Chokwe Lumumba, Ex-Black Nationalist, Wins Jackson, Miss. Mayor’s Race

The Grio, June 5, 2013

A Mississippi attorney and one-time civil rights activist who was involved in a black nationalist group decades ago has been elected mayor of Jackson, the state capital.

The Clarion-Ledger reported late Tuesday that Jackson City Councilman Chokwe Lumumba (SHOW-kway Lu-MOOM-bah) was elected mayor, receiving about 85 percent of the vote against three independent candidates.

{snip}

Lumumba ran as a mainstream candidate who would represent all city voters. {snip}

He wrote on Facebook Tuesday night, “Thank you, Jackson. None of this would be possible without faith and your support.”

He went on to say, “This is the people’s victory. Together we will make Jackson rise!”

    Lumumba ran as a mainstream candidate who would represent all city voters.

    Are there any non-black voters in Jackson, Mississippi anymore?

    • Dave4088

      No. Jackson may as well be Zimbabwe, Mississippi.

      • Jefferson

        Jackson is even Blacker than Atlanta.

        • Romulus

          However, Atlanta is now run by the ex Yankee”tribe” the semitic poverty law center.

        • Adam

          Actually, Atlanta is becoming whiter all the time. Same with Washington D.C. In fact, D.C. is 50% White.

      Does it matter? Look at the POTUS….Besides, Blacks will vote for ANYONE that looks Black….they’re the most racist, ignorant voters around–along with the wigger liberals that are making a mess of this country.

      • Abibi Fawohodie

        I have no idea how these yellow skins keep getting office myself as a black man, its worse than Jamaica.

  • Hunter Morrow

    Can you believe that this nation went from White citizens and landholders only being allowed to vote and hold office to “Lumumbas” in under 250 years?

    From a guy named George to Barack Hussein Obama.

  • Richard

    Chokwe physically looks like one of those light-skinned blacks who is so worried about being accepted by his fellow blacks that he overcompensates with the pro-black, anti-white rhetoric.

    • The__Bobster

      Yes, the Redbones are the worst kind of Zulu.

    • HamletsGhost

      I’ve noticed that as well. The more “African” the name, the more likely the holder of it is some high-steppin’ yeller.

        Hehe

  • Potestas Tenebrarum

    As the blacks would say, “Light… Bright… DAMN near White…”!

    • Nathanwartooth

      Yeah I’m about to get a dark tan and run as a Black democrat to get elected. I would be darker than this guy, that’s for sure.

            wow
            what’s wrong with this picture?

          • brengunn

            How can that guy even call himself a black guy while keeping a straight face? I can’t see that he has retained any features from his African ancestry, straight hair and nose, I can’t see for sure but maybe light eye colour, he basically looks Italian or maybe Spanish. And the guy from the article looks like an Arab.

          • Romulus

            He’s standing in direct sunlight. The tight knappy hair is the give away.

          • Jefferson

            That guy is suppose to be “Black” ? What the hell, he looks like a more overweight version of Vince Vaughn.

            I guess the one drop rule is still alive and well in 2013.

          • Romulus

            His surname is appropriate, don’t you think?

          • Erasmus

            He’s queer, too, I think.

            Blacks know better than anyone not to put a blackman who’s less than 80% white in charge of anything.

  • Jackson–The next Detroit, then State takeover- I mean taxpayer takeover.

  • ed

    so I’m guessing the community is at least 85% black.
    I didn’t want to waste my time reading the article.

    His birth name is probably Leroy Johnson or Willie Jones.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with those names.

    • Neuday

      He was born Edwin Finley Taliaferro, which he refers to as his “slave name”, according to Wikipedia, and was born in Detroit. Edwin Taliaferro sounds like a human name, so I can understand his discomfort.

    The Mississippi state troopers advise that you not leave the Interstate when traveling through Jackson. Too much crime. Top off your tank elsewhere and drive like a bat out of hell through the wretched place.

  • HJ11

    This guy is for racial separation. I agree with that position.

    However, it would be nice if he would take himself and his fellow Blacks back to Africa to practice their separation, and we Whites can practice our racial separation here.

    • HamletsGhost

      The problem with black separationists is that they never extend that separation to their hands and our wallets.

    • itdoesnotmatter

      I’m all for racial separation too. Just so my white tax dollars don’t finance the “separate” community.

