Baltimore Maryland: When We Get To The Root Cause Then The Reaction Can And Will Be Understandable!

When we get to the root cause then the reaction can and will be understandable.

Nobody want to talk about the root cause but only the reaction.

When they announce what really happened to Freddie Gray hell I think that the reactions from the angry could be far worse than what we have seen up until now.

Waiting and watching!

You Don’t Know My Story! I Don’t Allow You To See What I Am Going Through Because Somebody Got It Worst Than Me

I have been carrying some heavy burdens for years but you don’t know my story. I have no control over some things and once we recognize and understand that the situation is what it is then nothing else matters. You can’t change certain things and you just have to live with them. I will not allow nothing and no one to allow me to walk around with my head hung down and act as if I am crazy. It is already getting better!

I will allow the Goodmaster to work it all out and until that time it is what it is.

I know that I am not perfect and I know I hurt some folks feelings sometimes but I am who I am and I say what I mean and mean what I say and for that reason I am misunderstood so many times because I don’t say and do what others expect me to say and do. I am not the one!

In Response To My Brother Response In Regards To The Mother Who Disciplined Her Son In Baltimore When He Was In The Ignant Moment Where The Rioting Was Happening

I tried to respond to this while at the car repair shop but didn’t save it.

Click on photo to watch this mother do the right thing!
imageAlot of folks applauded that mother for publicly “attempting” to discipline her son for I guess participating in the looting. But see that’s the problem: (not criticizing her)
1. Where was his father
2. When you discipline your kids privately, they want embarrass you publicly

My response: I will discipline my child publicly and privately. I tell my son all the time that he is gonna get it if he publicly embarass me so until the time comes he is good but if and when he should do it, publicly
I applaud her because I would have done the same thing! You lost me when you say, “she attempted to discipline her son for what you guess participating in the looting.” Well she was successful in getting him out of the area where there was an ignant moment going on and it appeared to me that he was involved since he had his face covered up.

So why should I criticize her for that?

You say where is the father? Why did that matter at that moment? Irrelevant! So if the father had been there, would one ask where was the mother? Irrelevant! The main thang is that the mother was there and did what I would have done be man or woman.

How could one not discipline the child at the time and location where they were acting out? First of all he was trying to hide his face but his mom recognized him and for that it let me know that she knows her child and I commend her for that.

I will discipline my child publicly and privately. I tell my son all the time that he is gonna get it if he publicly embarass me so until the time comes he is good but if and when he should do it, publicly and privately I am going to deal with him.

Point:When Godly fathers take their rightful place and raise there sons the right way, they will understand the difference b/w a protest and looting. Me and my sister were not perfect, and neither was our mother, but we NEVER would think about embarrassing her in public b/c of the discipline she has instilled in us in our home. Sorry my mind is just set up different. #realist #nosugarcoat

My response: I totally agree fathers need to take their rightful place and raise their sons but I want to add and daughters. I tried to take my rightfjul place to help raise my daughter but her mother moved 4 hours away trying to keep me from her. So I take these kinds of conversations very serious and get very emotional on the fact that I have been there done that. Now unfortunately my wife and I have raised our son all of his 16 years so I am in his life. However I recognize and understand that some fathers are not in position to be in their children lives because he chooses not to because he just don’t want to be, because he is married to another woman and in a relationship with another woman and the mother knows it but still chooses to have sex with him knowing that she could possibly get pregnant. The woman don’t want him to be involved because she get ignant. Well the child suffers in all situations but for me it is never the child’s fault but the mother and the father.

I don’t know where this young man’s father is and I don’t care. What I do care about is this mother took it upon herself to do what she did not knowing how he would respond. She was brave because so many children will fight and even kill their parents.

My friend I agree with you on a lot of things but I am not the one who will talk about a person behind their backs when I don’t agree with them and will make it known publicly. We have had a conversation about growing up without a father however I grew up with a father and been out of work almost a month without pay taking care of him since he has been in a car wreck.

I took time off work when my mom was terminally ill and I stayed in the hospital with her every night for nearly 2 months and went to work the next morning. And then when the doctors say that had done all they could do, we had to take her home. We took her to her sister’s house and set up a room for her. I stayed there every night for about 2 months and I went to work the next day until she expired.

So when it comes to family I can relate and I encourage men to be in their children lives and I don’t associate with deadbeat dads unless we are going to talk about what they need to do. However like I said I recognize and understand that some women don’t want the fathers in their children lives, they just want the money. Well I encourage them to pay child support and don’t get caught up in her mess.

Today my daughter has been brain-washed by her mother and step-father because they were successful for keeping me from having a relationship with my daughter. Well I turned it over to the Goodmaster and as long as I know I have done all I can do, it hurts but it is well with my soul.

I could go on but again I applaud, commend, love this woman for doing the right thing at the right time. I will not criticize her for doing what was right. However the only thing anyone that knows me know that I would not be going on the TV talking about it. I would write about it.

