I do what I do out of pocket attending meetings videoing and taking photos making them public for folk who do not attend for whatever reason. It takes funds to do what I do.

I video a variety of things from meetings, banquets, sporting events, funerals and other. I post my videos on YouTube where you can access them at anytime that is convenient for you.

I also take photos and post them on my Facebook page and make them available for others to see. If someone do not have a Facebook page they can still view the photos.

It takes funds to travel places and then it takes funds for equipment.

Open Letter To Greg Higgs, But Greg Why Don’t You Tell Folk Why Your Candidate Is The Better Candidate Instead Of Focusing On Who I Am Supporting

The following was shared with me. But Greg I couldn’t respond like I wanted to and when I wanted to on yesterday because I was at my cousin’s funeral videoing and taking photos. Somebody will pass this on to you. Matter of fact just talked to your dad this morning something I do on the regular. So glad you and Roosevelt don’t rub off on the whole family.

But Greg I didn’t mention Greg Higgs in my post, Mayor Bobbie Jones Is The Best Candidate For Mayor of Princeville NC And The Videos Validates Whybecause I don’t need your validation nor anyone when I say what I mean and mean what I say.

But Greg 1st you put my video out there talking about support Yolanda Thigpen and I asked him to tell us why his candidate was the best candidate and he could not say. He told me to talk about Mayor Jones. I had posted that if anyone wanted to respond to respond with some sense because one ain’t gonna use my video to attempt to twist what actually went on. My videos don’t lie but I am not going to allow ignant asses to use my video for their own self aggrandizement. Look that up in Webster or ask somebody. I would tell you what it means but since you like to follow me, then follow that. 

But Greg ignant you have no clue about what goes on in the NAACP because you are not a member and never have been. So I don’t know who where you got that from. What the hell do you mean by down in members because a branch got to have a certain amount of members to be legit. This is the problem today the branch went to hell under her leadership and folk wanted to know what happened and where the books were.

But Greg when Bobbie Jones decided not to run again he stepped down and I could have moved up since we only had one vice president and that was me. I said I wanted some one young to take over so we could draw some folk in. It was never my intentions to keep my membership in Tarboro because I was going back to Rocky Mount just moved my membership to help get Tarboro branch back going. And when I moved my membership back I still attended all of the meetings until both Tarboro and Rocky Mount began meeting on the same day. So ignant you have no clue of what you are talking about. You talking to an ACTIVE Life Fully Paid Member of the NAACP so don’t even go there.

But Greg you definitely have no clue about politics and listen to your ignant ass uncle when it comes to politics and he has mislead folk over the years but not me because I have challenged him over the years and called that ass out.

But Greg damn ignant all you picked out of my comments as I responded to her comments in the video is the NAACP. She didn’t elaborate on what she did in the video if you looked at the video ignant. She just mentioned the NAACP. But Greg, I responded to everything she said and I challenge her on everything she said. Anyone in their right mind after reading this ignant ass mess if they looked at the video they would see why you got nothing to say but trying to make it about me.

But Greg so in the future brother support your candidate and don’t worry about the candidates I support. I win some and I lose some however I have won more than I have lost unlike you and Roosevelt be on the losing team when it comes to going against the candidates that I support so ya’ll attempt to go after me instead of saying why your candidate is the better candidate. But you can’t do that because Uncle Roosevelt can’t help you on this one.

But Greg I tried to teach you something but I see uncle Roosevelt got you messed up.

“I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!”

Federal Court Appoints for Special Master in Racial Gerrymander Case, As Requested by NC NAACP

Federal Court Appoints for Special Master in Racial Gerrymander Case,
As Requested by NC NAACP

Durham – Earlier this month, NC NAACP requested that the federal three-judge panel overseeing the remedy for the General Assembly’s egregious 2011 racial gerrymander of legislative districts in Covington v. North Carolina appoint an independent special master to assist the court in ensuring fair maps to govern state legislative elections in 2018.  Today, the panel announced its intent to appoint a special master and identified Stanford Law School Professor Nathaniel Persily as the likely appointee. 

