You would have thought that when HKONJ marchers met in Chavis Park on Saturday, February 14, 2009, some lip service would be paid to the violence plaguing this community. Camden Street is just blocks away in one direction and Bragg Street just blocks away in another.
Not a mention. Nothing.
They did help to highlight Bragg Street though and completely unintentionally. In order to put on their show, traffic was diverted around MLK boulevard. That resulted in a caravan of drivers being diverted onto Bragg Street to navigate around the "march."
In due fairness, there was an outcry against violence. Violence against pigs that is.
flesh, milk, eggs .... products of violence.
There ya go.
