Ray Nagin Open Mouth - Insert Foot

What a dumbass. It's bad enough that he's an irresponsible, finger pointing jerk weed and a piss poor mayor, but now he speculates that The Big Sleazy was destroyed due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. If only that was the only goofy thing he believes:

On Monday, Nagin said God wanted New Orleans to be predominantly black and said he didn't care what the predominantly white Uptown section of the city had to say about it.
"I don't care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day," he said. "This city will be a majority African-American city. It's the way God wants it to be."
After the statement, he insisted he wasn't being divisive.


God wants New Orleans to predominantly African American? I must have been sick that day in Sunday School, the day when one learned that God looked at the color of your skin as opposed to the content of your character. (See the previous post.) Here is a newsflash Nagin: Blanche Dubois isn't the only one who depends on the kindness of strangers. Last I checked there was some debate whether or not to rebuild New Orleans at all, and this sort of intemperate talk does not help your cause.
