Lee was legitimately upset about what happened in New Orleans during Katrina and even toys with the idea that the U.S. government blew up the levees to rid New Orleans of poor blacks. Needless to say, Lee will not hesitate to tell anyone what he believes and is the center of many different controversies in Hollywood. His personality is best described as that of a ticking time bomb. His feelings for the people of the ninth ward coupled with his outspokenness on political affairs and race relations were the driving force behind When The Levees Broke. Lee’s intended audience is really anyone who takes the time to watch his work. He really wanted to get the story out to the public and that is exactly what he did, he let the world see exactly what was happening in New Orleans without any sugar coating. Lee does not hesitate to put a floating, swollen dead body on screen just to let the viewers know the grotesque reality of what happened.
Hurricane Katrina was one of the deadliest hurricanes ever to hit the United States.

The hurricane strengthened to a Category 5 hurricane over the warm Gulf water, but weakened before making its second landfall as a Category 3 hurricane on the morning of Monday, August 29 in southeast

For those who were safe, he wants to give a precise insight of what people living in New Orleans had to go through. He displays this issue with the underlying arranged racism that still exist in the United States relating to the government. For those who were effected, he doesn't want to bring back the negative memories and values but wants to get the message across; hurricane Katrina was way more serious than expected and should be remembered as one of Americas most painful and regretful
The Confederacy gained support after shots rang at Ft. Sumter on xxx 1861. Before that event, Arkansas preferred to remain neutral and hoped for a peaceful outcome to the divided country. President Lincoln’s decision to issue a call for troops signified an attempt to use violence to preserve the union, and triggered a vote that would change Arkansas forever. The elected leaders of Arkansas by a margin of 69 to 1 passed a disunion ordinance and chose to stand with the Confederate States to oppose Northern aggression, unfortunately there loyalty went underappreciated as Arkansas’ geographical and political significance went overlooked by confederate leaders and their war strategy. This strategic error resulted in limited government support
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast at daybreak, “pummeling a region that included the fabled city of New Orleans and heaping damage on neighboring Mississippi. In all, more than 1,700 people were killed and hundreds of thousands of others displaced.” (Laforet, New York Times)
The author relied heavily on Pathos in his article. He used pathos to set the tone for his agenda which is, to have the readers heed his warning about the possibility for an age of superstorms. The author new that he could play on his readers emotions of fear and awe towards hurricane Harvey witch would make them be more susceptible to his warning. The author describes several scenes to emotionally attach his readers, some scenes of the destruction of the storm and others of the heroism of the people effected by Harvey. He also uses logos which ends up in this article creating more pathos. For example he states that 30,000 people are living in shelters, witch states a fact and crates the emotion of sorrow for those people. He uses this pathos
In this paper I read the Essay that Abe Louise Young wrote about “The Voice of Katrina Part One”. In this Essay at its core is about Hurricane Katrina, which was a massive hurricane that hit in 2005. It caused massive damage and destruction along the Gulf coast from Florida to Texas. Hurricane Katrina will always be remembered for hitting New Orleans, Louisiana, when the levee system failed leaving 80% of the city flooded and destroyed.

I, Roger Smith, am bringing this petition to light to portray how America treats its minorities. The irony of how America is lauded to be this liberal and free country meanwhile they forced and dragged African Americans into a life of slavery and inhumane treatment. Husbands, wives, even children are being taken away from their families by force to obey white supremacy. This is the kind of power that creates this sort of hierarchy and damages the meaning of what a liberal tradition should resemble.
During NBC's celebrity telethon for Hurricane Katrina victims, rapper Kanye West went off script and declared that America is not helping the victims of the hurricane fast enough because of the fact that most of the victims are African American. He
Even though it is the responsibility of the federal and state governments to aid citizens during times of disaster, the people devastated by Hurricane Katrina were not effectively facilitated as according to their rights as citizens of the United States. The government’s failures to deliver assistance to citizens stem from inadequate protection systems in place before the storm even struck. The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security were the two largest incumbents in the wake of the storm. The failure of these agencies rests on the shoulders of those chosen to head the agency. These directors, appointed by then president George W. Bush, were not capable of leading large government agencies through a
