Milky Milky riiiight

I think the mayor of New Orleans was listening to that Blackeyed Peas song and thinking about milky milky Coco Puffs. It would be funny to reverse what he said today. First, here are his actual words:

It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans – the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans... This city will be a majority African American city. It's the way God wants it to be. read the whole article here

And it sounds funny to turn it around and imagine a white guy saying it. Here's what it would be like:

[Setting: Salt Lake City is hit by a vicious disaster, and as the city begins recovering, the mayor hints that he's not thrilled that many of the jobs to rebuild the city are going to Latinos and blacks, many of whom did not live in Salt Lake before disaster struck.]

Mayor: It's time for us to rebuild Salt Lake City -- the one that should be a vanilla Salt Lake, he says. I don't care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are, this city will be vanilla at the end of the day. This city will be a majority white city. It's the way God wants it to be. You can't have Salt Lake City any other way. It wouldn't be Salt Lake City." taken from an article by Linda Chavez that probably won't be up for long

Yes it's always interesting to turn the tables. Anyway, this is my new blog template, and I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out what to blog about these days, so bear with me as I try to get back into the blogging world.
