    Entrenched racism: Neither ignorant or uneducated

    They just act like it.

    This posted on Facebook and properly attributed to Frank Leon Roberts;

    The white man who verbally assaulted Latinx women for speaking spanish in a Manhattan restaurant is an attorney with a J.D. from George Washington Law School and a B.A. from Johns Hopkins.


    The white woman who called the cops on her black Yale classmate for sleeping in a dorm is both a Ph.D. student in Philosophy at Yale as well as a licensed attorney with a J.D. from Fordham Law.


    The white woman who called the cops on a group of black folks attending a barbeque is a professor at Stanford University with a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering.


    Contrary to the popular media talking point that Trump-ea racism is most potent among lower-educated rural or southern whites, the truth of the matter is "progressives" enclaves like New York City, Connecticut, and California are bastions of white liberal racism. The fact that all of the white folks involved in these recent incidents are well-educated, "cosmopolitan" professionals (and members of the Ivory Tower) is indicative of a norm not an anomaly.

    So my question is this: How can we progress from here, when people who really should know better, both by intellect and education, are feeling free to bigot at will?

    Wow, no responses. Guess I'll keep going.

    Schlossberg

    Speaking about the Fresh Kitchen staff, he goes on to say he guesses they're not documented. "So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country. If they have the balls to come here and live off my money, I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here, the least they can do is speak English," he says.

    "If you intend on running a place in midtown Manhattan your staff should be should speak English."

    He then told Serrano to "go back to Guatemala." Serrano is of Puerto Rican descent, born in New York. At that point she said she decided to call police. While on the phone to the dispatcher, Schlossberg left, she said.
    What a freaking lunatic!

    The news came as Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. filed their complaint against Schlossberg to the New York State Unified Court System’s Departmental Disciplinary Committee — calling on the panel to investigate the attorney and possibly revoke his license.

    “I stand with Congressman Espaillat in calling for the disciplinary committee of the New York State Unified Court System to examine the attorney identified as Aaron Schlossberg’s reprehensible behavior and review his law license for possible revocation,” said the Bronx borough president.

    If the complaint is found to have merit, the court system will either “sanction, censure, suspend or recommend disbarment,” a unified court system official told The Post. Schlossberg, who has been a member of the bar since 2003, has no disciplinary record.

    And back in 2016;

    “What country you from? I’m gonna call the police,” Schlossberg says to Morris back in October 2016, according to cellphone footage of the incident, which was posted to YouTube.

    “You don’t run into people. I’m a citizen here. You’re not. You’re an ugly f—king foreigner, so f—k you!” Schlossberg shouts at Morris — who filmed the video — before raising up his cellphone to “get a quick picture” of Morris.

    “You’re not allowed to walk on the wrong side of the street,” Schlossberg then says.

    A stunned Morris then films himself and says: “This guy just literally just ran into me and is going crazy.”
    .................. "foreigner" is from Massachusetts.

    Here's another fun guy. Link

    "This piece and others were written under a psuedonym, but Anton was quickly identified as their author; emphasis mine):"

    [One] source of Trump’s appeal is his willingness — eagerness — gleefulness! — to mock the ridiculous lies we’ve been incessantly force-fed for the past 15 years (at least) and tell the truth. “Diversity” is not “our strength”; it’s a source of weakness, tension and disunion. America is not a “nation of immigrants”; we are originally a nation of settlers, who later chose to admit immigrants, and later still not to, and who may justly open or close our doors solely at our own discretion, without deference to forced pieties. Immigration today is not “good for the economy”; it undercuts American wages, costs Americans jobs, and reduces Americans’ standard of living. Islam is not a “religion of peace”; it’s a militant faith that exalts conversion by the sword and inspires thousands to acts of terror — and millions more to support and sympathize with terror.

    A giant douche who definitely voted for tRump. Lots of stuff here...just posting 2 examples.

    Aaron Schlossberg: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
    Security at the Madison Avenue building where Schlossberg has an office told the Daily News that he was barred from the building. “If he comes here, we’re going to kick him out,” an unnamed security guard told the newspaper.

    But Schlossberg shouted, “false,” to reporters when asked about that Thursday morning.

    He was wrong about that. Hayim Grant, the president of Corporate Suites, the company that operates the business center at 275 Madison Avenue where Schlossberg rented space, told the New York Post, “We have terminated his services agreement with us.” He added he was “completely shocked,” by the video, saying, “His actions are just not consistent with our community and rules and regulations … It’s totally contrary to everything we believe in as a company and personally.”

    [...]

    On his Linkedin profile, Aaron Schlossberg says he studied abroad in Madrid, Spain, while in college. He also writes that he speaks four languages, French, Hebrew, Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. On his law firm’s website, Schlossberg promotes his ability to speak those languages to his clients.

    “Aaron M. Schlossberg doesn’t seem to mind people who speak other languages when he can make money from them,” one Twitter user commented. Another seconded that statement, tweeting, “For the record, I’d like to point out that when the ball bag Aaron M. Schlossberg wants your money, he gladly speaks numerous languages.” And a third tweeted, “Anyone else notice Schlossberg’s website? Does he call ICE after he takes your money? #DespicableHumanBeing”

    With any luck, Aaron is done. His landlord kicked him out, Yelp has shut down his page while they sort through all the ratings he's gotten lately. Hopefully he'll be hounded into hiding.
    Thanks from BDBoop
