Detroit Mayor hires a Chief StoryTeller to give blacks a voice


Recommended Posts

For a mere $75,000  a year,  Detroit will have its own journalist telling its story.    Aaron Foley, former  editor of Blac Detroit magazine and author of "How to Live in Detroit Without Being a Jackass",  is the city's new Chief Storyteller.  The Guardian reports this role may be the first of its kind to represent a municipality in the U.S.  Foley says "local residents deserve better and more diverse stories about the reality of living in the city."    According to the Mayor, having a chief storyteller will help Detroiters and their neighborhoods a stronger voice in the media.

Lol....
This is from a Mayor who has focused nearly ALL of his attention and the city's resources on downtown and the entertainment district while utterly abandoning the surrounding neighborhoods.
 

This is a purely PR move.....

We have an upcoming Mayoral election and the incumbent Mike Duggan is slipping in his popularity.

Duggan is a White mayor of a Black city and his challenger....Coleman A. Young II... is gaining in support because of a recent rash of racist incidents happening around the city that he's been highlighting.

This was a pr move done in an attempt to win over the support of some in the Black community.
