...is different now.
Civil Rights Lawyer Tracie Washington became the subject of public (mostly white folks) fury over her public records requests earlier this month; they said she was "racist" for only asking for the emails of the white city council members; they said she was in cahoots with Mayor Nagin to; they said she was reckless; someone even vandalized her home and she recieved quite a few anonymous threats.
To all this I can only say - http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2009/03/mayor_ray_nagins_ownership_of.html
Funny how everything they said looks now that Washington has just exposed an excellent example of official malfeasance by none other than Mayor Nagin. So white folks, where this conspiracy so many of you are sure there is?
Surely there's more shoes to drop, but I think Washington's actions speak louder than pundits words at this point. Gosh, I can't wait till this sucker is up and running - http://www.nolapublicrecords.org/
With muckrakers like Washington in the mix the battle between the Naginites and White League 2.0 is sure to get crazier.
