    intersting blog about a volunteers experience


    http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...20050903210145


    SO I VOLUNTEERED..........
    Current mood: disappointed


    I thought I might inform the few friends I have on my recent traumatic 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 for two reasons.



    A: I wanted to help people to get a warm fuzzy.



    B: Curiosity.



    I’ve been watching the news lately and have seen scenes that have made me want to vomit. And no it wasn’t dead bodies, the city under water, or the sludge everywhere. It was PEOPLE?S BEHAVIOR. The people on T.V. (99% being Black) where 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 was a group of people who are yelling, demanding, looting, killing, raping, and SHOOTING back at the demanded help!!!!! So I’m thinking this can’t possibly be true can it???? So I decide to submit to the DEMAND for help out of SHOCK. I couldn’t believe this to be true of the majority of the people who are the weakest of society. So I went to volunteer and help folks out and see the truth. So I will tell the following story and you decide:



    I arrived at the astrodome only to find out that there are too many volunteers and that volunteers where needed at the George R. Brown Convention Center. As I was walking up to the Convention Center I noticed a line of cars that wrapped around blocks filled with donations. These where ordinary Houstonians coming with truckloads and trunks full of water, diapers, clothes, blankets, food, all types of good stuff. And lots of it was NEW. I felt that warm fuzzy while helping unload these vehicles of these wonderful human beings. I then went inside the building and noticed approximately 100,000 sq. ft. of clothes, shoes, jackets, toys and all types of goodies all organized and ready for the people in need. I signed up, received a name badge and was on my merry way excited to be useful.



    I toured the place to get familiar with my surrounding; the entire place is probably around 2 million sq. ft. I noticed rows as far as the eye can see of mattresses, not cots, BLOW UP MATTRESSES!!! All of which had nice pillows and plenty of blankets. 2 to 3 bottles of water lay on every bed. These full size to queen size beds by the way where comfortable, I laid in one to see for myself. I went to look at the medical area. I couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing!!! A makeshift hospital created in 24 hours!!! It was unbelievable, they even had a pharmacy. I also noticed that they created showers, which would also have hot water. I went upstairs to 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 not talking about crap food either. They had jason’s deli food, apples, oranges, coke, diet coke, lemonade, orange juice, cookies, all types of chips and sandwiches. All the beverages by the way was put on ice and chilled!!!! In a matter of about 24 hours or less an entire mini-city was erected by volunteers for the poor evacuees. This was not your rundown crap shelter, it was BUM HEAVEN.



    So that was the layout: great food, comfy beds, clean showers, free medical help, by the way there was a library, and a theatre room I forgot to 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 about 20-30 minutes until I was sick of being an unappreciated servant. I figured certainly these folks would appreciate some food!!! So I went upstairs to serve these beloved evacuees some GOOD food that I wish I could have at the moment!



    ***The following statements are graphic, truthful, and discuss UNRATIONAL behavior***



    Evacuees come slowly to receive this mountain of food that is worth serving to a king! I tell them that we have 2 types of great deli sandwiches to choose from – ham and turkey. Many look at the food in disgust and DEMAND burgers, pizza, and even McDonalds!!!! Jason’s deli is better than McDonalds!!!! Only 1 out of ten people who took something would say “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 liquor. They complained that we didn’t have good enough food. 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% where appreciative, 10% took the food without any comment and the other 70% had some disgusting comment to say. Some had the nerve to laugh at us. And when I snapped back at them 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 saw many young ladies carrying mattresses and I helped for a while. Then I realized something…their where hundreds of able bodied young men who could help!! 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 ****ing homes and you want us to work!!? The next said “Ya Cracker, you got a home we don’t? I looked at them in disbelief. Here are women walking by carrying THEIR ****ING BEDS and they can’t lift a finger and help themselves!!



    WHY THE **** SHOULD I HELP PEOPLE WHO DON’T WANT TO HELP THEMESELVES!!!!



