Re: “Minority Report

There is no shock or surprise that the black community is facing its own struggle with quality of life. I think the guy from turtle creek who responed completely missed the point of the article. The geographic segregation of Pittsburgh is undisputed wheter or not you agree with theories of it's origins. If you are living in the Hill District and are trying to get a job to work your way through school, trying to send your kids to school, or have a quality home life similar to that of the "North Hills", you can not. Those few that are getting collge degrees, who are applying for jobs, are getting discriminated against with lower paying jobs, or even just not getting hired. It is a vicious cycle,they dont have money to reinvest into themselves, their families, or their communities. They cant ask their neighbors or parents for help because they are struggling as well. The problems of the black communities are diverse and entrenched. It would need massive individual and family initiatives along with some support from the city to help with crime, improve education, and increase home ownership. In addition all of Pittsbrugh's residents regardless of race or creed could benefit from some tolerance, some forward thinking, and an attitude of helping everyone in the city move forward.
