I hope that this administration will review this report and do investigations.
Update see link to youtube video report with interviews:
I came across this in the NATION mag and was blown away. White Vigilantes mowed down African-Americans as they tried to get to safty in the aftermath of Katrina.
The reporter has sites video taped evidence of whites in Algiers (white area that did not flood) talking about how they killed blacks to save their land.
There are hospital records as well and a doctor who treated injuries and dealt with the fatalities. Other bodies were left at the side of the road.
Numerous African-Americans have been sharing their stories but so far these stories have not reached the mainstream.
Please go to the story at this link and share with everyone you know to get this out:

This story is so horrendous and brutal that it is hard to come to terms with. How could this happen today?
Even the cops ignore the stories and have not investigated leaving the victims to deal with their scars and their wounds.
The white vigilantes in this story spoke in celebratory tones as they shared declaring that they were not racist in some cases only that they were classist. I guess that is supposed to help.
This is another part of Bush's legacy that has yet to unfold.
Very sad and very depressing story.
