Oh no New Orleans is going to be a chocolate city

It seems that Ray Nagin's comment about New Orleans will be a chocolate city again in his MLK day speech the other day has made some people upset.

I can understand why he made the comment. Many people worry that people will come in a buy the cheep property and push the poor (i.e. many of the Blacks) out of the city.

some how some people that heard Nagin's comment thank that saying that NO will be Black means he is saying "No whiteys allowed" but if one looks at the histories of the other chocolate cities in this country then you know that they are mostly Black not because anyone actively pushed Whites out. It just when city got a little brown many of the Whites decided to leave town (see Detroit, DC, Watts, etc)
