Another fact Einstein, the Northland area started it's downward spiral when they closed the Windsor Terrace government housing projects in the early 90's to rebuild it. They relocated all of the thugs to the area between Morse and 161, east of Karl Rd. You know the old saying a fox in the hen house, well that is what the government did. Put the criminals in a target rich enviroment!
Ok there TIRED, What was the President doing then? Where was Mr. Obama in the early 90's? Was he president then? You my friend are a nut job. You no nothing of the past so my guess is, that's the reason your past will be clouded. I didn't vote for the man. But then I am smart enough to pick the person and not the party. How many people in the northland area at that time shut their eyes to the problem? If a good man does nothing , he then becomes part of the problem. What did you do to fix this problem then?

DAWANN T. Jones - come on! That is an ebonic name if ever there was one! White trash and rednecks don't make up names like that for their spawn. Not being racist - it's a fact.

The are has really gone down hill. And as mentioned it does not only have to be black. The Mexicans are swamping up that way in large numbers. Just a few monthes back that was the are where Grandma shot and killed the guy who walked in her hotel room. The entire city went wow. But the whole time the area has been a three ring circus for close to 10 years. And it is creaping towards the Polaris way slowly but surely as well.
People keep running north but are running out of room to try to hide.

Yes, That area really fell fast. I blame Polaris being built destroying that whole area just like Tuttle did for Westland Mall. And Easton did for City Center...

...Columbus needs to stop this expansion outside of 270 and take care of the mature areas. The further out the "well off" moves then it becomes perception that anything inside of 270 is trash...
This is pretty accurate. Columbus does a poor job developing and zoning. It is like a necrotic tumor, in that it grows and grows and the inside dies as the outside continues to grow. Way too many areas that are the hotspots for a couple of years until a new one is built then all the higher end stores and restaurants pull out and the trash moves in.

Also, Columbus has an abundance of new build areas (for exapmple: Canal Winchester area off of Gender, north of route 33)that are destined to eventually deteriorate and become low income areas because the people who bought them in the early part of the last decade couldn't afford them when their variable rate mortgages went up and the economy went south. It is their own fault for over extendig themselves and buying more than they could/should afford. Columbus seems to be a never ending sea of vinyl sided box homes (M/I, Dominion, etc.) that are built on quarter acre lots with no trees.

(from Wiki)

White trash is an American English pejorative term referring to individual or groups of lower social class Caucasian people that the speaker considers to lack social status.

It is most frequently used as a slur to describe financially, economically or culturally disadvantaged southern white Americans. It may also be used self-referentially by white North Americans with higher socio-economic status to jokingly describe limitations they sense in their culture[citation needed] and may also be used as a within-group expression among disadvantaged white Americans to express solidarity.

At various points in the 20th and 19th centuries, the term was frequently prefixed by poor to form the unit "poor white trash." "White trash" should be differentiated from the term "redneck", as each has a unique historical etymology and context in modern usage.

....

But either white trash or rednecks would name their kid DAWANN ...is that suppose to be Dwayne?

I just though you should know their was a difference. I myself am a hillbilly and get get offended when I am called white trash or a redneck or group together like their is not a difference.

"And then there's the racial slurs against blacks. I don't remember race being mentioned in the article. There are lots of whites that live in that area - and Latinos, and..."

I guess based off of Mimi's amazing gift to guess race based off of name, I should assume she's a fat white chick who wears too much makeup like that off of the Drew Carey show?
Your assumption shows how truly ignorant you are. The world is a small place for you and for that I am sorry. It's sad to think your mind works in this way, It's even more upsetting to think that you will one day(If you haven't already) produce spawn who is as f'ed up in their stereotypical views of the world as you are.
I agree with Reader. Name or not, you can not know what race this guy that was shot, or anyone involved is. If I thought like you I'd assume that every story I hear of incest and fondling of their children is white, and that places like Hilliard are a feeding ground for prego teens and crack addicts..Oh...wait

Your basing it soley on your perception of what black people are, or name their children.

Look, we know it was a black guy, OK? It's obvious. The name and location give it away. That's not to say that there aren't a ton of idiot white people running around doing stupid crap like this. They just live in places like Franklinton or Lockbourne Avenue and they're named Bobby Lee or Rusty Joe.

That is so true. People always wonder the race of a criminal and the paper writes names like Dawann. They might of simply of writen N----R for a name instead. Names do tell a complete color of a criminal many times for people readind about a crime.

My name is not Mimi & interestingly enough, stereotypes are quite accurate. Especially the others you've mentioned.

Once again your ignorance abounds.

Didn't see your posting on the racial ramifications of Sunday's expose on the drug & crime problem that permeates a large portion of our state.

Why such silence? Parity is Paramount.

Mimi, your stupidity is confoundedly ...stupid!

As-Salaam Alaikum.

Dawann was a good kid. Kind, smart, respectful, and hard working. Worked with him at a financial services company in Dublin for several years. People cried when they passed his desk today or took a phone call from one of his clients. Regardless of where he chose to spend his Saturday night, he didn't deserve to be killed. Sometimes people are in the wrong place at the wrong time. The thought of that kid being a criminal is ridiculous.
