White Like Me – Discussion questions • Why were the majority of people left in New Orleans after the storm black? • What racial stereotypes of blacks (re)emerged after the storm? • What role did the media play in promoting these stereotypes? • Why did black property sustain more damage during the storm? • What does the author mean on page 227 when he says "So, to call for a vanilla majority is to call for the perpetuation of obstacles to persons of color, while to call for a chocolate majority in a place such as New Orleans is to call merely for the continuation of access and the opportunity for black folks to live there."? Do you agree? Does this comment give blacks a "pass" when it comes to racism?
