"We Must Have a New System that Governs Us"

Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba gave a speech at Netroots Nation 2018 in New Orleans last week that freaked out Laura Ingraham.

I love his high school senior speech class tactic #9, "So, in conclusion..."

-Economics for the people and by the people- vs. -Economics for a few people and themselves-

These are critical questions to be pondering as people are not receiving water bills, schools and zoos are being poorly run, and potholes are not being paved. I guess once we commence Chancellor Lumumba's ascent to the throne, all of these minor details will fall into place.

He seems to misunderstand himself. Economics for the people should include all the people, but he seems to believe that those that are providing the economics for the city of Jackson don't deserve them, and that those on the other end should get all the benefits.

Kinda like his crime theory - that crime does pay. He lists all the parts of the criminal system that "make money" from the crime (lawyers, judges, jailers, etc.) but fails to recognize those that commit the crimes - that he evidently doesn't believe should 'pay' for their profits - that don't get counted in his economics theory, because they aren't paying taxes on their profitable side of crime. Except, maybe, for the car tag on their souped up vehicles with the gold rims bought with their criminal profits.

Jokeway can't address Jackson's real-time problems but he's got all the time under the sun to play yammering idealogue for audiences far removed from the dreadful conditions of an imploding Jackson.

I wonder if they check the state and well being of his community before hiring him to speak about community organizing? This is the new realm of the movement.

After looking and the netroots website, theur keynote speakers include, Peoli, Biden, Fauxcahontas(Lez'ebeth Warren), Obama, Harry Reid, Bernie, Van Jones, and a host of other liberal Progressives. Basically its a rally for the Soros/Progressive movement. Its so great little chucky can take time off from doing nothing here in Jackson to promote Progressiveness. Maybe someone should have thrown some truth into his statements about the problems here in Jackson. Instead these people want everyone else to pay for their benefits and wellbeing. Sounds kind of like that JPS bond issue....

Baby Choc's view of the world as expressed here is as screwy as his continued claim of importance with his statistically correct, but meaningless "93% victory margin".

A democrat running in a general election in a black city in MS against three, or four (who remembers, who cares) nobodies - candidates with no name ID, no money, and no campaigns. Hell, he ought to be ashamed that he lost 7% in that election considering the "opposition" he had on the ballot.

But, when that's all you have to be able to brag about, guess you have to take what's available. Otherwise, as he compares his city to New Orleans, Chicago, etc. he fails to note the comparison of the ever increasing murder rate; the increasing violent crime (that does pay, evidently); the crumbling infrastructure that the state is having to take over in order to keep the city afloat; the totally failed public education system - ooops, that the state should have taken over but passed - that is going from failure to total failure; ......

Well, enough. The road could go on forever, but the party in his "radical city" has ended.

In this video, he discusses a joint project with Oxfam and New Way MS for the Path Out of Poverty workforce development pilot program. Specifically, they are going to champion the training and hiring of "returning citizens" (a euphemism for ex-convicts) on the fiber project.

Lumumba refers to Jackson being a locus for the implementation of "the dignity economy". Apparently, the idea is that people are hired to make them feel good about themselves rather than because they are qualified.

(Will the last sane person to leave Jackson please turn out the lights...?)

Well, I guess he doesn't understand that money goes where it is treated best... he also speaks on incomes in this country. It would only be fair to ask why so many unskilled laborers come to this country to work rather than stay at home. If this country is so bad for lower income workers why do immigrants come. I came here when I was 18 years old. I came for college and never returned to South Africa. Problem chokwe has is that he lacks basic u understanding of the rest of the world. It's not apples to apples. The poor are by far better here than other places. Rafts leave Cuba for Miami for a reason.

IMHO his Father's idea to create a "black nation" is probably the best solution anyone can come up with. I know some black folks that I highly respect and think much of - but I don't want my kids anywhere near JPS. A logical solution is literally to let us all go our separate ways and be done with it. Also, I have much more respect for a man coming up with his own solutions rather than just blindly voting with the DNC year after year.

As this nation divides itself further and further over ideological differences, and white people become simply the largest minority, even that white mom who lives in Madison but votes DNC every year will begin to see the writing on the wall. It's cute to vote DNC when you live in Madison, but once your country is one big Jxn the pressure WILL build. This is eventually all going to degrade into either war or separatism.... I'm hoping for a peaceful separatism. That way, we can all run our own little experiments and decide once and for whose ideology is "superior".

Oh I can attest that the wealthy white ivy educated from the northeast and Seattle are smitten with him as they are fascinated by any black individual they encounter as they generally are rarely seen in those areas. It's true. Look up demographics of those areas. They are so smitten. Mainly because they carry a heavy heart and alot of guilt for something like the color of there skin.

