Quote
In August 2005, the American city of New Orleans was struck by the powerful Hurricane Katrina. Although the storm was damaging by itself, that was not the true disaster. That happened when the city's flooding safeguards like levees failed and put most of the city, which is largely below sea level, underwater. This film covers that disastrous series of events that devastated the city and its people. Furthermore, the gross incompetence of the various governments and the powerful from the local to the federal level is examined to show how the poor and underprivileged of New Orleans were mistreated in this grand calamity and still ignored today.

If you believed its the hurricane that caused the major disaster in New Orleans, you are misinformed. Watch this and you'll see. I really recommend that you watch it. Its very long though. more than 4 hours long.

If you're black your life ain't worth shit.

Big ups to Spike Lee for this one.
