Be careful what you say -- it might bite you in the butt

Phibian sounds the death knell for the ridiculous rumor that, after a mere three days in the Convention Center, black people resorted to cannibalism:

As New Orleans slowly comes back to life, the retraction are starting to come from those that took every wild rumor and tried to make it into a political club to pound their pet issue. So far, my favorite (give him some credit for doing it at all) retraction is from professional race-baiter and Amerika-hater Randall Robinson.
RETRACTION: The claim in the first sentence in my post was incorrect. I had been told this was happening, but these claims have turned out to be unsubstantiated. I therefore retract them -- but stand behind everything else I wrote without reservation.
And what, you ask, did he need to retract? (always thinking the best of his countrymen)
It is reported that black hurricane victims in New Orleans have begun eating corpses to survive.
It's funny how the Left, in its blind fury against Bush, made some really regrettable statements, most since debunked: black people turning into cannibals (see above and see this), black people going on rape rampages, black people slitting each other's throats -- all because the simultaneously stupid and omnipotent George Bush didn't care. Imagine these same peoples' surprise when they suddenly realized that their ridiculous anti-Bush canards, rather than making Bush look bad, were playing into the worst kind of racism about ... black people. The people promulgating these horrific rumors hooked into precisely the same kind of stereotyping against African-Americans that would have set comfortably on the lips of the worst KKK-er. Aside from being both sad and amusing on its face, this is also, yet again, a stunning example of the Left's appalling racism. While the right recognizes African Americans as fellow human beings who come, like all others, in shades of pink and grey, the Left routinely views them as helpless, lawless, immoral people who can be saved only through the Left's heavy-handed government policies -- pretty much the same way the KKK viewed them, although the KKK had no interest in intervening with Government programs. (Thinking about it, had the KKK engaged in the last 30 years of Democratic-style race-based policies, it could have wreaked just as much damage to the Black community as it did with grotesque lynchings and cross-burnings.) I continue to shake my head in bewilderment at the African-American community's willingness to stay allied with a political party that thinks so little of it.
