There's a 20-point plan to destroy Black New Orleans?

Robert D. Bullard, the director of the Environmental Justice Resource Center at Clark Atlanta University, offers the plan that apparently president Bush has been following. While some of the points are interesting, the article is spoiled a bit with it's less-than-helpful viewpoint.
It's printed in the Pacific News Service, which has a habit of publishing racist articles.
Here's just one of the points of the plan:

First, there is nothing inherently inferior about an "all-Black" neighborhood - or an all-Black anything for that matter. Black New Orleanians who chose to live in neighborhoods that happened to be all-Black - whites have always had the right to move in or move out of these neighborhoods - should not be forced to have their neighborhoods rebuilt as "integrated" or "multicultural" neighborhoods.
