Jonathon Haro 11/3/07 Jacobs Core 80A Assignment 3 Assignment 3 In late August during the year 2005 the sixth strongest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded in history formed and hit the southeaster part of the United states causing massive havoc to its residents who are primarily composed of people descending from Africa. In October of this year many wildfires spread across southern California including Malibu, devastating the landscape and destroying thousands of local homes most of which belong to predominantly white Americans. When we compare the demographics, federal aid provided, the amount of time it took to be provided, and the total number of lives lost in the two regions we can conclude that federal aid was not equally distributed during the Hurricane Katrina disaster as it was during this year’s southern California wildfires. According to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics this resulted in an unjust distribution of federal support. “If, then, the unjust is unequal, the just is equal, as all men suppose it to be, even apart from argument” (pg.441 ln12). In New Orleans, the city most affected by Hurricane Katrina, almost 3/4 of the population at the time of the hurricane falls into the category of African-American.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
