Interesting question

How come when it's Whitey it's "found" groceries, while the darker toned are accused of "looting"??

Makes ya say "Hmmmmmm", doesn't it?

Snopes covers it here. Basically, the photographer that shot the "looters" witnessed them go into a store and come out with stuff. The white people (different photographer and different news agency) weren't witnessed doing anything.

Libel laws, ya know.

Fair enough.

Still, kinda unsettling.

Meanwhile, would it be impertinent of me to send the good people at Snopes, whose site I adore, a copy of Strunk & White?

I found this unsettling, too. I also found the explanation to be weak.
