Pinetops NC: Sources Say More Charges Have Been Filed Against Edgecombe County Teacher And That Atleast 2 Staff Members Were Fired

You know I video ballgames and I am around young students at SouthWest 2 to 3 times a week. Leaving the game on Wednesday as I was traveling back from Bertie County I got the message about the report that 28 year old Andrew Joyner Harrell of Fountain is charged with Indecent Liberties with a Student and Felony Disseminate Obscenity.

After hearing some students talk about the issue over the past couple of days, some of the things they were saying obviously is adding up since it has been reported that 2 staff members have been fired. It has been reported that Harrell’s office was cleaned out. I said if they got a photo on his phone that is enough proof for him to be gone.

Sources say Harrel was arrested again on yesterday and bond was around $200,00 and that atleast 2 staff members have been fired.

25 years ago today, the New York Times ran its first profile of Barack Obama – VOX

The Political Agitator response: Now for all of the haters who act as if “Our” President just came on the scene 2 terms ago well here you have. He was elected President in another capacity also. The following was relevant then and damn sure is relevant today, ”The fact that I’ve been elected shows a lot of progress,” he told the Times.  ”It’s encouraging.”  But, he added, “it’s important that stories like mine aren’t used to say that everything is O.K. for blacks. You have to remember that for every one of me, there are hundreds or thousands of black students with at least equal talent who don’t get a chance.”

Twenty-five years ago today, the New York Times ran its first profile of Barack Obama.

On February 6, 1990, it announced (in a headline that’s now pretty dated), “First Black Elected to Head Harvard’s Law Review,” and explained that the 28-year-old’s new role was considered the “highest student position” at the school.

Of course, no one was using the term back them, but Obama went out of his way to make clear that his election shouldn’t be interpreted as ushering in a post-racial era on the law review staff or in the country. (Source: Read more)
