    New Orleans Mayor: God Wants City To Be Mostly Black

    POSTED: 1:40 pm CST January 16, 2006

    NEW ORLEANS -- The mayor of New Orleans is predicting that his city will once again be "a majority African-American city."

    In a Martin Luther King Day speech to a crowd at City Hall, Mayor Ray Nagin said, "It's the way God wants it to be." He said you can't have New Orleans any other way.

    Before Hurricane Katrina displaced about three-quarters of its population, the city was more than 60 percent black. The storm spared several mostly-white neigbhborhoods, and hit black areas the hardest.

    Nagin told the crowd gathered for a King Day march, "It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans."

    Along the city's Martin Luther King Boulevard, an area near a King statue and memorial was cleaned up and landsaped in advance of today's parade. But many of the buildings nearby are abandoned and in ruins -- including a major public housing project.

    Then let the Blacks rebuild it. If it is truely the case that God wants it black, then he will give them the resources to rebuild it. I'm sure he thinks that means the white mans government..... Did I say that out loud?

    Out loud or not, this guy is starting to sound like Farrakan. He should try living under a black government. Think Mauritania. Imagine Jesse the Lip as his Secretary of State, Johnny Cochrane as Attorney General. Jim Jackson, where are you when we need you?

    Speaking of Johnny, he is advertising heavily in the Wash DC area for suckers that want representation in all sorts of legal activities. We won't exactly call him an ambulance chaser --

    Gawd, what a mood that put me in. I'm the least prejudiced white man on the planet, but it looks like I might get converted. [beat]

    He must be a ZOMBIE then, since he is dead. Actually, most lawyers probably are the undead.

    Well, I'd like to think of myself as the second, but as you say,
    conversion is looking easier all the time.
