Aug 18, 2013 Full story: The Columbus Dispatch 92

Mayor Michael B. Coleman stood disheartened last month as he stared out at graduating classes of police officers and firefighters, seeing that nearly all were white men.

I bet he could drive a bus, couldn't he?
Background checks and urine test are holding up the bus drivers. Nobody wants to be sober when dealing with mean, hungry, rowdy, urban youth in the morning and after school.

One of the same problems with his demanding changes to police and firefighters hiring policies, add passing a test and a background check. Coleman is a failure, he has failed to control crime and support family life-style. He is an elected official that plays the poor me game, he is an enabler and this is what he stuck with. Lower standards or no hires!

Frankly, I would not want to work under the Urban Rodeo Clown!

American Exceptionalism is yet another diversity inspired euphemism for american-israeli victim cult supremacy.

You are a naked example of a diversity slug that never takes responsibility.

If you had any brains you might be dangerous.

Diversity is just an excuse for Black racism and discrimination against White Males who have carried the entire world on their broad shoulders, paying the majority of taxes, fighting in the majority of wars to save dark peoples and fulfilling the Great Commission to take the Gospel of Jesus to the entire world according to the commandant of Christ himself. Whites have done more than all other groups combined, especially those of dark complexions.

And what is the result of all this hard work?

Black rage and resentment, violence and Blacks acting Black.

This is America, not Africa.

You wish you could be half the person that Mike is! Mike has the city in the palm of his hand. He has a six figure income, a nice spacious condo, a sleek ride and a paid' armed' driver. Mike has a 'hot' lady friend and his face is known to 48 other mayors in America. Mike's not a 'Tom' and he's proud to be black!

He's bought economic opportunities to the city of Columbus. The business community loves Mike and so do most of the residents of this city. You are a clown and a HATEEEER!

Mike's on the top of his game. He has a future of being governor one day, but you Will continue to be a nobody with a no nothing attitude, and a mean hateful bigoted mindstate.

Now go dress yourself as a rodeo clown, stand on Broad & High with a sign saying : I love and support Mike C! He's the man!

Keep up the good works, Ollie. One day all you whites will receive your just rewards for showing great love, compassion, and brotherhood towards the' darkies' of the earth. Jesus himself...Barry Gibbs's identical twin, will line you all up as far as the eye can see, and personally pin a golden medal representing kindness, longsuffering, humbleness, charity, and love on the suit lapel of each white person who has ever lived for taking such good care of his wayward lost and confused knee-groe step-children.

He will say to you all that... "you've done your best, you've stolen everything from them and tried desperately to give some of it back in EBT and home heating assistance, but they were ungrateful and envious of your kindness and world dominance. Don't shed a tear, you've done well, my good and faithful servant" .

Most Republicans and many Democrats laughed at the inference that a tall skinny knee-groe senator with a funny African name, would one day be elected TWICE the President of these United States! So you just keep on laughing (from insanity) when Mike addresses the State as governor.

laughing ever harder now.

race was not even considered by me, just job performance.

If Ohio elects a city mayor who earned a grade of C- graded on the curve over his term, then Ohio deserves to expect the entire state look like Detroit.

Only because Columbus has many corporate HQ's and employees to steal 2% of their income from, can Coleman fund his programs. Is it any wonder why business are moving and builds outside Coleman's henchmen stealing money from them?

can you say Bob Evans for example.

Obama and Coleman both rely on others to earn money, so they can spend it. They both are clueless how to spend it. They both spend plenty, but the people are stupider today than when they were elected.

Ok, Frank. The naysayers said that about a community organizer who would never step foot outside of south side Chicago. Those same naysayers are bitchin now when he puts his feet on a desktop in a Martha Vineyard hotel suite.

Your boy Barry lost 72 of 88 Ohio counties last fall. That's why your boy Mikey can't win. He'd lose at least 80 counties.

Name the economic opportunities? I don't care how much he makes off of the people of Columbus, that is their problem. If you approve of crime and poverty, more power to you! Coleman is a clown and a loser and so are the people of Columbus, just not bright enough to realize it!

Have you heard of fraud and low-information voters?

It is not about his race, it is about his ability to do a job he is not qualified to do. It is about his administration of liberal clowns who are destroying the United States. Tell the UPS employees whose families are losing their insurance coverage. Tell all of the people who cannot find a full-time job. Crime is soaring. Costs are soaring. Debt is soaring. No new companies and the loss of old ones.

How could any person in their right mind be pleased with Obama?

Coleman will never be elected to destroy any place but Columbus!

Tisk, tisk, tisk...ohh how uninformed you are about the Heart of It All...The Buckeye City. And you are backwards when speaking about crime, our debt, and new businesses starting. Everyone I know have a job who wants one. They all have cars, trucks...luxury cars and suv's I will admit. They all have homes and small businesses.

Maybe it's your mayor who's not doing his job. Mike's doing an outstanding job.

Those 80 counties that vote 98% Republican are on the same economic shape that they've been for the last 35years. There is no economic improvement in those rural counties besides a stray Wal-Mart store here and there.

Total failure for growth in those Rethuglican. strongholds.

You need to get out of the ghetto more. Those areas are benefiting from White Flight, which has infused those areas with intellectual capital, money and energy and left the inner city to Black mismanagement and corruption, just like Detroit, just like Darfur, Haiti, Harlem, Somalia, Uganda and all other failed Black monstrosities.

Tell the people who worked at General Motors and City Center, I am sure they will agree with you.
