Carol Platt Liebau: Not So Happy In Harlem?

Not So Happy In Harlem?

Is this true -- that African Americans are protesting and blaming Bill Clinton, the "first black president," for having gentrified Harlem to the point where some now can't afford to live there?

And if it is true, why are we reading about it only in a British newspaper?

Blacks should be blaming Clinton [and the Democratic Party] for, among other things, killing school voucher reform during his eight years in office. By doing so, the boy president thus help condemned hundreds of thousands of minority children to a stunted education - and life.

Atta boy, Slick Willey. The KKK couldn't have done better than you in keeping the blacks down.

As an aside.

Carol doies a great job bringing these articles to our attention. Granted they tend to be from a republican point of view. But then I do believe there are sufficient articles from the other point of view.

For that effort she is subject to some pretty nasty character assassination. Lately her husband has been dragged into the trash being thrown about.

As for me, I will continue to read this superb blog. I will comment directly on the articlas -- and disagree with them is I want. I will not, however get drawn into the neverending trash throwing that some seem to delight in.

Carol - lkeep up the good work.

I can handle a little trash talk, but what's her husband got to do with any of this?
