THIRD WARD MAP - Shame of the City


Both the mayor and the EO city council insist that
the recent violent demonstrations in Ferguson, MO
and in New York City are all about race relations
instead of disrespect for life, and disregard for
public safety. They ignore the Black-on-Black
violence that continues to trouble our "majority-
minority" communities in
East Orange and Newark.
12/12/14 - Jim Gerrish - E. Orange, NJ


After seeing the youth of Ferguson, MO burning,
looting and trashing their city in honor of a
thief and bully
, it's nice to see the youth of the East
Orange Unified Marching Band
looking to their
, giving one another a hand up, marching to
instead of spreading hate and fear.
11/29/14 - Jim Gerrish - E.Orange, NJ


Documents From Ferguson
Grand Jury Have Been
Quit Marching and Read

I agree that the students of East Orange and their
parents and teachers need more awareness about
what they are protesting. They are mimicking the
"hands up don't shoot" fiction from the Ferguson
looters and rioters, unaware that the grand jury

More reading and
less marching are needed to determine the truth
about what happened in Ferguson, if anyone really

Remembering Al Sharpton

"There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."
