Police Arrest Man for Drinking Water

Today in Trenton, the police arrested a Black man for drinking water. While investigating an abduction of a young girl the Black man was seen sitting on the steps behind Jr. #3 about 100 feet from his home. Police stopped and asked his name. When he said he didn't want to talk with them he was eventually surrounded by five police officers and arrested. All this while some young girl was in danger somewhere else in the city. The police priority was harassing this Black man instead of finding out what happened to a frightened girl somewhere in the western part of the city.

Last week I called for a rally against the racists and sexist attacks against Black women. This was precipitated by Mayor Reed Gusciora's tirade against Robin Vaughn. I subsequently called off the rally due to concerns about spreading the Covid19 virus. That was true. In the interest of total transparency and truth there was more to the story. Also involved with the decision was the fact I had spoken with Andrew Bobbitt who advised me because the rally would go past the 10 person limit set by the governors order that I may be liable to pay a $5000 fine. I can't afford that. So for a combination of those two reasons I took my name off the rally. Talking with others involved, I knew it would go on as scheduled but with fewer people. I had gotten calls from around the state and because of the health concerns I didn't want a lot of people gathered together. The morning of the rally when I arrived at city hall one the first persons to approach me was a police official who asked if I was the one sponsoring the rally. I could truthfully say no. The rally went on, I think it accomplished its goals. I felt I owed all of you who have supported The Nubian News these many years the complete truth. - Kamau Kujichagulia

RALLY CANCELLED
It has been decided in the interest of community health to cancel.

05/05/2020

We set up an interview with the mayor, then he cancelled. He said he would email a statement which he didn't. We see him plastered all over the white media but he won't respond to the Black media in the Black/Brown town which elected him.

Jersey City creates coronavirus relief fund: $1.5 million and counting

Had we planned ahead we wouldn't be in this fix. Plan now. What's the plan. Planning is why we vote people into office. If you don't have a plan, they can sit over here with me. Plan Now. And when it is time, implement, then improve, the plan.

Jersey City has established a coronavirus relief fund for the city’s most vulnerable residents and has already raised $1.5 million, Mayor Steve Fulop announced Friday morning.

The World Knows an Apocalyptic Pandemic Is Coming

They knew this was going to happen and they did nothing!

"The GPMB insists it is possible to render microbial outbreaks to controllable, containable scale—if humanity has the political and financial will to do so."

"In May 1989, Nobel laureate Joshua Lederberg gathered"

"a report that drew sufficient interest at U.S. President Bill Clinton’s White House to prompt the formal classification of emerging diseases as national-security threats in 1996."

"In 1994 I published my book on the subject, The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance"

"And in 2000, my book Betrayal of Trust: The Collapse of Global Public Health demonstrated that outbreaks were aided and abetted by inept health systems, human behavior, and the complete lack of consistent political and financial support for disease-fighting preparedness everywhere in the world."

Who Do We Expect to Sacrifice?

This country has now deposited its massive, collapsing weight on a small, utterly unsupported group called the “essential workers.” It includes the health care personnel I’ve shyly stalked for all these years. It includes others too: home-care and assisted-living health workers who keep the elderly and infirm alive for minimal pay. Underpaid grocery store workers, some of whom are pressured by management not to wear masks or gloves because customer comfort matters more than employee death. Amazon workers are laboring under conditions that do not prioritize their safety. Farm workers—the very immigrants federal policy has worked to keep out—are laboring in fields with little protection (let alone social distancing) so that the “nonessential” among us can eat fresh strawberries at home.

It’s a curious feature of this virus-convulsed world that the people classified as essential are being treated as expendable. So-called “essential” workers—most of whom do not have employer health care—are having to risk infection by taking the subway for long commutes while less “essential” people get to remain safely at home. (The public transit workers are “essential” too—you can tell because as of Monday seven of New York’s MTA workers had died, 333 workers had tested positive, and 2,700 were in quarantine. Soon, the best measure of how “essential” any group was will be the death count.) It’s become the brutal and telling euphemism of our era: The labor is essential. The lives, it seems, are not.

This is ugly but not unprecedented. Many will say that this is the core of capitalism, and that’s largely true. But there is an even more obvious system that praises expendability: war. Anytime a group is hailed as “heroes,” you’re hearing a costless effort to elevate that group into an exalted category in payment for their lives—as we do to soldiers before sending them off. This unilateral contract depends on one side not getting to have needs and the other having too many. We require your service with the minimal possible provisioning. Should you die, we’ll laud your sacrifice after the fact.

Don't be fooled about loans to small businesses. You can only get a loan if you have employees. 95% of Black/Brown businesses do not have employees.

We, I, ask that all pray for traveling mercies for the 250 + African Americans in flight to the Jamestown section of Accra Ghana. My Son, Diallo Sumbry, referred to it as the “Soul Plane” and added that hot sauce was mandatory lol I’m giving a special shoutout to the National NAACP, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated and personally most important to me the Adinkra Group (which my Son is the founder and CEO of). Jamestown2Jamestown, in my opinion, is the most “Mass African Diaspora International Interaction with the Continent of African” since the beginning of our “Maafa”(google it)❤️🖤💚 More than one week will be spent in Ghana networking, establishing long term relationships, touring and most importantly making spiritual connections with our Ancestors and people. Mr. Derrick Johnson, National President of the NAACP, OKOMFO (Priest) Diallo Sumbry and the ABSOLUTE most visionary President at this time on the entire CONTINENT OF AFRICA, Nana Akufo-Addo the WORLD owes you all its gratitude and respect. GOD AND THE ANCESTORS ARE SURELY PLEASED🙏🏿💯🙏🏿🧠
