People used to bag on Dr. Khaleed Shukairy when he owned the team, despite the fact that helped bring home the Colonial Cup more than once. I always felt most of the ire was directed at him due to his ethnicity. If the allegations against the Perani Group are true, seems like the good doctor deserves some long overdue kudos.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
