Extremely Disappointing And Highly Disturbing - The Criminal Indictment Of Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon

I just don't get why some of our black leadership can't get out of their own way. This kind of stuff isn't worth your career or your reputation. And if you are going to be a crook, be a good one. Do some Blagojevich type graft, not this Kwame "I Wuz Da Mayor" Kilpatrick ticky-tacky crap.

And I'm sorry, as a black woman politician, Dixon has got to do better. Black women are really just starting to get in the game and here she is getting caught doing dumb, unnecessary, and pointless crap. She will likely survive this mess, but she will have a mark on her record and reputation.

When folks wonder why there are no black senators. Here's an example why. Politics is a game of moving up the ladder. If you get stuck at mayor because you chose to be a low-level political hustler, you struggle to move on to higher office. It's that simple folks.

I was disappointed also. I know you're innocent until proven guilty but this is the worst.

The charges that she was indicted on are like a female version of Kwame Kilpatrick.

Birmingham, AL mayor, Larry Langford, also black has been indicted of 101 counts against him.

Why are our politicians sold out for a little money, bling and clothes, while those who pay to play reap the biggest rewards?

The bigger shame in any story like this is usually the indicted black politicians represent some of the most needy cities and districts. They don't put the people first and yet the same people will still support them every time. Black politicians take advantage of our loyalty.