      • Kalel Jorelson

        Interesting question for you: what if Blacks agreed to total restoration of segregation, no intermarriage, no mixed schools or mixed dating, BUT they would remain beneficiaries of welfare, medicare, medicaid, and every other species of “relief” that could be imagined. This is a test and question of values: what is more important to you? Tax Relief or Cultural and Ethnically homogeneous communities?

        I have thought of an alternative, also: restoration of absolute segregation as the ONLY “White” Law that Blacks have to comply with—-and other than that they govern themselves. No more blacks in white jails. I think we are at the point where we have to offer them something material to restore segregation: either we pay them off in welfare or we “set them free” from all our laws so long as they stay separate.

        So one alternative is a continuously integrated economy, segregated culturally and residentially. Another alternative is an absolutely segregated world, but we give up trying to tell anyone except ourselves what’s right and wrong. No Welfare = No Jails = Absolute freedom EXCEPT to cross those racial boundaries. I like to think of pragmatic ways we might be able to turn things around. We have to offer them something to be able to bargain—-because right now they have all the cards… and it’s our fellow Caucasians (and quasi-Caucasians of the non-Christian varieties) who gave them the cards and taught them to play….

        • itdoesnotmatter

          @Kalel Jorelson: “We have to offer them something to be able to bargain—”

          I might have this wrong, your ideas are multifaceted and complex.
          I think you are suggesting an interdependent financial relationship with blacks, stipulating that they stay physically separate.
          I don’t think blacks would buy into this peacefully, even with payouts and a white ideological/political hands-off policy.
          The black masses may hate us, but they cannot seem to separate themselves from all things white. Psychologically and physically, they are addicted to the amenities we create and sustain.
          We see this played out over and over. Whites flee urban criminal dysfunction, create a safe, functional, high property value community miles away. Though still living in town because exurban property is cost prohibitive, blacks commute to what they crave: our safe, white malls, coffee shops, restaurants, retail businesses. In no time our shops and main streets are not safe…again. [Especially targeted: exurban malls.]
          As blacks do not follow the laws of man and will cross boundaries, would you erect physical barriers, post armed sentries to maintain lawful separation?
          Would white tax payers be taxed to bail out trashed communities, rebuild businesses and structures that we left intact, but blacks fail to independently rebuild and maintain? Or would their world [without our help beyond handouts to individuals] devolve into a dystopian “Escape From New York” Haiti scenario in spite of welfare, payouts, etc?”
          Reminds me of a Joyce Carol Oates short story.

          • Kalel Jorelson

            If we are not willing to try to bargain first, if our position is so weak that we cannot even make an offer, what possible chance do we have?

            If a minority of “separation-minded” whites could start talking to a minority of “separation-minded” or even “separation-tolerant” blacks, would that not be better than what we’ve got, which is a very small number of “separation nostalgic” whites pitifully whining to each other about how this country is not theirs anymore?

            We all know that this used to be a White Anglo-Saxon Protestant country, with lots of tolerance for religious and philosophical diversity—of course that tolerance for philosophical diversity is what gave the Communists their toe-hold which has now become a death grip.

            “Separation Aspiring” whites are now spit on, as the Salon.com article yesterday on Matthew Heimbach (“White Pride in my Classroom”) showed. They treated him (not just one of us, but one of us whom many admire as a future leader) as if he were a still living “Neanderthal”—a great curiosity, a monstrous and frightening being on the one hand, and yet “strangely human and likeable” on the other.

            Decent, non-violent, politically-minded White Supremacists now find themselves in much the same position as cinematic characters such King Kong, the Dragon in Dragonheart, or some of Ann Rice’s Vampires—-monsters, hunted by all, and doomed to extinction, and yet oddly endowed with souls making others regret their passing.

            To say that we will not even attempt to negotiate re-segregation is to say that we will do absolutely positively nothing and that we will just let “nature take its course” and wipe us out with the Dodo. We will do nothing because if we can’t even talk about negotiating, we certainly can’t talk (except in dreamtime) about taking our country back by force.

            I would say that in all modern war and politics, credible negotiation always has to come first. There would never have been a War in 1861 if there had not first been an Abolitionist movement directed by centralized-government organized Marxists of the first generation.

            If we sit back and do nothing, we whites will perish from the face of the earth. Blue and Hazel eyes will become museum curiosities. If (even as a pathetic minority) we start trying to BUY or safety first, then perhaps, PERHAPS, we will gain enough standing and credibility to have some political power.

