The Context of White Supremacy hosts the eighth study session on Gary Rivlin’s Katrina: After The Flood. Mr. Rivlin is a White man; while working for the New York Times he reported on the infamous engineering failure and negligence that destroyed New Orleans in August of 2005. His 2015 bestseller reviews a decade of asymmetrical “recovery.” To be frank, ten years of black New Orleanians being racially dislocated and purposely impeded from rebuilding their lives. Rivlin examines all areas of people activity: the institution of charter schools, the destruction of public housing, and the looting of funds designated for flood victims. Last week’s session described the pitiful condition of the city 8 months after the storm. Most of the black residential areas remained uninhabited, without electricity, water or even traffic lights. Hoards of Whites hoped to take advantage of the exiled blacks by thwarting Ray Nagin’s bid for re-election. Ron Foreman, Jimmy Reiss, Boyse Bollinger, Ashton Phelps and other Whites who bankrolled Nagin’s path to city hall, now looked to kick him out with Katrina’s debris. 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.
