Ray Nagin, God and MLK

Of course we all already knew that the Mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, was an incompetent boob because of his poor handling of the Katrina disaster, but now we can add bigoted idiot to his resume. Speaking at a Martin Luther King Day parade yesterday, Nagin said that New Orleans would one day be "chocolate" again: "This city will be a majority African-American city. It's the way God wants it to be."

One wonders why God didn't bother to warn Nagin not to wait till the last minute to evacuate the city for Katrina, since the Mayor seems to have a direct line to Heaven. I guess God figured he didn't need to, since the National Hurricane Center had already warned him, three days before the storm hit.

The worst thing about Nagin's speech is how he dishonored the memory of MLK, by saying that "This city will be chocolate at the end of the day," and "You can't have it no other way. It wouldn't be New Orleans."

Dr. King dreamed that his "four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." But Mayor Nagin apparently believes his city should be judged by the color of the skin of its citizens.
