Bronx, NY (PRWEB) September 6, 2005
Many African Americans are starting to ask, ÂIf New Orleans had been a predominately white city, would so many have died?Â According to Abdul Malik, the Publisher of Bronx Village Publishers says, ÂThatÂs a nice way of putting it.Â Abdul Malik claims thereÂs a lot going on that the news is not reporting.
ÂI have one relative who claims as he and his girl friend were struggling to get to safety, a Coast Guard boat came by. ÂThey floated by us yelling get out of the water, I was so shocked, I thought they had come to rescue us,Â he said. I was so happy he was alive I didnÂt have time to be angry yet. But as the crisis wore on, my emotions started swinging.Â
When Abdul Malik tried to send money to this same relative via Western Union it took twelve calls. ÂI could not believe this, I called them dozen times from work, then they called my home to verify who I was. Finally after answering four trick questions they agreed to transfer the money. I have used this service before, they have my name and credit card information on file, so why did I go through this?Â Abdul Malik received three different answers from Western Union. ÂAt first I was told this was because there had been an unusually high number of transfers in the last few days. I guess they hadnÂt heard about the hurricane. The second answer I got was my name, Abdul Malik, was on the Federal GovernmentÂs watch list. The last answer I received claims the recipients name was on some kind of fraud watch list, and that the first two people didnÂt know what they were talking about.
ÂThe first book I published, ÂBlack PowerÂ (ISBN 0975320505) by Michael Alan Townsend looks almost prophetic now. For more information contact: Abdul Malik at (646) 283-0980 P.O. Box 1021, Bronx, NY 10466; Books@bronxvillage.com
