Congratulations on getting directly mentioned in a major newspaper.

It's true. Many Hispanic people do not take care of their homes. It is not racist or stereotype because I see it. On average, latino homes are more broken down and trashy. It takes little or no money to take care of your home.

Don't bring Tijuana here. Take care of your homes.

I read the article and disagree. Here we go again with the "race card".

If you do your job, no one will bother you. The only ones that need to worry are the lazy ones and God knows we have a few of those in every color.

Just the way we as latinos should take care of our homes, which most of us do.

Why dont you take care of your own children as well as your own problems.

The article says that 80% or more are Latinos, right? So why is the council spending so much money on Black History Month and on the Juneteenth Celebration? We should also go by the percentage of population.

Well eventually all if this will soon change. The City is broke, so why celebrate anything.

What a joke. The LA Times reporter even tries bringing the white man into this by the use of some "study", insinuating that our thoughts are dictated by them.

How many of the areas residents are illegally in the country and should have absolutely no say so in the politics of the city? Your amnesty has not passed yet and probably won't.

So that's how it is? Break into my country. Demand rights! Demand power! Kick the other ethnic groups out. Latinos have caused the majority of the problems with their illegal racial power grabs and their complete disdain for any other race other then their own.

Birthing thousands of anchor babies to use as political tools is reprehensible. But congratulations it works.

What a joke. I never thought that such a racial divide would develop between African Americans and Latinos. It just does not make since. I live in another city now because it was too much. We need to get this crap together. Just keep in mind that once upon a time ago there was this thing called the Slave Trade. It happened in South America, Central America, the islands, up into Mexico and the United States. Eventually blood lines were mixed. Think about it. Stop trippin!!!!!

Bosshogg, thank you. There is nothing racial in our City. A handfull of lazy, incompetent employees are trying to make it seem this way.

The educated African Americans that are actually doing a great job, don't feel this way.

You really believe in the end most Hispanics give a care about blacks? Soon blacks will be 4 in population and power. You believe Asian's will cut blacks any slack? Whites has some guilt, Hispanics and Asians do not. Whites may not be a good friend, in the end in my opinion they are the only friend.

It is a demographic change, it was white, then black, now hispanic. What's the big deal?

It is very clear that this website plays a very important role in this unprivileged community, so much so that it seems that the life of the communtiy spins around this blog. The tensions we see here are only a reflection of the poor leadership of both black and hispanic elected officials in Lynwood.

TWO Ponits about the LA TIMES article:

1) DYMALLY is a CROOK! He went to JAIL!!! Thats why the park name was changed.

2) Phatis Pooper is the LAZIEST, sloth of a person I have ever met! For her to be potrayed as a poor vistim of racism is outragous!

PROVE ME WRONG! I dare ANYONE, just ONE person to say anything good about PHATIS' work ethic and value as an employee...

ANYONE!

PLEASE!

fighting for control of the ghetto between blacks and mexicans. it's not just here in ghetto so-cal communities but, all over the nation. as more and mexicans (including illegals) and other hispanics come here, the only place where they can afford to live to live in the 'hood. once reason why i no longer live in la county - at this rate, the majority of the county will be a wasteland. keep on fighting ... you only make my suburbia property increase in value each day despite a falling market.

The LA Times article is not objective reporting; the reporter failed to look at the real reasons contracts were cancelled. All of Richards' friends had the contracts; they got them illegally, no bids, just kickbaks to him; he also failed to mention that latinos had no city contracts, so no latino contracts wwere cancelled. I do not see Lynwood in a racial war despite Leticia's comments. I get along with all ethnic groups living in our city. Granted, we have people like Leticia trying and the LA Times reporter trying to start a racial war in our society. Please don't fall into this trap.

All you guys are dumbest fucker's on earth. You guys keep fighting amongst each other once the property value goes down just enough we will come in and buys the shit right from underneath you dumb fucks and rebuild Lynwood back to lily white. You just wait and see... In the meantime keep fighting we always profit from you asshole anyway.

