Give Mayor Nagin a break!

Mayor Nagin of New Orleans has been under fierce attack for his "Chocolate City" remarks during his MLK speech on Monday. As I explained in a previous post, I saw his speech as an attempt to reassure African Americans that they would be welcome back in the reconstructed city.

My advice to the media: let go of the issue. Nagin is not a racist. Time to focus on the real issues of reconstruction. (Photo compliments of Times-Picayune).
