Thought I might inform the few friends I have on my
experience. I am going to tell it straight, blunt, raw, and I
don't give a
damn. Long read, I know, but please do read!!!
I went to volunteer on Saturday at the George R. Brown convention
A: I wanted to help people to get a warm fuzzy.
I've been watching the news lately and have seen scenes that have
want to vomit. And no it wasn't dead bodies, the city under water,
sludge everywhere. It was PEOPLE'S BEHAVIOR. The people on T.V.,
(99% being BLACK) were DEMANDING help.
They were not asking nicely but demanding as
if society owed these people something.
Well the honest truth is WE DON'T.
Help should be asked for in a kind manner and
then appreciated. This is not
what the press (FOX in particular) was showing, what I was seeing
group of people who are yelling, demanding, looting, killing,
SHOOTING back at the demanded help!!!!! So I'm thinking this can't
be true can it???? So I decide to submit to the DEMAND for help
SHOCK. I couldn't believe this to be true of the majority of the
are the weakest of society. So I went to volunteer and help folks
see the truth. So I will tell the following story and you decide:
I arrived at the astrodome only to find out that there were too
volunteers and that volunteers were needed at the George R. Brown
Convention Center. As I was walking up to the Convention Center I
a line of cars that wrapped around blocks filled with donations.
ordinary Houstonians coming with truckloads and trunks full of
diapers, clothes, blankets, food, all types of good stuff. And
lots of it
was NEW. I felt that warm fuzzy while helping unload these
these wonderful human beings. I then went inside the building and
approximately 100,000 sq. ft. of clothes, shoes, ja ckets, toys
types of goodies all organized and ready for the people in need. I
up, received a name badge and was on my merry way excited to be
I toured the place to get familiar with my surroundings; the
entire place is
probably around 2 million sq. ft. I noticed rows as far as the eye
of mattresses, not cots, BLOW UP MATTRESSES!!! All of which had
pillows and plenty of blankets. 2 to 3 bottles of water lay on
These full size to queen size beds by the way were comfortable, I
one to see for myself. I went to look at the medical area. I
believe what my eyes were seeing!!! A makeshift hospital created
hours!!! It was unbelievable, they even had a pharmacy. I also
they created showers, which would also have hot water. I went
the third floor to find a HUGE cafeteria created in under 24
hours! Rows of
tables, chairs and food everywhere - enough to feed an army! I'm
talking about crap food either. They had Jason's deli food,
oranges, coke, diet coke, lemonade, orange juice, cookies, all
chips and sandwiches. All the beverages by the way were put on ice
chilled!!!! In a matter of about 24 hours or less an entire
erected by volunteers for the poor evacuees. This was not your
crap shelter, it was BUM HEAVEN.
So that was the layout: great food, comfy beds, clean showers,
help, by the way there was a library, and a theatre room that I
mention. Great stuff right????
Well here is what happened on my journey -
I started by handing out COLD water bottles to evacuees as they
got off the
bus. Many would take them and only 20% or less said thank you.
Lots of them
would shake their heads and ask for sodas! So this went on for
minutes until I was sick of being an unappreciated servant. I
certainly these folks would appreciate some food!!! So I went
serve these beloved evacuees some GOOD food that I wish I could
***The following statements are graphic, truthful, and discuss
Evacuees come slowly to receive this mountain of food that is
to a king! I tell them that we have 2 types of great deli
choose from - ham and turkey. Many look at the food in disgust and
burgers, pizza, and even McDonalds!!!! Jason's deli is better than
McDonalds!!!! Only 1 out of ten people who took something would
"thank you" the rest took items as if it was their God
give right to be served
without a shred of appreciation!!! They would ask for Beer and
They complained that we didn't have good enough
They refused food and laughed at us.
They treated us volunteers as if we where SLAVES. No not all
of them of course, but 70% did!!!!!! 20% were appreciative, 10%
food without any comment and the other 70% had some disgusting
say. Some had the nerve to laugh at us. And when I snapped back at
for being mean, they would curse at me!!!
Needless to say I was in utter shock.
They would eat their food and leave their mess
on the table. Some would
pick up their stuff, many would leave it for the volunteers to
pick up. I
left that real quick to go down and help set up some more beds. I
young ladies carrying mattresses and I helped for a while. Then I
something. There were hundreds of able bodied young men who could
I asked a group of young evacuees in their teens
and early twenties to
help. I got cursed at for asking them to help!!! One said "We
just lost our
fucking homes and you want us to work!!" The next said "Ya
got a home we don't"
I looked at them in disbelief.
Here are women walking by
carrying THEIR BEDS and they can't lift a finger and help
WHY SHOULD I HELP PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO HELP THEMESELVES!!!!
I waved them off and turned away and was laughed at and more
jokes" were made at me. I felt no need to waste my breath on
a bunch of
pitiful losers. I went to a nearby restroom where I noticed a man
I used the restroom, washed my hands and saw this man throw his
towards the trash can...he missed. he walked out leaving his
razor on the floor for some other "cracker" to pick up.
Even the little
kids were demanding. I saw only ONE white family and only TWO
families. The rest where blacks. Sorry 20% to 30% decent blacks,
I would call them N*****S, but the actual definition of a n*****r
who is ignorant, these people were not ignorant..they were
ASSHOLES. The majority of which are thugs and lifetime lazy ass
reci pients. We are inviting the lowest of the low to Houston. And
idiots we are serving the people who will soon steal our cars,
murder, and destroy our city while stealing from our pockets on a
basis through the welfare checks they take. We will fund our own
By "US" I don't mean a specific race, I mean the people
who work hard, work
smart, have values and morals. Only people who want to help
should be helped, the others should be allowed to destroy
themselves. I do
not want to work hard, give the government close to half the money
so they can in turn give it to a bunch of losers.
I don't believe in being poor for life. My family immigrated here,
here poor, and now thank God, and due to HARD WORK we are doing
immigrants, who come here, don't know the language can work and
successful... WHY CAN'T THE MAJORITY OF THE HOMEGROWN DO IT!!! If
we continue to reward these losers then we will soon destroy our
country. I just witnessed selfish, arrogant, unappreciative
behavior by the
very people who need help the most. Now these same people who
refused my cities generosity, who refuse to help themselves are
handouts on their own terms!!!!!!! They prance around as if they
something, and when they do receive a handout, they say it's not
enough! Well you know what..these types of people can go to hell
