And they are "two residents" while he is a "young man", which gives them a sense of doing something ok, while it displaces him and gives a subtle negative sense as if he isn't entitled to the same things.

I really hope people don't count yahoo as a good source for news. It's a fucking search engine. And their webmail sucks ass too.

I have no problem with 'looting/finding' food and essentials,

but stealing 10 paris of soaked designer jeans or a water logged television?

Yea, pretty much, and I highly doubt either article is going to have an impression on how anyone views a perticular race, so who cares?

saying they found it might mean they actually found it.. like.. you know, floating along.

 

and the black woman has 2 trash bags full of shit.

 

it also may have been written by 2 different people. im not in the mood to really check.

 

this isn't to say this might be racist, i'm just throwing another analysis out there. either way, i really dont care.

ok. i dont think racism doesnt exist. i was just adding another point of view so not everyone was in agreement here.

 

and finding bread floating down the street isnt the same as breaking into a building and taking shit.

 

 

i for one would loot the fuck out of that town. i bet there's acouple really nice several story buildings there.

 

 

*edit - i didnt even notice they had backpacks. which doesnt really say anything.. but yeah, i didnt notice. that is all.

in a situation like that, id loot the fuck out of everything. FUCK CAPITALISM. PEOPLE ARE DYING. Not like they can pay for it anyways. Altho getting greedy is sorta bad too, i think people should be allowed to take whatever the fuck they want. They prolly lost their house and everything. What the fuck else are they gonna eat? Gimme a break

it's called a 'threadjack'.... you should know this by now.

 

Think about it like this, all the food in a store is getting tossed out

durring the cleanup. Every food store is going to have to restock.

Same goes for booze. A soaked case of beer cant be sold after

things are back to normal, and the beer companies dont reuse it,

so if you DONT take it and drink it, it will be wasted.
