My thoughts exactly, LiLi. I meant to ask the exact same thing, posted the exact same way, but I didn't have the time. To me, it's not at all surprising that a bunch of young white folks feel that way; especially after the media coverage and the government's response to Katrina. But as far as young black folks are concern, every young black person I ran into during the aftermath of Katrina was just as charitable and even more outraged than older black folks. The young people in my neighborhood did most of the leg work that was needed for a Katrina fund raiser. And, so far, they've been the ONLY ones I've heard raising hell about it -- wasn't it a young black man (Kenye West) who spoke out about Katrina in the first place ( yes, I'm big upping Kenye West, so what). But my point is that young BLACK folks care and they happen to be the ONLY ones who are speaking out about Katrina. So the question should be - Why the hell don't the thirty somethings and the elders care anymore?
THAT'S THE FUCKIN QUESTION.
