This Year I Held Back Some Things When Some Folk Came After Me But No More

As hard as it is to believe yes I held back some things when folk came after me and one case was the SouthWest Edgecombe Graduation Drama.

Yep I held back because in situations like that you learn where folk mindset is at and what I learned was folk don’t give a damn about the truth but about protecting friendships when I know they had no damn clue about what was going on. Some were mad because of personal experiences they said they had with the principal but you see I don’t give a damn about what kind of experience you may have with someone, that don’t make everything they do wrong. What that does is make folk feel some type of way about you.

I didn’t even know the principal like that and if I did it would not have made any difference. I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.

I did know the family involved and learned a hell of lot more during the drama because my resources and new resources that sent me information kept me point on.

I videoed the graduation and my video was being used across the nation. A video that I did and didn’t get paid to do it during the graduation nor during the times it was used by other media outlets.

Back to the graduation, my videos don’t lie. My resources didn’t lie. I knew what the hell I was talking about so what I did say I was point on and stood behind everything I said.

This is a warning to all folk who want to come after me in the future. I do my homework so when I say something I know what the hell I am talking about. So you will not attempt to discredit me and/or disrespect me. You can call me out on my wrong if you can prove what you are saying but no assumptions and other b.s. that does not make you right will be tolerated.

I didn’t Unfriend anyone because that is not what I do however I am in the Unfriending business now. But if you have a problem with me then go ahead and Unfriend me now and save me some time.

Now in my closing what you need to remember after reading this is, “I am for justice no matter who it is for or against! I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Why Smart People Take Social Security at 62 – YahooFinance

Many of us daydream about retiring early — and then assume that we can’t. It’s true that if you’re way behind in saving up for retirement, you may have to toil far longer than you’d like. But early retirement is more possible for many people than they think, and Social Security can be a big help toward that end.

Here’s a look at why you might want to start collecting Social Security at age 62.

Talking retirement ages

The Social Security Administration assigns each of us a “full” retirement age at which we can start collecting our full benefits. For those born in 1937 or earlier, it’s 65, for those born in 1960 or later, it’s 67, and for those born between 1937 and 1960, it’s somewhere in between. (YahooFinance)

MLK’s Mother Was Brutally Assassinated Too, But Here’s Why Many Don’t Know About It – Old Time Music

It’s been 43 years since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s beautiful mother, Alberta Williams King, was assassinated, yet the murder of the mother of a man largely responsible for changing America, still goes unnoticed. There are several reasons for that, which we’ll get to in a minute, but first, here are the details of what happened to Mrs. King…

Details Of Mrs. Alberta King’s Murder

On June 30, 1974, Alberta King was killed at 69 years young. It was a Sunday and she was at their infamous Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga., which was pastored by her husband, Rev. Martin Luther King Sr.. Mrs. King was the church’s organist and that day she was excited about playing the new organ they’d just gotten. About 500 people were in attendance for Sunday’s service and the short man, wearing a tan suit and thick glasses, went unnoticed as he walked in and blended with the congregation. King Sr. wasn’t at the church that day. As Mrs. King began playing “The Lord’s Prayer” on their new organ, the congregation bowed their heads in prayer. That’s when Marcus Wayne Chenault, Jr. struck.
