How Chuck Schumer played racist card to get a foothold in politics

Senator Chuck Schumer has been real quick to play the racist card in his trip trough politics. He has been absolutely heavy handed using it against any Trump nominee or Trump proposal. Have you heard the story about how he got his start in politics? Would you believe it from an eyewitness? Here is the story. Be amazed.

As Written By Jay D. Homnick for American Spectator:

Charles Schumer trying to tar Samuel Alito as a racist because of membership in some club? Don’t make me laugh.

This entire segment is populated by whites, mostly Italians and Jews, with a recent influx of Slavic immigrants. Right smack dab in the middle of this box is a series of apartment houses on Avenue K, from E. 12th to E. 15th Street, whose tenants are almost 100% black……..