            But people who cannot talk about peace first are certainly in absolutely no position to talk about war later. So for all of you who are dreaming that a Klansman will arise out of the Mountains in the West and sweep us back into a “separate and safe world”, I say—the Easter Bunny is a much safer bet—go back and hope for Santa Claus.

            IF we are ever to take our country back, we need to start advocating that “separate but equal” was a BETTER PLAN FOR ALL, and we need to start showing how we would make it happen, how we would make it FAIR FOR ALL. Equity is the first step of strength. Rational self-interest on the part of all players is the way to arrange a good dance. Now politics is a very ugly dance in the best of worlds, and this is not the best of worlds.

            So yes, we need multifaceted ideas that might actually attract some light and reflect some brightness back on others.

            We whites, as of 2013, are effectively DEAD, EXTINCT, and FINISHED, unless we start thinking like businessmen who want to break into a market controlled by the mob. How do we advertise? What do we offer? WE ARE THE OUTSIDERS LOOKING IN! What do WE have to offer to gain insider status or at least TALK to the insiders.

            That’s the first step, but all I see here at AmRen is a bunch of unhappy people who don’t like the idea that one day we might have to look back on Barack Hussein Obama as not so much the “first black President” as the last “President who at least acted like a civilized white person for the part.”

            If we don’t start organizing a real plan, there’s are some Robert Mugabes and Idi Amins in our future who’ll make us long for the days we are living in today—when we still had, dare I say it, a “Chinaman’s Chance” of survival and recovery……

          • HamletsGhost

            You can’t negotiate if you have no power, and if you do have all the power, you don’t need to negotiate. Negotiation only works when there is a rough parity of power between parties.

            Blacks will never let whites get away, since even they realize all too well that they can’t survive without us. All black political posturing today is basically a street mugging writ large.

            The solution is for pro-whites to get political power, and then use it to ship Negroes back to their homeland in Africa. We need not worry about their feelings any more than we worry about the termites when we fumigate the house.

          • Kalel Jorelson

            Well, people like Matthew Heimbach are doing something to improve our standing and our prospects and hence our power. There are at least…. very few other people out there doing that. Do you have a practical proposal to make things better? Or are you just going to sit around and bemoan the fact that we have no power.

            It’s a corny and highly overused analogy, I know, but was there any “rough parity” of parties between the 13 Colonies and Great Britain in 1775? No, of course there wasn’t, and left alone the Declaration of Independence would probably be best remembered as the arrest list for the American traitors who were first to be hanged.

            But the Americans went out and developed a strategy, they used innovative theories of credit (paper money backed by absolutely nothing but promises, holder-in-due-course doctrine be damned). With no small degree of irony, the American Revolutionaries turned to the French Monarchy (who were significantly more oppressive than the English Monarchy) and sought support there.

            My point is, we need to be creative, we need to be using this website and others to develop better plans than, “let’s all cry about the good old days” and “oooo those blacks and Hispanics are such selfish bad guys, they want our money AND our girls.” We need to develop practical strategies and I’m making proposals but not seeing anybody coming back with anything. We, the American White people, need to get our heads out of our posterior parts and our posterior parts out of our chairs and get into action—

            The group of people who want to create a small all-white nation in the Pacific Northwest have about as much practical sense as the people who assembled on December 21 of last year waiting for the sky to fall because the Maya 13th Baktun was ending….

          • HamletsGhost

            You’re making my point for me. After Yorktown, there was a parity of power between the colonists and the crown. Negotiations could then proceed seriously, as Britain realized that crushing the colonies was not possible.

            What do you expect blacks to negotiate with? They have no power themselves, only what is handed to them by people smarter, richer and more organized than they could ever hope to be, and foolishly ceded to them by gullible whites who’ve been thoroughly brainwashed by the same gang of crooks.

            Anyway, this talk is far too premature. The first step is to regain power for whites to control their destiny. With that done, we can do to our former slave population what Lincoln and Jefferson wanted to do but didn’t get the chance to do.

            Don’t count chickens til they’ve hatched.

        • MBlanc46

          Many blacks are incapable of functioning in modern technological society due to low IQ, deficient long-term thinking, and low impulse control. There’s no way that they can do without support of whites. If we could bargain voluntary segregation for then support we’ll have to given them anyway, it would be a good deal. I would, however, throw in a work requirement, even if the work isn’t efficient or profitable.

