Mayormakes stupid remarks, apologizes

Tried to sound like MLK, now they call him Mayor Wonka.

Chron.com :
"'I said some things that were totally inappropriate. ... It shouldn't have happened,' Nagin said, explaining he was caught up in the moment as he spoke to mostly black spectators, many of them fearful of being shut out of the city's rebuilding.

During the speech Monday, Nagin, who is black, said that the hurricanes that hit the nation in quick succession were a sign of God's anger toward the United States and toward black communities, too, for their violence and infighting. He also said New Orleans has to be a mostly black city again because 'it's the way God wants it to be.'"
