Exclusive Video: In heated ’07 speech, Obama lavishes praise on Wright, says Feds ‘don’t care’ about New Orleans

In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.

“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”

of course this will probably be discussed in the debates.

will the need for a federal program (which is bankrupt) be discussed? no.

He's right, but for the WRONG reason

The Feds truly didn't seem to give a rat's ass about Katrina victims.

This is from Wiki:

However, many police, fire and EMS organizations from outside the affected areas were reportedly hindered or otherwise slowed in their efforts to send help and assistance to the area. FEMA sent hundreds of firefighters who had volunteered to help rescue victims to Atlanta for 2 days of training classes on topics including sexual harassment and the history of FEMA

Unbelievable. The history of Fema, talk about arrogant.
