A recent survey indicated that over 80 % of African Americans who were flodded out of New Orleanswon't come back. Despite the willingness and generousity of blacks and white from across the country to help, it still takes money to start a new life. Money comes from jobs. I think knowing this survey, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was desperately finding a way to get more Black New Orleanians to come home:
In his speech, he said, "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." Nagin added, "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."
I think this is a comment that should have been kept at his dinner table. By stating this publicallythere will now be those who will want to make sure the demographics will never be the way they were. What do you think?
