Warren Daughtridge Says The LoveRockyMount Group Is A Group of Over 1,000 Diverse People Aligned To Get To Know Each Other And Do Good For Others


The Political Agitator’s response: I was in meetings and didn’t leave Rocky Mount until around 10:30 PM last night so I will respond more in depth to this either tonight or tomorrow. Stay tuned! What tickles me is some folk feel they can say things about other folk ie: Rocky Mount City Council, Black leadership and all things Black but when you challenger them they have a problem with the challenger and/or attempt to threaten them.

Mr Dancy I have said this to Johnny and to you and have to say it again. LoveRockyMount was not in charge of the beach trip. Johnny and a group called Young Renovators was. Donations were made out to them or to ReGroup1. I respectfully request that you refrain from associating LoveRockyMount with donations. We were not the organization that managed that program. We were the forum on which a conversation started from which the project was born. We don’t request it accept donations. We don’t have an account into which they would be deposited. We aren’t even a legal entity, yet. You may have a problem with me personally but I am NOT LoveRockyMount. I organized it but it is a group of over 1,000 diverse people, aligned to get to know each other and do good for others.

A group is no more than I have 4999 diverse followers so your point? You said you would respond but came back and said it was none of my business. I will pull the entire post to re-read what you said

Warren Daughtridge

I’m not trying to compare your group of friends to mine. I am just stating that LoveRockyMount is a group of people and not an individual. It didn’t do a bus trip. People that happen to be members of the group helped in the bus trip.

Please let me know to which post I did not respond. I thought I responded to each of them. I will be happy to address as I can.

THU 3:44 PM

Also, I wanted you to know. I tried very hard to explain everything Johnny wanted to know about the car wash. It wasn’t my event, he knows that, but Roger asked me to try to sort things out and mend things with him, so I did. I couldn’t make any headway with him so I offered to pay for an independent counselor, a professional mediator to meet with the two sides to iron things out. That did not go over well. He adamantly refused. The offer still stands btw… Mr. Dancy, I care about our community. I truly hurt for the impoverished of all races. My wife and I both, are caring people and, though flawed, try hard to be good examples and do the right thing. I apologized when I hurt you with my careless words. I hope you will consider this when writing about me and my group in the future.

I didn’t say you were compared it I just stated a fact. LoveRockyMount is you you accepted friends in the name of LoveRockyMount no different. FACT! The post is on my page so I ain’t going there. But I will respond to this when I get to my laptop. I understood what you said in your 1st inbox and I will address it further. I am not Johnny Cunningham nor is he me.

Warren Daughtridge

I know all that Mr. Dancy (ps I sure would appreciate knowing what you go by? It is Butch? May I use that?) I do accept members to the group but I can only monitor whay they say on the group page. I can’t control what they say outside the group. Heck, I don’t even know most of them. I seriously want to know what I didn’t answer. I committed to try and commit to do so to the best of my ability.

Curmilus

I manage my page. I am not going to allow folk to lie on you if I know it is a lie although you have a problem with me, my style per say. That is the problem I have with you simply because you have a problem with me. I don’t know you and I respond to what you say when it comes to me and Black Folk.

Warren Daughtridge

We are probably going to have issues with individual viewpoints until Christ returns. Until then, I I tend to TRY to treat people with respect and assume they are decent human beings.

Curmilus

Likewise!

The following post right here answers many questions I had for Warren Daughtridge that was in the Rocky Mount Telegram:

Warren D. said the group was not Political and I said it was founded after he came to City Council meetings and went in the attack mode. But Warren D. this is what I read, “The car wash is set for 2-6 p.m. at Prid­gen Tire on Sun­set Av­enue hosted by Love Rocky Mount, the heart and brain child of busi­ness ex­ec­u­tive War­ren Daugh­tridge. He said his new pur­pose in life is heal­ing the city of the re­cent po­lit­i­cal strife and un­der­ly­ing racism with a goal of bring­ing city res­i­dents to­gether.”

Attorney Ralph Steve Stevenson had a damn problem with Johnny Cunningham questioning the money that was directed to him and his address: Any­one who wants to help but can­not make the car wash event can make checks payable to S&P Law c/​o Re­group 1 and mail them to S&P Law, PO Box 981, Rocky Mount, NC 27802. Cash and checks also can be dropped off at S&P Law Firm at 874 Coun­try Club Road in Rocky Mount.

So Steve did you account for all of the funds?

Who was the treasurer? Just asking since all of a sudden Johnny Cunningham is a crazy man but that was as long as he was blinded by y’all motive. Johnny’s motive was good then and still good now, to help the Impoverish!

Car wash to fund beach trip – Rocky Mount Telegram

Johnny Cunningham and I have united and put our past differences behind us.

