What has happened in black Atlanta politics and black people looking at black candidates not as they savior is that many black mayoral candidates and their cronies, once they got in office, became very snobbish and arrogant to the very persons that got them in office, primarily people who worked on their campaigns. Of course these people are from the neighborhoods and they would inform their neighbors of these events. The only people these black mayors favored and rewarded was those in their inner circle and those people who had businesses that got taxpayers monies through contracts. Nothing ever trickled down to the people of the city of Atlanta and to those who helped those mayors get elected. Many of them were as distant, nasty, and arrogant from the average black person as they perceived a white person would be. Today, many blacks see the same and see no difference if we have a black mayor or a white mayor. The results will evidently be the same. Infact, it may show these snobbish, class elitist, arrogant black politicians a lesson that they may not recover from.
THIS IS A VERY,VERY, VERY POOR CHOICE!!!!!! You guys have just lost your crediblity. Kasim must have "bought you out" by purchasing and placing adds in you paper. But "THE PEOPLE" who have not been bought out will decide come election day. I "pray" the your newspapers stay in the bin. THE PEOPLE OUT TO KNOW THAT "CREATIVE LOAFING" HAS BEEN BOUGHT OFF. We know you need the money, but not at the expense of this mayoral race and public, fair, journalism. YOU DID NOT DO YOU RESEARCH OF THE CANDIDATES ON THIS ONE. THIS GUY IS ANOTHER "BILL CAMPBELL" IN WAITING!! I am disappointed in you, CREATIVE LOAFING.
