DiBozio is puzzywhpped by his blacko wife. There is no way he will ever accept that black people can commit hate crimes and need to be severely punished for it.

Deblasio’s wife and her former “assistant”, Nordlinger, are cop-haters also and the latter was living with a convicted felon who had posted nasty things about the police. And yet Deblasio was defending her until the last moment!

DiBozio and Ohbewanna are in the last vestiges of political correctness……it will be over soon….

That will be Ohs legacy… personal responsibility matters a whole lot more then race does.

No more trayvons or mike browns No more hiding gangsta FB pages or high school or juvenile criminal records……….you want the cops record on the table well FAIR IS FAIR!

Blacko?!! Why don’t you just use the n-word and be done with it. Would save us the hassle of wondering whether you’re a mean-spirited racist or not. Which, of course, you are.

Because i will give her a chance to be black first before i make any judgements….is that ok with you?

Mr. Skillman Says

By referring to DeBlasio’s wife as a “blacko” I think you
made your judgement perfectly clear.

riki

well mr skillman she seems to side a lot with the N crowd…..and not the B crowd…..

Mr. Skillman Says

And that means what exactly? Your deeply problematic assertion posits that black American life is binary. I would imagine that as a woman of colour, Chirlane McCray has a far more nuanced view of the myriad ways that a black person can be in this country than you ever will. Your “either/or” doesn’t hold up and it also reinforces the outdated and reprehensible notion that blacks who commit crime represent all blacks. It’s notable that when the Greenpoint pharmacy robber of a few months ago was revealed to be of Irish descent, everyone here went very quiet. Also your ebonics point asserts that black people deserve to be punished for “speaking wrong”. In Eric Garner’s case you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t, as most of us would agree that “I can’t breathe” is common parlance in US English for…erm… “I can’t breathe, I am in considerable discomfort, I am most likely dying due to your actions”.

I wonder what the demographics are of the people posting negative comments about race and the need for police reform. Would love to know what their educational level is and how active they are in building their community.

Even if your ridiculous and flawed idea of “tough love” we’re implemented in education, teachers would need to be trained on your version of what “tough love” education is so that its uniform and standardized. That costs the system money.
Your idea that the department of education does not expect standardized English is false. Curriculum is written, delivered, and student performance is assessed in standardized English.
Your idea of tough love solving the issues we are facing is like me telling you, “Stop being stupid, stupid.”

well yes sometimes people need that in your face attitude…

Remember if these morons hit a teacher well they still wont get out of jail till they can read the NY Tomes in front of a parole board and that could take the real hard core losers maybe 50 years.

Ebonics has a severe stranglehold on millions of people and we need to break the chains.

Riki, I’m in the 33% tax bracket and do not have a problem paying taxes. You cannot tough love, police, and force educate away centuries of inequalities. Just after being given 5 decades of “equality”?
By educate what do you mean? Black women have the highest degree conferment on all levels. Doctorate included.
Please stop being a monkey. Know your facts.

Where are the sharptons when another black boy guns another down? Who protests black on black crime? Who protects the innocent law abiding black citizens from feral creatures masquerading as human beings?
A poorly trained and barely educated police force should not be sent to work in communities that clearly need support from various government agencies also.

you still on that spend spend spend ….ok well demand an increase your taxes its obvious you have too much money.

My plan requires NO money just a Tough Love attitude………you will speak English….one way or another.

Oh gee where did that come from? Diversity is never the problem its criminality and if one particular segment s causing the problem then we should aim our resources there…….its common sense.

We do not have a race problem in America..yes you heard me right its a FUNCTIONAL ILLITERACY ONE….places like Detroit Camden Compton will never change until businesses have lots of literate people outside their doors wanting Jobs.

And the best way is to immerse the black population in the English Language.. on all levels…..no more social promotion, make any welfare benefits subject to you sitting in class 20 hours a week and learn English and Math . The same with prisoners let them decide how long they want to be behind bard……….read and discuss the New York Times in front of a parole board and we will take a chance on your rehabilitation.

It’s interesting you mention race when I didnt. Diversity comes in many forms, race obviously being one of them. It’s funny how you would care to set up an educational system to target the “problem” rather than demanding funding be redirected to enriching public education that works with families of students to create success. Realize that you are operating from a place of fear and anger…the people you are identifying as the “problem” are as well. Things will never change with that mindset.

Additional funding doesn’t work teacher certifications do not work…..Its not unions or Democrats or those evil Republicans…we need TOUGH LOVE aka a War on Ebonics

And it manifests itself overwhelmingly in one group of people. We should aim there first.

