When The Levees Broke

As I’m in a hotel last night and today, I’ve been able to catch Spike Lee’s “When The Levees Broke” on HBO. Well still watching it right now. It has been pretty good so far.

Right after Hurricane Katrina, people kept talking about how this was going to wake up America and help people realize the racial and class inequities in this country. I’m not sure it has. I think it did, but now I feel like it’s kind of been forgotten. Especially if you don’t know anyone that was directly affected. Sad, very sad.