I responded to her by imploring her to come to Jackson. I cited 80% African American population, overwhelming support for Hillary in 2016, 6 of 7 city council members are liberal Democrats, prominent HBCU in town, the mayor was elected promising the most radical city in America. Then I said, "or is the city too black for you and your progressive friends?"

Never got a response.

A lot of firsts have happened in the history of Jackson Mississippi. I can think of no more historically significant place for The Peoples' Revolution to happen than in the capital of the state that still flies the Confederate battle flag.

When it happens, it's going to make the Haitian Revolution look like a public employees barbecue. And due to decades of character assassination, everyone will watch it on TV and collectively sigh and say "They deserved it"

Most people who use “isms” have no clue what they truly mean. If you are going to accuse this guy or anyone of being a communist or Marxist please provide “actual” proof for your theory. Second our President has openly embraced Putin, an actual communist because (and here is the proof) for example Putin is president of a nation with a one party state that bans or punishes political dissent. They also oppose capitalism. Why is one alleged commie bad while the other is a nice guy? If you think this country isn’t at least partly socialist you’re not smart. Republicans have a the White House, a majority of governorships, and a majority of state legislatures. We still have Medicaid, social security, rising debt, and Trump just gave 12billion to farmers to help with their losses from the tariffs.

Is his statement overall any different that tea party republicans or republicans in general the past few years. I interpret "Drain the swamp" to mean the system in place is not representing the people. Get rid of Washington or professional politicians and put in place a system that represents all Americans and remove the system that benefits a few wealthy people to the detriment of the many.

You make a valid point, but you youeself know nothing. Capitalism and authoritarianism are not opposing views. Just take a look at post war South Korea or the Marcos dictatorship in the Philippines. Both were authoritarian dictatorships with capitalist, free-market economies.

Crony capitalism is still capitalism. What we have in the United States is more closely related to Corporatism. The Russian federation is a capitalist Plutocracy, nothing to do with communism or socialism what so ever.

Yes, Vladimir Putin was formally employed by the communist party, but so was almost every Russian his age.

Communism has never really existed outside of the idea, as it is always contrary to human nature. Even in the most authoritarian Communist governments, black market capitalism ALWAYS developed due to the constant failures of a "Command Economy" aka communism.

Anonymous said...

The radical change which the young mayor so passionately promotes has to have some allure especially for those people at the very bottom economically. New Orleans and Jackson have a growing population of such people and they think they have nothing to loose. The problem is, these people cannot finance anything, not their own lives or the day to day expenses of municipal government and education. They can only hope to control the spending of other peoples money. That can only happen if the "other people" are a captive audience that cannot move to greener pastures. In these United States the one thing the money can always do is MOVE. So all Chokwe can guarantee is self determination i.e. controlling your own starvation. The dream of prosperity is never mentioned, as individual wealth becomes a complete rarity, if not a crime, in his socialist ghost town.

Blacks are treated much better in this country than any other in all of reality if you look at Mexico… they deport every black person that sets foot on the land, look at Cuba Castro locked up or just machine gunned black families in front of there children. It would appear that when all angles are taken into account that this country is the land of opportunity. People come here because they can have a chance to be great and worse case scenario they won't be killed by there government due to tribal difference or there religion. Wake up America… This is the best of the best. I guess those that doubt it can try other places although its much more difficult to move to another country tan it is this one. Try to practice Islam in Japan or China its banned. I say send the socialist to any socialist country and see what freedoms you have and the safe space they provide. You will likely be dumpster diving or eating a can of dog food if its a good day. Look at it through those that are truly oppressed. Poor people here have Direct TV or play station iPhones cars etc… Lets get serious.

Well, first, you wrote "'isms'" but then, bemoaned accusations of "ists" - two different things. As to Putin being a communist, no, he isn't. In fact, Putin, along with most of those both doing the accusing and being accused would be in the first bunch "dispensed with" by a truly communist state. What Putin and rest have in common is a selfish desire for putting their own interests first regardless of the consequences, which is the antithesis of "communism." As to your "proof," most of the Middle East fits your definition and they are about as far from "communism" as a state can get. Anyway, as to the Mayor, he is neither a communist nor a Marxist (or a socialist), he is just another person who simply wants what he wants, damned the consequences. I'll even accept as true the claim that his heart is often in the right place. The problem is, however, that his mind rarely goes along for the ride.

