What Happened To The Urban Agenda?
City dwellers "listening to President George W. Bush's 2004 State of the Union Address on primetime last week may have felt overlooked. The president never once uttered the words 'urban' or 'city' or 'New York,' though he did say 'Bulgaria' and 'Bali.'.. Today, there is no real urban policy agenda in Washington... [rather] there is a history of deep anti-urban sentiment in America... Cities continue to be seen as places of poverty, corruption, crime, and immorality. And immigrants, who traditionally first settle in urban areas, have often been viewed with suspicion."
