Hurricane Katrina One of the Research Paper

Excerpt from Research Paper :

The research stated that

Because disasters tend to accelerate existing economic, social, and political trends, the large losses in housing, population, and employment after Katrina are likely to persist and, at best, only partly recover. However, the possibility of breaking free of this gloomy trajectory is feasible and has some historical precedent

Post-Katrina, there is much that can be done to help not only the city's renewal and revitalization from a physical and structure perspective, but there is also a lot that can be done to help alleviate the hurt and anger as a result of a very sluggish response to fellow Americans in the time of need. Politicians have stated that the government should not only help with support, but the government is obligated by statute to do so.

Historical authorities on the free market, Adam Smith and Alexander Hamilton, said that a nation's military defense and its infrastructure were the two major legitimate responsibilities of a government

Church organizations have been a great source of comfort for many Katrina victims post-disaster. Not only are the organizations a safe harbor for many, but the church groups are also proactive in New Orleans on dealing specifically with the race and class issue and trying to bridge the gap between races and classes.

Many residents of New Orleans and Katrina survivors are surprised by how the city has been able to recover as much as it has. Some residents, while still upset by the sparseness of people in certain neighborhoods, are hoping that state and local resources can help replenish areas, bringing vivacity back to the neighborhoods.

Hurricane Katrina, with all the devastation that it brought to the state and its local community, has had to endure not only catastrophe beyond compare, but the community has also had to face the ugly fact that race and class disparity and discrimination is still pervasive in America. Our government, our politicians and community leaders have a responsibility to eradicate racism by responding to each of its people's and community's needs in a fair and equitable manner.
