THE WHEEL SPEAKS ON 2013 – In A City Hang em’ Why?

  1. 1.   1     THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013  –  In  A  City  Hang  em’  Why?   On  Tuesday  of  last  week  in  my  hometown  of  Jersey  City  New  Jersey  where  I  was   born  and  raised  as  a  child  a  heinous  crime  was  committed.  A  black  man  was  found   early  in  the  morning  dangling  from  a  tree  pronounce  dead  on  the  scene  the   prosecutors  office  immediately  declared  it  didn’t  seem  as  if  foul  play  was  involved.   The  man  was  61  years  old  name  Jeffrey  Kililibwa  and  the  Kenyan  community  is  at   arms  for  what  has  happen  to  a  countryman.       “His  hands  were  bound  with  a  rope.  That’s  not  how  people  hang  themselves.   We  must  know  the  truth,”  ~  Nelson  Mogesha  quoted  August  14th  in  the  Kenyan   publication  Faafiye  (to  see  the  entire  article  copy  attach  url  below)   http://www.faafiye.com/kenyan-­‐man-­‐found-­‐hanging-­‐on-­‐a-­‐tree-­‐in-­‐new-­‐jersey-­‐us/     In  a  city  where  African  American  people  are  dying  at  an  incredibly  alarming  rate   every  three  of  four  days  through  acts  of  violence  without  a  reprieve  in  immediate   sight.  A  city  in  which  I  see  countless  conversations  on  social  media  from  friends  and   family  who  have  lost  sons  daughters  brothers  sisters  and  even  husbands  or  wives   and  still  have  not  an  answer  as  to  why?  In  a  city  where  there  quite  honestly  are   people  within  city  government  who  frown  whenever  a  legitimate  question  is   proposed  regarding  the  safety  of  African  Americans  in  Jersey  City?      
  2. 2.   2   It  became  so  obvious  it  was  difficult  to  remain  in  a  city  where  so  many  have  sold   there  souls  just  for  what  will  be  very  short  live  favor.  In  a  city  where  some  people   even  of  African  American  decent  have  been  brainwashed  into  believing  that  those   who  aren’t  or  especially  those  who  probably  have  never  been  in  favor  of  the   eventual  winner  of  the  recent  Mayoral  race  are  being  punished.  In  a  city  for  months   where  there  were  individuals  who  for  months  even  though  they  probably  knew   what  the  results  of  the  Mayoral  election  would  be  had  no  intention  on  voting   because  they  could  foresee  exactly  what’s  happening  now?   This  subjects  very  sensitive  in  particularly  for  those  who  maybe  guilty  Jersey  City  as   mention  my  hometown  has  been  re-­‐classified  and  unofficially  zoned  and  for  years   the  borders  which  surround  the  African  American  community  are  well  known.   There  are  people  considered  undesirable  and  it  is  the  hope  of  those  who  have  a  new   vision  that  in  time  undesirable  people  will  eliminate  themselves.  And  with  the  lack   of  public  safety  as  well  in  these  communities  and  the  new  tactical  approach  to  law   enforcement  the  city  will  adapt  in  order  to  alleviate  a  particular  element  the  vision   becomes  very  attainable.     It’s  becoming  terribly  confusing  how  I  can  read  articles  about  people  running  and   especially  city  inaugurations  that  appear  almost  Camelot  like  almost  giving  me  a   blow  by  blow  play  by  play  account  for  the  entire  day.  Security  up  the  wazoo   sharpshooters  national  guards  dignitaries  and  anyone  else  willing  to  smile  for  a   camera  or  dress  like  there  part  of  a  side  show  for  some  attention  more  than  3000   miles  away.  Yet  how  come  we  can’t  get  something  as  simple  as  the  truth  in   particularly  with  an  issue  that’s  as  sensitive  as  this  and  not  only  because  the   individual  is  black  but  because  he  was  a  living  breathing  person  with  possibly  a   family  and  others  he  cared  about  and  vice  versa?       One  might  wonder  why  would  other  than  my  unconditional  love  for  the  city  I  was   born  and  raised  in  I  have  4  grandchildren  that  live  within  a  2  block  radius  of  the   location  which  is  a  pubic  park  where  they  play  occasionally.  And  these  children  who   at  times  have  to  travel  to  the  neighboring  school  to  be  picked  up  by  a  bus  to  bring   them  to  their  daily  destination  could  have  possibly  even  discovered  the  hanging   man  from  a  tree  in  the  early  morning  as  well?     Why  should  we  today  in  2013  in  a  country  where  in  December  1865  the  United   States  abolished  slavery  with  the  Thirteenth  Amendment  to  the  United  States   Constitution;  and  about  40,000  remaining  slaves  are  affected  we  still  have  to  ask  the   question  why?                  
  3. 3.   3     In  a  city  where  even  today  as  mention  frowns  are  created  when  this  will  be  read  for   a  reason?  And  that’s  because  no  matter  who  you  are  it’s  become  very  blatantly  clear   if  you’re  of  African  American  decent  you  better  be  very  aware  of  where  you  walk  in   my  city  and  at  times  especially  how  you  talk?  In  a  city  where  the  last  question  you’re   expected  to  ask  especially  after  a  hanging  is  why?     Respectfully,   THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013   (The  Way  Humanity/Hudson  Expects  Everyone  to  Live)
