definitely dumb. Whatever you give them its never enough. No matter what you do you are always being racist, and setting up “apartheid situations” and treating them unfairly. Go figure

“Hassidim receive preferential treatment from the authorities”. I’m not sure if I should laugh or cry at this statement. Police and meter maids in Crown Heights have historically been aggressive towards the Jewish community. The police truck outside 770 is for SHOW purposes only. Meanwhile, drive or walk by any Black church in and around Crown Heights on a Sunday, and you will see cars double parked for an entire block, scott free. The so-called “riots” were a POGROM. It was an attack on JEWS, with Blacks holding up signs that read “Hitler didn’t finish the job”. Al Sharpton should… Read more »

"bitter public debate"?

Let’s see: Rabbi Krinsky says”Crown Heights is a model community of integration where whites and blacks live in peace together.” On the other side the doctor guy says “The Hasidim set up an apartheid situation in Crown Heights,” and “You’ve got to be blind, deaf and dumb not to know about the problems here with the Hasidim.” Yet somehow Time concludes that “they have engaged in a bitter public debate in which heated rhetoric far outweighs the language of reason and compromise.” as if somehow both views are equally divisive etc. There’s your “unbiased” media at work.

Big fat lying article!

Shallow and not true about the antagonism between the blacks and the Lubavitchers – and especially not now since the riots.
You can see the cup half full or half empty. Silly article.

Crown st public school

Parents double park at that public school any given time of the day the street can be lined up with ,try calling the police to come and do something they never show up. Many complaints have been made with no results, and if one of us is double parked in you can call and call the police do not care about the Jews in crown heights.

The money and brains behind the civil rights movement of the 1960’s was all Jewish. Today, the person behind “Black Lives Matter” is a Liberal communist Jew named George Soros.

What do Jews get in return for standing up for Blacks?

You guessed it: more Anti-Semitism. We got Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, and a pogrom in our backyard. Blacks also happen to be one of the most outspoken Anti-Israel groups.

Yet the Leftist Jews will never learn until they themselves are eaten by th monster they created.

The black community is 90% of CH, how can this be in “us” against them thing? So many media lies in this little price. Shop keeper to close on shabbos…what the heck are they talking about? this is frum community – all the Jews close their shops by choice. And the none Jewish shots, even on Kingston Ave could be open no one could care. I can’t believe this Doctor who’s been here for 36 years carry all this anger…but work off…dishonesty. Sadly, their leadership has not been able to educate and be honest with their community and to what… Read more »

You are correct….on both accounts. But sadly this kinda stuff happens very often. They paint the picture the way they want people to see it,rather then the true incident

Is it genuine or does it have motive behind it?
