Thanks Pierrepont. People don't know that Jews wield plenty of influence in many industries throughout NYC and this nation. Folks cant be upset, Jews work, work hard, believe in family and education, save money and spend within their own community. Thus getting a job in high places, or a profession of esteem like doctor or lawyer.
Just because a Jewish person says something does not make it true.

NYC real estate laws are not for Jews only and you cannot pass laws for one group only in America. Also non Jewish white people would never tolerate this, nor would none whites,

With that said today if some co-op board denied someone because of their race or religion one could get a private lawyer and sue provided there is evidence.

Trump does so many dumb things that it's just business as usual. But if he does something severe such as the travel ban, there will be a lot of noise from the left.

If Trumpcare passes, believe me that the left will not be quiet.
Trump is not the first white Republican president nor will he be the last.

The travel ban is just standard stuff Republican politicians say to get votes, but the party always finds a way not to deliver.

It's business as usual and Trump may get reelected.

I think the problem is you keep saying Jews like they are the borg. Shosanarose is a social worker and here you are telling her all Jews are rich when she's a social worker. She isn't the only Jewish social worker,k-12 teacher, or other comparatively low paid jobs. One can even find Jewish people working in small businesses for little money. Shosanarose had even talked about lot of Hasidic on welfare. I think it is offensifor you to paint them all with one broad brush and too constantly bring up Jews when the media, real estate, or Wall Strest are mentioned. None of those things have anything to do with Shosanarose.

Sometimes wonder if I'm in Riverdale on Saturdays seeing so many Jews during Shabbat or whatever. Can also tell you there are a large number of Jewish landlords in NY, so am not sure why you're so offended by that comment. It's a good business to be in. Jews *DO* play a large role in NY real estate and have now for years.

Am thinking it's neither. Bronxguyanese is partially correct. Shoshanarose is just oversensitive.
It is typical anti-Semitic language to say that Jews "control" this or that.

Coop boards are allowed to deny/not approve someone and don't have to give a reason.
You do that math.
People get denied for race and religion all the time in reality.
It's just hard to prove, so hard to sue.

Can tell you that by *control*, meaning having a great influence in such an industry. Can say it's true. Not all Jews of course, but many invest in real estate and turn great profits.

Okay. Jewish-Americans have a very high rate of college education. The vast majority of Jewish-Americans are college-educated.
As a result, Jews in America are over-represented in almost ALL the professions.

So, one could say that Jews have a great influence in:

medicine
law (3 on the Supreme Court)
academia
journalism
teaching
social work
psychology
writing
art
music
pop culture
acting
real estate
banking
engineering
...
