The Washington Times reported that President Obama’s Department of Justice issued a 16-page guidance to Louisiana flood recipients, which in part said “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency)”.

This offended some people in Louisiana. The people there are working very hard to recover from the flood crisis. The Washington Times had a photo showing African-Americans being rescued by white rescuers.  Why does President Obama have to bring up race during a natural disaster? Rod Dreher of the American Conservative organization said, “Everywhere you look you can find black folks and white folks loving on each other, helping each other through the crisis.”

If President Obama was so concerned about the citizens of Louisiana helping each other, then he should have stopped playing golf and gone down there to supervise the so-called “discrimination” going on during emergency rescues from the aftermath of a flood. Don’t you think it is about time to stop playing the race card and instead play the unite card?
