#11. George W. Bush

Black people do not like George W. Bush. In reality, Black people do not like the Republican Party and have voted overwhelming for the Democratic Party for many years, but they especially do not like George W. Bush.

To Black people, the man who might be the last White president the United States will ever see, epitomizes racism, ethnocentrism and indeed bigotry - largely due to the perceived delayed reaction in helping their fellow Black people in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.

The city of New Orleans was 67 percent Black at that time - known as The Chocolate City - and was ravaged by that horrendous hurricane that displaced thousands of Black people to other cities throughout the country.

Hundreds of thousands of Black people stayed behind, ostensibly to guard the city from looters and muggers.

However, the entire nation was horrified at the images that unfolded from, in the words of Mayor Ray Nagin:

"I don't care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day...This city will be a majority African-American city. It's the way God wants it to be."
Black people do like God, and they were horrified at idea that White people were entertaining - that the Black people who failed to leave the city when a Category 5 hurricane was coming would resort to looting, pillaging, raping and killing in its aftermath. Black people don't do that you see, and if they do, it would all be the fault of one man. George W. Bush.

You see, Black people are law abiding citizens, and anything that runs contrary to this view is the fault of George W. Bush. The man who stole the 2000 election from Al Gore and disenfranchised Black voters in Florida was the main cause of all Black misery in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina.

A rap group, Legendary KO, came out with a song entitled "George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People," with the lyrics:

"George Bush ain't a gold digger, but he ain't messin with no broke niggas...come down, Bush, come on, come down"
Accepting the invitation, George. W. Bush, a person so universally despised by Black people that they voted nearly 95 - 99 percent in every state for the Democrat Barack Hussein Obama in the 2008 election, had this to say in New Orleans just three weeks after Katrina:

"The greatest hardship fell upon citizens already facing lives of struggle: the elderly, the vulnerable and the poor...And this poverty has roots in generations of segregation and discrimination that closed many doors of opportunity. As we clear away the debris of a hurricane, let us also clear away the legacy of inequality."
Stuff Black People Don't Like will always include George W. Bush, regardless of accepting Legendary KO's invitation to come to New Orleans, and promises of helping Black people rise from the waters left behind from Katrina and dry off.

It's true they don't like the Republican party. Ironically though Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican president. A fact that must be lost on them. Perhaps even more ironic is the fact the Jim Crow laws were created by the Democrats. I guess they don't like books much either. Democrats can buy their vote with food stamps now.

Truly a very scary thought.

Bush didn't make Katrina. Katrina was an act of God. When a disaster happens in Texas our local city, and then State helps us evacuate. FEMA also helps in the recovery but the local governments are responsible. The State of LA and the city of New Orleans did nothing but blame-shift so they wouldn't look as bad as they deserved to. One thing blacks DO like is blaming others for their own plight. Blacks are such suckers for this blame hyperbole, I guess it makes them feel better about themselves.

Bush should have helped them, because he was President at the time, and therefore he has to do something in order ot help his fellow Americans, when a disaster like this occur. He could at least spend more money on homeland and rebuilding the society instead of war, war, war!

Idiots, all black people do not think alike. Black people do read (this is to anonymous who stated he gues they don't read either). I wish I didn't read so I could not read some of these stupid ass commments.

I hated Bush as much as the next guy, but when I heard people blaming him for AN ACT OF NATURE it really pissed me off. C'mon, people, they told you that a category 5 hurricane was coming, and you were too damn lazy to move. Exactly how is that Bush's fault?

The insane reporting on the Katrina Superdome story misses the main point. After the hurricane the people in the Superdome could of simply have walked to working civilization less than twenty miles away. Instead of walking for a few hours they sat in squaller and screamed for someone to help them. I can understand the helplessness of the handicapped people but the able bodied should have had better sense.

Ok, I am biracial and I am a democrat. I do not hate Bush I don't know him. I voted for Obama but I do have some Rebublican friends. Katrina was very sad but not all black people hate Bush.
And even if you are black you should not be putting words into all black peoples mouths.

The exceptionally pitiful writing on this site speaks volumes about the intellectual mettle of the authors.

I love how all black people are put into a category and expected to think alike. Note the sarcasm. Does anyone have a blog titled: Stuff White People Don't Like? Perhaps I should make one.Black people are people and therefore have their own minds, and opinions. And I'd like to point out to the asshole suggesting black people don't or can't read. I am biracial, and read all of the time. I'm also incredibly intelligent, which is more than I can say for you.

Actually, someone has a blog titled Stuff White People Like.
