New York mayor says subway safe after woman shoved in front of train
Shouting at reporters outside a police station, Martial admitted to shoving Go and appeared to have no remorse for his actions.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



New York Mayor  Eric Adams  (D) on Sunday assured New Yorkers that the city's subway system is safe to use after a woman died when she was pushed in front of an incoming train. 

“New Yorkers are safe on the subway system. I think it’s about 1.7 percent of the crimes in New York City that occur on the subway system," Adams said during a press briefing,  according to The Telegraph .

“Think about that for a moment,” he said. “What we must do is remove the perception of fear."

“When you see homeless individuals with mental health issues not being attended to and given the proper services, that adds to the perception of fear,” said Adams.

The Telegraph noted that the mayor's remarks drew criticisms from New Yorkers who said he is dismissing genuine concerns stemming from physical attacks on the subway.

On Saturday, Michelle Alyssa Go was killed after being  pushed onto the tracks  by Simon Martial, a 61-year-old homeless man. Martial turned himself into authorities and has been charged with Go's slaying.

Shouting at reporters outside a police station, Martial admitted to shoving Go and appeared to have no remorse for his actions.

As local New York  CBS-affiliate WCBS reported , police Commissioner Keechant Sewell called Go's death an "absolutely senseless act of violence.”

“This incident was unprovoked, and the victim does not appear to have had any interaction with the subject,” said Sewell.

A subway rider named Brandon Lewis told the news station that the incident made him feel "less safe."

"It’s a sign to me that the city is starting to fray,” he said.

Although I dont currently, I used to ride the subway in Chicago all the time.  Dont stand near the edge of the platform while you are waiting for the train. Dont stand close enough to the edge where someone can push you on to the tracks. This is simple and easy to do and will keep you safe. When the train starts to pull into the station there will be plenty of time to move toward the doors and get on.

Does the left ever get tired of blaming the victim? Seriously. 

If this nut job wouldn't have been on the streets she would still be alive, period. This isn't even a one off event.

Saturday’s was the second violent death in the subway in two weeks.

The idiot had priors of course; and put another Asian woman in fear for her life before pushing the victim to her death.

The police said that he had had at least three previous encounters with the authorities related to mental health problems. Minutes before Ms. Go was pushed, he had confronted another female rider, who was not Asian, and put her in fear that he would push her to the tracks, they added. Mr. Martial also had several previous arrests and two prison sentences, including one for an attempted robbery for which his parole had recently ended, according to the police and state records.

Not enough police, too many homeless people with mental illnesses, and DA's that don't prosecute shit unless the perp is white. SSDD in the liberal bastion of stupidity.

Of course this wasn't a hate crime. Hate crimes never occur in Democrat run cities- unless the perp is white that is.

China is not like the USA, which is something you wouldn't know because you've never lived there (although your postings indicate that you consider yourself qualified to provide opinions about it).  There is a family and social cohesiveness in China, where it is not at all unusual for at least three generations to live together and support each other.  So if a person is only capable of earning $2 a day he will still have a roof over his head and food on the table because his FAMILY are not poor.  How many times have I pointed out already that Chinese people are much more concerned about the good of the community and the common good of their family than they are about "individual rights and personal freedoms".  Not only have I learned this, but I live it, and gladly.  Just as you ignored the listed reasons why I thought the numbers of Chinese covid virus deaths were not that far off what is published, I'm sure you'll ignore what I know to be true as well.  However, I'm sure the American politicians and media will concoct as many ugly stories as possible in order to demonize and contain China, and they will be the sources that guide you.

Yes, illicit drugs are not a problem here.  Drug dealiers are dealt with very harshly - they are lucky if the sentence is life in prison, because a bullet in the back of the head is more common.  Originally I was warned about pickpockets, but I never knew of an incident during all my years here.  

You're right. the government considers the welfare of the people most important.  That is why the eradication of abject poverty was a number one priority, and it was accomplished, in fact even a bit earlier than scheduled..

