Winding Woods Drug,shooting,youth racing from 12mid to 7am Mayor[edit]

I am a black woman who have vitilago and heart problems. I have been fighting my complex for three years for the security. The Mayor and the police department have been give notes and things that could stop the problems in Winding Woods and they have gotten mad at me. I was sitting in my car waiting for another set of children to come off the bus and office 134 gave me and ticket and said if I did not move he would tow my car. I have ask for my protection in this complex not for him to come and target me. I am a black woman turing white and I have threaton and they have allow the youth to paint ball my car,egg my apartment and my car and have done nothing to they youth that is running around breaking into people cars and stilling there GPS system. I have gone to City Hall and spoke in front of the Mayor Several time and he is still not help me clean Winding Wood up. I have ask him to ride in Sayreville many time and he is afraid to come into our complex. We live in Middlesex county and I have been in the Starledger and the Suburban several times and the City is not trying to back me up. They are trying to get even with me and when I call in to report things to LT Brenner, all they do is let it go to voice mail and then they might send some police out. When they need to come out at 12mid night and 2am they will not come in here. This complex have had a killing and someone is still shooting in here and they have done nothing about it. I need you to help me get jesse Jackson and come and take with the Chief of police and the Mayor. They have called me in there office and I have meet with the owner of Winding Woods I even got a pettition sign by over 200 people. I have pictures of a van been shot in with bullets, we found bullets and the same cars speed ever night ever night and they want to pick on a handicape lady with vitilago and other illness. I am fighting them if it takes my las breath. I really need your help! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:23, 18 February 2008 (UTC)


Al is nothing more than a political opportunist. It's so easy for him to sit back and blame everything on the white man. Al doesn't ever want to see the blacks succeed; if they do then he doesn't have a job. Al wants to keep the blacks in the ghetto, so he he can use them to his advantage. Blacks always complain about how whitey has exploited them for his needs- now uncle Al's doing the very same thing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:42, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Ground zero answer for Rec.Sharpton[edit]


I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against a mosque being built near Ground Zero.

I think it should be the goal of every American to be tolerant. The mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance.

That is why I also propose, that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque thereby promoting tolerance within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs (which would be gay) "The Turban Cowboy" and the other being a topless bar "You Mecca Me Hot". Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork and adjacent to that have an open barbeque pork rib restaurant, called something like “ Iraq o’ Ribs”? Across the street there could be a very daring lingerie store called Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret with sexy mannequins in the window modelling the goods. Next door to the lingerie shop, there would be room for an Adult Toy Shop (Koranal Knowledge), its name in flashing neon lights, and on the other side a liquor store, maybe call it "Morehammered"? Then the Muslims could be allowed to show their tolerance. Problem solved.

If you agree in promoting tolerance and you think this is a good plan, pass it on. Brian Chapuisat

I have not yet join I am an African American female I held a position as a customer services manage the place of work was Safeway INC in Moses lake Washington. I was the first African American female that held that position in that store 03/ 28/2012 around the hour of 10:00a.m. Or before 11:a.m. I was call into the office. I was talk to very aggressive and put down as I was poor black women on welfare by two of the loss prevention guys. I was accused by a co-worker of waived my late fees on my video account the problem with her she felt that she did not have to do what I ask of her. I have complained about her several times to the store manager of her disrespecting me as her manager .The manager would just end up insulting my culture and the way I talk or express myself. My union let me down as well, the so call evidences that they say that they had were not evidence of me violating any policy.

This employee went into my video account without my knowledge and though that she had something on me and went to report it to the store manager, and I guess they got together and plan a way to get rid of me and there were several other employee look at my video account  as well again without my knowledge. I was fired before they suspended mean according to the paper work 03/24/2012 like I stated earlier they approach me on 03/28/2012, and some of the days I was accuse of doing this I was not working those day. The Safeway INC violated the collecting bargain agreement act. Six months later I was call by my union rep Peggy to come to this meeting that I had no knowledge of at the Best western Hotel here in Moses lake  Washington, I was accuse of waived my late fees I was not brief by my union rep before this meeting don't you know the rep for the company and the store manager and the loss prevention guy and the labor relation rep for the company and another rep for the company and the union reps did not know  how to do the procedure a late fee that I was accuse of  this is just a  brief of what happen to me now I cannot get a job in this town because this company has mar my name  and my work ethic and discriminated against me.  My accuser get this she did what they accuse me of doing, now I was told by an attorney here that I better be careful because there is a thin bloodline here that have tides with the company I said sir it not ok to falsely accuse someone something of like theft and attack their culture because this company allow people like that to keep their job and discriminate against a person because of the color of their skin and sex and their culture. I notice in this little small town at some of the business here they will not hire an African American person but they can shop at that establishment.
