Three Eastern N.C. NAACP presidents, Yolanda Thigpen, left, Edgecombe County; Andre Knight, Rocky Mount Branch; and Alonzo Braggs, Wilson County; along with Reuben Blackwell, from the N.C. State office of the NAACP, held a press conference on the steps of the Tarboro courthouse to ask Gov. Perdue to have a qualified African-American fill the position of D.A. of the seventh district. (Wilson Times)
What tickles the hell out of me is some of the ignant twisted comments trying to make it appear that the NAACP want just a black and not a qualified black. In my opinion the objective is that if a qualified black puts his her name in the hat then the NAACP want the Governor to not just appoint another white person because of the good ole boy system. But this is too heavy for folks to comprehend because all they want to do is go on the attack mode.
I dare any of these ignant posters to address the ratio make up of the District Attorney Offices in Edgecombe, Nash and Wilson Counties.
