Response to Minority Report: Hurricane Katrina’s Aftermath
After reading the Green Family’s story (last week) and learning about what happened to the most vulnerable people living in that area, please respond with your thoughts and opinions about:
- What conditions do you think allowed for the devastation? How was it possible for so many people to be hurt in this way by a natural disaster everyone saw coming? (Think about how a disaster might affect the people in this community)
- Take at least three quotes from Jay-Z and Neyo’s song, “Minority Report” and a) explain what you think it means and b) why is this relevant (important) for reader’s to understand?
- Make a prediction. If we had a devastating earthquake here in the Bay Area, how do you think the people living in Walnut Creek would be affected? What about the people living in Alameda? What about the people living in East Oakland or South Hayward?