          • Kalel Jorelson

            Well, to restore segregation we’d clearly have to offer them more than they’re getting now—NOT ONLY to get Black cooperation but to get MODERATE WHITE Cooperation as well. I feel that if we make our offer generous enough, we could even form a coalition with the Liberals and Blacks who demand reparations for slavery and colonialism—and since these are the people who disagree with us (theoretically) the most, getting them on our side would be the greatest guarantee of success. Creatively successful politics always involves making strange alliances and stranger compromises.

          • MBlanc46

            I think more than bargaining will be required to restore voluntary segregation. Some coercion will be required. You’re quite right that white agreement to bargaining and coercion will be required. My guess as to where that agreement will come from is the increasing quantity and quality of black violence–the knock-out game, “Beat Whitey” days at state fairs, flash mobs, and atrocities such as the one in Brunswick, GA. Even the mainstream media are having a more difficult time suppressing reports of such events.

        • me

          It won’t work. The nature of the Black man will never allow it to work. I would be willing to buy them all an expensive, one-way ticket back to their ‘motherland’, along with a financial reward. It would be the only thing that will work, and the only thing that would be cost-effective in the long term.

          • Kalel Jorelson

            Where would the money come from to repatriate XV Millions of blacks and XXXV Millions of Mestizos & Mulatos from Mexico and points further down the meridians? I think my proposal is cheaper, in the short run—and if it fails, at least the populations would be sufficiently segregated that the restoration of African populations to African and Meridional Populations down the Meridian would be easier to achieve.

            I have also proposed segregation on a much grander scale within the US—-offer the blacks, in particular, ONE STATE of their own, or even one and a half, “to have and to hold” as their own as reparations for slavery—I would suggest giving them the state of Florida—a nice chunk of high value real estate, they cannot complain, and they sink or swim with it. It might be that they could do as well as Jamaica and the Bahamas managing tourist venues. Florida’s climate is closest to that of tropical Africa—they can’t say that we’re “cheating” them or ignoring “the horrors of slavery.” All white lands in Florida would be expropriated and given to blacks, and all (well any) black owned property outside of Florida would be given to the expropriated whites.

            On an even grander scale—the grandest of all, let’s make up for Colonialism and Slavery all at once, pay reparations by delivering the Kimberly Diamond Mines and the Witwaterstrand Gold and all the rest of South Africa to the American Blacks in exchange for the South African Whites coming here. Would the London-Based Anglo-American Company go along with it? Only if we force them to do so, of course. But we whites had better get better at developing political alliances and strategies than we currently are, or else nothing we say will amount to more than a 20 lb bag of sand in the Sahara.

          • HamletsGhost

            Stop being so naive. Blacks already had their state. It’s called Haiti, a land blessed with mild climate, fertile soil and verdant forests. Today, as everyone knows or ought to know, it’s a fetid hell-hole, all trees cut down, soil washed away, and permanently a ward of the world’s white taxpayers via the UN.

            If blacks were given Florida, how long do you expect them to ruin that paradise?

            We don’t need to prove our bona fides to the blacks. They wouldn’t listen anyway.

            In 1990, we airlifted an army of 500,000 soldiers and their equipment to the middle of the Saudi desert, kept it supplied for 6 months to allow it to fight a victorious campaign, and brought them back again. Do you seriously believe a campaign to deport 40 million low-IQ blacks to their homelands is not feasible or affordable?

          • Kalel Jorelson

            I know it’s not politically feasible right now…. and so do you. I am not so much trying to suggest that I believe we have ” to prove our bona fides” to anybody—I’m suggesting that offering something like that might give US and our cause credibility—give up something of value to get something of value.

            My whole point is that too many of us here on AmRen seem to think that if all us white folks just cry and whine about the situation long enough, the clock will turn itself back. Well, I don’t think that’s going to happen. I would like to see people thinking about political feasibility, what it would take to make other people agree with us, than just stating starkly that modern technology can move a lot of people around if you throw enough money at totally profitless projects…..

            Anyhow, I’d rather RISK turning Florida into another Haiti than risk doing absolutely nothing. Haiti, by the way, is just the bottom of the barrel for reasons not necessarily related to race alone. The Bahamas, Jamaica, and most of the Caribbean is mostly black except for tiny pockets of white people here and there, but Jamaica and the Bahamas are both quasi-functional, as indeed are the Dominican Republic, Virgin Islands, Martinique, etc. which all have fared better than Haiti.

