Seeking Donations

I look at how black folk do not support each other when it comes to certain causes. We support certain folk Pastor Anniversary, Musicians and other but there are other ministries as well.

Over the years I have given so much of my resources being a voice for the voiceless. I have attended all of the majority board meetings in Edgecombe County over the years speaking up and videoing them so folk could see what was going on inside the meetings.

I have videoed countless funerals over the years and didn’t charge a fee and the majority of the folk didn’t even give me a donation. This was my way of supporting the family by giving them something that they could pass on from generation to generation.

I have videoed many events and church events and didn’t ask for a donation.

Folk don’t understand that I do the event and then go home and have to work on the event. Many times I put the event on YouTube which is very time consuming.

I also take hundreds of photos during the event and the photos tell a story all by themselves.

Today I am seeking donations expeditiously so that I can get back on the ground and start back attending meetings and to cover my expenses.

I look at what folk respond to on the internet so I am going to see how folk respond to this.

Recently when I posted I needed a financial blessing I received only one blessing. It is sad that that person does not live in the local area anymore.

If You Are A Democrat Who Do You Vote For?

If you don’t like the Democratic candidate do you vote for the Unaffiliated candidate or the Republican?

If you don’t agree with all that a Democratic candidate does do you not vote for them? Hell who agree with everyone about everything?

Do you vote for the Unaffiliated candidate because you like their platform because it is close to your Democratic agenda? Well damn if they are running on the Democratic agenda issues then why in the hell don’t they register as a Democrat? Help me to understand!

My problem is and has been is that if there is a candidate at all levels that the majority of the folk don’t like, why not find a candidate to run in the primary to give one another choice. Hell why not run yourself if you ain’t satisfied with the candidates? 




Why Did the Democratic and Republican Parties Switch Platforms? LiveScience

During the 1860s, Republicans, who dominated northern states, orchestrated an ambitious expansion of federal power, helping to fund the transcontinental railroad, the state university system and the settlement of the West by homesteaders, and instating a national currency and protective tariff. Democrats, who dominated the South, opposed these measures. After the Civil War, Republicans passed laws that granted protections for African Americans and advanced social justice; again, Democrats largely opposed these expansions of power.

Sound like an alternate universe? Fast forward to 1936. Democratic president Franklin Roosevelt won reelection that year on the strength of the New Deal, a set of Depression-remedying reforms including regulation of financial institutions, founding of welfare and pension programs, infrastructure development and more. Roosevelt won in a landslide against Republican Alf Landon, who opposed these exercises of federal power. (Read more)

Politics – I Am Still Calling For The Coming To Jesus Meeting

I am talking about political leaders and those whom are engaged.

I understand your post however the Chaos who get to determine what is the chaos? Most people have a following so unless proven sometimes it may seem selfish lust for power when they are actually speaking for themselves and their followers. I just think folk have to be careful when they are trying to get their point across to remove all doubt.

I have talked about putting differences aside from day one when I got involved in community and political activism after seeing how folk had political egos. I have said it countless times over the years that black folk need to call a coming to Jesus meeting and has out our differences and those whom choose to stay in the room then we can move forward. But until everyone are willing to come to the table then we will continue to have the mess we have.

I agree 100% with you, “We must put our differences aside I order to reach the common goal of helping our candidates be ELECTED into the offices on the Ballot.”

However some Candidates problem is they created the division early on and they need to attempt to get it right. They may need to call the coming to Jesus meeting and undo some mess they have done and what they have done publicly can’t be corrected secretly. Can’t have it both ways.

You say, “We need those candidates that are NOT agenda driven, looking for a title besides their name.” Not having an agenda could be dangerous. I was so glad when candidate then Senator Barack Obama folk came to town when he was running for President that he had his own folk on the ground in charge of these local communities. Some had a problem with that but it was good to me because I know how these local folk play games and can be dangerous to other candidates seeking office.

Candidates better have a singular agenda that can include others but keeping in mind that it is up to one’s own to get themselves elected.

