The famous jazz musician and film score composer breaks it down for you in just 2 minutes — what you should understand about the Bush administration post-Katrina in this vignette from Spike Lee’s excellent documentary. I think he speaks for a lot of African-Americans, which is probably why this is the only clip from the When the Levees Broke I can find so far on YouTube. If you find more, let me know.

The bottom line is that the GOP, in 5 days, managed to erode several years’ successful hard work in attempting to broaden their appeal to African-Americans. Trust will be hard to regain for anyone who watched the events unfold last year and sees the slow pace of recovery now.
