Is levee blast racially motivated?

The Obama administration ordered the Army Corp of Engineers to blow up a levee and flood 130,000 acres of prime farmland and over one hundred mostly white owned homes. Countless wildlife have been killed as well.

The levee was blown to prevent flooding in the half deserted black welfare town of Cairo, IL. Cairo has a long history of flooding.

In 1920, Cairo, IL was a mostly white town of 15,000. It was one of the most prosperous towns in Illinois.

However, blacks moved to Cairo in droves during the 40’s and 50’s. Then groups of black thugs launched one of the most violent race riots in US history in Cairo. They opened fire on police and random groups of white pedestrians. These murderous thugs ruined the town, as white people began moving out in droves.

In 2000, it was down to 3,632 people and two thirds were black. Today it is down to 2,831 people and is mostly black. The majority of the residents are on welfare.

So far 130,000 acres of the best farmland in the nation has been flooded. A hundred white owned homes are severely damaged or destroyed.

One must ask if race played a role in the decision to blow the levee. Given a choice between a run down black welfare town and pristine farmland, the Obama administration choose to sacrifice the farmland to prevent (not stop) flooding in Cairo.
