I live in Atlanta but I’m curious to know how and is Buffalo’s Black Mayor addressing these issues?

I am curious how optimistic people are about the impacts of a potential India Walton mayorship on the black population of Buffalo - particularly working class/working poor and middle class blacks given Walton's activist roots and voiced support for social democratic reforms that would tackle issues related to housing, environmental and economic justice

As I’ve been following the Bills exploring building a new stadium, maybe the stadium needs to be built on the Eastside of Buffalo. Make it mandatory that 35-40% of participation (contractors, suppliers, workforce, etc) be residence of the Eastside. Any thoughts?

Go Dr. Stewart!

JB Hill, I agree!! Why not require those who work in Buffalo live in Buffalo too!!
Lisa Nicholas MD(she,her,hers)
01:53:13
Thank you Dr. Stewart! Powerful response and totally on point regarding the realities of what we face.

Yes, Milwaukee made it mandatory that if your worked for the City you must live in the city. That includes; police, firemen and teachers..
Gwendolyn Baxley
01:55:14
Talk about it Professor Mutua!

The Bills stadium relocation would be subsidized by tax payers, approximately $1.4 billion. Surely that money could be used to provide affordable housing for current east side residents. Not to mention the inevitable gentrification that would result from building the stadium on the east side
Brooke Nicholas
02:00:29
I’m interested in how restitution may be integrated into public policy as a tool for equity and what that would look like. As Dr. Stewart stated, the neglect of the East side can be viewed as criminal.

I fear that the our economy -- the market based economy--- the "structural based economy" or the neo-liberal based economy creates many losers and few winners...

As Dr. Silverman highlighted, the city of Buffalo is obligated to address the presence of vacant lots on the east side (considering they own the vast majority of it). Transferring the land to a non-profit/land bank who could then take action would be worth exploring. The city of Detroit uses a similar program to address vacancy. https://buildingdetroit.org/land-reuse-programs

1. What recommendations do you have for creating equitable development in Buffalo's Black communities, even in those communities where gentrification exists? 2. How do we build or even consider working on city infrastructure if we're not really addressing the serious environmental problems (and other aforementioned issues) that exist primarily in Buffalo's Black and low-income communities? Thank you for

Thank you Professor Mutua! Racial capitalism is intentional and increasingly more dangerous. You have provided a helpful contextualization of a complex and insidious process.

Being from Buffalo, and having lived in multiple cities, the bad news is that this conversation could be had in any major city in America. It’s what systemic racism is! Buffalo can be on the forefront of change, for once!!
Lisa Nicholas MD(she,her,hers)
02:16:43
Yes Reggie, you are so correct. Same conversation in Los Angeles
