The Context of White Supremacy hosts the sixth study session on Gary Rivlin’s Katrina: After The Flood. Mr. Rivlin is a White man; while working for the New York Times he covered the infamous engineering failure and negligence that demolished New Orleans in August of 2005. His 2015 bestseller inspects ten years of lopsided “recovery.” To be blunt, a decade of black New Orleanians being racially dislocated and purposely hampered from rebuilding their lives. Rivlin examines all areas of people activity: the institution of charter schools, the destruction of public housing, and outright looting of funds designated for flood victims. Last week’s installment described Alden McDonald’s and his wife’s, Rhesa, childhood and the evolution of their marriage. Rivlin describes the growth of Liberty Bank and daunting task facing the bank in the wake of Katrina. We also learned about Joseph Canizaro and other Whites who seemed eager to turn black neighborhoods into “green spaces.” We hope this text will offer a more complete understanding of Hurricane Katrina and it’s aftermath as a meticulously planned campaign of genocide against black New Orleanians.
