Not only does Biden not sound great here, but also called Cedric Richmond "boy," something the left would lose it if he were a Republican: "I'm here with — with my senior adviser and boy who knows Louisiana very, very well — man — and — and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond." pic.twitter.com/T11qNAGJhu

We thought that Ida was a dud.
It was a bad storm, but it ended and there was no serious flooding.
The flood walls that were built to protect these precious colored folks held.
The levees and floodwalls that protect New Orleans held up against Hurricane Ida's fury, officials say. It was the toughest test since the federal government spent billions to upgrade a system that catastrophically failed during Katrina 16 years ago. https://t.co/kqW9fF0bSv

I was really looking forward to seeing the blacks turn New Orleans into a full-on zoo.
Now NOLA is saying that their completely incompetent affirmative action teams won’t be able to get the power back on for a month.
"Conditions are still severe throughout the city of New Orleans," Mayor LaToya Cantrell said Monday after about a million customers were without power following Hurricane Ida. Follow for updates. https://t.co/JaCG6pGVE3 pic.twitter.com/KlFGxfOT7f

About a month to restore power, based off historical models, for the 10% in the direct path of #HurricaneIda in Louisiana. “Sooner” for the remaining 90%. Again, #NewOrleans had 8 transmission lines taken out. That is not a quick fix. #NOLA https://t.co/MXDWrCaCWP

Hurricane Ida knocked out all eight transmission lines that deliver power to New Orleans, leaving the entire city without electricity. Some of the hardest-hit areas won’t see power for weeks. https://t.co/705yoiWm8O

All of the power lines into the city are wrecked.
One of the reasons New Orleans is without power. This transmission line that runs across the Mississippi River from Avondale to Harahan had a collapsed tower. Lines are literally in the River. #hurricanida #lawx #neworleans pic.twitter.com/tYzjXkkaAl

Officials are telling people who evacuated (i.e., whites) to stay out of the city.
If you have evacuated out of #NOLA, we request that you DO NOT RETURN until further notice. There is widespread debris, power remains out, and emergency services are working to respond to those still in the city. We will let you know when it is safe to come home. #Ida pic.twitter.com/r6rSzGxLX0

They also say they’re deploying anti-loot forces.
A massive transmission tower collapsed into the Mississippi River during Hurricane Ida's impacts, knocking out power to all of New Orleans. A fix could take days or longer.
NOPD is deploying "anti-looting" officers due to the outage. Latest: https://t.co/XQcAkNofcp

Could be some serious fun on the way.
Blacks are angry that their homes are wrecked and whites aren’t helping them fast enough.
Update : I’m ok but my apartment isn’t ok 😭 girl . Cause where I’m supposed to stay at now ? No power for month who serving & if I did have some look at the condition it’s not suitable for someone to stay this is crazy . I was a Child in Katrina I feel this shit fuck you IDA pic.twitter.com/p88rlfcCO0

“Nigga, my is house do be cracked, them white not even helped!”
Sharing some pics of #Ida’s damage around town. This is an extremely hazardous situation and we encourage everyone to stay off the roads. 911 service remains out at this time. pic.twitter.com/6FNNhiXfBF

Thus far, there’s only one viral looting video – filmed by a drone.

The thing that I fear most of anything right now is that without power, the blacks won’t be able to charge their phones so they can film themselves looting.
The thought that these blacks would be looting the entire city, but not be able to film themselves doing it, just makes me sick.
I think we need to airdrop battery packs for these blacks to charge their phones.
There’s an Indian woman campaigning to stop the police that are trying to stop blacks from looting.
while new orleans police dispatched “anti-looting” officers in a city without power, mutual aid groups like @WaterWorksNOLA have been working to help provide housing, supplies, and information. learn more about their community and support them here https://t.co/prucQYUd5g

Not sure what dog India has in this fight, other than they want viral looting content, but I support her efforts.
Police should never be allowed to stop blacks from committing crimes – that is literally the definition of racism.
If whites didn’t want blacks to engage in industrial scale mass larceny every time there’s a natural disaster, they should have never done slavery.
