The accusations of "Racism" in post-hurricane New Orleans seemed pathetic and counter-productive to me. I do not believe that America has large-scale systematic racism anymore of the likes of Jim Crow laws, whites only drinking fountains, lunch counters or bus seats. Today's racism, where it exists, is more insidious, at a personal level, when someone chooses not to hire or promote, rent an apartment, buy or sell a car, ticket arrest or jail, vote or not vote for based on race. These things are personal, and rarely institutional anymore.

But woe be to anyone poor in America, regardless of race!
