Enough Is Enough! Rocky Mount City Council Meetings

Another prime example of how Special Cs that think it is about White Privilege attended the council meeting attacking Andre and Reuben and then when they respond, these folk play victim.

These Special Cs come to meeting after meeting in the attack mode trying to discredit Andre and Reuben trying to get black folk to vote them out. They want to tell black folk who to vote for on those pages that they got me blocked from but they are talking about me there as well. Why? Because I am calling them out on my page and in the Telegram.
But then I have to respond to some black folk like
Grandmaz House, Gwen Wilkins and some others who come for me because I do what I do. Hell I do I what I do and you do what you do. I am going to continue to do what I do.

When are black folk going to say enough is enough and go to the meetings and speak like the Special Cs showing support for Andre and Reuben and then the entire council.
I understand some black folk are scared that they will be retaliated against in their workplace and some going after their children but I just don’t understand why black retired and folk that own their own businesses are silent.

The Real Definition Of A Special C

Several folk have told me to not tell what my definition of a Special C is. But the thrill is gone and I need to go ahead and tell it so I can move on to something new because that saying has gotten old but I will continue to use it forever.

I remember when I 1st heard Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II say Racist White Folk and Safe Negroes I knew I had to use it. These terms are used because I am not talking about all white folk and all black folk. I knew it would agitate those folk who felt guilty. What tickles me is how some folk took on the title saying I was talking about them when they were not even in the conversation. But most of all, I don’t know them and they don’t know me.

When I heard Steve Harvey say Ignant I knew I had to use it. I knew folk would come after me saying I can’t spell. I knew it would agitate the hell out of them.

But then after Ignant Racist White Folk began to call me things for example most recent a Shaved M. I have not thought anything about it because I never claimed it because I know who I am and whose I am so I have never questioned what a Shaved M is. Several folk black and white told me the M stands for Monkey. Actually when I mentioned it to Lindell John Kay the Rocky Mount Telegram Reporter he said it was Monkey. I asked LJK what did he really thing a Special C is. He said a Special Caucasian.

It has been interesting to see how some white folk took the C and made it what they wanted it to be. It has been interesting to see how black folk especially those who know me to go along with the white folk.

What was more interesting is how folk that don’t know me put themselves in my conversations when I used Special C saying I was talking about them when I don’t know them and never heard of them.

Folk on this day Monday April 22, 2019 my official definition of a Special C is a Special Caucasian.

‘Grown and Sexy’ is all about marketing by Patsy Pridgen – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator’s response: Help me to understand. How do you get to pick and choose the week someone want to have an event at the Event Center? Wow! started out with a good message but for me ended up on a negative note to still justify why don’t want to even have it anytime. If that week was really the issue, then why say, “Maybe the new Event Center manager can determine the suitability of events to come.” I just don’t get it black folk can’t do anything without white folk approval. You worried about the wrong thing it ain’t the name of the event that you one need to be concerned about.

As a Rocky Mount resident, I was more than a little disturbed to see the name of the party booked for Good Friday at the Rocky Mount Event Center: Grown and Sexy.

Grown and Sexy? This didn’t sound like a wholesome sporting event or a family-friendly concert. Were my city tax dollars helping to fund a venue for an R-rated party better suited for a nightclub?

I decided to find out more about this gig and Googled “Grown and Sexy.” I found the advertisement for the Good Friday party —more about that in a minute — but I also learned that the phrase “Grown and Sexy” was not coined for this particular happening at the Rocky Mount Event Center.

To begin with, according to Urban Dictionary, Grown and Sexy is a dress code meaning “don’t even think of showing up at my function in baggy jeans, Air Jordans, platinum chains, bandanas and XXX white T-shirts.”

I’ve heard of dressy casual and country club casual, semi-formal and formal. I guess I can now add Grown and Sexy to my list. (Read more)

Former Councilwoman, Former Rep. Angela Bryant Email To Rocky Mount City Manager About The Diversity At Event Center Opening And Early Offerings

I found the following email that was shared with me to be quite interesting coming from Angela Bryant for several reasons. But later on yesterday I seen it posted on Fighting Crime.

Reason 1 I found it interesting who the recipients were. None of these folk more than likely had nothing to do with the set up for this. I thought that someone was hired to do marketing so I would think the concerns should be directed to. However I know the marketing person/s will be seeking events to come, I would think that those who want to have an event there would be contacting the Event Center to book the facility.

Buried HUD report cited fiscal woes – Rocky Mount Telegram

A 2016 HUD consultant report swept under the rug by local officials at the time details how the city has been propping up the Rocky Mount-Edgecombe Community Development Corp.

Commissioned by the city, the report is a bleak assessment of the city’s Community Housing Development Organization funds known as CHDO. Conducted by the Minnesota Housing Partnership, the report was handed over to then-City Manager Charles Penny and the City Council.

After that, the report never saw the light of day.

The Telegram obtained the report from a whistleblower who also turned it over to State Auditor Beth Wood.

CDC Executive Director Joyce Dickens — recently appointed by Gov. Roy Cooper to the state’s Rural Infrastructure Authority — said she wasn’t given the report in 2016 and when the Telegram provided it to her last week, it was the first time she saw it. (Read more)

Councilman backs housing over parking – Rocky Mount Telegram

Rocky Mount Councilman Reuben Blackwell said he supports housing development on Tarboro Street and if he misspoke about knowledge of parking plans at the site, he’s only human.

Blackwell said in a meeting last week that he was unaware of plans to break a proposed agreement with Edgecombe Community College on downtown parking versus a housing project; but the real issue is the need for such housing.

“I stand by my position, my vote and my constituents on that location as the best site for this affordable, workforce housing development to help build the momentum of a beautiful, vibrant, diverse and economically beneficial downtown Rocky Mount that everyone can enjoy,” said Blackwell, who answered Telegram questions on the matter from Thursday on Friday morning after presstime for a report in today’s edition.
