On the Subject of Hurricanes - Racism In The Aftermath

Since my state (not my area) is in the line of mass hurricane destruction and Obama (already racially debated) has advised evacuation for the areas in the immediate flood zone, I went looking for information on Katrina. I found this link on The Society Pages that showed how the AP depicted white survivors as "finding" items while black survivors "looted" the items.
