      In the ruins of one of America’s formerly great cities, what do you imagine life resembles in 2019?

      Mind you, this city is 11.6 percent white (in 1950, this city was 83 percent white. Heck, in 1960, this city was still 65 percent white).

      So, in a city devoid of white privilege, does a Wakanda flourish? Not exactly. [Gang leaders met face-to-face in Newark to talk peace, NJ.com, June 15, 2019]:

      Newark gang members and activists working for peace in the city gathered Saturday and reached a truce aimed at reducing gang violence.

      So-called “violence interrupters” and gang members gathered for private peace talks at 3 p.m. The talks were followed by a 5 p.m. “Kings Stop Killing Kings” rally at Newark’s Symphony Hall and march down Broad Street.

      A draft of the the agreement, which was passed out to those who attended the peace talks between the sometimes rival gangs, stated that public places such as schools, houses of worship, recreation centers and funeral homes would be “designated buffer or neutral zones against violence.”

      The agreement went on to outline expectations for the gang members, including not using social media to “dispute, call for, glorify or insinuate the killing of a member of another organization,” and not invading “upon each other’s community or neighborhood” without prior notice.

      Gang leaders sat around four tables, organized in a square in the center of the Terrace Ballroom, while Newark Mayor Ras Baraka gave an impassioned speech. He implored the gang leaders to cease violence and instead turn their energy towards building the community by doing things like purchasing empty buildings to start businesses or homes.

      “I’m not into coddling grown men,” he said. “Some of you guys know better…It is more comfortable for you to act like you are asleep, to blend in with everybody else, when you know better. And the reality of that is you just don’t just have no courage. You’re just scared.”

      Following the speeches from other anti-violence advocates, spectators and families were asked to leave the ballroom while leaders negotiated the truce. Cassady Fendlay, a spokeswoman for the Justice League NYC who was involved in the talks, told NJ Advance Media that the gang leaders reached a truce Saturday night.

      Over 100 people gathered outside the hall and began marching down Broad Street, under the watchful eyes of Newark police officers wearing bulletproof vests. Children sat on their father’s shoulders and young people carried signs and flags.

      “Stop the violence. Peace in the streets.” the marchers yelled as pedestrians on the sidewalk stopped to watch, some raising their fists in solidarity.

      Organizers said the crowd was there in honor of Nipsey Hussle, a Grammy-nominated rapper, who was killed on March 31, just one day before he was slated to meet with the Los Angeles Police Department about curbing street violence. Hussle, who was born with the name Ermias Asghedom, was known for giving back to his community.

      “This rally and peace march is a tribute to the late, great Nipsey Hussle, whose tireless work on behalf of social justice inspired countless activists to join our movement,” Carmen Perez, executive director of the Gathering For Justice and a former co-chair of the national Women’s March, said.

      The demonstrators marched about a mile, stopping at Washington Park around 6 p.m. There, several city employees — including one that offered to help residents find jobs and another that provided information from the Department of Health and Community Wellness — awaited the demonstrators.

      From a small stage in the park, actors, musicians and social media influencers encouraged the crowd to pursue nonviolent conflict resolution and told their own stories of getting shot, or explained the emotional trauma of a family member dying from gang violence.

      “There is a war on us, why are we at war with each other?” actress and producer Yandy Smith-Harris said.

      Other speakers included Justice League NYC member Tamika Mallory, hip hop artist and author Chi Ali, and leading “violence interrupters” and community organizers like Shanduke McPhatter and Jamila T. Davis.

      The Newark rally follows a similar demonstration in The Bronx last month where former and active gang members called for better conflict resolution among community members and a stronger City crisis management system, according to News 12.

      Still, violence remains an intractable problem in Newark. On Saturday, just minutes from where the gang leaders met to discuss peace, two men in masks pulled up on a woman in a car and shot her in the back. The woman was not seriously injured and that incident has not been determined to be gang-related.

      For the smattering of nonprofit and activism groups that organized The Bronx and Newark rallies, this street crime is exactly what they hope to prevent. Perez said she hopes “Kings Stop Killing Kings” becomes a movement that impacts not just Newark and New York, but the whole nation.

      Can you count the absurdities in the above story? This writer noted 18 mind-blowing admissions, not the least of which members of the elected city government actively working with known black gang members…

      Just your latest reminder, Wakanda isn’t real.

        See, you can’t terrorize and shake down Whitey if you are “Kangs killing Kangs”. How are you going to keep the genocide of the White race going if you keep taking out your soldiers on each other?

      2. Name ONE other “community” that has “violence interrupters”… or needs them.

        They are not like us.  They have to go.  They don’t have to go back, but they can’t stay here.

