The real “communities like mine” of Cory Booker…
To listen to Sen Cory Booker (D-NJ) dress down ex-Vice President Joe “Sleepy/Creepy/Crazy Joe” Biden in regards to various candidates crime platforms, you’d think the Garden State senator grew-up deep in the bowels of urban blight and non-stop social injustice.
The community itself “like mine” that Booker grew-up in was anything but poverty-stricken. The fact of the matter is that Booker was raised and educated in the very rich and very white town of Harrington Park, NJ.
But don’t think for a moment that Booker was the son of… oh, let’s say a garbageman and a scrubwoman who toiled on her hands and knees for all those rich white folks in Harrington Park.
Somehow, “communities like mine” educationally for Booker include Stanford University, Britain’s prestigious Oxford University, and Yale Law. They all just happen to be private schools. It’s a fair bet that his total costs during his college years could have easily topped $1 million.
Another interesting factoid, according to the US Census, the population of Harrington Park is a whopping 00.7 percent black. Yeah… all 32 of them.
