Yahoo news has taken the photo down where “white people find food.”
They have left up the photo of the young black man who “loots.” I won’t link to it, b/c I’m sickened. Finally I heard Matt Lauer, FINALLY after how many days of coverage, ask Tim Russert about the fact that nearly all the people who are stranded and DYING in NO are black and poor. Tim’s response? “It’s sad.” (!!??)
I want to strangle someone. Harry Connick is down there (in Baton Rouge), talking about how he could load up with water, hop in his car RIGHT now and get to the convention center in an hour. But they won’t let him.
