Default De Blasio blasted for hiring ‘another white guy’ to run the NYPD


De Blasio blasted for hiring ‘another white guy’ to run the NYPD

New York Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz, D-Jackson Heights

A Queens assemblyspic says she has a big problem with Mayor de Blasio’s decision to name NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea as the department’s next top cop – because he’s “another white guy.”

“At a time when the relationship between police and communities of color couldn’t be worse — we chose yet another white guy?” Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz (D-Queens) tweeted Monday.

“We have many qualified men and women of color within the [NYPD] who could lead the force in the right direction. What gives?”

Her remarks were met with staunch criticism on social media.

“This post is disturbing and racist on so many levels,” wrote one user.

“You are an elected official fanning flames of racism. Disappointing.”

Another person wrote, “With all due respect, that is a racist comment.”

“Get over it, qualifications matter, not the color of your skin. We are all part of the human race.”

Cruz, however, fired back, “Reverse racism isn’t a thing. Stop trying to make it so.”

She also posted a short GIF of a wide-eyed white bird and quipped, “Oh no! Look at all the white guys saying the white guy was better qualified!”

When asked about Cruz’s criticism, De Blasio said he selected Shea to replace Commissioner James O’Neill because he’s simply the best candidate.

He also told NY1 the department has gotten a lot more diverse during his leadership, adding “you will see an intensification of diversity in the leadership ranks in the coming years.”
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
