WHY WOULD A LOCAL TV STATION WANT TO HIRE WILL SOMMER A WHITE CITY PAPER GOSSIP COLUMNIST KNOWN FOR WRITING NEGATIVE ARTICLES ABOUT BLACK POLITICIANS AND ACTIVISTS IN WASHINGTON DC ?

Why would a local TV station want to hire Will Sommer a white Washington City Paper gossip columnist known for writing negative articles on Black politicians and activists in DC despite the fact that that the DC City Council is majority white and there are plenty of white activist and ANC Commissioners in DC that Sommer gives a pass?  Hey Will! Did you know that your alma matter Georgetown University once had a Black President? White journalist like Erik Wemple, Tom Sherwood and Mark Segraves have made a career cashing in and moving up the ladder in the racist White media for writing about and reporting on Black politicians and activist while giving whites a pass.

The Shaw East Central Civic Association Supports Mayor Bowser’s Hold On Shaw Development Projects Located AT 8th & O And 7th & Rhode Island Ave, NW

The developers and ANC 6-E Commission did a horrible job of community outreach to Black civic organizations, tenant associations and black activist in Shaw regarding the proposed development projects located at 8th & O and 7th & Rhode Island Ave, NW. ” The ECCA applauds Mayor Bower hold on these two projects. Our Ward 6 Council member Charles Allen never reached out to our civic association nor any other non- ANC Community Black leader in Shaw to discuss these projects. We know Alex Padro with his Shaw Main Streets are in the pockets of developers. Black Shaw has not had any friends or leadership on the council level since Jack Evans left our Shaw boundaries. Our ANC leadership reflects the ideas of some young white and 40ish new comers pushing Blacks out of Shaw and electing people of color to the commission that they can control and benefit with bars and small businesses. Mayor Bowser has it right, we need more affordable housing not not only in Shaw but around the city,” said Shaw Activist Mahdi Leroy J. Thorpe, Jr.
