I knew Mr. Perry through the school system over the years and we would talk over the years after he retired when we run into each other. I didn’t know Mrs. Perry that well. I was in total shock to learn of this sad situation.

Rocky Mount NC – Senator Angela Bryant Response To Complaint Filed Against Her By The African American Caucus Of The NC Democratic Party



From  Sen. Angela Bryant

Fliers were distributed by the Committee to Elect Sen. Angela Bryant, in error, without the required “paid for” legend and the statement that the sample ballot was not produced by Board of Elections.  As soon as this was brought to my attention, I contacted the Board of Elections and took the actions that they recommended.  As soon as possible, the error was corrected with stickers, and then new fliers were printed with all of the correct information required by the statutes.  At all times, the sample ballot being complained about was on the reverse side of information clearly identified with the Bryant Campaign, e.g. “Keep/Re-elect Sen. Angela Bryant”.  The handouts were solely paid for by the Elect Bryant Committee.  Newspaper ads clarifying this information were run in the counties affected as required by the State Board of Elections and they have not required any further action on my part at this time.

How Angela Addressed The Complaint



In Response To Pastor JR Harris In Regards To The Nash Central Teen That Killed Herself

I seen your post about the NAACP, Black Lives Matter, Prayer Vigils, Marches and Protest in response to the female student killing herself.

First of all I want to tell you that I am a Life Fully Paid Member of the NAACP and has been a member of the NAACP since 1992. I abide by the Mission Statement and obviously you are not a member and do not know the Mission. I will not hold it against you.

I have been fighting for black folk since the late 80’s so I know the struggle. I am not ignant to what is going on around me. However what most folk are ignant to that when the NAACP fight to make life better for black folk all folk benefit.

I had 2 tee shirts and 2 sweat shirts made a year ago in Raleigh with Black Lives Matter on the Front and I Can’t Breathe on the back vise versa on each. I am not a part of the Black Lives Group, however I realized back in the 80’s Black Lives Matter when I had to find where the local NAACP was because I wanted to join to be a voice for black folk and not because I was in trouble. Most folk join when they are in trouble.

I have attended, been a part of setting up prayer vigils, marchers and protests. However I have posted over the past several years that I am not interested in either of the above at the moment, been there done that. One reason is because some of the very folk who attend know what is going on, who the ones are that committed the crimes and then I have been told some of them who have committed the crimes where at the prayer vigil, marches and protest. So what is the purpose of having them if they ain’t going to tell who did it. By the way these were Black On Black Crimes. This is why other folk white folk think they can boldly say black folk ain’t concerned unless it is a white person killing a black person. The devil is a liar.

I was saddened to hear that the girl killed herself. This sir is not a NAACP issue.

I want to stress that I receive calls from all over the world about issues and I explain to them what is an NAACP issue and what is not. I also try to help them to the best of my ability as to giving them some direction on how to move forward with their concern.

What I found most interesting though is you as a Pastor you didn’t send the Clarion call out to the churches. Hell that is where the people are at on Sundays, NAACP meetings are once a month.

Sir it is my opinion the churches need to take the lead on black on black crime, white on black crime and any and everything that goes on in our community that awareness need to be raised. The NAACP members, the folk who believe Black Lives Matter and others are in the church.

Please my brother let’s tell the whole story and don’t mislead folk to who should be doing what. Actually it boils down to what all of us can do as individuals. I don’t even want to get into what I do as Team Me.

Thank you for the dialogue.

How Many More Times Do I Have To Keep Reminding Folk Especially Church Folk Who I Am?

I was shocked a couple of days ago when some folk sent someone to me because they had an issue with me. All of these folk know me and I know them. I am a 53 year old strong ignant black man and I say what I mean and mean what I say. I don’t say anything that I will not repeat again. If I have something to say about someone or an entity I make sure they know what I said by sending them an open letter.

I understand that some folk have a problem with me accusing me of saying something that I can’t recall. All I am asking is to tell me what you are accusing me of state the facts.

