The Best Mayor South Buffalo Ever Had

There are 6 comments on the Art Voice story from Aug 8, 2012, titled The Best Mayor South Buffalo Ever Had. In it, Art Voice reports that:

Byron Brown's hiring practices underscore alliances with white conservatives, inaction on issues of particular importance to Buffalo's black community Byron Brown's track record of hiring African-American administrators-he doesn't, for the most part-is surprising until you put it in a larger context.

Brown is playing nice with the white political power because he wants statewide office some day. They will not support him. Brown should tell those South Buffalo types to pack sand and move out to Hamburg if they don't like it.

The whites had their chance to run the city and they ran it into the ground

The term "lack of diversity" in this context is supposed to show that black people have intentionally kept out of certain upper-level positions. As usual, this comes without substantiating proof and is just another opinion. Is it because there are no qualified black people?

The other end of the spectrum is the school board where the position has to be filled by a black person, no matter how under-qualified they may be for the job. Having a PhD and 20 years experience as an administrator can also prove that you are the absolute worst candidate for the job instead of the best. Those intricacies never enter into the equation because being black is more important to the board than being good and having a vision.

If the mayor is looking to advance his career beyond the city limits of Buffalo, appointing unqualified Negroes to all vacant positions because they are black will not work for him. He has to do what is good for the city.
