Republicans: “No. But what’s the matter with you and your family, that working two jobs can’t lift you out of poverty? And can’t you keep your kids off the street? Oh, and make sure they’re doing well in school.”

A Business In Tarboro Had A Grand Opening On Saturday April 22, 2018 And A Canon And Confederate Flag Was Used But The CommentsThough

I got a notification from Tarboro 27886 about a loud boom in Tarboro yesterday.

After reading the post on Tarboro 27886 I found the conversation to be quite interesting especially after the owners participated in the conversation and didn’t try to seize the moment but shared their ignant comments but want all folk to patronize them. But then I question are they trying to reach a certain group of white folk.

The boom was connected to a grand opening about selling guns so they seen the need to use a canon and a Confederate Flag. A white female said she felt it was not appropriate to use the Confederate Flag for a business that would be catering to all folk.

A person responded to the white female saying the flag was not about hate and about heritage. I posted that the flag is about hate and some white folk want black folk to get over it but some white folk can’t get over they lost. The owner had the audacity to come on the page and post my name and nothing else. The owner also posted a person’s name and nothing else. This person is always coming after me. So I asked the owner did he have something he wanted to say to me and he said go ahead and fuss because it would help his business with the drama. I said I only posted about the flag and nothing about the business.

The post about the boom went damn crazy and the ignant racist attitudes came alive. The original post was deleted.

The owner started another post and said, “So did anyone hear that Big Bang this morning… ??asking for a friend. …. Coming to town with a bang.” The owner said he was asking for a friend. Really! I made a comment on the page about the flag issue and nothing about the business until I asked the question were they really trying to get all folk to patronize them or just a certain group of white folk. The owner invited me to the business and I asked what did he sell and I never got a response.   

The owner said to me when I asked what was the business, what do they sell and his response was, “Curmilus Butch Dancy II main st. .. . As long as your money is green I don’t care”

I started another post and I said what do that suppose to mean? That should be a topic all by itself. I forgot to add I am asking for me and not for a friend!

I could go on but I am going to end here because you ought to get enough of what is going on.

I have an issue with the comment coming from a business owner especially when they are selling guns and posting photos of themselves in comments as if they are trying to intimidate someone.

I found the conversation to be interesting and questionable coming from the owner who are selling guns and bragging about selling AR-15s specifically since they have been much discussion in recent shootings.

Folk ya’ll better remember names because these folk may act as if they like you but they have hidden agendas.

I just got this notification and I just had to add it to my post.

Sarah Peveler a cannon fusillade to open a new business is very creative. Displaying a Confederate flag on town property is not. I realize that this action was carried out by the re-enactors and not the business but have to wonder how much “permission” was involved. I am grateful for this business and have had a conversation with ….. about the possibility of starting an Edgecombe County Women’s Shooting Club for those of us who like sports shooting. This is not about me as some of you have chosen to make it. I had the same issue last year when a for-profit vendor was selling Confederate flags and souvenirs at Happening on the Common under the the pretext that he was representing the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Again, it’s not OK from my perspective to use town property and a town event to display Confederate flags. This is the only response I choose to make on this topic. (And, yes Jay, thank you for delivering some firewood to me after you took care of others whose needs were greater than mine. I’m also not sure what that has to do with the issue at hand.)

Note: I know one thing I am embarrassed that a photo of the business owner and the Tarboro Police Chief and The Edgecombe County Sheriff took with him and then he is up here carrying on like this. Wow!

Work on Event Center nears completion date – Rocky Mount Telegram

A portion of the event floor was filled with chairs positioned in front of a stage.

It was a large display, as space arranged for those who played a part in the realization of the Rocky Mount Event Center as they spoke on Friday afternoon ahead of a limited tour.

The size of the center is immense, as the large crowd took up just a portion of the space allocated for sports tournaments and concerts on the massive event floor that can hold eight basketball courts and 16 volleyball courts.

Construction of the Event Center is still ongoing, with a completion date set for this fall. On Friday, sections of the large facility were available to walk through. Space for offices could be seen, as well as plans for much more on the upper levels. (Read more)
