At the very least, surely you can admit it's reasonable to believe it was grossly inadequate. And if that's the case, as it clearly is for the overwhelming majority of people, it's similarly understandable that the African American community (among many other communities) would widely believe it's because the people of inner city New Orleans didn't warrant a higher priority from the government.
You think it's the responsibility of the federal government to clean up storm debris?
I think the young people enjoy it when I "get down," verbally, don't you?