My brother again I love you and I know your heart but I can’t agree with you on this one.

Dang wish I had saved it when I tried to respond on my phone because it would have been short, but like I tell folks my video camera, my phone and my laptop is my weapons and my camera and my laptop is more powerful than my phone.

What’s Happening In Baltimore Didn’t Just Start With Freddie Gray – Huffington Post

The Political Agitator response: Any conscious person that is keep up with what is going on shoujd know this.

This week’s chaos on the streets of Baltimore has been decades in the making.

Violence erupted in the city on Monday after days of largely peaceful protests over the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who recently died of injuries he sustained while in police custody. But Gray’s death was just the latest point on a timeline stretching back generations, one that encompasses all manner of racial inequity and human indignity.

On April 6, 1968, just two days after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., riots broke out in Baltimore. When the dust settled on April 7, three people were dead, 70 were injured and more than 100 had been arrested, and numerous buildings were burned and destroyed, according to Baltimore magazine.

The Maryland Crime Investigating Commission Report of the Baltimore Civil Disturbance of April 6 to April 11, 1968 later summed up the event in a few sentences that could have easily been written yesterday: (Source: Read more)

Jesse Williams sums up the outrage to Baltimore’s ‘riots’ in one tweet – The Grio

The Political Agitator response: That is because they consider us as property and not as people so they think they have the right to kill us. Damn shame nothing but modern day slavery! But just my ignant opinion!

Jesse Williams, never change.

The Grey’s Anatomy actor is at it again, posting a series of scathing tweets aimed at the national media’s coverage of the protests in Baltimore. Williams, 33, also isn’t pleased with the sweeping criticism of the mostly young black men who have participated in rioting, looting and or destruction of property.

Monday, the outspoken Williams began posting both thought-provoking questions and bold statements calling for a more critical look at the real issues surrounding the death of Freddie Gray.

Then Williams dropped a gem: (Source: Read more)

President Barack Obama Speak To The Issue In Baltimore Maryland

The Political Agitator response: Damn that was enough said right there! Since the late 80’s since I have seen all races of people not taking a stand for justice and as long as that happens this will continue. I am so glad I will not go down in history not taking a stand for justice locally and nationally because I ain’t afraid.

Black men w/ no criminal record applying for jobs treated same as white men fresh out of prison – DailyKos

The Political Agitator response: All conscious folks ought to know this by seeing it across the nation and it didn’t just begin yesterday.

Even if a black man is never called a nigger in the job application process, racism is alive and well in today’s competitive marketplace. In a powerful editorial for the NY Times, it’s made clear that the deck is stacked firmly against African Americans in ways that are incredibly destructive.

The sociologist Devah Pager, a Harvard professor who has meticulously researched the effect of race on hiring policies, has also shown that stereotypes have a powerful effect on job possibilities. In one widely cited study, she sent carefully selected test applicants with equivalent résumés to apply for low-level jobs with hundreds of employers. Ms. Pager found that criminal convictions for black men seeking employment were virtually impossible to overcome in many contexts, partly because convictions reinforced powerful, longstanding stereotypes.

The Dominant White Response to Baltimore Shows Why Black Residents are Justified in their Anger – Daily Kos

The Political Agitator response: The following from this article says enough: Why do you see destructive rioting and looting? It’s not because people think it’s the best way to get things done. It’s because the people have finally come to realize that no matter what they do, nothing gets done. No matter how loud they scream, the system still crushes them under its weighty wheels. Their macro situation in many ways mirrors their individual situations. These people are expressing not just anger and frustration at another black man killed by another group of police officers. Rather, they’re expressing anger and frustration at a socio-economic reality in which they are the bones and scraps left over after the best meat’s been taken.

Imagine for a moment that man’s neck was almost severed, nearly clean cut in the most painful way possible, while in the custody of the people charged with the duty of protecting and serving. Imagine that man died, alone, in a prison cell, while his cries for help were blatantly ignored. Now imagine that in the wake of that tragedy, a government had been infantile in its ability to explain even the basic details of what happened.

That’s the revolting reality in Baltimore. And through it all, the dominant white response was muted. From different reaches of the Internet, prominent civil rights leaders weighed in on the travesty, offering perspectives on another data point in an ever-growing body of evidence that the police state is still being mobilized against black Americans. And sure, the death of Freddie Gray received some national media attention. (Source: Read more)

Mayor expresses city’s opposition to proposed schools split – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator response: It is a shame to Rocky Mount Telegram do not expose these ignants hiding behind code names. When will these ignants respond sensibly to the articles posted? I have come to their conclusion that their mission is to attempt to divide and conquer but they can’t! So glad there are more folks with sense than these ignants who continue to post just that ignant mess! Some were waiting on a response from the City Council and I feel it is a damn good one! Thank you!

Rocky Mount Mayor David Combs spoke Monday on behalf of the City Council in opposition to the proposed dissolution of Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools along county lines.

