Chokwe Lumumba, a member of the Black Liberation Army, is running for mayor of Jackson, MS. He currently serves on the city council.
“There is an opportunity now to bring a new vision to Jackson that will bring economic development and needed jobs to greater Jackson and not just downtown. Public funds must be used for the benefit of the majority of the residents of Jackson not for the private benefit of a few. That’s why I’m running for Mayor.”
His statement suggests he is no different from Barack Obama in wanting to redistribute wealth.
