Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and the state members would not have been in town if they had not been invited by the family. The State NAACP do not go into towns without being invited to do so by local chapter and the families/individuals whom seek their support.
I find the entire article to be quite interesting however I find the following to be very interesting:
“Tomorrow’s show of intimidation cloaked under the guise of honoring the family and memory of Lacy will go on as planned, and we again hope it goes off without a negative hitch. But we wonder when this country will finally move past the existence of such a divisive group that openly stirs the very racism it claims to be trying to stop.
And finally, we hope young Lennon Lacy will be allowed to rest in peace soon.”
Intimidation? So why be intimidated if ya’ll have all the answers since you say that you are certain the investigation shows that there is no need for more investigations.
Who are “We” when you say, “But we wonder when this country will finally move past the existence of such a divisive group that openly stirs the very racism it claims to be trying to stop.”
First of all the NAACP does not stir racism. It is just that some folks like you have a problem when black folks question white folks, the system and/or etc.
The NAACP works through their mission and if you had read their mission statement before you wrote this mess you would not make yourself look so ignant.
When was the last time a white man was hung in Bladenboro and/or any town in NC?
The issue for me is that the people of Bladenboro who questions this incident need to be able to rest in peace here on earth as well. How can they rest when they have questions about a black male being hung when anyone in their right mind knows it ain’t normal for black folks to hang themselves nor being hung by another black person.
