Senator Clark Jenkins District 3? For Those Who Say He Has Not Done Anything For Black Folks Who Am I To Believe? So How Do You Respond?

I will repeat myself again and again ever how many times I need to. When the District 3 was first created I supported Patricia Ferguson a black female out of Bertie County and I knew that she would probably be drawn out of the district within the following 2 years. I supported her because I felt if a black person was elected it may would be easy for another black person to replace her. Some of these same folks today not only in Edgecombe County but across the district are still playing games but they did not support Ferguson then but now they say Senator Clark Jenkins ain’t doing anything for black folks. He has been in the seat how long?

After trying to unseat Senator Jenkins several years ago when I supported Shelly Willingham and he didn’t do what we asked him to do during his campaign, that was it for me. Hell I didn’t even care that much for Willingham but was willing to try to get a black person in the seat and if Willingham had won and didn’t live up to his expectations, then I would have supported someone else after his 2 years in office. Now I will not support a black person who do not have a political machine because it will take a political machine to unseat Senator Jenkins.

But after all of these years one must use some common sense. Once you learn what is really going on then one should do differently. I have come to the conclusion that Senator Jenkins will be my Senator until he decides he will not run again.

I get tickled as hell when folks who say Senator Jenkins has not done anything for black folks. I ask them what do they mean and they can’t answer me. I ask them what have they asked him to do for them. They say nothing. I say oh well.

Now what I hear from folks and an editor of a black newspaper recently printed is that some white elected officials don’t come to a black sponsored forum. Well damn what these folks don’t understand is why do they have to come when the sponsors are supporting them anyway. Why do they want them to show up to their banquets, hell banquets are about fundraisers so if they send the money that is all that matters. Hell many black elected officials don’t show up and don’t send any money either.

Okay so now who am I to believe when they say that Senator Clark Jenkins has not done anything for black folks? Senator Jenkins has scored an “A” on the NAACP’s Legislative Report Card 2009 and 2011. Every household in his district receives a mailing stating this fact and in the mailing Representative Alma Adams Chairperson of the NC Black Legislative Caucus Foundation is quoted how he consistently fight to protect the State’s most underprivileged citizens.

So for those who say Senator Jenkins have not done anything for black folks show me your report card that you have done on him?

I am a life fully paid member of the NAACP, I live in the district and most of all I am actively engaged so I know for myself what is really going on.

Oh well like Senator Jenkins or not the report says he is doing something for black folks because I know they are underprivileged citizens.

The same could be said about Joe Pat Tolson House District 23. Tolson also received an “A” on the NAACP Report Card.

I ain’t telling you who to vote for, I am telling you who I am voting for and why.

Seeking Donations

Okay here I go again seeking donations.

I do not like asking for donations however it takes money to do what I do. I have equipment video camera and a portable dvd burner that I can make copies on the site. It is about time for a new one been had this one for several years. I have a digital photo camera and I buy 8 GB SD Cards and I do not delete pictures when they are full. Although I put them in my Kodak Gallery online I still like keeping the originals. It take gas and sometimes I may stay over night but I always try to stay at home. All of this comes out of my pocket. I sometimes have to take vacation time to be able to attend day events.

I try to capture historical moments across the state especially as it relates to politics. I try to educate folks on what is going on around them so they can be aware and informed whenever they may have to make decisions such as voting and etc. You can enjoy the videos on The DCN TV and photos from the convenience of your home.

I am so thankful for the couple of donations I have received this year. One person whom I have not heard from in years sent me a $200.00 donation just a regular citizen not a politician or other titled person. One person gave me a $100.00 donation but I presented them with a video and photos of an event I did featuring them. A candidate gave me a $25.00 donation.

Thanking you in advance.


Motivated 16-year-old enters NCCU law school – News & Observer

Response: What tickles the hell out of me is it does not matter how good you are some folks are going to speak negatively about that person. I hope this young man go on to be very, very successful and report back on his career path. These nay sayers act as if this young man will not read their comments.

One look at Ty Hobson-Powell and you may think that he is an average teenager.

He likes to play basketball and video games; he even occasionally wastes time on Facebook and Twitter.

But Ty isn’t the average 16-year-old. (More)

Princeville NC: Damn Here We Go Again, Another Warrant Taken Out On Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight Because She Attended The Town’s Regular Monthly Meeting

Sources say Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight was served with a warrant for violating the no contact order between her and Maggie Boyd because she Knight attended the regular monthly meeting on Monday April 23. I understand the court date is May 7.

I was not at the meeting so I don’t know the details. But I thought that Knight could attend the meetings as long as she do not address Boyd.

For Edwards and Aide, Another Lost Love Story – New York Times

GREENSBORO, N.C. — For hour after grueling hour, Andrew Young sat on the witness stand in a small federal courtroom here last week and stared straight ahead, never once facing the man he had once looked upon as a father.

John Edwards, the former Democratic senator who is facing 30 years in prison, leaned forward and watched. Much of his defense rests on proving that Mr. Young, the man who had held his deepest secret, is a liar. (More)