“The county line merger would divide Rocky Mount students and would be detrimental to the cohesiveness our community has been building,” he said. “And it would be contrary to the Twin County Visioning and Strategic Plan, which calls for regionalization.” (Source: Read more)

Black on Black Crime Compared to Police on Black Crime

Black on black crime I don’t understand how we can compare with Police on black crime other than since these individuals whom are committing black on black crime are not snitching on each other, the law enforcement is not snitching on each other either. Neither is good! I feel that both goes on almost daily but the law enforcement cases are being caught on camera whereby the black on black crime they are afraid to use their cameras because they fear for their lives at the moment. Just my ignant opinion!

Rioting, Elections, Hope

I look at the root cause to how and why someone respond. Nope don’t make it right but I sympathize with the oppressed.

Elections are another subject for another day for me. Hell elections are like the microwave age, they want justice right now and not have to wait until major elections to bring about a change. What happens while they are waiting for an election?

I condone violence always have and always will however since black folks ain’t in control of much of anything, where is the hope? These folks whom choose violence obviously have no hope. Don’t make it right, but to those whom are willing to pay the price they obviously feel acting out is their road to hope and/or the end! Just my ignant opinion!

Nash Board Seeks Legislation To Divide Schools

The Political Agitator response: Nash County Commissioners don’t want to admit it is about race! It is all about they don’t want to take care of those black children on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount. You see some whites moved to Nash County to get away from black folks but you see some of your black children goes to school on the Nash side so something gots to be done! Do you hear me? Just my ignant opinion.

Nash Board Seeks Legislation To Divide Schools

By LINDELL JOHN KAY

Rocky Mount Telegram Staff Writer,

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

NASHVILLE – In a split vote Monday, the Nash County Board of Commissioners voted to seek legislation to divide Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools along Nash and Edgecombe county lines.

The board voted 4-3 to ask the N.C. General Assembly to introduce a bill that could send as many as 2,000 students who live on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount to Edgecombe County Public Schools.

Commissioner Wayne Outlaw, who made the motion, said he would vote to scrap those plans if the Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners voted to increase its funding to the Nash-Rocky Mount school system.

Voting for the proposal were Outlaw, Robbie Davis, Lisa Barnes and Billy Morgan. Opposing the measure were Chairman Fred Belfield, Mary Wells and Lou Richardson.

All seven board members agreed something had to change in the way the school system was funded.

The N.C. General Assembly combined Nash and Rocky Mount schools into a single school district in 1992.

“I would vote for county line because I voted for county line 30 years ago,” Morgan said prior to Monday’s vote.

Belfield said he wanted to wait and hear what Edgecombe officials decided at their meeting.

Barnes said Nash commissioners had been trying unsuccessfully to talk about the issue with Edgecombe officials since September 2013.

“I cannot walk away from here today without a decision,” Outlaw said in making the motion. “I’ve got to support county line today.”

Davis said he wanted to split the school system, but was willing to work with Edgecombe officials on funding issues.

“It’s unacceptable that Nash County taxpayers keep paying the bill,” Davis said.

Wells, who represents Rocky Mount residents in District 6, said she supported having Edgecombe pay more for schools, but could not vote for a split.

The system’s student body is 87 percent from Nash County and 13 percent from Edgecombe.

Nash commissioners said Edgecombe should fund at least 13 percent of the operational costs and capital expenditures.

Typically, Edgecombe funds about 3 percent with the City of Rocky Mount making annual payments to the school system.

Nash commissioners previously presented three options: Have the General Assembly vote to split the school system along county lines; leave the system as is but remove Rocky Mount from the funding formula and have Edgecombe County agree on equal per-student funding; or not change anything.

When making the presentation Nash commissioners immediately said they could not support the third option.

Nash commissioners voiced disappointment that Edgecombe commissioners did not attend a meeting earlier this month where the options were presented along with information from a 34-page report issued in November of a study conducted by MGT of America on a possible school split.

Outlaw said Edgecombe commissioners could “pay their fair share” or get ready for a county line split.

“We tried to work with them,” Outlaw said after the meeting.

Rioting! I Agree With My Friend Dennis Mitchell Post On His Facebook Page

All you people incorrectly using MLK quote on riots to justify what is happen in Baltimore are wrong, read the entire transcript and importantly the statement before the quote:

“I’m still convinced that nonviolence is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom and justice. I feel that violence will only create more social problems than they will solve. That in a real sense it is impractical for the Negro to even think of mounting a violent revolution in the United States. So I will continue to condemn riots, and continue to say to my brothers and sisters that this is not the way. And continue to affirm that there is another way.” MLK

He understood why they were rioting but he did not support it.

My response:

I strongly feel that all people with a conscious feel the same way as Dr. MLK. I can speak for me. However I will say that who in 2015 would think there would be a war between the police and the people? I don’t condone any type of violence because I know with violence comes consequences and although many have committed crimes to make changes, they paid a price.

I think the Lawd is trying to tell us something! Are we listening? Or are we dreaming?
