THE FACE OF SHAME





Why is the face of shame in the US usually a black face? What happened to images of all of the poor and middle class white people who have been displaced by the hurricane and in its aftermath? Why are there so few images of them? What does this focus on the black body allow to go unremarked upon and unseen? We return to DuBois and "how does it feel to be a problem?"

Hello,
My name is Elizabeth Lee and I'm the co-founder of italknews.com, a citizen journalists' website. While searching online for discussions about language post-Katrina, i.e. "evacuee"
v. "refugee", I found your blog entry. I would love it if you would consider writing something for our website. Please contact me at liz@italknews.com
