    rather not say
  1. That's not sad.
  2. Long overdue is right. No one should have to attend college in an area like that with the crime and the blight.
  3. Here's what another Mayor had to say about removing confederate statues and I don't think anyone else could have said it any better. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/23/opinion/mitch-landrieus-speech-transcript.html?mcubz=3
  4. The wild, wild west side.
  5. A nice fantasy, no doubt. Many would believe that what you described would happen under a Trump presidency.
  6. There's too much crime to stop. No time for votes on meaningless hot topics.
  7. Guido, come on. Baltimore is one of the most liberal cities in the country. 63% black. Progressive white population. The government is a reflection of that. Are you really surprised they did this? Are there any real Baltimore citizens who were pissed off when they woke up and found out that their confederate monuments were removed overnight? Maybe a few? Severely outweighed by the many who were, or didn't care one way or another. Not sure where everyone lives around here, but I am willing to bet that no one, or a very small number of people who post here and were against these removals are actually actually Bmore citizens.
  8. I am agreeing with you, basically. 63% of the city pop. is black.
  9. And if it means something culturally and psychologically to 63% of the population, then where is the problem?
  10. We elect politicians so they can make decisions. Pugh made a decision. You don't like it, vote her out next election. If you're a citizen of the city, that is. If not, then not much you can do but complain.
  11. Who is going to pay for AN OPEN CITY WIDE VOTE to take down some stupid statues? The city is already poor, now you want them to fund pop up votes for every hot topic? And if you cant see the difference in your last analogy...I don't even know what to say to you.
  12. Well, those statues are history!!!! As in...THEY GONE!!! RIM SHOT
