Wilson NC – Replace Evans with an African-American judge

The 7th Judicial Bar met last week and 3 names were chosen to be presented to Governor Perdue. The bar chose Anthony Brown black male, (got the most votes), Sharon Sprinkle white female, and Millicent Graves black female. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

We would like to thank Gov. Perdue for appointing Robert Evans as the 7th Judicial District’s district attorney. His appointment signified the beginning of a new era of diversity and hope for our state and for justice in eastern North Carolina. We believe that he will serve our district with dignity, fairness and skill. (The Wilson Times)

My comments submitted to The Wilson Times.

These are some ignant comments. To compare the NAACP to the KKK is just funny as hell.

If all of the offices were diverse there would be no demands or anything to talk about. But since there is only one black D.A. and at the moment no black judge since Robert Evans is now the D.A. Oh well some folks want to divert from the real truth.
