In Class - We will postpone our class discussion on race relations in the US to next week. We will start a documentary, "When the Levees Broke," concerning Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This documentary takes an interesting look at how the government (both state and federal) were slow to react to this natural disaster. There are some interesting racial overtones as well that will help us to further study the ideas of race relations in this country and their connection with the government.
Homework - Blog posting answering the question of the week by 11:59 tonight.
