City, artists come together to paint
‘All Black Lives Matter’ on N.J. street

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 6/28/2020 2:20:31 PM

It was downpouring on Halsey Street in Newark Saturday afternoon, but that didn’t stop Kween Moore from dancing in between yellow letters she helped paint on the road to spell out “ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER.” “This is including everyone,” said Moore, who is an art teacher at Greater Oaks Charter School. “That’s why ‘all’ is emphasized at the beginning because we’re not leaving anybody out. No matter your gender, no matter what shade of Black you are.”(Snip) The groups also painted “ABOLISH WHITE SUPREMACY” on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in front of the Essex County Hall of Records.  Correction*

Comments:

Newark Mayor Ras Baraka (whose father was a Marxist bLACK supremacist "poet") banned hate groups from the failed city, yet allows enormous and unmistakably racist messages to appear in the crumbling and violent streets. Kween Moore could instead have painted ONLY instead of ALL, but maybe they ran out of paint.

*Source corrected.

Also, FTA: "Newark Arts and Cultural Affairs Director fayemi shakur (who does not capitalize the letters in her name) said the word 'all was included on the Halsey Street mural to gain more visibility for stories within the Black community that aren’t getting as much attention as Floyd’s." This is how a nation dies.

If they're going to "Abolish White Supremacy", the democrats are in big trouble, since they're the party of the KKK.

There's so much white supremacy that they've been denied the right to vote, had their rioting and looting put down, can't paint their racist messages onto streets and all businesses have refused and denied their message and they've been hunted down like China and Venezuela did to their protesters. Oh wait....

It's a straw man argument. The question to ask is, "Who, exactly, has said that black lives don't matter?" I'll wager nobody of any significance has uttered such words in the last 50 years. The only ones who act as if they don't matter, though they don't dare say it out loud, are the Democrats who lord over the huge black ghettos.

Newark has a Black Mayorand the City Counsel consists of 5 black and 4 Hispanic (other shades of black according to the latest lunacy from AOC and the leftists). The population is 283.000 compared to over 440,000 in 1930. The population is 53% black, 34% Latino (both white and black) and 26% white but only 12% non-Hispanic white. Please explain to me how white people are the cause of anything in Newark let alone systemic racism. Note, after this exercise in stupidity was competed by the various Marxists and America Haters, Newark remained a crap-hole with a violent and and other crime rate 3 times that of the US and double that of NJ as a whole. So much for wasting paint in symbolic gestures.

It is actually a great insult to anyone who has any talent and works very hard to perfect that talent and find enough patrons to make a living, to simply label every cretin with a spray can or paint brush as an 'Artist.'

I know Halsey Street well. I grew up in Bloomfield a small border town nearby. Newark was our main shopping area in the 40's and 50's. We used to take the bus on Wednesday night to go shopping downtown. That was the night the stores were open until nine o'clock. Halsey was the street behind Broad St., the main thoroughfare. It had small cafes for a quick cup of coffee, smaller shops and access to the larger Department stores on Broad St. It was a respectful place back then. People always were always properly attired and groomed. We were not afraid to walk on the street after dark and we all lived harmoniously with each other. There were many ethnic groups in those days. There were Jewish, Polish, Germans, Irish, Blacks and my family was Italian. We all supported each other. We didn't have a lot back then, though we were kind and had good manners and respect for each other. After all those were the Eisenhower years. After going away to college, I returned back to Newark to work in a excellent Hospital in downtown Newark, which has since closed. Many of my instructors during my internship in the laboratory were highly educated and Black. I admired their expertise and looked up to them. Those were good times living in the Newark NJ area. Everything started to change in the sixties with Vietnam and race riots. People moved out to the suburbs and Newark deteriorated under corrupt Democrat mayors. The rest is history. However, there is a bright spot there. A new group of hard working Portuguese immigrants have moved into the Ironbound section of Newark and have revitalized it. So there's hope. The gangs and thugs on Halsey St today, will not vote in November. They will be long gone. My guess is their a bunch of gypsies, going from place to place. Until we catch them and lock them up, this will continue, because they have no fear. Newark, once a signing city in the 1930's is no longer a city, it's a part of the NYC metro area, with an easy airport o fly into, and quick access into Manhattan through the Lincoln Tunnel.

I can think of a few messages they might want to paint. I am sure you can come up with some good advice too. Do not have children out of wedlock. There is more to school than the free breakfast and free lunch. You do not have to have sex with everyone who knocks on your front door. There is more to being a good dad than buying diapers and wipes. Get a job, any job, and work your way up. Do not drink, use drugs, hang with the wrong crowd, break the law on a daily basis. Stop shooting each other.

