Katrina Turns 5: She's Growing up so Fast!

What a birthday party! Over the weekend Hurricane Katrina turned five-years-old; and to commemorate this milestone much ink and television coverage was devoted to doting over her in the required, obligatory terms.

The legacy of Katrina, said the President, must be "not one of neglect, but of action; not one of indifference, but of empathy; not of abandonment, but of a community working together to meet shared challenges." Political leaders and citizens alike should take those words to heart when times get tough and when issues threaten to divide us.
A much longer birthday party is planned for Hurricane Katrina as we will discuss the tantrum she tossed in New Orleans back in 2005 tonight and the legacy of her one shining moment, where we learned what would happen on a day without white people.

A few brave writers
have dared write about Katrina in a manner befitting her memory, but they failed to realize that at this party only one group of people are allowed to cry. Remember, it's always their party and they'll never stop crying.

That brief week at the end of August and into the early part of September 2005 in New Orleans showed to America what will happen when a natural disaster strikes and what a day without white people will bring. Recall the floods that ravaged the city of Nashville earlier this year and consider the lack of news that story provided.

The silence of the media was deafening, as Nashville residents dealt with the disaster without the media broadcasting sob stories to the world and with no reports of helicopters being shot at nor wide-scale looting by police officers.

Worse, New Orleans has elected a white mayor and is in danger of losing its historical population that the media showcased incessantly during those fabled days in late August/early September of 2005:

Before Katrina, New Orleans was more than two-thirds Blacks. A recent study by Brown University sociologist John Logan found that New Orleans is at risk of losing as much of 80 percent of its Black population. Some officials predict that the reconstructed New Orleans will be predominately White. The transitioning is already clear. After Katrina, the city’s Black population is down to approximately 20 percent, says Mr. Lee. Predominantly White areas are bouncing back first. The signs of recovery are everywhere in the French Quarter, which is more than 90 percent White.

There, café and restaurant owners have begun opening their doors, allowing the tantalizing smells of fresh beignets, chicory-flavored coffee and spicy jambalayas to permeate the air. Curio shops are already peddling Hurricane Katrina-inspired T-shirts along with feathery Mardi Gras masks, and Bourbon Street is rich again with the sounds and smells of human excess. Moreover, the faint sounds of a throbbing bass chord and the whine of a brass horn wafts along the night breeze.
Areas where white people returned to in Post-Katrina have recovered and experienced growth, renewal and prosperity. The city that most people evacuated in August of 2005 and left under the watchful eye of both nature and Black people has regained one notorious accolade: most dangerous city in America. Cities that welcomed residents of pre-Katrina New Orleans also welcomed a spike in crime.

The gangs of New Orleans have long been rightfully feared, though Saints games have a calming effect on the population:
Maybe you use bizarre trends, such as an NOPD cop telling me the 911 calls almost stop when the Saints play and there's been only one murder during a game this year.
So Happy Fifth Birthday Hurricane Katrina. We saw what happens when you remove white people from the equation of modern civilization, and the result is barbarism courtesy of a real-life scenario The Crazies could only call fiction.

We at SBPDL won't forget the real story that Hurricane Katrina provided and no, it is not the one that The Nation attempted to spin-off duplicitous intentions. The Black police officers looted stores - though, strangely, they left Shania Twain CDs alone - and abandoned their job of maintaining law and order.

In the absence of law and order, any semblance of justice must be swift and without remorse to dissuade those remaining from leaving the realm of saints to become sinners.

There is no denying what Hurricane Katrina showed to the world. Haiti has been showing it for years and South Africa has gradually started to hint at what is to come. Recent Section 8 riots in Atlanta only showed how quickly things can descend to what we saw in The Big Easy those five days in 2005.

A day without white people is a notion that should chill the Talented Tenth to the bone, for it is Hurricane Katrina that sits atop the list of Stuff Black People Don't Like without equal. President George W. Bush became the face of blame in the whole sordid affair, but to truly see who is at fault would require Disingenuous White Liberals to look into the mirror along with those that they continuously enable, Black people.

There are those who would forget Hurricane Katrina and consign the real lesson of that event to the deepest recesses of the internet, buried under an avalanche of useless stories of hope amid the rebuilding.

Oh, and one more thing: it has recently come out that police were told by superiors that they had the authority to shoot looters:

In the chaotic days after Hurricane Katrina, an order circulated among New Orleans police authorizing officers to shoot looters, according to present and former members of the New Orleans Police Department.