There is some truth to the blogger of '4:53 PM, June 05, 2007'

How much research did this journalist gather regarding the contracts and positions related to the city? and if he did research why didnt he mention all the sh*t that surrounds the contracts and the high paying kick back jobs some uneducated-my 5year nephew can do better-lynwood employees have or had.

is it because that isnt juicy enough to attract readers? is the truth to hard to mention or does it hurt some people... i mean if u are going to write an article, why not write everything? I am almost sure he did research(based on who he quotes in the article) but choose not to mention thus making it seems like it is based on race---WHICH IT ISNT!!

If you are not a good worker-THEn YOU ARE NOT A GOOD WORKER.
If you have a crooked contract-THEN YOU ARE A CROOKED BUSINESSPERSON.
Doesnt matter what your race, nationality, ethnicity, gender or age.

Why would you want to write a half-ass article for a big newspaper company that makes it seem that HE IS CONTRIBUTING TO A DIVISION OF RACE IN THE CITY.

GET UR FACTS STRAIGHT!

This is the problem with a city dominated by [fill in the blank with your choice- negroes, Mexicans, "mayates", "llantes", Latinos, Ladinos, "wetbacks" or coloreds]. The strife could be ended, and will be ended, once the peace-loving and honest Samoan community comes into power. If you don't get along with the Samoans then they will beat the living crap out of you (which will be well-deserved). Viva Poly Power!!!!

It's not until you get rid of leaders like Jackson and Sharpton that you will move forward. Its funny to me that only the non-Black people that write them checks are OK in their book.

You gotta rid of that "hood victim" mentality that people owe you just because your great, great, great great, grand uncle was a slave. Its been over 125 years!

I checked some records and guess what; the LA Times reporter was so bias that he lied when he wrote that the owners of businesses of contracts that were cancelled during that time settle with the city. According to court records, Superior Court dismissed their cases as frivoluos; what really happenned is that when Sanchez jumped to Richards and Byrd, they gave back those contracts to the same people. Also, Lee Duncan mentioned in the article is and was a major player as far as kickbacks to Richards and company are concerned. I really believe that LA Times should check this guy Mitchell, he's placing the newspaper with credibility issues and possible legal issues.

HERE WE GO AGAIN!!
its not about what color u are or what part of the world u are from... its about work ethnics.... every company has one of everything, such as a whiner, a complainer, a lazy, a good worker, a smart worker, etc. when u work for the city or any govt agency that is funded by tax papers-you are watched and criticized more.
that is the way it is in any country you go to.

try this... close ur eyes, clear your mind of 'race/color/age' and think about what makes a good worker.. the skills necessary for the job, their attitude, their education then write down 'a pro and con list' & again dont look at color, age, etc. then decide if they deserve the job.

you may have gotten the job thru connections but in reality you should have had that job because you dont have the skills/education necessary. years of working and you still dont get it and u are still lazy--come on now something gotta give.

Freedom os speech has nothing to do with newpaper reporting. A newspaper like LA Times should set an example in reporting facts and should not report racist allegations. Mitchell, Leticia Vasquez, Johnson and other could claim racism but, but it's up to decent journalism to care about our community. LA Times failed Lynwood just as much as our councilmembers have failed us.

These elected officles have just started the race diversity. They are so irresponcible and pathetic that will create an issue that doesn't exist. Face it, the residents don't want you four to represant us. Keep on slandering my name in public meetings when I'm not there to defend myself. Thank goodness for tape recorded meetings. You four are just trying to buy time. It didn't work for Richards and it won't work for you all.

I went to my best friend's daughter's first grade dance concert covering different cultural dances from MEXICO tonite.

SO WHAT?

Her school is a prominent dual immersion elementary school. For all you dummies, dual immersion schools teach their students in SPANISH. Students must pass a test to attend the PUBLIC school and only the best are selected.

SO WHAT?

In an area with few Latinos, most of the students are BLACK! and white.

Seems like some people get it.

Latino is the way to go.

Deal with it.

The truth is the 2 latinos have nothing better to then play the race card. Byrd and Johnson aren't the ones crying racism.

