I have used both ATT and Verizon in the last 9 months, and have been a mobile phone user for 15 years. I have to say that ATT has the worst service in Chattanooga, I live in North Chatt and every day from 10-2 it was always a toss up on whether my calls would be dropped while workign from home. I have to say I am glad I have gone back to Verizon and I have the iphone and I have to say so what I can't talk and surf at the same time right now, atleast I can make and recieve calls!
Hotdog you and everyone has the right to post, but throwing out racists comments isn't helping is it? You are tyring to bait a racists convsation are you not? Tell me this what solutions do you have to try and stop the shootings and the gangs violence? I feel sorry for you for and your loss of your son, but playing the name game back and forth with others is not helping anything just creates more animosity. We need to lead by example and playing the name game isn't help, the key word is tolerance. I do not have the answers, but I want to help and I want all this crap and yes I said crap(would use other words, but it wouldn't be posted) to stop violence solves nothing!!!!!! Neither does name calling!
hotdog I thnk it is great you have 3 businesses! No one is dogging you out for that. Please get over trying to defend yourself there are some on here that want to get down to discussing solutions and I do not see how you have three business and multiple certs helps. Or maybe you could go open up a business / mentor and employ these so called gang memebers and teach them to be a contributor to society instead of taker.
Antilimit I want you to know that you are someone that the community needs, no more black, white, purple, blue, or green community, just simply community. I fully apprecitate a black man wanting to try and step up and directly address the issues facing the community as a whole. I am a white man and I want to say thanks for being a black man and trying to address the black community, becasue if I do then I am immediately labeled as a racists. Personnally I am frustrated with lots of the points you bring to light on the differences of the white community and black community, I just want us to all come together as a community, who cares black or white. I am upset with the mayor and the police chief with their response and the so called signs who are they kidding? On one hand I wish Mr Talk Radio himself Andre McGary would try and step up as this could help his political career that he so dearly holds. If he truly wants to be a leader (you notice that I didn't say black leader) he should try and help bring solutions to the table. I think he has the greatest platform as he is on the radio ever weekday, and he spent his entire show yesterday screaming about what the mayor will do or won't do why not spend the time debating solutions, nope he waited until the last 10 minutes of his show. I live on the NorthShore and visit Fraiser and Coolidge park multiple times a week and walk around during the night and I have to say I am little dispeleased while walking across the bridge on a Saturday night and I hear a young kid and his buddies glamourizing they have guns and want to shoot someone, it kills me to hear this, where has the society gone. My question is what can be done, I understand everyone wants to scream the parents, the issue I see is these kids parents are absence for many issues(I do not wnat to debate this) I just want to help these kids. The one point I always say when others int he community discuss this entire gang thing in Chattanooga, do they not understand that they are commiting Genocide, black on black crime. On last quick note that I see from a black and white community thing you are right white folks will stand up and not tolerate the issues and demand things to change, as for the black community it seems as though it is glamourized to be thug/gang member, why is that? Again I really want to get rid of the black / white community thing, we are all citzens of Chattanooga!
