Send All Donations To The DCN News Blog Online TV Through Cash App And Other

I do what I do out of pocket attending meetings videoing and taking photos making them public for folk who do not attend for whatever reason. It takes funds to do what I do.

I video a variety of things from meetings, banquets, sporting events, funerals and other. I post my videos on YouTube where you can access them at anytime that is convenient for you.

I also take photos and post them on my Facebook page and make them available for others to see. If someone do not have a Facebook page they can still view the photos.

It takes funds to travel places and then it takes funds for equipment.

You have 3 options that you can send donations, Cash App, PayPal or send via USPS.

I have a Cash App  and a PayPal account that you can send money from your phone.

Also you can send donations to: Curmilus Dancy II P.O. Box 1391 Pinetops, NC 27864.

Thanking you in advance.

Samuel Battle Telling History I Meant His Story About Rocky Mount NC Going After Andre Knight & Reuben Blackwell

imageThe Political Agitator’s response: When you have been actively engaged in politics you know the truth behind folk telling history I mean his story. I joined Black Workers for Justice in Rocky Mount that was located adjacent to where the Event Center is located in 1988. I joined the Rocky Mount NAACP in 1992. I know the real history about what is being told here. Not only do I know but I was a part of the history speaking out.

Dr. King Park was birthed on Virginia Ave in the late 90’s. The location used to be a landfill and it has not been a secret. The majority White City Council approved this location over suggested other sites .

Rev. Thomas L. Walker, several black preachers and leaders, Kel Landis and all the Chamber leaders worked with the late great Mayor Fred Turnage and the majority City Council. They raised private money to pay for the MLK Park. The citizens, NAACP, Black Workers For Justice and others spoke out against it going on Virginia Ave.

Unity Cemetery, Councilmen Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell tried to get the City to take ownership of the land in the early 2000’s so they could incorporate it into City maintained property. Jerry Fisher, Mae Parker and ALL THE WHITE FOLKS and a large number of black folks said NO! That crew hauled in heavy equipment and began Saturday mornings cemetery clean up. But because of years of the cemetery being neglected it had gown out of control and it was hard to clean up. It was difficult to get the heavy equipment in to clean up the cemetery because it would damage the graves. The clean up crew slowly faded away.

We fought that battle for several months until we said forget it! Then the fight became about housing for living people. I say we because I have been actively engaged in Rocky Mount City Government longer than any of the members on the Council and Reuben Blackwell is the longest member on the council today. He was appointed in 1999 and elected in 2000. Blackwell was appointed to replace Donald Armstrong who transitioned before his term expired and it was he, Attorney Lamont Wiggins and Attorney Angela Bryant.

It is a damn shame that some folk want to attempt to discredit the Black Majority City Council when they don’t know the real history.

So where was this guy during the time in history as it relates to both the MLK Park and Unity Cemetery that he is trying to tell. Obviously he was not around and since he was not he ought to ask somebody instead of trying to tell history I mean his story. (Click On Photo To Watch Video)

Question: Facebook Jail Has It Been Discontinued Because I Have Not Been There Lately?

I am trying to see something!

Have y’all noticed I have not been in Facebook Jail in several months?

Well them Special Cs  in Rocky Mount must have gotten tired of reporting me. LMBAO!

They have been trying to discredit me since the 90’s.

Well you see when you are a Professional you know how to deal with Ignant Racist White Folk.

They got me blocked off their racist pages like Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens, Fighting Crime and others but since my Blog and Social Media pages are Public, they Troll my pages to see what I am saying. They are like them Russian Spies. Oh they may just be working with them.

Wow! They gone read this and do a campaign now to get me put in Facebook Jail.

Racial Hatred Is Different Today Because Of The Election Process, You Better Vote!

As I watch moments in history on UNC-TV almost weekly, it reminds me of what is going on today, same thing but it is being done in a different way. The racists are more reserved today where back then they didn’t give a damn. But what they recognize and understand today is that Black folk are in decision making roles when White folk used to be able to carry out mess and had folk in place to sign off on it.

