New Radical Mayor of Jackson, MS: Dedicated To Transforming South Into Indy Socialist Black Nation
Gateway Pundit ^ | September 29, 2013 | Andrea Ryan

Posted on 09/29/2013 11:23:17 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Well, this is not just a bit scary. Raising his fist in a black power salute during his swearing in, the newly elected mayor of Jackson, Mississippi was true to his character as a former leader of the black supremacy group, Republic of New Afrika. The group is dedicated to transforming five of the Southern states into an independent socialist black nation. Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, born in Detroit as Edwin Finley Taliaferro, is a radical activist, and co-founder of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. He’s, also, being praised by the Nation of Islam, who wrote in their publication, Final Call, that ‘the seeds of a black nation are already taking root in Mississippi.’

According to WND,

Voters in Jackson, Miss., a mid-sized city in the heart of the Deep South, have picked a Democrat as their mayor. What’s different about this individual is that he is a former leader of the Republic of New Afrika, a group dedicated to creating an independent black nation out of five southern states.

Now leading the city of about 175,000 is Chokwe Lumumba – who has a long history of radical activism and whose plans for the largest city in Mississippi could be called “revolutionary.”

A co-founder of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, which promotes black “self-determination,” Lumumba was sworn in on July 1, after winning 86 percent of the vote in the general election.

He had won the Democrat nomination with 54 percent of the vote.

Despite what could be considered an overpowering victory, Jackson’s business owners are extremely concerned with Lumumba’s proposals for the city.

One of Lumumba’s primary goals as mayor of Jackson is to create a “solidarity economy” in the city. According to a report published by the Belfast Telegraph, a solidarity economy is an “umbrella term used to describe a wide variety of alternative economic activities, including worker-owned co-operatives, co-operative banks, peer lending, community land trusts, participatory budgeting and fair trade.”

Lumumba also has earned the highest praise from the Final Call, the official publication of the Nation of Islam, which called his electoral victory one of the “most important progressive political victories on a long list of important political leaders.”

Further in the article, Final Call noted that: “the seeds of a ‘Black Nation’ have already taken root in the state where Mr. Lumumba is mayor of the capital city.”

Lumumba discussed this idea of a “Black Nation” forming in Mississippi with Final Call and what can be done to bring it to life.

“Some of (the counties) are as much as 80 percent black. So, demographically we have a solid, a non-self-governing territory. What we need to do in that area – and actually what our people have begun to do, Mississippi has more black elected officials than any state in the United States – and if we can now give that some political content, some direction in terms of what we want to do in terms of taking these electoral victories, these economic victories and teach the message that we know from long ago, of self-determination, of self-governance, self-economic development,” Lumumba stated.

In addition, he calls this area of Mississippi the “Kush District,” and he raised his fist in a black power salute at the ceremony where he was sworn in as mayor.

The Jackson-Kush District … then and now, according to Chokwe Lumumba. by Donna Ladd Image from Jackson Free Press.

Since 40% of Mississippi is Black, this dream might come true a lot faster than people realize.

He doesn’t want Arkansas and Tennessee? What’s wrong with this guy?

It really doesn’t matter, though. Within a year he’ll be in prison for taking bribes.

This is what happens when blacks take over. In the early 70s I knew white people who were starting to move from the Delta up to NW Arkansas. They saw what was coming. And they were right. The Delta is a place I never want to see again.

White voters have very high turnout.

Also, they vote more than 80% Republican, which is, or used to be, the highest state percentage in the country.

Read post #6, where it says 40% of Mississippi is black. Close to 100% of blacks voting Dem, plus 20% of whites, equals Dem victory.

No doubt he'll fall off his own weight; real question is how much of the city he'll bring down with him. Guy like this can do a lot of damage.
Used to be people would say this kind of thing will wake up America to the danger; now it's pretty much understood nothing will really have a long-lasting effect on the general public. Their attention may be temporarily piqued by a 911 or something like it but they'll eventually get back to the serious business of keeping up with the latest doings of Miley or some other freak.

Mayor Lumumba’s namesake, Patrice Lumumba, was the first elected prime minister of The Congo.

Patrice was a Pan-African idealist and an anti-colonialist (against Belgium in his country).

Most early African leaders were openly Marxist, but Patrice never publicly declared himself on that issue.

After a few months in office, the pro-Belgium Congo military revolted against Patrice Lumumba.

Patrice appealed for help to the USSR, but aid did not arrive in time.

Patrice was overthrown, imprisoned, beaten and tortured (allegedly by the CIA and Belgium secret service), and quickly executed in 1961.

Exactly! I used to have faith that people would react as we reached a tipping point and prevent this country from destroying itself. I don’t have that faith anymore. Nothing seems to stir the people up to take action.

Oh sure, we march; we complain to our “representatives”; we write letters, articles and such, etc. But does it do any good? NO, a thousand times NO. What will it take for people to realize they will soon be under a dictatorship (if not already)?

Oh well, back to American Idol (or whatever garbage Acirema is watching).

So it begins!

If you took some road-kill and painted it black, blacks would vote for it.

Too many have been on the Democrat plantation to even suspect what they are doing, nor do they care.

Don’t worry about coming to South Carolina, you’ll like it here. Every Southern state is different with its own culture. Here in the Palmetto State we rednecks are armed to the teeth, CCW is freely available (for a fee), and race relations are generally good.

We’re not dominated by one large liberal city (Atlanta) or by several liberal cities (North Carolina). Regional influence (Piedmont, Midlands, Lowcountry) is mostly equalized, and our conservative politics are the lament of what the few liberals who live here.

As for Lindsey Graham, he’ll be gone soon (thank goodness).

Percentage of Black Population:

AL 26.2

MS 37.0

LA 32.0

GA 30.5

SC 27.9

Looking at the numbers, you can see why this guy decided to start in MS. I doubt he'll get much traction elsewhere. If you're wondering why FL was left out of this scheme, their percentage is 16.0.

Conspiracy guy,

I agree that this guy in Jackson won’t get very far with secessionist policies.

There’s a big govt contractor facility in the city that won’t take too kindly to any radical shenanigans.

The NOI is a pretty strange organization. They complain about abortion and homosexuality, yet they support "progressive" candidates and the "Black left."

Guess all the Black churches in Mississippi have gone to the higher criticism.

Is this what the Left has in mind when they keep repeating the mantra "Diversity is Strength"?

As always, the more the Left talks about "Diversity", the more militantly driven to homogeneity the "diverse" elements of society become.
