Last night I watched a BET special about the uprising in Baltimore. The crowd seemed unified around one issue and that was anger. They were angry at the mayor, the police, the church, any organized anything. We listened to alot of frustrated people. What we did not hear was responsibility. What has the community done to find themselves in their current state? That question was never asked or answered. There were questions about funding for programs, but who is going to fund them? The same government that was being railed against is the same government that will fund any program within that community. It is ironic to be dependent with an attitude, but that is the reality of Charm City.
Baltimore a Dependent City with an Attitude
