Youíre declaring personal limited experience as law. Can you cite statistics or specific studies proving that this is a trend?

Otherwise youíre a bigot hiding behind her Puerto Rican friends. White racists will say terrible things, and then claim to have African Americans best friends.
Lay off of the racist rhetoric, as if only white people can be racist. You say a lot of ignorant things too. You don't get a pass because you're black.

Cool it. I would love to see statistics on how Dominican immigrants and their children are doing in the u.s.

I know of a Dominican couple that grew up in the Bronx and now have moved up and are living in Westchester in a middle class neighborhood with three little ones. Very nice people. Actually the wife is half Puerto Rican and half Dominican, and the husband is fully Dominican.

I guess if you are framing it in that context, USA society etc. But I would think most Dominicans/those of Dominican descent would be slightly offended by being called "little brothers." Especially considering DR at least is it's own country and PR is a US colony.

Yeah, Dominicans live in some of the worst neighborhoods in the city, and Dominican guys in upper Manhattan and The Bronx are often getting busted for selling drugs. I am not bashing Dominicans, but they seem to have social ills that largely overlap with those of Puerto Ricans.

Then quote me on anything I have said is racist and I will take it back.

Because I will condemn anything racist period.

Youíre trying to deflect from the attention certain whites people (not all) on this forum have said the most vile things about poor people and people of color.

Then if you can present statistics and a study that explains this alleged disparity, please present it. If not there is absolutely no reason to mention in. Since you have no proof. The whole city is not based on what you see as a social worker.

Two years ago you did not know Harlem or Bedstut had gentrified. But then you yourself made a post expressing shock at the gentrification.

You also claimed most Puerto Ricanís were pure white, based on a couple of photos and a quick vacation you had in San Juan.

Even so, that doesn't make her racist. You throw that word around far too often.
Just makes you sound ignorant.
