White people find their niche in the inner city

I enjoyed your article about the county residents who come into the inner city to buy their drugs.

And Gregory Kane's viewpoint of the issues was most thought provoking as well as entertaining.

Who says the inner city has nothing the rich, white preppies want?

What I found particularly offensive was the smug attitude of the suburbanites.

They all came off like a bunch of whiny, spoiled brats. Blaming their drug habits on the inner city seems to be putting the cart before the horse.

The black kids are hardly driving out to Westminster to force innocent white people into using cocaine or heroin. The white customers sought the suppliers, not the other way round.

The main problem Baltimore seems to have is leeches like these white punks who contribute nothing to the city, but expect to use whatever services the city can provide, legal or illegal, and then slink back to their little racist enclaves and pretend to be better than "those people."

Perhaps it's time to turn the tables on these useless sponges.

Instead of giving them back their cars for a mere $120, seize the cars and sell them at auction, then use the money for drug treatment programs in the city.

At least that way, these good-for-nothings will be forced to give ,, back some of what they have taken from the residents of Baltimore.
