Katrina vs. California

29 Oct

So, I never really thought about comparing the goverment’s response to the major disasters of Hurricane Katrina and the California Wildfires. Luckily, Keith Boykin did it for me. He identifies the factors to consider when realizing that the response to these two situations were about as different as night and day; those factors being race, socio-economic status, and government preparedness. I mean massages and Starbucks coffee compared to no running water and electricity? Really? If I was a Hurricane Katrina victim that endured the hell of that was the Superdome, I’d be really pissed off right about now.

If you have the time, read the article and tell me what you think.