When I look at Ignant Racist White Folk and their racist mentality, I say you may want to go back to the old days but it will not happen because Black Folk are at the table now when we used to be only on the table.

When I look at Ignant Safe Negro Black Folk today that think that the Black Vote Don’t Matter, I run away from them fools.

I ain’t wasting my time arguing and debating fools. When you see a fool let them be a fool. Damn fools are ignant to history, the civil rights movement and all things Black Folk. I don’t argue, debate nor hate, I agitate with responding with trues.

Because of the election process Black folk can get elected. They can sit to the table and be a part of the policy and procedure making. See this is why some White folk don’t want to give up the power and/or want Black folk at the table because they lose their power and Black uncover the mess they have been doing over the years blocking progress for Black Folk and other.

Because I have knowledge some folk are mad with me because I ain’t mad with them for being mad at me. I ain’t mad with nobody. I know what I need to do and that is what I have been doing and doing what I do today.

Folk you better vote!

Now for you Ignant Safe Negro Black Folk who continue to help push Ignant Racist White Folk agenda, you can act like you have arrived but I know that to them you are just a NIGGER! Hell yeah I said it! Now Run Tell That!

Now Print That! LBJ

Five key races likely to determine Senate control

The fight for a majority in the chamber is most likely to be decided in Colorado, Arizona, Maine, North Carolina and Iowa. And there may be some surprises.

WASHINGTON — Democrats are favored by independent forecasters to win the presidency and keep the House majority in the election, but polls show the battle for Senate control is closer.

Democrats have 47 seats and are widely projected to lose a seat in deep-red Alabama that they managed to capture in 2017. That means they’ll need to pick up five seats to win a majority — or four to secure control if Joe Biden captures the presidency. There are about a dozen Republican-held seats considered potential pickups for Democrats.

The stakes are high. The party that controls the Senate will have power over the next president’s legislative agenda, Cabinet officials and judicial appointments.

Here are five races that are likely to decide which party holds that power. (Read more)

I Keep Hearing How Woke The Millennials Are So Please Tell Me About It

First of all I support Millennials. I dedicated my life in the early 90’s to be a voice for young folk especially in the school system when parents and some others were afraid to speak up for themselves. I had no child in the Edgecombe County Public Schools system when I first became active in community and political advocacy but I attended meetings challenging the system. Many folk get involved when it is something in it for them. I got involved to be a voice for others.

Some folk said they hate to see when I had a child in the system. I said I am going to fight even more because I would refuse to allow folk to treat my children any kind of way. Trust me they came for me via my children but I was READY! I had to fight he powers that be but I dealt with them and many times by myself.

My oldest daughter Nashonda Lavette Dancy who changed her last name to Sherrod her mother’s husband last name because they were trying to keep me from seeing her so they moved to Waldorf Maryland Prince George County around 4 hours away. I was involved in her schooling by keeping in touch with her school. I also visited her school. It was there I learned that they had a student as an ex officio member on their school board and I shared that with Edgecombe County Schools. They never did advocate for that.

My youngest daughter India Matita Dancy was in school in New Bern Craven County until 1997. New Bern is around 1 hour 30 minutes away from Pinetops and I was very active in her schooling going down during the day before going to work on 2nd shift in Rocky Mount and taking vacation time when needed. In 1997 India began attending G.W. Carver Elementary School in Pinetops NC and when Curmilus Dancy III (C.J.) began attending G.W. Carver Elementary School around 2004 I was very, very active in their schooling as they attended South Edgecombe Middle School and SouthWest Edgecombe High School.

Although my oldest daughter’s mother accomplished her mission to keep me from my daughter I am proud of her because she went on to college and doing some great things. My youngest daughter went to college and still going and doing great as well. My baby boy just finished Community College with one degree and have a couple of more hours that can receive a 2nd degree.

I remember the days when I used to go to meetings especially the NAACP meetings taking my daughters in the early 90’s. I had a briefcase and I had them some children briefcases that I found at Big Lots.

