What's worse? Poisoned landfills becoming parks or the residents shooting and pillaging until the place is unlivable?
It's a tossup, right now.

that's easy for you to say- you don't live there! and just like you no one else cares about the lives of these people- whether you like it or not that is exactly who they are PEOPLE ! the tossup is the space between your ears or the noodle between your legs!

There is more danger from all the lead flying through the air in that area than from a little lead in the ground. Duck and cover from the thug life.

Who cares, most of them are dead before they are 20 anyway. If not they are complete idiots and do something to get thrown in prision for life anyway. Leave it be.

Fact: The incinerators were built and operated directly in the midst of the black neighborhoods.

Fact: Many black people who lived within these neighborhoods with few options to live elsewhere are now ill, have died or will soon die as a result of the contamination.

Fact: I am only one of those people.

Fact: Many black people living in these communities were hard-working, devoted family oriented people (yes people) not thugs, gangbangers, hoodlums or whatever derogatory terms you could possibly imagine.

Fact: There were many black people within the Sistrunk Blvd boundary area who were and still are passionately involved in community affairs of the neighborhoods and worked diligently as teachers, doctors, lawyers, dentist, church leaders, blue collar workers and yes, some white collar workers as well, who invested time and effort in the viability and improvement of the neighborhoods.

Fact: The first time that I ever saw drugs or someone high on drugs was at Rogers Middle School back in the '70s which at the time was located in a white neighborhood that didn't have an incinerator... Hmmm...

if you didnt live there,you wouldn't know. You could smell the stench from the waste plant 24hrs a day, summer was always the worst.Almost everyone who used to live there has respitory problems. If you dont fight for your health, then you die because you didnt fight. Be deligent with your fight.

C'Mon Slantinel!

This area is deadly from toxins, so just admit it, and then, Scum Slantinel, pay your share to clean it up and compensate those afflicted. The Slantinel dumped there for years. C'Mon Slantinel, shame the devil and tell the truth for a change.
