Sr. and Jr. Diaz make Village Voice Most PowerLESS list!


Rodney Dangerfield was fortunate to be only a comedian and a husband. Like Mr. Dangerfield, La Familia Diaz get no respect. It ‘s no laughing matter that state Senator Rev. Ruben Diaz and his son, Bronx BP Ruben Diaz, Jr. made the Village Voice’s “100 Most Power-less New Yorkers” list.

State Senator Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr., comes in at #17.  His son, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., follows at #18. Apparently, their differing positions on same-sex marriage renders them  both “powerless” New Yorkers. The writer’s contoured and biased logic seems to confirm the belief by some Americans that the media is controlled by an LGBT mafia.

Do you agree with the Village Voice that La Familia Diaz are “powerless” New Yorkers?  Comment as you see fit.
