Re: “Raising the bar

yep, Obviously there is some truth to what Jay ONE says. Any other time..the RIVER Market
seems to like having the attention..and I have been used..there a number of times...from
sponsorship from Ark Times, to Peabody..to Rev Room events....yet....suddenly...the BLACKS are coming downtown to the RIVERMARKET too much..that I got my Searchlight cancelled last night. It was sold out and very successful without but you could tell, some business owners in the RIVERMARKET seem to want to keep the RIVERMARKET with only a peppering of blacks..rather than have a "sold out and successful Black event in Rivermarket" I was sort of sickened by reading between the lines..what the excuses were. Well, we all just have to rise above and move on.
we still have black churches, black funeral homes and black clubs...but it looks like
1957 is starting to fade away..and the Blacks are coming downtown to the Rivermarket and I don't think anyone is going to stop it. Why should they? . The black clubs have a nicer dress of party goers and they spend more money..buying the highest price booze..rather than cheap beer and it seems like..they should have equal access to club real estate rental or purchase. We all need to work at being
more 2010 and less 1957.
