#3081: Adolf Giuliani walks in and Haitian clergy walk out (fwd)
A score of Black clergymen walked out on Giuliani and he didn't call them any
name? This is out of character for Giuliani, and besides I didn't think the
good clergymen had it in them. Could that meeting be actually setting the
stage for a more heartful encounter between the two parties? The Haitian
community had been so scornful of late of both Giuliani and his "friends"
that the good clergymen may have felt the need to showcase a little
independence before actually sitting down with Mayor Adolf. But their sole
demand of an apology for Giuliani's badmouthing of Patrick Dorismond is
simply a fig leaf to hide their subservience to City Hall.
So what if Giuliani apologizes? Does it follow that the police will destroy
the thousands of fingerprints and police records contrived for so-called
truant youth, too often picked up by the police on their way to school? Does
it follow that Giuliani will actually stop his war against black youth? Not
likely. The only safe way to stop Giuliani is to drive him out of City Hall.
The distinguished clergymen should tune in to the community. And when they
meet again with Giuliani, they should ask him to step down for the good of
the city. But don't hold your breath.
