And many said the high number of deaths were because of the Christian festival, Mardi Gras in late February, A Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, observed in many Christian countries through participating in confession and absolution, the ritual burning of the previous year’s Holy Week palms, finalizing one’s Lenten sacrifice, as well as consuming pancakes and other sweets. Louisiana is one of the states in US that observed this holy week.
The source said that the black Mayor of Louisiana’s biggest city New Orleans didn’t cancel Mardi Gras in late February and this got many people especailly the Afican-american people occupy the state got the infection which has already killed many of them.
“Also, a reminder that the Black mayor of Louisiana’s biggest city New Orleans didn’t cancel Mardi Gras in late February, and later blamed the Trump Administration for not telling her to.” Rob Smith tweeted
Many Americans have blamed the Mayor for being unfamiliar with the US Constitution. and advised that she should go back and learn history and step down from being Mayor until she full well learns it.
One of the respondents said the reson why she did not cancle that festival was she wanted to make money from it and as well she wasn’t thinking about the people! she deserves all the blame herself!
Mayor didn’t cancel it bcuz it’s a big money maker for NO. She wasn’t thinking about the people! She deserves all the blame herself!
