How Racism Manifests Itself in American Life

One of the difficult issues to come to the surface in the wake of Hurricane Katrina is race. It's a touchy subject and this may explain the lack of attention from the mainstream media.

In surfing the blogosphere I came across this post that provides food for thought. This article reminded me of my early days in Louisiana in the 1960s. I unconsciously embraced many attitudes that were clearly racist.

Nobody likes to admit to racism. It's more acceptable to say the Administration response to Hurricane Katrina was incompetent rather than racist.
