Most likely a progressive liberal Democrat.

They've generally been black teenagers attacking older white people. These gutless cowards try to knock people out in a surprise attack.

Im assuming this councilwoman is black because only a black person could get away with saying such inflammatory and racist things. I wonder how long blacks will be a special, protected class in America. Such insanity doesn't seem sustainable.

No, in fact many attacks have not been against Jews. These thugs surely can't distinguish Jews from non-Jews in most cases. They just see an easy white target in most cases. The Jews in that area however have been effective in launching a media campaign to bring publicity to the attacks specifically in their neighborhoods, something other people in other neighborhoods should likely copy.

Then if they aren't specifically targeting Jews, then this would be a pointless comment for someone to make. Obviously this councilwoman is stuck in the 90s when there were serious tensions between the Jews and Dominicans (I believe, though I could be incorrect, I don't remember that chunk of city history all that well off the top of my head.)

I really don't want to believe that humans would say such a stupid thing. I have never met a person who thinks that way. Where are people like that located?

Don't know Brooklyn that well?

The Jews in Crown Heights are not "normal" Jews but are Hasidim, who dress and look very distinct (on the men black suits all year round, hats always, long sideburns -- the women are less uniformed but can be recognized on sight very easily too -- white blouses, long black skirts, etc.). You can totally tell Hasidim from non-Hasidim, and that's who is being targeted for the most part.

The black community in Crown Heights has a long history of crime against the Jewish/Hasid community there including a really nasty riot. Granted the "knockout game" is a wider phenomenon with whites as a whole being the targets, but in Crown Heights there is definitely an anti-semitic element as well.

Granted the councilwoman should be put up against the proverbial (literal is too much to hope for) wall for trying to justify this kind of barbarity, but it is true that there is a lot of resentment of the Jewish community because the Hasidim have a ton of kids and are thus constantly expanding and putting pressure on neighboring populations of renters as a result. Same thing happens in other areas: Borough Park pushing into Midwood (people are probably least aware of that one since the people being displaced are Russian & less observant Jews who are dying out or leaving anyway as the Hasidim move in), South Williamsburg building up and pressing against its edges, Crown heights ditto. Of course, in the other areas people don't respond with random violence against innocent people.
