I find your article, “Rocky Mount groups call for end to violence” quite interesting because one again unnecessary attention is being focused toward Andre Knight, Mayor Pro-tem Rocky Mount City Council, President Rocky Mount NAACP and yes he is a minister.
I didn’t know that that side of Rocky Mount was considered South Rocky Mount, thought that was on the Nash side.
So John how did you come to that conclusion Rev. Andre Knight was dressed as a minister but you didn’t put Rev. in front of his name? But do you always reference folks who wear a white collar as a minister and if you do, do you specify it like you did Knight in this article? Since you say dressed as a minister, wouldn’t that leave the impression that he is not a minister for those who do not know that he is a minister since you didn’t specify he is. Just my ignant questions for today.
Dang! Talk about Knight but didn’t show a picture of him in his minister outfit since you mentioned how he was dressed. SMDH!
So are you saying Knight was speaking from a minister’s standpoint on yesterday. Better yet, just what in the hell were you trying to say? Who was the message about his attire for, Ignant Racist Ass White Folks and/or Ignant Racist Ass Safe Negroes?
It is a damn shame folks pay to read the paper and allow them to single out our black leaders in code fashions. You see some folks will read this article and will not get the same message that I got. However I know I ain’t the only one that got the message because I received a call from someone telling me about it before I read it. isecr
By the way John no need to respond. I have come to the conclusion that this mentality trying to discredit Knight is systematic and “they” think it is okay since other black leaders and grassroots folks ain’t saying anything when these types of articles. So this is why I am going to educate others on what is really going on whether they like it or not. I will not leave it up to the local media, IRWFs and IRSNs to define my leaders. I refuse to allow the local media, IRWFs and IRSNs to put those who they want to be my leader in the spotlight while these leaders are playing it safe and helping their cause.
What is the damn difference in black on black murder and the media and some blacks trying to discredit the real leaders that they are trying silence. Hell is one is silent on the issues then they may as well be dead also. I refuse to be silent.
So John if you want to help the cause, please just report the necessary and leave the unnecessary out and just continue the conversation among those whose sole mission is discredit Rev. Andre Knight a citizen first, minister 2nd, Rocky Mount Councilman 3rd and President of the Rocky Mount NAACP 4th.
Andre Knight, a Rocky Mount councilman who also is the head of the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People chapter, made a speech and prayer as the group stopped at the corner of Park Avenue and Highland Avenue.
Dressed as a minister with a white collar, Knight said the focus of the debate on gun violence needs to shift to the root of the problem.
He repeatedly led the crowd into chants of “No justice. No peace.”
