Jersey City School Board of Education trustee Joan Terrell Paige made the comments on someone else's Facebook page in response to an article about a meeting of faith and religious leaders pledging to do more to fight hate in Jersey City and to bring clashing cultures together.

"Are we brave enough to explore the answer to their message? Are we brave enough to stop the assault on the black communities of America."