Because you cannot legally lock them up unless someone states that they are a danger to themselves or others. Even then, in 7 to 21 days these people are usually back in the public sphere. The treatment of mental illness in the United States sucks. There are not enough hospitals or long term care facilities with the ability and space to care for the numbers of people with mental illness. Plus, in the winter, spaces in these facilities become more rare for whatever reason. 

Pray that you or a loved one never needs help in this area, because it is rare and (also) difficult to get competent and ongoing help.

What about it? There are laws that govern the people of this country, and rights ascribed to those people by virtue of being human. Which of those rights would you like to circumscribe or truncate? 

Wasn't that the argument Joe Biden made for vaccine mandates?

Vaccine mandates have a long history. It is quite unfortunate that politics needs (or even should want) to enter a conversation about health. This is the twisted dystopian world that some people live in. Reminds me of that "I know my rights!" guy.     Your fearless leader would be pleased./s

Pray that you or a loved one never needs to use public transportation.

Why? Do you know how many people use public transportation every day? (In NYC it is about 2 million a day) Do you know how many of them are injured or killed? Here is a link to the BTS on the numbers of traffic fatalities broken out by mode of transport. From these data it would look to be a far more dangerous thing to get into ones car and drive than to utilize public transportation. Here are some more data to ponder on. Especially these (From the link):

  • Traveling by public transportation is   10 times safer per mile   than traveling by automobile.
  • A person can reduce his or her chance of being in an accident by more than 90% simply by taking public transit as opposed to commuting by car.

For those who bother with logical argumentation, Vic would like us to think that because the NYC mayor is a Democrat that this somehow caused a man in need of psychiatric medication to push a woman into the path of a subway. This is known as a non-sequitur logical fallacy. You can't logically get from one to the other, but if it passes one by without careful reading, it might get through to the reader as, "Yes! Something is wrong with the Mayor of New York," rather than , "Yes, something is wrong with the state of the mental health system in the USA," which is a more logical way to look at things, especially if one has a more than passing interest in mental health and healthcare.

It would be far more disturbing if there were someone who was killing people on the subway and the police couldn't catch them, rather than the perpetrator turning himself in. So, if you are going to get mad at anything, Vic, get mad at the culture of American society that says "stuff" is worth more than a human life. That, my friend, is the atrocity.

Just do a little thinking. Aside from the assaults and killings that make the news, how much goes on without being reported. You have loitering, vandalism, defecation, drug deals, minor assaults and how about accosting people for money?  All of that because progressives don't want to put people in institutions.

Define "Insane."

Is it all people who have a mental illness? Are we supposed to lock them all up? What about those that are treatable by medication? What about those that are cyclic in their behavior patterns? Stochastic? Where exactly do we draw the line? 

The problem that we have in this country regarding mental health is not reactionary/progressive, it is that very few people have the will, fortitude or desire to address these issues in a meaningful manner. They would rather just call somebody insane than delve into why. It is much easier to do. "Insane! Dismissed!" they will say, and then the issue is forgotten. Except that it is not forgotten by the individuals so labeled.

They find themselves increasingly marginalized, even when there are people there who wish to help them.

There is mental illness across the country in all locations, but it is most noticeable in the cities because there is nowhere to go. The reasons that people live beneath bridges and in cardboard shelters are many, but one of the largest contributing factors is that we, as a society, do not want to deal with them.

I think you kind of answered your own question. If we can treat people with minor mental disorders we should and we should monitor them. Those who could present a danger to society like this guy obviously did, belong in an institution.

Vic,

As someone who has been dealing with mentally ill family members, let me explain how and why were are where we are.

Before we gave patients a bill of rights, any family member could claim that someone belonged in a mental institution and they were committed whether or not they needed it. Once in, it was very hard to come out, and once in, they were often abused by the staff, and treatments were administered without family consent.

