God extends divine middle finger to black people, again

Here's a cheerful headline: HURRICANE KATRINA SURVIVOR WINS $97m IN LOTTERY.

Except, of course, when you read the article, it turns out that the guy is a white Hurricane Katrina survivor. A rich white Hurricane Katrina survivor, who owns a construction company in the suburbs. And while he did lose his house to the storm -- in fact, he lost two houses to the storm -- it was not that big a deal, because he owned three houses. Oh, and also, this was the second time he'd won the lottery.

Reacting to the news, several thousand black people who became homeless after the disaster said, "Oh, fuckin' COME ON, already."
