Ah, the life of politics:

Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) had a little time on her hands and decided more hurricanes should be named after African Americans, she sees the absense of African American names as racism.

APPARENTLY blacks don't name their children any of these names:

Alberto
Beryl
Chris
Debby
Ernesto
Florence
Gordon
Helene
Isaac
Joyce
Keith
Leslie
Michael
Nadine
Oscar
Patty
Rafael
Sandy
Tony
Valerie
William
etc, etc.

This is her logic for the reason more hurricanes need names like Jesse, Kobe, Louis and Tupac. Other names such as Al, Allen, John Lee, Notorious, Puffy and Ice-Cube

"We have seen this type of systemic racism before. Until last year, the FBI refused the black man his rightful spot in the serial murderer profile. That is racist and it is wrong! What is needed here is for the World Meteorological Organization to reach out to the African-American community and say, 'Yes! You too are as capable of destruction and death as the white man is.'"


We refused to cast a negative image on the black person due to statistics; I guess black people just haven't earned their right to be on the serial killer list, wouldn't that statement burn her up

I thought this was insane and I thought I would share it with you, what are your comments on it?
