Katrina Deaths Show No Racial/Economic Patterns

Cathy Young links to reports from Knight-Ridder news service which indicate no particular pattern of racial or class distinctions in deaths from Hurricane Katrina. Money graf from CY:
...we were told that those dead had been killed by racism and economic injustice, by societal and political indifference to the plight of black people and poor people. So the Knight Ridder investigation does, in fact, seem to knock down Katrina's central myth.
Indeed. That is what we were told, and it turns out to have been a crock. I'll look forward to the legions of class-warfare pundits retracting their earlier searing indictments of racist Amerikkka.
