    "Begnaud reports that the backlog is just one of many issues on the island. While things have improved nearly a year after Maria hit, the problems in Puerto Rico are so systemic and have been around for so long that even improvements that are being made are only pecking away at the surface, he said."
    I would keep that last statement in mind.

    Though I don't think the president being racist or not has much to do with this.
    "The suspects are the mayor of the southwest town of Sabana Grande and the former directors of finance for the northern town of Toa Baja, which has struggled to pay its employees amid an 11-year recession."
    "The arrests come as Puerto Rico struggles to recuperate from Hurricane Maria and tries to restructure a portion of its $70 billion public debt load."

    The supplies didn't make it to the people, so it's their fault you're saying.

    Brilliant.

    Caribbean islanders by in large don't prioritize work. They are one of those cultures that want to work like a 30 hour work week.

    So this is hardly surprising.

    So you’re sayin.... that this is as fact and not a Stero-Type and you’re not labeling thousands of americans who’ve suffered 2 catagory 5 hurricanes as lazy right?

    If you work less then you should expect less benefits and less assistance.

    This isn't a racial/color thing either. Everyone wants it to be, but it isn't. If I were an average German worker I would have the same opinion about an average Irish worker.
