Kamala Harris’ comments on Hurricane Ian split Twitter

Take from Twitter, Christina Pushaw pushed back on Kamala Harris’ statements about Hurricane Ian relief. “That’s wrong,” she blasted the vice president, adding that “his rhetoric is causing undue panic and needs to be clarified.” Pushaw went on to say that “FEMA’s individual assistance is already available to all Floridians affected by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background.”

Many other Twitter users expressed outrage at Harris’ comments, with one person calling for his resignation and to add“A hurricane knows no race.”

But other voices soon joined the conversation, along with someone else Tweeter“This country has failed [its] to promise. FAIRNESS always scares white people.” Someone else begged the leader to simply stop the policy in light of the number of people who are suffering.

Indeed, as of this writing, 46 people are confirmed dead in the Sunshine State, while hundreds of thousands of people in several states are still without power (via The weather channel).

But it is also important to point out that, according to the Shriver Center on Poverty Lawthe long-term effects of natural disasters weigh much more heavily on communities of color and low-income areas.
