Happy New Year to everyone. It is good to be alive because it could have been the other way.
We are living in a time where human relations seems to be at an all time low. But I will continue to do what I do being actively engaged in what is going on around me. I will use Social Media to be educated about what is going on around me and I will educate others about what is going on around us.
I don’t play games when it comes to dealing with people lives so in other words I don’t play when it comes to politics and other avenues whereby people are making decisions on behalf of others.
I don’t condone criminal activity be it committed by black folks, white folks, politicians, law enforcement and others.
I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.
So if you don’t like what I have to say on my Blog, Facebook, Twitter and LikednIn accounts then you have options.
Folks in Edgecombe/Nash Counties and across the nation are getting ready to gear up for the Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Holiday attending marches and banquets. You need to know that that is ceremonial so if you want to be about Dr. King’s Dream, then march on down to the school board meetings and other governmental meetings in your county. And then in February go to Raleigh and march with the NAACP and Partners as we host the Moral March on Raleigh & HKonJ People’s Assembly.
I am so sick and tired of folks getting on Social Media talking as if they are doing so damn much but I have seen them do absolutely nothing. But maybe I have when it was something that was personal to them.
It has never been all about me and when I joined the NAACP, the Democratic Party and other organizations over the years, it was because I wanted to be a voice for others who were ignant to what is going on around them and/or afraid to speak up for whatever reason.
So when I say Happy New Year, I really mean it but I can’t be happy when others around me are suffering more than I. So I challenge able body folks to get involved and let’s unite to make our communities a better place to live, work and play. Everyone has a role to play and when we recognize and understand that, then a change will come.
So what are you going to do in this New Year as it relates to dealing with human relations and politics? Well you may say you ain’t getting into politics. Okay fine but know that folks will continue to make decisions on your behalf whether you speak up or get involved or not. I refuse to allow others to do such and I not get involved.
If you don’t think human relations and politics are something that affect us all, then you are out of touch with what is going on around you. If you don’t know you better ask somebody.
