Dr. Issa Jahi Prosecuted for Resisting Oppression

[ - March 20 and 21, 2012] Delaware State University (DSU) history Professor Jahi Issa (pictured above) was arrested by DSU police during a protest on campus on February 29, 2012. Dr. Issa believes his First Amendment right to peaceably assemble was violated. DSU officials had no comment on the pending investigation. (See the video at (embedded below) and a full news report from at the third of four URL links in this article.)

An email I received about the matter stated:

Brother Jahi has been falsely accused of a number of charges for encouraging Black students to protest at Delaware State University, an HBCU that is steadily decreasing its Black faculty and Black student enrollment! See "How Black Colleges are Turning White in the Ethnic Cleansing of African Americans in the Age of Obama"


Please call Delaware State University President, Dr. Harry L. Williams and Delaware Attorney General Joseph "Beau" Biden III and ask them to reinstate Dr. Issa to his teaching position and to drop all charges against him.
Delaware State University’s President Office phone 302-465-6001
Delaware Attorney General’s Office phone 302-577-8400

Mary Neal shared this email to inform you and encourage your assistance on behalf of Dr. Issa. Malicious prosecution for resisting oppression is on the rise. Dr. Issa has a powerful supporter, the ACLU. "ACLU backs Delaware State University professor arrested during protest"

UPDATE ( Sept. 2012) reports:
Dr. Jahi Issa was formerly employed by DSU as a professor of American History and Africana Studies. On August 17, 2012, Dr. Issa was fired by the HBCU for reasons attributed to an arrest he received on campus during a rally organized by the school’s students . . . to protest the recent firings of favored black professors at DSU. After the melee, Delaware State Attorney Beau Biden’s offices filed Class A misdemeanors against the former professor. Dr. Issa is set to go to trial on October 22, 2012.

PLEASE NOTE the cyberstalkers coded the paragraph after the email text to appear in SMALL font. They also coded the link to appear gray, meaning it will not operate as a link on certain cellphones or is redirected, won't copy/paste or print, or is coded to malfunction in some way. Blessings!
