There's that darned double standard again

"This city will remain a vanilla city."

"This city will remain mostly white because that's the way God wants it to be."

How long after making such imbecilic remarks would the white politician who made them have before he was forced to make his resignation speech? An hour? Maybe two? And rightly so.

So why is it different when it's a black politician saying the opposite? The answer is as racial as the remarks themselves -- because he's black.

I loved this attempt to cover his assinine comments:

"I want everyone to be welcome in New Orleans -- black, white, Asian, everybody,"

You know, blacks, whites...them asian types with the squinty eyes. Everyone.

Hispanics best stay out of town just to be safe.

WD, Nagin later explained, “How do you make chocolate? You take dark chocolate, you mix it with white milk and it becomes a delicious drink. That is the chocolate I am talking about.”

So maybe Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, et al are the nutmeg on top?

Hilarious, CIV. So he was just a little imprecise -- he really meant he wants New Orleans to be a milk chocolate city again.
