Well, much of this, is because the Blind community is not together itself.
We in south Florida have the same problems with our City, and county
Governments regarding the same issues.  They see that we are not all
together, and they play us against one another, I,e, NFB, ACB.  What ever
they can use to play us against each other, they are using.  
And another thing, they know who votes, and who doesn't, so when you call
down there to the city hall, to bitch.  They are looking your name up, and
if you are not a registered voter, they are not even paying attention to you
as a person.  So lets make sure that when we are attending these meetings,
that we are first of all.  Registered to vote, and then lets find a way to
bring all of us Blind people in the state together, to face this issue.  It
sounds to me, as if they are using the same issue all around the state, to
cause division. 
I think that with large blind communities like in Tallahassee, it's time for
you guys to start using that to force changes, because Tallahassee is
clearly not going to change concerning the busses, and what they are saying,
is that the economy is bad, and they need to cut routs.  You guys need to
really stand up, because if you don't you will have only one bus going to
the mall, and that area.  They are just pushing, to see what they can get
away with. And if you guys let them get away with this, what will be next?

Well I am going to say this on list and then this will be all I will say on
the subject of the bus schedule and race and slavery on list. After this we
will have to continue it off list. I not saying the bus program is not going
somewhat backwards and I not saying they shouldn't go into the malls. Yes it
is sad that they are steam rolling over the blind community      on the bus
program. But this has no connection what so ever with slavery or racism at
all. Now this might have something to do with discrimination. That is a
total different thing than racism and slavery. Just more of my opinions.

Hello Joe and others interested in this tread:

It has everything to do with this historical fact. A department of our city 
government is telling us to do something that is not safe to do. That is 
walking through the parking lot to get to the mall. Now what would happen to

an African American who showed up on any other day of the week than Saturday

50 ears ago?  Do you think African Americans would be safe on their shopping

trip?

It would be going backwards in time to insist that African Americans do 
their shopping on Saturday afternoons.

If Star Metro is going into the Governor Square Mall now it certainly is a 
step backwards to take the bus service out of the mall.

African Americans have fought long and hard to get the right to shop on 
every day along with the rest of America. We blind along with the rest of 
the disabled community don't want special treatment. Do we?  We want that 
same chance like everyone else; as long as it is a safe chance.

Simply said I don't want to go backwards. I was kind of sort of in favor of 
giving up bus service through May apartment complex for longer night and 
Sunday service. Now this seems to be off the table and no service to the 
mall unless one walks.  We are going backwards here.  I am not against 
walking.

Tallahassee is not a walk able community, not yet.
