Freep's Oneita Jackson Weighs In On Rashida

I recently posted about State Rep. Rashida Tlaib's trouble with a recall movement that's been underway by Adolph Mongo and Matty Moroun.

Oneita Jackson, a writer/blogger whose column O Street appears in the online and print editions fot the Detroit Free Press, just posted a new blog online about Tlaib's recent visit to the Corktown Residents Council. According to Jackson, the people there seemed pretty enthusiastic to see her speaking.

Perhaps the most memorable comment relating to the recall/international bridge issue was Tlaib declaring, "It could be because I’m Palestinian, but I have a problem with people occupying land,"

That's putting it bluntly.

Read it here.
