Get use to it- all of western Nassau County- west of the Meadowbrook Pkwy is becoming a dump- Elmont, Inwood, Roosevelt, Hempstead, even New Hyde Park. All the welfare criminals from brooklyn and south Queens are coming into Nassau for the "great public schools, low crime, and suburban atmosphere". Wakeup- the liberals from NYC are dumping welfare into Nassau County so they can take back the brownstones in Brooklyn. Latest census shows Brooklyn went from 40% White to 51% White in a span of 10 years. We are the fools paying high property taxes to support welfare. In the 1950's scheister/ schlemel /schmuck developers pushed Whites out to Long Island to occupt undeveloped land they purchased. But they didn't loose out in Brooklyn because they got the government to pay for welfare /rent/section 8 / housing projects in the vacated Brooklyn neighborhoods. They made money both ways.

It's hard out here in the streetz. Buying drugs at 3:30 am in the morning can be hazardous to your health. And we all know white people love their drugs.

No, it wasn't....It turned when the bleeding heart liberals got hold of it and the rest of people just looked the other way...