I am so glad I know all of the players the candidates, the want to be candidates, those who are engaged in the process and those on the sidelines.

The main thing is we have got to hold each other accountable for our actions. We must be willing to call out folk. We are quick to call out folk who are not local but we allow the locals a pass. This is why the local community is suffering because we allow mess.

I have stressed that anyone who want to be in politics they need to contact me because I have invested much time in politics in Edgecombe/Nash County but not limited to. However I am a registered voter in Edgecombe.

Some folk say who do I think I am? Well they will learn but they can learn even faster if they contact me be they local, surrounding counties and abroad because my resources are awesome.

You see when the candidates reach out to me I tell them what the climate is, where I stand and what I suggest that they do. Oh and that is free.

This is why we need some political agitators but folk hide behind code names, code words and other. I ain’t the one because I am for justice no matter who it is for or against. I am for truth no matter who it is for or against. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest.

Democrats plot strategies for midterms – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Gate Keeper – What is missing in this article?

TARBORO — National, state and local Democrats met to strategize about the upcoming midterm elections on Wednesday in Tarboro.

U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, D-1st District; state Rep. Shelly Willingham, D-Edgecombe; and Edgecombe County Sheriff Clee Atkinson spoke to a small crowd in the auditorium of the county administration building.

Doug Wilson, the party’s deputy executive director, opened the meeting by telling Democrats that the news media may believe Democrats are down and out after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the Democratic base has been energized ever since Donald Trump was elected president in 2016.

State Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin said to be successful in the midterms, the party will have to rely on its women members. (Read more)

School board member resigns – Rocky Mount Telegram

Olga Dickens has resigned from the Edgecombe County Board of Education.

Dickens has been experiencing some long-term health issues that have prevented her from attending school board meetings since February. In a letter this week to board Chairwoman Evelyn Wilson, Dickens expressed her regret for having to make the decision to leave the board.

“First, let me thank you again for your continued support and prayers during my illness,” she stated in the letter. “I thoroughly enjoyed being a member of this board. The thought that the community had enough confidence in me to allow me this opportunity makes it even more regrettable that I find it necessary to resign from my position on the Edgecombe County Public Schools Board of Education effective immediately. If there is any way I can help in any capacity, please know that I will be honored to do so.”

Wilson said school board members are sad to see her go but understand the need for the resignation and respect the spirit of the act. (Read more)

NC Democratic Party State Chair Was In Edgecombe County Wednesday But Were The Democrats Informed?

I am an elected Democratic Party Precinct Chair and I heard about the NC State Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin was coming to town. I was told the chair was calling around saying the state chair wanted to come and meet with the candidates.

There were some conversation on Facebook trying to confirm if the state chair was coming and he confirmed it. However nothing was ever posted on the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Facebook Page but it was posted on Lawrence personal page.

On Saturday morning October 6 around 9:20 am during the end of the Dr. G.L. Knight Show on WCPS in Tarboro Lawrence happened to come on and spoke about the chair coming.

I did not receive a call nor any information via mail from Lawrence about the state chair coming to town, however after later seeing an event that was created on the NC Democratic Party Facebook page about the state chair touring Edgecombe County, I did share it on my social media pages.

I work a real job and it was not a good day for me to take vacation because we have a monthly town hall meeting at work with management that is on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

Today I have received several messages concerning what happened today as it relates to the state chair coming to Edgecombe County. The following is from a concerned Democrat of Edgecombe County.

“I don’t know if you know but there was an Edgecombe Democratic Rally at the Auditorium of the Administrative building. GK Butterfield and the Chair of the National Democratic Party was there. There was no information regarding this event and only a few people were there. I can’t say what I want but hopefully you can. What has happened to our Edgecombe Democratic Party. Yes the Party Chair was there but no other Administration for the Democratic Party for Edgecombe County. Shelly, Clee and some from Martin County that came with Shelly as he was campaigning in Martin county and was just notified today. No commissioners, no school board, no mayor NO ONE!! Can you imagine what Chair for the National Democratic Party thought of Edgecombe County. What’s was shown as we are not fighting bc we don’t get informed.

