First off, Ray Nagin is very new to the politics game, having no prior experience before becoming. He was a lifelong Republican before switching to Democrats when he ran for Mayor of New Orleans, where the majority of the population is black. There is no doubt there is a correlation between him changing parties and NO being mostly black. Blacks in general favor liberal policies more becauses they raise the taxes and force the wealthier and middle class to subsidize for them.
Now if Nagin ran for mayor of New Orleans as a Republican, no doubt he still would've won because of black pride, but there would be dissatifaction between the GOP and the people of New Orleans, if Nagin followed conservative policies, he wouldn't get reelected, so that's why he switched to Democrats.
Now we must accept the double standard in this country, if a major Republican figure made a statement on how a city is "milk" or mostly white, and he stated that that is how God intended it to be, there would be a public outcry in the media.
The Liberal Media would jump on that particular person and pounce over his statements, lashing at him for his racist comments and attacking the Republican party and try to portray him as a White Supremist.
Now no one has yet to call Nagin a racist directly in any major news organization, even though without a shadow of a doubt his comments were, and we all know if this was a white Republican making this statement about another major metropolitan he would get jumped by the media, and impeached slapped with lawsuits.
However this statement most likely will destroy Nagin's career outside of New Orleans, once the entire country realizes how racist he is. He will never amount to anything more than a Mayor, he has cut off the bridge to a larger political career.
I read an article from CNN and some of his comments stated that he is able to connect with the late Martin Luther King Jr spritually, and speaks his mind as if it was MLK jr, as if he knew how MLK jr would've said in the current situation.
People please respect the intelligence of this forum and read the article before commenting or it'll make you look like an idiot and there will be loss of respect for you, and it undermines your credibility as a poster.
