Chirlane McCray should cut all ties with Linda Sarsour This may be the last remaining taboo in our supposedly colorblind society. A New York City woman — beautiful, educated, successful and single — accepted a challenge presented by an online dating service that aimed to fix her up with available men.
Reid, who is African-American, had opened herself up to the possibility of going out with men who are not. Except for one white guy, she has dated only within her race. She agreed to be featured in a news release announcing that she would go on a series of blind dates with four New York-area bachelors of all races, including African-Americans.
Then the pushback began. In this day and age, some people are vehemently against the idea of a woman of color going out with men of other backgrounds.

And the Pew Research Center determined that black men were more than six times as likely as white men to be serving time in prisons and jails in Meanwhile, said Karazin, the rate of out-of-wedlock births to black women is 72 to 80 percent — up to percent in some communities. Some of the ills facing black men, particularly high incarceration rates for relatively minor crimes, are unfair to them. But Karazin does not believe that black women should be limited by race when choosing partners. Skin color should not matter when it comes to love.
Gramps and Grandma have financed her lawsuit. This is like the case of Rachel Canning, also of New Jersey, who moved away from home and took her parents to court this year to shake them down for tuition money and other expenses before dropping her lawsuit. Greedy brats like these could sour one on having kids. They double derriere ya The Metropolitan Museum of Art has hit bottom. Gilberto Valle, who was fired from the NYPD, was convicted last year of conspiracy to kidnap women whom he fantasized with fellow ghouls online about cooking and eating.
He could have been locked up for life. But a Manhattan federal judge overturned the top rap against him, agreeing with me that while Valle, 30, committed thought crimes, he posed no real danger to anyone. After watching his own female lawyer fight for him, Valle, who cooked for jail employees while locked up, said he wants to join the legal profession. He should try being a chef instead.
Cops have arrested him for bigamy and fraud.
