I would trust the editorial voice of City if they hired African Americans or hispanics. Even one. But since their current staff is completely Caucasian and their previous writers have been 95% white, I have a difficult time believing that they value this population of Rochester and more report on them like another Sci-Fi movie District 9.
In that movie the journalists swoop in and out of the dangerous sections of District 9 (read "The Crescent") and from a safe distance siphon off the glitz and the non-glamourous stories from the darker race, to sell copy.
City does this every week, never really knowing about the community they report on. Tim Macaluso's use of the "Body Snatchers" metaphor is emblematic of this superficial journalism trick and extremely harmful to race relations and in-depth understanding of our city's problems.
Another ironic essay by Towler, seeing that she has saw fit to not hire even one single black person or hispanic from the "City" of Rochester for her newspaper. Feel free to look at the staff names and google their pictures. Not one minority. And then have the gall to wax on about employment discrimination. PLEASE!!!!
Yet another ironic article by City Newspaper writing about the issue of racial diversity in the city fire department when their own newspaper staff has no black/ hispanic members to speak of.
