The Boondocks by Aaron McGruder for May 15, 2013
Tom: Huey, you've got to let go of these ridiculous conspiracy theories. I assure you there is no way in a million years anyone would ever deliberately flood the poor black parts of New Orleans... Huey: Except when they did it in 1927. Tom: Again, I'm sure it'll be a million years before they do that again.

In a rational world, instead of repeating the 1928 mistake of building in the flood plain, wouldn’t be smarter to rebuild the ghetto in a different area in Louisiana? Surely the whole state is not a flood plain. Turn the flooding ghetto into a park or wildlife refuge for alligators.

I’m pretty sure the flood plains were built upon by the poor because the land was so cheap there. And the rich lands didn’t flood because, well, it wasn’t in the flood plains! When you’re poor, you live where ever you can.
