Afghan Man Killed by Taliban for Teaching Girls
I hope this is not like the bombing of the New Orleans levees story. Though I like a good lie that tells the truth, some lies are too big. The truth behind the bombing lie is that this can be a harsh place for black folks. What’s not true is that some They intentionally flooded a part of the city to save another, a part of the city the conspiracy theorists forget to mention actually flooded (Lakeview, St. Bernard Parish and Chalmette). Yes, the 9th Ward floods. There have been street flooding problems there for as long as I can remember. My great-grandmother said it was swamp land. And it was cheaper to live there because of the risks, because it was low-lying land in a city below sea level. And economics made it majority black. Sad, unfair, despicable but true.
