Do you approve of Cory A. Booker as Mayor?

I am a Philadelphia native. Yesterday was my first experience with Newark. As messed up as Philly is, one thing's for sure-nobody over age 30 cares anymore what anyone thinks just because and will keep up appearances and we are free to speak up if it bothers us enough. On the 25 bus to a Kuffar black sister drives every day I was as polite as most never are on those buses and asked her for where 70 Howard street was. She pretended she didn't know, then barely behind my back with some Kuffar negro (men like that never will make it to a real black man) laughed about how white girls who take shahadah are trying to be ghetto. The irony is I'm 3/8 Native American and 1/4 Afro-Cuban-less white than Barack Obama-but even if it's true what she was thinking; so what? She's paid more than most teachers in this town and I'd hope her job entails treating the public with simple decency if they do the same. I got to the Masjid and that was great. Then, I walked to Newark Penn Station from Masjid Rahmah. Usually I look the other way, but not this time-a boy who was barely 14 years old was walking around with pants at his knees. I told him to please pull up his pants because I didn't like having to see that. The fact that anyone who is over a certain age has to suffer things like that in silence from the under 18 crowd at all is something beyond ridiculous. The mother, who looked older than me but wasn't (I'm 34) yelled "Look the other way". Maybe that's exactly the problem right now-that we will not speak up and do what we can because we're so scared of opinions, especially in NJ where so-called well meaning enlightened white Rutgers University social worker types actually thought for whatever reason that this dynamic of political correctness run amuck would create a better society for anyone-the truth was that much worse came up. I'm beyond tired of all this Judy Blume mindset in this state. Her writing is banal and applauds kids bad behavior while it assumes 4th graders are a lot less able than they are. Yes, things were worse back in the 60's from the outside-but now it's worse all together and the problem isn't the white man, it's us. If I'm offending anyone, I really am past the point of caring about whether I have anyone's approval. Since the likelihood that I have it coming from any section of society just because is pretty slim at best; it's a lost cause. Maybe if we all would feel the same our kids and this state might not be. As Salaam Alaikum Rahmatullah Wa Barakatu

He is fake and nowhere to be found in newark..he is not for the people of Newark..it's sad, I am not from Newark, but moved here because my son goes to school here..I like Newark very much..I see so much injustice in this town, and the people under him, do not follow the rules that other have to follow..I see cops speeding, going thru red lights, putting sirens on not necessary, sitting in cars texting while they are on duty, and not paying attention to what really happen, I see both officers, and men from the council driving while being on cell phones...I can go on and on...but where is Cory Booker? During Sandy he was no where..and we were without electricity for three or more week...he claims that he does things but what does he do? When he is always away, trying to get in the limelight..he is a joke...hoe does he travel so much? With whos money? He is not a real mayor