It's not clear how broadly the order was communicated. Some officers who heard it say they refused to carry it out. Others say they understood it as a fundamental change in the standards on deadly force, which allow police to fire only to protect themselves or others from what appears to be an imminent physical threat.

The accounts of orders to "shoot looters," "take back the city," or "do what you have to do" are fragmentary. It remains unclear who originated them or whether they were heard by any of the officers involved in shooting 11 civilians in the days after Katrina. Thus far, no officers implicated in shootings have used the order as an explanation for their actions. Only one of the people shot by police -- Henry Glover -- was allegedly stealing goods at the time he was shot.

Still, current and former officers said the police orders -- taken together with tough talk from top public officials broadcast over the airwaves -- contributed to an atmosphere of confusion about how much force could be used to combat looting.

In one instance captured on a grainy videotape shot by a member of the force, a police captain relayed the instructions at morning roll call to cops preparing for the day's patrols.

"We have authority by martial law to shoot looters," Captain James Scott told a few dozen officers in a portion of the tape viewed by reporters. Scott, then the commander of the 1st district, is now captain of the special operations division.

To those who suffered in Mississippi and other parts of Louisiana, we hope you have recovered. We now present for you a number of videos that commemorate Hurricane Katrina's fifth birthday. Like a parent who sees the early years of their child's life go by quickly, we at SBPDL can only marvel at how quickly the lessons of that event have been forgotten.

After all, it was documented so well. Just see below.

Black people are like little third-world infant children, incapable of taking care of themselves, waiting for whites to come rescue them.

Natural disasters usually bring out the best in people, who help neighbors and strangers alike. For blacks — at least the lower-class blacks of New Orleans — disaster was an excuse to loot, rob, rape and kill.

Our rulers and media executives will try to turn the story of Hurricane Katrina into yet another morality tale of downtrodden blacks and heartless whites, but pandering of this kind fools fewer and fewer people. Many whites will realize — some for the first time — that we have Africa in our midst, that utterly alien Africa of road-side corpses, cruelty, and anarchy that they thought could never wash up on these shores.

To be sure, the story of Hurricane Katrina does have a moral for anyone not deliberately blind. The races are different. Blacks and whites are different. When blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western Civilization — any kind of civilization — disappears. And in a crisis, it disappears overnight

I believe a lot of these displaced blacks went to Houston and other parts of Texas but their shock from Katrina did not enlighten them in any way. Sometimes when people experience true crisis they emerge a stronger person who sees the world differently. Not black people. They went to new environs and immediately started murdering and 'wilding out'. Katrina may be the best thing to ever happen to New Orleans if these demographic changes persist. Now we just need hurricanes to hit DC, Baltimore, New York, Philly, Boston, Miami, and Africa.

I am so glad to see gun toting whites putting blacks in their place.The law is so biased you might as well take matters into your own hands.Like Dexter or The Punisher.

No account of Hurricane Katrina from your POV is complete without a picture of Lootie. I demand you edit your post and insert one!

Ha! NO is at risk of losing most of its blacks in the same way I'm at risk of winning the lottery.

I'm imagining opening the front door to see Ed McMahon standing there, with balloons and the sweepstakes van in the background, grinning and holding a giant novelty check that says No More Blacks!

As far as Katrina goes, I don't have a great deal of sympathy for law enforcement, since most of them spent their energy confiscating firearms from Caucasians. We can take care of the black problem without resorting to a police state.

Steve said...

No article about Katrina should not have this excellent piece attached. Jared Taylor's Africa In Our Midst. A truly shocking piece about the barbarism and depravity of the blacks during the storm.

Consider the more recent disasters such as the ice storms a few years ago putting people without power for almost a month in freezing temps or the massive flooding in Tennessee which was estimated to be much worse than Katrina. No looting or violence during any of these events, no begging for handouts no living in FEMA shelters for years and demanding more and more. Of course its all (from a previous SBPDL) "...and then...and then"

To this day (please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong)...
Barack Hussein Obama has never even publicly mentioned the Tennessee floods, although he was pledging billions of US dollars to Haiti IMMEDIATELY after the quake (within 24 hours).

Of course, the flood victims were largely white, so he simply doesn't care.

The man is an incredibly racist piece of shit.

"Of course, the flood victims were largely white, so he simply doesn't care.

True, even though many blacks live in Nashville and were affected. The fact is, Nashville is a "hick town" and NO was a "Chocolate City", hence the crickets for the former and the alligator tears for the latter.

Percy Kittens said...

