Ella Jones Elected as First Black Mayor of Ferguson, Missouri (Video)


Ella Jones

History was made in Ferguson, Missouri Tuesday as 65-year-old Ella Jones became the first African-American and first woman to be elected mayor.

Her election comes nearly six years after the city erupted in protests after a white police officer shot and killed Michael Brown.

Jones said of her victory; “I’ve got work to do — because when you’re an African-American woman, they require more of you than they require of my counterpart.”

Like i said i guess its the people you know and where you are from even at these rallies most people address those we are talking about as negros, so keep following your belief

I am a black man myself, but don't know any black people that still use the word negro unless they are referring to the Negro College Fund.

L when you say we or are you speaking for, where are you from? I dont know any intelligent black person who does not use the word negro except for those who don't know their history, i used the work n***** when i see and tall to a n*****, i use the word negro when i see a confuse person of color is hiding behind excusing, thats why every one still discriminate against blacks so many of you are making excuses and condoning the niggers, i would never classify my self as a n***** because i am better than that as a black man and i know the difference between the two, but let me help you out, a black stand to build and elevate, a n***** live to destroy and hate any one who looks like him especially if that person is doing better than him, for all those years look at the black community why do you think it is the worse compare to any others in America, so leta understand each other you have your views and your Morales, if you are happy and satisfy with the way you live and the person that you are keep being so, but dont tell me how to think or how to view the world, i am far .from a retard by not seeing when something dont make sense, i call a n***** out when i see him so those who are looking at us know the different, i am never upset when a white person use the word n***** because he or she is not talking to me, i do not answer to what people call me unless they address me by my name, if a white person call me a n***** to my face it is my right to defend my self against that white person because i am feeling threaten due to hate so that will be the last time that person would use that word, so i am very different from the niggers,
i dont make white people feel comfortable to be their friends and fit in, i dont even want to converse with them and this is me in person just like i am may be the only black person in America who can be honest to a white person and let them know i am very racist and dont care what they think, so thats why i can call a n***** out each time he does something that proves white people right, so if you dont agree with the way i express my self by pass my comment just like i bypass all the rest unless they address me, use that energy in something you believe or to interact with those with the dame views

It is a great thing that they have done this. @mr1stroke why couldn't you have just said blacks. We don't even use the word "negro" anymore. If you got to be racist, bigot, or condesending then please keep your comments to yourself

@jon Jon, go to the app store, locate, download it, scroll down to citizen of citizens, and read what it says. The only people that are really citizens are white people.

I like to read interesting news

I like when negros are so excited about the first black this and that, so what exactly is going to change. For those who knows the history of black people in that state, if you are so excited how about we evaluate her first term and see the better compare to the condition before her

I never understood, how their are more black people in Ferguson Missouri, but they never had a black mayor. They were asleep all these years.
