A group of black ministers called a press conference today to protest the lack of progress in removing the pickaninny portrait from the carousel at Ontario Beach Park.
It was led by the dapper Reverend Lewis W. Stewart, a well known camera hog.
They panned County Executive Maggie Brooks for not taking them as seriously as they take themselves.
This took place less than twenty four hours after one of the worst tragedies in the black community ( and indeed in the City of Rochester ) occurred at the local Boys and Girls Club on Genesee Street: the murders and shootings of innocent people after a basketball game.
Reverend Stewart and his buddies have their priorities screwed up.
Most Rochesterians, black, white and everything in between, have more important things on their minds right now.
