Racial animus vs. transit issues? Come on D

The "War on Cars" is real but it's moreso a matter of "war on beliefs." Now maybe that is something that we can apply to our political system.

Obviously, we've had this discussion numerous times and nothing really changes. "ProTransit" types are going to be painted as anti-cars. "ProCar" types will be painted as anti-transit. Fact is, it's rare for either side to concede any responsibility for the toxic environment each helps to create.

It shouldn't be a shock that black people like the same things as white people, asian people, hispanics etc. Any thinking person knows this. The problem is that you have radicals on both sides of the debate who purposely fan flames and leave their respective side believing whatever horror story painted by the other. Those contributing to this come in all forms...even here at GGW.

But seriously, let's not " the new black" birtherism. No, transit and race are in now way synonymous.
