Interesting observation on terminology used in media releases

Writing about web page http://www.boingboing.net/2005/08/30/black_people_loot_wh.html

Boing Boing carry an interesting post on an observation about the terminology used to describe people in the aftermath of Katrina – black looters, white finders.

To be taken with the usual internet pinch of salt I guess, but would I find this surprising? Not really.
