Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba put M.A.C. owner Marcus Wallace in his place Tuesday night.  Mr. Wallace simultaneously be-clowned himself and made an ass out of himself during the public comments period.  Watch the video posted below.

Mr. Wallace wanted to talk about facts.  Well, the fact is BOTH investigations are incomplete.  The Mayor said that the city took responsibility for the actions of JPD and Public Works after citizens notified the city of the manhole problems on Ridgewood Road that morning.  Mayor Lumumba said at his press conference Monday that the failure of the manhole itself was still under investigation.   The John Knight incident is still under investigation as well. 

Mr. Wallace did respond to the Mayor on Facebook:

 Yesterday I presented some facts at the city council mtg that the Mayor felt the need to be combative on. Well, its obvious that someone realized that it wasn't such a good decision to do that because all the facts I stated can be proven because its mighty strange that the audio on the council mtg was cut off on our heated discussion. I have put a lot of time, energy and resources into the city of Jackson, the town of Edwards and Western Hinds County over the last 20 yrs. I have personally took time away from my children to help raise other children in this city so I take it very personal when someone trys to defame my character and minimize my business and as much as I care and the passion I have for children black and white and to accuse me of using the little white girl's tragic death to get a contract or make money was the lowest and unprofessional accusation to make on someone who proves day in and day out what he's about. How the hell I'm trying to make money off her death when I stated over 6-8 months ago that someone was going to get hurt. So one way or another the Lord is going to make sure the citizens in this city hear the audio on what took place last nite. Its obvious that you're listening to all the wrong people, you're combative on every issue, you're cocky, you have no concern of the people or the businesses in the inner city and you're running the city like a mom and pop store. People like but stats don't. All the council has to do is get the shovel and start digging and they will see for themselves what is going on. Citizens, stay tuned.... Its gametime!!! Let's play ball!

 since companies who are getting these millions of dollars of projects without contracts are the ones who feeding you all this info it's very obvious who you are listening to. To state publicly that I'm trying to capitalize off the young lady's death was actually very low my brother. Its obvious you haven't done your research cause the passion and love I have for the children in this city has not gone unnoticed. I have begged and begged for months to do something about these holes in the streets. I took my personal funds and bought equipment to help solve this problem and for this child to die and someone local had the equipment to work on this problem shows how unsavvy you are as a leader.

 You've talked to John Knight a few times but you havent said to much of nothing. All he know is that his son our son was beaten and there's no record or report an officer calling the license or tag in. That's fact!!! Stay tuned for Part 4...

Kingfish note: Why did Mr. Wallace feel the need to say "white" in "little white girl's tragic death" in his Facebook post? Does it have anything to do with anything?  

Mr. Wallace should post a picture of his certification on Facebook.

I say good on Chokwe for calling this clown out! I like how he claims that he is "very certified" another question is why does this clown use the word white girl to describe the girl who lost her life. Can you imagine if it were the other way around.

For a person that got paid tens of millions for doing nothing to complain about the 'contacting process' of the city is laughable. He just wants more of the corrupt practices of past administration's to feed his bank account.

Please excuse Mr. Wallace for his poor form and phony outrage. HIs pocket is hurting since this Mayor doesn't pass out contracts to the unqualified.

He should have saved his ill-gotten gains better.

It just goes to show how being mayor of Jackson is the most thankless, futile, political position a human being can aspire to. If there's one thing Antar is trying to do, it's getting black contractors involved. That's easier said than done since most talented minority contractors get the hell out of Jackson and Mississippi ASAP. But he gets the blame when Blacks don't get their "share" of the ever dwindling city coffers. Then he's expected to do the Democrat shuffle when all the money surrounding him is Republican. Good Luck!

The mismatch of audio and video on my end makes this look like a Godzilla movie!

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.
