Excuse me, I don't "loot." I have a college degree.

yahoo photo number one:

Two residents wade through chest-deep water after finding bread and soda from a local grocery store after Hurricane Katrina came through the area in New Orleans, Louisiana.

yahoo photo number two:

A young man walks through chest deep flood water after looting a grocery store in New Orleans on Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2005. Flood waters continue to rise in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina did extensive damage when it made landfall on Monday.

This one is too easy. I never knew "finding bread and soda from a local grocery store" could be made so innocuous or menacing based on the switching of one word and skin tone. For shame.

    perhaps those generous white individuals purchased their bread and soda from a reputable shop keeper.

    Yes, I believe I've seen those floating shop keepers. They kept their barges from Hurricane Ivan last year and decided to make some money in New Orleans. Now that's capitalism in action. I wonder if they have cheese fries and funnel cakes?
