Serena Williams – Tries to Move On

I hate Serena got caught up in the moment however I understand how one can get frustrated. However I say in the now that we as a black people especially professionals can not allow ourselves to make certain mistakes.

We can not allow ourselves to show our bad side to a certain level. You see sometimes we can get too far out there and then other folks will say, okay you see they are crazy, must be on drugs and etc. We can not give them that joy. You see there are some folks who wait for the golden opportunity to get something on you.

Now trust me I can act a fool but I know when and where to do such. We must practice knowing when and where no matter how bad things get.

The one thing I like about our President he always keeps his cool and if he could do it when Joe Blow called him a lie, I know this brother is good. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

From The Publisher – And Folks Talk About How Godly They Are And They Are About What Is Right

It amazes the hell out of me how some folks talk about how Godly they are and they allow certain things to happen in our community.

Take for instance I would bet my life that many politicians in Edgecombe County especially the Edgecombe County Commissioners know that a certain person do not live where he says he lives because it has been brought before them that there is no livable structure on the property. But check the records to see what boards or committees do these folks allow this person to sit on.

You know every time I think about how much confusion this person has caused and how he has disrespected all of them on more than one occasion, I just want to throw the hell up. And because I come into contact with these folks from time to time and look at them serving in certain capacities it just makes me sick as hell. Why? Because these politicians have promoted this person’s mess over the years and therefore he has been able to show his a… in the committees that he serve on because these folks put him there.

In the future I will start challenging these folks during re-election asking them will they continue to promote folks that they know ain’t bout manure but if they continue to promote them, what does that make them all about?

I understand what that rapper did on that awards show the other night when he took the mike from the person and said another person should have gotten the award. Now I am not speaking about them because I ain’t into that. My point is that I have seen folks being recognized, promoted, given awards at banquets and etc. whom in my opinion have not done a damn thing. I have even heard the folks who do the recognition talk about the person has not done anything.

Well in a recent post here that I written, “Folks It Is Not Business As Usual Anymore,” I meant just that. I am tired of people fronting.

So if you do not want to be called out when your seat is open, do not seek another term.

Former President Jimmy Carter – Rep. Wilson comments ‘based on racism’ and I totally agree

Well damn maybe I am missing something here. Wilson’s son stated, “My brothers and I were raised by our parents to respect everyone regardless of background or race." Damn the last time I checked our President is a black man so therefore obviously he do not meet the criteria. That is right because hell some folks don’t consider black folks a race of people but animals and etc. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst to President Barack Obama during a speech to Congress last week was an act "based on racism" and rooted in fears of a black president. (Read more @ The Rocky Mount Telegram)

Note: Finally after years of asking for the agenda I am finally receiving it. A little late 2 months after my last request and the day of the meeting.

From The Publisher – President Obama, They Want Him To Fail Because . . .

if he succeed this will confirm that a black man can not only be President but be successful at it. This will open the door for other blacks to run for office in the future without feeling doubtful. However in my opinion our President has already succeeded because he has not stooped to “their” level. He is so cool, calm and collected. Wow!!

These folks tickles the hell out of me talking about they are scared of what is going to happen while our President is in office as it relates to his vision.

I don’t give a damn about what anyone says, these folks are scared of our President because he is an intelligent black man. They will never support him.

But the sad part is some black folks are catching hell just because we have a black President as well. So it is not just about him but racism at it’s best.

President Obama Disrespected on the Floor – House votes to rebuke Rep. Wilson

They needed to do something. To disrespect the highest official in the USA and not be reprimanded would send the wrong message. However if this was during slavery time and a black man did this, hell he would have been or beaten almost to death. Oh well it appears there were some more options but they chose this so I will have to accept it since I don’t have a say.

So the vote shows that those other Republicans agreed with Wilson’s action and that is why he did what he did. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher
