AMERICAN URBAN RADIO NETWORKS (AURN) White House correspondent APRIL RYAN interviewed PRESIDENT BUSH aboard AIR FORCE ONE while they were en route to the GULF region to commemorate the one-year anniversary of HURRICANE KATRINA.
Asked what he had learned in the past year about race and poverty following KATRINA, The PRESIDENT responded: “Well, one thing we've all learned is that the vision that DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING had for America has not yet been realized. In other words, the struggle for equality is an ongoing struggle. KATRINA was a terrible natural disaster, and as a result of that natural disaster, we saw that a group of people lived in abject poverty. And the fundamental question is, will we react in a way that addresses the core issues of poverty?”
