Episode Summary

Race, Class, and Katrina
This episode discusses how race and class affected the reaction by the US government to Hurricane Katrina, and how it shaped the opinions of views of others in the country. It describes how the poorer and predominantly African-American citizens of New Orleans might have played into the slow reaction time by FEMA and other emergency response services, and the poor treatment of the displaced people in the aftermath.moreless
