I am proud that these folks are standing up for America. I am tired of these Hispanics thinking that they can have all social service handed over to them. Their homes are dirty and nasty, People you are in the USA NOT Mexico. I drive by "the Hispanic section" on my way to work and its in a nice clean neighborhood, but they Hispanics homes has litter and trash around it. I am tired of going to a grocery store to find a Hispanic woman and her 4 kids walking down the grocery isle and one of the children has a package of cookies open and they are eating the cookies. Then when the Hispanic woman checks out, she does not even pay for the cookies (even though she is receiving food stamps). I am also tired of the black women having 5 kids from 5 different dads. They receive welfare and they are spending the money they get to receive hair weaves and their nails done. Is that money suppose to be used for take care of their illegitimate kids. I work a full time job, pay my taxes and my hard earned money is going toward this? Thank you for that rally, now maybe people will wake up and see the truth.
Torn between the building being bought for a live and work community to be built and keeping the history. I agree with the other comments, as I would have loved to have taken a tour. This should have been turned into a museum with offices above instead of sold. The pictures are so fascinating. I live close by and am sad to learn I missed the auction last year.
I would drive from Daytona Beach to be able to tour this great old building
Atlanta's a major trafficking hub for the Mexican drug cartels so whether we like it or not, this issue affects ALL of us!!
The federal marijuana prohibition costs taxpayers $40 billion a year, generates 800,000 unnecessary arrests every year, diverts $10 billion a year to the Mexican drug cartels, has caused the death of more than 35,000 people in Mexico in just the last four years, and lures drug dealers into our neighborhoods selling their stinking weed to our children. And worst of all, it doesn't even stop kids from smoking marijuana!
We need legal adult marijuana sales in supermarkets, gas stations and pharmacies for exactly the same reason that we need legal alcohol and tobacco sales - to keep unscrupulous black-market criminals out of our neighborhoods and away from our children. Marijuana should be legal to sell to adults everywhere that alcohol and tobacco are sold.
Ahh, but there WAS profanity. At the end of the HIGH LIFT trucks run, as he limped off the dirt his music was playing and G-D, M-Fers was played over the sound system. I filed my complaint to the GA Dome this morning, and was told that there had been many complaints for the same thing. Certainly it was accidental, but.... it happened.
These are great pictures, but I dont understand why Creative Loafing had no other coverage of this incredible event. 7,000 people in the streets of Atlanta is news! People coming out of the shadows because things in Atlanta and Georgia have become as unbearable as in Arizona is important news that CL readers deserve to know. This march was not just a protest against SB1070, but in favor of reform, against Gwinnett and Cobb county's 287g agreements, and for dignity here in this state! Please, CL, this is an issue you should be doing a much stronger job of reporting on!
If they decide to sell off (or better yet give away) anything, please contact me!
These photos and corresponding captions were amazing! I enjoyed viewing and reading about the history that is being thrown away in this building. I also would pay money to take a tour and take some of those old yet antique like chairs and create them into my own. The pictures told a story and almost brought me to tears because it was so exciting, being informed of what that building consisted of. Great job Joeoff and Scott!
Please, please, please let us all know if and how we can take a tour of this fantastic dyno; I'd be first in line to pay. I enjoyed the article, but would have even more if it included what recycling efforts the city is taking while clearing out City Hall East .
I'd pay money to walk for ten minutes into the maintenance shop with all of the old tools and wooden drawers. Fascinating!!!
Great photos. It's so like a museum, they should do tours of the building.

What cultures were represented? It sounds fun...I can't wait to return to Atlanta....You never know what you have until you leave out of anger and paranoia and wind up in a cow-punch town whose idea of cultural diversity is just that, an idea.....
Photos don't show up?
eyedrum bathroom has its own blog,
tales from the eyedrum toilet...!
Great pictures and great show!
JFT we really like your work.
These pictures are a yawn.... comments here are reactions to the KKK, not the pictures, which do little to change or enhance our understanding. Where's your in-your-face smartass cheapshot attitude? Kinda intimidated? Over the head crowd shots, middle distance podium shots, Klansmen neatly contained in crime-scene tape, you the journalist and us the viewer on the other side.....
Ever seen Gene Smith's KKK story? This don't really get it, do it?
The clown in gold needs to iron that robe---hasn't he heard of Downy Wrinkle Releaser?
Maybe it's time for a new song from Gen. Larry Platt?
"Looking like a fool with those wrinkles in your gown.
Harry Potter hat turned sideways, wrinkles in your robe
Call yourself a cool cat lookin like a fool
KKK Podium downtown with those wrinkles in yo gown?"
