New race row rattles relief drive for hurricane victims

Bruce Gordon, president and chief executive of the
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People' (NAACP) meanwhile argued that some blacks risked being deprived their rights as American citizens.
Terming the poor, mainly black, people evacuated by air and bus from the terrible aftermath of Katrina as refugees "is insulting, it is racist, it does not describe American citizens," Jackson said.
"If you characterise them as refugees, it is someone other than citizens," he said. Aid agencies classify those who are forced to flee their homes but do not cross international borders as internally displaced people.

Lovely articles like this one.... Crack reporting I tell you, crack reporting.... What were the people in Florida called during all the hurricanes? In fact all hurricanes.... What are they called? yea, you got it refugee's.....

Methinks the real racists and race baiters are showing their "true colors"
