the bush administration for its snail's pace.
at least total anarchy has been reduced to utter chaos.
and david banner's a crazy dude.
