Will Felix Arroyo champion this cause for African-Americans?
As many of you are aware Councillor Felix Arroyo led the charge in response to the state of Arizona’s draconian immigration policies by holding a hearing and successfully getting the City of Boston to divest from all financial dealings with Arizona.
The Blackstonian is calling on At-Large Boston City Councillor Felix Arroyo, current candidate for the Mayor of Boston to mount exactly the same campaign calling for the City of Boston to divest from all financial dealings with the state of Florida in response to the Not Guilty verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin.
I am sure that the three African-American Councillors, Pressley, Yancey and Jackson will all be behind this idea, but in my view this a test for Arroyo to see if he will champion an issue on behalf of the Black Community with the same fervor that he addressed the anti-immigration policies that primarily target Latino’s.
We eagerly await his response.
If you think this is a good idea please call his office or email and tell him:
