25 African-Americans thrown out of South Carolina restaurant after a white woman complained of feeling ‘threatened’ – Daily Mail

A South Carolina man and several of his friends say they were refused service at a Wild Wing Cafe in Charleston last month and asked to leave. The reason: Michael Brown and his group of 24 friends and family members are African-American, and another customer – a white woman – complained that she felt threatened by the group.

That’s according to Brown, who was celebrating his cousin’s last day in Charleston with a night out at the Wild Wing Cafe. Brown took his beef to social media, and the story went viral.

The apparent race-based snub came after Brown and his group waited for a table for about two hours. (Source: Read more)

Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools Meeting Monday At 6:30 PM Ask Reggie Silvers And Bill Sharpe To Rescind Their Votes Forcing Superintendent Dr. Anthony Jackson To Resign

If you are available you need to be at the Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools meeting at 6:30 PM to challenge the entire board but especially Reggie Silvers and Bill Sharpe to rescind their votes forcing Dr. Anthony Jackson to resign. Why?

It is sad that the following occurred this past Monday called a damn Special Call Meeting and the outcome, “Nash-Rocky Mount Schools Votes 6-5 To Accept Dr. Anthony Jackson Superintendent Resignation” but the regularly scheduled meeting was coming up one week later anyway so why didn’t they wait?

It is my opinion and many others that this whole thing is about Nash Commissioner Robbie Davis and the following meeting “Nash County Commissioners Meeting Monday At 10 AM Ask Belfield, Richardson and Wells Why They Voted With Robbie Davis & Crew?” will take place earlier in the day.

It is funny as hell that the new board members that were sworn in on January 5, 2015 asked for the Superintendents Contract on January 9th. This makes me believe that their mission was to come on the board to get rid of the Superintendent. And that’s a problem.

Some staff have supposedly been complaining about Dr. Jackson but damn that is probably because they had a problem with change and some a problem with reporting to a black man.

This black man has come into a system and has taking the Nash-Rocky Mount School System to a whole new level financially to academically. He has put black staff in managerial roles whereby it was only around 2. Dr. Jackson’s record speaks for him and from what I have seen and heard there is nothing in his record that can be used against him to justify his forced resignation. This board is participating in adult bullying.

In October 2014 Reggie Silvers, Bill Sharpe and Wendy Wilson voted unanimously with the other board members to extend Dr. Jackson’s contract to 2019 so therefore it appears his evaluation was a good one. So since these board members and the new board members teamed up to force Dr. Jackson to resign for no reason, they need to resign or change their vote to keep Dr. Jackson.

It is a rumor that Reggie Silvers may have received some benefits in order to get his vote. Well I hope this Pastor has not sold his soul to that level however even if that is not true he has sold himself by just simply voting to get rid of the Dr. Jackson for no reason. If he had a reason he would not have went out the damn back door after the meeting on Monday evening. Be a damn man and stand up and do the right thing. This ain’t all about you and Dr. Jackson but should be about the children. I am on the side of the children because it is fact that the system is in better shape under this Superintendent.

I must apologize for Bill Sharpe being on the board. I have apologized to some folk in person and will continue to do so.

Bill Sharpe came to me about getting into politics and worried the hell out of me every day. I invited him to some community meetings about redistricting and the seats that were going to be available a couple of years ago. He used the information to run for a seat on the school board. I didn’t check the brother out because I thought he was going to do what is right but then folk begin to tell me about how he talked junk about our black POTUS. They also told me he was running for school board because he didn’t tell me and they also told me he was a Republican. I bet I will check out the next person I invite to a meeting.

It appears Sharpe has some issues because it appears he keep moving from job to job. I wonder why? LOL! I understand he is all up in the schools approaching staff unprofessionally. It appears he has too much time on his hands because it is not the board members job to be up in the school system as if that is a part of his role. I have been hearing some things 2nd handedly but then a person told me something that was not 2nd handed so makes me wonder if all of the other things I have heard is true. Time will tell.

