New Orleans web coverage: Looting or finding?

`Two separate pictures on Yahoo have two separate captions which pose a very striking question over the difference between “looting” and “finding”.

The pictures were taken after the hurricane which devastated three southern states earlier this week continued to afflict flooded New Orleans.

The first picture and caption, here shows a black resident wading through chest deep water “after looting” a grocery store.

But a second picture and caption shows two white residents again wading through chest deep water “after finding” bread and soda in a local grocery store.

What’s the difference? We guess all three people are desperate to drink and to eat.’
