Plight in common

Daily Photo Galleries

A French-government website warns French citizens visiting Pittsburgh to avoid Mt. Oliver, the Hill District, Homewood-Brushton and Hazelwood.

What do these areas have in common? They are victims of political pandering to gain votes and race hustlers making a living by preaching the mythical leveler of “social justice.”

If there is a solution to reverse the plight of these neighborhoods and their residents, it would take generations.

Unfortunately, a solution is not in sight, at least not one that doesn't involve hard, very hard, actions.
