NYC Mayor: Jobs Crisis May Cause Riots

Your Black World reports.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg sparked controversy this week by stating that the high rates of poverty and unemployment could cause riots throughout the United States.  He compared instability here to what’s happened in Europe and North Africa.

"You have a lot of kids graduating college, [who] can't find jobs," said Bloomberg on his radio show. "That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here."

The mayor was reacting to recent announcements on the poverty rate, which rose to 15.1% in 2010, which is the highest its been since 1993.  African Americans are facing a poverty rate of over 27%.   Over 46 million Americans are living in poverty, a number that seems to grow every year.

"The public is not happy," he said. "The public knows there is something wrong in this country, and there is. The bottom line is that they're upset."

There isn’t much response to the poverty problem on Capitol Hill.  During his State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama was the first Democratic president since Dwight D. Eisenhower to not mention the poor during his speech.  The gap between the rich and the poor continues to grow in the United States, and apparently, Bloomberg feels that it could threaten the society at large.

As long as we have people in Washington and government in this country who only care aboute getting re-elected,and protecting the tax breaks of those who are creating jobs over seas and not here than what happens because of it is what happens.

INDEED WHAT THE MAYOR HAS STATED IS IN FACT TRUE. YET, HE NEGLECTED TO MENTION HIS OWN CONTRIBUTIONS TO THIS PROBLEM. OR DOES HE THINK THE "FIRING OF TEACHERS" AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING "NONE CAN AFFORD" ALONG WITH "CUTS BACKS" AND "TAKE BACKS" THAT HE HAS BEEN DISSEMINATING HAVE "NOTHING TO DO WITH IT"? APPARENTLY, HE HAS THE LEISURE TO "LOOK ACROSS THE NATION" AT WHAT IS OCCURRING, WHILE IGNORING HIS OWN "BACK YARD". OH! I'M SORRY, I FORGOT! HE'S A "SQUATTER"!!! FOR THOUGH "TOLD TO LEAVE" AT THE END OF HIS TERM HE "INSISTED" AND DECIDED TO "STAY". OH YES, "IT'S GOOD TO BE THE KING" ISN'T MR. BLOOMBURG? "TAKE" WHAT YOU WANT, "COME AND GO" AS YOU WANT, AND POINT FINGERS IN "OTHER DIRECTIONS" WHEN THE "BIGGEST FINGER" IS POINTING AT "YOU"! AND IT IS "NOT" THE "RING FINGER"!

Bloomberg is talking about WHITE COLLEGE KIDS who can't get jobs. Seeing that the black poor unemployment rate is at depression levels you would think that would have been his main focus. I doubt if this clown would rationalize blacks rioting because of long term unemployment.

Marie Antoinette lost her head, and it fell into the gap between the rich and the poor. The only thing that holds a society together is a comfortable and successful middle class. As the gap widens, we will see what kind of trouble comes.

This country was 'born' with something wrong with it! It's land was taken through force! Black ppl were forced from their land off of the west coast of Africa and brought here to perform FREE LABOR! Million's of us are still psychologically enslaved to the day! Race problems based on skin color, cultural conflicts, immigrants allowed into the US are systemically indoctrinated to follow the white mainstream in their views towards Black ppl because they were 'losers' in their place of origin..! It's ugly!

The US was clearly built on lies and the law of nature warrants that "you shall reap what you have sowed!" As long as they keep their dominant culture employed or occupied to be pacified, riots will probably not happen because the minority groups are dysfunctional, which is a result of 'the plan.'

Bloomberg is more than likely venting his "fear" being that more and more ppl are becoming aware that he, and a slew of others, attained their riches through "theft, lies, gross criminal behavior and mass murder!" Those of us that have a strong relationship with God or the Creator know that the clock is ticking for natural catastrophic events to do far more damage and destruction in the US than a riot.

If there will be any rioting on the street, it better be Wall Street, starting with the New York Stock Exchange then head on over to Goldman Sachs. Bring plenty of accelerant, baseball bats, firebombs and anything else that will do extreme and lasting damage.

Wall Street is the main source of our poverty and unemployment problem in this country. Plus, that is where the "job creators" hide all of their assets.

Why is this Republican able to see what others refuse to see . . .or admit?

RICAREG-- The difference between M.B., for one, is he's a former Dem and has been the Mayor of NY under the 'independent' umbrella since he was elected, but when you connect the dots it's easy to assess that he was 'selected' based on his affiliation with the elite, of the bigger picture... If you carefully look at MB's timeline being an Amer. Jew and his ties to larry Silverstein whom fits the same description and being that LS was the sole owner of bldg. 7 and had invested $14 million as a down payment for the remaining WTC bldgs. on July 24, 2001, gaining a profit of over $3.5 billion in less than 60 days, based on added insurance policies conjured up, at that same time! MB's primary position is to watch and analyze the movement of new yorkers as a precautionary measure pursuant to his ties to LS!

As tragic as the event was in 09-2001 when you carefully look at the timeline, including the florida vote in 11-2000 (which disenfranchised blacks more than anyone else), you can see the plan especially when you take into account how fast those bldgs fell including bldg 7 which was not hit by any plane... Why was bush camped out at an all black elementary school in florida? To cover up the fact that he knew that black ppl would be killed that day, as well as his conscious telling him that black ppl have been killed unjustly in the US, since 1619!
