DC To Honor Crack Smoking Ex-Mayor With Statue and School

The District of Columbia marked the one year anniversary of former Mayor Marion Barry’s death with the announcement that it will build a statue of Barry outside City Hall.

A commission brought together by Mayor Muriel Bowser culled a list of 30 suggestions on how to commemorate Barry, a longtime D.C. politician who gained wide noteriety after he was caught smoking crack in a hotel room, down to just four.

Those ideas, according to Bowser, reflect the areas where Barry had the largest impact on the city — youth, education, community and government.

So to honor Barry, the city plans to erect a statue in front of City Hall, rename a road in his honor, rename Frank W. Ballou Senior High School in Ward 8 where Barry served as a council member and name the new student center at the University of the District of Columbia after Barry.

I only need to ask this question to the black community.
How are your policies and goals going to make your lives better?
Think about it.

I wonder what the school colors will be. And the school song. And the school logo. And the school mascot. There should be a competition.

I hope that it's a road to nowhere, which is where he took DC.

"Frank W. Ballou High School has been serving the Ward Eight community since 1960. Frank W. Ballou High School opened in 1960. It is named after Dr. Frank Washington Ballou who was elected the seventh superintendent of the D.C. Public Schools in 1920. He served as superintendent until 1943. During his tenure as superintendent, he affected many changes and established new positions throughout the school system.

Ballou continues to build a successful legacy due to the knowledgeable staff who is dedicated to empowering every student to choose their own path upon graduation. Ballou offers Advanced Placement classes to give our college-bound students a competitive edge. Career preparation and technical classes ensure that those same students receive a well-rounded education.

Ballou High School has a proud legacy of excellence. A nationally recognized marching band, competitive robotics team, and athletic teams that consistently prove that Ballou Knights are a force to be reckoned with, are a source of pride for students and staff."


Well, with the name change to Marion Barry High School, that legacy will be changed, won't it.

The school mascot should be a sloth. The school song: "Some Entrapment Evening!", and the school motto, "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme."

I've been trying to figure what the hell blacks want , been thinking about this for years. I do understand they want fair and equal judgment like EOE etc. , that's all good .
Anyway , this is my idea , like D.C. , we should give them a city , the whole city . If they are successful , then we can move on to the next step. However , when they accept this city , they are on their own for all decisions , no help from anyone or any country.
We will be building statues for all these guys , good example is the mayor of Baltimore. The best we can hope for is another Mrs. O'leary's cow.

Sorry! No, No we do not and will not have any racist statues when some are trying to remove Thomas Jefferson's from college compasses.

Renaming Frank W. Ballou HS to Marion Barry Preparatory HS would not be a bad idea. @dcpublicschools @HendersonKaya
