"Reports are “flooding” in of bumper-to-bumper traffic of people trying to
flee Hurricane Irma. But, as the Wall St. Journal reports, “Briana Beaty of
North Palm Beach won’t have to contend with highway congestion… A private
plane offered by a family friend will ferry her and her three daughters
ages 1, 3 and 6, along with their nanny and her mother-in-law, to a resort
in the north Georgia mountains where she said she booked the last three
rooms.”

"Just a few days earlier, Donald and Melanie Trump arrived in Texas for a
photo-op after Hurricane Harvey. Melania, never one to be caught up short,
had an aide carry two Louis Vuitton suitcases aboard Air Force One for the
day trip. She, after all, couldn’t be expected to carry the bags, not while
she was wearing her black, stiletto spiked heels!

Meanwhile, the capitalist media focuses on the massive flooding in Texas
caused by Harvey and what is coming from Irma, which is reported to be the
largest storm ever recorded in the Atlantic. Ever.

"And Haiti, where it’s reported that 500 people are known to have died and
400 others injured? And where the mayor of one city called Irma a “nuclear
hurricane”? That only merits a footnote. As does the devastation on
Barbuda, where 95% of the buildings are reported damaged. On St. Martin,
it’s reported that “it’s like someone with a lawn mower from the sky has
gone over the island.”

But who cares? These people aren’t Americans and most of them aren’t even
white."
