What is up with the gang drawings on the wall in the Ridge Cut coming into town?
It appears to be something that took a long time to draw and is rather ornate. It is too bad that the people that drew those couldn’t put that talent to better use.
Be that as it may, I don’t think that gang drawings are what we want our visitors to this beautiful city to see right before they enter the city. Why has there been no effort to have them removed?

Careful Terry, that sounds racist to me.

Thank you Mr. Keiser for pointing out the need to improve our entrance way into our city. We all should call 311 Call Center. Mr. Burns your reply sounds like one of ‘those Jurors.’ As a precaution, I would not pay too much attention to the ‘gang/artistic drawings’ in the Ridge-cut, you could run into Black Rain and spin out of control! Oops, is Black Rain a racist term Mr. Burns? By the way, I am an educated black female and, am very disgusted at the flippant attitude of others when it comes to race. By the way, I did not take racial offense to Mr. Keiser’s concern, only Mr. Burns inserting race into the matter. Enough already with poking the racial tension in this world and this city.

Mrs. Stanley-Cash, I am an educated white male. Not sure why that makes a difference, just following your lead. Anyway, the flippant attitudes you speak of are not toward race, they are toward the overused/misused cries of racism. Case in point: You said you did not take "racial offense" to Mr. Keiser's concern, but you did to Mr. Burns' comment. You take offense to it, fine. But racial offense? You need to become better-educated on that term. There was nothing racially offensive with what he said; he was poking fun at people who cry racism over every little thing. You took the bait, hook, line, and sinker.
