Asere Bello (also known as Awo_ifatade) – Brooklyn Activist, Organizer, Housing Coordinator, Program Director, Baba, and Fake #HotepAlafia — Why does it matter? It matters because of his role in the community.
Asere brought a young woman home from his program at his job at Brooklyn Justice Corp and tried to move her into the house. (This was right after he told me a good friend of mine ((an older woman who was financially independent)) could not move in because he was not renting out the room.
Shortly after, he asked me about another young woman, whom I thought was a friend. He asked if she still needed a place to live. Long story short, she moved and things go weird — And that’s why we are here.
Instead of being taken seriously about what I saw was going on, I was called jealous and bitter.
