race, class, fiction and hurricanes

ten observations:

1. the people suffering from hurrican katrina are mostly black and poor.

2. the government is impotent.

3. the variety of ways in which the government is impotent is a long list.

4. prioritizing rescue of higher class people over lower class people: impotent.

5. letting thousands upon thousands (or even one) people suffer in a sea of their own shit, piss, vomit, and toxic waste from the very "industries" which supposedly make up our "economy" = revolting.

6. revolt would be a decent option.

7. remember public enemy's FEAR OF A BLACK PLANET? can't help but think of that.

8. shame is a revolutionary sentiment.

9. but only if recognized and seized upon in a moment of danger.

10. writers should write.
