@12:31 You'd have to actually watch the show to know that. Brother, I don't believe I'da told that.

Wonder if those race-based grant decisions that the EDCKC is pronouncing would survive an equal protection challenge? Their pressers alone make a prima facie case of a decision to award a $5,000 check based on the color of the applicant (or maybe they didn’t even apply maybe EDCKC just throw the money at the “non profit” LOL)

My recollection is race-based Classifications must survive highest level of scrutiny. But maybe that piece of jurisprudence is systemic racism or something who even knows

those grants are a waste of money that will only benefit the connected and non-needy people who are getting the grants, and zero benefit to help ordinary eastsiders

10:19am is right, of course.
But when did ANY of the many many millions siphoned up on the east side ever get to anyone other than the usual suspect grifters, insiders, and hangers-on?
18th and Vine.
The Citadel Project
Houses on Tracy Avenue
The city-wide "Prospect Improvement" sales tax
All disappeared into thin air.
That's what passes for "leadership" in a community in which lots of hard-working regular folks could actually use some local investment and personal assistance.
Sad.

Trump and most conservatives do not hate south of the border brown folk. We simply want controlled legal immigration to the Country. In fact, I would prefer to see an expedited method for admission. In the case of biz sponsorship (and tax trail), legal marriage to a citizen, or (like Mexico does to immigrants) a certain largish amount of cash held in an American bank. You meet those requirements, you're here to contribute, not take. We do not need more people on the welfare rolls, that's what their own Countries socialist policies are for.
