New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu is racing against the city’s impending 300th anniversary to crown himself a Southern “Great Emancipator” (Imitator is more like it). Yesterday’s 6-1 vote to deem prominent Confederate monuments as nuisances hastens eventual removal, while accelarating racial tension at warp speed. I would be remiss not to also factor in the 2016 presidential election cycle and his prospects should a Democrat become our next president.
The success of either proposition rests upon manipulating Black – and White – pain into a political propellent which would make master manipulator Lyndon Baines Johnson green with envy.
Landrieu is banking on becoming a new “Great Emancipator” in these turbulent times, whose halo will blind inquiry into an autocratic legacy which, oddly enough, is racist toward Black autonomy and repressive regarding blue (police) sovereignty. The fact that mayor Mitch Landrieu is a monumental manipulator is one which we’ll rue as New Orleanians turn upon each other after transparent hubris ripped open old scabs better left untouched.
