"Black Nationalism" in Brooklyn


“Black Nationalism” in Brooklyn

New York City council voted against naming a Brooklyn street after a black militant who was once sentenced to seven years in prison for his role in a murder. (released after only 15 months). Self-proclaimed “black nations” staged a rally and posted their own “Sonny Carson Avenue” signs on the streets. During the rally black city council member Charles Baron says they will unilaterally rename more Brooklyn streets after radicals, including a Philadelphia cop killer.

From the New York Post…

In 1990, Carson personally led the campaign of boycott and physical intimidation against Korean-owned delis in Brooklyn’s black neighborhoods, marching with signs that read, “Don’t Shop With People Who Don’t Look Like Us.”

Defy the boycott and you were spat upon and threatened: “In the future,” he said, “there’ll be funerals, not boycotts.”

A year later, he hailed the Crown Heights lynch mob that killed Hasidic scholar Yankel Rosenbaum, saying he was “very proud” of what had happened.