    I waved them off and turned away and was laughed at and more “white boy jokes? where 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 shaving. I used the restroom, washed my hands and saw this man throw his razor towards the trash can...he missed… he walked out leaving his disgusting razor on the floor for some other “cracker? to pick up. Even the little kids where demanding. I saw only ONE white family and only TWO Hispanic families. The rest where blacks…sorry 20% to 30% decent blacks… and 70% LOSERS!!!!!



    I would call them NIGGERS, but the actual definition of a nigger is one who is ignorant, these people were not ignorant……they where ARROGANT *******S. The majority of which are thugs and lifetime lazy ass welfare recipients. We are inviting the lowest of the low to Houston. And like idiots we are serving the people who will soon steal our cars, rape, murder, and destroy our city while stealing from our pockets on a daily basis through the welfare checks they take. We will fund our own destruction.



    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 themselves 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 I earn 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, we came here poor, and now thank God, and due to HARD WORK we are doing fine. If immigrants, who come here, don’t know the language can work and become successful... WHY THE **** CAN’T THE MAJORITY OF THE HOMEGROWN DO IT!!! If we continue to reward these losers then we will soon destroy our great country. I just witnessed selfish, arrogant, unappreciative behavior by the very people who need help the most. Now these same people who cursed me, refused my cities generosity, who refuse to help themselves are DEMANDING handouts on their own terms!!!!!!! They prance around as if they are owed something, and when they do receive a handout, they say it’s not good enough! Well you know what……these types of people can go to hell for all I care!

    i can believe it, just from hearing the major of that crap hole you could tell people would be like this, and even the damn police are looting now.

    Damn, he just said what 99 percent of everyone else wanted to say. Where is this guy so I can shake his hand. Ungrateful ****ing *******s. I see where the scum of America has been living. Next thing you know these dicks will be blaming Hurricane Katrina on President Bush, if they haven't already. I don't know about everyone else, but this really pisses me off. Anyone hear about the helicopter that attempted to land and pick up some sick children, but some dumb ****s decided that they were more important and tried hijacking the Helo by shooting at it. You know, most of these morons wouldn't be in this position if they had just left before the hurricane hit like some of the other smarter people had done. Way to go, idiots.

    I really think they should just load everyone in several cargo planes give them a slap in the face and dump them out over the ocean (w/out a chute).
    So far i've read of mobs attacking military guards trying to streal their weapons, massive amounts of looters including police, numerous police have quit the police force because they are in disgust, snipers shooting at firefighters, attempts to highjack rescue choppers, numerous murders, rapes, and theft.
    it's soo f*cking annoying listen to these lazy bastards sit back and complain that relief was too slow and when is somebody going to come and help my sorry ass....seems like most of the people there are so used to being taken care of by the gov. that when they are given a week or so heads-up about this storm they sit back, don't prepare, and expect the world to wipe their asses. **** like this didn't happen during 9/11 nor the huge earthqaukes in china nor the tsunamis (sp) in asia last year. **** happens and mother nature always has a final say. So when things happen like this of course there are going to be people needing rescue and relief. But when the people attack the rescuers and start killing each other is just uterly upsetting.

    I had heard some bad things, but I thought it was the minority. I had no idea it was actually a lot more that were being *******s.

People with values respond to a disaster by fighting against it and doing whatever it takes to overcome the difficulties they face. They don't sit around and complain that the government hasn't taken care of them. And they don't use the chaos of a disaster as an opportunity to prey on their fellow men."

    Those who made jokes at you should die. Those who live however, im glad they have to return to a life of poverty, thats where they belong. God bless the 20% that are good folks. Just remember, you helped the 20%.

    That was over the top, my bad.



    What I meant was... no wonder these people are in poverty. Look at the outlook on life they have. They claim they have nothing, take OUR tax dollars in welfare, and are not happy with food and water after they loose there house.

    Should this actually surprise anyone? Its not like New Orleans was known for their nobility. Its not called the most corrupt city on Earth for laughs.
