    Fight breaks out at New Jersey anti-violence demonstration

    An anti-violence demonstration in Newark, New Jersey, devolved into a physical altercation between two activists.

    NJ.com reports (Fight breaks out at Newark anti-violence rally (PHOTOS) | NJ.com ) the small crowd began arguing on the steps of Newark City Hall on Wednesday about the city's attempts to curb violence.

    The demonstration was organized by two anti-violence groups.

    They say they wanted to urge Mayor Ras Baraka to put his "quality of life plan" into action to help address violence in the city. A group of Baraka supporters appeared and an argument ensued.

    At one point, one man put his hands around another's neck and pushed him to the ground.

    Organizers and other participants said the skirmish lasted only a few minutes, and there were no serious injuries.

    Baraka says the scuffle is being investigated by Newark police and called it "disheartening."

    Oh the irony

    Baraka was featured on singer Lauryn Hill '​s 1998 The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, as the narrator of several interludes on the album. He also recorded the intro to The Score, The Fugees' second album. Baraka and Hill recorded an unreleased single together entitled "Hot Beverage in the Winter", which later featured on his spoken-word album Shorty for Mayor

    His poet dad born Le Roi Jones caused mixed views as a great poet or promoter of violence tale yer pick

    Watts, Jerry Gafio. Amiri Baraka: The Politics and Art of a Black Intellectual, New York: New York University Press, 2001.

    Wiki says
    Others have said his work is an expression of violence, misogyny, homophobia and racism. Regardless of viewpoint, Baraka’s plays, poetry, and essays have been defining texts for African-American culture

    Quite a few people appear to become more bigoted as they get older.
