    This city has never been this racially divided as it has become quite suddenly, that I can recall in close to 6 decades. This was not neighborly. Most of the faction that won did not attend the city’s district meetings at all. The historical heart of our city has been sliced and diced, karate chopped. Wasted time, money. Citizens who got involved should have never bothered participating in this pre-planned already done deal. But hey! We now have our very own South Central. Let’s be all L.A. and keep those lines of demarcation coming. Chop, chop, chop away at that old stodgy Americana. Neighbors, neighborhoods and neighborly, be damned. Enjoy the win. It was ugly and mean spirited. And very much in line with how everyone gets their way these days: backhanded, back room, back stabbing.

        Why? To diffuse the lawsuit which Latino groups LULAC slash MALDEF filed because GG has had Vietnamese leaders along with Caucasians for well over 15 years, three on Council now, and they have had none. Whose fault is that? You don’t run, or vote, well, duh. Engaging your community, what a great idea! No community engagement = no seat on council. Very simple. Real simple.

          lou has spent his whole political career pandering to the Vietnamese community for one simple reason; They vote and ;latinos do not. The map put forth by kim nguyen creates a path for total viet control of the dais. He stayed behind the scenes to avoid flame wars by the latino community but basically he knows that viets vote and latinos do not so he has made it so viets will overwhelmingly control the dais in GG.

            You have no clue what took place in the process Paul. But glad to see you are willing to stoke racial strife against the Vietnamese. Does Joe Dunn approve of such action?
