For Those Who Don’t Know Who I Am And For Those Who Do Please Read This

The following is my bio from my blog. I need to add some more and I will add it at some point in time but for now this is enough. Love me or hate me it does not matter but do remember that I am going to tell my story and will not give my story for anyone to tell it for me because they can’t do it like I can.

Curmilus Dancy II A lifelong North Carolinian

Curmilus Dancy, II was born in Edgecombe County to Curmilus Dancy, Sr. and the late Dorothy Gray Horne Dancy on December 25, 1962. He began to work at age 5 on the farm and he continued to work on the farm while working other jobs up until 1996. His mother and father’s love for helping people has rubbed off on him as he reaches out to lend a helping hand to the grassroots people on a daily basis.

Curmilus graduated in 1981 from SouthWest Edgecombe High School in Pinetops, North Carolina. He has been employed at Honeywell Aerospace Company (formerly Allied Signal and Bendix) of Rocky Mount North Carolina since 1987. He assembles and test fuel controls for the military that are installed on the F-14, F-15 and F-16 fighter jets.

Curmilus is the founder and President of Dancy’s Professional Services where he specializes in barbecuing and video taping. He makes his own special barbecue sauce that his mother taught him how to make and his father taught him how to cook pigs, chickens and other meats on the grill. His best friend Otis Cornel Barnes sold him a video camera back in the early 90’s and Curmilus videoed everything he attended. People liked his tapes and they told him he should start selling copies of his work. Curmilus only cook for family now because of his busy schedule. Curmilus only video on a personal note capturing history in Edgecombe County and surrounding areas to add to his archives.

Curmilus is a strong advocate for justice in the workplace. On one occasion he stood up by himself after seeing a picture in a company newsletter showing the human relation manager presenting a rebel flag to his retiring manager saying a gift from Rocky Mount. After arriving to work on the evening shift, he left work early that evening after another technician showed him the newsletter. He met with some Reverends and Black Workers For Justice to discuss this issue. They held a news conference on the following day. The manager was dismissed shortly after because of the pressure and publicity in the newspapers and on the tv stations.

Curmilus is also a strong advocate for justice as he is vocal in the community and in the school system. In 1993 he was involved in helping the students at SouthWest Edgecombe High School resolve a walkout that they performed. During this time some parents and Curmilus started Partners in Education (P.I.E.) to try to get black males to volunteer some time in the school system to be a role model to the students. Shortly after Curmilus was invited to the CORNFIELD by the principal of the school because he didn’t want Curmilus volunteering in the school. The principal said Curmilus was a racist. The local NAACP where Curmilus was the 1st Vice President had called for the principal’s resignation but to later meet behind Curmilus back and sided with the principal.

After (P.I.E.) was kicked out of the school, Curmilus and his wife co-founded (P.I.E.C.E.) People Interested in Enhancing Our Children’s Education in January 1999. P.I.E.C.E. hosted several meetings in the past and most recently held political meetings (meet the candidates) in 2002 trying to educate the people on politics because very little was being done to reach the people.

Curmilus played a major role in the appointment of the first black Sheriff of Edgecombe County in 1996, the Honorable James Knight who is serving his 3rd term. He was also instrumental in helping Senator John Edwards (wm) and Governor Mike Easley (wm) to get elected in 1998 and 2000. In 1998 Curmilus played a role in the Daily Southerner firing Frank Taylor, editor as he responded back and forth to his articles concerning the Democratic Party and a lot of folks stopped buying their newspapers.

Curmilus is a former member of the Bynum Farm Road Community Club and he was very instrumental in the flood recovery process after the 1999 flood of the century that devastated the Bynum Farm Road Community with major losses and 6 deaths. He rode around the county and sometimes out of the county attending meetings gathering information dealing with the flood recovery. A TV station out of Durham NC followed him home to do an interview for the 11:00 PM news after a flood meeting that was held at G.W. Carver School in Pinetops. Curmilus fought against a white group which included Piggly Wiggly owner who started a housing development on the same road out of the flood zone. The group had some crazy restrictions and he made sure that the group changed the restrictions before the people agreed to purchase the land.

