CNN from New Orleans

If you’re writing down stupid racist remarks in your commonplace book, CNN will provide much fodder today. As the post-Katrina Disneyfication of New Orleans continues you will find CNN interviewing such important cultural critics as the editor of Vogue who said “you can’t help but notice the absence of African Americans” and in the same breath describe the event as “a kindler, gentler Mardi Gras” Several of the reporters talk about the new “family friendly” atmosphere.

So far the most shocking thing I’ve seen has been the Zulu Crew float, full of white men in blackface, being described as a “really integrated crew.”
