New Orleans French Quarter "escaped looting and violence" after Hurricane Katrina
The Quarter largely escaped the looting and violence after the storm; nearly all of the antique shops and art galleries in the French Quarter, for example, were untouched.1
Note Wikipedia does not tells us why the French Quarter escaped looting and violence... The people in French Quarter protected their homes and property. Outnumber and unprotected by the state white people survived the post Hurricane Katrina black riots...