A lot of folk be it Millennials and/or older folk they read the newspaper, social media and listen to certain folk and think they are woke. But when you see it and hear it for yourself coming from the folk at the table, that makes all the difference.

I know about Edgecombe County Politics, who are actively engaged and who are not.

If you are a Millennial tell me about what makes you woke. Polices and procedures are made at the table. Have you been at the table and/or in the room!

Who have inspired you to get involved?

Have you been to a City Council Meeting?

Have you been to a County Commissioner Meeting?

Have you been to a School Board Meeting?

Do you know who your elected officials are?

Have you been to a Community Meeting?

Have you been to a NAACP Meeting?

What other meetings that I didn’t mention have you gone to?

I am willing to work with folk. The more folk that come out and can show me they are woke the less I have to do.

I’ll wait!

Note: I keep hearing so much about Millennials and being Woke. I am concerned!

This Is Good Right Here About Donald John Covid Drama Trump

Rhonda L. Krebs

Urgent Message from Chicken Little:

Things stuck in my craw…

Right now, the number one thing is the way Donald J. Trump proclaimed himself to be the best POTUS since Abraham Lincoln in terms of what any President has done for the African American citizens of the United States of America.

I’m like, “Really? What exactly have you done that equals John F. Kennedy putting his life on the line by submitting a bill (H.R. 7152) to Congress… a bill that was later signed into law by Lyndon Baines Johnson as The Civil Rights Act of 1964?”

Seriously- can any Trump supporter spell out specifically and unequivocally what President Trump has done for all minorities including African Americans that outshines what Kennedy and Johnson achieved in terms of plucking feathers off Jim Crow?

https://www.nps.gov/articles/civil-rights-act.htm

Number Two- that would be the way our current hot mess in the White House keeps trying to pin his case of Covid 19 on the Meet & Greet he had with Gold Star Families- everybody wanting to hug and kiss on him without anyone wearing masks- as if Trump should be seen as some sort of hero for glad handing and swapping spit spray with families in mourning just to bolster his poll numbers with military families. Or maybe that is the smoke and mirror meant to divert attention away from the Super Spreader event held in the White House side yard to announce his nomination of Miz Amy to replace the notorious RGB. Who knows? Seriously- who knows?!?

Show me the numbers- how many of those Gold Star Mourners are down with the Covid? Have any of them died? What happened in their communities when they went back to their home towns? Should I boo and hiss at the thought of those Gold Star Families selfishly wanting to paw all over the real Trumpy Bear and giving him the Covid knowing he was running for re-election and might be our last, best hope for triumphing over the China Virus (according to Trumpy Bear)? I’m just so confused!

Third thing stuck in my craw- President Trump harping on what Joe Biden did not get done as Obama’s Vice President. Ummm Is that how it works now- the Vice President is held responsible for what the actual President does or does not accomplish? Does this mean we should credit or discredit Mike Pence in all future elections based on DJT’s record as POTUS”? Again- very confusing.

The fourth and final thing stuck in my craw tonight…

The way Donald Trump’s Presidency keeps reminding me of the season he had Gary Busey on “Celebrity Apprentice”- my perception of our collective reality for the past four years has been as if DJT is being played by Gary Busy and the task overwhelming his limited abilities is being the freakin’ President of the United States! Ronald Reagan I understood- he knew how to play the role of President even if I did not agree with many of his policies… but how in the hell did we end up with a post-motorcycle crash Gary Busey for President?

If anyone could un-riddle all of that for me in a coherent and convincing manner prior to Election Day; I’d appreciate it. I am, after all- among those elusive “Unaffiliated Voters” both Democrats and Republicans keep trying to pin down with opinion polls.

Been Blogging since 2005 I didn’t just get involved in 2020. Been an Active and Engaged Black Man.

This is why I can challenge these folk who are speaking out as if they have figured something out.

Challenge me about Politics, People and etc.

