    Having been accused on another forum of ignoring racial issues by one of the ministers, I’ll say it again. This is Union County and things will be done Ray’s way. Unless either the Senator and/or the KU President pass away, nothing is going to change.

    Until then, many fine stores carry adult sized pants.

    This is a wonderful editorial. The Black women who have been persecuted by the Dawood Farahi regime well understand that many other communities are suffering also. We have had to depend on our traditional civil rights remedies because Senator Ray Lesniak has convinced so many New Jersey leaders to dismiss the problems at the University as just being part of the Kean Federation of Teachers labor dispute. This is not true. There were gestures of disrespect to Kean’s highest ranking Black educators as early as the presidential search in 2002. If course, other groups also continue to be victimized. Dr. King warned us that “ Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”* New Jersey tax-payers deserve to know the truth about Kean University though an independent, comprehensive investigation and a forensic audit with oversight from the Legislature. Rev. Slaughter and the Ministerial Alliance, as well as the New Jersey NAACP must keep up the good work so that truth is on its way.
