I hadn't really planned to write one post about this hurricane, let alone two because honestly I don't really care that much. I know that's bad or whatever, but it's also true. But then the last couple of times I've turned on the TV, all I've seen is pictures of jigs running out of Wal-Mart toting cases of John Daniels.
First of all, I guess there's this thing where the media has been portraying black people as having "looted" merchandise while white people have merely been "finding" the same shit.
Which I can't say that I found all that surprising. While I was at The Station's job yesterday picking up a surf and turf burger, I noticed that all of the media's "black people looting" footage consisted of one short loop of jigs running out of a Wal-Mart with bottles of what looked like alcohol, not unlike their questionable footage of Palestinians dancing in the street after 9/11.
In fact, in all of the TV and Internets news coverage of this shit that I've seen so far, this looting business has only been portrayed as jigs trying to take advantage of the situation. Any coverage of the actual merchandise taken has mainly focused on alcohol, TVs and jewelry, not the things that might save people's lives like food and clothing.
The message here is clear:
A white man's property rights > A jig's life
