Our Part of the World
...[in the post flood situation] the Americans have seen their opportunity to do what they couldn’t do 200 years ago. They want to impose their ways on us and get rid of our local culture.
American values have been creeping down here ever since the Louisiana Purchase. The rigid race line. The 40-hour work week. The suburbs. The deterioration of the inner city and the public school system. Everything that makes us less a community and more a group of individuals. Everything that separates us from our family, our friends, our culture. Our tribe is in danger....
...America wants to own us. They want New Orleans to be an American town. We must fight.
and nope, we'll NEVER be like the rest of the 49 United States of America. We're like the redheaded stepchild and that's what makes this home.
Hey, Ashley....didja take your wellbutrin?
