An excellent examination of the context of our recent election and the “race,” card. Da Po’ Blog post gives a lot of context, including the white flight that made us “Chocolate City,” in the first place. Required reading!

If this election was about race, it was about racial preservation. The existence of an African-American culture in New Orleans is endangered. Not just African-American political power.

I felt Landrieu was the better administrator of the two candidates, better suited to control the everyday activities of a municipal government. But, if we really want all New Orleanians to return, then reelecting Nagin sends that message.

Need I remind anyone that African American culture is reesponsible for most all of the music you listen to, either directly or as an antecendent?
