    I’m from Brooklyn and had a first hand view on how David ‘Dummy’ Dinkins was the worst mayor we ever had until Bill DeBlASSHOLE made him second place.

    gotta say it…why is he the only? seeing how ny is so diversified and all!

    • @rollin’ stoned ok than whats your point? I’ll wait…..

    • @rollin’ stoned lol what bs? They don’t vote for black people??? Maybe it’s because not that many of them run for mayor idk.

    • @Modding Thomas of them? what do mean by that? you mean people of color? yes of course you do…you might as well have said those people!

    • @rollin’ stoned Maybe if you weren’t such a racist more black people would be comfortable running for office. But please tell me how the Godfather’s Pizza guy was a race traitor and deserved to die. I’m not the one whining about how the presence of black people is affecting my life; psycho.

    He was one of the worse mayor’s in NYC and he never defeated Guliani. Guliani came after and cleaned NYC inside out get the history straight!!

  20. It’s a shame his reputation will forever be marred by forbidding police to stop rioters that ultimately killed a holy Jewish man.
