The wheel speaks 2013 – the elective selective process of dissecting black people by politicians

  1. 1. THE WHEEL SPEAKS 2013 – The Elective Selective Process OfDissecting Black People By PoliticiansThere is a message being sent throughout Jersey City; which quite sadlydoes confirm how far we as a country haven’t come particularly here in thecity I was born and raised in. People are migrating here and in most casesnot necessarily because it’s a great place in which they’ve targeted toestablish roots or a family because it’s convenient and very muchaccessible to where ever they may have a vested interest. Many havemigrated from New York in particular and now plenty of the people herealready program to live a certain way and very respectfully I must say it’salmost a robotic existence. Jersey City for many years has been a placewhere hundreds of thousands of people to this day have been born andraised and in the years to come many of our grand children and theirchildren will be reared here as well. And then suddenly it became veryapparent that although the world as we knew it was progressively changingalmost similar to the pilgrims landing on Plymouth Rock the Jersey Citythat most of these individuals had migrated to in mass quantity was almosta naïve like place that could be manipulated as well orchestratedreminiscent to the story historically told about the original inhabitants ofthese United States the American Indian. And although very far removedand comparison wise some may upon reading this have a chuckle butentertain this reflective personal though for a few moments if you will as Icontinue to elaborate. For a number of years Jersey City was consideredan Irish Catholic city where particularly the former Mayor Frank Hagueliterally ruled for 30 years from 1917 – 1947. Hague ran the city with aniron fist while, at the same time, molding governors, United Statessenators, and judges to his whims. Boss Hague was known to be loud andvulgar, but dressed in a stylish manner earning him the nickname "KingHanky-Panky". In his later years in office, Hague would often dismiss hisenemies as "reds" or "commies". Hague lived like a millionaire, despitehaving an annual salary that never exceeded $8,500 After Haguesretirement from politics, a series of mayors including John V. Kenny,Thomas J. Whelan and Thomas F. X. Smith attempted to take control ofHagues organization, usually under the mantle of political reform. Andwe’ve lived through the Gerald McCann (who has mentored a current
  2. 2. hopeful candidate) reign as well the more modern thinker like a BretShundler, and now the current Mayor Healy and of course the hopefulSteve Fulop to date here in 2013. Beginning in the 1980s, development of thewaterfront in an area previously occupied by rail yards and factories helpedto stir the beginnings of a renaissance for Jersey City. The rapidconstruction of numerous high-rise buildings increased the population andled to the development of the Exchange Place financial district, also knownas Wall Street West, one of the largest banking centers in the UnitedStates. Large financial institutions such as UBS, Goldman Sachs, ChaseBank, Citibank and Merrill Lynch occupy prominent buildings on the JerseyCity waterfront, some of which are among the tallest buildings in NewJersey. Simultaneous to this building boom, the light-rail network wasdeveloped. With 18,000,000 square feet (1,700,000 m2) of office space, ithas the nations 12th largest downtown. Repeat the 12th largest in thenation. But of recent what’s made in particularly Ward F more so attractiveis the prospect of new development with projects such as Berryland Parkon Garfield Avenue http://www.thejcra.org/index.php?p=project-details&pid=32 as well the much anticipated 600 million dollars connectedto the redevelopment of McKinley Square http://www.nj.com/jjournal-news/index.ssf/2012/06/st_peters_college_dorm_project.htmlIt has become very much apparent that real estate which has always beentreated like waste land is the target and agenda wise what better way toattack any unsuspecting victim than through the inhabitants. As of the 2010 United States Census, there were247,597 people, 96,859 households, and 57,631 families residing in JerseyCity. The population density was 16,736.6 inhabitants per square mile(6,462.0 /km2). There were 108,720 housing units at an average density of7,349.1 per square mile (2,837.5 /km2). The racial makeup of the city was32.67% (80,885) White, 25.85% (64,002) Black or African American,0.51% (1,272) Native American, 23.67% (58,595) Asian, 0.07% (161)Pacific Islander, 12.81% (31,726) from other races, and 4.42% (10,956)from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 27.57%(68,256) of the population. Pay very close attention to the last figureHispanic and Latino how the population has boomed and since 2010 ofcourse it’s even greater. And suddenly due to what can be viewed as ourdisconnect as a people to many community concerns and especially in the
  3. 3. voting process many people associated with political organization haveeven begun to target there campaigns more so to the Latino community byrecruiting them and deploying them as well utilizing their services invarious capacities for example like committee people. And statisticianassociated with in particularly the younger progressive thinking politicalmachines intently wrote off guess who, you got it African American people.And it becomes very much so important to empower high profile people ofinfluence from certain communities in particularly current elected officialswholl do and say anything scripted to recite because alltheyre incompetence or inability to stand up for there own people. Or evenin some cases belittled or ridicule them publicly. And suddenly it was a priority to pain the illusion theillusion that suddenly regular folks would be important and during the entiretime let’s not speak of the potential millions and millions of dollars that’sassociated and spoken about in meetings Ward F residents are neverpublic advised of by people who are supposedly trying to make and beabout change. Seems to me as if the subliminal message is they lessthey’re informed the better. And if I didn’t know better I would bet for surethat a Mayoral hopeful who worked previously at Goldman Sachs didn’tsuddenly and magically decide to leave a job and it not be personallybeneficial to his vision. Which in some circles has become apparent thatthe vision is not inclusive and becoming quite obvious includes only certainAfrican American people. And those with an opinion are suddenly labeledas either trouble-makers of rebel rousers if they take any initiative to speakespecially if it is considered unfavorable to a cult like elitist vision. The elective selective process of dissectingblack people by politicians a sensitive personal assertion and for sureunderstanding the consequences in this cesspool of a city currently Iconfidently stand behind the statement. I have since birth been onecomfortable enough to have an opinion even at times being made anexample exiled even ostracized during my lifetime and I am pretty sure thiswill never change. The elective selective process of dissecting blackpeople by politicians to ignore what’s happening not only currently to youbut how it will effect you children and their children for years. Butcompensated with a summer time picnic with hot dogs or an exploitativeweekend hiatus for our children which was used to piggy bank the realagenda. The elective selective process of dissecting black people bypoliticians which eventually won’t include you but will run rapid throughyour neighborhood and your community as developers of companies which
  4. 4. will receive tax abatements across the board will reap the benefits. Butlastly the elective selective process of dissecting black people bypoliticians which whether you see it or not is a process that’s not underconstruction it’s already started and the job is almost 99.9% done and onMay 14th 2013 the elective selective process of dissecting blackpeople by politicians will become every African American resident inJersey Cities problem as well point this melting pot of a city in a raciallydivided state. Because all African American people are not smiling eventhough some might want it to be perceived this way and loving your peopleshould never be viewed as racist even though some elect not tounderstand leaving yours behind is showing you don’t even know how tolove yourself.Respectfully,THE WHEEL SPEAKS ON 2013
