    According to Photo Captioners: White people "find," Black people "loot"

    This controversy has been bouncing around among bloggers today. It shows a comparison between two AP photo captions of hurricane victims in New Orleans who helped themselves to merchandise. (Presumably anyway, since no stores are open there.) In the two photos, the white people had "found" their items, while the black people "looted" theirs.

    Here are the two originals on Yahoo...

    Here's another white person "shopping" who's apparently not a "looter."

    CNN used the same photo that AP labeled as a black "looter," but said the young man was "dragging groceries."
