Of all the 100's of images I've seen about those who are still in the city, I haven't seen a picture of a white person/family, besides the doof who was celebrating after he though the storm had passed. Does anyone know offhand the breakdown of the city by race?

Don't think there were too many to begin with. Here in Michigan, white poeple live in the burbs while the black people live in Detroit.

How does that question qualify as racist? Because it involves the issue of race at all?