As to 11:18 am and the Haitian revolution, how has that worked out? Haiti has been under black control for almost 250 years and you can literally see the border on satellite photos. For those that think Jackson is bad, spend some time in Haiti. As most soon find out, being a radical revolutionary is a hell of lot easier than a radical revolution.

The separatist crap is a large part of why Jackson is the mess that it is and until both blacks and whites accept their respective responsibilities for it all and worry more about the future of all than the past of some, things will not get better. So, Mr. Mayor, quit worrying about being "Chokwe Lumumba" and start worrying about being "the mayor for all of Jackson." Besides, do you really want a Soviet indoctrination center disguised as a university named after you (although, admittedly and sadly, it would likely graduate more students than the current JPS)? Again, look how well that all worked out.

12:17 made some good points, including, "Communism has never really existed outside of the idea, as it is always contrary to human nature. Even in the most authoritarian Communist governments, black market capitalism ALWAYS developed due to the constant failures of a 'Command Economy' aka communism."

To take it a step further, life is in large part transactional. For example, even the lowest life forms must trade X amount of effort for X-plus sustenance and if they fail to do so, they die off. In human terms, one cannot burn X calories a day while consuming less than X calories and survive (fat Mississippian jokes soon to follow...). "Communism," "socialism" and other re-distributive systems cannot work because it is mathematically impossible for every member of a system to forevermore obtain X-plus with none winding up with X-minus (it is more "finite common pool" than "zero sum"). Add "human nature" to the equation and it rapidly accelerates the collapse of the entire system, ala the Soviet collapse. See also the Chinese "controlled restructuring." Discussions about whether the strong should help the weak, and due to desire, obligation, mandate or some combination, and if so how much, are separate topics.

The answer to the problems facing Jackson is not socialism. The answer can be no less than FULL COMMUNISM!

The oppressed people's of Jackson must take a stand against the bourgeois in Rankin County who have stolen their surplus values. The only reason those hillbillies in Flowood have anything going is pure theft.

Mayor Lamumba must lead the charge in taking what rightfully belongs to the people of Jackson.

Rankin and Madison Counties belong to the citizens of Jackson.

CNN and Wall street journal reported yesterday that Trump manages to gain hispanic and black voters at an alarming rate. Mainly males under age of 40. These are normally a safe bet for the democrats however, they're claiming now that its not so much with Trump. Nearly 50% of trump voters voted for Obama. Look at the map its easy to see. Blacks are voting trump but not other republican candidates. Actually I guess i first saw this on Sunday morning when Chuck Todd addressed it.

What is it about giving people a chance to RECUSE THEMSELVES, some of you don't understand?

That is not communism, being " radical" for change mentioned Jesus as an example.

And, please, do at least look up the definitions of different forms of government and try to understand that a system of government is not an economic system.

Dictatorships can be capitalistic if the dictator is benign.

And, if you think locking up drug addicts and alcoholics is a cheaper and more effective alternative to effective treatment, you are nuts.

Wealth in the hands of the top 2% is NOT compatible with capitalism.

Is it that y'all are opposed to equal unbiased equal opportunity?

Laura Ingraham makes a living at finding molehills to make into mountains on being indignant and outraged so she can laugh all the way to the bank. With her Ivy League education and law firm experience, she knows much of what she is saying is total BS. She just figured out she'd make more in politics than in the law and she's was right.

Your ideas are purely academic and unproven to be successful and also have led to the death of millions worldwide. Your not well educated on this issue as it has failed in every nation it has been tried in. Ask yourself why is it that people are dumpster diving in Venezuela to feed there family. Or why do people risk there lives fleeing Cuba for Florida... it's because the risk is well worth the reward. You must deal in real terms not some utopia.

Mr. Mayor, you have been given the key to your success by 1:47pm, right here on JJ:

"If he wants to be a great mayor he’ll have to fix the streets and water/sewer problems."

There's your answer in one sentence. Pick one thing, fix it and fix it properly, on-time and on-budget, and then, fix another. With each thing fixed, not only will Jackson get better, you'll get better.

Here's a suggestion: Find 10 citizens, 5 black and 5 white, who are not "business leaders," "up and comers," "church leaders," "consultants," or any other horseshit because people who see themselves as important will just tell you what they want. If Mike Bloomberg has all the answers, why doesn't he get his rich white ass to Jackson and set about helping you fix things instead of flying you to Harvard for a long weekend and telling you what's what? You will gain a whole lot more from plain, normal folks who are your constituents telling you the unvarnished truth if you are truly prepared to listen, learn, and act. Or if you want to be some darling-de-jour, fine, go that route. And if so, fuck you, you hypocrite.

