91. god help her... my favorite ridiculous comment about katrina was when
black people were finding whatever food they could in a flooded city, they were looters and thieves, but when white people did it, they were survivors.

Anyone who says racism no longer exists in force in America is floating through life with blinders on.

I'm sorry you had to go through that with your sister, though. That's very sad. My father is very much like that--though not about blacks. He has very strong prejudices against Arabs though. (I was dating an Egyptian man a few years ago, when 9/11 happened, and it was not pleasant dealing with my father. We are no longer on speaking terms however (me and my father, not me and my ex lol).)
