The Republican Governor in New Jersey Chris Christie managed to eliminate the only black state level Judge last week, and appoint a Republican right wing bigot.

N.J. governor dumping state high court’s only black judge
TRENTON — New Jersey’s new Republican governor has made his first move to reshape the state Supreme Court, ousting the only black justice and nominating a lawyer with long experience in private practice to take his place.
Gov. Chris Christie made his announcement today, weeks before the end of Justice John E. Wallace’s seven-year first term.
He selected Anne M. Patterson, who is white, as a replacement. If the Mendham Township resident is confirmed by the Senate, the court’s makeup would stand with six white members and one Hispanic in a state with a black population of about 12 percent. Patterson is a registered Republican and Wallace a Democrat. (more…)

Steele’s enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that Republicans lost the NY 23rd race, in no small part due to infighting. The candidate supported by the uber conservatives like Palin, Limbaugh, and Pawlenty…
Placing a Democrat in the seat for the first time since the 19th Century. Taking the big hit here was the Sno’ Ho’ – Sarah Palin, who put here name and money behind the losing conservative Republican candidate.
The Governor’s win in Virginia, by Bob McDonnell featured a decidedly moderate stance with heavy outreach to urban and suburban populations as well as minorities – once again a huge departure from “conservative politics”.

OK – This one starts with Faux News trying to make a “News” Issue out of a proposal presented before the City Council of Patterson, New Jersey. Never mind the fact that the proposal was voted down…
It’s a good opportunity for some right-wing righteous fact free indignation!
The start of this one is a riot, with the Faux News “reporter” informing us that the other Faux News “Reporter” is (gasp!”…
Now, this one has apparently spawned some reaction, purportedly by some of the citizens of Patterson, NJ – and thus the following video posted on YouTube -
Maybe it’s just me… But is the woman in the video, opposing a night curfew…
Sporting a set of canines (fangs!) that would make Count Dracula melt in envy?
OK… Obviously the proposal wasn’t going to get the “vampire vote”.
(And I apologize to the Sister, because I sure as H, don’t want to get “shanked” by one of her “older friends” …
Or was that fiends?

There is a myth formulated by some that black folks weren’t (and aren’t) interested in education, and somehow – before the Brown vs Board of Education decision didn’t develop facilities of their own. I’ve previously discussed the “Jenny Dean” School in Mananas, Virginia and Maggie Walker in Richmond, Virginia.
The New Jersey Historical Society has developed a film about the Manual Training and Industrial School for Colored Youth, or “Bordentown School” as known to locals.
Here is an old film about “Bordentown”. It looks to have been shot in the late 30′s or mid 40′s -
Documentary chronicles Bordentown school as ‘A Place out of Time’
The school’s bloodlines go back to Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois. It was visited by Washington, Paul Robeson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Einstein and Joe Louis. Duke Ellington and Nat King Cole played there. So did Althea Gibson. Those are the big names.
