I hope that this administration will review this report and do investigations.

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:

http://www.thenation.com/...  Katrina's Hidden Race War

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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
