So the city is putting up nothing? They can spend hundreds of millions on soccer, XFL football, an aquarium and Ferris wheel… and hundreds of thousands on Kim Gardner’s defense, yet chip in nothing?

And as tiny and as insulting as $25k is, it’s more than the black elite, misleadership & overseer class and these granthustling clergy & orgs are offering.
