Tarboro NC: Daily Southerner Newspaper Shut Down On Friday May 30, 2014 No More Papers

The Daily Southerner Newspaper last day was yesterday Friday May 30, 2014. This is going to be interesting because there will be a lot of meetings in the Tarboro area, school board, county commissioners and other will now have to be covered by the Rocky Mount Telegram alone. I believe the Southerner did a more thorough reporting on the news in the Tarboro area.

As Article XI, Section 4 of the North Carolina constitution states, "beneficent provision for the poor, the unfortunate, and the orphan is one of the first duties of a civilized and Christian state." Speaker Tillis’ and Senate Leader Berger’s policies have broken with this fundamental principle of governance.


This Monday in Raleigh, we will join together once again to remind them that their moral responsibility to care for the least of these calls upon them to stand up for environmental justice and for health care access for all North Carolinians.

This Is What I Do I Reach Out To Folks Whom I Feel Are Doing Some Good Things, This Is Dating Back To 2005

A moment in history.

Looking back at my old Blogspot page archives and ran across the following. Been blogging since 2005.

Ronald White and Mary Perry are still in contact. I have not been in contact with Joe Bowser for many, many years. White and Perry are good friends of mines and we communicate on the regular.

Ronald White for 4th Vice President NC NAACP State Conference of Branches

by Curmilus Dancy II

A year ago or maybe a little more I had the opportunity to tune into a broadcast NAACP NOW on Channel 17 whereby North Carolina NAACP President White, Ms. Mary Perry, Mr. Joe Bowser and a couple of more Presidents were discussing NAACP related issues. I believe the main topic was about gangs in North Carolina. I was very impressed with many of them and I looked their contact information up on the NAACP website. White had a website with much much information on it and I read over some of the things he was involved in. UPS was a major case that he was working on along with many, many others. I made contact with White. I sent an email to White and he contacted me early that Monday morning after the Sunday’s show as I was on the way to work.

I have found brother White to be true to the cause and about making a difference. This is from what I have seen and the different places I have been in his presence in the short time I have come in contact with him. Because of what I know about White and his dedication to the mission of the NAACP I have no doubt that he will continue to do good works. I trust that others will join me and support White so that he can continue to serve as 4th Vice President of the North Carolina State Conference of Branches during the weekend of October 6 – 8 when the election of officers will take place.

Sure She Set Him Up – William Reed Columnist

Where are you in the stampede to take Donald Sterling’s L.A. Clippers’ team away from him? Is it fair what has been done to Sterling by the NBA? Donald Trump called her “the girlfriend from hell” and says Donald Sterling “got set up by a very, very bad girlfriend.” In a recorded conversation between Sterling and alleged “girlfriend” V. Stiviano, Sterling upbraided Stiviano over being photographed with Magic Johnson. He told her it was OK for her to sleep with African Americans, but not to bring them to Clippers games.

The Los Angeles Clippers are a professional basketball team based in Los Angeles, California that plays in the Pacific Division of the NBA league’s Western Conference. The Clippers play their home games at the Staples Center, an arena shared with the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA, the Sparks of the Women’s National Basketball Association, and the Kings of the National Hockey League.

Is the Clippers’ owner a racist or not? Is the punishment and ridicule being leveled at Sterling fair?  The NBA’s longest-serving owner makes the argument that he shouldn’t be thrown out of the league:  "I’m a good member who made a mistake and I’m apologizing and asking for forgiveness.”

Sadly Blacks have bought the mainstream media ruse as they did in matters regarding the Jeremiah Wright sermon. An irate public and NBA stand at the beginning of what will be a protracted legal and procedural battle that will cost millions. The NBA’s response to Sterling’s racial controversy is a cautionary tale against meting out hasty, summary punishment. Fining and banning Sterling was probably well within the jurisdiction of the NBA. Seeking to force Sterling to sell his team will be costly.

Right now, Sterling is the gift that keeps on giving to mainstream media. Sterling finds himself in a no-win situation and being ridiculed for saying, “African Americans don’t give back to their communities as much as Jewish people do.” The trustworthy old corporate media has found a dead man walking and done a real job on the 81 year old as he consents to interview after interview, to beg for everyone’s forgiveness and try as best he can to show that’s he’s not a racist. It must be “a Jewish thing” mainstream media can’t grasp. Sterling simply says “Jews help each other” and when they become successful, they will help their own. The ultimate point “talking heads” miss is that Jews are generous to each other and Blacks aren’t.” Blacks don’t self-identify and associate culturally as do Jews. Sterling got rich because other Jews helped him when White people did not. As a result, Sterling acquired his wealth in large part due to the support he received from people in his own community. 

Born in 1934, he was 25 when he changed this surname to "Sterling." Starting in 1961, Sterling made his career as a divorce and personal injury attorney by building an independent practice when Jews had few opportunities at prestigious law firms. He ventured into the world of real estate which began when he purchased a 26-unit apartment building in Beverly Hills. Sterling’s worth $1.9 billion.

So, what will the “lynch party” say when the record comes back proving that Sterling’s philanthropy toward those in South L.A. is greater than Johnson’s?  Forbes magazine lists Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Jr.’s worth at $500 million. From the early days, in 1990 when he partnered with Earl Graves to buy the D.C. Pepsi franchise, more often than not, “Magic” has been “the spook at the door” in many White-funded corporations’ “community” and “responsibility” portfolios. Magic Johnson Enterprises often takes an equity stake in projects with: the Loews chain, AMC Magic Johnson Theatres, 31 Burger King restaurants, and 13 Magic Johnson Sport health clubs. Magic Johnson Enterprises is a partial, but nominal, owner in businesses that include the Los Angeles Lakers, T.G.I. Friday’s and Sodexo.

So, what do you think? Is Sterling right? Do wealthy Blacks abandon their own people?