Folk it is about the children and it appears that Dr. Anthony Jackson has shown himself approved by his professionalism and that is why the good black, good white folk and other need to come together and request that the Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools to do the right thing and that is to change their votes on his forced resignation. It can be done because “Grimesey reinstated as Moore County superintendent.”

This is about race, integrity and most of all messing with the children’s education and it must stop! The process begins Monday at 6:30 PM at the Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools 930 Eastern Avenue Nashville, NC 27856. If you would like to speak you need to call to the Central Office by 12 Noon to sign up. Join the Rocky Mount Ministerial Alliance as they and others will be there in support of Dr. Jackson.

Nash County Commissioners Meeting Monday At 10 AM Ask Belfield, Richardson and Wells Why They Voted With Robbie Davis & Crew?

If you are available you need to be at the Nash County Commissioner’s meeting to ask Fred Belfield Chair, Lou Richardson and Mary Wells why did they change their votes to go along with Robbie Davis and crew about the mess with the school split. See the following article, Nash County board issues ultimatum on schools split – Rocky Mount Telegram.” However don’t leave out the other board members ask them to resign their post for starting this mess. It is time for the bullying to stop because this is adult bullying. Leave the children alone.

One of the problems Davis wants the Superintendent gone is because he has challenged his work. See the following article and you can see what is going on “Officials spar over school’s leak problem.”

It is somewhat strange the new board members came on board on January 5th and asked to see the Superintendent’s contract on January 9th.

Folk need to go to this board and ask Robbie Davis to resign his post and if Belfield, Richardson and Wells don’t speak out against Davis mess they need to resign as well.

This is about race, integrity and most of all messing with the children’s education and it must stop! The process begins Monday at 10 AM Claude Mayo, Jr. Administration Building
Frederick B. Cooper Commissioners Room – 3rd Floor 120 W. Washington St. Nashville, NC 27856. Be there!

Alert: Save Our School Superintendent Dr. Anthony Jackson Forced To Resign


Note: If you would like to speak during the Public Comments in support of Dr. Jackson you need to call to the Nash-Rocky Mount Schools  Central Office by 12 noon on Monday.

Homegoing Celebration For Attorney Sheria Y. Reid Raleigh NC Formerly Of Wilson NC

My condolences goes out to the entire family of the late Attorney Sheria Y. Reid Raleigh NC.

Wow I missed the email message from the funeral home on Thursday and when I seen it on N Carnell Robinson Facebook Page today I was speechless. I had to go to Sheria’s Facebook Page to see if it was my friend.

I met Sheria back in the 90’s while attending meetings about Un-Fair Testing and other issues pertaining to the school system.

During Sheria’s time as the Director of The Education and Law Project at the NC Justice Center I received certificates of graduation for participating in the yearly (PESP) Parent Education Studies Program through the NC Justice and Community Development Center Education Leadership Institute at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill NC on June 14, 2002 and again on May 30, 2003 at the Holiday Inn Gateway Center in Rocky Mount NC.

Over the years I kept in touch with Sheria and when I found her on Facebook we have been very close because I love reading her post. She was a very professional and carrying person. Many times I sent her personal messages about issues and things I was dealing with here in Edgecombe County and she would take the time out to respond to me. What I loved about her was she was going to give you the straight up truth whether you liked it or not. Well that was no problem for me because that is the only way I want a friend to respond, if not then one is not a real friend. Wow! What am I going to do now?

The following song reminds me of Sheria.

Script.: Read Eccles. 3 and know, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”

Song: I Give Myself Away – William McDowell

I’m a Black Southerner Who’s Seen Racism All My Life. Why Do I Stay Silent? – Politico Magazine

Blacks in the South, Carlton told me, are submissive. He was a young African-American man from Kansas City. We were sitting in a classroom in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A teacher friend of mine had asked me to mentor him and another of her high school students.

Blacks in the South are submissive.

It rolled off his tongue, not as indictment, but as description.

His family sent him “down South” for that very reason, to get him away from, Carlton said, the kind of black people who stand up for themselves and firmly against injustice—personal and otherwise—the kind of black people he had been getting in trouble with as they fought back … against whatever it was they were fighting, something he couldn’t quite explain.
