Fewer Blacks in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina?

Folaranmi, blogger at EthnicLoft writes: "New Orleans, the home of the Mardi Gras parades, could undergo drastic demographic changes following the destruction unleashed by Hurricane Katrina last year.

“This city will be a majority African-American city; it’s the way God wants it to be”,was Mayor Ray Nagin’s response to the findings of a study that predicts that 80% of the black population in New Orleans will not return “if its most damaged neighborhoods are not rebuilt and if there is no significant government assistance to help poor people return...”Via EthnicLoft:
