A metropolitan area of six million Walking Dead paralyzed, an act of mother nature powerfully acting as a metaphor to highlight the absurdity of a people vacating a city (in every possible direction) for the momentary safety of a suburb.
|No, white people trying to raise families in safe white communities surrounding metro Atlanta (where black dysfunction has rendered the city unlivable) causes the daily gridlock. The snow just accentuated the problem for the nation to see...|
A city where the high concentration of black people in the downtown area (Fulton County), as well in large parts of DeKalb County, have completely eroded commercial and residential property value. The school system, wherever blacks go (looking at you Clayton County), quickly regresses to the black mean, sending white parents scurrying for another county where a few years of refuge can be found. But the undertow of blackness will follow, consuming everything in its path (looking at you Fayette and Cobb County).
Even the Atlanta Braves left Fulton County, the crime and decay of an almost entirely black area surrounding Turner Field a major detriment to those white fans hoping to watch the boys of summer for a few peaceful hours; before they must venture back into their metal coffins and spend more hours of wasted productivity on I-85, I-75, I-20, GA-400, or I-285.
To raise children in a majority black area is an unspoken form of child endangerment, though no state agency will work to protect you and your family (in actuality, the state works to relocate black people, via Section 8 Housing Vouchers, to your peaceful white areas).
No, we didn't lose Atlanta when 2 inches of snow blanketed; we lost in Atlanta when white people decided they could escape the racial reality of black dysfunction by moving to Forsyth, Gwinnett, Newton, Douglas, Fayette, and Coweta County (once, it was Clayton County, but the black undertow from Fulton seeped into Jonesboro, Mt. Zion, and Riverdale, rendering this area completely uninhabitable). [The Day We Lost Atlanta: How 2 lousy inches of snow paralyzed a metro area of 6 million, Politico, 1-29-14]
Potassium iodide can protect you from radioactive poisoning; nothing can save your residential or commercial property value from the black undertow (empty, shuttered buildings - once full with shoppers - are a reminder of the utter lie of black purchasing power).
The good people at Salon decided white people were to blame. Since we can't critique the source of black dysfunction, crime, and misery found in Atlanta (that whites would rather commute an hour each way - everyday - to avoid), let's just blame white people. [What Does Racism Have to Do With Gridlock?: In Atlanta Everything, Salon, 1-31-14]:
Race. White people can run away from the problems caused by the black race in Atlanta, but they can't run away from their own shadow.
Wherever white people went in the metro Atlanta, prosperous communities, neighborhoods, and cities followed them; when black people came (Clayton, DeKalb, and now Fayette County, as well as large parts of Cobb) those same communities, neighborhoods, and cities reverted decayed quickly to resemble the area surrounding the soon-to-be abandoned Turner Field.
The metro Atlanta area has no natural boundaries, meaning white people can continue escaping in every direction, decamping one city for another just down the expressway.
But the undertow will follow.
