Hold on. I did a little research here. Yahoo! doesn't write the captions. The pictures come with their own captions from the newswire services so this isn't what it seems. AFP called them "finders" and AP called them "looters". Two different news organizations with two different takes. Now if we find an AP photo with white people in it that calls them "finders" then we'd have blatant racism.

Racism is the least of these people's worries now. Food and water (ironic) is what they care about.

I'm guessing the difference between a looter and a "finder" is getting stuff for personal consumption? There is a lot of looting going on and it's pretty sick; while most people are suffering, others try to make a few extra bucks! Latest reports have gun shots fired at rescue helicopters, and that's putting back rescue efforts!

Sad innnit? After all the devastation and the destruction, people still have to do things like this, not that I mind if the person in question is rattled though :P
