Race-segregated packs crowd to watch female oil wrestlers in unimaginable Louisiana nightlife

by Larry Geller

BP Cleanup Workers Gone Wild (Mother Jones, 7/22/2010)

According to the article, black cleanup workers have been segregated in barracks on off-shore barges. At night, though, they gather with whites in race-segregated packs to ogle female oil wrestlers at a bar named Daddy’s Money. For them, it’s may the oil spill last forever. Nevermind the big fights requiring police intervention.

"We'll be here as long as oil keeps washing up," says a contractor, and so, no doubt, so will the oil wrestlers, and the racially-charged brawls.

Is this what normal life in the South is like?? Lucky we live Hawaii.


Having never been to the South, I can't say for sure. Maybe such behavior is peculiar to the Gulf.

Not really. Southerners still refer to the Civil War as The War of Northern Aggression.

Rebel flags still fly, even at many public buildings.
