Nagin - 'Chocolates Only'

Oh my gawd,

Associated Press article in AJC: Mayor Ray Nagin - Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and other storms were a sign that "God is mad at America"..."Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country,"..."Surely he doesn't approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses. But surely he is upset at black America also. We're not taking care of ourselves." Nagin also promised that New Orleans will be a "chocolate" city again. Many of the city's black neighborhoods were heavily damaged by Katrina.

"It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans — the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans," the mayor 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."

Guess I won't be spending any of my Vanilla income there. Can someone please direct me to a vanilla majority city as God intended it? :P
