Some of you are familiar with my New Orleans posts which are more than just interesting pictures. Candy Minx also posted several about the aftermath of Katrina.
People are protesting living quarters being torn down for a more "homogeneous" neighborhood. We now have a diaspora of African Americans - will it become even greater in number? I think our future history books will look back on this whole situation with shame. Maybe further into the future, the outcome will be better for them, but I can't help but think of the "Trail of Tears." How can the outcome be better when the decision is not in your hands? Still, only time will tell.
Here is a link to demonstrations in New Orleans protesting the demolition and the police reactions.
