Trump’s poor Puerto Rico response perhaps tells us something

The question asked by your Sept. 27 editorial “Where is the urgency in Puerto Rico response?” had a chilling answer right on the same page: Renée Graham’s op-ed “Why aren’t we talking about racism?”

White nationalism drives the Trump administration. Puerto Ricans, US citizens all, are mostly people of color. Trump’s tardiness and equivocation in responding to the humanitarian crisis on the island is another message that white lives matter most.
