It's Called Looting If You're Black

The Rap Up is strictly a Hip Hop blog. So, all things related to Hurricane Katrina belong on the
CBS website and the storm blogs...right? Wrong! Like Hashim wisely points out, it's easier for a Hip Hop fan to become engulfed with music news than pay attention to the all too redundant mainstream news coverage. There's a reason I find it necessary to blog about this hurricane.

Although I might not be physically distressed like the residents of New Orleans and Mississippi, I am much closer to the 20-something thousand victims that have now been relocated to our own Astro Dome here in H-Town. In fact, I had an interesting encounter with a N.O. couple at work today. Apparently, the couple ordered the wrong items and when my cashier noted the error, the old lady looked up with "grief" embedded on her face and declared:

"I'm sorry, our minds ain't together; we're from New Orleans"

While everyone's busy complaining about the sloppy relief efforts, Jesse Jackson conveniently blames the government's delay on race and class. Make sense, don't it?

Find out how you can assist the Katrina hurricane victims via The Red Cross.

Miles O'Brien has something interesting to say on his Hurricane blog.

What was dumbass Eric Benet thinking when he named his album Hurricane?
