More from City Hall: Bivens on being a “victim of working while black”

Bobby Bivens, president of the Stockton branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, is at the podium. “We believe that he has been unjustly terminated,” he said of Johnny Ford. “He has become another victim of working while black in the city of Stockton.”

Bivens said other such victims are Kenny Wilbon, David Cole and Natalie Rencher.

Racism is pervasive on the Second Floor, Bivens said.

He said, “Mr. Palmer is not a fair man.” Bivens said, “I’m sure whatever it is that he’s accused of doing,” everyone else in City Hall has done, too.

Bivens said, “We are looking for justice … We are looking for you all to do what is right.”

He said, “We are prepared and want the community to come here every Tuesday night and tie up the meetings,” disrupting city business until Ford is reinstated.
