During his 2017 election campaign, Chokwe Antar Lumumba, the city’s ‘woke’ mayor, promised to transform Jackson, Mississippi into “the most radical city on the planet.” He promised a guaranteed income and an end to policing and of course urban farms.
Meanwhile, the citizens of the city would just be absolutely overjoyed, if the mayor could just provide the basics, like drinking water without sewage in it.
The Daily Caller explains:
Chokwe Antar Lumumba, Democratic mayor of Jackson, Mississippi, promised to make the capital “the most radical city on the planet” during his 2017 campaign, but so far he’s been unable to even solve even the city’s basic infrastructure problems and the city’s running water is now unsafe to drink.
He campaigned on plans to introduce universal basic income and alternatives to policing, to replace vacant lots with urban farms and to resolve chronic issues with the city’s water and roads in order to break the “cycles of humiliation” he said black residents experience in Jackson, the most heavily black large city in the U.S. Instead, the city’s water problems have worsened, and Republican Gov. Tate Reeves declared a state of emergency Tuesday because running water is not reliably available nor safe for consumption.
Meanwhile, in Britain
A recent report by Policy Exchange, a British think tank, has concluded that the police in that country have lost their way. They have gone ‘woke’ and are more concerned about people saying not nice things on Twitter than actual crime.
