Re: “Editor's Note: Parade of negativity?

The only news worth reading is in the Connect. Thanks, Jim.

In the past, some of the Editorials were over-the-top dripping with political correctness, but they were editorials. This has calmed down, thankfully.

Re: “City Market shooting/collision during Fourth of July celebration claims three dead, eight injured

Savannah is a train wreck and will remain so until "outsiders" are elected. Eddie is a good ole boy of the First Degree. (If you have a Parkway named after you, goes without saying.) Everyone on the council are good ole boys and gals protecting one special interest group or another. Most of the good oles are protecting the population segment committing 90% the crimes. Same as it ever was.

Re: “Who will save the world?

It's good to hear about community events from a source other than the dreadful SMN. However, is the stream of Alt Left, lecturing self-righteousness from this editor really necessary? There is a strong case to be made that this rhetoric divides rather than unites the city.

Re: “How to be a better white person right now

We’re getting closer to the truth. This article has the makeup of something from Mao’s Little Red Book. It feels like a scathing attack one would expect during China’s Cultural Revolution under Mao. The primary weapon of the Cultural Revolution (after execution or torture) was public shaming, attacking and humiliating people for their beliefs. This piece of work does a wonderful job of shaming those who do not follow the progressive party line.

Re: “How to be a better white person right now

Thanks, Skip. (If that's your real name.)

We are in agreement. We view each other as a major part of the problem.

Re: “How to be a better white person right now

There's an important point missing here. European Americans do not have a patent on racism. Racism is a condition shared throughout the human species. History is loaded with examples if one cares to look. While most are not, there are plenty of black racist.

The tone if not the content of this article is racist, or it's dripping with White Guilt. Last of all, will this high-handed moralistic lecture that talks down to those who may see it a little differently influence anyone? "How to be a better white person right now." God help us.

Re: “Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

There is no law enforcement here. Policemen have told me point blank they cannot take the fight where it needs to go. Most of the crime is committed by black males, and to a large extent, they are untouchable. One cop told me, "They (black thugs mostly) have no fear of us. They know we can't do anything." That's it.

Savannah is pretty nice, not fantastic. Have lived in better places. We would leave tomorrow if we could. We've lived in Baldwin Park for over a decade. About 70% of the people from other parts of the country left with their butts on fire. They couldn't stand it, crime, the race situation. Some bailed out in less than a year, others maybe put up with it for a couple of years. Most were home owners so bailing so fast was not a casual decision.

This is what we decided 13 years ago: Savannah is a train wreck and nothing will change until laws are enforced. Same as it ever was.