Anonymous said...

The truth?

The truth is:

1) DYMALLY is a CROOK! You wanted to keep our park named after a crrok, just because he is BLACK?

2) Phatis Pooper is laziest sloth of a person on the planet! Ask ANYONE on city staff not named Byrd, canTnisha or Mr. Woods that leaves you with 300 other people (BLACK and Latino to ask).

3) Lee Duncan was charging the, you and me, 4 to 5 TIMES the going rate in other cities for the same service. Costing the city HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of extra dollars that could have gone to after school programs or streets!

But this OK because they are BLACK?

Please explain this to me!

What's happenning at city hall has nothing to do with what's happenning in the community. At city hall there is a power struggle, what happens in the community is called daily normal living where neighbors help each other regardless of race. The LA Times was wrong (the reporter) in saying that the community is divided; he should have said that the members of the city council are divided which happens in any other city.

Anonymous said...

What's happenning at city hall has nothing to do with what's happening in the community. At city hall two different groups are in the middle of a power struggle. The community is different, neighbors from racial backgrounds are helping each other. The LA Times failed to notice that the Lynwood community is trying to survive regardless of their political "leadership" which is not different than any other city in Los Angeles County. Please do not compare the good people of Lynwood with the money, power hungry politicians.

I'd like see that proof too. I never went to the DA's office. I didn't support the recall on Richard at the time. I was new to politics and knew nothing of city buisness. All I knew was that Mr. Richards was one fine looking brother. I was spending my time volunteering and would see how friendly and nice Mr. Richards was to all the senior citizens. That was good enough for me. You could imagine my regret when I found out that I should have done my homework. Live and learn, since then I have made it my goal to learn every inch of Lynwood city business. I'm learning one department at a time. I'm still struggling in the redevelopment agency. But thanks to Aide Castro

To THE WATCHER:

The reason why all the racial lawsuits were won is because the blacks were in control of the coouncil back then. They order the city attorney and staff to settle and pay huges amounts of money. Ask Paul Ricahrds sister if you think this is not true. The contractors are not in jail right, but the one who gave the contracts without proper bidding is (Richards)and other will follow(Bird & Pedroza)soon. Mr. Lee Duncan has over charged the city for poor work and for work not done. Ask Adolfo what happen when he discovered the envoices submmted by Lee for no work or poor work. He told staff then he was removed from overseeing Lee's work, they put a manager with no tree trimming or landscaping experience (Jorge) at all to supervice his work. In the end, the grounds crew always clean up the contractors mess. By the way, Jorge was force to quit by his director(DJ-black), she overloader him with work and illegal requests.

I'm stunt by the fact that so many illegal latinos in the city of Lynwood have the nerv to even open their mouths. You make demands while most of you cant speak english, you have your ancor babies translate for you, you come to the city hall with a translator,(who pays for him anyway?)I hope not my tax money. It is a fact that most of your homes are filthy and the garages you live in are filthy to. You demand to be taking care of by the AMERICAN taxpayer, and put a burden on my social services. We feed you, we educate your children, and we give you medical care. Why dont you demand all of this from your government? I guess you are not so loud and brave south of the border thats why you are here, and you must be cowards, sneaking in to this country. Why dont you come here the legal way like decent people from other countries do? Stand up and make a change in your country dont try to change mine. There are thousands of young AMERICAN man and women who have died for this country. Would you? I dont think so. You have no allegiance. You come here to use. I'm not black, I'm not white, I'm not other. I'M AMERICAN. My comments are not racial motivated, they are a fact. Stay out of the Lynwood City business, unless you are a AMERICAN CITIZEN.
P.S. Stop popping out these babies, you know you cant feed them whitout the AMERICAN taxpayers help.