Its a mindset because the only real difference between a good school and a failing one is the good school demands you speak English when you enter the door………that’s it…….all the other answers you can come up with are just tinkering with the edges.

It is insanely apparent you are neither an educator nor educated on the process and history of education. I forgive you for your ignorance and hope in time you become educated before you continue to harm.

you see i dont subscribe to the leftist notion that black people are born inferior.

And what is the problem demanding English be spoken in a public school by all people.

El loco

Hey genius. How about Akai Gurkey – the guy who was shot in the Brooklyn housing project stairwell. What did he do? What about that 12 year old kid in Cleveland. Most police are honest and caring individual but racism and corruption exists in police departments in America. Racism and corruption must be removed from police departments. And oh yeh Black people must stop committing crime. Ok, I said so sue me. Poverty is not an excuse. At one time crime rates were very low in Black communities. Get your facts straight Rikki.

yes because black people SPOKE ENGLISH and could get JOBS……..compare that to today…millions of black kids hate the name their parent give them so they honor some made up facebook gangsta name..

There was NO trayvon martiin FB twitter instagram or anywhereelse to be found but he has 2 gangsta ones and he honored those.

Well all these black people who get “innocently” shot have a serious problem speaking and understanding English..

Mike Brown “graduated” from the 2nd worst school in all of metro St Louis…wanna bet he was functionally illiterate and only qualified to get some tech training due to your tax dollars aka pell grants

Political correctness is over and everything is on the table including race

It’s people like you that fuel wars and work to insure communities are homogeneous and lacking any diversity. Regardless of your hate, let’s hope communities can rise up and come together with discourse and love. I hope you learn to forgive whoever hurt you and learn to build instead of destruct.

@riki, your comment about Michael Brown’s education or assumed lack of is utterly reductive and quite frankly disturbing reasoning. Your argument basically reads that he deserved to be executed in the street because he was “illiterate”.

Mr. Skillman Says

@riki – So to infer from what you’re saying, Mike Brown deserved to be executed in the street for his presumed lack of education? That is deeply unpleasant reasoning to say the least.

riki

You people are so DUMB…….mike brown made a personal decision to be illiterate so the only job he can get was a stick up artist, and it got him shot…..

WE DON’T HAVE A RACE PROBLEM IN AMERICA WE HAVE A FUNCTIONAL ILLITERACY ONE…..

solve that and race become irrelevant

Where did you get that statistic?
This tragedy shouldn’t become a platform to dismiss the dire need for police reform.

Berkeley officer kills suspect who pulled gun; police say victim was ‘known’ to police

He also said the 9 mm gun found on the suspect had five rounds in the magazine and one round in the chamber. He also said the gun’s serial number had been filed off.

Belmar declined to release his name at the news conference but said he had a criminal record, with charges including three assaults, armed robbery, armed criminal action and multiple uses of weapons since he was 17.

about freakin time people stood up against the thugs……almost 99% of the time the people police shoot at have a criminal record or in the commission of a crime…….very very rarely do police shoot a law abiding citizen.

@riki: I was NOT going to post on how innocent people die because SWAT teams drug-raid the wrong house however your ignorance needs to be addressed. Look up Jose Guerena you doIt.

The NYPD are a gang that had no recourse until this tragic weekend (which these tragic killings are really unsurprising). Police overall need policing. There a many black people who are “very very law abiding people” who get shaken down like its 1940 Germany. Black Lives Matter just as much as Cop Lives Matter. It’s not about Blacks/Race. It’s about Rights. NYPD harass random black kids; that violation of rights violate of random white kids. Wise up! It’s about the coming police state you idi0t!

@Luvu2: What? Prove that a militarized police keeps people free? You probably don’t even intellectually know what I’m talking about. The US police especially the NYPD are a militarized gang. They’re fighting a senseless drug war. They should then fight all the pharmaceutical companies and how they’re killing much more people than any street drug dealer. Today individual drugs are illegal and by the stroke of a corrupt politician (kind of redundant) they can become legal. Today that “black guy” selling drugs on the street corner is a criminal, tomorrow they’re entrepreneur. Who needs a law to know that heroin is bad, anyway? Redic and you know it.

Got food poisoning from Marabella Pizzeria on Greenpount Friday night. Be careful eating there. Just saying. God bless the police officers and their family. Nobody but the mental case is responsible for the shooting but it would be nice if the NYPD received more support. Stamp out police corruption and racism when it occurs but support the vast amount of good officers.
