I have been in his corner since before the hurricane and remained in his corner up until yesterday. So you are dead wrong in even implying that I don’t like him.
In addition, it’s not about the words he said nor their intent. It’s about him representing this city in a professional manner that brings the community and nation together in the wake of Katrina and Rita. It’s about the perception that will be the fallout from these remarks. Conventions and businesses that were planning events in this city have already started canceling. His job is to help the city, not state things that further divide and allienate us from getting help. His remarks have been nothing but negative. Even the black leaders of this community are flabbergasted by his decision to say these things knowing this city’s current status and how we are being watched to the n’th degree. Plain stupidity on his part.
You mentioned something about true colors. Well, I live here and you don’t, so it’s nothing to you. Will you be at ALL affected by his comments?
Just know, his words hurt this city and state, and all you can come up with is that it’s much ado about nothing or that we must not like him. That’s pretty shallow thinking…imo
