I didn't fully understand how someone could be offended at what Mayor Deblasio told his bi-racial son. After all, I still remember when I was lectured over and over as a child in this city on the same topic.

The Staten Island Grand Jury can return an indictment. The public may expect the Staten Island Grand Jury to return an indictment. However the reality may prove to be quite different. It may come down to no indictment in Ferguson and no indictment in the chokehold NYPD case of Eric Garner.

He was cautious and deliberate. I left the 30 minute interview almost shocked.

In Light of Missouri, de Blasio Looks Like a Genius

Dominic Carter | Posted 10.18.2014 | New York

In light of Missouri, do the critics still think NY Mayor Bill de Blasio is weak and that he caved in to Sharpton? Or perhaps, did de Blasio's actions avert violence?

After the stigma, the pain for their families, and all these years of being labeled rapists, these five young men can begin to put the terrible ordeal in the past, an ordeal that tagged them and scarred them for life.

State Senator Adriano Espaillat has learned a hard lesson. He may have come razor close twice before, but it has to be a bitter pill of why it's so tough to beat an incumbent.

As I seated myself, I could hardly believe I was sitting across from the man who had almost single-handedly brought down the system of apartheid. Yet Mandela called me "Mister Carter."

Deblasio's Tale of Two New York's Is Not New, But It's Working

Dominic Carter | Posted 11.10.2013 | New York
Dominic Carter

Déjà vu. It's almost scary how close this race for mayor is shaping up as a repeat of the past. Been there, done that. However, at the end of the day, it was a disaster for Democrats.

Foster Care Agencies Are to be Commended for What They Do, Day In Day Out

Dominic Carter | Posted 10.14.2013 | Impact
Dominic Carter

These are all professionals that are modest people. I call them unsung heroes. People who surely don't do it for the money, as they will never get rich doing what they do, but they are just as happy as the millionaires. In fact, one could make a case, they are happier.

Anthony Weiner: Maybe He Knows Something We Don't

There I was Friday afternoon, sitting next to Weiner with the Weiner for Mayor signs behind him, him telling me with a straight face that he was going to win the Democratic primary for mayor.

"Are there more prostitutes involved?" I asked. Spitzer: "No, no, and..." I cut him off and followed up with, "Only one?" That was the only time he seemed to be caught off guard.

It was clear he was borrowing a page from someone else, the playbook of the man who would later go down in history as "America's Mayor," Rudy Giuliani. Looking at Weiner's spot, was I watching a Giuliani for NY Mayor commercial again?

Romney's performance in the third and final debate was so bad, that even though this race remains extremely close, Romney may have actually sealed President Obama's re-election.

Many of us respect the second amendment and the right to bear arms, but folks we have got to do something, and demand more of our elected officials to combat guns, and certainly assault weapons.

Use of Rev. Wright Would Be a Disaster, but Not Necessarily for Obama

Dominic Carter | Posted 07.18.2012 | Politics

The million dollar question is whether Obama's base will turn out again. Using Wright, a polarizing figure as he is, would guarantee a high African American turnout. And guess who these voters are supporting?

Another problem, as the moderate Romney tries to move back towards the middle to compete in battleground states and for independent voters, how does he get away from the "far right" hole he has deeply dug for himself?

No Southern Win for Mitt, But Huge Night for Santorum

Romney has momentum -- a chance to finally beat expectations only to fall short in the end -- and never closes the deal. Sound familiar?

No Knockout Punch for Romney

Romney can come close to obtaining the necessary delegates, but may not reach it, continuing speculation of a possible brokered convention. Might there be a white knight to rescue the party?

Hey, if you were in the race, wouldn't you rather be in Romney's shoes -- wouldn't you feel more viable -- rather than being in the shoes of Santorum, Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul?
