Yep, have to agree Mike the printer. There a big social issues rooted in the past but also shaped by what's going on and has been going on noticibly for the last decade or so around metro Atlanta. Indiscriminate and unproportional black crime committed by Black youths and a Black adolescents. Whether crimes against Ga-tech students, random home invasion, smash and grabs, oddles of shootings, gangs stuff (30 deep), Marta stuff (other gangs)...it is scary and uncomfortable when ones may be out and about at AS with Blacks with dreds, gold-teeth, loud music or just being loud. I am not white either, but that is not the point. It is uncomfortable to be around folks that one may attribute to any of the behavior of young Blacks (let agree to blame the media too). Some great property available right now (Twelve @ AS) but cannot really consider with the level of ignorance that frequents the area. Do agree also that we ALL must work to better our social issues on this. Atlanta feels "Boondocks" like at times, and although fun for a laugh, we are actually living through the nonsense. We all have vested interest as Atlantans and Americans.
