Dinkins Endorses Espaillat Because he "looks more like us than others" -- UPDATE
Politicker New York has a story about the endorsement of Adriano Espaillat by our former Mayor David Dinkins where he says "most people in the city are going to look more like us than others and that's just a fact. It is not a bad thing. It is frankly a good thing." High praise indeed. Whatever happened to the ideal of a society in which people would not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character? UPDATE: here is some fallout in the NY Post on the Dinkins endorsement. What is also interesting is that is it written by Candice Giove -- who has been a character assassin for Andy Wolf and his Riverdale Review for years -- new gig Candice or just moonlighting?