Now, in order for patients to be committed, they have to be shown to be a danger to themselves or to others. Of course, this is not always obvious, since human beings are hard to predict, and also, they are released once the doctors feel that they are stabilized. But being stabilized also means that they are med compliant and that they have a stable home environment, and this is where we have an issue. If someone is homeless, they are less likely to be med compliant. So we have two issues. One of homelessness and the other of no room in our mental facilities. 

Now obviously in the case of this man, he should have been institutionalized, but our institutions are overwhelmed with cases and have little funding, so it has become a revolving door of the mentally ill going in and going out, once stabilized.

To solve this needs money, which is something that many are against.

Because we need evidence of a crime to process them through the justice system. I wish we could lock up the crazy right wing conservative Qanon conspiracy theorists before they shoot their kids with a spear gun, but you have to have some evidence to prove they are a danger to themselves and others. You would think perhaps their crazy ranting about the supposed "deep state" or lizard people or Democrat child sex rings or eating babies would be enough to at least put these folk under surveillance but you get other angry right wing conservatives who defend and deflect for these crazy dangerous right wing conspiracy theorists. With half the country defending them we'll never really be rid of the danger the mentally ill pose.

And thanks to Covid.

We recently had a man who was supposed to go to a mental facility be released because the facility couldn't take any more patients because of Covid - too many sick staff members.  He was held in jail, but that's only legal for a few days.  On release, he got in his car and got on the interstate going the wrong way.  Killed himself and severely injured somebody else, and it's fortunate that it wasn't much worse than that, as it's a heavily traveled road.

For those who want to make sense of your post, here is the statement: 

Spearheaded by the New York Civil Liberties Union's (NYCLU) Mental Patients' Rights Project, the shuttered world of people confined because of mental illness and developmental disabilities was one of the next major enclaves targeted for legal action. Bruce Ennis, Director of the Project, was a prime participant in several landmark cases that became the highpoint of the civil rights movement for people with mental disabilities. In  Wyatt v. Stickney  (1972) and  Wyatt v. Aderholt  (1974), Ennis challenged the conditions of hospitalization for those with mental illness and developmental disabilities, leading to significant reductions in the institutions' populations; major increases in expenditures for mental health and rehabilitative services; improvement in psychologist-patient ratios; significant reductions in the abuse of patients; and the adoption of the then-innovative concept of specific treatment and rehabilitation plans for each individual. The principles argued for by Ennis, and included in the judge's final order, were subsequently adopted by 35 other states. Another significant result of the  Wyatt  litigation was the formation of the Mental Health Law Project (MHLP), now the Bazelon Center in Washington, DC.

Ennis' most sensational case while at the NYCLU began with a class-action lawsuit filed in 1972 on behalf of the 5,400 residents of the Willowbrook State School for mentally disabled children in Staten Island. At the time Willowbrook was the biggest state run institution of its kind in the United States. Filthy conditions and questionable medical practices and experiments prompted Senator Robert Kennedy to call it a 'snake pit.' Public outrage grew after broadcast journalist Geraldo Rivera exposed the abhorrent conditions in a video showing developmentally disabled children lying naked on the floor, many of them in their own feces.

The three-year-long legal battle against Willowbrook culminated in a 1975 consent decree mandating significant reforms; but it took years of tenacious litigation and advocacy to force officials to improve conditions and supply the funds necessary for reform. Historians David and Sheila Rothman subsequently published a detailed account of this process in their widely-read  The Willowbrook Wars . In 1983, the state of New York announced plans to close Willowbrook, and the last children left the grounds in 1987. The nationwide publicity generated by the Willowbrook case helped contribute to passage of the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act of 1980.

The ACLU's most important Supreme Court case involving the rights of people with mental illness was filed on behalf of Kenneth Donaldson, who had been involuntarily confined in a Florida State Hospital for 15 years. He was not dangerous and had received no medical treatment. In a landmark decision for mental health law in 1975, a unanimous Supreme Court ruled that states cannot confine a non-dangerous individual who can survive on his own, or with help from family and friends.

I must note that there isn't a fucking word about the criminally insane. So it would also help if you could make that connection too...

"Now obviously in the case of this man, he should have been institutionalized, but our institutions are overwhelmed with cases and have little funding, so it has become a revolving door of the mentally ill going in and going out, once stabilized."

And what is even scarier in America, is that it is so easy for them to get and have guns.

Not so sure about that governor.  As Covid cases soar, he's reversed the mask mandate in our schools.

I say public safety comes first.

Does it really?  You'll lock people up for others' safety, but won't have them mask during a pandemic?  Your opinion regarding public safety doesn't seem to mesh with the reality of your political heroes' actions.

And i bet you won’t notice much of a difference. States that have been little dictators about masks have fared about the same as states that have been lax about them.

“You'll lock people up for others' safety, but won't have them mask during a pandemic?”

The CDC found that schools in Georgia who required staff to mask saw a 39% reduction in cases over those that didn't.  Having students mask led to a 21% greater reduction in transmission.  Vic knows this, because he tried citing the study elsewhere to show that masks don't work, when the study showed that they obviously do.

So maybe we won't notice a difference, but it's entirely possible that we will, too.  We already have a shortage of teachers because so many are sick with Covid, and I keep getting a call that my son's bus (it's an auto-call, because he drives) will be late, because the driver is sick and another driver is doubling up to cover his route.  Substitute teachers, who are generally retired teachers, have been pretty much unavailable since we went back to in-person learning.

And really?  You're going to disregard that Vic is ok with  locking people up  but not with having them wear masks, for public safety?  Which one interferes with freedom more, Gazoo?

Agreed.

I have to say that the county in which charger and I live is pretty good for demanding that police try to deescalate situations, and mental health crises pretty much always involve EMS as well as police.  TBH, I would like to see social workers collaborate with police here.  I think there are times, as in the case of my neighbor, when a social worker would be more helpful to someone whose mental health endangers his own life (not others'), and police resources would be better dedicated to other issues.  The sheriff's department does daily welfare checks for the elderly and ill, which is a good service, but seems to me a better fit for social services.

That would depend on the details of the case.  We have deputies doing welfare checks for the elderly, just because they're elderly - no mental illness at all.  This would be better done by social workers, and no police officers need to be involved.  That frees LEOs up to do public safety, and has the elderly being checked on by those in a position to connect them to resources they might need - Meals on Wheels, transportation, in-home nursing or housekeeping assistance, etc.  That's not really the sheriff's office's area of expertise.

Vic, this is your comment that started this discussion on the ACLU:

How about the ACLU who filed a lawsuit for extending "rights" to the criminally in sane ?

I shot down your ACLU link that you try to pretend supports your false allegation, yet you persist. 

BTW, why have you suddenly become incapable of posting a functioning link? 

The first paragraph from O'Connor v. Donaldson - Wikipedia

O'Connor v. Donaldson , 422 U.S. 563 (1975), was a  landmark decision of the US Supreme Court in mental health law ruling that a state cannot constitutionally confine a non-dangerous individual who is capable of surviving safely in freedom by themselves or with the help of willing and responsible family members or friends. Since the trial court jury found, upon ample evidence, that petitioner did so confine respondent, the Supreme Court upheld the trial court's conclusion that petitioner had violated respondent's right to liberty . [1] [2] [3]

So, I have proven that BOTH of your links fail to support your allegation Vic.

Continuing to attempt to gaslight members here is reprehensible. 

You and yours, much to your chagrin, know damn well that I actually READ the links y'all post and that I do my own research that refutes your posits.

Michelle Go's subway death amid record rise in anti-Asian attacks leaves community reeling

Kimmy Yam     6 hrs ago
The death of Michelle Go, who was fatally shoved in front of a New York subway car on Saturday, has left the Asian American community feeling a sense of tragic loss, groups say. 

Go, who was attacked by a homeless man, Simon Martial, had been waiting for a train at the Times Square station when she was pushed from behind. Though the incident is not being investigated as a hate crime, the community is reeling, mourning and on edge against a backdrop of increased hate crimes and attacks, Asian American advocacy organizations say.

“Whether it was a hate crime or not, the reality is, Asian Americans, especially Asian American women, every time we see an incident like this, our anxiety goes up,” Sung Yeon Choimorrow, executive director of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum, told NBC Asian America. “Regardless of what the correlation is, we see ourselves in these pictures.”

Viral images show people of color as anti-Asian perpetrators. That misses the big picture.

A new analysis reveals misconceptions about perpetrators, victims, and the general environment around anti-Asian hate incidents. These can have "long-term consequences for racial solidarity," researcher Janelle Wong said.
June 15, 2021, 2:47 PM EDT
By   Kimmy Yam

While news reports and social media have perpetuated the idea that anti-Asian violence is committed mostly by people of color, a new analysis shows the majority of attackers are white.

Janelle Wong, a professor of American Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park, released   analysis   last week that drew on previously published studies on anti-Asian bias. She found official crime statistics and other studies revealed more than three-quarters of offenders of anti-Asian hate crimes and incidents, from both before and during the pandemic, have been white, contrary to many of the images circulating online.

No specifics, Vic, they come in all American shapes, sizes, colours, callings, etc. 

No specifics?  Yet you smear Trump.

I'll provide them for you, Buzz:

Just consider findings by the Spectator’s Robert Cherry. “Using 2019  FBI statistics  — the most recently available data — I computed black and white perpetrators of hate crimes as a percentage of men 18 to 44 years old in their populations,” he  reported  March 11. “The black rate was 40 percent, 76 percent and 303 percent higher than the white rate for hate crimes against the Asian/Pacific Island, Latino and LGBTQ communities respectively. Even more troubling, black rates for  hate-crime assaults  were 94 percent higher while for property destruction and vandalism, they were 14 percent lower than white rates.”

So more revelatory than the FBI data are two other studies. First, 2021 research presented in the  American Journal of Criminal Justice  found that “the race of offenders differs significantly across hate crimes against Asian Americans, African Americans, and Hispanics. Specifically, hate crimes against Asian Americans are more likely than hate crimes against either African Americans or Hispanics to be committed by non-White offenders. This finding may be attributed to animosity toward the ‘model minority’ from other minority groups.”

Then, Melissa Chen writes at the Spectator ( adapted  by the  New York Post ), “Department of Justice statistics show that while victims of violence tend to be targeted by perpetrators within their ethnicities far more than any other, Asian victims are targeted more by other races at the following rates: 27.5 percent black, 24.1 percent white, 21.4 percent Hispanic (compared to 24.1 percent Asian). This seems to suggest that the white supremacy thesis is extremely weak.”

As for “hate crimes,” “it was plain to see from viral surveillance videos [example below] that it wasn’t MAGA-hatted assailants chanting ‘Chy-na virus’ or ‘Kung Flu’ as they took out defenseless elderly Asians,” Chen also states. In fact, perpetrators of anti-Asian “hate crimes” are most likely to be young black men/teens. 




So much for the big lie that Trump caused it!

CAPAC Leaders Condemn White House Use of “China Virus”

WASHINGTON, D.C.  –  Today, leaders of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) – composed of CAPAC Chair Judy Chu (CA-27), First Vice Chair Grace Meng (NY-06), Second Vice Chair Mark Takano (CA-41) and Whip Ted Lieu (CA-33) – issued the following joint statement in response to an official White House document shared with congressional offices entitled, “How President Trump Uses the Defense Production Act to Protect Americans from the China Virus.” CAPAC Members have repeatedly denounced Donald Trump’s use of the terms “China Virus,” “Chinese Virus,” “Wuhan Virus,” “China Plague,” and “Kung Flu” due to the stigma they cause, which has already resulted in more than 2,500 anti-Asian hate crimes and incidents in recent months.

