Let's just wait until a tenant is at least named! lol If you still don't enjoy the Banks, I'm sure you'll be in the minority.

Let's just pretend for a second that the East End and Downtown were in the same neighborhood and that the Banks is comparable to Adams Landing ... lol...

Do you honestly think that the East End struggled pre-recession? I can pull MLS data for you if you'd like and compare it to any neighborhood you like, if you are really interested.

What neighborhood do you live in, I'll be more than happy to compare the two?

Yes, I honestly do not support this. I find it counter productive to have busloads of children visiting the slave pen (the only physical exhibit) without the context of seeing that other poor in the time period lived in similar conditions. And, where is the part about how white Americans more than any other nation fought and died to end slavery? And, where is the part about the role of African tribal leaders in the slave trade? Missed that did they? I was offended by the place. I imagine that's why not many with free will (as compared to school children) go there.

I don't really get your analogy. As you know, I work in OTR and own additional property there. I live in Mt Lookout but will probably move to OTR for downsizing. Do you think Eastern Ave. and Adams Landing were easy to sell? Is that the point?

We're getting way off topic here ... way off, but I'll say this. There are women sold into slavery that come to the states (specifically San Diego) for sexual toys. Thank God for an institution that brings this to light. The thing you're caught up on is the only thing your eyes can physically see and that's the yellow buses. Go inside one time and then get back to me.

I think I've seen your truck. Do you do a lot of off-roading?

I hope everyone is against slavery, old or new. But the central focus of the Freedom Center is not about Freedom. It is grievance politics of the worst kind. I've spent hours in the Freedom Center on at least 4 occasions (probably a lot more time than most people have) and I can guaranty you that 9 out of 10 kids who make the visit will remember only one thing from their trip: the Slave Pen.

Possibly, but maybe not. If just one kid is shown what happens today and remembers it ... the whole damn building is worth it.

Quick google search, second result down: Concerned Women for America - The Sex Fields of San Diego

This is real and we need an institution to show people that it is.
