WASHINGTON D.C.' S MARION BARRY MAKES TRULY IDIOTIC STATEMENTS - BUT THAT IS TO BE EXPECTED - SAYING IT COULD BE HIS LAST BLUNDER IS SHORT-SIGHTED
POSTED RESPONSES TO A COLUMN BY KONRAD YAKABUSKI IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
"...politician's latest blunder could prove to be his last..."
I very much doubt it.
You know, there is no cure for stupidity.
And this guy's pathetic constituents have stuck with him through scandal after scandal.
"The puzzle is why can't a black person (with very few exceptions) not start or run a business however small ?"
That is a very true observation.
Of course, there are some who do, but the number has always been remarkably small.
And this hatred of hard-working Korean or Chinese immigrants who do immediately start small businesses in run-down neighborhoods is not new.
Of course, it is doubly stupid because in many cases such little businesses bring to a neighborhood goods and services which did not previously exist. Imagine being without a grocery store and not having a car in a sprawling run-down area?
Ghettos across America are notable for their lack of stores. Big companies do not like the crime risks, blacks often do not fill the need, but Asian migrants come and offer a needed service.
A couple of decades back, there was a much publicized event in New York with groups of blacks literally terrorizing a Korean grocer for weeks.
Their reason: they thought he was too vigilant of some of them concerning shoplifting.
