Well, this show was supposed to be the glorious return of the Colorado Rapids Thugcast, previewing the 2015 season for the Burgundy Boys. Apparently that might not be happening, though. So... hey, let's talk about the MLS CBA battle between the players and the owners for a while as well! I'm sure Bulldog Ben and myself will find plenty to talk about, unless we've lost our touch or something. (Something tells me we probably haven't. You and I both know that the two of us can talk for hours.)
For all of its growth in recent years, Grand Rapids still has a long way to go to make itself more economically friendly for African-Americans. Of the 52 largest cities in America, Grand Rapids ranks 51st, beating out Milwaukee, which was ranks at the bottom.
Grand Rapids is home to about 40,000 African-Americans, who make up between 20 percent and 21 percent of the population, Robinson said the fact that the city has such a small population of African-Americans compared to other cities on the list might have led to the lower ranking. He also believes Grand Rapids received a low economic ranking, because of the city’s history of institutional racism, which eventually led to a system of hyper-segregation.