Newly elected NC NAACP President Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman, said, “NC NAACP has made it clear that we will not rest until we ensure that the voices of the people who have been directly affected by this egregious discrimination are fully present in the courtrooms, in the streets, and at the ballot box! For years, our organization and the movement we serve has stood for the right of all people in NC to participate in free and fair elections. We are pleased that the Court intends to appoint a special master to provide necessary, unbiased guidance, and cure the racially discriminatory maps created by the extremist-controlled legislature.”

In the order released today, the panel expressed concern that the remedial maps proposed by the General Assembly last month “either fail to remedy the identified constitutional violation or are otherwise legally unacceptable.”  In the amicus brief filed with the Court earlier this month, the NC NAACP argued that the General Assembly’s remedial maps remained tainted with race discrimination and did not pass constitutional muster. Read the Amicus Brief we filed with the Court.

“The people of North Carolina have now voted under unconstitutional and illegally-drawn election maps for more than half a decade,” said Dr. Spearman.  “The legislature has shamefully spent more than $4 million defending these unconstitutional maps, while cutting that amount from the textbook and supplies budget of our schools.  When given an opportunity to remedy its racial gerrymander, the leadership of the General Assembly squandered it.  Now the Court must appoint a special master do the very task we elect and pay our legislators to do– draw maps that are unbiased, non-discriminatory, and create a democracy of the People, by the People, and for the People.”

 

 

Edgecombe County Democrats Deserve More Didn’t Get Crucial Information From The Former Chair Nor Do We Get Anything From The New Chair

Damn shame!

But the chair always talking about they have spoken with a certain Senator but hell they live in Rocky Mount and several State Representatives are over there. Hell he ought to be on somebody’s email list when this stuff goes down and ready to share with county Democrats.

The President of the NAACP sent out an email however I received it from several sources.

The Watch Dog response: Thank you Anita Earls and all of the folk who have made this happen.
GREENSBORO, N.C. – A federal three-judge panel has appointed a “special master” to “assist the Court in evaluating” the districts that Plaintiffs explained either failed to cure the racial gerrymandering the court unanimously found in 2016 or violate the state constitution.  The Special Master will also help in “developing an appropriate plan remedying any problem with” districts in the plan adopted by the North Carolina General Assembly in August 2017 that the court may find inappropriate as a remedy. The remedial redistricting process took place after the same three-judge panel found 28 districts to be unconstitutional racial gerrymanders in 2016.

The order announces the court’s intention to appoint Professor Nathaniel Persily, a professor at the Stanford School of Law, as the special master to review the redistricting proposal.  The full court order can be read at http://bit.ly/SpecialMaster.

Anita Earls, Executive Director of the Southern Coalition for Social Justice and lead attorney for plaintiffs in the case, issued the following statement after receiving the court’s order: (Southern Coalition For Social Justice)

HERMAN CAIN FINALLY SAID WHAT EVERYONE HAS BEEN TOO AFRAID TO SAY! – Viral Feed Us

The Watch Dog response: I agree I am not a Slave! But as a black man and an effective community activist I can multi-task and work on tearing down statues and calling out ignant ass safe black folk. I will continue to work on tearing down statues and issues in the black community but not limited to as I have done since the late 80’s. Folk tickle the hell out of me saying ignant mess as if we can’t work on more than one issue at a time.

Former Presidential Candidate and CEO Herman Cain addressed his fellow African-Americans and advised them to stop wasting time on statues and instead focus on solving today’s real problems.

Here’s what he wrote:

“[…] I AM AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN. I HATE THE INSTITUTION OF SLAVERY AS MUCH AS BISHOP DUKES DOES. BUT I HAVE NOTICED SOMETHING HE SEEMS TO HAVE MISSED. I AM NOT A SLAVE! AND NEITHER IS HE.
SLAVERY WAS AN AWFUL HISTORICAL INJUSTICE, AND IT HELPED SET IN MOTION MANY OF THE PROBLEMS THE BLACK COMMUNITY FACES TODAY. BUT IT IS NOT THE PROBLEM WE NEED TO SOLVE TODAY. THOSE PROBLEMS ARE POVERTY, ILLITERACY, DRUGS, CRIME AND VIOLENCE.
TEARING DOWN STATUES DOESN’T SOLVE ANY OF THOSE PROBLEMS, AND SOLVING THOSE PROBLEMS IS WHAT WE NEED TO BE FOCUSED ON. (Viralfeedus)