Statements by public officials referring to COVID-19 as the “Chinese virus,” “Kung Flu” or “Wu Flu” may be exacerbating the scapegoating and targeting of the AAPI community ." (LINK) ->

A total of 9,468  with 53% committed by blacks


Robbery in the US (2017)

A total of 73,764 with 54% committed by blacks




And last but not least is this:

"In an October report, the Stop AAPI Hate Reporting Center   (a leftist group) referred to Trump as the “greatest spreader among politicians of anti-Asian American rhetoric related to the pandemic.”

But the Stop AAPI Hate Reporting Center’s statistics suggest that blaming GOP rhetoric for the spike is an oversimplification of the crisis, according to Ying Ma, a conservative activist and author of the memoir “Chinese Girl in the Ghetto.” 

“The people who put out this report, along with a lot of Democratic national leaders like Joe Biden as well as others, particularly the left-wing Asian-American political leaders, they constantly blamed, they’ve repeatedly blamed former President Trump for his COVID rhetoric, they’ve repeatedly blamed white supremacists for these attacks,” Ma said. “They’ve blamed Republicans. But if you look at the two states where the highest number of attacks have come from, they’re  not Republican states . These states did not vote for Trump.”

She criticized Pelosi’s remarks on the situation, asserting that many hate-related incidents toward Asian-Americans “have actually occurred in her home district or in her backyard.”

About 35% of hate-related incidents occurred during encounters at business establishments, according to the group’s report. Some 25% occurred on a public street or sidewalk. More than 42% of the incidents targeted Chinese-Americans.

So the only people in NYC are DEMOCRATS, and there isn't anyone in NYC who can hear any anti-Asian rhetoric by Trump (you haven't denied his use of the terminology) and and nobody can possibly be affected by it, just like the Jan6 insurrectionists who all individually thought up what they wanted to do without any encouragement.

What small part of the population, Vic? Do you mean the criminal element that exists in all people? But here, let me help you with that.

This is the 2019 FBI crime stats for murder. 

800

Please take note of a few items. 1. Whites and blacks murder their own more than anyone else. Given that as a proportion of the population (white population: 234,370,202 and black population: 40,610,815), we are really talking about a very small minority of people who qualify as the underbelly of American society. 

Furthermore, if we look into this, even more, using the FBI crime stats, you can see that different races seem to do different kinds of non white collar crime. I think that the chart speaks for itself.

800

So where blacks might lead in murder and robbery *keeping in mind that it is mostly on their own, whites lead in rape, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicles theft, arson (both violent and property), and all other assaults. 

So we can all see what we want to see, but the facts speak for themselves.

Vic, here is the actual percentage is for murder and robbery:

Whites: .0154%

Blacks: .1109%

Even though blacks rank slightly higher, neither come close to even making up even 1% of their population, which means the majority of people of both races are decent. Meanwhile, you ignore all the other crimes that whites do, that adds up to more than blacks. And if you are going to draw conclusions that:

It means that a small part of the population does not share the same values as the rest of us. They don't respect law and order or common decency.

Which obviously the numbers shown are a very small part of society. Most people are decent and want a good life. You can't make a sweeping generalization about a group based on such small numbers. If so, what do you say about the fact that most serial killers and mass shooters are white? Is there something wrong with their society?

Obviously, there are many factors that go into these numbers, so one can not draw a conclusion that there is a massive failure in these groups, but rather issues that persist. No race or ethnic group is good or bad unless that is what you chose to see in them.

You put your finger on the truth quite well.  I will try to expand on it a little. Back in the day when I was on a race relations forum just about every day, (early 2000's) I did a lot of looking into crime statistics. I believe that the DOJ began to track homicides by race sometime in the mid 1970's. Ever since then it has been clear that (certain) blacks commit murder (homicide) at a rate far beyond their percentage of the overall population. In general, over the course of decades, the 12 or 13 percent of the population that is black account for roughly 1/2 of all murders. 

Its not so much a question if this is true as why it is true. 

