In giving the invocation at the inauguration of Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City, Rev. Fred Lucas, Jr. referred to New York City as a 'plantation.' In calling New York City a 'plantation,' Rev. Lucas asked for divine guidance to make New York the place that shines in the midst of darkness.

Rev. Lucas, a Brooklyn-based pastor serves as the chaplain for the Department of Sanitation.
Through his invocation, you'll hear Rev. Lucas asking for a new era. A new era whereby crooked places will be made straight. Rev. Lucas, in his pastor's voice quotes words from Dr. King's speech on the March of Washington for fairness and equality.

[Note: Here is what was reported by the Washington Times about Rev Lucas' remarks: The prayer played on slavery and came at an anniversary moment of the Emancipation Proclamation, which was issued by executive order by President Lincoln on Jan. 1, 1863. The pastor went on to utter the words in his invocation - 'through your divine leadership, emancipate every New Yorker from the shackles of fear, futility and frustration, from poverty, homelessness and helplessness.']

...
Rev. Lucas described the city as a "plantation", praying instead that it be "the city of God, a city set upon the hill, a light shining in darkness", and asked that de Blasio use his "divine leadership" to "emancipate every New Yorker from the shackles of fear, futility and frustration, from poverty, homelessness, helplessness".
Sorry pal, I've been to that mountaintop and I've seen that Promised Land and it's called Detroit. No, thank you. I do find it interesting, however, that Rev. Lucas chose to use the word "plantation", because parts of Brooklyn where I live in certainly resemble one, though unlike Lucas' insinuation, and very like the plantations of the antebellum south, it's the Democrats' doing.
