Re: “Frederick Douglass statue damaged; police arrest two

George is it acceptable for a white person to listen to or purchase the song? Or would that also be racist?

Re: “Feedback 7/18

Its next to impossible to defeat an incumbent in NYS due to the overwhelming relationship between campaign spending amounts and winning elections. It is a self perpetuating system driven largely by special interests in both parties. 198 out of 199 is not coincidental.

Re: “Medical examiner releases overdose stats

287 deaths from overdoses is a tremendous tragedy and not something to Politicize.
The reality is that most of these deaths could be prevented with the most basic of treatment. Suboxone and Methadone have at minimum a 50% impact on Opioid addictions. Yet patients are seen in the ED for overdoses and discharged without prescriptions.
Until society changes the way addictions and addicts are viewed this problem will continue to worsen

Re: “Donald Trump and Nixon: do you see the similarity?

I see more of a similarity between Trump and Clinton where the original investigations (Whitewater and Trumps collusion with Russia) led nowhere.
The Special Prosecutors then proceeded to order Grand Jury testimony by the Presidents on subjects where they had information to support perjury charges.
There are substantial legal arguments against requiring a President to testify.
In Nixons case the Supreme Court was liberal and forced him to. In Clintons case a Conservative Court did the same.
I have doubts the current Supreme Court would decide against Trump.

Re: “School 41 to close and a new school to open in its place

I believe that the RCSD is trying to comply with the State Education Department in this instance Mark. I believe that President Obama ended the 2002 requirements you referred to.

Re: “Author Ibram X. Kendi traces America‚Äôs history of racist ideas and policies

Kendi is wrong to say there are only two explanations to explain racial disparities. (Racism or that Blacks are inferior) Actually it is more likely the result of identity politics and the attempt to secure the Black voting base 50 years ago. It was the widespread implementation of welfare that dramatically changed the Black family into a fatherless one and rewarded mothers for having children without either a job or a father in the home.
While there have been dramatic gains by the Black middle class, there is still a large segment of fatherless and non working families due to the continuing effects of generational welfare.
