"What Does Racism Have to Do With Gridlock? In Atlanta, everything." | Slate.com | 01/31/14 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it
This week’s weather fiasco in Atlanta, which stranded thousands of commuters on glassy-slick roads and gridlocked the entire metro region for the better part of 24 hours, was caused by a freak snowstorm, they say. And this is true, in the same way it’s true to say the Civil War...
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

"Snow Didn’t Paralyze Atlanta. Racism Did"

...... the top comment on the article nails the "race" story: Ben 12 hours ago - "I'm a white guy living in Cobb County, just north of Atlanta - and normally I don't like Slate's constant complaints of sexism and racism.  But living down here, and talking to both liberals and conservatives, there just is no question that the rail lines were kept out of Cobb in order to prevent black people from coming up here.  This is understood by all.  The author is absolutely correct on this point.  And we paid the price this last week."

"Wickham: John Lewis vs. Barack Obama" | USA Today | 12/30/13

"Wickham: John Lewis vs. Barack Obama" | USA Today | 12/30/13 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it

is is not a civil rights battle that Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., ever wanted to wage. But it's one he says he must fight – and win.


At issue is the White House's submission of a slate of six nominees for federal judgeships in Georgia – two to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit and four to district court judgeships in the state's Northern District. Among the nominees is an attorneywho defended Georgia's sweeping voter ID law, which many civil rights activists say is designed to suppress black voter turnout. Another is a former state representative who votedto keep the Confederate battle flag emblem on the Georgia state flag. And the only blackamong the six nominees is a Republican woman.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

Sorry President Obama! I'm with John Lewis on this one.  We can not let the GOP Right Wing turn back the clock on Civil and Voting Rights.
