All Of You Who Are Responsible For Creating This Animal Need To Resign

Those who are a part of creating this animal (Rev. Roosevelt Higgs) dating back years before I became a community activist in the early 90’s are responsible for his actions. I have challenged the actions of Higgs since that time. He held an office on the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee up until about 3 – 4 years ago and but some of us have been able to shut him down and he only serves a precinct vice chair in a precinct where he does not live.

It is so sad that we have elected officials whom promote criminals but then these same officials talk about what the young people are doing as it relates to criminal activity, gangs and other. Well I consider ya’ll a gang as well.

All of you who are responsible for Higgs being appointed to the Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission where he serves as chair need to resign your post effective immediately. Commissioner Viola Harris posted on my blog that she didn’t vote for him.
