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.----- Original Message ----- From: "Joe Plummer" <joeplummer@xxxxxxx>

What does this have to do with his question? He was asking if it would be ofa help if they got a foot in the door by starting getting the bus in themall on the weekend he said Saturday but I would think he would also includeSunday on the list unless the bus doesn't run on Sunday. I don't see whatthis has to do with race or slavery! Just my thoughts. Yes Saturday would bebetter than nothing.

No but thank you for asking.----- Original Message ----- From: daviska9 <mailto:daviska9@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>To: tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, January 26, 2010 8:07 PM Subject: [tabi] Re: Quick notice One other thought y'all. What if StarMetro provided into the mall service on Saturday only? Would that help?
