Re: “Name shaming the Talmadge Bridge

Spoken like a truly blind person of privilege.

I guess its impossible to address local crime and corruption but also deal with our local fairways being named after corrupt, racist politicians huh?

I'd like to see you in Germany telling Jews to not worry about monuments and streets memorializing Nazi members who slaughtered them and promoted their slaughter. Or telling jews that its ok for their children to run out to Nazi fight songs at their school's sporting events and Nazi flags being flown on government buildings and at school functions.

Maybe if the skin tone is different you can readily recognize your tone deafness.

Stay up brother and keep living and learning.

Re: “Editor's Note: Mista Dee's reality

What's fascinating is that nobody seems to look at how Mr. DEE got to a life of crime...what happened in his life to get him there....His parent's life...Their parents life. ...what this country has done to his people to put them in a situation of despair looooooooooong before he was even born....what this country has done to cripple his people to keep them down. How government agencies through government funded programs deliberately brought drugs into black neighborhoods through COINTELPRO.....took out our leaders.....state funded government programs like the Mississippi Sovereignty Commission and the crippling terrorism that came of it....destroyed thriving and wealthy black communities like they did in Tulsa by air bombing whole black communities. Then they created a war on drugs...not to actually stop the drugs...because the government brought the drugs in...but to gear up for the profits to be made from dumping millions of black people into prison for ridiculously long periods of time. Nobody wants to look at how Mr. Dee's life....like many others was ruined before he was even born. Many will look to the outliers as the example of what should be the norm. "Such not Such did it.....why can't you??".....hilarious. We live in a country and a system that REQUIRES a certain amount of poor people just to function. But then we lie to everybody and tell them that EVERYBODY can make it....EVERYBODY can have the American dream if they work hard. It's just not true, and the country's success is based of it not being true. Sad situation when people are so disconnected that they can't find the empathy needed to understand the truth of what is America. The truth is, black and white people live in two different worlds, but only black people see it. White people have the privilege of being able to ignore the facts of this. Everyday black people put on mask to make themselves more acceptable...to make white people more comfortable. Everything what you may call "civilized" black folks do...is to show themselves to be different from what society sees as delinquent and uncivilized. We have to go to extra lengths to be hired, extra lengths to be treated as humans and not be looked at as thugs, extra lengths to not have the police look at us as a threat, extra lengths just to live.....to live. I don't expect most to get this or understand where I am coming from. There are even some blacks so brainwashed they don't even get it. But this young man was a human....living in hell on earth....because he didn't know enough about himself rise above the reality of his situation here in America...because the true knowledge of who he is...who his people are....and what they have given to the world and thus country has been kept from him. But there will be a last laugh.....There will be a time of reckoning. ...those who laugh and mock now.....won't be the ones laughing later. The black people of this world are fed up, but keep it coming...The killings....The character assassinations...The media lynchings.....th shaping of people's minds to view us as animals who deserve what we get. Keep it going....There will be a last laugh....and the people who are laughing now....won't be the ones laughing in the end.
