Dying for a Cigarette in New York

If you’re wondering why New York City police officers keep turning their back on Mayor Bill de Blasio, let’s review parts of the mayor’s recent speech on the Eric Garner case that have been removed from the “Official Website of the City of New York.”

De Blasio said:

“I was at the White House the other day, and the president of the United States turned to me and he said that [De Blasio son] Dante reminded him of what he looked like as a teenager.”

Why does Obama think every black teenager looks like him? Does he think they all look alike?

“He said, I know, you see this crisis through a very personal lens and I said to him, I did. Because (de Blasio wife) Chirlane and I have had to talk to Dante for years about the dangers that he may face. Good young man, law-abiding young man, never would think to do anything wrong and yet because of the history that still hangs over us, the dangers he may face,”

What dangers might lurk in New York City for a young black male?
