Good episode? Give it some love!
Gary Rivlin visitis The Context of White Supremacy. While reporting for the New York Times in 2005, Rivlin was assigned to cover the historic destruction of Hurricane Katrina and the levee failure in New Orleans, Louisiana. Rivlin looked forward to what would become of the eviscerated metropolis and dedicated years of time and energy to compiling the bestselling book, Katrina: After The Flood. Rvilin is White, but his book stresses that this storm was disproportionately catastrophic for black New Orleanians. We'll discuss why he began the book with the infamous Crescent City Bridge conflagration, and why Liberty Bank president Alden McDonald became a central figure for the book. We're anxious to hear his thoughts on former Mayor Ray Nagin, and if it's accurate and logical to identify Whites like Jimmy Reiss, Ashton Phelps, Boysie Bollinger, Ron Foreman and others being most to blame for anything that happened during Nagin's two terms in office. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE: 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p
