Take, for instance, Michael Bloomberg, the Mayor of New York.
"Appearing with host John Gambling on New York City’s WOR, Mayor Mike Bloomberg attacked opponents of the city’s so-called ‘stop and frisk’ program. 'It’s society’s job to make sure that no one group is disproportionately represented as potential perpetrators,' Bloomberg said. 'I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.'
“Most crimes in our city – serious crimes – are committed by male, minorities 15 -25,” Bloomberg told Gambling. 'When it comes to policing, the police have to be able to go out and stop, look for, those that fit the description of a witness or a victim after a crime.”' [Source]
"Disproportionately stop whites"? I don't think that there is a single person in New York who believes that statement. In fact, I don't think the Mayor believes it himself.
Finally, republicans really need to get some perspective when it comes to labeling who is a terrorist.
"State Rep. Bill Zedler gave new meaning to the term “lower chamber” when he tweeted, shortly after Democrats successfully put off a vote on the bill, 'We had terrorist in the Texas State Senate opposing SB 5.'"
Not so Mr. Zedler. In fact, you and your fellow wingnut brothers running things in Texas represent something far more terrifying than a woman standing for eleven hours in her tennis shoes ever could.
