The Appalling Hypocrisy of Black Leaders in NYC.
There are things that happen in this city, that elicit an immediate outcry from black leaders, once they occur. And then there are things that happen, where these same leaders stay awfully quiet, when they shouldn't. Last week we saw this play out once again.
On East 125th Street in Harlem, a young white male was struck by a car, while running to avoid being robbed and beaten by a group of young kids of color. The young man subsequently died from the injuries he suffered. He happened to be a student of New York University on his way home.
Up to this point in time, the only black leader -as far as I know- to have publicly condemned what happened, is Eric Adams ( running for State Senate/ Brooklyn's 20th). I truly believe, that if the colors were reversed in this incident, the city would have seen protest-marches, wherein so-called black leaders and (s)elected officals, would have stood on public platforms shouting in pious indignation. What a bunch of hypocrites.
