Moral Poverty in the wake of Katrina

A great article was recently forwarded to me from World Net Daily by the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. The Reverend Peters is exposing us to a commentary on how there was a large number of New Orleans residents that were waiting for the Government to come to thier aid, instead of taking care of themselves and thier families first. I find this quote most telling:

All Americans must tell blacks this truth. It was blacks' moral poverty – not their material poverty – that cost them dearly in New Orleans. Farrakhan, Jackson, and other race hustlers are to be repudiated – they will only perpetuate this problem by stirring up hatred and applauding moral corruption.

Please take a look at the article.

That's hard medicine, but it's the truth. The Katrina disaster exposed the true moral compass of New Orleans. As soon as the thin layer of law and order and civilization was removed the worse of humanity was exposed for all to see. Florida, Texas, and the Carolina's have all been hit by storms worse than Katrina. The local government and the local citizens have to take some responsibility for not being prepared.
