“Some of you guys in the comments are disgusting. You know nothing about black history or why people are protesting. Black people have been fighting for equality for over 400 years. Educate yourselves before you speak. Stop being Karen’s & Kens & pick up a damn history book. Black people have to work 10 times harder than a white man or woman just because we’re black. You’ll never understand but at least stand for what’s right. You people disgust me.

“Kyla, you may find it surprising, but there are tens of thousands of highly successful black bankers, lawyers, doctors, media executives and other professionals just 30 min drive away. I’ve no idea if they worked 10x harder than some “white benchmark.” Even if they did, having somehow not benefited from affirmative action, what’s wrong with working harder? Jews done that for 2k years and it served them well. Immigrants from all over the world work their asses off in US and proud of it. Some hardly speak English. Some are on slave visa terms where they can’t switch jobs because their employer owns their visa. And that’s just professionals. What about all those Hispanics, whites, and immigrants of every shade who bust their asses building homes, picking up trash, working cash registers, etc etc? They just chill? If your complaint is that some people have harder lives than others… so what? On the other hand, if you’re a Marxist who wants free sh!t because it’s “just,” I recommend you find somewhere else to go. Ridgewood is a nice town for families and hard-working people. We don’t appreciate hustlers here.”
