Kamala Harris criticized over statements that Hurricane Ian relief distribution will be based on race

Vice President Kamala Harris was criticized after claiming that Hurricane Ian relief should be based on race.

Harris shared the remarks on Friday at the Democratic National Committee's Women's Leadership Forum.

"It is our lowest income communities and our communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions and impacted by issues that are not of their own making," Harris said.

"And if we want people to be in an equal palace, sometimes we have to take into account those disparities and do that work," she added.

The words were blasted by many on social media, including in a post by Christian Pushaw, who works with Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The vice president's words may have played well to her Friday audience, but there are no plans to focus disaster relief based on any other factor than need.
