I can't say that I agree with this.

I'm opposed to the protests mainly because of the good the metro link will bring everyone involved. Thanks to the Metrolink, hundreds with no other transportation can more easily get jobs, go to school, or visit their family and friends. I think it’s senseless to stop construction of such a project, and I think it’s short-sided of the people involved. Or do they not want people to have more job access?

What they should do, I think, is bombard the media on how the metro is or is not being discriminatory. I’m one of the poor people too, so I know the benefits from every metro station made, and stopping one from being built halts so many things we poor people need.

If it wasn’t for the metro, I wouldn’t be able to go to school. I wouldn’t be able to go to work. I’m not the only person in this situation. So get out of the fucking way and be more intelligent on how you protest, because what you’re trying to do is cheat people worse off than me out of things we rightly deserve. Talk to the media or something; you’ve got more options then this.

Maybe that's just me.
