    He meant that New Orleans would be a black, dark Negroe city! A place for beasts to roam and pillage, at leisure. A place of depravity and sin. A deep, dark hole where the brothers could live in peace!

    It's not hard to figure out. He meant that he wanted the city to stay mostly black as it was before Hurricane Katrina hit. There were rumors among people in N.O. and among a few black politicians there that they were trying to basically keep the majority of blacks out of N.O by not helping them move back into their neighborhoods and only helping the whites who lived in the better part of N.O. so that's why he said he wanted to keep N.O. a chocolate city.

    Black everyone seems to be astonishing. i do no longer think of people cherished the fact by way of fact Nagin looked as though it may marginalizing his white supplies (who're now maximum individuals inhabitants) who additionally lost lots of their properties and sources. once you think of of white people you in all probability assume properly to do middle type and better middle type people yet there have been a lot of poor whites who lost each and every thing for the duration of Katrina too. they might have additionally felt ignored by way of fact Nagin appeared to be calling back basically the black citizens of the city. So in actuality the fact only marginalized way too many communities and it isnt some thing that the mayor of a city per variety could have mentioned after an excellent disaster like katrina. additionally the existence-style in New Orleans replaced into waiting to take place no longer basically by way of fact of blacks, yet by way of merging of cultures that replaced into suitable in that section for hundreds of years. Blacks surely contributed however the excellent factor regarding the city replaced into that it replaced into an occasion of what effective issues could be performed as quickly as we set aside our bigotry and permit cultures mixture freely.
