I made this website public during the evening that Hurricane Katrina touched land in the Gulf Coast region. I literally sat at my computer in my parent’s basement and watched the newsfeeds from CNN to MSNBC that proclaimed the storm to be the worst in decades.
We all remember the fallout and wreckage from the days and months that would follow this disaster. For my generation, the high water mark in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans was a low point in American history. As we here at DP Dot Com celebrate the anniversary of this website we also want to remind our friends that just like the flood waters in Louisiana, the stakes are high.
Using an angry and pointed humor my buddy P-City created this video using a track from another former New Orleans native – Mystikal.
