The Racism Card is overplayed, you've worn it out, it means nothing and has no power.

Im sure that they consider the amount of possible commercial accounts per square mile as well, liquor stores and nail salons dont count.

wonder why they passed by buffalo could it be that most of buffalo is on public welfare and has too many people who don't pay for anything.there is no racism in buffalo just sound business practices.and the race card is all worn out

FIOS has huge investment requirments, a stellar credit rating is needed to justify the risk. Not many 300k+ homes are built in the city, for the same reason.

what large company in their right mind would want to come to buffalo.just look at all the crime the non working welfare queens have bestowed upon the city and then we have a corrupt government that has more city hall scandals then a movie.oh yes lets not forget the low intelligence of the population with a minority graduation rate of about 20 percent who could they hire to work for them.they have ruined everything in buffalo and now are doing the same to amherst and other burbs

Ronnie Reagan also gave amnesty to illegal aliens during his term in '86, this caused even MORE of them to come pouring over the border in hopes of another one.
