It's Stokes.

A dumb bastard calling someone else a dumb bastard. Stokes called Rankin Sheriff Bryan Bailey a dumb bastard at a press conference this afternoon. ‎ See WAPT for video. It will be posted later on this site.

Hey mayor...you need to man up, refute Stokes in public (not on twitter) and distance yourself...especially if you want any state funds for infrastructure repairs. Tick, tock, tick, tock...time is a wasting. (You can also forget about keeping the airport as well with this incident. I'm sure Senator Harkins is loving this as his bill will get more and more support in the legislature)

Hope Stokes gets pulled over in Rankin County..........

3:32, which of those gutless council members will actually begin the impeachment? He is totally out of control.

He also called Ridgeland PD "thugs with guns and badges".

I'm out. I won't set foot in Jackson again to spend a dime. Stokes has made it clear he doesn't want to do with any whites and only cares about "black babies". Until business leaders wake up and come out against this racist, a**hole I will not support their efforts. No more Babalu, No more Sal and Mookies, No more Cups, No more ANYTHING in Jackson. Madison, Flowood, and Ridgeland are much nicer and DON'T CREATE A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT TOWARDS WHITE PEOPLE.

Bye-bye Jackson.

The City needs to address this tersely, and shut Stokes down. Protecting fleeing criminals from law enforcement in other jurisdictions, is a thoughtless response. How about telling people to clear the streets when they hear sirens? Or, better yet, lock up the thugs yourself, so they won't be on the loose in the metro area. With an eroding tax base, an under-performing school system, a pending departure of water treatment revenue from Madison and Rankin counties, and the potential loss of the airport, there's not going to be anything positive for the city left.

People are doing exactly what Stokes want them to do. He is wanting a city of only black thugs, criminals, and him. That way there isn't anyone with any common decency or common knowledge to see what a fool he is. It is easy to be Mr. Big when all you allow around is the scum of the earth.

UNBELIEVABLE!! Stokes called the Rankin County Sheriff a "Dumb Bastard" and the Governor of Mississippi "George Wallace, Jr.", apparently all in the same interview. Go watch it on the WAPT Facebook page. Glad I'm not under the jurisdiction of Jackson politicians - just wow!

Anonymous said...

4:28, Stokes is an idiot, and you are misguided to delegate the comments of one man (who the local media happens to adore)to the entire city. Your loss.

By the way, I'm white, and so are well over 30,000 residents of Jackson (a greater number than any other city in the metro). Stokes is trying to reduce this issue to a black v. white thing. Please, rise above it and leave the race-baiting to the children.

And here I thought posters enjoyed elected leaders speaking their mind and thumbing their nose up at "PC culture." The comedic stylings of Phil Bryant, Gene Alday, and Bubba Carpenter were met with "ya know, I agree with him" and "he's right." But a city councilman--representing a city many posters here have disdain for--has irrevocably damaged your delicate sensibilities. Carry on, whiny babies.

4:51. My loss? Of what? Being a target of aggression and racism? Missing pot holes? Feeling unsafe walking to my car?

Sure, I love the Mayflower but I have other places to get similar food.

I love Spice Ave but can do without Indian food in the face of hate that the City with Soul wants to perpetrate.

I sure have not heard any outrage from any city leaders or business leaders so they must be OK with Stokes statements.

Anonymous said...

4:51, Stokes' idiotic, criminal-protecting-harboring comments wouldn't be viewed as having anything to do with black, white or anything racial, EXCEPT for the undeniable fact that Stokes specifically called on "black leadership" (not white, asian or latino leadership) to attack law enforcement. Stokes isn't "attempting" to make the issue about race. Unfortunately he has already successfully managed to interject race into the issue through his inciting comments, making the matter even more controversial. In case you forgot what he said, I've copied and pasted Stokes' quote from another article where it's posted on this JJ site, as follows:

"What I suggest is we get the black leadership together, and as these jurisdictions come into Jackson we throw rocks and bricks and bottles at them. That will send a message we don't want you in here".

The citizens of Ward 3 need to realize that they have a huge monkey on their back that they need to get rid of. Koko Scrotes needs to also be very cautious about using the word "bastard" in such a derogatory manner, he could piss off a large percentage of his constituents.

Anonymous said...

Nobody denies what Stokes said, but Jackson is much more than that one man or his ward. Most people in Jackson don't approve of him, and the city counsel and the mayor did come out against him.

I'll edit what I said. It's about race to him. Obviously you let it become about that for you as well, even though it's childish. That's sad because we live in the blackest state in the nation. I wish you would rise above it.