I blog and what I write automatically goes to my Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts so you gonna see it or someone will tell you before you see it. If I know they are not on Social Media then I make sure it get to them.

Well I asked for a response last night but I haven’t received one. Obviously they need more discussion. Well I am ready to respond.

What I can’t stand is men who have small balls. I don’t fool with men like that because they will get you hurt or killed.

Well maybe I will hear from them soon.

I am Curmilus Dancy II and you know me by Butch. I have been doing what I do since the late 80’s so I didn’t just start holding folk and organizations accountable for their actions. I stand behind what I say and if I need to apologize or to make necessary corrections I will do so. However I do my homework to attempt to leave room for no error.

And I close by saying, “I am for truth no matter who it is for or against. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!”

NC state senator’s campaign fliers violated law, board says – News & Observer

The Watch Dog reported the following, Breaking News – A complaint and request for investigation was lodged against NC Democrat Senator Angela Bryant for wrongful non-compliance of SBOE regulation violations on yesterday. I will respond to this later today.

The State Board of Elections took action against state Sen. Angela Bryant, D-Nash, over fliers distributed by her campaign during the early voting period before Tuesday’s primaries, a board official said Thursday.

After an inquiry, the board identified legal issues with the fliers and required Bryant to sign a “Statement of Understanding” March 8, acknowledging that she understood the relevant laws about election materials.

The board also required Bryant to take out an ad in The Wilson Times. The ad, headlined “Paid for by the Committee to Elect Angela Bryant,” said fliers were distributed by the committee “in error” and said the issue had been corrected.

The fliers included the words “Keep Senator Angela Bryant” and information about her. They also showed an image of a ballot with ovals colored in for certain candidates, including Bryant. (Source: Read more)

Breaking News – A complaint and request for investigation was lodged against NC Democrat Senator Angela Bryant for wrongful non-compliance of SBOE regulation violations



A complaint and request for investigation was lodged against NC Democrat Senator Angela Bryant for wrongful non-compliance of SBOE regulation violations, and the complaint also alleged possible illegal acts of conduct in violation of NC voter and election Laws.

The African American Caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party (AACNCDP) filed their complaint based on the acts and conduct of Senator Bryant having created, published and distributed a false/fraudulent document resembling an Official Ballot containing various preselected 2016 candidates targeting African American registered voters in Halifax, Nash and Wilson Counties.

The “complaint and request for investigation” also alleged “Senator Bryant, with the intent and purpose to confuse, discourage, influence (via false endorsements) to suppress the African American votes for the unselected candidates.”

The complainant believes sufficient evidence was submitted as an Exhibit document to cast doubt on the election outcome in Halifax, Nash and Wilson Counties election and/or statewide elections regarding candidates identified on the Ballot published and distributed to the voters, especially the African-American voters which was targeted in the three counties…

The complaint had an attached exhibit document that was alleged to have been distributed….

FOR MORE INFO. PLEASE CONTACT: Jannet Barnes, AAC-NCDP President; Marcus W. Williams candidate for NC Attorney General; James Milles, former Mayor of Halifax County; Chris Rey, Mayor of Spring Lake NC; Ken Spaulding, candidate for Governor; Franklin D. Williams, candidate for 27th District State Representative.

Tarboro NC – Tarboro Town Council Meeting Last Night Was Gooood! Town Manager Asked To Resign But Failed. Mayor Quit But Not Soon Enough.

First of all I hate that the videos of the meeting are not completely up on my Youtube page. I loaded it last night before I left the meeting but 33 minutes of the coverage of the drama at the beginning of the 1st part of the meeting is at 42% upload. If the had WI-FI that I could have connected to it may would be completed. This video coverage I did from my phone in HD however the entire coverage will be from my video camera which is not (HD) High Definition. I have it uploaded as well and that may be why it is taking so long for now.

Wow! What a meeting! Garland Shepheard made a motion for the Town Manager to resign and Steve Burnette 2nd the motion. Motion failed 5 – 2. At the end of the meeting Burnette apologized for his ignance. Smart man and I respect that.

