Barras: "Race is often pimped like some cheap street whore."

Jonetta Rose Barras points to some of the abuse of the race card post-Katrina.

"An analysis of what went wrong in New Orleans is far more complicated than West, Jackson and others may want to admit. To blame race for every flaw, fault or spectacular example of government incompetence devaluates real discrimination. It also misdirects our attention from the greatest affliction in American society: class, or as some politely call it, economic discrimination." Washington Examiner: Columns
