  • Queens Man Cuffed for Pushing Straphanger Onto Harlem Subway Tracks; Yelled, 'I Hate White People'

    11/23/2016 2:54:37 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 62 replies
    Cops busted a Queens man for trying to push a straphanger onto the subway tracks in Harlem and yelling, “I hate white people!” Police cuffed Gary Weeks, 51, of Wavecrest for the bizarre attack Monday at 2 p.m. at the 4-5-6 subway station at 125th St. and Lexington Ave., officials said. The straphanger was waiting for a northbound train when Weeks walked up to him and tried to push him onto the tracks. The victim got away from Weeks, as other people started pointing and yelling at the attacker to simmer down. He then began yelling about his hatred for...

    The black community isn’t despondent or angry. ‘If Trump can go in there and shake things up,’ one man says, ‘I’d like that.’ By JASON L. RILEY, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL This may come as a shock to the political left, but not everyone who opposed Donald Trump is as angry or despondent as the demonstrators who grabbed headlines nationwide over the past week or the pundits who intellectualized the Democratic hissy fit. On Monday I took a stroll around New York City’s Harlem neighborhood and asked a couple of dozen black residents to respond to the election and subsequent...

    A 93-year-old woman robbed in East Harlem says she doesn't know how she'll pay her bills this month after a thief ran off with $600 in cash she had just taken out of the bank. "I feel terrible, and just keep thinking about it," Maria Vasquez told WABC, a local ABC affiliate. She says she planned to use the money to pay for her monthly bills and now worries about how she'll get by, WABC reports. "I need that money, because my husband passed away seven years ago. Until the money comes next month, I'm not sure how I'm going...

    A fundraising email sent out by a candidate running for New York City’s City Council has sparked controversy amid accusations of anti-Semitism and racial incitement. The man at the center of the controversy, Thomas Lopez-Pierre, denies claims his campaign’s rhetoric is anti-Semitic, prominently featuring a 2014 article on his website entitled “Fighting Jewish Slumlords Isn’t Anti-Semitic”. Lopez-Pierre is running for the 7th district seat in the NYC City Council, challenging incumbent and fellow Democrat Mark Levine. […] Lopez-Pierre has repeatedly cited “greedy Jews” in his campaign, including a fundraising email earlier this month calling on supporters to help “Save Harlem...

  • Fall of the House of Rangel-Espaillat Tops Wright to Replace Retiring Congressman

    Congressman Charles Rangel was swift-footed and savvy enough to stay ahead of demographic and geographic shifts in his district during his 46 years in the House of Representatives—but in the end, he just didn’t have enough juice to anoint an heir. Harlem Assemblyman Keith Wright lost his bid to replace his retiring 86-year-old mentor to State Senator Adriano Espaillat, who challenged Rangel in 2012 and 2014 but fell short. After a bitter Democratic primary campaign—one with heavy ethnic overtones—the Dominican Republic-born Espaillat beat the African-American Wright in the upper Manhattan-based district by approximately 1,300 votes. Former White House aide Clyde...

    Nine candidates are vying for Rep. Charles Rangel's seat — a position he's held for nearly a half-century — but only one stood beside him as he cast his vote in Harlem on Tuesday. "For the first time in 46 years I couldn't find my name!" Rangel said as he stepped out of his polling site at Public School 175 on W. 134th St. "But I'm so glad I did find his name," he added, nodding towards Assemblyman Keith Wright, whom Rangel endorsed as his successor. New Yorkers in seven congressional districts in four boroughs — Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx...

    Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel has found himself in a bit of a pickle. After years of allegedly thumbing his nose at pesky things like rules, his supposed misdeeds may be coming back to bite him on the proverbial hind quarter. A House ethics committee subpanel today found Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel guilty of 11 of the 13 charges of ethics violations against him. The panel, composed of four Democrats and four Republicans, emerged after private deliberation to announce their findings.

    "All they said was just, 'Run, run, run, run,'" one commuter recalled. "People getting stampeded, getting trampled, bags flying. It's crazy right now" Dozens of commuters ran out of a crowded Manhattan subway station Tuesday morning after one straphanger thought someone claimed to have a gun, according to the NYPD. Straphangers stampeded out of the Central Park North - 110th Street subway station in Harlem at about 9 a.m. in what police are calling mass hysteria. Authorities said the commotion spurred from a fight between two people on a 2 train. It's not clear what led straphangers to believe someone...

    Next week, Democratic voters in Harlem and upper Manhattan will do something they haven’t done in a long time: vote in a congressional election that doesn’t include Rep. Charles Rangel. After more than 40 years, the lion of Harlem is retiring. Without an incumbent, the race in the 13th Congressional District is more competitive than usual, though it's still taking place somewhat quietly. Traditionally low turnout even in competitive congressional races means that each vote carries extra weight. No matter who wins, Rangel’s replacement will mark a shift for a changing district. A change in representation for a changing district...

    Greg Nash Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) said on Wednesday that he still plans to retire at the end of the year, saying that he wants to leave office at the same time as the first black president. "I wanted so badly to complete the last year with President Obama," the 85-year-old Democrat said during a radio interview with WCBS 880. "And even though they never gave him a fair opportunity to do all the things that I really had dreamed that we could do together, I would be so annoyed with myself had I retired a couple of years...

    It’s primary day in New York and as many voters scramble to cast their ballots before, during, and after work, some are also running into unfortunate circumstances. It’s not often that New Yorkers’ votes are pivotal in a presidential primary and many at polling places across the state are determined to make their’s count.... At one polling site at Carlton Avenue and Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, the site coordinator didn’t even bother to show up and it took about an hour-and-a-half to find a replacement so the poll could open. Television and radio contributor John Burnett took to Twitter to...

    A Harlem church is certainly having its trials and tribulations. The controversial World Atlah Church on Lenox Ave. and 123rd infamous for its anti-gay and anti-Obama messages on its billboard - may go up for public auction thanks to its deep debts. The house of worship owes at least $1 million to creditors, including unpaid city water and sewage bills, according to documents obtained by DNAInfo, which first reported the story. A state judge ordered the church into a public foreclosure auction on Feb. 24, the website said. But its pastor, James Manning, says his flock is being fleeced. "We're...

  • Our Most Divisive Political Issue

    12/26/2015 4:58:56 AM PST · by Kaslin · 74 replies
    Can you name the most contentious issue in American politics? Here's a hint. It's being fought at the federal, state and local levels. And it doesn't go away. The struggle is persistent, ongoing, unending. Here is a second hint. The issue is not gay marriage, or gun control, or police brutality and or immigration. Those issues are either settled, largely settled, isolated or completely out of the control of local and state governments. Here is a third hint. The issue divides Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals. But it is especially divisive among Democrats and among people who call themselves...

    Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson brought his message of self-reliance to the neighborhood on Wednesday during a campaign lunch with local business and religious leaders at Sylvia's. “What has happened traditionally, particularly since the 60’s, is you’ve got certain people saying, ‘There, there you poor little thing, you can’t take care of yourself, we are going to take care of you,’” he told reporters before sitting down for the meal, which was closed to the press. “And we got people who believe that they can't survive on their own, which is absolutely ridiculous.” The GOP hopeful, who was one...
