Please, every major city has certain sections where different minorities live. If it was so segregated, howcome I see so many white people now in Harlem when I commute? Upper Manhattan and the south Bronx are being gentrified like no tomorrow. Don't call a city segregated unless you have lived there and seen all the areas, including the typical run down areas.

Yep, cuz we all know that 9-11 was a failure of the NYPD.

You're an idiot. Maybe if u stepped outside your small town in Kentucky and were more open to other places other than NYC u'd see how retarded you just sounded. Just cause your Kentucky boonie town is not diverse and New York City is does not mean other cities are not melting pots. Quit being so narrow minded and get out more. Just cause NYC has something, does not mean other cities don't. It's so funny how ignorant some people can be.
