Superdome vs. Qualcomm

"Limbaugh has apparently been talking about this, and, predictably, Matt Drudge is wallowing in it, too: the comparison between the “savage” behavior that prevailed at the Superdome during Katrina and the “civilized” behavior that we’ve seen at Qualcomm here in San Diego during the fires.

First off, you don’t have to be very good at unraveling conservative code to see that the comparison they’re drawing is between black people, the primary affected population at the Superdome, and white people, the majority (though even this point is up for debate) at Qualcomm. The argument seems to be that white people are more civilized and handle emergencies better than blacks." more

This is a good post and being a local in the midst of this, I think he's right on.
