NYC Mayor Eric Adams went off Tuesday on an epic racially=motivated rant at a City Hall press conference, telling a majority of white reporters: “I’m a black man that’s the mayor but my story is being interpreted by people that don’t look like me.”
“How many blacks are on editorial boards? How many blacks determine how these stories are being written?” he scolded the assembled media.
“How many Asians? How many East Asians? How many South Asians? Everyone talks about my government being diversified, what’s the diversification in the newsrooms?”
Adams was suppose to speak about his failed push in Albany to get lawmakers to side with him on his anti-crime agenda and push back on bail reform.
“If you want to acknowledge or not, I have been doing a darn good job and we just can’t live in this alternate reality,” a perturbed Adams told the press.
Adams had a message for the
newsroom bosses as well. Stating, “Diversify your newsrooms so I can look out and see people who look like me.”
This sounds like a ploy by the Adams administration to play the race card since he cannot get help from Albany or Washington, DC in his battle to fight crime in the city.
Adams doesn’t realize that his fellow democrats face a huge uphill climb in the November elections and cannot alienate any far left support by backing stronger bail reforms or stricter gun laws.
It’s not the race card Adams should be playing, he should look to play the conservative card. That’s were the country will be moving after the 2022 midterms and the state’s governor race.
On a completely different note. P.J. O’Rourke, died yesterday at the age of 74.
He was a satirical comedy writer who wrote pieces in Rolling Stone, National Lampoon and many books including my favorite “Don’t Vote! – It Just Encourages the Bastards”.
He will be missed by me and many others.
