The Two Americas

America has always been divided based upon racial lines.

Everything is affected by politics. This is why blacks overwhelmingly embraced the Democratic Party. Although we realize that America's politics is still black and white, in the absence of a viable third party, we simply decided to vote for the lesser of two evils. Those blacks that have embraced the Republican Party it was always understood by everyone that these people were trying to disassociate from the black community and identify with the larger community. In many cases, these people were stepping on other blacks to obtain their goal. If you talk to them or visit their sites, the hatred they feel towards other blacks will be apparent. Historically, they have always blamed the victims for their outcome instead of looking at the larger picture to determine what is driving the outcome. In light of this blatant disregard for black life, they still can't bring themselves to accept the truth and they are still blaming the victims for being victimized by this system. Katrina has shown the rest of the world what black people have known for centuries, "racism is alive and well in the U.S".

Recently, some of the black Republicans were talking about Castro and Valdez as if they are evil dictators. At least both of these leaders are trying to help their people, but the U.S. has a total disregard for millions of its citizens. .

In fact, last September, a Category 5 hurricane battered the small island of Cuba with 160-mile-per-hour winds. More than 1.5 million Cubans were evacuated to higher ground ahead of the storm. Although the hurricane destroyed 20,000 houses, no one died. America would do well to pay Cuban's President Fidel Castro to ascertain his secret. Full link..
