I think economics had more to do with it, as well, but race is certainly a reality of the economic situation. Bush doesn't give two sh*ts about poor
people in general, and in New Orleans most poor folks are black, so that's how race factors in. It's been a long time since we heard the words
"compassionate conservatism" from Bush---perhaps even he isn't shameless enough to actually claim that he cares about anyone at this point.
