Remember the openning scene in WSS? Where the Jets (white New Yorkers) looked down upon Americans from Puerto Rico. It was drenched in racism, mockery and idea Puerto Ricans were lazy.
Looking at the tweets its like his knowledge and attitudes comes from this musical. Even Mayor Cruz’s treatment is akin to Anita being attacked when she confronted the Jets that the Jets like the Twit could not tolerate a woman from Puerto Rico standing up to them.
A few days ago Rosie Perez was on Nicole Wallace showand she said when she was young in NY a classmate refered to folks from Puerto Rico as lazy because that’s what their parents said. I cannot find the interview on youtube.
