Tensions were high at a rally in front of Jersey City City Hall hosted by the Newark-based Morticians That Care group, addressing black youth dying from violent crime.
Emotions ran high at the rally, and tensions flared between the NAACP and members of the crowd over the shooting death of a black 20-year-old male by a Jersey City police officer.
Tyrone Muhammed, of Morticians That Care, chastised the Jersey City NAACP and branch president William Braker for multiple issues, including who would pay for the funeral costs of the young man killed by a Jersey City police officer.
The Brother went in!!!
He is so right!
Lord our ppl'
Awesome Tyrone you are to be commended.
This was so disrespectful. According to the ad that was in the Jersey Journal the rally was put together by the NAACP and the Urban League. If anything is going to be accomplished everyone has to work together. Things are the way they are now because we don't. SMDH…I bet the NAACP wishes they would've never invited this dude….a mess.
Like Tyrone, said the NAACP nor the Urban League "put together" the rally it was all done by MTC. You are right all parties need to get together to address an issue that is plaguing the streets of J.C.
It's Hard to accept all the Reality in our Neightbort hood today? So sad.!
yes they did.