About the comments @7:55 - 6/10

I totally agree with you, but their are some things you forgot to mention:
The way these fake Lynwood citizens park their cars on their front lawns, the way they concret- in their front and back yards just so they can park all their broken down vehicles.
They way they have 3 or more Pit Bull dogs tied up, let them starve and beat them just for the hell of it.
Also, what about the furniture, matresses, old T.V.'s, etc.,etc. They throw them right into the streets.
Who they think is picking this filth up? The good fairy. And you forgot to mentioned how compelt these people feel to throw out messy diapers from their cars.
Is it in their culture to trash cities?
I live in Lynwood many years but never have I seen a city trashed so bad and so fast.
And how about the graffity?
The city looks equal to third world countries, and believe me I been to many of them.
Why don't you fake citizens go back were you came from and continue to dirty up your own cities/country or move to the dessert where you can have all the freedom and room to dump your broken down cars, throw your trash anywhere you like and let your poor dogs run free just as you have done in your country.
Don't continue your ignorend life style in my City. Let the real Lynwood citizens keep their property value up. And their streets clean.

There is someone who constantly refers to a person name Phyllis as beeing fat and also called here an elephant. From what I have seen over the years is, that you latinos are real serious lard asses your selfs. So shut up already talking about someone beeing fat.
I'm sure who ever makes these comments about this women is one of those lard asses herself.
One more thing you forgot to mention 7:55 - 6/10.
Maybe I.C.E (in case you morons don't know what that means - Immigration and Customs Enforcement)should make a sting on city hall and a few other places, and check social security numbers. Some of you people are known to steal them.
Maybe they need to check their drivers license, some of you people are known to buy them for $50 at Mac Arthur Park in Los Angeles. (We know what's up) I bet that would weet out some of those fake Lynwood citizens.
Well, I hope there are no hard feelings and you can handle the truth.

PEOPLE!

...this is about MONEY!

How do I keep my well paying job? A job that I am NOT qualified for? A job that was GIVEN to me by my city council buddies? A job I would NEVER get at another city?

Very simply:

The race card.

Why would a lower-level city employee (you know who you are) travel over an hour and a half to come to work EVERYDAY (late, may I add) for a job with many similar OPEN positions in cities closer to home?

ANSWER: You are NOT required to work here and when you are asked to work, you can run to Byrd.

Take an honest look at the Byrd crew:

One can't read or write (I am SERIOUS, don't take my word, just ask around). Yes! A FULL-TIME City Employee CANNOT read or write! HINT: Seniors

One has had THREE meetings with Byrd and her supervisor over the last two months because her supervisor tried to discipline her for not doing her job. WAIT! Mr. Byrd to the rescue! (By the way, this is the same person who didnt know how to turn on her computer, again..just ask around)

Our corrupt Mayor constantly bases decisions on RACE. He makes statements about cutting black staff members, contracts and events...

FACT: The City spends DOUBLE the money on Black (10% of population) cultural events than on Latino events (80% of population). We are not complaining about the figures.
BUT we are saying that Byrd's statements are absolutely FALSE, MISLEADING and RACE BAITING!

FACT: Since the supposed "Latino takeover of council", the OVERWHELMING majority of dismissed employees and terminated contracts have been LATINO!

That LA TImes artcile didn't tell you that DYMALLY is one of the most CORRUPT politicians in our area's history...It didnt tell you that poor Lee Duncan was charging the City 4 to 5 times the going rate for his services...It didnt tell you that the poor "victim" employee (at the end of the story)has been disciplined numerous times (and bailed out by Byrd several other times) during her time as an employee!

We know about the meetings Byrd has had with the "Byrd Crew" and the comments they make about Latinos.

Phatis, we know what you said when you heard the new HR Director was Latino.

How do we know? You shouldnt trust those around you. The MAJORITY of Black employees are GREAT employees. It is the five of you that are an embarassment to the City Team and your race.

I sleep very well at night. Must be tough to be "Wow is me" YOU.

Don't get me wrong, Latinos at city hall have our share of incompetents and crybabies, too.

BUT this is not some racist conspiracy as is being claimed.

Where were all the cries of racism at the height of Richard's power?

Well?

Latinos were still the overwhelming majority, yet only had about 10% of high level jobs.

THAT WASN'T RACISM?

BUT NOW IT IS?

First of all, I didn’t say he went to jail, "dumbass". I said he was a CROOK, corrupt as they come.

