Natural Disasters And Race In America

A picture speaks a thousand words.
Two pictures speak thousands of words about the racism of the corporate media.

Insurgent,
Not to defend the media, but are we really sure there has been racist coverage of this catastrophe. It's not objective to find one article that calls a white woman a "food finder, and one black woman "a looter", and then put them together and say "AHAH! RACISM..." Many Americans won't believe that the media is racist from anecdotal evidence like this. (No one except liberals listen to Michael Moore for this reason. His commentaries is so subjective and biased by his political ideology, that no one who needs to hear him listens.)
An objective approach to this racist media issue would be to do a search of a jounalism database (Nexus-Lexus) and determine what proportion of white people are being described as looters and compare it to the proportion of blacks. I think this will be important to do as well as other objective analyis of the past 7 days events, because some people need irrefutable evidence to believe what you and I already know...America has not healed from the wounds of slavery even today. We are still a nation divided, partly by class, but also by good-old-fashioned complexion.
Of course, we can save this analysis regarding racism for another day. Right now our focus should obviously be on disaster relief...

Your brother in comforting the hurt,
chad

"We are still conditioning people in this country and, indeed, all over the globe to the myth of white superiority. We are constantly being told that we don't have racism in this country anymore, but most of the people who are saying that are white. White people think it isn't happening because it isn't happening to them."
~Jane Elliot

Chad,

I appreciate your comment. Today, I checked out worldnetdaily.com, a "conservative" news website and it had an article detailing AP's explanation for the discrepancies in the two pictures. I just went back to the site to find the link to the article and couldn't find it.

They swear that the photographers who took the photos saw the people loot and/or find and stick by the different descriptions. That said, I find it very hard to believe that a photojournalist with a probably expensive camera could follow random people around New Orleans when everyone is wading through chest-deep water. Doesn't seem plausible.

Of course this is not a scientific study of the media, but as a person who would like to be informed, it seems to me that there is a compelling bias just by reviewing the headlines posted online from Fox news and CNN. My take is that the “Compassionate Conservatives” are lacking the compassion.

Fox news headlines...

-“Katrina's Aftermath”
-“Residents fight looters”
-“Bush Back in Storm Region”
-“More troops for Katrina”
-“Victim's Poorer than average”

CNN headlines...

-“Pumps begin draining New Orleans”
-“Corpse recovery teams go house to house”
-“Where to get, give help”
-“Misery --but survival -- in Mississippi”
-“New Orleans paper rips federal response”

I have brown hair, and brown eyes. I am human. A gorilla has brown hair, and brown eyes. Therefore he is a human. Assholes who decide on the headlines are conservative. Therefore, all conservatives are lacking compassion in this matter.
