Ten years ago today, Hurricane Katrina eviscerated the Gulf Coast. The Army Corps of Engineers poorly constructed and poorly maintained the levees designed to protect New Orleans, Louisiana. The levees failed, resulting in thousands of deaths, billions in damages, and the displacement of a million US citizens. This event and its aftermath is one of the most staggering illustrations of Racism in history. A decade after the destruction, 100,000 black New Orleanians remain in exile and income disparity between Whites and blacks has skyrocketed. Former President George W. Bush and President Obama visited the Crescent City this week, to celebrate the recovery and resilience of a Whiter, richer town.
