Re: “A Bar by Any Other Name: The Adirondack

I was unaware of the Mohawk Tavern controversy, but I think it was misplaced. Not only is Mohawk a geographic term (name of town and valley and perhaps more), but as an old-timer who remembered Brooklyn's Mohawk neighborhood, I probably would have assumed it was Brooklyn Mohawks who owned it, as they did a bunch of bars in I guess what is now Boerum Hill. I was just a kid and teen at the time, but I had a Mohawk friend from school.

Links about the Brooklyn Mohawk community:

Re: “New York is Mentally Ill About Seinfeld!

It's a line from an episode... the one where Jerry is dating Terri Hatcher and she calls him and Elaine mentally ill for trying to figure out if her 'assets' are real or not. By the way, they were real and they were spectacular.

Guess you're not a fan from New York.

Re: “New York is Mentally Ill About Seinfeld!

Groan-worthy headline. Mental illness is an actual, real thing, not a pithy way of talking about Seinfeld.

Re: “Comforting Thoughts: There's an NYC Gang Called "The Master Race" (Featuring Members of the FDNY!)

I don't know what crew your talking about but the one I ran with the one that's been tattooed on my shoulder ( TMR )since my youth , has made me what I am today standup motherfucker that's got principles morals and values that puts his family first because when I ran the streets I put that family (TMR) first ,, we grew up in a time when numbers were important if you were alone the streets Ate you up we weren't having that as far as that racists opinion racist outlook that you got on us as a whole is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard in my life
Hey here is a brainstorm for you want to do a little background research find out exactly all the different ethnic backgrounds of the individuals that were crew back then and do some more research and find out where most of us are today
Cause I know wihere most of us are today working regular type jobs Busting our asses swinging hammers owning homes raising children paying property tax paid school tax and trying to live and PS for the record that bullshit statement that stereotype statement that you made about Irish people dispute resolution consuming fermented grains
You're quite the fucking clown I love to really stereotype my people Irish people and smack the living shit out of you

Re: “The Life of a Plastic Fork

using oil and products that require it doesn't destabilize governments, thank you very much, it's the government itself. the middle east is a world power because of its resources and frankly that's just incorrect and unnecessary to the point you were making.

Re: “A Film Festival For Brooklyn, By Brooklyn, and About Brooklyn

How is this a film festival by Brooklyn, About Brooklyn when all of the places you are screening and all of the filmmakers you are showcasing hail from the predominantly hipster white areas? If you're going to do that, fine, it's your prerogative. But don't front like that represents the whole of "Brooklyn." Besides, most of you guys just got here five years ago.

Re: “The Do's and Don'ts Of Dating With Tinder

I know the app itself is free but how much does it really cost to use it? I ask that because other dating sites let you use it for free for like a week and then charge you to really use the site.
