ONN – The Victor Sengbe Oakland Noose Story Does Not Explain The Effigy Fake Body Bag Lake Merritt Problem
On June 17th, a man named Victor Sengbe gave a press conference to say that the nooses around the Lake were basically no big deal. The mainstream media ABC7 let’s him get away with that crap, because as he’s droning on and on, the problem of a fake body bag hanging from a hangman noose was going on at the other side of Lake Merritt.
The mainstream media wrote: “Victor Sengbe, who is black, told KGO-TV that the ropes were part of a rigging that he and his friends used as part of a larger swing system.” In other words, because he’s black, the hangman noose is OK because he says it is. Racist idiocy that Bill Mahar reflects.
Come on! Give me a break!
Bottom line is he should not be allowed to make swings and hangman nooses and they should be outlawed at Lake Merritt. Heck, they outlaw BBQ.
So, it’s like this: as a black person I am more likely to BBQ at the Lake so that’s outlawed. Yet, a hangman noose can be made and left at the same Lake Merritt – to do what? Scare us black folks?
That’s the message sent. Don’t like it? Change the damn regulations.
UPDATE On Victor Sengbe: He Lives In San Francisco, Not Oakland, Or Is It Washington, D.C.?
Who is Victor Sengbe? Well, it’s very clear ABC 7 San Francisco does not care to look because, as they wrote, he’s “black”:
Victor Sengbe, who is black, told KGO-TV that the ropes were part of a rigging that he and his friends used as part of a larger swing system
He also told ABC-7 ““Out of the dozen and hundreds and thousands of people that walked by, no one has thought that it looked anywhere close to a noose. Folks have used it for exercise. It was really a fun addition to the park that we tried to create.” But why? Why would Victor come over from San Francisco to post “a fun addition to the park”, when he doesn’t even live in the Lake Merritt area?
KGO ABC-7 San Francisco should be taken to task for giving a race-based reason that would seem to say “nothing to see here” – because he’s black. Why ABC-7 did that is another question.
I found a Facebook page belonging to Victor Sengbe and which goes by Victor Anari Sengbe. Mr. Anari devotes his latest post to an attack on the person who reported his ropes as what they are: nooses. He wrote this:
Folks with 10,000+ followers (the reach of local tv stations) shouldn’t be able to post irresponsible shit.
This narcissistic jackass and many more on social media are irrational and mentally unhealthy-Ly stuck in the worst part of the past…
Victor Anari Sengbe claims to live in San Francisco, but has ties to Washington DC according to his Facebook entry. He has worked to promote a crypto-currency effort called Owo.World, and where the URL leads to a web presence, but not an opening website due to traffic handling code deficiencies. But there is one bottom line: no evidence in the way of photos a friends group that he even make swings with!
Something is up here.
Victor Anari Sengbe’s Linkedin page shows he’s Co-Founder of FoodHigh.club, based in Washington, D.C., not San Francisco. And where he reposted the Facebook rant here.
My preliminary conclusion is that Victor Anari Sengbe was and is deliberately trying to stir up a race-base controversy.
Sengbe’s doing the same kind of thing that others have done in setting up fake Facebook accounts to make race-based entries and seek out controversy. All to divide the country.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
