Some thoughts on looting

First off, it's not a 'black' thing. It's a cultural thing. The lower socio-economic classes see wealth around them and conclude that it's unfair for this inequality to exist. A sizeable portion (not a majority, mind you) of poor, uneducated and largely hopeless people have always - and will always - seize ANY opportunity to help themselves to things which they see others with, but cannot themselves afford.

With that said, I believe that the 'black' community in this country feels this "inequality" and "unfairness" more acutely than does any other. Indeed, they have been indoctrinated to believe that they have no chance and cannot raise themselves up because of 'racism'. Thus it is not surprising that they make up arguably the largest percentage of that group which is now engaged in lawless behavior in New Orleans.
