So It Is Personal?

So will longtime Tarboro Town Manager Sam Nobles be leaving?

I can’t answer that question but it appears that it may be a possibility.

See what was reported in The Daily Southerner.

So will Tiger Woods tell what really happened? I don’t know but I feel it will come out and soon.

See what they are saying here.

If the rumor is true then it will be a sad day for another brother. Money, sex and drugs are 3 major downfalls so why would any man in his right mind do something like this knowing it will be headline news?

NAACP TO FILE FEDERAL TITLE VI COMPLAINT

AGAINST WAYNE COUNTY (NC) PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM

WHO:          STATE NAACP PRESIDENT, REV. DR. WILLIAM J. BARBER, II, ATTY. AL MCSURELY, ATTY. IRV JOYNER, LEGAL REDRESS CHAIR, MS. SYLVIA BARNES, GOLDSBORO-WAYNE NAACP BRANCH IN CONJUNCTION WITH NATIONAL NAACP LEGAL DEPARTMENT

WHAT:        PRESS CONFERENCE ANNOUNCING TITLE VI COMPLAINT

WHEN:        TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2009 AT 9:00 AM

WHERE:     SIDEWALK, NC DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION

301 NORTH WILMINGTON STREET, RALEIGH, NC  27601

NAACP will file a federal Title VI Complaint on behalf of all children assigned to the Wayne County Public School System (Goldsboro, NC) who are deprived of a constitutional education by the policies and practices that adversely impact particularly African American and other students of color.  Specifically, the practices complained of within the complaint have and, if not reversed, will continue to result in:

  • Lower graduation rates for African Americans and other students of color;
  • Higher drop out rates for African Americans and other students of color;
  • Higher suspension rates for African Americans and other students of color;
  • More and meaner discipline for African Americans and other students of color;
  • Lower grade point averages for African Americans and other students of color;
  • Lower college entrance rates for African Americans and other students of color;
  • Lower college ambition rates for African Americans and other students of color;
  • Lower gifted and talented participation by African Americans and other students of color;
  • Higher placement of students of color in “special” self-contained classrooms; and
  • And other well-recognized indices of structural and individual racially discriminatory school practices.

According to State President, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, “We are filing this complaint because in 2009—55 years after Brown v Board of  Education—the Wayne County Public School System has not only had a high school (Goldsboro High School) cited as failing to meet the standards of our [state] constitution,  but is operating an attendance district that is virtually 100% resegregated, failing to provide adequate education to the students therein and we believe is in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964’s Title VI.”

NAACP is filing the complaint simultaneously with the Office of Civil Rights of the United States Department of Education, and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice on the 54TH Anniversary of Rosa Park’s challenge to Jim Crow when she refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama that led to the modern day civil rights movement.

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination by government agencies that receive federal funding.  If any agency is found in violation, it can lose its federal funding.

Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, conducting voter mobilization and monitoring equal opportunity in the public and private sectors.  For more information, call the State Office at 866-626-2227 or e-mail us at execdirnaacpnc@gmail.com.  ###

2010 Is Approaching, What Role Will You Play?

We as a black people must come together, work together and be about the business of moving our communities forward. Hell we do not have to like each other but damn let’s do what is best for the community at-large. But we can not do that if we continue to do the same things. We talk a good game but year after year we see the same results. And then we say it will take some time to get there.

Hell I have been dealing with some folks since the early 90’s and damn they ain’t there yet. So how can we move forward when those around us continue to hold us just where we are. And the sad thing we think we are doing something but look at the news daily and see what is going on right in our communities. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of lies and those who got theirs and don’t give a damn about others. But then their children end up out there and they don’t understand why.

Oh well 2010 is approaching. What role will you play?

I Want To See Your Face In The Place In 2010

I will be going to work and back home working on my changes to Dancy Communications Network. I am suppose to be off the first week of January 2010 so I will begin the new year attending the Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners meeting and any other meetings that may take place that week. I plan to attend County Commissioners meetings, Board of Education, Board of Elections and Pinetops Town Hall meetings  to name a few regularly beginning in 2010.

I am quite sure there will be many campaign functions next year because 2010 will be a major election year.