I subscribe to the feeling of BTLDM! I really think bLACK Thugs Lives Don't Matter. I've never been racist, but this 13% of the population 'demanding' more unearned largesse is starting to change me. The bLACKS that I see robbing train cars of big screen TV's, robbing, looting and vandalizing public and private property, will honestly, never be contributing members of American society. Anyone who believes these miscreants will ever amount to anything more than leeches on the public teat, are living in a dream world, or they're democrats.

So what makes them think they're entitled to erect their monuments and create a new world in a world they didn't build and they certainly didn't win a battle over? Can someone who disagrees with them tear up their "art"? Would they consider that a fair fight? Social "battles" and shaming don't equal military conquest. You can make someone bow the knee at the barrel of a gun, but you can't force someone to really think the way you want them to by screaming and acting like spoiled, ignorant fools. The fascists who tried to burn down a police station screamed bloody murder when the police fought back. Who taught these idiots this nonsense? Never mind, I know the answer. They were taught this foolishness by old, worn out, loser, bout to die leftists. Leftists are masters of deconstruction, but they can't build anything worth a darn. Yet, they foolishly believe they're the smartest people on the planet, when they're dumb as doorknobs.

"Abolish White Supremacy" How about improving the quantitative and qualitative outcomes of blacks first. As it stand right now, from all outward appearances, blacks seem hell-bent-for-leather clamoring over themselves to get to the back of the social bus. You get out of life almost exactly what you put in. Color of skin makes no difference.

“This is including everyone,” said Moore [snip] “That’s why ‘all’ is emphasized at the beginning because we’re not leaving anybody out. No matter your gender, no matter what shade of Black you are.” So it's like Henry Ford said of the Model T: "You can have any color you want, as long as it's black."

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with his four more liberal colleagues in ruling that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates the abortion right the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. In two previous abortion cases, Roberts had favored restrictions. The Louisiana law is virtually identical to one in Texas that the court struck down in 2016.

An interesting outcome and juxtaposition amid the new policing approach advanced by the Minneapolis City Council.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with his four more liberal colleagues in ruling that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates the abortion right the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. In two previous abortion cases, Roberts had favored restrictions. The Louisiana law is virtually identical to one in Texas that the court struck down in 2016.

Conservatives were outraged eight years ago when Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the liberals on the court to uphold Obamacare's individual mandate. His swing almost singlehandedly saved the Affordable Care Act. A few years removed and he made a few better decisions, somewhat appeasing conservatives. But last year he helped kill the census citizenship question. Then, last week, he voted with liberals to reject President Trump's attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The court didn't say that Trump couldn't reverse the program, but that his legal reasoning wasn't up to par.

Sidney Powell, attorney for retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, said her client, in his duties as the White House national security adviser, was prepared to “audit” the U.S. intelligence community. That, according to the former federal prosecutor, is partly why federal agents “set up” Flynn. Powell, who took over Flynn’s defense last summer, told the “Vickie McKenna Show” on 1310 WIBA Madison that her client was “totally set up” because he threatened to expose wrongdoing by top intelligence officials in the Obama administration.

The publication of a set of notes taken by now-disgraced former FBI agent, Peter Strzok related to the prosecution of former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn provides the first specific evidence that former president Obama was behind the wrongful prosecution of Flynn and, almost certainly, the investigation of Donald Trump’s campaign and presidential transition. Strzok took the notes at a January 5, 2017 White House meeting at which he, Obama, Joe Biden, then-deputy attorney general Sally Yates, then-FBI director James Comey and Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, all were present. (Snip) Obama directs the investigation of Flynn to proceed.

In a discussion on Fox News about the tear-down of America’s monuments and statues taking place in hot spots around the nation right now, liberal pundit Marie Harf, who served as a national security adviser for Barack Obama, said that “process,” not mob violence, should dictate the outcomes of these structures. She said, in the end, the Confederate statutes should be removed because the Confederates were “traitors” to the country. Spoken like a true elitist. Spoken like a true-blue “The Federal Government Knows Best,” anti-states’ rights elitist. Spoken like an elitist who’s forgotten or worse, dismissed, historical truths. The rise of the South, the establishment of the Confederacy was not an overnight,

At least 20 people were shot, seven fatally, during a 24-hour timeframe this weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago. NBC Chicago reports the first non-fatal shooting occurred around 4 p.m. Friday, when a 31-year-old was shot and wounded while riding in a vehicle “in the 10300 block of South Halsted.” The man was transported to the hospital in good condition. Just under 24 hours later, at 3:50 p.m. Saturday, a 28-year-old man was found on South Phillips with “a gunshot wound to the chest, the neck and the right arm.” The victim was transported to the hospital in critical condition.
