I would have expected this sort of thing from Salt Lake City

Um. Cincinnati is heavily Catholic.

Alright medical experimentation for the whole lot of you then

Anybody knowledgeable about such things from Cincinnati want to expand on the "the two cities are very similar" quote from the article.

/Used to work with the local sister city organization, so I'm curious.
//Yay Wuhan!

That was a pretty cool looking building in the article.

You can't even see the crushing poverty.

Still doesn't mean your brown people won't be discriminated against. Just fyi.

Most of the IT workers in Cincinnati are from India?

Cincinnati has a couple rivers. But, they feature less bathing.

Makes sense to me. They had all these other places to be sisters for the rest of the city but the Over the Rhine section had no equal. (Well, maybe Cleveland)
So they picked a place called mysore for the eyesore.

Cincy kind of has a reputation for being the Boston of the Rust Belt as far as racism goes.

Plus (going along with the headline), the current Pope is a pretty huge bigot.

Ahhhhh, I was not aware of this. Then again, having never visited Boston, I'm not quite sure how they do, either.

FTA:

Mysore, India joins cities in China, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe by signing a sister city agreement with the City of Cincinnati. President of the India-Cincinnati Sister City Association Dr. Ratee Apana says the two cities are very similar. Mysore is nestled between two rivers.

It's an obvious agreement to make. They're very similar. Both on rivers, neither much cares for its minority groups, both polluted enough to make the average Chinese politician blush. Mysore can teach Cincy how to make exquisite curry. Cincy can teach Mysore why you'll never see a non-Chicago-themed restaurant brag about its Midwestern cuisine by showing them that abomination that is shiatty chili on spaghetti noodles.

A match made in Heaven. Mysore and the Eyesore.

Yep. Black mayor, black police chief, black MLB coach, black NFL coach and a damn near 100% Democrat city council.

F*cking fascists.

The whole area is German Catholic . The airport in in KY across the river . The city is an abandoned by middle class whites core . They make Southern Baptist look like ultra left wing liberal in comparison . They make small town in the south look like a great place to move to . The biggest thing to happen there was an Ikea opening up the road half way to Dayton . Curry traded for what they call chill ( invented by a Greek restaurateur). In Toledo you get the same chill on spaetzle which oddly enough is a german noodle . So this town famous in it own mind chill does not even us the historical correct spaetzle noodle to put the chill over . Which I will add is a much better product.

1. The "black" mayor, Mayor Mallory, does absolutely nothing to help the black community if he can possibly avoid it. If he does something to help, it's decidedly by accident or a by-product of something to help white people.

2. The MLB and NFL coaches are pretty damned cool, even, I must admit but they have very little to do with Cincinnati outside of sports and few events for the kids.

3. This year, for the first time in history, Cincinnati has a majority black City Council. It's been a whopping 6 months - so don't act like we've always had a majority of blacks on counsel because we haven't. However we still have to deal with a Mayor and City Manager, both black, and both who are major Uncle Ruckus type douchebags.

You know he's only doing the streetcar for the people!

We've had a representative number of blacks on council for a long, long time. And women, too. I just get tired of people yelling that Cincy is some racist hell hole. I agree it's a hellhole, but it ain't racist.

/I forgot to mention the chief of police is black, too
//This must be the new style of the man keeping 'em down.....

Again, the black police chief is a new addition and they had to get him from OUTSIDE the city. We still have to deal with a police force that is notorious for killing black men and a city that hires almost strictly according to race.

Saying Cincinnati isn't racist is a favorite of whites who live here. They love to say shiat like, "We treat our darkies just fine."

Typical White Cincinnati: Hire a few tokens of color and maintain the status quo. Kind of like companies that hire a black receptionist and a black HR person to give a diversity talk once a year, but everyone else in the company is white.

To white folks in Cincinnati, that's full integration though.

In the police force? In Cincinnati?

Are you sure you live there?

For all the haters here, I went to high school there and enjoyed it. Nice city.
