ICYMI: The New York Mayoral Debate

NYC debate

I don’t know what I was doing last night, but I missed the first mayoral debate btwn incumbent Mike Bloomberg and hopeful Bill Thompson. So thank God for Sportie and NY1 and their re-cap. Check it here!

ps. Thompson is a black man, and no one’s making a big deal of that fact. I’m both excited that his race seems a non-issue, and weirded out because I think it’s a big deal. David Dinkins was NYC Mayor over ten years ago…Thoughts?

    Thompson is a bore.

  • thompson’s race isn’t an issue because he has worked hard to be non-colored. i don’t know what it is about some of these african-american politicians that take on this “new york jew” affect in their speech. don’t get me wrong. i’m not saying that there is only one acceptable speech pattern for grown black men but it just seems like…like they’re distancing themselves from what they think the stereotype is. and then, on the other hand, you have your man michael steele with his ebonic foolishness. makes me want to speak the queen’s english at all times out of embarrassment.
