I Just Can't. Not Yet.
I've been reading a lot of blogs lately; and I've been seeing and reading a lot of great material covering the absolute tragedy in the Gulf Coast. But I just can't write about it here yet. I am still too emotional, too angry, too..willing to scream, I guess. I never thought that the racial and class inequities in this country would reveal themselves so starkly, so horrifically. It has never been more apparent that -- all niceties aside -- if you're white, you're all right, if you're brown, you can stick around, but if you're black.. get back. And really, if you're white but poor...well, they ain't got much use for you, either.
