I don't buy the premise of the article. The author is blaming dollar stores for the closure of supermarkets in low income areas. I have been dealing with this for decades in my community work, and that is simply not the case. Supermarkets started leaving years ago, and for a whole there were few to no stores left in those areas. The dollar stores eventually saw the void and found a way to make a profit serving those communities.

City and community leadership have been trying for decades to get supermarkets to locate to underserved areas, with no success. Even when they offered incentive packages, the dollar stores were the only ones to take the deal. In Greensboro, we had to offer Dollar General a handsome deal to open a store on Phillips Ave. We had to sweeten the pot  to get a Family Dollar on MLK.  Some folks complained about the opening of those stores, but it was a dollar store or no store. All we could do was to make sure those stores stocked grocery items to serve people who did not have transportation.

Trump's supporters don't think so. His supporters remain solidly strong.

TRUMP'S BASE CONTINUES TO SHRINK.  WHAT IS THE MOST CURRENT TRUMP APPROVAL?  I KNOW.  FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF.  :lol:

Maybe he can get the Spartans to the top half of the conference.

We shall see. We've had 4 straight seasons of 4-7 final records,,,,,,,,, :shrug:

General Discussion Forum / Re: MARTA train expansion in Atlanta
« Last post by Capler on Yesterday at 01:46:31 PM »
It's very difficult to get residents of adjacent areas buy into such a project because in their minds, it represents "an Atlanta thing" they would rather continue living on the outskirts and leach off of Atlanta taxpayers.  :nod:


Capler, the issue was 30 years ago, white folks in the suburbs did not want YO CUZZINS bringing all of that Blackness out to the suburbs via MARTA. Thats why they were so deadset against it. 

Ironically, the hood is NOW IN the burbs and Atlanta is occupied by many young white couples [from other states] in addition to other ethnicities in the cities.

Those same white folks in the burbs moved further and further out of the metro area.  It was ok so long as it only benefitted them...and their help who had to rely on it.


The more I hear about Atlanta, it seems like the white folk surrounding the city are very racist. It's not like that in Charlotte, at least not yet. Charlotte as a city will probably never become a 'black mecca', like Atlanta. White folk can't escape Charlotte. When they move out and try to leach off of the city, the city reaches out and puts them right back in. The problem now is the fact that Charlotte has  gobbled up most of the county land, and will have trouble expanding beyond the those limits.
