Walking while white in New Orleans



This happened in New Orleans this past Saturday. These two poor saps were attending a Church conference when they decided to walk down the street to their hotel.

If you listen to the news reports you can hear the usual story. "Nothing to see here. It is perfectly safe. Crime is actually down statistically. Don't be racist. When they go to rob you just give it up. Don't disrespect them by having your head turned when they are playing the knockout game. Give up your white privilege."

What Church in their right mind would have a conference in New Orleans? Oh. The Unitarians. Never mind.

Nicely put.

The Blonde and I were in the Crescent City more than a dozen years ago and it was relatively safe. Then came the hurricane and the flood and Ray Nagin and the Chocolate City and now the streets are unsafe, much like Baltimore.

And Chiraq.

Bienville indeed.

I'm curious whether the Guardian Angels have reached the stage where it degenerates into a racket.

It's a damn shame because New Orleans is one of the great US cities. It is in the top 3 for food, most important for we Eyetalians. I have eaten some superb meals there.
