It’s an ongoing debate that often ends in argument throughout Southwest Louisiana, and that is the question of rather Contraband Days is offensive, or not.

The celebrated French pirate and privateer, Jean Lafitte, traveled the Gulf of Mexico in the early 19th century and was known to operate a warehouse in New Orleans to help disperse the goods smuggled by his brother Pierre Lafitte. Lafitte also ran an illicit and lucrative slave trade. Those things in itself raise the debate, why do we celebrate a man who engaged in acts that are today looked upon as shameful, illegal, and offensive? Offensive not only to African Americans, shameful not only to his decedents, but also to anyone who is sympathetic to humanity as well as against the act of pirating, or for the lack of a better word, robbery.

Though we did not come here to debate today, regardless of race, color, or creed. We simply want to know, or you offended by the Contraband Day’s celebration? Take our poll below.
