Not in My Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American city

Not in My Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American city

Baltimore is the setting for (and typifies) one of the most penetrating examinations of bigotry and residential segregation ever published in the United States. Antero Pietila shows how continued discrimination practices toward African Americans and Jews have shaped the cities in which we now live. Eugenics, racial thinking, and white supremacist attitudes influenced even the federal government's actions toward housing in the 20th century, dooming American cities to ghettoization. This all-American tale is told through the prism of Baltimore, from its early suburbanization in the 1880s to the consequences of "white flight" after World War II, and into the first decade of the twenty-first century. The events are real, and so are the heroes and villains. Mr. Pietila's engrossing story is an eye-opening journey into city blocks and neighborhoods, shady practices, and ruthless promoters.

Baltimore Harbour Long Exposure Pano

Baltimore Harbour Long Exposure Pano

6 images | ND110 | 22mm | ISO 100 | f16 | 30 secs

You must press 'L' and see this large.

Spent some time in Baltimore this weekend after the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert 'Rally For Sanity and/or Fear' in DC.

The conditions in Baltimore on Sunday were ideal for long exposure photography with beautiful golden light in the morning and then fast-moving clouds throughout the rest of the day. The variety of architecture and the water of the harbour meant there were photos in every direction I looked. A few more images to come over the next couple of days as I work my way through the processing.

Lots of editing work here. Original image is 9000 pixels wide.

Cop in the Hood: My Year Policing Baltimore's Eastern District

When Harvard-trained sociologist Peter Moskos left the classroom to become a cop in Baltimore's Eastern District, he was thrust deep into police culture and the ways of the street--the nerve-rattling patrols, the thriving drug corners, and a world of poverty and violence that outsiders never see. In Cop in the Hood, Moskos reveals the truths he learned on the midnight shift.
Through Moskos's eyes, we see police academy graduates unprepared for the realities of the street, success measured by number of arrests, and the ultimate failure of the war on drugs. In addition to telling an explosive insider's story of what it is really like to be a police officer, he makes a passionate argument for drug legalization as the only realistic way to end drug violence--and let cops once again protect and serve. In a new afterword, Moskos describes the many benefits of foot patrol--or, as he calls it, "policing green."
