While you will look racist and uneducated to look down upon lower or working class Blacks or Hispanics it will cost you no diversity points to look down with complete disdain at the working class residents of Staten Island. You have the green light to trash Staten Island and its residents at any time.
Very good and accurate observation. SI has a lot of Italians and a lot of Catholics, two groups that the Politically Correct LOVE to put down.

So much for all their BS about tolerance and diversity.

Wu tang does not represents the majority of Staten Islanders, but a very miniscule part of it. If you want to know what represents Staten Islanders, read page 4, #39 post of this segment. We want to be represented by history, literature, museums, good people, and good neighbors, with family values, and we have all of that and more!!!!! I would rather have Ricky Schroeder and Christina Aguilera, both born here, to reprent me, that Wuuuuuuuu tangggggg!