Don't forget Mayor Nagin's promise to certain that New Orleans remains a *CHOCOLATE CITY*: "We ask black people: it's time. It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild a New Orleans, the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans. And 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. You can't have New Orleans no other way; it wouldn't be New Orleans."

Dear SPBDL and friends. I live in Houston, and guess where a bunch of the New Orleans Nig Nog diaspora ended up? That's right in my city. Murder rates immediately shot up something like 30% in the subsequent months in the top line figures, and you might be shocked to hear that it was all in areas in which refugees were settled. My sister works in HR at a bank, and noted three problems with these people. First, they flaked out on job interviews. Second, would rarely show up with a car. Third, they would have absolutely atrocious credit ratings and in multiple cases outstanding arrest warrants that would preclude employment at a financial institution. Our paper has been running this pathetic storyline of the musical talent and cuisine that came with the refugees to try put some level of a positive spin, but quite honestly not even the egg head hippies are buying it. Why you may ask? Because they live in the edgy hip neighborhoods not far from the "whimsical" people of color and get their Ipods, with their Animal Collective album's, stolen out of their Prius', their beach cruiser bicycles stolen from their front yards, and their favorite sushi restaurants robbed by masked gunmen wearing baggy pants and oversized baseball caps with the shiny stickers left on the front bill.

Katrina Turns 5: She's Growing up so Fast!

That title is damned funny. This reminds me of the time a few years back, when, for some extra money, I took a part-time job working thirty hours a week in addition to my regular job. There were a lot of groids there, and I always remember this one little shuckin' and jivin' pissant who was so jealous of Katrina groids that he was constantly vying with them with his hurricane Wilma stories, for which he couldn't seem to get no respect! This is hardly surprising inasmuch as blacks are always trying to outvictim everyone else. Many shiftless blacks were bitterly jealous of the benefits that New Orleans blacks received for so long.

You know, SBPDL, you've coined an excellent slogan: "Katrina - A Day Without White People." The loony left Dallas Morning News on Sunday had a number of long articles on Katrinites here in DFW. One was about a woman who decided to stay - gave up being a lawyer and opened a dance studio for little brown and black girls (being a hard-hearted race realist, I wasn't touched). The other, an obese single mother who has been on "disability" for about 25 years, returned to her lower 9th ward home which was renovated with lots of white people's charity. I think that fabled attachment they all have for NO is merely an inability to survive outside their black ghetto, and the extreme discomfort they experience when they see others with more energy and intelligence. If they stay with their NO 'hood, they can tell themselves that no one is better than they are and everyone is poor because the man keeps them down.

I gave money for the Kentucky/Tennessee floods, and not a penny for Haiti or Pakistan. Just as I gave money to a little white girl who came to my door the other day (raising money via tennis tournament for kids' hospital) and I let whites go before me in the grocery store line and I let whites merge in front of me in traffic. I practice affirmative action for white people.

Porter said...

Anon 7:28: Exactly right.

Sheila, I was heartened to hear of your affirmative action for white people as I myself practice it assiduously and urge all others to do the same. As the brown/black shadow of Mordor falls over America and Europe we must all learn to close ranks and support our people as if they were extended family. Because in what is to come, they effectively will be.

This can be done in ways great and small. As with Sheila, I give not a penny to any entity which doesn't benefit whites. I don't patronize any retail outlet which markets to blacks. And I certainly don't pay to watch two troops of negroes in colorful tribal vestments skirmishing over a bouncing ball.

I also long for the opportunity to practice a little retributive jury nullification. Most people shun jury duty. I however hope to get the opportunity for a rare black plaintiff and white defendant--in which case I'll go ahead and let the cat out of the bag: my verdict is not-guilty.

Finally, there are the small interpersonal ways to think globally and act locally.

Elderly white man with heavy bags: "Hey there, you need some help?"

White woman reaching for a high shelf: "I'll get that for you."

Morbidly obese black female drops cell phone from bloated paw festooned with three-inch purple fingernails: Unmoving stony silence.

I also yield, hold doors and am generally the picture of the politeness for my people. For all others...they can wait, and, by the expression on my face, they know the reason.

@ Porter: "As the brown/black shadow of Mordor falls over America and Europe". Well said. Yes, close ranks we must. I have found myself trying to be much more neighborly with other whites and can only hope for the "ripple effect".

Most of the projects in Nashville are on high ground-like Rio de Janiero.

Janet Napolitano just came to town to check on flood recovery but I'm not sure what that has to do with Homeland Security.
