From the Paper:

"One cannot complete an overview of the historic political racism events in American history without bringing this subject up to date- 2005, and the events during and following Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana and Mississippi. No need to reiterate the pictures most of the nation saw of desperate and stranded poor people, the vast majority black, who were either left behind or unable to flee the devastation and then had to wait an interminable amount of time before any sort of aid from the Federal and State governments were made available. The shouts and whispers of "Racism" were heard. There were people who blamed the government for being so slow to assist because those in need were mostly African-American."
