racism makes me cry

"Blacks are Looters and Whites are Finders" - a series of screenshots at Dvorak's weblog.

How insensitive is this? Darker-skinned people are "looters" but those with lighter skin are "finders"!

(I realize these photos aren't all from the same news agency but I think their juxtaposition shows that race is still unfortunately a factor in how judgments are made when very little information is available about a person.)

Please, anyone reading this, donate to the relief organization of your choice.
