“Let justice roll like a river and then board at the gate to Switzerland for a first-class seat.”
Mayor of New Orleans, LaToya Cantrell, is refusing to repay money spent on international business and first-class flights to France and Switzerland.
‘As the mother of a young child whom I live for, I am going to protect myself by any reasonable means in order to ensure I am there to see her grow into the strong woman I am raising her to be.
‘Anyone who wants to question how I protect myself just doesn’t understand the world black women walk in.’
She has repeatedly refused to repay the cost of a luxury American Airlines flight from Washington Dulles Airport to Switzerland for herself in July, despite a city ban on luxury air travel.
Cantrell spent around $10,000 on her own flat bed seat and blew a similar amount on a first-class return to France earlier this year – while her aides traveled in coach
It’s pretty risky out there… flying to Switzerland.
New Orleans has a poverty rate of 23%. For children, it’s 43.8%. But LaToya Cantrell is an oppressed woman who needs a first-class seat with a flatbed to travel to sign a sister city agreement in Europe.
The oppressors are the oppressed. And the oppressed are accused of oppressing their oppressors.
