    I understand that it's best if he parts company with Yahoo News, but understand that all he's guilty of is being too indiscreet.

    Most of us were watching when they left all those people in New Orleans to die during Katrina.  OK, at the national level, it was probably more "they're poor people" than "they're black", and as other commenters have pointed out, plenty of poor whites were left to die as well elsewhere on the Gulf coast.  But there was a distinct stain of racism to the whole thing.

    The Republicans continue to spout their brand of social Darwinism, so frankly they own their debacle.

    I was so ashamed of my country after Katrina and I'm never going to forgive these fucks for that.
