Ray Nagin

New Orleans the most irresponsible of cities has found it's match in the most irresponsible of mayors:
New Orleans 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.
"Ladies and gentlemen, what happened in New Orleans could happen anywhere," Nagin said at a dinner sponsored by the National Newspaper Publishers Association, a trade group for newspapers that target black readers. "They are studying this model of natural disasters, dispersing the community and changing the electoral process in that community."
In Nagin's deck of 52 every card is the race card. Mr. Mayor could it be that your city is below sea level and therefor particularly at risk of hurricane flooding? Hasn't everybody been warning of this eventuality for 100 years? Weren't billions of flood protection dollars pissed away in typical Big Sleazy fashion? Or was this a big scam to import 500,000 black voters to Houston?
