Would this fly?

Here's an imagined speech from Mayor John Smith of Whiteville.

"Smith promised that Whiteville will be a 'vanilla' city again. 'This
city will be a majority European-American city. It's the way God wants it
to be. You can't have Whiteville no other way. It wouldn't be Whiteville.' He
also said: 'Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane
after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country.'"


Could he get away with this? Such horrible grammer, such raving race-mongering? But Mayor Ray Nagin did. Just substitute Nagin for Smith, New Orleans for Whiteville, African-American for European-American, and oh, yeah; chocolate for vanilla and you'd have this speech made yesterday by Nagin. How did this doofus ever get elected?

Only a LIEberal would get away with making the statement. If a Republican made it, there would be a visit to the hangin tree.

Very true, ABF.
Trent Lott caught a lot of flack because of an offhand comment made at Strom Thurmond's birthday celebration.

Only a LIEberal...

Abfreedom, that's true; however, Jesse Jackson would be saying that hanging is too good for such an "offense".

Reverse discrimination is considered okay! If we said the same thing in reverse, as you very aptly pointed out, it would be everywhere. People would be horrified!

Nagin got elected because there are a lot of idiots in Louisianna, pure and simple.

I remember seeing him on the news after the huuricane hit New Orleans, and I thought, my little brother is smarther than this guy! How on earth is he qualified to run a city? Especially when he told FEMA to stay away cuz the help wasn't needed, and when he told the people they should go back to their homes, though they were flooded or destroyed and there was still water in the streets.
