Greedy Jewish/White landlords are guilty of economic holocaust in Upper Manhattan
(In the last 20 years, 100,000 Blacks and Hispanics have been pushed out of Upper Manhattan).
Jewish/White landlords own 80% of the privately-owned multi-family residential housing in Upper Manhattan.

As a real estate broker operating in Upper Manhattan, Thomas Lopez-Pierre has worked with a small number of landlords, including Jewish/White landlords that treat their low income tenants with respect and provide excellent housing.

In 2014, Thomas Lopez-Pierre will launch a people’s campaign with Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Whites, Jews, Muslims and others for Democratic State Committee Member of 69th Assembly District to spotlight the economic holocaust: gentrification and displacement being committed against low income Black and Hispanic tenants by greedy Jewish/White landlords.
For years, the voter turn-out among African-Americans and Hispanics in the 69th Assembly District has failed to reach its true potential. Currently, 127,919 people live in the 69th Assembly District of which 49.6% are White, 22.9% are Hispanic and 15.4% are Black and 9.0% are Asian.
The economic holocaust that Jewish/White landlords are committing against low income Black and Hispanic tenants has even been reported on by the Jewish Daily Forward, the leading and most respected Jewish newspaper in New York!
This year, Jewish/White landlords used their campaign funds to elect one of their own, Mark Levine to the 7th NYC Council in Upper Manhattan (a district that is 73% Black and Hispanic).
With tens of thousands of dollars of campaign funds from landlords, low minority voter turn-out, high Jewish voter turn-out and the fact that the Black and Hispanic vote was divided between eight minority candidates, the Jewish candidate, Mark Levine was able to win the election (sneaked into the political office of a Black and Hispanic community, like a thief in the night).
Black and Hispanic low income tenants must organize politically with the power of the vote to stop greedy Jewish/White landlords.
The election of Mark Levine to the NYC Council; represents the [ beginning of the end ] of Black and Hispanic political empowerment in Upper Manhattan.
The situation has become so dire that even New York State Gov. Mario Cuomo could NO longer look the other way as greedy Jewish/White landlords continue to push low income Black and Hispanic tenants out of their homes.
Blacks and Hispanics owned less than 5% of the privately-owned multi-family residential housing in Upper Manhattan. Black and Hispanic real estate ownership is comprised mainly of their personal residency: brownstones and coop/condo apartments in Upper Manhattan.
Line outside of Housing Court in Manhattan
The displacement of low income Black and Hispanic tenants in Upper Manhattan is NOT happening just by accident – it is a wicked conspiracy between greedy Jewish/White landlords and those elected officials (many of them Black and Hispanic, the Uncle Tom, House Negros) they control with their campaign contributions.
Each day the lines outside housing court in Manhattan run all the way around the block because greedy Jewish/White Landlords seek to displace low income tenants (of which are 90% Black and Hispanic). More than 75% of housing court cases in Manhattan involves greedy Jewish/White Landlords attempting to displace low income tenants in Upper Manhattan.
Not even public housing is safe from greedy Jewish/White landlords who with their political friends in government (Republicans and Democrats) are trying to buy public housing land to build luxury housing for rich people in Manhattan.
At 3333 Broadway, over 500 Black and Hispanic families have been pushed out of their apartments by their greedy Jewish landlord with rent that went from $800 a month for a one bedroom to $1,500 per month!
For the last 20 years, greedy Jewish/White landlords have been using illegal and legal means to push out low income Black and Hispanic families out of their homes in Upper Manhattan.
Join Thomas Lopez-Pierre for Democratic State Committee Member 2014 to help protect Black and Hispanic tenants from greedy Jewish/White landlords in Upper Manhattan.
NOTE: Thomas Lopez-Pierre will NEVER accept campaign contributions from landlords.
