The blacks want their mayor in office. Their interests are better served with one of their own. Far too many black families in Youngstown are suffering for various reasons the most prominent of which is economic. Betras has drawn the battle lines and the black community is not going to back down. Like it or not they feel that Kitchen can better relate to their plight. They are not going to support one not of their choosing.

Forty years ago this week, National Guard tanks rumbled onto the streets of Youngstown to quell rioting fueled by rage over the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Angry loose-knit gangs of young people set buildings afire, turned over cars, fought and fired indiscriminately at law enforcers.
The man who killed the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was captured and jailed. The riots ended and life proceeded in a new direction.
Today far too many are out of work. The family unit has disintergrated. Drugs are plentiful. The prisons are filling up fast. A man of vision needs to arise and change this scenario.

D&L may have been obnoxious but at least they don't supply terrorists with explosives that killed and maimed in Boston as did Bruce Zoldan doing business as Phantom Fireworks.

I had met Trent Rapp who owned the DQ in Canfield and it was very evident that he was gay. The law didn't see it his way when he was arrested for soliciting minors.

Any journey starts with one step at a time. Many steps have now been taken. There is nothing sacred nor off limits.
