I am an engaged woke life long black man, I am an active life time Democrat, I am an active life fully paid member of the NAACP and I am not apologetic for who I am and what I stand for.
I stand for justice no matter who it is for or against. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest.
I have been called a lot of things because I speak out.
What I will bet you is that if you get to know me you will learn who I am and that I will stand with you when you are right no matter who you are. Although we may disagree on one thing if we agree on something else I will support that. But when we revisit that we disagreed on until we come to agree on it, we will still hash out that part.
At the end of the day I just want what is right for all folk however keep in mind that I am not ignant to the treatment that black folk have endured and still endure today.
Don’t blame me for what this world is. I had nothing to do with it’s creation but I can do my part while I am passing through.

The Gate Keeper: I totally agree with the author of this post. Damn the whole team ought to protest and see what happens then. Damn shame!
As I have reported in the past, the Cowboys have been very clear behind the scenes with their players that if they protest against racism during the anthem, they will be punished severely.
Jerry Jones has said it, and now Stephen Jones has confirmed it while appearing on Norm and D Invasion on 1310 The Ticket here is a full transcript of what Stephen Jones had to say.
There are a couple of points I’d like to make to what Stephen Jones had to say.
The first one is the NFL, . . . (Read more)
Tickles the hell out of me how folk want to talk about state and national politics but will not deal with mess in their local towns and communities. Don’t want to talk about and deal with local politics then don’t talk to me about a damn thing.
I look at Edgecombe County how folk have allowed Lawrence Taylor Chair Edgecombe County Democratic Party and County Officers along with Rev. Roosevelt Higgs outgoing chair shut the damn party down. This is something that Higgs has tried to do over the years anyway.
But when some others and myself tried to keep the party functioning they talked about me and them as if we were the problem. Damn shame!
Well if you Edgecombe County Democrats like it, I love it because I have been doing what I do since I joined the party in the late 80’s but been a Democrat since the early 80’s. I have done my part and will continue to do what I do through The DCN News Blog Online TV.
