Truly a great man! As a young black native of atlanta, I can honestly say that I have the upmost respect for him. He did a lot of great things for this city and turned a once negative personal view of blacks into a positive supportive one. He stood for what other white mayors in other major cities (including northern ones) dared not to... equality for all. I hope that he will one day be ressurected to once again breathe the breath of life and join with the saints in God's kingdom. He was proof of what putting a native of atlanta in office will do... only we understand our city best. God bless him... may he rest in peace.
