A primer on Stokes

Jackson City Councilman Kenneth Stokes managed to get the attention of the national media.  If you are not familiar with Stokes, here are some videos JJ has posted of Mr. Stokes over the years.  They will give you a true idea of Mr. Stokes in action.

Stokes unplugged:

Stokes on WLBT: Who killed da Mayor?

Stokes opposes investigations into water/sewer thefts:

Stokes rants about police chases.

Stokes tirade

Stokes says keeping neighborhood nice is "crossburnings"

Stokes calls neighbors who want to keep neighborhood clean Uncle Toms.

Stokes & Pete Perry go at it. One of my favorites.

Connie Cochran protects right to vote of District 2 and 4 residents while Stokes tries to keep them from voting. Great exchange.

Stokes & Pete Perry go at it again.

and again

Stokes stiffs bus company

Stokes throws tantrum when no one seconds his motion to appoint son to one board and Chokwe to  Hinds Community College Board of Trustees:

One of the best politicians I've ever seen. Knows how to appeal to his voters. How can he miss by telling his constituents that he'll create a safe zone for them so they can go to neighboring cities, rob businesses, and escape back into the city with no fear of being arrested. He's got a job for life.

This fool's days are numbered. I hope him and his butt-ugly wife catch two in the side of the head. Pop, pop. Shhhh. Goodfellas-style.

National shame said...

If a white man made these comments, he would be put in jail and forced to resign. Mr Stokes is a total racist, idiot and a disgrace to our entire state now that his ignorance has been shown to the nation via the media. Let's force him out

Hey, Mr. Stokes: Consider this--

1. Many of your young black male constituents imperil your district on a daily basis FAR MORE than any police officers. Would you "shout out" a call to stone them? (At least you would be targeting the correct individuals.) OF COURSE NOT! You'd probably then be stoned yourself, and called a racist.
2. Have you ever passed ANY bar exam anywhere, any time?

3. Do you, or have you ever had, a source of income beyond your Councilman job?

You are barking up the wrong tree. In psychology it's called a "displacement reaction." Because of fear and anxiety over a certain subject, you "displace" your fear to another object in order to avoid confronting the real cause of your fear.

Mr. Stokes--I'd welcome your ranting and raving over the deplorable state of educational attainment and out-of-wedlock births in your district. These are the real causes of your rage and misery in your district. I advise you to turn your anger and aggression towards the proper root causes.

he is simply a reflection of his ignorant racist constituents.

Normal every day business in the city of Jackson. How about moving the capital city to another city. Choose any one of them, it would be an improvement over Jackson. Put Stokes back on the streets where he belongs.

Something tells me that Thurgood Marshall would be pissed if he found out that somebody like Stokes went to a law school named after him.

How the heck did Stokes get in and then make it through law school by the way?

Nut job. Very ignorant. My guess is borderline MR.

You can't blame poor Mr Stokes for his comments. He is off is medication, and is suffering from mental illness.His symptoms only show when he opens his mouth!

Stokes speaks for the City and its people. Thousands would follow him into battle.

Wrong, 12:17. Stokes speaks for Ward 3. He does not speak for the rest of Jackson.

Serious question. Can a cty change its state capital?

Anonymous said...

Believe me, many many black citizens of Jackson and of Mississippi are deeply embarrassed by this man. He is not mentally ill as such, he is a racist, pure and simple. Under the guise of taking care of "his people" he parades the worst image possible. He is responsible for the growth of south Madison County and west Rankin County. All alone, he represents a type of hate rarely seen. Perfect example of hiding a bad motive under a good one.

Anonymous said...

@1:13 What does "cty" represent? City? County? I guess, it would have to pass the Legislature? Can you imagine the backlash it would cause. All Atlases, all maps, all textbooks would need changing. Mississippi would be an even worse butt of racial comments and boycotts. Really much cheaper and cleaner to help Jackson get better. It is a really good city with many facilities and schools and medical centers. What is needed is an escape from Kenneth Stokes and people of his ilk and better infrastructure. Money will cure the infrastructure. I am at a loss as to what will free us from Stokes.

Yes, a state can change it's capital city. Several states have done so in the past.
We should be shopping for a new capital city. Some city that has elected officials that respect the law, does not provide a safe haven for criminals, and a city that respects all citizens.

Anonymous said...

And, 4:45, in twenty years that city would probably be facing the same situation as Jackson. Surrounded by suburbs but with the 'new capitol city' becoming the hole of the donut.

Jackson has not been the shithole it is today forever. Only a few decades ago its leadership, as well as that of the county, were completely different than they are today.

Your concept of moving the capitol isn't going to solve a damn thing except make you feel better for a little while. Look at what is causing Jackson - and our state's capitol - the problem it currently faces.

Anonymous said...

The problem Jackson has is with it's leadership. As long as the capital city is filled with a majority of crooks they will continue to elect crooks. Move the capital city to a place where the crooks are not in the majority. Move the capital to a city where the elected officials do not ask the citizens to protect the crooks from all law enforcement.
Just think what Jackson will be if all govt. offices and personnel were removed from the city. The crooks would be reduced to stealing and killing each other. Sounds like a good idea to me.

4:45, it's been more than two decades, but I generally agree with what you are saying. Jackson hasn't always had the problems that it has today. It is apparent that, for some time now, Jackson area politicians, particularly Stokes, use racism and scare tactics to fuel animosity towards whitey so that they can then use that animosity to attract votes for election to political office.

Well, whitey didn't elect Stokes into office, and whitey is not responsible for the national black eye that Stokes has given the City of Jackson. So, if the black constituents who elected Stokes don't want him to represent them in political office any longer, then it will have to be those black constituents who vote Stokes out of office. The question is, do the constituents of Stokes approve of his conduct, or do they want to do something about replacing him?

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
