I have no race prejudice. I think I have no color prejudices or caste prejudices nor creed prejudices. Indeed, I know it. I can stand any society. All that I care to know is that a man is a human being -- that is enough for me; he can't be any worse.

He should be thrown out of the Assembly for a stupid stunt like this.

I wonder what he would do if a middle-eastern/american colleague had shown up in full orthodox jew drag?

I'm from New York and follow New York news each day. Even Democrats in the Assembly are calling for him to resign. This behavior should be totally unacceptable.(But has been tolerated for decades by the New York legislature.

"The divide of race has been America's constant curse. Each new wave of immigrants gives new targets to old prejudices. Prejudice and contempt, cloaked in the pretense of religious or political conviction, are no different. They have nearly destroyed us in the past. They plague us still. They fuel the fanaticism of terror. They torment the lives of millions in fractured nations around the world. These obsessions cripple both those who are hated and, of course, those who hate, robbing both of what they might become. Bill Clinton

Typical antisemitic conspiracy theorist. I hope you can find someone to treat your schizophrenia. If Jews did not exist, I assume you'd subsitute the words "FREEMASONS", "CATHOLICS", or "HONKIES" (I'm guessing you are black) in the above.
