Wow, Chattanooga is really growing up! Now we have all the same problems that big, 'classy' cities like Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles have.
Maybe Chuck should stay the f*** out of Chattanooga if he doesnt like ALL of Chattanooga...
As an African American I am appalled at what I see here. The racial overtone of the comments do not bother me, I am above all that. I went to school and got an education despite a poor attitude from my friends and family. I got a job and earned money, because I wanted more out of life than a prison cell. I experienced racism first hand and instead of complaining about it I chose to show that I did not fit the stereotype. I put myself through college and THEN got married and had kids. I took control of my life because of what I wanted for myself and my family and would not settle for what everyone else wanted my life for. I live in a mixed neighborhood-and we all get along. When my neighbors need help, I am there for them; and them for me. I do not fear or loath the Police, I respect them for their bravery and perseverance. I find it sad that my 'people' choose to rely on everyone to do things for them instead of for themselves. Equality is not something to be won, it has to be earned. Life is unfair for everyone but your attitude can somewhat level the playing field.
