Thanks, Chooch. Understanding that architects design to a use, was this study for an arena?
Vanderbilt report was not for City Council. It was for state government.
@Jeff, I agree because there are bigger issues that separate those two groups.
However, in terms of economic concerns and the fact that both groups have been ignored on that front, they have pretty much everything in common.
It's a great match up though for the politicians. They can take these two groups, BLM and your working class whites (a lot of Trump supporters), and they can pit them against each other on the front of social issues. They'll spend so much time arguing over those issues that they'll never pay attention to the way both the GOP and the Dems are screwing them over by working to exacerbate the wealth gap.
Politicians will never really want to solve those social issues either, because they'll serve as such a good distraction for many years to come.
I hear ya. I'm having a really, really hard time with the thought of having to vote for Clinton. The electoral college may deliver me from the necessity. And should I view voting as making a statement, and with the lack of a national leftist voice, I may vote for Johnson.
seriously? are you 9 y.o.?
Yes, the team of very qualified experts all had access to the previous reports. They did however form their own opinions about what it would take to reopen the arena as is was. As stated in the article we also had Code Solutions Group who was the major consultant back then on the team. We met with MCIL and included them on our team to not only meet the DOJ requirements but to go above and beyond and make the press box at the top of the arena accessible.
If Trump should win the presidency, and I pray fervently that he doesn't, this is what our country's future will be like: stand up for Trump or be annihilated. Does anybody else see the resemblance between Trump's rise and the rise of Hitler?
@Jeff, I am a Kasich supporter. I don't see myself voting this time around.
Indeed CL, anyone recall the last president to give blanket amnesty to illegal immigrants? Anyone? Firefox?
BLM is a bloody shirt waved by demagogues to enrage downscale white people. Don't wait around for the day the two groups get together to face their real enemies because there are still far too many white volk and far too many politicians who are invested in having that boogeyman out there.
What the Trump supporters have done at the convention is unconscionable. I don't see how, after all this, Cruz and Kasich supporters can, in good conscience, vote for the Republican nominee. Find a good third party candidate and show the GOP establishment that you won't be exiled to the wilderness. Make your voices heard.
I don't see lower middle class whites joining forces with Black Lives Matters any time soon. Not without a saint to bring them together. I say saint because to be a saint you have to be dead, and anyone who could bring together those two groups would end up martyred in a lonely hotel room somewhere.
Actually they meant unaccompanied miners. They're educating prospectors.
Unaccompanied minors? If they were Americans wouldn't they be called runaways and be subject to juvenile detention?
If you want to see change, you have to be the change. If you want public education in Memphis to be better in the future than it has been in the past, you have to try new approaches. This could be what education in the future looks like. If we get a chance to try it, we may find out that it works well, or not. Hopefully Crosstown gets the grant and we will find out.
@SS - I agree. It is baffling. Somebody needs to take some night school classes.
What a lousy and baffling response from the SCS spokesperson! Nothing unusual about an organization not commenting on the specifics of a lawsuit or allegation of illegal misdeeds. But why specifically single out the Office of Civil Rights in the response? Makes it sound as if the Office of Civil Rights makes so many inquiries that SCS needs to have a special policy for questions about all those inquiries. If I were a newspaper reporter, that odd response would prompt me to consider filing a public records request to see all those inquiries! Also, from a PR perspective, even if your organization isn’t ready to respond to specifics about allegations of wrongdoing, it’s usually wise to augment your non-response to those specifics with a little righteous-sounding spin about how much the organization values blah, blah, blah and strives to blah, blah, blah. That’s PR 101! So, if nothing else, SCS is guilty of having a supremely incompetent PR staff.
You're right on the money again. As a working class white American, I feel abandoned by Democrats who long ago embraced identity politics over class. They have tried to give the status quo a more attractive tint.
Hillary is one of the diverse faces of this.
Your history class must have been taught by a coach. Reagan swung open the doors for immigration in numbers Democrats can only dream of.
