Setting the Record Straight: Crown Heights Jews Vs. Blacks

by

Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo-crown heights-brooklyn-new york-2013
Regarding: NYC Councilwoman-elect blames “knockout game” on FEAR OF JEWS

Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo said what she meant and meant what she said. It was her that made the connection between the ‘Knock Out’ and what her fellow blacks were telling her. She made this connections because in her head it made total sense.

After reading the comments of Crownheights.info and Collive.com regarding this issue, there isn’t much more I can add.

I will just take the time to straight the record straight with some facts:

Fact: 30-35 years ago, the Crown Heights neighborhood was bursting with Jews. Crown Heights was ALL Jewish. The blacks came to live in a Jewish neighborhood. The blacks today live in houses and apartment buildings once occupied by Jewish residence.

Now we are a minority within a minority.

Fact: Crown Heights has lots and lots of apartment buildings, we have full blocks* of just buildings, which most of them are full of blacks. There are more blacks in Jewish (occupied) buildings then there are Jews in Black (occupied) buildings.

* Just a FEW examples of full blocks of just buildings: 1)Montgomery between Nostrand and Rogers.
2) Crown between Nostrand and Rogers. 3) Kingston between Empire and Lefferts. 4) Lefferts between Brooklyn and New York. 5) Empire between Utica and Schenectady. 6) President between Schenectady and Troy. 7) the whole of Eastern Parkway. Every block has at-least one building.

Fact: There are more public schools in the Crown Heights neighborhood then there are anywhere else in the city.

Fact: There are hundreds of  laws that prevent landlords from “pushing out” tenants. Any landlord can testify that it is no easy task evicting a tenant (even one that does not pay rent). A landlord can spend up to three years in court, even when he’s in the right side of the law etc…

That said….the blacks, including Mrs. Laurie Cumbo, who claim that:

“The blacks of Crown Heights have “grievances,”…  “Many of the buildings are owned by the Jewish community and [black tenants felt] there was a deliberate movement to push them out of their homes. What they would say to me is [the Jews are] doing this, not fixing that, making noise, they’re trying to push me out.’”

are talking out of pure hate and ignorance.

Mrs. Laurie Cumbo must resign as Councilwoman!!!

Mrs. Cumbo I’m sure has bigger aspirations, being a councilwoman is her first step up the political ladder. What better district to have on ones resume then the multicultural Crown Heights.

In her future campaigns (for congress or senate etc…) Mrs. Cumbo can have the “I worked with everybody” line in her adds and speeches. She will have photos of meetings with so called “Jewish leaders”etc…etc… She is using Crown Heights as a stepping stone to go up the political ladder.

This is why we must stop her now!!!!

Here are a few questions I have for Mrs. Cumbo (and these are questions of our so called “leaders” should have asked here:

1) In real time, how did you respond to these comments from the black community regarding the Jewish landlords etc…?

2) What outreach are you going to do now (for to the black community) to educate them of realty?

And then I would tell her to resign!

*****************************************

If only it was true: Now for a twist on this subject.

If only it was true that somehow our Jewish landlords were pushing out the blacks (and the yuppies) to make space for fellow Jews. Or the very least,  building (new construction) for Jews. This would be a [wild] dream come true.

Unfortunately, the opposite is true. Most buildings in Crown Heights are owned by Jews, some that live in the neighborhood and claim to be Chabad Lubavitch (anash)* and many are from other neighborhoods, either way, most of their buildings are full of blacks and yuppies.

* Examples: The Sperlin family owns many buildings in Crown Heights and surrounding areas, which are mostly full of blacks and yuppies. Yossi Popack owns buildings with no Jewish tenants.

Thank G-d we have at-least one landlord that builds for the Jewish community and the corrupt cabal wanted to crucify him. May G-d almighty bless him with health (until 120), wealth and only happiness.

If anybody has any “grievances,” in Crown Height, it’s the Jews towards their own Jewish landlords.

The black community have no right to complain regarding this matter.

I had a good laugh when I read that Chanina Sperlin said the following:

Rabbi Chanina Sperlin, a longtime Crown Heights community leader who stood alongside Cumbo at a press conference condemning the knockout attacks last month, said Cumbo’s letter completely missed the mark.

“I saw her letter. I told her I totally disagree,” Sperlin said. “I think she has a lot to learn in this community….she’s coming in on such a left foot, and she didn’t even step into the City Council yet.”

