substitute has summed up what I have been thinking about how to express for a couple days now. I will just quote him here:

"Watch out for hysterical urban legends, unconfirmed reports, and exaggerated nightmare scenarios about looting in New Orleans. There's looting and violence all right, and when all is told there are going to be some sad and frightening stories about it.

But who benefits from a lot of scare talk about masses of armed looters, snipers, and great crowds of the unwashed attacking rescue personnel? The people who want to blame the victims, that's who.

All those officials who failed us are going to talk long and loud about the breakdown in civil order and the need for zero tolerance and lots of soldiers with guns. Don't forget the real villains here: the people who didn't give the evacuation order in time, the local agencies that left people on their own without transportion to leave, the federal agencies that pulled the funding for the levees, the President who couldn't be bothered leaving his vacation until the corpses were floating already. They'd just love for you to concentrate on all those grimy underclass losers stealing beer and taking potshots at helicopters.

Keep your focus. The "grownups" in suits who were supposed to spend our tax money to save lives stood around while Americans died. If they try to look good later by shooting some pathetic losers for boosting a beer, it's doubling their own crime."
nola is full of dirty blacks that is why there is the loots for drugs and guns and fried chicken and white women

only a dumb butt like YOU would not recognise
i totally agree.

i am currently trying to obtain a video that was shown on MSNBC on Sat, and again on Sunday.

it was a reporter, a man, he was dark skinned but not black - he was at the convention center.. and he was saying that the reports of looting and violence were all WRONG.. he was saying how he's been at the convention center for days and people are orgnaized and really trying to be calm and collected in the face of chaos. he said how people are even sweeping up just to give officials the impression that it's safe to come in, that they are not savages..

he said that there was no violence, and he was upset at the reports of trying to make people look like they are just out of control.

i am going to repost this btw if you and your friend don't mind.
