[ - ] Was out in the Rockaways this afternoon by 87th street. The street has an amazing amount of young white hipster looking people walking down toward the beach. I think they are coming out from Manhattan for the day although I see some thirty somethings bought houses on that street trying to make it seem like Manhattan Beach in CA. hehe. The icing on the cake was a girl who I guess was a 20 something and the girl was walking around in an itsy bitsy string bikini (picture a teeny triange covering the crotch) around the projects and shopping center on 87th street. SO out of place for the Rockaways. Unreal. Maybe she was European but she wasn't in the know for sure. 34 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You're cute. You know that people have bought all those homes in the Rockaways as beach houses and are making a killing b/c the prices are going up and up. this has been going on for at least 5 years. What's your point? [ Reply | More ]

To be honest, I'm really surprised "they're making a killing." There is no sea wall there. Be ready for your house to be demolished when the bay meets the ocean as it does every decade or so. Look up Sandy photos after Sandy for the most recent evidence of it being little more than a sand bar. No. I wrote because I was utterly taken aback by a young blond and very very white woman walking around nearly naked in that area. The regular residents were taken aback as well, I'm positive.

It hurts Clinton that he attributes the DNC email link to the Russians.

Quit being so naive. It's a pure numbers game. As it happens, blacks vote around 90 to 95% Democrat in any given election, while "hispanics" (a broad category, but good enough for some purposes) split Dem around 30-70 to 35-65. So obviously, increasing their share of the vote implies increasing the number of votes for Democrats. That's the simple calculus here. [ Reply | More ]

Saying so won't make it so. It's relevant because people group themselves into racial categories and because those categories have predictive value.

What do you think of Trump supporters calling BLM protesters domestic terrorists? Doesn't sound like they like black and brown people so much to me. The whole RNC was overwhelmingly white. There is a major reason for that. Trump has to convince everyone that there's a common enemy, and if he wants to be the "law and order" candidate, he has to blame the black people, and if he needs to be anti-immigrant he needs to be against brown people. I've never seen a candidate in my lifetime split this nation down the middle by racial and party lines. It's disgusting. [ Reply | More ]

He knows what he's doing, though. He doesn’t want the support of serious politicians, he’s looking at top line and bottom line numbers, which are votes. Strategically, it’s a short-term play. It ends once election season ends. He needs to acquire, at a rapid rate, every last voter that he can; he doesn’t need to keep them convinced forever, only until November. That's why the trolls are out. They are just trying to beat the drum every single day, as loudly as possible. [ Reply | More ]
