Another SJW type article. A lot of socioeconomic factors like education level, family structure,  are left out of the article.



http://money.cnn.com/2015/08/28/news/new-orleans-recovery-blacks/index.html?iid=hp-stack-dom



Katrina10.org, a web site created by the city of New Orleans to commemorate its revitalization 10 years after Hurricane Katrina, ticks off a number of successes: major rebuilding projects, criminal justice and education reforms and the rebirth of neighborhoods.



But for some black residents of New Orleans, the fruits of the recovery have been far more elusive.



"It's very easy to get caught up in the shiny new buildings, the renovated airport," said Erika McConduit-Diggs the president and chief executive of the Urban League of Greater New Orleans. "But when you really start peeling back the layers and digging deeper into who specifically has benefited from the recovery, you see a lot of inequities."



According to a report released this week by the Urban League, whites in New Orleans are benefiting the most from the economic recovery. Not only are they earning far more income, but they are also more likely to be employed and work in better paying jobs than black residents.

Availability of affordable housing is another big area for concern. After the storm, the city razed some of its largest public housing developments. It was a decision that was welcomed by some as an opportunity to dismantle the economic segregation that was created by clusters of low-income units. But it was hotly contested by others who feared a loss of affordable housing stock.



The city has since built new housing, but some of these newer developments have fewer units than the ones they were meant to replace.



"We haven't built back a one-to-one ratio of affordable housing units," said McConduit-Diggs. "That creates a significant challenge for people who want to return."



KatrinaTruth, a
web site created by a consortium of racial justice groups, reports that
there are now only some 2,000 public housing units available in the
city today compared with 12,270 before the storm. It also notes that 99%
of the 4,440 families that are on waiting lists for public housing are
African-American. ...

So things are pretty much like before Katrina.  Guess Uncle Sugar should have made things better for them.

It's past time for blacks to take responsibility for themselves and stop being little whiney, useless titty babies.

There is a reason no one likes you and it isn't because of racism.  It's because you fucking suck at life and make it the fault of everyone else.

I heard a statistic the other day about the percentage of African American males in Nola that don't currently have jobs since Katrina. They were saying the number was around 65% unemployment. They were saying what a travesty it was.



What they didn't say was what the unemployment rate was before Katrina. Hint....it was higher.




Selective truth is really a lie.

They don't care about rebuilding, until someone else is footing the bill. Or just kept as is for a reason to feel sorry for them and their blight. Poor us, feed us clothe us, give us a home...

But we are going to hate you, curse you, attack you, while you are helping us out, yet, again...

Lol.  Don't care.  We were fortunate and had very minor wind damage from Katrina.  In fact, we were both able to move to offices in Baton Rouge and enrolled our kids in school until we returned home a couple months later, when our offices and school here reopened.  We were lucky as my family is in Baton Rouge, so we had a place to stay.  It was depressing as hell to come back here on the weekends as my husband and kids were able to come home about a month before me, so I would go home on the weekends.  The destruction, stores open intermittently, people lined up for ice and MREs.  The losses.  Their was just an air of sadness.  Thankfully, my church had no damage and we who were able could worship together on Sundays.  

A chaplain I know who is a member of my church, but was a Chaplain at Charity Hospital was there at work when the waters started to rise.  He was there for several days with no power and flooded waters.  Charity no longer exists and many of them have lost their jobs and their work "family."

Others I know?  Not so lucky.  2 of my bosses lost their homes and their memories / photos.  Lost it all.  One in Lakeview and another in NO East.  Others had severe damage and had to use Road Home loans.   But these people have moved on.  Bought new homes, the others have repaired.

No sympathy for those who continue to sit and whine and wait for "free" stuff.  Don't want you back.

I don't blame those who stayed behind although it was embarrassing watching the Dome on TV.  Those that live on the Gulf Coast know that we usually evacuate and nothing happens.  So you stay home and hold down the fort.  Katrina didn't do this to NOLA.  The broken levies did it.  Tired of hearing about it.  Mississippi people got it bad.  They aren't whining and waiting.

I went to New Orleans for years and years shortly after Katrina hauling the household hazardous waste out after the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers collected it. Year to year there was almost imperceptible change and improvement and renovation. Years later people the still had blue tarps on their roofs and FEMA trailers in their yards.





My Katrina work started shortly after the hurricane and did not conclude for six or seven years. It seems I could almost count on one hand the times I saw someone lifting a finger to do anything to improve their situation in New Orleans.







Contrast this with Houston and Galveston after our hurricane. I lived just north of downtown at the time.  I rode out the hurricane on Heights Boulevard in my in my apartment.  While the eye of the hurricane was passing over I, along with most of the other people in my neighborhood, started cleaning up while there was some calm.







In the morning after the hurricane I cleaned up my property in the first few hours and I and my neighbors cleaned up our street that day. Citizens brought out chainsaws, shovels, brooms, etc. and the fallen trees were cut up and neatly stacked the debris was swept and piled and everything else that needed to be done that day was done.  Except for the power outages and the repairs that required professional help we took care of our own.







I was back at work the next day headed to Galveston to pick up a load of salvage drums with mercaptan from the local utility that had a spill. I could not spit out the window of my big truck while heading through Galveston without hitting someone with a broom, a shovel, a chainsaw, a wheelbarrow or something else to clean up with. The people of Houston and Galveston got off their asses and took care of their problems.







I was in New Orleans on a weekly basis for years and I cannot say that I saw anything of the sort going on there.
