New Rochelle, New York African American Group Says That Westchester County Executive Candidate Noam Bramson Is Racist And Hostile To People Of Color

Democratic Candidate Bramson has had trouble with the New Rochelle African-American community for years.With the most recent incident being his expulsion of New Rochelle NAACP President Ron Williams from a public New Rochelle park.

The New Rochelle Lincoln Zuber Riders for Justice which is publicizing the longstanding issues between the black community and Bramson.

NO AFRICAN AMERICAN SEAT AT THE TABLE

The group is upset that Bramson is destroying New Rochelle’s District 3, the city’s African-American council district, by lowering the percentage of African-Americans.

Census figures show that the black population had shrunk below 50 percent in the district from 2000 to 2010.

Further, minority citizens across the county feel that Noam Branson's insular campaign has set to the side minority democrats who initially supported county legislator Ken Jenkins bid for county executive.

NO AFRICAN AMERICAN VOICE IN WESTCHESTER COMMUNITIES

When Ron Williams, the president of the New Rochelle NAACP, endorsed Bromson's opponent Rob Astorino, he had his news conference expelled from a public New Rochelle park.

The New Rochelle Lincoln Zuber Riders website says: “New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson has a long and disturbing history of hostility and discrimination against the African American community,” and “Mayor Bramson is no friend to people of color.”

The name of his organization is a tribute to a New Rochelle school desegregation case 50 years ago.

THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE: Gannet Publisher Janet Hasson Is Now Backtracking And Finally Put out A Tiny Story About The New Rochelle Lincoln Zuber Riders

The story was placed bellow the fold on the front page of the Journal News in response to articles that have started to go viral n social media websites in Westchester County.

You know that a newspaper has failed its readers when they don't just report the news, but become a news story themselves.

SUPPRESSING FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN THE MINORITY COMMUNITY

Gannet Publisher Janet Hasson did not return calls seeking comment, but stated in her paper that Gannet wanted The New Rochelle Lincoln Zuber Riders to change wording in the advertisement, linked above, and the African American group refused

The Fact Is Gannets Journal News has a long history of trying to control and suppress the many varied voices in the African American community, by only interviewing the same handful black voices over and over and over.

ARE MINORITIES GETTING A FAIR SHOT IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NEW YORK?

The Answer is “No” And It Is Now Time To Ask What Can be Done?

The Journal News, has tried (and repeatedly failed) at minority outreach many times,but the bias against the new bread of minority activists is clear in the Journal news editors refusal to publish concerns raised by The New Rochelle Lincoln Zuber Riders until now.

But Gannet Publisher Janet Hasson fails to realize that Westchester County is bubbling with a growing population of talented, lively minority students eager to prepare for careers in film, television, theater, print and broadcast journalism.

These minority communities want to bring a richness of culture, ideas and perspectives to the pages of the Journal News and are even willing to buy ads to do so.

Yet African-Americans, Latinos and Asians from all over the United States, Puerto Rico and Central America, many of them children of immigrants from Jamaica, Barbados, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Nigeria, Cameroon and South Africa are ignored by Gannet Publisher Janet Hasson in Westchester County.

Here Is The Story That The Journal News Finially Put Up About New Rochelle Lincoln Zuber Riders Yesterday....

GROUP CALLS BROMSON, HOSTILE, RACIST

Accusations of racism were injected into the Westchester County executive race over the weekend when a newly formed group from New Rochelle accused Democratic candidate Noam Bramson of hostility toward the African-American community in the city where he serves as mayor.

The Bramson campaign immediately hit back, saying the accusations came from proxies for the campaign of Republican County Executive Rob Astorino. The Astorino campaign denied involvement and his spokesman, Bill O’Reilly, said they don’t want the distraction from the campaign.

“It’s just not our issue. We don’t want to be involved in this,” he said