Sperlin added that Cumbo’s claim that African Americans and Caribbean Americans were unfairly feeling the brunt of the real-estate crunch ignored the pressures equally faced by their Jewish neighbors.

“I don’t know where the wild dream is coming from that Jewish people want to kick African Americans out of their houses…but it’s definitely not coming from the Jewish community,” the rabbi said. (Source: http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20131204/crown-heights/councilwoman-blames-knockout-attacks-on-tension-between-blacks-jews)

FACT: Chanina Sperlin does not represent the community and is in no way, shape or form a community leader.

I end this post with a blessing to all my Jewish neighbors (not including the Mossrim).

May G-d almighty bless you with health, bags full of money and happiness.

    Well it is true that Crown Heights Jews care only about their own. From their patrolling the neighborhood, signs, event and advertisements on practically every pole to the designated low income apartment buildings that only rent to Jews its all for them. It seem Jews get away with blatant discrimination everyday I’m not advocating valance but it isn’t hard to connect the valance to the blatant racism. Every news reporter acts as if years after the Crown heights riots most everyone is getting along and embracing each others religious, ethic, sexual, and other diversity’s in Crown heights. Where? I applauded Councilwoman Cumbo for speaking up for those without voices in Crown heights! I voted for her and I look for ward to her making a difference in this community.

      1) You obviously didn’t read my post above.

      2) You are factually wrong (as my post above indicated…but you didn’t bother to read and I’m not going to repeat, just scroll back up).

      3) You are blinded by hate, jealously and envy.

      Now to address some of your comment:
      You write:

      Well it is true that Crown Heights Jews care only about their own.

      1) If only this was 100% true. As much as we do for each other, we can always do more.

      2) What is wrong with this? We have our community and you have yours. What have you done for your brothers lately?

      From their patrolling the neighborhood

      Is the patrol illegal? What bother is this to you? What are you doing to help make this neighborhood safer (for everybody)?
      BTW, when this patrol stops a criminal, they are stopping a criminal that targets Jews and blacks quickly.

      signs, event and advertisements on practically every pole to the designated low income apartment buildings that only rent to Jews its all for them.

      I’m not understanding what your trying to say here. Perhaps you can clarify?

      It seem Jews get away with blatant discrimination everyday I’m not advocating valance but it isn’t hard to connect the valance to the blatant racism.

      (a) Full Definition of VALANCE:
      1: a drapery hung along the edge of a bed, table, altar, canopy, or shelf
      2: a short drapery or wood or metal frame used as a decorative heading to conceal the top of curtains and fixtures

      Every news reporter acts as if years after the Crown heights riots most everyone is getting along and embracing each others religious, ethic, sexual, and other diversity’s in Crown heights. Where?

      Your right at this point. But I disagree with the premise that we must all get along and embrace in order to live with each other. We can and should live our separate lives, yet respect one anthers space (live and let live). As individuals we can choose who we want to help and who we don’t, we should not be forced to do anything we don’t.

      I and many like me, assist all those (Jews and blacks) that we see need assistance. If you open your eyes (which is currently blinded by hate, jealously and envy), you will see this on a daily basis. Most Jews and black neighbors get along just fine.

      I applauded Councilwoman Cumbo for speaking up for those without voices in Crown heights!

      This is factually wrong (as I wrote above). The black community outvotes the Jews community 100 to 2.

      I voted for her and I look for ward to her making a difference in this community.

      Shes not going to do anything for you. Shes in this only for herself.

    Jiheje Writes:

    …”I applauded Councilwoman Cumbo for speaking up for those without voices in Crown heights! I voted for her and I look for ward to her making a difference in this community.”

    Just like the you looked forward for the first black President to make a difference in our great country?

    How is that working out for the black community?

    Blacks electing blacks is the worse thing a black can do for his community or country.

    When it’s a white politician, the black community can demand this or the other and they will get…to shut them up or whatever, it doesn’t matter, they get what they need or want.

    When it’s a black politician, a “brother”, the black community doesn’t get anything, they only get screwed. But since it’s a black, they can’t or won’t criticize.

    If there are those from the black community who are brave enough to say the truth and thus do criticize they are called derogatory names which I don’t want to repeat here.

    Black are intimidated and harassed in to silence if they voice criticism on fellow blacks.

    If a white man criticizes a black politician hes a racist etc…etc…

    As a black person you know more then I do that what I write here is true.
