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.
“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.
