Independent Investigative Journalism and Commentary from New Orleans, LA
Okay Dambala, I know that a persons race should not be a factor here, but I am letting you know my race to make a point. Now I am pissed. I am a successful African-American female who does not agree with what is going on with your city government. I am sick and tired of people within my own race who try to play the card in order to get their way while at the same time robbing other blacks (who are clueless) blind. The PERFECT example of this is when hurricane Katrina occurred. I did not watch any footage or news reports because I knew that I would not be able to sleep, but when many of the evacuees arrived here and I provided water, clothes, funds, etc. it hit home and I was pissed especially when brother Nagin and his buddies began making comments and the ONE comment that disturbed me the most was in reference to "chocolate". Give me a break. If he loved "chocolate" so much then why in the HELL did he fail his "chocolate" people? Boy, I have alot of questions for him and his buddies including Eddie. It is people like them who make the rest of us look bad. Very bad. I refuse to be placed in the same category. There is only one race that I am a part of and that is the human race.
Signed it as soon as I saw it and passed it on to 20 others who will no doubt pass it on. If nothing else, it makes a statement.Used my real name too. Hope Jordan's office doesn't keep a list with all the tickets I've gotten in the last week. OY!
be human baby! just be human. that's got to be good enough. why cant people get that?
Brother Dambala, sorry for the venting, but I am just fed up with these bad actors. Thank you brother for reading my view on this.
I have signed the petition and have let others know as well.
Signed the petition and placed a link to it on my blog.Thank you.
Thanks to all for forwarding and/or signing. And thanks to Dambala for posting. Whether or not you believe it will accomplish anything, it does send another message. We are sick and damn tired of criminals being allowed to walk.
