Mostly youths at the Hoboken Maxwell Park BLM protest

The sight at Maxwell Park is one of mostly white youths numbering around 200 and growing as the Black Lives Matter protest arranged by Rutgers students of allies4justice.

There's not a lot of social distancing going on. On the upside, these youths are in the category of those most statistically safe from acquiring and suffering from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus.

Plenty of Hoboken Police are on the scene and although rain is threatening in the forecast, the rally is now proposed to move down Sinatra Drive to Pier A and away from Washington St. where many storefronts are boarded up.

Another spirited group of two-dozen clad in mostly black is issuing Al Sharpton type sloganeering "No Justice, No Peace" heading down 11th street to join the others at Maxwell Place.

Social distancing or not, you can probably anticipate Mayor Ravi Bhalla to make a speech if the tame youths are the only ones on the scene when the protest arrives at Pier A. He's already talking to press at Maxwell Place.
