We left body bags behind.

WWLTV.com | News for New Orleans, Louisiana | Local News:
"Black survivors of Hurricane Katrina said Tuesday that racism contributed to the slow disaster response, at times likening themselves in emotional congressional testimony to victims of genocide and the Holocaust.

The comparison is inappropriate, according to Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla.

'Not a single person was marched into a gas chamber and killed,' Miller told the survivors.

'They died from abject neglect,' retorted community activist Leah Hodges. 'We left body bags behind.'"

Whew! Don't cross Lea Hodges. She'll damn well TELL you what she thinks.
