The White Washing of New Orleans

like a miniature Israel bulldozing down
structurally sound housing of the poor
who made New Orleans New Orleans
rent up 70% since Katrina
Louisiana Senators, Reps and city mayor
(some oreo’s in every crowd)
turning their backs to the dirty math
that would destroy 4,534 housing units
and build fewer units with tax payers dollars
that were earmarked for Katrina victims
and the dirt goes on…
Bill Quigley, Attorney is threatened
disbarment if he doesn’t stop using
his freedom of speech re corruption
as he notes on Democracy Now this morning:
“Like a Reverse Robin Hood –
stealing from the poor and giving to the rich.”
