White People "Find", Black People "Loot"

White people are presumed innocent, and black people are presumed guilty. In New Orleans white looters don't exist, even if they take items from empty stores and don't leave money behind. Associated Press editors are blatantly calling black looters looters and white looters lucky people who happen upon unattended items.

It shouldn't be surprising. This entire country was stolen, but we aren't supposed to say so. Read this piece in Salon.