The Political Agitator’s response: I get so sick and tired of folk trying to use black children to accomplish their mission when it comes to RACE. I sit back and watch who fall for it. These same folk attend the Rocky Mount City Council meetings, get on WHIG-TV, Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens, Community Council, 252 Hoodnewz and other social media sites and talk about the children’s leadership. I am not ignant to what is going on. Warren Daughtridge sent me a friend request some time ago but then unfriended me because I called him out about his message at the Rocky Mount Council meeting. Johnny Cunningham so what makes him and who made him a prominent local contractor? This dude is always talking about me on the sites that have me blocked. Folk be sending me screenshots of the filthy hardcore language he be posting along with the lies. So them kind of black folk is used to attempt to create division in Rocky Mount.

It is a re­al­ity for some Rocky Mount chil­dren — a re­al­ity that is about to change as res­i­dents come to­gether on Satur­day to hold a free car wash with do­na­tions go­ing to­ward help­ing less for­tu­nate chil­dren take their first trip to see the ocean and en­joy all that a day at the beach has to of­fer.

Imag­ine hav­ing never been to the beach, never play­ing in the sand and surf.

It is a re­al­ity for some Rocky Mount chil­dren — a re­al­ity that is about to change as res­i­dents come to­gether on Satur­day to hold a free car wash with do­na­tions go­ing to­ward help­ing less for­tu­nate chil­dren take their first trip to see the ocean and en­joy all that a day at the beach has to of­fer.

The car wash is set for 2-6 p.m. at Prid­gen Tire on Sun­set Av­enue hosted by Love Rocky Mount, the heart and brain child of busi­ness ex­ec­u­tive War­ren Daugh­tridge. He said his new pur­pose in life is heal­ing the city of the re­cent po­lit­i­cal strife and un­der­ly­ing racism with a goal of bring­ing city res­i­dents to­gether.

Love Rocky Mount is new, but it means busi­ness, said Johnny Cun­ning­ham, a prom­i­nent lo­cal con­trac­tor and founder of ReGroup 1, a char­ity or­ga­ni­za­tion that works to re­hab and re­store old run­down homes in low-in­come com­mu­ni­ties and cre­ate jobs for young men that in most cases have crim­i­nal records.

Cun­ning­ham said he went to the first Love Rocky Mount meet­ing in mid-March at Rocky Mount Mills and was amazed how peo­ple wanted to do some­thing pos­i­tive in the com­mu­nity.

Cun­ning­ham men­tioned in a con­ver­sa­tion on the group’s Face­book page that there were chil­dren in Rocky Mount who never had been to the beach.

“We have kids that have never felt hot sand be­tween their toes and salt wa­ter splash­ing on them,” Cun­ning­ham said.

In three days, 300 peo­ple joined in the on­line con­ver­sa­tion in how to get Rocky Mount chil­dren to the beach.

A com­mit­tee quickly formed and now 40-plus chil­dren are set to take a char­ter bus in June to Fort Ma­con near At­lantic Beach.

“This is all first-class all the way,” Cun­ning­ham said. “It’s an ed­u­ca­tional trip where these kids will get ex­po­sure to more than the world right around them. I re­mem­ber when the schools were in­te­grated and I was bused 40 min­utes away. My neigh­bor­hood was work­ing class. Every­one worked. Here I was rolling through neigh­bor­hoods with man­i­cured lawns and three-story brick houses. I saw that there’s more out there. It made me want to work to achieve my goals.

“That’s what the car wash is about,” he said. “It’s rais­ing money, but it’s about these kids earn­ing a seat on that bus to the beach. It’s sweat eq­uity. And learn­ing to work to­gether.”

Cun­ning­ham said the chil­dren live in the projects and do not of­ten see dif­fer­ent peo­ple work­ing to­gether — and here are peo­ple work­ing to help them go some­where spe­cial.

“Th­ese are fresh new peo­ple,” Cun­ning­ham said. “A who’s who of Rocky Mount tak­ing their time to help these kids get to the beach. Their hearts were tugged when they re­al­ized there were kids right here in Rocky Mount who have never seen the ocean. Th­ese are strangers who could not sit by and let it hap­pen.”

Chef Ja­mais Brown will have food with all pro­ceeds to be do­nated to the beach trip. The Blind Dog at Lowes will do­nate a por­tion of Satur­day pro­ceeds to the trip. The event also has a slew of cor­po­rate spon­sors.

Any­one who wants to help but can­not make the car wash event can make checks payable to S&P Law c/​o Re­group 1 and mail them to S&P Law, PO Box 981, Rocky Mount, NC 27802. Cash and checks also can be dropped off at S&P Law Firm at 874 Coun­try Club Road in Rocky Mount.

Credit card do­na­tions can be made by call­ing S&P at 252-443-2195.

Love Rocky Mount is just get­ting its feet wet with the car wash and beach trip. Back-to-school and other events are be­ing planned.