      3. “Kangz Stop Killin’ Kangz N Sheeit”

        “There is a war on us, why are we at war with each other?” actress and producer Yandy Smith-Harris said.

        I was wondering when they’d get around to that. Underlying all of these “Stop Da Bilence” initiatives is the implication that blacks should be killing whites instead of each other.

        I guess “Stop Killing, Period” is too much to ask for Africans In America. 😐

        And the response to this reminder will be to double down with make-believe by having even more blacks in commercials, ads, TV shows and movies, who are all cool, hip, suave, and smart.

        Surely that will change the negro…any day now.

        I stopped by Kroger’s yesterday to pick up a few items about the store. Every other aisle had these big cardboard advertisements for some such thing or another in the store. After passing by about 5 of these things, it suddenly occurred to me that they all had blacks on them. I bounded back to my starting point to look at them all again, and, sure enough, 4 of the 5 I had passed at that point were all filled with smiling, shiny, cool, hip and suave negroes. After making my way thru the rest of the store, out of about a dozen of these ad-signs, 9 out of 12 were nothing but blacks.

        The absurdity: this Kroger’s and my neighborhood is (thankfully) 97% white and blacks rarely, if ever, shop at this particular one.

        WTF???

        And as another day dawns in BRA. The mayor of Phoenix is apologizing for the bad behavior of the city cops taking down a sweet innocent family whose daughter swiped a doll from a Family Dollar store. Wouldn’t say if the perps were black but did say the daddy and unwed mommy were named Dravon and Iesha. Of course their huckster lawyer wants $10 million from the city to settle. And of course the only reason the cops pulled their guns on the family is because they would not comply withe demands of the officers. So what we have is another winner in the million dollar sweepstakes of clown world.

      10. Two words for you guys – Anthony Imperiale.

        Big tony kept the north ward safe during and after the Newark riots. He did so the way neighborhoods had been kept safe for a century before. He kicked the asses of those who came in intending to do harm

        That was the last time Newark, or at least a part of Newark, was safe.

        Years ago I had to stay in a hotel in downtown Newark for work. I felt completely safe–because standing in the lobby was a serious looking guard with a shot-gun taller than I was. 😉

        Likewise, I went to an evening concert at the PAC in Newark many years ago. Knowing there would likely be security/metal detectors, I was forced to leave everything home.

        Wondering how they would pull this off, we walked out of the center close to midnight-the witching hour-into an army of police that lined the path from the door to the parking garage.

        No lie, they must’ve had 60-80 cops assigned just to the duty of keeping patrons safe as they returned to their vehicles after midnight in Newark.

        After everyone was hustled to their cars and on the road, the city was returned to its BRA state and the cops scurried back to the station. I’m sure the PAC had a moat that was filled with holy water after everyone left to ward off the evil spirits that inhabit the city.

        I believe Cory Booker was mayor at the time.

        So you know what you can expect should Cory become president. You’ll be safe till you get to your car, then you’re on your own.

      19. Downtown Newark is undergoing some redevelopment – the old Hahne’s store was converted into a Whole Foods store with apartments on top, a real supermarket opened in Central Ward in 2012 and cranes dot the skyline. If the town is redeveloped, where were the locals go?

        I recently drove through nearby Orange, NJ, and saw more Hispanics on the street than Blacks. Urban leaders like Hispanics because they are less crime-prone and possess a better work ethic and attitude, open little businesses and will forcefully ethnic cleanse the Blacks out of the neighborhood. Again, where will the locals go?

      21. As a title for the rally, “Kings Stop Killing Kings” is nothing more than a display of the toxic egotism that many blacks are infected with. A more realistic and accurate name would have been “Gutter Trash Stop Killing Gutter Trash” but that wouldn’t have gone over very well as blacks believe the ridiculous myth that, back in Africa, their ancestors were all “kangs and kweens.”

        As I’ve related before, I once worked with Africans straight out of Africa and every last one of them egotistically and quite haughtily claimed to be the “son of a king!” To keep it short, one finally admitted that all that meant was that his father was the oldest person in the village and everyone came to him for advice. I suspect that “kweens” also occupied such “lofty” positions as well.

        In any case, the grandiose delusions, toxic egotism and rich and vibrant albeit childish fantasy life of blacks in America does nothing but make them look like a parade of ridiculous clowns and desperate fools but they’re too invested in their delusions to see that everyone is laughing at them. It’s like a collection of poor little slum dwelling peasants from nowhere (and nothing) claiming to be royalty. How cute. Bless their pointy little heads.

