A Tad Defensive?

Ratner support group BUILD invokes Psalm 27:1 as a new year’s greeting on its website: “Though an army besiege us/our hearts will not fear.”

Meanwhile, Darnell Canada, the Fort Greene activist who founded BUILD only to depart a few months later, saying it had been hijacked by self-interested individuals, then created another organization, called REBUILD, has left that one too. This time though, no bitter feelings: “I leave REBUILD with quality leadership, leaders that think and care about the community in the same full-hearted way that I do,” he said in a press release.
