Poverty, Chaos, and Death
Newsweek has some photos of the suffering taking place in New Orleans, especially near the Superdome. [WARNING: Some of the photos are very graphic.] Looking at the photos of the people still stuck in the city and at the Superdome, I couldn't help but notice how......Black they were. Hardly a Caucasian in sight.
It's always the poorest and the disadvantaged who are most screwed by these things. Many lived closest to the most dangerous areas and lacked the resources to get out. And now, even in America, the effects of poverty are dramatically, violently spread out on the TV news for the world to see. A friend of mine is already referring to the looting and chaos as a "class riot."
