Fortress Charlotte, Class Act, and The Beat Goes On all depicted caucasians as bad people, including the reference to the shooting in South Charlotte. Why was the shooting depicted in South Charlotte? These 3 videos were very prejudicial. I certainly don't treat people the way the actors in the videos did.

We all need to come together as a community and work to support and encourage each other - no one should be sleeping outside with all the resources the US has available.
I don't need to wait 10 years, this is my neighborhood now. I have seen the 600+ homes in my westside neighborhood change dramatically in the past few years. Once a safe, family friendly community where everone owned and took pride in their homes. The adults worked together to offer the neighborhood a pool with a swim team, organized football, baseball and softball; a place where ... read more
That sucks that the vet wasn't allowed in due to the set capacity, because I think a lot more people could have fit into that gym.
I did get a little teary eyed watching this because I can't believe that this actually happens!!
I think the story is a little exaggerated that Charlotte would make such a disastrous change for the worst in such a small amount of a time. That said, I can only hope that this city does not stray down the path leading to this outcome

This just proves to show where our society is headed if we continue not to care and not get involved in the community. We see too many houses being foreclosed on and neighborhoods going under and shelters overflowing with people. What change do we need to make to avoid what is portrayed in this video from becoming our everyday reality?
I believe that this is a problem and its only getting worse. Charlotte is a big city and sometimes it is hard for families to live here. It is very sad to think about but I believe this video hits the nail on the head for the next decade.
I think this makes Charlotte look really bad! It scares me it will be like this in 10-15 years but at the same time I don't feel that it will. I feel this is a little to hard on Charlotte. I think Charlotte is a great place. Charlotte needs to improve a lot though but its not this bad.
