“Feeling like Katrina with no FEMA / Like Martin with no Gina / Like a flight with no visa.” — Kanye West
Earlier this summer, Lamar White launched The Bayou Brief, a non-profit progressive web publication. For more than 11 years, White published CenLamar, one of Louisiana’s most acclaimed and well-known progressive blogs, which has received wide recognition from national and international news organizations.
As a law student, White broke stories that landed him in the national news. He was the writer who first revealed that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise had once attended a white supremacist conference. He was the last person with whom Andrew Breitbart had ever written online, less than an hour before the conservative firebrand’s tragic death.