There is a subculture of blacks that is oppositional to the society at large. These are the gangbangers and others in the urban underclass. It is true that they do lack respect for life. What the racists, including those we see everyday on Newstalkers, dont understand or dont want to admit is that America created this underclass that doesnt respect life. We created it through centuries of racism , segregation, oppression , and the rest directed at non whites. These black gangbangers and other deviants are the product of all that has come before them. They are not assimilated the way we would like and expect. 

Where the racists go wrong is when conclude there is something wrong with black culture independent from what the society at large created in them. Yes, black criminals should be held responsible for their acts, but that is not the whole answer. The answer is to approach the problem both from the need to assimilate these individuals from the perspectice of self-responsibility, AND to realize the need to end racism , to be "anti-racist". One approach without the other will fail, and has failed for many years. 

America (white America) has never accepted the fact that this has been a racist country from the beginning. There has never been a time when the majority of white Amricans have not held or expressed racially bigoted beliefs. Without that acceptance and clear desire to change by whites, the black underclass that is prone to violence will not assimilate, because they see that they are not really welcome to participate fully in "normal" American life. 

About a mile from my house is a neighborhood of Chicago that is well knwn for its white racism. Blacks are not welcome in that community.  When a Black Lives Matter march took place there in 2020 people in the neighborhood began to openly talk about moving to Indiana to get away from all the n------s. I know that because I saw it in extended family.  This also happens to be a neighborhood when a sizable part of the population are Chicago cops and firemen. 

As long as we have so much racism we will never get the black criminal underclass to assimilate. 

The racists such as we see here are doing nothing but perpetuating the problem.  And demographics heading into the future make it crystal clear that cannot just wait the situation out. America will become a less and less "white" country with every passing year.

Citing the Moynihan Report proves just how obtuse your comments have been Vic. 

The Moynihan Report documents that data of the effect in Irish families, of rural families being thrust into urban communities, which correlated with the data on the effect of urbanization on rural Black families. So instead of blaming it on RACE, as YOU do, in reality the issue illustrated by the Moynihan Report was the culture shock of rural vs. urban. 

Perhaps instead of just throwing out the Moynihan Report rhetorically, you should READ the fucking thing. I know you won't. 

Oh and BTFW Vic, the Moynihan Report also documents that the 'Black family' as a WHOLE, were NEVER in 'good shape' by your standard. Moynihan cites E. Franklin Frazier, who studied and wrote about the 'Black family' from before the Civil War to WWII. Frazier's work was done in the 1930-40s, Moynihan's in the 60's and NEITHER of them say that Black families were in 'good shape' and BOTH cite historical and SYSTEMIC discrimination as a 'root cause'.

Conservatives could never touch it, lest they be called "racists."  It took Bill Clinton to try and do something about it.


The Moynihan Report documents that data of the effect in Irish families, of rural families being thrust into urban communities, which correlated with the data on the effect of urbanization on rural Black families. So instead of blaming it on RACE, as YOU do, in reality the issue illustrated by the Moynihan Report was the culture shock of rural vs. urban. 

Perhaps instead of just throwing out the Moynihan Report rhetorically, you should READ the fucking thing. I know you won't. 


I have. It's about the destruction of the black family, caused by liberals. You need glasses.



Oh and BTFW Vic, the Moynihan Report also documents that the 'Black family' as a WHOLE, were NEVER in 'good shape' by your standard.

The man, whose name has not been released, was approached from behind and pushed onto the southbound train tracks at the Fulton subway station in Lower Manhattan at 11:20 a.m., according to a statement from the New York Police Department (NYPD).

They're not releasing any information about the victim, not even his name.  There must be a reason for that.

Usually the name of the victim is withheld until notification of NOK.  But, there are the conspiracy theorists.

Yeah, usually when the victim is dead or unconscious, but this guy had a leg injury yet he climbed back on the platform himself.  One would think his NOK know all about it by now.

There could be several reasons they weren't identified.  It could be a simple as just pointing out that there is still a problem and allowing the victim and their family peace.

I hope everyone got it. It's up to NT as to how it's going to be.
