    I live in Jamaica Queens, Malcolm Smith's stomping grounds and we didn't lose a role model in Malcolm. Senator Smith would've made a horrible mayor just as Christine Quinn makes a terrible choice as mayor of NYC. Malcolm has always sold out his constituents, he's part of the political problems businesses and communities of color struggle with. Pay-to-play politics is pervasive in minority communities because we seem to have to beg whites for money to fund our projects. Blacks have to beg and pander to whites who rig the system for federal, state and local contracts AMD because blacks are excluded from winning high paying bids our leaders shamelessly sell us out...bribes are rampant