Kenneth Stokes quote: "The children and citizens of the City of Jackson are already burdened by living under the ever-present terror of the confederate flag being flown all over the capital city on every state building. Dangerous car chases throughout Jackson neighborhoods by outside jurisdictions are adding insult to injury. This must stop!"

NO Stokes! The children and citizens of the City of Jackson AND the surrounding jurisdictions are burdened by living under the ever-present terror of the CRIMINALS THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO PROTECT! YOU are the only one playing the race card here! As Sheriff Bailey said, this is not a matter of black & white. It is an issue of RIGHT & WRONG! You do not speak on behalf of the majority of the citizens of Jackson, nor it's leaders. You are an embarrassment to not only the City of Jackson, but to the entire human race. You SHOULD be an embarrassment to yourself every time you step foot out of the house & attempt to even speak period, especially in public - but at this point it's clear that'll never be the case, so it's just time for you to GO! Hopefully you've just made that a much more viable option finally. The citizens of Jackson can only hope that something good actually comes our way as a result of your most recent dumbass remarks.

6:16, When a political leader of Jackson requests criminal attacks on law enforcement officers who are doing their job to chase and catch criminals who flee to Jackson, it leaves me with a very unsafe feeling in my gut when I think about being in Jackson for anything. That has nothing to do with race.

But, add to that fact that Stokes, a black man, calls for the "black leadership" in 86% black Jackson to make those illegal, criminal attacks on law enforcement, and it gives me greater pause. I wonder whether Stokes is just trying to use his political position to call for the attacks on law enforcement, or whether he is trying to use his race to call for the attacks on law enforcement. If he's using race to call for illegal/criminal attacks on people, what's the difference between him and the KKK or the Nazis?

...but Jackson is much more than that one man or his ward.

Not to outsiders. Stokes has done irreparable harm to Jackson. It was bad before. Without a black leadership class willing to stand up, condemn and force his resignation it now has become exponentially worse.

Sheriff Bailey's video response is up on CL. I watched the entire thing and am very impressed with him, his attitude, and his expression of his continued respect for Hinds County, Jackson, and all of our law abiding citizens, police officers, leaders, etc., except for Stokes, of course. What a respectable, rational man. God bless him. As one of the law abiding citizens of Jackson, I thank you for your understanding that this is simply one buffoon who does not represent the majority of the city of Jackson, and those of you "boycott Jackson" idiots should watch Sheriff Bailey's interview and take note.

Anonymous said...

Stokes is not taken seriously outside of his ward (other than by WLBT, WAPT, and WJTV, and of course, by some of you commenters).

You are assuming that the citizenry (its not 86% black, btw) will take this buffoon's suggestion - which is absurd. As to 7:03, the black leadership class has condemned him. As far as forcing his resignation, how exactly do you go about doing that? What are the exact grounds for impeachment and what process is due in impeachment proceedings?

. . . And finally, no one is saying Stokes is better than white supremacists. Where you are getting the notion that they are I beyond me.

Anonymous said...

Watch the video. The twit from the Jackson Advocate reads Stokes a three minute lob question about the First Amendment (which was never the issue), that boiled down to "Do you think the First Amendment protects your right to speak as a citizen?" It would have made the Maoists at JFP proud.

But the punchline was, as always, Stokes. Rather than simply saying "Yes, I think controversial speech is protected," he said "There is no question Kenneth Stokes is a citizen. And anybody who say different is a damn liar."

You don't have to mock him. You just have to let him talk.

Sad and scary that Stokes--a stupid, racist buffoon of a man--is on the Jackson City Council. Our capital city has enough serious problems and certainly does not need nor deserve Stokes' incompetence.

With Stokes' recent inflammatory absurd remarks, it is hoped & prayed that no harm comes to anyone in law enforcement or some gullible innocent who follows Stokes' rabble-rousing provocations. If a thug provokes, well...I hope/pray no harm comes to law enforcement.

Mayor Yarber and the Jackson City Council need to have a strong, really strong, Come-to-Jesus intervention with Stokes. They should DEMAND his immediate resignation.

It is obvious that Stokes is lacking in judgement and is incompetent of progressive leadership. His comments to the media have been incendiary and he is incapable of understanding what the results of his words could be.

Could it be that Stokes is wanting a "Ferguson" to happen in Jackson? You can't fix stupid and a stupid racist like Stokes is downright dangerous.

He said an awful thing. However, he is right about police chases. I do not want me or my family killed because an officer chases some petty criminal at 100 mph. Many have been killed by that irresponsible action.

Tell da troof, Danny Mollisack! said...

