In today’s DDN we’re back to talking about race relations- and failed school levies.
There was one quote from David Bohardt that is worth a billion bucks- and one that I’ve been saying for a long time: we have the puppets out front- and the puppeteers in the back room setting out the plans- here is Bohardt’s quote
Dayton needs equivalent of a 365-day-a-year peace bridge
A key step for the city would be to begin an honest discussion of race and politics, Bohardt said.
“There are still two political discussions going on in this town,” he said. “There is the politically correct one where everyone says the right things about collaboration and diversity. And then there is the private agenda discussions, which are divisive, ill-informed and often bigoted.”
The private agenda decisions are often just that- a private agenda from the people who have been looting and pillaging our city. The ones who get the big contracts, build landfills at will, buy key property before big plans are announced, get the tax breaks and live quite well on the backs of others.
If we could get the real decisions to be discussed in public- we wouldn’t be in this mess.
And- as one last thought- is the reason we’re building 2 rec centers instead of one- just one more indication that we can’t come together to play nice?
Still a black one and a white one- will we ever learn?
