White people find, black people loot

Here is a photo of "two residents [...] after finding bread and soda from a local grocery store".

Here is a photo of "a young man [...] after looting a grocery store in New Orleans".

The black man is carrying a loaf of bread, while the white woman seems to be holding two. OK, the black guy has a large black sack, but that may be unrelated. Does this look like someone's agenda? I suppose the photos are from different agencies, so possibly submitted by different people and it may not be a deliberate change of wording.

Actually, I'm considering whether she's white. I can't really tell - she looks a bit pale black or Hispanic perhaps. Do Hispanics count as white? Would they 'loot' or 'find'?
