How Did He Get the Job?

This is a question that I have been asking myself since 'last year'.

How did the mayor of New Orleans get voted in as the mayor?

Mayor Nagin made some rude, crude, and outlandish statements yesterday. If anyone else had said those same exact words, the entire country would be bashing the speaker and planning a political lynching to boot.

It is really hard to find an article posted anywhere with the negative comments that he made in relation to *color*.

How does the man get away with it?

Nagin basically told his audience that 'white' wasn't welcome in New Orleans, among other things, during his speech on a day that was to honor Dr. Martin Luther King.

"I don't care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day," Mr Nagin said.

"This city will be a majority African-American city. It's the way God wants it to be."

And while today there is a public "apology" for his mispoken words...

He still sounds like a racist to me.

Something that Mr. King would have been proud of I'm sure.
