The other day when I read of Nagin’s latest…
Mayor C. Ray Nagin has suggested that the slow recovery and rebuilding
of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina — which has prevented many
black former residents from returning — is part of a plan to change
the racial makeup and political leadership of his and other cities.
…I thought oh Christ on a triscuit.Adrastos sums it up best:
First, C Ray is the Mayor of New
Orleans, the slow recovery is *partially* his responsibility. Of
course, as the world’s oldest teenager, he doesn’t like the R word.
Second, the Louisiana pols who C Ray dislikes so much-Governor Meemaw
and the Landrieus-are heavily dependent on African American voters.
That “they” has no interest whatsoever in bleaching, ethnically
cleansing or, whatever you want to call it, the racial makeup of New
Orleans. C Ray’s buddy, Piyush (Bobby) Jindal is the likely beneficiary
of any demographic changes in the voters of Orleans Parish. Finally, as
we locals know, C Ray is opposed to re-opening public housing and
hasn’t lifted a finger to help poor folks return home except to vote
for him last Spring. If there’s a THEY, C Ray is one of THEM.
sick and tired of seeing C Ray’s chronic case of verbal diarrhea
rearing its malodorous head in the national MSM but as long as he’s in
office it will happen. They think that, because he speaks like a
character out of a Seventies blaxploitation film, that he’s anything
other than what he really is, a crony-capitalist style Republican who
changed parties to get elected.
UPDATE: Also from Dangerblond…
Sugar Ray Nagin is saying that he is the only thing stopping a Vast
Conspiracy between the weather and the Landrieu family to keep black
people from returning to New Orleans. Thank god the white Republicans
came to our rescue and got him re-elected. Will all the black people
who have returned to New Orleans because of something Ray Nagin did
please raise your hands? Hmmm. I didn’t think so.
UPDATE: More from Facing South whose title succinctly makes the point… “Nagin’s Part of the Anti-Black Conspiracy He Decries”