Ready!

You better come correct! Because you gone be the one mad! I have put in the work and time.

I know what I know!

Democrats & Republicans What I Have Seen Since I Have Been Active

The problem with Democrats is that some Whites run as Democrats because like Edgecombe County the Democrats are the majority so to get in act like you are a Democrat. And you have Democrats that vote Republican. How could a state with more Democrats continue to re-elect the likes of Jesse Helms until he died. This has been going on for years look at Jesse Helms. We have to look at who these folk are and vote them out.

Black folk who support the Democrat Republicans we need to call them out.

In Edgecombe County when a newly created Senate District 3 was created years ago for a Black person some Black folk supported a White candidate because he was giving monies to Black leaders to support him. I spoke out against it and said when you put him in you will create a seat for him to be there for years to come. Yep! That is what happened. Finally got him out about a couple of years ago.

And then we have some Blacks who are just in the seat to get the benefits for themselves. Get to go on retreats and training and bring ab so damn lute ly nothing back to help the local communities. They use it as a paid vacation yearly for them and it don’t take much money to carry their spouse or significant others. They don’t speak out on anything.

When we can get enough folk to speak out publicly about these folk and not talk about them behind closed doors, maybe we will see some changes.

I hold folk accountable because I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent friends.

I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.

I have been actively engaged in community and political politics since the late 80’s and I stand behind what I say and do and do it publicly and write open letter to those whom I am calling out so it will be documented.

Strolls To the Polls Saturday October 31, 2020 12 Noon

imageLet’s get excited about voting! This is a non-partisan event. The only thing being promoted is the importance of voting! This is a community event open to ALL! If you are in a Divine 9 organization, please wear your letters (colors) and EVERYONE please wear your MASKS! See you Saturday!

Big Ten’s first all-Black officiating crew works Gophers/Michigan game

The Political Agitator’s response: I wonder would this had happened if it had not been for the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter Movement?

All 12 members of the crew, including one woman, were Black, with Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren stressing the importance of equality and equity. 

The officials selected for the Gophers-Michigan game Saturday made history as the first All-Black officiating crew for a Big Ten football game, according to the conference.

The crew consisted of 11 men and one woman with Larry Smith (referee), Edward Feaster (Umpire), William McKoy (head line judge), Dorsey Skinner (line judge), Robert Smith Jr. (back judge), Lamont Smith (field judge), Lashell Nelson (side judge), Gregory Nelson (center judge), Calvin Diggs (alternate), James Robinson (replay official), Terry Young (communicator) and Darrel Leftwich (timer).

They posed for a picture at TCF Bank Stadium’s midfield with Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren.

“The principles of equality and equity are very important to me personally and to the Big Ten Conference,” Warren said in a statement. “Big Ten football has been around since 1896, but tonight marks the first time that an all-African American football officiating crew has led a game. It is a special opening weekend for Big Ten football and we are honored by all 14 of our member institutions and their student-led social justice initiatives, as well as our conference-wide ‘United As One” campaign.’” (Read more)

Millennials You Need To Make It Known You Are Interested And Go To The Table

Millennials need to make it known they are interested.

They need to attend meetings and seek to understand the process.

You can’t wait on others to come to you, you need to go to the table. You can’t change things from just being woke if you are not at the table where policies and procedures are being made.

Millennials you have to put in the work and time.

I support you Millennials but I do not support those who are not trying to put in the work but just sitting back waiting talking about the elected officials and community leaders need to come to them, need to mentor them and other. How do they know you are interested?

I’ll wait! I can because I have been actively engaged since the 80’s and have put in the work and time. I know what it takes while some folk think they know because they say they are woke. I will challenge you on how woke you are because I have not seen you at any governmental meetings, school board meetings, city council meetings, community meetings and other. Oh if you were there and I was there you would be in my videos and photos. If you spoke at the meetings it is documented in the minutes.

The moment you recognize and understand that if you ain’t at the table you are on the table the better off you will be.

Let’s go!
