The media coverage of the survivors of the flooding from Hurricane Katrina basically took a big fat dump on race relations here. That is FACT.
Anyone who has seen the coverage can tell. Anyone.
Notice that when they showed scenes of people looting it was all blacks? Even when they finally acknowledged that the COPS were participating in the looting also, what race are the cops they show stealing shit? Black. They talk about aid efforts being stalled out of fear, while showing on the screen nothing but blacks, as if suggesting that there was an association.
They've even taking to calling the survivors "refugees". These are goddamn citizens of the United States of America, and they're being portrayed like strangers in their own country.
Anyone out there on the fence about it, and/or thinking that blacks are being "paranoid", despite the extensive history, click here
. If you can look at that image and still think this is some kind of cheap shot, then you are blind.