        Oh, it’s even more insidious than that. I recently heard a radio ad for flea and tick collars that featured (what was supposed to be) the “voices” of several dogs who were worried about going outside and were expressing those fears in the whiniest, white-sounding voices possible. Until, that is, they were reassured, by a dog with the wise voice of an old Negro, that the science of flea and tick collars would protect them all from harm. It was revolting. And that was radio!

      26. While this pow wow takes place in Newark down in Atlanta blacks are congregated for the End Mass Incarceration Conference. Connecting the dots that one behavior (epidemic violence) leads to the other (mass incarceration) eludes the two groups. Wherever they gather mass stupidity is on display for all to see.

        ‘Rapper T.I. and Atlanta church work to end mass imprisonment’

        June 17

        ATLANTA (AP) – Music artist T.I. is lending his voice to a project involving the late Martin Luther King Jr.’s home church in Atlanta.

        Ebenezer Baptist Church plans a three-day conference at the historic church in Atlanta to address mass incarcerations. The Rev. Raphael Warnock said in a statement that the End Mass Incarceration Conference will run Monday through Wednesday at the church.

        Warnock said goals of the conference include helping communities to fight the rise of the prison industrial complex in the United States and systems that unfairly imprison people of color…

        From what I understand, they were pulling bodies out of the sewers and abandoned building for years after the riots. I’m sorry, ‘protests’😏. Back then they just didn’t give them space to get in touch with their destructive side.

        Imperiale kept the north ward safe during and after the riots. If you were foolish enough to wander into the north ward looking for trouble, chances are it would find you first.

        But that was back when neighborhoods meant something. It was also a time when the cops would show up and ask the group of armed, white men, “is everything all right?”.

        The answer was always ‘yes’.

        I recall watching a movie years ago (don’t remember the title) with the line “Ape shall not kill Ape”.

        You don’t have to use your imagination.Just catch the Andy Griffin Show. The unarmed Sheriff had a one deputy swat team.Barney carried his assault revolver’s onr bullet in his shirt pocket.Of course,the pleasant little berg of Mayberry was a White town.Looked kinda nice though despite it’s lack of vibrant diversity.

        Koreans in the ATL hate TNB and the perpetrators there of.

        Mayberry was fake, a construct.

        REAL white small towns all over the USA weren’t much different, except the people carried guns. At least where I grew up.

        As a kid no one locked their doors, but everyone had a gun. Grandma had a 32 auto in the glove box.

        Was it ‘Hidden Figures”?

        Was Woopie Goldberg in it?

      61. @ShermanFan

        So true. It was only since the 50’s that gentlemen were persuaded (by making it illegal) to leave their pistols home.

        Before that, no gentleman would leave the house without slipping a small, hammerless pistol in his overcoat. The firearm industry had an entire line of pistols dedicated to solely that purpose.

        Now, we’re convinced that we need a $150 custom IWB holster and a $3000 hi-capacity race gun to protect ourselves instead of just following the design of our predecessors.

      62. The North Ward in Newark is actually kind of nice. Cubans and Colombians. Beautiful hot women, chic looking restaurants and stores.

        Nope. Newark is in eastern Essex County and I used to live in the still good west Essex area. We were taxed heavily to help subsidize Newark.

        The young men want to join gangs. They don’t expect to live long, but it’ll be fun until they meet their inevitable early demise.

        Ironbound and Forest Hills are still good.

        I still wouldn’t walk around either at night. Ironbound has great Portuguese and Spanish restaurants.

        I’d disagree entirely about Forest Hill. There might still be some impressive structures there but you wouldn’t catch me dead there.

        The only good part of Newark is… across the river in Kearny and North Arlington.

        There are no good parts anymore. Haven’t been since the 60’s.

        More reason (as if you should need any) to keep the Talmudvision OUT of your house.  Not just for the kids’ sakes, but your own.

        Kearny smells like ass.

        My Grandmother had a .22 Marlin rifle and was deadly accurate with it.Nobody,NOBODY messed with her. Even Grandpa’s dog stayed off the couch when she was around.

        Thank you. I’ll pay attention. June through September is usually the worst. In my experience, 90 percent of New Jersey is great. I’ll be there all day tomorrow, starting in Haskell.

        When watching anything on TV (very little now, canceled the Dish) and these idiot ads come on i can’t help from calling out the bullshit. I think my wife finally gets it now as she agrees with me now instead of dismissing my comments.

        Conceal Carry pistols are coming back. But the laws in many states restrict the types and caliber.
        I have a variety for the day and dress. A nice 380 that fits in the inner breast pocket of my suit jacket.
        A nice 40 that’s almost always with me, or a slim 40 when I’m in shorts and a t-shirt.
