NEW ORLEANS -- Mayor Ray Nagin told a crowd gathered at City Hall on Monday for a march honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that New Orleans will be "chocolate" again.

New Orleans proper was more than 60 percent black before Hurricane Katrina displaced about three-quarters of its population, but sparing predominantly white neighborhoods.

Along Martin Luther King Blvd., a grassy median near a King statue and memorial was cleaned up and landscaped in advance of today's. Many of the buildings nearby, including a major housing project nearby, are abandoned and in ruins, still bearing the water stains left behind by flooding.

But Nagin promises that all of the city's residents will be encouraged to return and rebuild the neighborhoods they loved.

Nagin said New Orleans will be a majority African American city.

Let's see how this will play out.

(1) Nagin will quickly "clean up" the black parts of town.
(2) Black people will move back in.
(3) 20 years later, black people will get cancer because the chemical soup was not thoroughly cleaned.
(4) White people will be blamed.

Just a technical question. I’m half middle eastern, can I still be a honkie?

It all comes down to ignorance and lack of prospective.

If people understood skin color was ordained by DNA, just like eye color, hair color, etc, would they still be racist?

Most people are just too stupid to get out of their own way, or my fucking way, for that matter.

Here's a little more:

"NEW ORLEANS - Mayor Ray Nagin suggested Monday that Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and other storms were a sign that "God is mad at America" and at black communities, too, for tearing themselves apart with violence and political infighting.
ADVERTISEMENT

"Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country," Nagin, who is black, said as he and other city leaders marked Martin Luther King Day.

"Surely he doesn't approve of us being in
Iraq under false pretenses. But surely he is upset at black America also. We're not taking care of ourselves."

Nagin also promised that New Orleans will be a "chocolate" city again. Many of the city's black neighborhoods were heavily damaged by Katrina.

"It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans — the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans," the mayor said. "This city will be a majority African American city. It's the way God wants it to be. You can't have New Orleans no other way. It wouldn't be New Orleans."

Nagin described an imaginary conversation with King, the late civil rights leader.

"I said, `What is it going to take for us to move on and live your dream and make it a reality?' He said, `I don't think that we need to pay attention any more as much about other folks and racists on the other side.' He said, `The thing we need to focus on as a community — black folks I'm talking about — is ourselves.'"

Nagin said he also asked: "Why is black-on-black crime such an issue? Why do our young men hate each other so much that they look their brother in the face and they will take a gun and kill him in cold blood?"

The reply, Nagin said, was: "We as a people need to fix ourselves first."

Nagin also said King would have been dismayed with black leaders who are "most of the time tearing each other down publicly for the delight of many."

A day earlier, gunfire erupted at a parade to commemorate King's birthday. Three people were wounded in the daylight shooting amid a throng of mostly black spectators, but police said there were no immediate suspects or witnesses."

People DO understand that, that why People in China dont have Black babies or A pregnant African woman does'nt give birth to a Blue eyed blond haired child. We know it's genetic. Racism has to do with a LOT of Factors besides how one looks. One of them is culture, "tribalism", Fear of the unknown, comfort with familiarity, the fact is noone "wants" to be a minority that's why people stick with their own kind rather than be an "outsider" and also sometimes its not talking about things that seem "insensitive" such as why are most blacks good at bastketball? Why is the NHL mostly White? to even mention that is considered racist. the plain fact is any doctor will tell you taht there are Regional genetic differences in people making some more susceptable to disease or better at running or whatever but it's all Hush hush.

Most people are just too stupid to get out of their own way, or my fucking way, for that matter.

Wasn't MLKs dream everyone living in harmony? Blacks and whites living side by side and not seeing color? Personally, as far as that goes, I agree with MLK. But, Nagin, Jackson, Sharpton and their ilk make it impossible for the nation to move beyond that. Not sparing the Klan in my offensive, but the klan is ineffectual today. The rainbow coalition and black panthers and such are the main cause of racial issues in todays society. The race baiters keep things agitated. I don't care what color an individual is. I take them by their actions. As to the half middle eastern gentleman, sorry, but that makes no difference to me either. In the US, practically no one knows what true racism is. Try being a half american half german kid growing up in occupied germany. You get it from both sides. Everyone hates you because of your lineage. That is true discrimination. Not this whiney ass bullshit about he didn't hire me because I am black even though the other guy scored a lot higher on his test crap.

Ray Nagin is an Idiot.

Who do you think is going to rebuild NO? the people that left were too lazy to work to begin with they have found they can be lazy elsewhere. it pays the same!

meanwhile crackas and mexicans who smell goverment cheese are decending upon NO. Mexicans aren't dumb they can smell a job oppertunity a whole country away. Those mexicans rebuilding NO are going to make a fat wad of cash. They can send it back to mexico or send for thier wives and children and live in a city they know, a city they built. which do you think they are going to do?

He just had to throw that in there as if it was relevant to anything about restoring NO. How the hell does he know what God approves of or disapproves of?

You should lick the pavement in Hershey PA. It tastes like peppermint!

It is also the place where I had a brush with fame: I was nearly run-over by a golf cart being driven by:

Jerry VanDyke.

No kidding.



Sadly, he did not have a banjo at the time.

I was actually there with a group (this was many years ago) and a very attractive girl that was with us stepped out into the path without looking, and I grabbed her by the waist and turned just in time for the golf cart to miss us both.

"You really need to watch.....Wait a minute. Was that Jerry Van Dyke??" I said.

Wierdest moment EVER. Imagine filling that out on the insurance forms.

CAUSE OF INJURY:

Hit by Jerry Van Dyke in the middle of Hershey Park.

just because it is brown, it don't mean it is chocolate.

So is he going to post "Blacks only" signs for certain neighborhoods? I wonder if he is going to push for black schools, busses, restaurants, and so on as well? If he stays in charge, they might even get their own special water fountains.
