Ray Nagin: God wants New Orleans to be a Black City

You really have gotta love our enlightened Louisiana politicians. After the fashion of Pat Robertson, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has publicly announced in his Martin Luther King Day speech the mind of God to the American public: God sent the hurricanes to destroy New Orleans because He is mad about the Iraq war.

God also wants New Orleans to be a black city, according to Prophet Nagin who 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."


Now I will not unload on such, well, stupid (and racist?) comments to point out all the problems with them. I can only think that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King must be rolling in his grave, since Nagin invoked his name, along with God's (in vain I suspect).

I wonder what (if anything) this says about Louisiana in general and "Black" New Orleans in particular?

what? you don't want New Orleans to be a "chocolate city?" And they gave us m&m's on my first day back at NOBTS to welcome us back to the chocolate city. I can't believing you're being such a hater...
