Being a wife of a baseball fan AND business man, we discuss this and I just can't shake it from my head.
The Florida Marlins are seeking to build a new stadium WITH TAX DOLLARS and the vote came down to one black woman on the council. She told the Marlins that she will vote in favor of the stadium if they support the black community and black businesses.
What are your thoughts? Should this woman be fired? Is this extortion and racist too? Here's a story on it.

Racism is racism is racism...whether it comes from a black person or a white person it's WRONG! This is the reason we have so many race problems. A backlash is now building against this behavior. I think she should apologize and be investigated to see if this a common practice for her.

I'm not surprised. Reverse racism and almost extortion, or bribery? Is that pay to play for her vote? Sounds like more looking into her background and affiliations needs to be done, she was callus enough to do this outright, she's been doing it for a long time and getting away with it. Reverse racism is of course, the norm now anyway.