Town Manager Rick Page resigned but should have done it way before now. He has been a follower of Shepheard since being on the board. Now the best thing Shepheard could have done would have been to step down along with Page. But as usual the Trump continued to come out of him until the very end of the meeting. Damn embarrassment to the Town of Tarboro.

The presentation about the Radio system for the town of Tarboro was the hot topic and the folk “learned the day” yesterday that all of the mess that Van Holland from The Edgecombe Tribune has been reporting was a bunch of ignance. However he along with Shepheard keep saying they got the facts. Facts for what? Obviously they are ignant to the truth in denial or just don’t give a damn because the facts came out in the presentation. Van told me after the meeting that he had some documents in his hand if I wanted to see them. I told him I didn’t want to see them. For what?

I will post the videos as soon as they are ready because my videos don’t lie.

Ignant Black Folk When It Comes To Politics

Listening to Rev. Al Sharpton this morning and it never seems to amaze me how ignant black folk make comments but can’t back up what they say.

One ignant said black folk ought not vote for any Democrats. Ignant crazy because Rev. Al asked him who we gonna vote for because we don’t have but 2 Democrats running for President? Ignant said he didn’t know. Wrong answer. Although you may not like all about the Democratic candidates, it is the Democratic agenda for me. There is nothing in that other party agenda that I like.

One ignant talked about President Obama being a black man bailed out banks but didn’t give any of the money to black folks. Rev. Al said damn the white boys wouldn’t even vote on anything to help their parents so what make him think they were going to help black folk.

Folk vote for either Democratic candidate for President that you like the best however which ever one wins the Primary let’s unite in the General Election and re-elect a Democrat for President.

Expenses In Trying To Offer Services Out Of Pocket

Around 2 weeks ago I decided I was going to learn how to upload videos to Youtube because loading them up on Livestream people could not see them on a cell phone or a tablet.

I attended Dr. Elbert Lee Homegoing Service and I videoed Councilman/NAACP President Andre Knight and Senator Angela Bryant and Congressman G.K. Butterfield remarks. I loaded them up on Youtube and since that time I have loaded up around a total of 25 videos. What I like about this new thing is once a program/event or etc. is over I can begin the upload process right then. But what I learned on yesterday is when I checked my data on my phone I had 18 GB and I had used 31 so I have had to add 40 GB to my data plan which is going to take my data plan to $200 plus to complete the Month of March which I have 9 more days to go. This means I will wait until I get home to load videos or if I be somewhere else that has Wi-Fi.

I just recently asked for donations to help with purchasing a new camcorder and then to learn that I have created another big trying to make my services more convenient for other folks so they can see videos on my phone. However I must admit doing videos on my phone is less work. For now using the camcorder on my cell phone is in HD (High Definition) so quality of the picture is great. My camcorders that I have now are not HD so when loading videos from them the quality of the picture is not good.

As the present time I have received $415.00 and the camcorder cost is $719.00 without tax and etc. I stand by my word that I will not cash or spend any of the money until I have received enough to purchase the camcorder.

Now going back to expenses this is not counting gas, wear and tear on my vehicle and etc.

I do what I do because I love to educate folk on what is going in Edgecombe County but not limited to. This is good for folk who live here but also for folk who have moved away and can keep up with what is going on here at home.

When my son graduates in June I plan to become more active covering Edgecombe County but not limited to.

So in my closing just pray that the Lord uses me however he see fit.

Thanking you in advance and know that I love you and it ain’t nothing you can do about it. That is why I do what I do.

Donations For Camcorder Are Coming In

imageClick on photo to see specs and the cost of the camcorder.

$415.00 Total Received. I have received 5 checks from the amount of $25.00 – $150.00 and a $100.00 bill. Two checks came from out of state.

I am to stop by a friend’s house possibly today or tomorrow and he has a donation for me. Another friend has pledged a nice donation so I am hoping to be able to order the camcorder in the next 10 – 15 days.

I am overjoyed by the love shown.

Will not cash until I am ready to purchase.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
