Young Fuol: Bing’s Bus Cuts Hurt the Ordinary Folk

Filed under: Detroit, Economy, Government, Life, Politics — cynicalsynapse @ 7:51 pm

Detroit rapper Young Fuol opposes Dave Bing’s plan to cut bus service. Detroit’s Mayor proposed eliminating Sunday buses and other DDOT service reductions.

In addressing Detroit’s budget woes, Mayor Bing has taken a new tack. Rather than threaten to cut police and fire, like most politicians, he’s holding ordinary citizens hostage. Detroit already has unemployment blowing past 28.9% , but if there’s no Sunday bus service, hundreds and even thousands more won’t be able to get to work. Think they’ll keep their jobs? Like Young Fuol says:

How could [Bing] lay off city workers like 211 then tell us he’s stopping buses on weekdays at 7?

There’s a lot more people who are gonna lose there job when it’s already hard as hell to get that job. I hate it.

What doesn’t make sense, though, is how Young Fuol apparently thinks convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick was better for Detroit. Whether you agree with Bing or not, he obviously realizes how much financial trouble the city is truly in. That’s a reality Kwame totally ignored; in fact, he added to it.

  1. I’m with you on this one for sure. Bing is hardly Detroit’s salvation, but there is no way in hell Kilpatrick was better for this city. Absolutely no way. And I used to be a Kilpatrick supporter. Now if you want to talk about the man’s potential? Sure. Mountains of it. Brilliant brother in many ways.

    But what good is all that potential now? Kwame screwed us without a second thought. The city he said he loved so much, he twisted the screw. That’s because Kwame doesn’t know the difference between f— and love. To him they’re one and the same.
