New Orleans 10 Years Later

You might remember Ursa from her cat calls comic which made reddit waves. Now she’s back with a touching commentary on the devastation that Katrina wrought upon New Orleans and it’s lasting effects on the city. This comic sums up what we’ve been hearing from activist circles lately, that the only parts of the city that bounced back were the upper class mostly white neighborhoods. As we saw here in New York as well, when the storms come they hit the poor and minority groups the hardest and no one seems keen on making sure aid gets to where it’s really needed. From one broken city to another, condolences and hope that when the storms come again we handle them better.
