Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey
Nu ma nu ma iei, nu ma nu ma nu ma iei


News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Double standard alert

It's a double double standard alert, courtesy of the mouth of one failed politician! Here's what Ray Nagin, ineffectual mayor of New Orleans, had to say to commemorate Martin Luther King's birthday:

"Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country."


and:

Nagin also promised that New Orleans will be a "chocolate" city again. Many of the city's black neighborhoods were heavily damaged by Katrina.


For the first comment, will Nagin receive the same negative attention as Pat Robertson does when he attributes things to God's wrath?

For the second comment, will Nagin recieve the same negative attention as a white supremacist calling for racial purity?

No and no. Also, I doubt he will be held acountable for not providing the transportation he could have in the form of buses to avert the disaster faced by those poor folks at the arena...