            Florida, as I envision it here, would be most like the Dominican Republic or Trinidad and Tobago where persons of mixed African-Caucasian background predominate, in that truly “racially pure” Africans in the United States are extremely rare and possibly non-existent. Something like 78% of the Dominican Republic’s population are of mixed Afro-European ancestry, and Dominican Republic shares much of Haiti’s history and culture. So Haiti is a really special case (comparable to Somalia and Bangladesh more than to most of the other islands of the Antilles, I’d say).

            On a separate subject, you’re obviously a lot more impressed with Desert Storm than I was…. a topic for a different day and forum I guess.

            Good luck with that….the seven states you mentioned are home to millions of gun owning rednecks who outnumber the standing US army….they are pretty good shots and don’t hold their guns sideways when they are firing….you should be kissing their feet that you aren’t starving to death in nigeria….In the very slim chance you actually get your wish and all the white people in those states vacate their homes and farms and move north of the mason dixon you will all starve and die of disease pretty rapidly….careful what you wish for Abibi….you just might get it.

            Also….if you want to try to start a race war with whites don’t count on other non black minorities to lift a finger to help you….amerindians, hispanics, asians, arabs, east indians like you even less than the good old boys do and since they have higher IQ’s they know where their bread is buttered….Pedro, Running Bear, Lee Fong, muhammad and rajiv won’t take a bullet for your silly pipe dream.

  • Dave4088

    According to Wikipedia, Jackson was 79.4% black, 18% white and 2% Latino as of 2010. So this means that not only did 100% of blacks vote for this guy but likely so did all Latinos and a small percentage of deracinated white people.

    Non-whites and especially blacks always, ALWAYS support their racial extremists while whites still reject their own so they can be considered groovy and get admitted into heaven. There isn’t much hope until whites collectively become uncompromisingly and stridently pro-white/anti-non-white.

    • Abibi Fawohodie

      When have whites rejected their racist supremacist? There are 100 million Native Americans on this land before you got here. Any white person not living in Europe is a white extremist by nature. You dont find it odd that most of Americas wealth is in the hand of people who dont like like the indigenous people? Can you name one one Western European country where a black minority or a black majority controls it. The fact you Europeans think this is your land is amusing to me.

      • PesachPatriot

        There weren’t anywhere near close to 100 million amerindians in the new world when europeans first got here….most historians put the number at somewhere around 4 or 5 million across the north american continent…there are more amerindians in the lower 48 states today because of white medicine and food production capabilities than when the jamestown colony was formed….as far as european countries run by blacks how many african countries can a white person even think about living in without get raped, murdered or eaten?

        • Dave4088

          I saw Abibi’s reply this morning but didn’t have time to post since unlike him I had to go to work. Anyway, Pesach pretty much summed up what my response was going to be although Amerindians only numbered around 3 million according to accounts I read. They are now flourishing like never before and have become wealthy thanks to gambling casinos. White people are being disenfranchised and murdered in places like Zimbabwe and S. Africa.

          Blacks aren’t indigenous to Europe, are a small minority and have no right to rule in the ancestral homeland of white people. All nations were founded by conquest and displacement of the natives to some degree and all races have committed evil throughout their history including the saintly black race of which I’m assuming he is a member.

          • PesachPatriot

            I kind of wish the mods had left mr. abibi’s ridiculous posts up for the benefit of people reading this site….what unbelievable arrogance to demand 7 US states as well as the right to rule Europe…50 years ago I thought all they wanted was voting rights, an end to the very sensible jim crow laws and admission to colleges….nothing is ever enough….even the presidency and millions of dollars for playing basketball, football or being in the movies still can’t make up for the slavery not a single living black person in america ever went through….Maybe I should go to Germany and ask Angela Merkel for millions of euro’s, free warsteiner beer for life, a late model bmw or mercedes for me an my wife on account of some unpleasantness that my grandparents went through 70 years ago….oh wait i’m not a whiny aspiring rapper who expects endless gibsmedat….I’m a proud american who is happy with my lot in life.

            I think its pretty funny how mr. abibi is trying to jump on the amerindian bandwagon when most natives can’t stand them and the cherokee were pretty big slave owners themselves in the olden days.

        O.W., do you have a problem with Italians? Hmmmm?

      • ATBOTL

        No, for some reason, it’s a not uncommon black name. I’ve known dark, unmixed looking blacks with name.

