We report, you decide: the Junior Edition

Looks like Chokwe Junior decided to pass off a quote from Frantz Fanon's "The Wretched of the Earth" as his own in in the first sentence of his speech yesterday. See for yourself.

Each generation must out of relative obscurity discover its mission, fulfill it, or betray it. In underdeveloped countries the preceding generations have both resisted the work or erosion carried by colonialism and also helped on the maturing of the struggles of today. We must rid ourselves of the habit, now that we are in the thick of the fight, of minimizing the action of our fathers or of feigning incomprehension when considering their silence and passivity. They fought as well as they could, with the arms that they possessed then; and if the echoes of their struggle have not resounded in the international arena, we must realize that the reason for this silence lies less in their lack of heroism than in the fundamentally different international situation of our time. It needed more than one native to say "We've had enough"; more than one peasant rising crushed, more than one demonstration put down before we could today hold our own, certain in our victory. As for we who have decided to break the back of colonialism, our historic mission is to sanction all revolts, all desperate actions, all those abortive attempts drowned in rivers of blood. Page 206, The Wretched of the Earth, Frantz Fanon

That is one use of the quote. Here is how it is used by other revolutionaries. So did Octavian attempt to pass off someone's statement as his own or was he being cute and hoping no one would discover the source of the quote?

It's becoming clear Chokie A is a joke.

If this guy is a lawyer, why is he not listed in the Ms Bar Directory?

Going to law school and passing the MS bar are 2 different things.

Kingfish said...

Look harder. He is barred:

Name: Chokwe Antar Lumumba
Company: Lumumba & Assoc
Admit Date: 10/02/2008
Physical Address: XXXXXXXX

Status: Active

Kingfish that is the smartest thing you have done all day and I am surprised you did that

He wouldn't take the bar exam cause they told him he couldn't wear those girly hats and dresses in the courtroom...and he insisted on being referred to as Ms. Chaka Chaka Chaka Khan

Why was he barred KF?

In this case, I do believe 'barred'
means he has been admitted to the bar; i.e. passed the bar exam.

Kingfish said...

Why was he barred? Because he passed the bar.

I hate to talk about the dead, however, I feel the father lied (or covered up) about his health problems during the election. Now, the son stated he “co-authored” his father platform? (Truth or lie?) Now, the son quotes from other peoples work and doesn’t give credit. The son is not to be trusted……..

Absolutely none of this matters, all of the folks that come on here and leaves comments hoping and praying for Harvey or Preister or Yarber or whoever, it simply does not matter. Chokwe Antar Lumumba will be elected overwhelmingly the next mayor of Jackson Mississippi. I would bet the title to my house and car on it. Wait till those ads hit the Jackson Advocate for him, this thing is over folks, go spend some money now in hip Madistan or Brandon or at the Bass pro in pearl. O V E R, ANTAR is IN IN IN!

I was excited when Brother Chokwe was elected. If (there's no doubt in my mind he'll get it) Chokwe Jr. gets elected I might have a stroke. This is getting really good.

Lumumba and Associates at Quinn's address? That's interesting. His practice is probably similar to that of 'the dentist' at the corner of Northside and State. But, anyway, he's clean and articulate, as if that matters in Jacktown.

4:25, stopping speaking in code. What are you attempting to convey regarding similar practices.

4:25 Uncoded said...

5:07; I didn't realize there would be people too stupid to figure it out. Let me see. The comparison is this: A 'dentist' who opens a shop in an old beat down house and advertises that he accepts medicaid and SNAP and can install crowns 'today' is sorta similar to a lawyer nobody ever heard of who advertises his address as that of some past candidate for mayor who nobody ever heard of.

Does that help a bit?

5:07 here. Try again. Your logic (or lack thereof) makes no sense.

I assumed you googled the address Lumumba listed on the bar directory, saw the name Quinn, and thought you had unraveled a conspiracy.

After seeing Quinn Insurance and Investments on Google at that same address, a curious person might have wondered whether this was a rental and one of the two was no longer at the address. You didn't do that.

A logical person might have taken the next step, and determined what Mrs. Quinn's address was before spouting off that Lumumba and Quinn shared an office. Had you done that, you would have found your claim to be incorrect.

Another logical step would have been to check the Department of Insurance's website to see if Mrs. Quinn was even licensed to sell insurance and offer financial services. You would have found that she is not. However, you likely would have found another Quinn, in Jackson, licensed to sell insurance and investments. A logical person probably would have determined that this Quinn was a different person.

Furthermore, what does having a beat up - although if you'd actually driven by, you'd be able to tell its been renovated - dental office, which installs crowns - as most dentists office do - have to do with a lawyer - who you incorrectly assumed - lists his address at that of a former Mayoral candidate - who you obviously have heard of. It makes no sense. You might as well be comparing an apple to a rock. I mean, the only similarity I can figure out is that both practice's clientele probably look alike, and maybe their bank accounts don't have much in them. But I guess you're not man - or woman - enough to just come out and say that.

Also, unless Fondren Dental is selling groceries, he is not accepting SNAP. Try again.

As a long term property owner in the area where the dentist is located, I applaud him for improving that corner. Us folks who have owned homes in that area since before the Stokes infestation appreciate anyone who adds some value over there.

Thank you, Regina, at 10:02 for that stupid, boring post. Who are you trying to impress?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.
