I'm heartened to hear that the City Council of Detroit is considering changing their votes, but I'm also saddened that the racism continues. An employee of a company fired off a racist e-mail to a City Council person. While I think it's deplorable that this person resorted to racist attacks, it's not unexpected since race entered the conversation from the City Council itself. Race should not be a factor in this conversation. Racism serves no-one, and as this employee and his co-workers found out, it can be devastating. (All of the employees at the office the employee worked at lost their jobs, and the police are seeking a warrant on the employee for using a computer to intimidate a person.) Please, let's keep the racism out of this discussion on all sides, and work to building up Detroit instead of tearing it down with hatred. I hope this ends soon, and whatever decision is made is both beneficial for the City of Detroit and the Detroit Zoo.