    • jane johnson

      I found this, regarding hizzoner’s parents. Looks like they were trying to get paid twice for property that they no longer owned. http://www.charitableplanning.com/document/1186349

      He chose Lumumba after an African leader who helped lead the continent to decolonize and gain independence

      Yeah, how’s that goin’ for ya’?
      I think that America gave an improper good name to “independence”. Every idiot and his cousin saw how great it worked out for America and wanted a piece of that pie, never minding the fact that they weren’t doing that great of a job of ruling themselves before colonization.

    • me

      His ‘slave’ name…Italian? No matter, he’s chosen his side….Marxist Black Racist.

  • Dave4088

    If a former KKK or Aryan Nations member won a mayoral election as a Republican it would be contested by the Holder (in)Justice Dept and the RNC would eject him from the party. So much for white skin privilege.

  • Dave4088

    How long will it be before we read that Jackson, MS needs an emergency manager a la Detroit?

  • MekongDelta69

    Can you imagine an article where they had to phonetically help out the reader if the subject’s name was John Smith?!

    Oh – and btw (and I quote) – “Chokwe Lumumba was born August 2, 1947 in westside of Detroit, Michigan as Edwin Finley Taliaferro which he refers to as his ‘slave name‘.”

    Of course. I’m SURE he worked the cotton fields in DIE-Troit in 1947. Who knew?!?

    • MBlanc46

      So it’s Italian genes that give him that Indian look?

      • jane johnson

        Pretty strange situation. Check the link that I posted under the Bobster’s comment. I’m still looking into the Italian angle, since I’m 2nd generation, and my family would not be “down” with a situation like this. My people, all 4 grandparents, were from northern Italy, and very clannish. I caught hell for marrying a non-Italian, but the family eventually, though grudgingly, accepted him after a few years. Had he been non-white, that NEVER would’ve happened.

        • MBlanc46

          Looks as if T. de Haan has gotten you Italians off the hook for this guy.

      • jeffaral

        Typical Sicilian name. Sicilians and Blacks share a lot in common.

      • T. de Haan

        The Taliaferro’s were Englishmen, of distant Italian ancestry, who migrated to Virginia in the seventeenth-century. A lot of Virginians, black, white and Native Americans are descended from them.

        • MBlanc46

          Thanks. Now that you mention it, I have seen reference to them in my work. Whatever his ancestry, he still looks Subcontinental to me.

  • sbuffalonative

    “Together we will make Jackson rise!”

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. HA HA ha ha ha. HA HA HA HA HA.

    Black cities would be great if they kept black residents. But once a city gets black leadership and black neighborhoods collapse, blacks look for places to escape blacks. Black flight into white neighborhoods.

    • me

      A community is only as good as the people inhabiting it….

  • Spartacus

    I’ll bet he gets arrested for something in less than 2 years.

  • OlderWoman

    Mississippi must be hell to live in if one is White.

  • roadgeek

    What was his slave name?

    • jane johnson

      Toby

  • White Mom in WDC

    Dude, its Mississippi. Who cares. They can vote all the Black Nationalists they want, that state will always be the same as it has been for the lady 100 years.

    • ATBOTL

      No, blacks are already a majority of the births and will be a majority of the voters in a generation. MS will then be under black control.

      • White Mom in WDC

        And then? Again, its Mississippi. Maybe we will get lucky and more black people from America will move there. The n they can secede and take their groids with them.

        • Oh yeah, there’s a good plan. Doff the most racially conscious white people in America bar none.

          • PesachPatriot

            It will be a cold day in hell before the white residents of the magnolia state allow the aspiring rappers to tear down jefferson davis’s house and desecrate the graves of the departed rebels.

  • Herman not Cain

    Mulattoes are the most virulent anti-white racists I have ever seen.

    • jane johnson

      Why do so many embrace their dark side?

  • PesachPatriot

    The guy in the picture looks more like an Indian(subcontinental) or possibly mexican than black. I’m sure his election will end all black on black crime in that city and lead to robust economic development and growth.

    • jeffaral

      He looks like a White Brazilian.

  • AllSeeingEyeSpy

    So. . this kind of begs the question. . what kind of names should us white nationalists give our kids?

    • jane johnson

      Adolf and Benito come to mind. Oh, and Margaret, definitely Margaret.

      • Kalel Jorelson

        Elizabeth I Regina, (et Fidei Defensor Regnum Angliae) led her country to enact “Acts of Uniformity” in the late 16th century, whereby a large minority was directed to conform or leave the country. This was done through Parliament and by due process of law. Her followers in this enterprise had names like Walter Raleigh, Francis Drake, Robert Devereux, Philip Sidney, Richard Grenville, Martin Frobisher.

