The GOP’s Tired, Poor Huddled Masses




They want to push blacks out of New York and back into the slave wage south, or into certain segregated corners of the city, then redraw the congressional districts to include historically racist communities (Howard Beach), so no authentically black or pro-worker candidate emerges. These people want to destroy unions, the New Deal, Great Society, Civil Rights, WIC program, food stamps, section 8 etc.
The new House negro Democrats with their Bill Cosby speeches (promoted by racist, claiming to represent the black masses), Neo-Cons, and fascist republicans have one thing in common: They love to scapegoat black people for everything.
They would like to blame black people for the financial depression and the taxes they have to pay to the FED. They like to blame us for the conditions we live in.
Well, I got news for house negroes. Whether they realize it or not, their treachery and capitulation is giving tacit support for fascist republicans and Wall st. Democrats who want to commit economic genocide/Darwinism against the people!
"Black population surges in East New York as it falls across the borough and city"  
Thursday, May 10, 2012
A surge in the number of black residents has made East New York one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Brooklyn, even as the black population across the borough and citywide fell dramatically.
The black population increased by 13% in East New York from 2000 to 2010, according to a new analysis of census data by the Department of City Planning - absorbing many residents who were priced out of other neighborhoods as the borough’s black population fell by 6%.
Moving out of neighborhoods like Bedford Stuyvesant, some black residents left the city altogether, decamping for the suburbs or the South - but many of those who stayed in the borough ended up in East New York.
Many described the move as a last resort.
“In Bed Stuy it used to be a lot of black and Latinos and the rent wasn’t bad...It used to be easy to find an apartment in Bed Stuy, but now the landlords don’t want to accommodate people in government programs because they have a demand from white people,” said Jasmine Bennett, 32, who moved from Bed Stuy to East New York two years ago.
Bennett, a stay-at-home mom, moved because she couldn’t find an apartment big enough for herself and her husband and eight kids that would take Section 8 benefits.
She now regrets it, citing high levels of violence in East New York. “I don’t like it here for my kids. I don’t even like going to the park. If I had known how bad it is here, I would have tried to stay in the three bedroom apartment in Bed Stuy,” she said.
“I know I can’t afford to go back there. I'm thinking about moving out of New York."
The East New York numbers mirror an opposite pattern in neighborhoods in Central Brooklyn.
In the western part of Bedford Stuyvesant, the white population shot up 634%, while blacks fell 14.6% - from 69% of the population to less than half. Northern Crown Heights lost more than 10,000 black residents, a 12% drop, while the white population grew 186%. Similar changes took place in Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, Prospect Heights, and Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
Besides East New York, Canarsie and Flatlands have gained many new black residents.
Holly Hall, 28, was apartment hunting in East New York Thursday, planning to move from Crown Heights, where she has trouble affording her $1200 a month rent.
“The only reason people are moving out of Crown Heights is that the rent is too high,” she said. “The high rents are pushing us to East New York and Brownsville. I can’t even afford Bed Stuy. They’re going to cram all the black people out here.”
Black residents seeking a neighborhood they can afford have also moved to East New York from other parts of the city.
“This is the cheapest place you can live, and that’s because people are getting shot and robbed,” said Jason Turner, 24, who moved from Queens five years ago.
Some are considering following the thousands of black residents who left Brooklyn over the last ten years - a net migration of 121,597 people.
"I'm planning on moving out of the city--out of the state even,” said Alisha Fields, who moved to the neighborhood from Astoria five years ago. “The rent here is going up and up, and at the end of the day people won’t be able to live anywhere.”


The Green Party Would have done better trying to enlist Chris Hedges as a candidate rather than Roseanne Barr [Bizarre]. If she ends up the Green's Pres candidate who will take the Green Party seriously? How will she not be compared to the Green's version of Sarah Palin??!!
Of course Hedges Perfectly lays out the argument against Obama{Romney}Care [especially its mandate that forces everyone to buy Corp so-called 'health' insurance] & for Medicare for ALL!
