The Bush Administration's secretary of housing and urban development says New Orleans will probably never become a majority-black city again.
Alphonso Jackson's skin is black, but his core seems mighty white. He told hurricane evacuees in Houston that New Orleans is "not going to be as black as it was for a long time, if ever again."
According to the Washington Times, Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL) took exception to Jackson's remarks: "Anybody who can make that kind of projection with some degree of certainty or accuracy must have a crystal ball that I can't see or maybe they are more prophetic than any of us can imagine," he said.
Prophetic, or they've got a goal in mind.
