The Big Pull Out

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, Feb 16, 2014 at 12:35 PM

Dear Group who "opposes development that doesn't directly benefit the black community" in NE. You guys, the ones who shot down the Trader Joe's. Where the hell were you when the 7-11 went in a year ago? I guess pedaling crap to the young black community (King Elementry and Jefferson High) AND taking business away from long time black owned corner stores is just fine? What about the business owners of Vanport square who took a chance to open up shop under the premise that there would be a grocery store in that space eventually. What ARE these battles you are choosing? So confusing!