"THEY LOW-GRADE THE DARK SKIN PEOPLE IN THEIR OWN HOMELANDS...IF YOU WANNA GET REAL" - If you want to "get real", what do you think of Latin-Blacks? American Blacks are not very fond of them, are they? Why? They are just like you, but for whatever reason they are treated by American Blacks VERY differently, "low-grade", if you will.

Secondly, “Ilicit” is spelled
“I – L – L – I – C – I – T” ,

AND

“compelt” is spelled
“C – o – m – p – e – l – l – e - d”...trust me, I took your advise & checked at the “library”.

Finally, “Let the real Lynwood citizens keep their property value up.”

Hmmm...Thought you should know that this 85% Latino community’s homes are selling for more $ than homes in LAKEWOOD! I guess buyers must like “diapers on your lawns”?

AND “Some of you people are known to steal them.”

Do you mean like stealing welfare checks from mailboxes? Walking out on your bill at Denny's? Or more like stealing tax dollars by being on “disability” since you were 21?

Just asking.

"Well, I hope there are no hard feelings and you can handle the truth." Lynwood is close to 90% Latino. No matter how much you hate, cry, kick, & scream this will not change. It will only INCREASE.

Hope you can handle the truth.

If you didn't have a race problem this whole blog would not be so dedicated to these discussions

Also you spend alot of time pointing the finger at black employees, but you fail to talk about the Latino employees that use Councilmembers to get jobs and to protect their incompetancies. The list of unqualified Latino political appointments begin with Jonathan Collin-Salas!

In regards to the comments 12:16 - 6/13

You can fish for a comparison as much as you want. In the end you agree with me by the statement you made, that you are the majority.
POINT WELL TAKEN, THATS WHY THE CITY OF LYNWOOD IS SO TRASHED.

You really do see the light.

Speaking of incompetent...

"Hey you... D. Spears, wake up!"

I've seen you cruising our streets with J.D. and goofing around going to see your girlfriend. This is during working hours.

No problem with that, huh?

No...That's NOT a problem because that would be RACIST, right?

Well, Well Well,

I have waited a while to send a reply to some of these emails. with no names. (Red Flag)

It is sickening to read all of this attention (Gossip, Lies) you folks are trying to send Sylvia's way. I am a sounding wall & advisor for La Sra. Ortiz & have known her for 30 yrs.

There is nothing about her life or past I do not know or am aware of.

I tell Sylvia, When they stop talking about you that is when you worry.

She is obviously a threat to somebody! There is obviously something in your closets you are trying despretly to concel.

"No se puede tapar el sol con un dedo."

"Sylvia", lives by this saying;

Si lo save Dios ques lo sepa todo el mundo entero.

You guys spend an awful lot of time digging up lies & half truths about on a volunteer. Sylvia is obviously a threat to some people. Not to say everybody is a fraud or not honest. It's a red flag when so much energy is spent on a volunteers backgroud. Sylvia is a product of this city & she believes in what she does.

I have gone as far as discouraging Sylvia from continuing her volunteering & being scrutinized by everybody. When she acts ONLY as a volunteer.

If this city ever gets to her & she is not longer involved like she is now it would be a HUGE loss to Citizens & City of Lynwood.

If in fact if you are so interested & have the time to spend on Sylvia's life & past you
need to get a LIFE. She is only a volunteer!

That person that is free of sin cast the 1st stone.

All you are drawing more attntion to yourself & your past. Even if you do not have the confidence in your allegations to put your name. We do know who you are & I am watching you & when it is time the Sleeping bear will wake.

Everything in do time.

Sincerly

S. Ruiz
Advisor and confidant

If you have any questions/doubt reguarding my client please feel free to ask.

The key to a sucessful city candiate or succesful leader is that there lives are an open book. so loosers like some respondes will not nbe able to rain on her parade.

Honety is still the best policy.
(Sylvia is honest to a fault)

PORNOZA is like a lighthouse standing tall above the sea.

When the storms of my corruption come crashing in, the light of my jail cell you'll see.