Curmilus served as former vice chair of Rocky Mount Nash Edgecombe Economic Development Corporation (NEED Inc.) board of directors until he was kicked off by an Edgecombe County Commissioner that he represented. The treasurer William Hobbs a retired IRS Agent was also kicked off the board by the Nash County Commissioner that he represented because Dancy and Hobbs were trying to run the program as a business and cut out the unprofessional activities that were taking place. The chair and 2 other board members quit when they left also.

Curmilus is the former vice president of the Edgecombe County Branch NAACP #5390 (Adult Life Subscribing Member) where he was also the acting education chair and a member of the legal redress committee. He received the District 11 NC NAACP Humanitarian Award on February 22, 2002 for his commitment, dedication and not being afraid to speak out on issues. He chose not to hold a position in the November 2002 elections because he would be focusing on politics and he does not want anything or anyone holding him down.

Curmilus has been very active in the school PTO over the years serving as assistant secretary and vice president at G.W. Carver Elementary School. In 2001 he was instrumental in making sure that G.W. Carver replaced the retiring principal with a certified person and not the non-certified white female that they were going to put in place. He is a former member of the School Improvement Team at South Edgecombe Middle School where his daughter India is a 7th grade honor student. Some of the staff at the school felt intimidated by Curmilus because he challenged them during the meetings and always holding them accountable for their actions. Curmilus has requested that 2 schools staff receive diversity training because of some issues. The Central Office agreed and the training was held in 2003.’ Because of Curmilus’ knowledge of the education system, a former principal of South Edgecombe called the local Sheriff Department to have him removed from the campus at a School PTO Report Card Pick Up night because he asked questions during the election of the PTO officers and during a visit to one of his daughter’s classrooms where he questioned the teacher about a math question. The principal was later removed from this school.

Curmilus has received certificates of graduation for participating in the yearly (PESP) Parent Education Studies Program through the NC Justice and Community Development Center Education Leadership Institute at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill NC on June 14, 2002 and again on May 30, 2003 at the Holiday Inn Gateway Center in Rocky Mount NC.

Curmilus is the former vice chair of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party. He resigned his post in August 2002 after many years of trying to educate the people of Edgecombe County about politics. The black community always talked about electing good qualified people to represent them and then came Patricia Ferguson of Bertie County who was a candidate for Senate District 3. The Edgecombe Nash Political Caucus (formerly the Edgecombe Nash Black Political Caucus), some of the local Democratic Party players and some of the black ministers supported the white candidate. Ferguson was not only qualified but a very knowledgeable and powerful black female. Curmilus played a major role in the 2002 election of Jean Farmer-Butterfield who was elected to serve as the NC House 24 District Representative for some of Edgecombe and some of Wilson Counties.

In July 2003 Curmilus played a major role in the dispute of the Dr. MLK Statue controversy in Rocky Mount NC where a statue was placed in the King Park and the people were outraged that the statue did not resemble Dr. King.

Curmilus helped Rev. Andre Knight President of the Rocky Mount Branch of the NAACP to put together a meeting to have some dialogue about the image of Dr. King that was placed in the park. Out of this meeting and a visit to the Rocky Mount City Council meeting, a committee was formed to try to have the statue facial appearance redone to meet the consensus of all those who was in the majority for change. Because of Curmilus’ role in the statue controversy, Erik Blome of Figurative Art Studio in Chicago Illinois, the creator of the statue felt compelled to call him to discuss the issue on a personal note.

In October and November 2003 Curmilus played a major role in the election of Rev. Andre Knight as he was elected to serve as the Ward 1 Representative for the Rocky Mount City Council.

Curmilus worked hard trying to get Reuben Blackwell current Rocky Mount City Council Representative elected as the 1st black mayor of Rocky Mount but Blackwell was defeated by the 30 year incumbent. Out of these 2 campaigns the formation of organizing a grassroots organization that will kick off it’s presence in February 2004. This group is ready to stand up and make a difference in the Rocky Mount City, Edgecombe/Nash Counties.

