The Legendary K.O. – George Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People

Back in 2005 Hurricane Katrina caused much damage along the Gulf coast, from central Florida to Texas. Many observers felt the President, George W. Bush, didn’t do enough. More than one million Americans were uprooted, there was a huge economic impact and much negative environmental consequences. And it seemed government disaster response was slow, especially in regards to the flooding of New Orleans. The President directed the department of Homeland Security to oversee assistance. They sort of delegated to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. But an apparent lack of planning and coordination led to resignations and replacements of key officials. It seemed unique (and disappointing) to many, that international relief organizations had to come into the world’s superpower of a country to assist.

Governments have disaster response plans. We never know how good they are until they must be implemented.