As much as some people would like to dismiss this as "one man", there are deeper issues here. First is that Stokes is in a position of power over the city of Jackson and, as such, has influence on how policy is enacted and how money is spent. This takes the problem out of the realm of a single man.

Worse, however, is the fact that Stokes verbalizes what a significant number of people in Jackson believe. Ward 3 continues to reward Stokes and his wife with election victory after election victory. If they disagreed with his years of idiocy they would have sent him home long ago.

This is not just one man. The sad thing is if Stokes is removed, Ward 3 will find another one to replace him. The problem is far deeper than Stokes.

How many national companies have pulled the plug on conducting business in Jackson because of this racist man. KIS is a major leader in the capital city of our state. He has made all the national news with his statements. When will the other leaders do something with him. His actions has given this state a black eye unlike anytime in our history. This city will only continue being an ever enlarging sewer while leaders like Stokes are in power. Only by prosecuting him will the city I am so proud of have a chance to reach its potential as so many other major cities have been able to achieve.

Stokes takes a page out of the Trump playbook and suburbanites do what they do best: Get Mad Online. You all say you won't spend money in Jackson. Geez, it's not like y'all eat at nice restaurants and shop at nice stores anyway.

It's time for Mayor Yarber to step up and set the record straight on race relations in the City of Jackson, show that those relations are not as portrayed by Stokes, and give the Jackson-Metro area confidence that criminals won't be harbored with safe haven in Jackson. The truth is, if Stokes' stance on harboring criminals and his racist attitude actually reflects Jackson's attitude, which is what the public is seeing in the media right now, then flight out of Jackson by business and individuals is certainly condoned, and will probably increase at an elevated rate.

Mayor Yarber has a unique opportunity right now. He can take a stand against the racist and soft-on-crime attitude of Stokes, and give individuals and businesses confidence that Jackson's other leaders aren't racist and won't provide a safe-haven for criminals who commit crimes, anywhere. With the right words, taking the right position, Mayor Yarber could actually provide enough confidence to stem or reverse the tide of the migration leaving Jackson. This may well be the biggest test of Yarber's tenure. Can he lead?

Maybe I missed a class at med school about all the medical conditions associated with sweating but in my professional opinion, Stokes is about to die of a heart attack. No one sweats as much that has a long life ahead. If you want to rid yourself of this moron just keeping hammering him with questions. Nature will take its course.

@9:15 You are very arrogant...I don't think you can stay within your city limits and say ....go to a movie or shop at a department store, and to insinuate the suburban areas do not have nice restaurants or nice stores, maybe you need to get out and investigate whats out there. On second thought, please stay away.

I have given this some thought. I now know why most of the elected officials and the people in Jackson are supporting Stokes.
Most of the businesses, most of the working people, and anyone with a little money have already left the city of Jackson. If the rest can be forced out by the elected officials they can have the city they want. A city where most of the people have the water meters replaced with a straight pipe, a city where most of the citizens do not pay any taxes, a city know worldwide for it's pot holes, a city where criminals are protected, and a city that does not want a single white person in the city limits.
Congratulations Jackson, you are well on the way to such a city.

At one time I lived in Jackson. |About the time I decided to move to a safer area one neighbor put up an 8' chain link fence around his lot and house. Cops would stop by every once in a while trying to force him to take it down. The fence is still up. Looks like his house is about the only one untouched by the crime in the neighborhood.
Even some of the churches have to have locked gates and armed guards to protect the member's cars. Sort of hard to understand how a city would get to the point that church members had to pay for protection of their cars when attending a service.

Anonymous said...

That's funny you mention churches and guards. Didn't a thug crash after fleeing from the PoPo from a church parking lot (JPD, Kennuf, so it's not racist right?)? Luckily, it wasnt' the Rankin County PoPo so it's OK under double standards. "Law enforcement sources said the two yewts drove into a church parking lot in South Jackson. A JPD officer working security asked them if they were going to church. They said they just wanted to use the bathroom. He told them they were not for use by the public and that they needed to leave. One of them fired several shots in the air as they left. The officer notified JPD. They were driving down the street in one direction while a JPD cruiser passed them but going in the opposite direction. The police officer made a u-turn as she saw they were speeding but they were completely out of sight when she turned around as they high-tailed it at a high rate of speed. They later crashed. The police officer at no time gave chase because she lost sight of the suspect. In other words, they probably thought there was a chase for them even if none took place.

What the police did not know at the time is that the "victims" are suspected of committing an armed robbery this morning before the church incident. "

Kingfish said...

JPD never chased them. They freaked out.

Considering one of them was shooting a gun in a church parking lot, oh well. Don't really feel too bad about what happened to one of them.

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.

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.
