its bullshit.... no way is the responce slow because of the black people... it was slow because They didnt delcare Martial law fast enough!!!
1. Temporary rule by military authorities, imposed on a civilian population especially in time of war or when civil authority has broken down.
2. The law imposed on an occupied territory by occupying military forces.
it means the state controls everything that goes on in the state untill they declare martial law... which means they ask the country for help. So in this case... when Louisiana got hit... they said.... we can handle it... dont worry.... they kept waiting... then realized... OMG look how big this is... we cant do it on our own... well declare martial law... which is when Bush steps in and helps Louisiana...
In this case its not bush's fault.... dont get me wrong i hate bush and i think his rescue is shit... but the fact it took so long is not his fault
The Years Have Been Short, But The Days Go Slowly By.
