Presidential candidate Kamala Harris told a crowd of several hundred in Durham on Saturday night that it is time for the country to look itself in the mirror and ask, “Who are we?”
“I think we all know part of the answer to that question is, ‘We are better than this,’” said Harris, who was the keynote speaker at the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People’s 84th Founders’ Day banquet.
The Democrat said the U.S. is in a moment “that requires us to fight.”
A Rocky Mount City Council member more than a month ago called for a report about the status of the municipal water system and the plan apparently is to hear an update at the council’s meeting at 4 p.m. on Monday.
A copy of the council agenda, posted online on Friday, has a 12-page PowerPoint-like image from Water Resources Director Brenton Bent. The image lists information about where the city’s water comes from and how the water is treated, along with assets, milestones and recognitions and an update about projects.
The subject came up at the July 22 council meeting after public comments referring to the July 8 council meeting.
During the July 8 meeting, Rich Worsinger, formerly the city’s utilities director, told the council he believed Rocky Mount is in danger of becoming the next Flint, Mich. Flint was the scene of a water crisis from 2014-16, with residents there being exposed to dangerous levels of lead. (Read More)
Allen Andrews Everyone is not going to agree with what is said when it comes to certain agendas, but my question is for the past few days I have seen on your post where you run others down for their race calling them “special” and “ignorant” including your own race at that. I myself treat everyone the same no matter the reaction or their opinion on any topic mentioned. We are to love others regardless of their ethical beliefs or demeanor in the community. Jesus not only came to this world to open a door for us to be saved, but he also lived among us to show us how to treat others. Why all of the hostility towards others when we have so much more depressing matters in the world today. Focusing on the lives of people and sharing the message of HOPE through Jesus Christ is our main goal so at the time of their death they will spend an eternity in Heaven……

where I run down others for their race calling them “special” and “ignorant” including my own race.
I am not you sir I will not lie that I treat everyone the same because some folk want to be treated special and I do just that.
I have stated time and time again I ain’t mad with nobody.
I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.
I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!
Sir I have treated you with much respect I thought however I will not allow you to come on my page and create a narrative about me without producing the facts. Please respond to the question above.
Have yo been on your Caucasian brothers and sisters page that I call out by name and talk to them about the hate they spew out. I am just responding to their Ignant Racist Mess.
As it relate to Black Folk let the Black folk I call out respond for themselves.
Don’t make it appear that I am calling out all Caucasians and all Black Folk because that is why I say Ignant Racist Special Cs, Ignant Safe Black Folk simply because that means I am talking about certain folk.
What tickles the hell out of me is when folk like you respond as if I am talking to you. Do you feel guilty or what? I am just asking because I don’t think I have directed anything negative to you.
Fact Check Me!
