Some of you have made some really racist comments. Some of your comments sound like "Wow, there is NO WAY a white person would EVER commit a crime." While I agree that it is a lot of thugs committing these crimes, I would suggest that you don't just focus on thugs. In light of what's been happening in the news lately, you best keep your eyes on these wild-eyed, crazy looking white boys, too, who are subject to shoot up you and your whole family while you are standing there trying to determine if a thug is getting ready to rob you or not. So, my point is this. All races commit vicious crimes. Stop trying to make it seem like the white race is so chaste and never do anything wrong.
Good, patriotdad!! Move!! It is white people like you who have caused all of this to happen! If you had not shown black folk so much HATRED in the first place, then more blacks would have crossed over and voted another way and the elected officials would be a nice mixture of both races or all the incumbents would have gotten voted back in. But your racist attitude caused a lot of blacks to vote strictly for blacks to prove a point to the racist whites like you. Your comments are laced with hatred. I feel sorry for you. You are a good ol boy who has had the rug snatched out from under you and you do not know what to do. Fear is a bugga bear!!! You are scared!! Yes, move!!! And in a couple of years where ever you move to, guess what, you will be dealing with this, too. The black race is growing and growing and black folk don't need no invitro to create offspring. Get over it!!! If you have kids, one of them will probably bring home a black kid one day as a friend. Get over it!! Have you ever tried to get to know any black people? Yes, there are thugs out there in the black race and I can't stand them either. But there are a lot of upstanding blacks, too, but the media does not show that. You act like your race is pure and perfect! It ain't! Get over it!!! Do you honestly think you can put your house up for sale on Monday and move on Tuesday? You might be sitting here in this county for the next year. Get over it! Get a life. Go to church tomorrow and see if you can remove some of that hatred, please!!!!
Now, let's pray that crime does not go up. Look at DeKalb, Clayton and Fulton. They are all 3 riddled with crime. Black folk are in charge in all 3 counties but the crime is out of control!!! I don't care who is in charge as long as the crime is kept at bay but let's face it, the proof is in the pudding! Now, let's see what Eric can do these next 4 years or if we will find ourselves in a mess like DeKalb. I am sorry to be cynical but we need to stop looking at skin color and vote for the BEST candidate and Jeff has proven himself to be successful. It ain't NO CRIME in my neighorbood and I like it that way!!!! Crime here is NOTHING like the other 3 counties. So, if anybody can explain all of this to me, please raise your hand.
I am inclined to agree with ctownslimm because Dan has done an excellent job as Tax Commissioner. He has done a lot of updating in his department so how can someone improve on that with NO experience. Yes, RJ blindly received those votes based on his skin color and there will probably be no improvements in that dept for the next 4 years because what can he do? Or he will attempt to make changes but because of his lack of experience, it will be probably be a lot of errors. Not everybody has a smart phone for the latest apps. So, he will collect that nice check and ride on Dan's coat tail for the next 4 years and that ain't right.
Best wishes in your endeavors but I doubt your house will sell that quick. While it is on the market, you best keep an eye on it, if it is vacant. If you decide to rent it out, please make sure you screen your tenants because they can get in there and not pay rent and it will be h*ll trying to get them out. Lastly, I hope you are not trying to move to the north side of Atlanta on a "Conyers" salary because you might not be accepted in their upscale world. Be mindful, those thugs do ride the train and produce a lot of crime at Lenox Mall and the surrounding areas.
I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU!!! Unfortunately, we cannot move because our child has several more years in school. We will have to just stick around and fight for what is NOT right and pray. If; however, crime starts growing and becomes as bad as DeKalb or Clayton with bad schools,too, we will have a "For Sale" sign in the front lawn before you can say lickity split!!!
Every culture has those differences...theft, murder, robbery, scamming, gangs and let us not forget....child molestation, meth sellers, serial killers, rapists, etc. You will find this mess in every race...White, Black, Hispanic, etc.
That is absolutely not true. Now, are there some blacks in this county who hate whites? Yes! Are there some whites in this county who hate blacks? Yes! But you CANNOT say that blacks hate whites. My subdivision is filled with whites and I speak or throw up my hand to all of them when I walk through my neighborhood. So, that is really ridiculous to make such a comment and offensive unless you know every black person in Rockdale and you don't!
Every person who is in a position of power, hire their buddies for jobs. They want people surrounded by them who they feel they can trust. Eddie Long has all his buddies in top positions at his church. I am sure Oden does the same thing. So, Jeff is no different than the rest. He surrounds himself with people he can trust. If Jason Hill was elected, a lot of Oden's staff would have been replaced with Jason's people. So, let that go.
I don't think anyone is putting down Eric. He seems like a really nice guy. I just think they are saying between him and Jeff, Jeff is the better candidate for the job since he has years of experience and has been doing a great job thus far. Look at crime in DeKalb, Clayton, and Fulton and look at who is in charge in those 3 counties. A lot of people feel that since Eric is black, if he is elected, the same high crime will come here in Rockdale. No offense to Mr. Levett but I voted for the candidate who I felt had the experience and has been doing a good job for the county and keeping crime at bay. Therefore, I voted for Jeff. Do you want to live in DeKalb, Clayton or Fulton with all that crime? The small portions of DeKalb that are nice, one may not can afford to live there such as Dunwoody or the Northlake area. So, that leaves the rest of the county (DeKalb) which is VERY high in crime. You live here in Rockdale for a reason. If you did not like Rockdale and the low crime, you would probably be in one of those counties that I just mentioned. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I have nothing against Eric as a person but at the forums he just did not seem like he had a lot of experience and I think he admitted that. He didn't have strong responses to the questions. We cannot get caught up in skin color when it comes to candidates. We must look at the candidates' experience and their proven record of success and give them our vote. If they do a re-count and Eric is elected, I pray that crime does not go up.
