The Truth from Becky

Typical response Rick Marsh...that distraction worked on my great grandparents, but it doesnt work on me and if you have been removed from the "main site" I am sure it is by your own the by, what is your heritage? As if I can't guess.

Oh Becky, Becky. Not again, please.

You think a lot, but have never thought for herself. Furiously typed strings of bitter old cliches. No wonder we other listeners have been evicted from WNYC's main site. Really, Becky - please stay on the medication they gave you. In time, maybe the shows will allow us re-enter our comments on their main pages.

Then nerve of the census...should be required to indicate what "white" immigrant group you are do Italians identify?

First-generation Hispanic immigrants tend to vote for no one. Second-generation immigrants and beyond generally tend to vote Democrat, but they can be quite conservative on social issues and not favorably disposed to illegal immigration, particularly when they themselves entered the country by legitimate means.

More racist drivel...white flight fear.

Oh don't worry most forms have been changed to read "white" not of hispanic descent. I think the so called "whites" should be required to indicate their heritage or racial background as well!
