Unfortunately for this city, there are very few prominent black citizens--including and especially civil-court judges--who are not corrupt. I believe that blacks have bought into the proposition that whites "did it to them" for years and it is time that blacks can have their revenge. Unfortunately, that means that the entire city goes down in the process. Can anyone actually say that New Orleans is a well-run municipality?
Gambit is perceptive enough to recognize the citizens that are making positive differences in our community.
I would be delighted to see a black leader who is as color-blind as blacks have demanded white people to be. Instead, we have the ilk of C.Ray Nagin (who got the Gambit nod before they realized what an ass he is) and the ever-corrupt Marc Morial and his brother Jacques. Other ignominious notables include, but are not limited to, Tracie Washington, the good ole Jefferson family, the ever-inept Warren Riley, and several bribery-welcoming civil court judges. If New Orleans had a competent black person who did not simply cater to other blacks and who truly believed that all of the citizenry deserved a good city---now THAT person would be worthy of a Gambit award.
