American storm

Bishop, Ed
September 2005
St. Louis Journalism Review;Sep2005, Vol. 35 Issue 279, p3
The article is about the American society after Hurricane Katrina. Racism was obvious in the aftermath of hurricane. The lack of money for communal needs was obvious. The lack of moral character in political leaders, both Republican and Democrat, was obvious. That America was being humbled was obvious. The only heroes in the entire terrible tragedy were people who placed community over the individual. Television reporters wanted to talk about the looters and the violence, to blame the victims, that was their usual template.
