The True Baltimore

Here's the True Baltimore City, but you will not see it on US News.

So is Baltimore's population shrinking by people fleeing, or are they just going inanimate and subterranean?

I stopped watching as soon as they steered it to make the War on drugs a racist plot. From that point, no one else in this piece of propaganda can be trusted to give an objective interview.

But then again....it's Al Jazeera

Sorry, no. While Al Jazeera English is fast becoming a legitimate news source, they still do these blatant propaganda pieces far too often.

Calling this video "The True Baltimore" is kind of like making a video about fine dining by going only to McDonalds restaurants.

These guys spent two weeks scouring the city for the worst places and situations in Baltimore, ignOring anything that did not fit in with their story of urban blight, drugs and murder.

Sorry, no. You want to see the real Baltimore? Use your own eyes.

Inroads into, and shortcuts around our basic laws safeguarding individual rights, are too easily accepted - due to indifference, or callousness, or to too quick yielding to the clamor of those who seek to glorify an end, no matter what the means.

I find it interesting the hardcore criminals often blame a lack of a positive father figure and consequently being raised by the streets as a contributing factor to their life of crime.

However when conservatives promote the importance of the nuclear family, it is always made to sound outdated and pointless.

You're being too kind. I hear "bigoted, judgemental, intolerant and hate-filled".

Thanks for posting.

I found it interesting, and even found that they made a few good points. Al Jazeera notwithstanding, I think it’s worth watching. But you have to put your thinking cap on.

Of course it’s solidly a propaganda piece, and as such (and as is common even in the mainstream US media) what you leave out is just as important as what you put in.

Favorites (note sarcasm):

* The drug dealer who said he turned to dealing when an injury ended his hopes of becoming a basketball player. Only those two choices in life?

* The ex-murderer who complains about the number of people with records

* The African American female civil rights lawyer who complains about the disproportionate number of African Americans arrested for committing crimes, while ignoring (or not being asked) the question of: did they actually commit those crimes? And oh, for good measure, let's trot out Reagan's name in there too.

* The rich white liberal who claims the war on poverty, the war on drugs, indeed everything the government has done since the 60s (regardless of which party is in power) is instead, and by design, a war on people of color.

Could they have chosen any more stereotypical “go to” icons?

Note: Not one word about the failed schools (or why they have failed). Not one word about the failed parents who should insist their kids attend school and, oh I don’t know, maybe learn something besides how to play basketball in gym class? Not one word about the students themselves taking responsibility for their own actions and actually doing homework, absorbing knowledge, getting a job not involving professional sports or dealing drugs (there are one or two options in-between those two extremes), and making something of their lives.

Well as I said, interesting but pretty much what you’d expect from Al Jazeera. Or NBC. Or CBS, ABC, PBS/NPR, etc.
