A thought experiment: What if the white mayor of, say, Mobile, Alabama, stood up today and announced, "God is surely mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane as a sign to those who oppose the liberation of Iraq. But he's also mad at white people for not taking care of each other. Don't worry, though, Mobile will be lily white again."
A racist loon, right?
But New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin's idea of honoring Martin Luther King Day included the very same sentiments about black people in his city.
What Would Martin Luther King, Jr. Do? Why do I think he'd have reservations about promoting the "chocolatization" of any city?
