Chokwe, Jr. "co-authored" his "father's platform".

Chokwe Antar Lumumba, Jr.  announced he is a candidate at a press conference this evening in front of City Hall and a crowd of enthusiastic supporters.  Mr. Lumumba's sister and wife introduced him to the crowd.  Ridgeland resident Safiya Omari opened the press conference by leading the crowd in a chant of "One City,  One destiny". 

Mr. Lumumba's address begins at 12:27.  The speech lasts roughly five minutes.

Spending the gold.

"By Whatever Means"

What has this young man accomplished in life? He is an articulate attorney but does that make one qualified to be the Mayor of Jackson? Just because he says that he coauthored his late father's platform, does that make him qualified to lead Jackson? I think the young man and his family should take the time to grieve the loss of their father and allow someone with experience to lead Jackson. His time will come after he has worked in the trenches.

Did not even know he was a lawyer. His office address is exactly the same as "Quinn Insurance and Investments." Not sure how much of a legal practice he has.

The preacher couldnt even say his name without stumbling... Then the lady after the preacher couldnt say Mississippi... If he doesnt want a political ambitions then why run for mayor... So if he is continuing his daddy's vision then how is it a "new" day... But I agree with other posts, WHAT has HE done??

He is Jackson's next mayor, it is destiny.

YO! @10:36 AM..You wouldn't know "destiny" if it bit you on the ass! The only destiny we need is to give this city a HUGE enema and flush these wanna-be urban terrorist that have infiltrated OUR city back into the sewer!

Plain and simple as the nose spread across your face. He is channeling Barack Hussein Obama seven years ago. A nobody with no experience who was clean and articulate (according to Biden) and who commanded the attention of the plebes as he took the stage. Nobody ever even noticed the tube of KY in his shirt pocket.

Was he born after his father legally changed his name, or was he Edwin Jr. and just took the name when daddy did? In a race where name recognition means a lot, his opponents might enjoy a boost in their numbers if his name isn't legally what he says it is. I'd want to see a birth certificate or a court order.

Bill: Where the shit you been, son? It's totally racist to imply that a negroe's birth certificate might be in question.

You might also recall that Casius Clay, aka Muhammed Ali, had a daughter before he became Ali and HER name is now Ali too.

um, KINGFISH....look, keep up the good work. Without your effort most of these egregious acts by these Detroit thugs would go unnoticed. I can tell there is an organized effort by these bottom feeders to infiltrate your efforts simply to skew the message or outcome of the issue at hand. Make no mistake, exposing them is like turning a rock over in the daylight and seeing many cockroaches scrambling for cover. Not to mention, they are a vengeful lot and the power they think that they have acquired will be all the catalyst needed to discredit you and those of us that simple want the truth unfiltered and documented. thanks again.

Got a call earlier asking me to call "Councilwoman Simon and ask her not to make a deal with the backroom power brokers"

I guess Antar shoved off his grief long enough to pose for campaign photos and artwork for posters before the funeral. Wonder why he didn't wear the funeral dress in his campaign photo?

He bought a house on Pear Orchard so he is profitable and credit worthy. Today he became a father so he is fertile. He attended First Baptist Church last Sunday so attends the public reading of the Holy Scriptures. He will be receiving some weighty endorsements including the newspaper of record of the state. So I urge everyone to stick with the administrative team in place.

I suppose then he should also accept partial credit for co-authoring his late father's deception in hiding the truth about his failing health to the voters.

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. 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.