This Mayor is so full of it. 93% voted for me! Sounds great until you realize that the only Mayoral election that matters in Jackson is the primary. There are hardly any Republicans in this city anyway and when they vote for Mayor, they vote in the Democratic Primary because they know that's when the winner is decided. In 2017, Lumumba only got 55% of the primary vote. In the general, where he ran against 1 Republican, 3 Independents and one Libertarian, all the Democrats who decided to come out an vote voted for the Democrat which of course was Lumumba. He got 23,242 votes out of 25,007 which is 93%. Big deal, the real vote was 55%, which is far from a mandate.

Generally the Fondren belhaven eastover Meadowbrook highland families have 2 or 3 kids in private school to pat yearly. So most of these families make 500k at minimum. Usually 1 income households as well. The wife is playing tennis at River Hills or yoga someplace. You know the types you see at highland village. This is the reality of it.

The truth lies between. Plenty of 500k families at JA. Plenty of "struggling" 200-250k, too. Many live in older homes that are 200-300k. I bet a substantial portion of the higher end flee for Madison, over the next 2-3 years. A few of the ones who are priced out of most inventory in Madison might bite the bullet and go to Brandon, where a decent home in a good neighborhood can be had for under 300, There's no way that I'd be subsidizing this radical, progressive, racially motivated mayor's agenda. Read his father's writings, then you'll get the constant mentioning of black cities. Gary, Indiana...wink, wink. It's all whitey's fault and he should shut up, smile and give up all his money to fix it. No thanks. I didn't know how much I loved Mayor Mary, until now.

If you have 2 kids and live in Jackson you will never make it financially. Private schools will eat you alive. You people in the burbs don't understand that this is the reason no middle class lives in Jackson. If I couldn't afford 3 private school tuitions and a comfortable lifestyle I would certainly live outside of the city as I find those schools to be very strong. I deal with those kids daily for ortho. I also drive to Madison as do most or at least many physicians in my group due to new facility near Madison exit.

The "demographic change" that Laura Ingraham expressed is really a demographic of economic system of belief.....and it's out: Socialism? or Capitalism? Let's get ready to rummmmmmmmmble!

Socialism = "Government" financial assistance from the cradle to the grave. No accountability, the more people dependent on assistance, the more power in government needed, and more opportunity for corruption.

Capitalism = Healthy/rational family planning that prepares children to complete their education, live within a budget, maintain gainful employment, strive to reach full potential as a self-sufficient, law-abiding citizen that contributes to their community as such.

Hmmmmm.....if the media gets its way, we're doomed. They need chaos
If sane and moral voters get their way, we'll reclaim an idea called America.

It's not about race. It's about self-determinism...which begins in the home with consistent healthy parenting. Otherwise, individuals unconsciously hate those parents for bringing them into the world and throwing them under the train by not teaching them what they need to know to be an INDEPENDENT, autonomous, productive citizen and human being.

Listen, clearly just my opinion here... let's try to have a United front & let people live where they choose without harassment and insulting there choices. I have friends in Jackson and Madison as well. Let's focus on improving our state and communities. Obviously those of us on here didn't vote for this crap. Let it be. There is already division no need to add more.

Don Lemon ripped Laura Ingraham for thinking as a "white nationalist" for not mentioning Europeans overstaying their Visas. The only problem is that in the monologue that Lemon made referance to Ingrahan discussed the issue of Europeans overstaying their Visas in great detail and she protested the lack on enforcement on this point.

So...is Don Lemon as liar, is he incompetent, or both?

An observation:

It really ain't "socialism," "equality," and all that jazz when you're spending your days speaking from the lectern at the Riverside Hilton (with coffee, tea and light snack service), your nights eating at Emeril's, and then retiring to your riverview suite at that same Hilton (assuming the mayor stayed there, and if not, where?). If I were a earnest young reporter and had a blog, I might want to learn such things to see if the mayor's walk aligns with his talk, but I am not and and I do not.

As to those blathering on about communists, there really are no truly communist countries in the world, because just like Cuba and the Soviets/Russians, Korea and the Chinese, etc., you really aren't a communist, socialist, anti-fascist, etc., if your parents are paying all the bills - you're just mommy's special little leach.

Don lemon is both... a liar as well as incompetent. It's hard to take him serious. His show is an opinion show therefore he is not a journalist. Same with Hannity he even says this. It's opinion not news. Therefore not journalism.

1:45, you just said the scariest thing I’ve heard said and it has the ring of truth. True incompetence would be even more destructive.

"...a system that governs us?" Doesn't that come directly from a Fidel Castro speech circa 1988?

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