I just don’t understand what in the hell is going on with the Edgecombe County Democratic Party. Are there other offices being held do we have a Vic Chair, treasurer secretary I mean where were they?? And why didn’t this notification get out?? It should have been packed with over 28,000 plus democrats in Edgecombe County. How is the Chair selected matter of fact how are all the offices for this party elected.”

First of all yes I knew but didn’t receive a phone call nor anything via mail from Lawrence Taylor who was elected chair nearly 2 years ago. I heard that our 1st Congressional District Congressman G.K. Butterfield was present. It was not the National Democratic Party but the State Party.

Lawrence Taylor who was elected nearly 2 years ago has done nothing but been a disaster for the Edgecombe County Democratic Party. I tried to make the party members see where the party was going and no one wanted to deal with the issue so as far as I am concerned we do not have an Edgecombe County Democratic Party. Lawrence and the following make up the county officers that can meet and do things when the county party is not in session. The 1st Vice Chair is Martha Knight Johnson, 2nd Vice Chair Dr. Glenda Knight, 3rd Vice Chair Attorney Jim Marrow has not attended but one meeting since elected, Pastor Yvette Hart resigned her post as Secretary and the Treasurer is Stephanie Hunter. There has been some mess among the county officers so that is probably why they were not there. However I would question if Martha and Stephanie knew about the meeting. They probably didn’t know just like the precinct chairs and other committee members because the last meeting Lawrence had was in June and I understand it didn’t go well.

A rally should be held on a Saturday when most active folk especially black folk who works can attend. This October and most folk have little to no vacation time to plan to get off work and the vacation they have they must use it wisely the rest of the year. On my job we have a monthly town hall meeting with management on the 2nd Wednesday and that is another reason why I chose not to attend the event with the state chair.

I don’t recall seeing anything in the newspaper about the event. Actually Tarboro don’t have a real local newspaper. It was not posted on the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Facebook page matter of a fact nothing has been posted since June and that is in reference to the June meeting. Damn Lawrence has not called a meeting since June but I know why because he was shut down then because he has the party tore up. If you want folk to attend your event you ought to have since enough to contact your supposedly base. Lawrence base should be the other county officers which is the 5 other office positions. But then you have 21 precincts which consist of a chair and a vice chair along with the county elected officials. You advertise and invite all Democrats of Edgecombe County.

I do not think you can plan an event one week before and get a packed house without some hard work to get the folk there during that time of the day.

During the odd years at the Edgecombe County Democratic Party County Conventions the county officers which consist of the chair, 1st vice chair, 2nd vice chair, 3rd vice chair, secretary and treasurer are voted on by the Edgecombe County Executive Committee which consist of the precinct chairs and vice chairs and county elected officials that make up the Edgecombe County Democratic Party. However during the convention all Democrats are invited to attend and some can be delegates to the convention.

In my closing folk keep asking me what need to be done about Edgecombe County Democratic Party and I will repeat it again. Since Lawrence has refused to resign as chair, it only takes 3 signatures to file a petition to remove him. I have told them I will sign and actually I drafted a letter and someone wanted to add something but they never got back with me.

I understand that it is too late to remove Lawrence from his post before the November election but I be damn if we need to wait until the county convention next year in March or April to vote on new folk. We have no party officers as I see it and will challenge anyone who want to challenge me.

Wednesday October 10, 2018 should be a day to remember for all concerned Democrats. I am mad as hell because I have never seen the Edgecombe County Democratic Party operate at this level. We may have had some infighting over the years but we came together at the end of the day.

I am calling all Edgecombe County Democrats to rally around our Edgecombe County Sheriff Clee Atkinson and the Edgecombe County Democratic Women because they are working to educate the citizens of the county.

Anyone who have some concerns that you would like to share with me my number is (252) 314-5484 or you can email me at and any of my social media pages.

Thank you NC State Chair Wayne Goodwin for stopping by Edgecombe County although I was not present but I did advertise the event.
