Default "Chocolate New Orleans"

http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/01/17/nagin.city/

Yea, that's right. A "Chocolate new orleans" Now, if that's not one of the most latently racist remarks ever, I don't know what is.

I think his pitiful attempt at trying to explain why he said that is... well, pitiful.

"You mix dark chocolate, with white milk, and you get chocolate." NO! You get CHOCOLATE MILK! I don't think New Orleans wants to be Chocolate Milk.

Enjoy ;D

How there they turn the holyst of words (next to the PRECIUS) into a racist remark, I am not a racist, and I belive in equality.

Well, if you mix the waters of the gulf with the soil around the city I'm sure you wind up with something similar in consistancy to chocolate milk. It had to be said. Sorry. I return you to your disbelief in some of society's leaders.

It's hard to see how people take these words, and just turn around and call him a racist. It's a fact New Orleans is predominately black, it's a fact. I have no problem with hearing the words "chocolate" used to describe a race, there is seriously nothing wrong with that, but heaven help up us in our Politically correct world of ours if we ever use a food to describe the majority of a race's skin tone.

Nagin saying, that the city is, and will be a black majority even after Katrina is cleaned up. It's a way of saying that blacks are welcome back.

Sorry if sounded rude, but I'm in a really PO'd mood, when it gets to these things. All apologies.

If that quote was made in the US, said leader would be publicly hanged.

If anything, I find the mayor's comments to be amusing more than inflammatory. You can spin the comment a number of different ways, and no matter what color you are, you can be offended.

If you're white or non-black maybe the Mayor is saying he wants a "black-only" New Orleans, which excludes your right to live there and so you can be offended.

If you're black- maybe the Mayor is saying "only black people live in this wrecked hole of a city" and still be offended.

People in America need to lighten up. I'm telling you- all public education here needs to include watching Blazing Saddles, because people here are just too sensitive about crap.

Wow... That guy should probably buy a shotgun and board up his windows what with the way people have been responding to ANYTHING that is even vaguely racist.

Personally, I think that the US (and the rest of the "free" world) is just PMSing.

And yes, you can quote me on that.
