And I'm not aware of a libertarian candidate who has run for office in NYC.

If a candidate ran on a drug legalization platform, and he also wanted to change NYC's gun licensing laws I'd be all for it. I'm against mass incarceration.

And if they wanted to have further reforms to welfare, such as further project conversions to co-ops or otherwise privately owned buildings I'd be for that as well.
Giuliani and Bloomberg would be dictators if given the choice. It almost became true for Bloomberg.

(Maybe you just think of it as not safe because it's mostly black people living there?? )
Also, an area can can certainly go through white flight without becoming dangerous. Bensonhurst went through white flight and it's still a safe neighborhood.

As for that map though, it's a little misleading because it has Jackson Heights shaded the same as Brownsville and East New York.

Yes, true.

Sunnyside and Woodside also experience white flight and they remain safe neighborhoods. If anything they are more expensive now than they ever were.

This is just the US, but it happened in the Caribbean as well.
So you agree, they were not paid.

What about the insurance companies that had policies on these plantations?

Do you really not know this, or are you trying to be obnoxious and offensive?

Bensonhurst did *NOT* experience white flight. Italians decided to leave for greener pastures and more space. Not the same thing in the slightest.

But they became Asian neighborhoods. Not black.

Please. Jewish people in the Bronx decided to leave for greener pastures and more space too. As did white people in Bed Stuy and Brownsville too.

What's a comparable white neighborhood to those neighborhood? For that matter, what is crime?

You yourself smoke marijuana recreationally. That is ILLEGAL in NYS. You're buying it illegally and consuming it illegally.

Saying there's more crime in Black neighborhoods is a very simple minded (and I do mean simple as in low IQ) of saying Black people are "bad". But these small words for for little children and special ed cases.

Back to you Mr. hypocrite, you clearly aren't worried about people following the law all the time since you break it all the time.

I think there should be a get together of forum conservatives. I would love to see G-Dale smoking a blunt in front of Airborneguy. Airborneguy, would you arrest any of your fellow conservatives like G-Dale if they recreationally used a banned substance in your presence?
