National Geographic: It's Not Just Pictures

I read the NG article on NOLA, but I didn't look at the picture gallery. Thanks to Blake for pointing the latter out, because it led me to these quotes:

“Every time I think of leaving,” he says, “I bump into somebody I know.”
AND
“My pain has made me stronger.”

Clio,
There is always something odd to me when I see working class black New Orleanians struggling in their flooded out homes or to preserver their cultural legacy in contrast to white uptown New Orleanians at an "arts patron" gathering. No doubt that each of these has cultural significance, but I marvel at the contrast. I also know that Katrina was not racist. I find the perception interesting.