Curmilus is a former member of the Edgecombe County Workfirst Extension Hearings Committee and Common Ground (Race Relations) Study Committee based in Rocky Mount. Curmilus launched his own talk show “You Can Make A Difference If You Get Involved” (UCANMAKADIF) on April 2, 2003 that was every Wednesday evening from 4:00 ““ 5:00 PM where he was taking the “tough love” approach. He had fresh new approach because he was not afraid of breaking the rules. When he say breaking the rules, he does not mean breaking the law. The rules that he is talking about are certain individuals or a group of people who want to be in control and don’t want others to get involved.

Some people do not want us to deal with the local war. The local war is about economics, race, education, discrimination, liberation, reparation and all those dirty words to some folks. Due to financial reasons Curmilus had to stop the show but he looks forward to going back on the air.

In January 2004 Curmilus was the recipient of the 2003 Entrepreneur of the Year Award during the 14th Annual Commemorative Banquet honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. sponsored by the Edgecombe County Entrepreneurs Organization. In April 2004 Curmilus was the recipient of the President’s Award at the 31st Annual NAACP Rocky Mount, NC Branch Freedom Fund Banquet.

Curmilus has taken Rev. Andre Knight, President of the branch under his wings by being a friend, a brother and a personal consultant. Curmilus was recently elected as 2nd Vice President of the Rocky Mount Branch NAACP and is the Acting Education Chair as well.

In October 2005 Curmilus was appointed as the NC State NAACP Press and Publicity Chairman.

Curmilus consolidated P.I.E.C.E. and UCANMAKADIF under one umbrella. He is now founder and president of Dancy Communications Network (The DCN Newsletter) where he is “making an impact in the thinking of the people throughout eastern North Carolina via the internet, newsletter, public forums, radio and video.” He now has a blog that anyone can read and post comments to the information posted.

Curmilus tells people all the time that he has been kicked off or resigned from more boards than some have been a part of. When Curmilus feels he has spent enough time trying to suggest change and comes to a dead end, then he feels it is time to move on.

Curmilus has written many editorials to the Rocky Mount Telegram, Tarboro Daily Southerner, Greenville Reflector, Wilson Daily Times and several (Black Owned) newspapers the Raleigh Carolinian, Wilmington Journal and had my own column in the Community Journal Newspaper Pitt County. Curmilus also call in to other talk shows in Edgecombe County, Nash County and Wake County weekly to voice his concerns. You can count on

Curmilus speaking out on issues while others are afraid to do so publicly. Curmilus has a daily e-newsletter through his weblog sending information across the nation via internet. He also managed the NC State NAACP weblog for 2 years along with serving as the Press and Publicity Chair. The 2 blogs kept Curmilus very, very busy as he continuously tries to get information to the people as soon as possible while working a full-time job.

Curmilus has sacrificed much in order to try to educate the community by spending his own money and donating countless hours over the years. He recognizes and understand that the system works when you work the system, so therefore he is a resource not only to the black community but to other communities as well. He makes himself available 24 hours a day.

Curmilus Dancy II resides in Pinetops with his wife and they have 3 children.

Did You Know That Government Documents Exists That Advocate Putting All Black Americans in Concentration Camps? – Melanoid Nation

For years, there have been certain government documents floating around that suggested the mass interment of Black people in America. Documents such as the King Alfred Plan have  long been dismissed by government officials as works of fiction because it cannot be traced back to a specific author or origin.

But recently a new document was discovered.

A thesis written by President Ronald Reagan’s FEMA director Louis Giuffrada at the US Army War College in 1970, entitled “National Survival-Racial Imperative” goes into elaborate details about the logistics of rounding up Black Americans to be placed in concentration camps. (Source: Read more)

Miles from Ferguson, another black teen killed by police

The Political Agitator response: I am for justice no matter who it is for or against. I do not base every incident on the Michael Brown or previous shootings by the police. I look for the evidence to prove what happened and then go from there. All I know is that something needs to be done in every town across the USA to have some real dialogue on what is going on so that we can move past this stuff.

Just five miles from the site where Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri, another young, black teen was shot and killed by police late Tuesday night.

Demonstrations and angry clashes between police and protesters erupted overnight as the community reacted to another death of a young, black teen at the hands of police. The St. Louis County Police confirmed the death, saying the teen had pulled a gun on an officer from the city of Berkeley and that “fearing for his life” he had “fired several shots.” According to police, a handgun was recovered at the scene.

