notes on government, sports and popular culture
"Someone needs to more securely affix Alston's racist-are-everywhere spewing cannon so that it fires only in a more constructive direction before he loses all credibility within this community."
As someone who has sat through hours of county commissioners' meetings, Skip Alston's "racism is everywhere spewing cannon" consistently has been a source of division on the board. His comments about the city staff should have been a surprise to no one. With that in mind, I have to wonder if Alston has ever had credibility among the greater Greensboro community.
Here's my next question: Was it not a conflict of interest to have a city-funded apartment complex managed by a county commissioner's private company?
As long as we're talking about race, here's another question: Would eyebrows not immediately been raised if, for example, Steve Arnold's company were hired to manage the Greensboro Coliseum?
