Williams buys home, talks about blackness
Now this article highlights a systemic problems in our community. Blackness being prostituted. If there is one thing I hate, it is people exploiting someone with false pretenses. Here you have a Mayor get elected because he appealed to the black community, then he ignores the plight of the community while in office, and then he moves back into the community as if nothing ever happened. Read the article and tell me if I am off my rocker.

Nov. 17, 2008, 12 a.m. -During his tenure as the two-term mayor of
Washington, D.C., Anthony A. “Tony” Williams made it clear he wasn’t all that
concerned about what his predominantly black constituency thought of him.
Even when some accused him of trying to push poor blacks out of the city
in a headlong effort to barge ahead with a business and economic
development plan, he didn’t flinch.
But when it came to picking a house this spring, nearly two years after
leaving office, Williams divulged to The Washington Post that he had been
listening to his critics’ whispers all along.