Berkeley is just two miles from Ferguson; this is the third police shooting death of a young black teen in less than six months. A second teen, also armed, was shot and killed in the Shaw neighborhood of St. Louis by an off-duty police officer in October. The latest shooting comes just as many have called on the anti-police brutality protests to halt in the wake of the deaths of two New York City police officers who were killed by a man allegedly outraged by the deaths of Brown and others. (Source: Read more)

Robinson: In shootings of NYC police officers, fingers pointed wrongly – News & Observer

The Political Agitator response:Black Lives Matter And Hell Yeah Cop Lives Matter Too But Let’s Get To The Root Of Why We Are Having These Discussions

WASHINGTON — It is absurd to have to say this, but New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, activist Al Sharpton and President Obama are in no way responsible for the coldblooded assassination of two police officers in Brooklyn on Saturday. Nor do the tens of thousands of Americans who have demonstrated against police brutality in recent weeks bear any measure of blame.

A disturbed career criminal named Ismaaiyl Brinsley committed this unspeakable atrocity by himself, amid a spree of insane mayhem: Earlier in the day, he shot and critically wounded a woman he had been seeing; later, on a subway platform, he shot and killed himself.

Brinsley’s reported claim to be acting in some warped sense of revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner was delusional and illegitimate. Reasonable people understand this, of course. But we live in unreasonable times. (Source: Read more)

Off duty, black cops in New York feel threat from fellow police – Yahoo News

The Political Agitator response: I just posted this earlier as it relates to policemen Black Lives Matter And Hell Yeah Cop Lives Matter Too But Let’s Get To The Root Of Why We Are Having These Discussions

NEW YORK (Reuters) – From the dingy donut shops of Manhattan to the cloistered police watering holes in Brooklyn, a number of black NYPD officers say they have experienced the same racial profiling that cost Eric Garner his life.

Garner, a 43-year-old black man suspected of illegally peddling loose cigarettes, died in July after a white officer put him in a chokehold. His death, and that of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, has sparked a slew of nationwide protests against police tactics. On Saturday, those tensions escalated after a black gunman, who wrote of avenging the black deaths on social media, shot dead two New York policemen.  (Source: Read more)

Black Folks Are Not Animals

Every time black folks do something bad or good they have got to associate them with something negative to attempt to justify why the black person is somewhat not human but must be an animal like. Why is it that we as black folks past actions are held against us forever no matter how much we may have changed but other folks past actions, they have been forgiven. Why is it that when a black person does something negative that all black folks are held accountable for that person or group actions? I don’t support criminal activity be it done by black, brown, white and other. I have a problem with black on black crime and anything negative in the black community but if you let other folks tell it, they act as if I don’t care and other black leaders don’t care. Not so! We talk about it all and I have been doing so since the late 80’s along with others. So for those of you who have a problem with individuals and/ or groups in the black community who are being called out such as Rev. Andre Knight, Reuben Blackwell, myself and the NAACP to name a few, obviously you don’t know us on a personal note nor do you know the mission of the NAACP. We do not condone the actions of Ismaaiyl Brinsley that murdered his girlfriend and 2 NYPD Police officers and others whom have made some bad choices.

TARBORO, N.C. – As a result of a year long undercover drug investigation called operation “Checking Our List,” the Tarboro Police Department and Edgecombe County Sheriff’s office announced they had arrested hundreds of people buying, selling, and transporting illegal drugs.

In all, 10 agencies helped with the round up in Edgecombe County.  

Deputies say they served more than 100 warrants and seized more than 40 doses of heroin, as well as cocaine and marijuana. Law enforcement officials say the drugs taken off the street are worth more than $1 million.

Damon Williams, Tarboro Police Chief, says this all adds up to a safer community.

“Drugs, gangs, weapons all go together,” Williams said. “So we’ve made an impact in that entire area within the entire county.” (Source: Read more)

Black Lives Matter And Hell Yeah Cop Lives Matter Too But Let’s Get To The Root Of Why We Are Having These Discussions

My question is as it relates to folks whom want to make it appear that the majority of the people are against cops. I find that to be too ignant! I strongly feel that out of all the conversations I have read and heard, that one thing that is not being said is, is there a problem within the police department among the behavior of the white, brown, black and other officers. I don’t see the conversation really being about being anti-cop but all about how some cops have made it bad for all just like some blacks who commit black on black crime have made it bad for all blacks.

