The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Local Meeting of KKK Taking Place At This Kar Klubhouse
It always sux to be vandalized. And when the key-ed graffiti on your car reads KKK, it probably doesn't stand for Kit-Kat-Klub. This was awaiting a reader on his car this week.
I'm sure you too have noticed the uptick of anti-Caucasian graffiti. But take heart...as with the hate speech that seems to be growing against all groups, it's not a movement. Isolated, and kind of pathetic. A lot of people feel angry and fearful these days. Some feel emboldened. Should heighten our resolve to keep our lovin' gloves on, not the boxing sort.
