Those people are filthy scum.

Unpopular opinion....hmmm.

We don't need a Starbucks on every other corner or some other type of frou frou coffee shop. We also don't need another organic, artisinal, brunch place. They'll just be closed in a year or two anyway.

Whoa. Talk about unpopular. Hasidim to Jews is like Mennonites to Christians....just weird insular sects that make religion seem crazy.

I find Hasidim near impossible to communicate with, and NEVER feel comfortable around them. Trust me, they watch 'outsiders' like hawks. When I see them burn bread in trash cans or stage those gruesome live chicken massacres, it infuriates me. They have no regard for anyone outside of their community.

Not to be confused with Orthodox Jews.

No need for weird insular sects to make religions seem crazy. The mainstream religions do the crazy well enough all by themselves.

Totally agree.. I struggled more where I came from and did well here. Not tough.. Just a bunch of grouchy *******s trying to pound their chests.

It wasn't meant to compare any groups. But if it seemed that way, I apologize for causing misunderstanding.
Why would you apologize? You didn't mention black people in your post at all. Stop cowing to this "weaponized racism" nonsense. That poster needs to take his or her racist world-view glasses off and start seeing reality for once. You were not the problem. Stop giving in to this crap people!

I wonder why this reads like a coping response rather than a cogent criticism.

There should be 250,000-500,000 people having concealed carry pistol permits in the city, and regularly carrying.
