Williams ……… “Stand for something, kneel for nothing” …… Only the inner-city black youth can stop the killings of young blacks by police ….. Acting the fool, whether it be not obeying a police officer or taking a knee during the National Anthem will not cure what ails you.

Your Savior did nothing during his 8 years of dividing, see if you can man up and do something that is right instead of just your usual stirring of the pot of no good. Period.

The world will be a better place when your generation passes.

Mark Holmes

Such a lovely thought. And yours will be better?


Another $500 K down the tubes just to review the plan.

Plans need to be reviewed. 500K is a lot of money to you, but not to a $1B project.

“JIt remains to be seen whether we can meet the needs of our black students and residents and build a new arena.”. Williams summed it up with that statement. Non black residents and students seem to be just baggage according to Williams in that racially biased statement. I’m thinking this baggage is creating the majority of revenue for the city.
