Five years later, a richer, whiter New Orleans - Salon.com

This is an article that I meant to post around the end of August, about the issue of gentrification in New Orleans post-8.29.  Some of the comments are angry-making, but probably indicative of how most Americans feel about poor, black people.  The thing is, all of the things that out-of-towners love about New Orleans, wouldn't exist without black folks, past, present, and future.
