The poor

Cherie Priest keeps looting in context and BoingBoing warns us to watch out for sly racism in the news (posing the rhetorical question Black people loot, white people find?). From Cherie's post:

People who don't have the funds to drive fifty miles inland almost certainly do not have the money to stock up for a week's worth of food, diapers, pet kibble, or bottled water. Come Tuesday morning, the kids were getting hungry. The toilets weren't flushing anymore. The power was gone, and it wouldn't be back for months, maybe.
