Hurricane Katrina
I chose a BBC website about Hurricane Katrina. It is about New Orleans which two-thirds of its residents are black. Also more than a quarter live in poverty.
This place was 10 times to national murder rate and 21% of households has no access to a car. This article was posted just after the Hurricane Katrina attacked.

The anger of African-Americans who lives in New Orleans were that just this place was left behind when others escaping. Also, one says that 'television is creating a sympathetic image of white people fleeing, and black people caught up in a shoplifting orgy.'
