Ever since Isiah Carey broke the story on his Insite blog, most of the other media outlets in town have followed up with items on the allegedly offensive advertisement that Mayor Bill White took out in the Houston Defender, a black paper, for Martin Luther King Day.

We've gotten a peak at the Christmas ad he's planning to take out.
