Lead poisoning of African students in New Jersey schools

Eight more New Jersey schools have been found to have elevated lead levels in their water supply.

A month ago, 30 schools were found to have elevated lead levels in their water.

On March 31, 2015 it was reported by colonial media that 8 more schools showed elevated lead levels. Parents are now having their children tested for lead poisoning.

Most of the schools with elevated lead levels are located in African communities.

As of today, the schools have remained open and there has been no plan put forth to fix the issue of lead in the water.

Although a report has been issued showing that lead levels are elevated, there has been no report to show what the actual elevated levels are.

Three of the schools with reports of elevated lead levels are John F. Kennedy School, Newark Legacy Charter and West Side Park.

Newark Legacy has 95 percent African students and West Side Park has 83 percent African students.

Africans Charge Genocide

The poisoning of the water supply in African communities is not isolated to Flint, MI. The poisoning of Flint’s and New Jersey’s African residents and New Jersey’s is the State committing genocide against African people.

It is easy to see that the lead poisoning atrocities are happening in communities that are filled with Africans.

Lead poisoning has many health effects. It leads to behavioral and developmental problems in children.

Other effects of lead poisoning include high blood pressure, numbness or tingling in the extremities, memory loss, anemia, kidney dysfunction, etc.

The reason that we are being poisoned is because Africans have no self-determination and rely on the mercy of the white ruling class.

We must gain power so that we Africans can have control over our own lives.

The African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) is prepared to overturn this oppressive, genocidal relationship that the State has with Africans people.

The APSP is prepared to govern and African self-government will resolve public health issues such as poison in our drinking water.
