According to Colbert I. King
In questions submitted by the audience, and in barbs hurled at the mayor by lesser-known mayoral candidates, three expressions of derision directed toward Fenty were used almost interchangeably: "The Washington Post" (which endorsed him), "dog parks" and "bike lanes" (both of which he champions). These are three thinly disguised code words for white influence. They also reflect a mind-set that holds that the city's dwindling black majority is being kicked to the curb.
Which is odd, because Fenty hasn't done much more to support bike lanes than Mayor Williams did - which is not meant as a criticism, the bike plan was approved by Williams and under Fenty the action agenda was defined.
Are we to believe that Gray will be against bike lanes?
