I find it very interesting how you Madame Chair Mary P. Wells responded to Lindell John Kay Rocky Mount Telegram Reporter about my appointment to this HRC, especially when I addressed this HRC and asked did you have a problem with me serving via the NAACP. I was appointed by the NAACP and I thought that everything was okay. I have served as the Vice Chair of N.E.E.D. Inc. via the NAACP. I was also served as the designee for the Edgecombe County Commissioners.
I didn’t respond to Lindell Kay because I didn’t appoint myself and all of his questions should have been directed to the Rocky Mount City Council. Madame Chair you should have directed Lindell Kay to the Council as well since you had nor have any input on who are appointed to the HRC if I am correct. Yes you can question anything but to question who the council appoints is not your place but that is just my opinion.
Madame Chair you have been knowing me for many, many years. I used to pay for your dry cleaning services. I used to video your Democratic Party Annual Gathering driving from my home to Nashville at no charge. I used to attend many of your other Democratic Party meetings. I was the chair of the Edgecombe County Democratic Party during some of that time, however I was the 3rd, 2nd or 1st Vice Chair during some of that time.
Madame Chair during a recent meeting you brought up about you seen on Facebook where a friend of yours needed a ride from Greenville Vidant Hospital to Tarboro to pick up her vehicle so she could eat, change clothes and then go back to Greenville to be with her husband. You commended me and said that is what we should be doing as people. I said I know folk were saying this black guy going to Greenville to pick up a white female he got to be crazy. I picked her up and stopped her in Greenville to a hot dog place, took her to Tarboro and then I went back home.
I intentionally did not participate in the table discussions during the Confederate Monument meetings, but just sit at a table and listened to the conversation. I think I took notes once or twice for the table, I know I did 1 time. I didn’t participate, but observed. When I did say something I did it after the table was done and we had some extra time. I seen some of the HRC members get all up in the conversations and to me their opinions played a major role of how the folk responded to the prepared questions by the HRC.
I know that when I speak, many times folk respond to my opinion on something versus thinking for themselves so I try to let others voice their opinions before I voice mines.
I have responded to some things that Steve Stevenson said in atleast 2 HRC meetings and I feel he has a problem with me challenging him especially during the last meeting when the conversation about the Hispanics attending todays meeting. I felt he was getting to something of a legality issue that we would not be dealing with when we listen to them.
I have responded to Steve on social media when he made a comment about me. I have been blocked from Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens pages where he has constantly posted things about me knowing I couldn’t see it. He was right though someone will make sure I see it. But then when I respond to him and others, I become that bad guy for standing up for myself and when I respond to lies they tell on others.
Well I stopped by to tell this group that I will not allow anyone to disrespect me and try to paint a negative picture of me. I will respond. I am not the average black male that allow white, black, brown and other folk to disrespect them in any kind of way and I not address them.
Lastly, I will continue to serve on the HRC in a professional manner as I have done up until today because when I am in meetings, I don’t play and be about the business that I am here to do. It does not matter how the Rocky Mount City Council address the issue of my appointment. I have been the talk of the town about my appointment serving on the HRC. I will continue to attend these meetings and video them if I am on the HRC or if I come as The DCN News Blog Online TV. I will make comments during Public Comments which I am going to make a motion to be added to the agenda.
