Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta.
Employing an 83 percent black workforce almost entirely subsidized by the white taxpayer.
Nearly 75 percent of the ridership is black, which is important to remember when you learn the Atlanta metro transit authority was forced to spend $1.1 million to install "urine detection devices" throughout the system...
Which is all important to remember when you learn the public transportation offered free rides on Labor Day and a certain racial demographic lived up to the numerous stereotypes they've developed over the years, ensuring white people avoid the very system their tax dollars subsidize. [Did MARTA freebie backfire? Fight video raises questions, AJC.com, 9-22-15]:
MARTA was trying to do the community a solid a few weeks ago when it offered free rides on Labor Day.
It was a gesture of thanks to loyal riders and — the agency hoped — a way to entice new passengers aboard. But apparently no good deed goes unpunished.
A video posted Sept. 15 on Youtube shows fight that broke out on a train packed with passengers on Labor Day. Some riders hooted and egged on two young men who circled each other warily, their chests literally bared after they flung their T-shirts aside. Other riders cowered in the back of the train and tried to steer clear of the melee.
It’s unclear what started the brawl. At one point it’s three fighters against one.
Several punches and kicks are landed on the unaided fighter who falls to the floor, but he quickly jumps back up. Some inaudible smack-talk resumes and then the video ends.
It appears no one was seriously injured. But this is exactly the sort of image MARTA’s trying to shed with its “Ride with Respect” campaign targeting obnoxious behavior and panhandling, and the introduction of its See & Say app for smartphones, which passengers are encouraged to use to report problems to MARTA police.
(Note, the app doesn’t work when the train is underground, as it appears to be in this video, because there is no Wi-Fi service in the tunnels. However, MARTA is working on an agreement that would bring free Wi-Fi to all tunnels and stations within the next few years).
We’re expecting an official response soon from MARTA to questions about whether the agency deems the free ride campaign a success, whether more crime was reported that day or whether the fight was an aberration.
But tell me, riders, was it a success in your eyes? Or did MARTA invite problems when it invited all passengers?Rosa Parks birthed the "Ride with Respect" campaign, by forever mandating white people are no longer capable of legislating away black dysfunction and keeping it from disrupting the civilization only white people could create and, as evidenced by now majority black Baltimore, Birmingham, Detroit, Memphis, Newark, Camden, and New Orleans, maintain: her defiance doomed not only public transportation - a once reliable mode of transportation now firmly tainted with the warranted image of black dysfunction and black criminality - but the cities bus lines and train lines serve.
Freedom, true freedom, is the ability to discriminate. Without this freedom, you are a slave to those who demand you tolerate every vice and criminal situation your experience on this earth would otherwise tell you to avoid.
But not just avoid... work to pass laws to stop them from ever occurring.