        And I do think we should remember the older English Kings who fought invasions of foreigners, like Arthur, Alfred, and (though not successful, still noble) Harold Godwinson. First Charles II R in 1660 and then William and Mary in 1689 reclaimed the Elizabethan Victory. We need some enforceable acts of uniformity in the USA now. Ultimately we should seek amendments to the Constitution that might permit such things to happen (modifying the Fourteenth Amendment “birthright” would be a good start, obviously).

        I think those are all good names to keep in mind. We should also keep in mind Charles (called “the Great” or “Charlemagne”) who saved Europe for Christianity by defeating the Moors invasion from the South (Spain & Italy) around 800, and the countless generations of Austrians and Venetians who kept the Turks in Southeastern Europe for 500 years after the fall of Constantinople. Europe needs a New Charlemagne.

        As I have so often written, Adolf and Benito are the idiots who got us into this mess, especially Adolf and his cadre who basically founded the United Nations, destroyed the British and French Colonial Empires, gave Joseph Stalin a glorious life and a peaceful death, made White Supremacy and segregation unpalatable in the USA, and generally. Yes, the Nazis, by their excesses, caused all the “counter-excesses” with which we have to live today, which would never have happened but for the mythology of World War II. I do admit I have a god-son named Hermann Adolf, but I certainly did not choose that name for him.

        • jane johnson

          Interesting history lesson, but I was thinking more long the lines of Hitler, Mussolini, and Sanger or Thatcher(take your pick). I was only half kidding.

          • Kalel Jorelson

            I knew three of whom you were thinking about and I don’t think that Hitler or Mussolini fit the bill at all. I was saying, in fact, that Adolf Hitler and the Nazis basically can be described as the founders of the modern Brave New World of Racial equality because (rightly or wrongly) their images and ideologies are used to justify integration and condemn segregation everywhere.

            As for your Margarets—I’m just neutral about Maggie Thatcher (as beautiful as her voice and speech were, fighting Argentina for the Falkland Islands as the last outpost of the British Empire somehow just never inspired me at all, nor did the fact that she never dismantled one single socialist program in Great Britain, any more than Reagan dismantled any part of the New Deal or Great Society during his 8 years). Margaret Sanger certainly had an interesting life and career, but on the race issue she was totally wishy-washy and inconsistent. I have no particular use or respect for “Planned Parenthood” as it currently operates an American Institution or legal advocacy group, and that is Sanger’s principal legacy.

          • jane johnson

            Fair enough. Charlemagne was a magnificent man, unlike the Medici. I also like Christopher and Leonardo, or Leonard, if you prefer. Are you a history professor? Great posts!

          • Kalel Jorelson

            Thank you for the compliment. I have a Ph.D. but don’t teach.

  • WowReally

    Imagine Jared Taylor being elected as a mayor? It’s only ok when blacks are nationalists. Got it.

    • Gislia Jackson

      The last IRS mayor of Jackson openly carried a gun while roaming the streets.

  • Bob Jenkins

    Here’s a fun exercise. Close your eyes, and picture in your head an image of the type of person that would be named Chokwe Lumumba. Go on, I’ll give you a minute or two.

    It was a voodoo doctor chanting while dancing around a fireside with his spear, wasn’t it?

    • MBlanc46

      No, it was a typical middle-aged Afro-American, perhaps a bit portly, who has adopted an African sounding name in order to demonstrate his deep connection to Mother Africa (original name Willie Lee Johnson, perhaps). I certainly didn’t expect a guy who looks as if he’s from the Subcontinent.

    • me

      It looks like a president….

  • Yale2001

    Sit back and watch the decline of this city. The black population will support him whole-heartedly even as the economy crumbles, violence increases, and political scandels go throw the roof. Then they will demand more from the fed gov (out taxes) to keep financing their criminal behavior, and cry racism if we don’t.

  • jeffaral

    Lots of White people voted for him. Mississippians have the highest obesity rate and are the most Bible thumping, also the dummbest of all Americans. I am not surprised.

  • curri

    Speech given by Carleton Putnam in Jackson in 1961:

  • Paleoconn

    He’s obviously mulatto like saint Barack. His hair is straight and he is caramel. The other three candidates must have been full blacks, given the demographics of the community.

    I’m not sure what the story is here.
