My only wish is that the YMCA and YWCA could have coordinated and joined forces at the time the YWCA building closed, and before the YMCA renovation began. In many cities, nonprofits in this economy have had to get creative. I saw a few ‘YM/YWCA’s as they’re called and after pooling together their resources, they were able to build a very nice facility, while keeping the kids’ programs and daycare with better security, modern (and ventilated!) fitness area, rooftop basketball & tennis, while retaining the YWCA’s programs which are more social justice and community-based stuff. Not knocking what the Y has done here, but it’s just lopsided (a facility downtown, a little here and there in Woodland, something in the West End, YW has some office on First St…just saying, it’s too bad things didn’t work out differently.

Could you imagine the lawsuits if an apartment building for only whites opened? I know they say this is open to anyone, go check in a year to see how many non-Indians are in there. When are people going to realize giving people everything for free doesn’t help them one bit? There is no sense of pride or accomplishment, it breeds laziness and a sense of entitlement generation after generation. Must be nice to be able to legally break a contract and steal services, frees up a lot of money to provide free housing for everyone. This is modern racism at it’s best, I’m white and I see it clear as day.

Enjoy lala land magnum, based on your posts, you questioning my intelligence is actually a compliment. Are you taking advantage of the handouts? You sure are a defender of them, get a job.

If anyone is living in lala land it is Brian. Cry me a river Brian about how tough it is to be you…must be a bummer to be a white person in Duluth. I work for a living, I didn’t have everything handed to me on a silver spoon. If anyone needs a job…it’s you.

I love being a white man. I wouldn’t do well accepting free housing, free food, free healthcare, free education, free daycare, free heat, free everything, I take a lot of pride in working hard to provide my family that kind of stuff, builds character. However, it does kind of piss me off to work as hard as I do to provide that stuff to a bunch of useless losers. You can bury your head in the sand and deny it’s true, but that’s just a sign of extreme ignorance or pure stupidity.
I’m curious about a few things.
1. Did you see anywhere in the article where it specified that the housing was “free”?
2. Can you define exactly who you feel the “useless losers” are in this story?
3. You actually didn’t recieve a Free education like the majority of us?

Brian, do you volunteer your time or donate money? If not, YOU are not providing anything to anyone except yourself. You really are more misguided than I first thought….wow.
I sure do magnum, and as I presumed you would, you’ve allowed ignorance and stupidity to prevail again. All I can do is shake my head at the likes of you.

Yup, Daloot again…sigh.
Oh Katy, I knew you’d come out from under your rock on this one. Useless losers are everywhere, there will be a huge pile of them in this building before long. Not sure how they are paying anything if they have nothing, sure the state or county may be paying something on their behalf, but it ain’t coming from their hard work. And finally, I paid for every cent of my college. Yes, we are all provided a high school education, but as usual, tribe members get the majority if not all of their college paid for. The whole free high school thing is a bit skewed too, I went with anticipation of getting done and paying taxes all my life, some amongst us don’t pay any tax but take full advantage of the “programs” those taxes provide. Your defense of these behaviors all the time should be embarrassing to you, it disgusts me.