So I strongly feel that the discussions such as cops lives matter and black lives matter, until everyone be straightforward and get to the root of why we are having this discussion then nothing will change.

I support black lives matter and cops lives matter because I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.

Now as it relates to cops, the problem is this is not new to me because over the years there have been some issues within the police departments whereby even fellow cops were killed by another cop because of the ignant behavior within departments across the USA. It is not new to me how police departments across the USA have bullied certain folks so now the police department across the nation is in the spotlight.

So just saying cops lives matter ain’t going to fix the problem without getting to the root of the problem and addressing it.

To think that black folks are against police departments across the nation when there are black polices is just too ignant. But what kind of discussion would we be having if it was black polices who are in the news daily where they have beat up and/or killed whites when it seemed that the situation didn’t have to end up where the white person needed to be beat or killed?

This is just my ignant opinion but I challenge anyone to show me where there is not any validity to what I have stated.

Now Run & Tell That!

Feds Deny NYPD Cop Killer Had Ties To Black Guerilla Family Prison Gang – HuffPost

We do not condone the actions of Ismaaiyl Brinsley and others who have made some bad choices.

Two New York City police officers were shot dead “execution style” in Brooklyn on Saturday. Not much is known about the gunman, who was identified by officials as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, except that he was a suspected gang member from Baltimore who allegedly posted on social media that he wanted revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, two black men that died at the hands of police.

According to the New York Daily News, Brinsley, who was pronounced dead, had ties to the ‘”Black Guerilla Family” prison gang, which is also known as “Black Family” or the “Black Vanguard.” The gang was formed in 1966 by Black Panther member George Jackson at the San Quentin State Prison in California, and soon grew into a multi-million dollar business with chapters stretching from Los Angeles to Kansas City and Detroit.

Some parents and students Nash Central High School educated the masses about the photo on Instagram that appeared to be similar to KKK activity and how children have been disciplined as it relates to the 6 girls photo however the 7th person who took the photo remains unknown. It was stated that one of the children parents is a school nurse and another girl’s dad is a State Highway Patrol.

Rocky Mount NC – NAACP Leadership Be It Local Or Statewide The Presidents Carry Out The Mission Of The NAACP As They Are Elected To Do By The Members

Rocky Mount Branch NAACP President Rev. Andre Knight and NC State President/National Board Member Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II  were elected by the members on the local and state levels does a great job speaking out on behalf of the NAACP members in Rocky Mount and across the state of North Carolina. However there are countless others whom are not a member of NAACP whom support the mission because they recognize and understand that if it was not for the NAACP oh were would be. Now mind you some safe Negroes have forgot from whence they came and what their forefathers experienced but they are where they are today whether they are ignant to just how powerful and effective the NAACP is and has been since 1809.

For us and I am speaking for those whom allow me to speak for them and for those whom I have heard say it, the whole mess ain’t all about free speech but how the situation has been handled or not handled from a school system perspective as it relates to them following their own policies and procedures. We just want to make sure that the school system is following their own policies and procedures by distributing disciplinary actions fairly as it relates to all children. So for anyone be they black, brown, white and other whom are not concerned about disciplinary actions being distributed fairly, then they too have some serious issues just like these 6 girls and whomever the 7th person is that took the photo.

The NAACP is following our mission and that is what we will continue to do so for those whom are trying to paint a picture otherwise, so be it. But just because some folks want us to go away for addressing issues that fall within our mission, well either get with the program or get over it because we ain’t goings nowhere.

What tickles the hell out of me is how some folks will go after the President of the NAACP Rev. Andre Knight Rocky Mount Branch and Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II State President but ignant to the fact that they represent their membership. So what part of that picture do anyone not understand?

For those who are not familiar with the mission of the NAACP and want to say what the NAACP ought to be doing and that we are troublemakers, well continue to be ignant to what the NAACP is but I stop by to tell you that we are the baddest, the boldest, most feared and the most talked about organization and we are going to continue to fight for equality for all people. Every battle that the NAACP win, all people win so you need to remember that.
