Let me begin by saying that I am a Senior Citizen White Male. I am not a
bigot. I over came that with the help of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a long
time ago. I thought you were a little over bearing, a bit holier than thou
with you're cursing at the President on TV, and your outlandish behavior. But,
I gave you the benefit of the doubt. I thought you were just fighting for your
city. But, now you have played the race card. when you declared that God and
you, wanted New Orleans to be a Chocolate City!
I'm not angry, just sad. I think it is time for someone to say what I am
saying here. If it has to be me, so be it. I'm old enough, wise enough and
tough enough to take your kind.
If you were a white man/mayor and made the opposite remarks that the city
needed to be a "White New Orleans", you would have had every liberal media
outlet, the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and maybe even Teddy Kennedy
there, to serve your head up to the nation on national television.
You would be stripped of your political duties and reduced to a racist pig and
kicked out of office in disgrace. Luckily for you, you're "chocolate".
You need to step down, now. But let's first take a look at your "Chocolate
City". The vast majority of crime comes from the "chocolate factory". The
majority of welfare goes, to the "chocolate factory". The majority of
dilapidated, filthy housing is owned or inhabited by the chocolate factory".
Eighty eight percent of the chocolate babies born in your city are
illegitimate, when was the last time you devoted time to that disgrace?
The poor public education system, the worst in America, is run by and
inhabited by the "chocolate factory". Just look at all of the "chocolate city"
public housing eyesores. Why, you could never get rid of that demoralizing
part of your city, but Mother Nature did!
Just who do you think built the city? The French Acadians were not chocolate.
Who do you think fills the majority of restaurants, hotels, conventions, or
even the Superdome on Sundays, chocolates nope, white folks that love the city.
Why 30-40 years ago, New Orleans was not a black majority city, and it was the
crown jewel of the South. But since then, New Orleans has had four "chocolate"
mayors, and this city has been spiraling down the tubes ever since! Just check
your own record.
I know, I grew up there as a teenager. I could walk the streets unafraid of
anyone, and now when I visit I carry my firearm with me everywhere. I have
had three cars stolen there. I have been mugged twice, until I gave up my
Saints season tickets and forgot about your city.
Corruption and "reverse racism" has plagued your city for far too long. You
had a chance to rebuild a better city, one that welcomed all people, but you
chose to be a bigot! You chose to be the worst kind of bigot, one that has the
safety of being black, and can say what you want and not have to suffer the
consequence of your words or deeds.
You are a disgrace to the dream that Dr. King died for. I just hope that all
the chocolate people of New Orleans don't feel the way your smug self does, for
if they do, they will never be anything other than what they were before the Big
Wind Blew. I hate bigots like you and hope you learn from all of this, but I
bet you won't!
Just thought you'd like to know.

“In response to the two students having been charged with arson of nine Alabama community churches, Birmingham-Southern College has suspended each student from the college and immediately banned them from campus awaiting further action by the authorities. The students, faculty and staff of our college are at once shocked and outraged, and we share the sorrow of our neighbors whose churches represent the heart and soul of their communities.
“These cruel and senseless acts of destruction have profoundly touched our college community. Where there once existed such a clear line between the harmless and playful and the harmful and cruel, we increasingly see young adults throughout our nation incapable of distinguishing between healthy and destructive conduct. Boundaries are all too often exceeded. The social use of alcohol moves easily and too frequently to dangerous irresponsibility. Innocent and healthy stages of interpersonal social encounters too frequently degrade to violent and personal acts of violation. We see symptoms of a culture of personal license so powerfully magnified in the actions of these young men.
“We also are deeply concerned for the families of these young men, knowing the pain they are experiencing. The entire community of Birmingham-Southern College—students, faculty, and staff—pledges to aid in the rebuilding of these lost churches through our resources and our labor. Together we’ll stand as a reminder of the strength of communities that transcend the differences of religion and place, as well as the effects of mindless cruelty.”
CBS announced more people can name the five Simpson characters than the five amendment freedoms guaranteed in The First Amendment. Only 1 in 1,000 can, so here is the answer:
The First Amendment freedoms - freedom of religion, freedom from establishment of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly and association - are at the heart of a healthy constitutional democracy.
A Marine stationed in Afghanistan recently received a letter from his girlfriend back home. It read as follows:
I can no longer continue our relationship. The distance between us is just too great. I must admit that I have cheated on you twice, since you've been gone, and it's not fair to either of us. I'm sorry. Please return the picture of me that I sent to you.
The Marine, with hurt feelings, asked his fellow Marines for any snapshots they could spare of their girlfriends, sisters, ex-girlfriends, aunts, cousins etc. In addition to the picture of Becky, Ricky included all the other pictures of the pretty gals he had collected from his buddies. There were 57 photos in that envelope....along with this note:
I'm so sorry, but I can't quite remember who you are. Please take your picture from the pile, and send the rest back to me.
Take Care, Ricky
