the West End is moving on up....to mediatakeout

Yall know I love my blogs, check out what i saw today on www.mediatakeout.com, the West End. If anyone knows anything about the Morehouse College, Spelman College or Clark Atlanta University campuses, they know it is located in the heart of the west end.

The West End was historically a very significant place filled with affluent African American intellectuals and business owners, however after an 80's crisis that hit the African American community, the West End wasnt able to maintain that same level of high standards. What was to come was what is now the case, a hood environment that perpetuates almost negative stereotype of African Americans.






























These pictures surfaced on a NATIONAL blog (mediatakeout) that briefly highlites the type of residents of the West End who frequent the West End Mall (im being generous by calling it a mall). Check them out for yourself. SMH!!
