    "Progressive" Portland begins repairing 50 miles of gravel roads, no plans to pave

    I understand these gravel roads within city (!!) limits are in mostly-poor/Black areas. No wonder #WALKAWAY is a thing.

    There is but one anchor to attach yourself to, as this world falls apart heading into the End Times. That anchor is the immovable God Almighty, through His Son Jesus Christ.

    Isn't it racist to not give black people paved roads?

    How very progressive.

    I noticed even decades ago, interstate and federal higways in majority Black areas seem to get the most funding and maintenance and mostly White areas get the least. Around here when they do repairs and repaving on the interstate, the work is done by small crews and they seem to take forever. Maybe offering contractors large windows for completion is a way to make the most of minimal funding.

    You can only have two out of three. Quality, speed, low cost.
