I totally agree with what he said, “Blackwell went on to state he believes this faction of organized white opposition in Rocky Mount leads public attacks against key organizations and people advocating for community, economic and social justice.”
Downtown redevelopment and anti-gentrification has been under siege and some have been trying to block and stop progress on the Edgecombe County side and especially downtown.
I agree the Telegram dating back to December 2018 there has been articles almost daily about the Rocky Mount City Council because it is a 4-3 Black majority. There has been articles almost daily about the Black City Manager, Police and Fire Chief.
The Special Cs have a formed and used Facebook as a campaign to promote a WSBS Movement.
WHIG-TV Sandra Smith President has been known for their racist shows for many years. They talk about Black leaders and then do not allow Black folk to call in but they are about unity and about what is right. GTHOH!
I found the following to be too ignant: WHIG President Sandra Smith told the Telegram on Tuesday that, “I will say we don’t generally respond to untrue comments of this nature.” She is correct because when folk try to call in to the show. The Morning Show and the John Check show are racist as hell.
Now the following is just too ignant: “The administrator of the Fighting Crime News Facebook page told the Telegram in an email on Tuesday that, “It’s unfortunate that there are a handful of people that would consider a journey such as mine, which is to fight crime, help law enforcement and keep the citizens informed, a group to divide people.” Kat has some from within law enforcement agencies who report stuff to her and she post about it before the actual entity such as the Sheriff Office report on it and/or do a Press Release. She always try to post it be the 1st and then get mess wrong and the main thing is post without knowing if all the family members of a victim has been notified. I have called her on some things and she has had to retract her post and repost them with the correct information and even with the correct law enforcement agency.
So how is Katherine Kat fighting crime? The page do not just talk about Crime but also post negative mess about Rocky Mount Black City Council and Black Community Leaders.
Kat said, “The administrator said, “We are all in this together.” In what together?
The administrator stated a belief that, “What matters is making Rocky Mount a safe place to live, work and visit. I want to encourage others not to bring race into the issues in Rocky Mount. All that does is create more issues. We all have the same goal, to have a safe and prosperous community. It’s important to work together to achieve that goal.”
But Kat is always posting about Politics even telling folk who to vote for. She have even created polls asking folk to vote for candidates on her page and try to use that to sway folk to vote for her candidate. What does that have to do with Fighting Crime?
But Kat allow folk to say mess that is not true and do not remove it but when someone challenge the lie they are blocked and/or kept from being able to comment.
Fighting Crime allow certain folk to post but she posts about folk and when folk challenge her she blocks them from posting. This page creates division among Black Folk and try to justify she is not racist because she has mixed children.
LoveRockyMount founder Warren Daughtridge told the Telegram in an email on Tuesday that, considering the mission of his Facebook group is to bridge divides, build connections, listen, learn and understand one another for the betterment of the community, “I am sure you can understand why I was shocked to hear Cooper Blackwell call us out as white supremacists.
Now all of that is just b.s. Warren said he founded the page when he began attending the Rocky Mount City Council meeting and listening to Samuel Battle come and make Public Comments every month attacking Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell. Sam would always say he just got out of jail. Sam would always make comments during the meetings and Andre and Reuben will check him with their response to his comments when the present the facts to his lies. Warren had said the group was not political but finally spoke up at Council meeting and confirmed it was political.
The following is a lie coming from Warren because he does respond on social media but this is what he had to say to the Telegram, “I would normally ignore such an ignorant statement, but his charge is so far off base and so wrong I must stand up to it,” Daughtridge said. “It is so contrary to our mission. I challenge him or anyone else to find one thing this group has done to deserve that title. We will be a name associated not with bigotry, racism or supremacy of any type, but with love for one another in the most basic way just like we did when we were children.” B.S.!
Barry Rehm, who is a co-administrator of the Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens Facebook page, told the Telegram in an email on Tuesday that the group has more than 4,300 diverse members represented by different ethnicities.
Wow just because the group has 4k friends hell he don’t know them and these folk ain’t saying they support the group, many like myself before getting blocked was only there to hold their racist asses in check. Hell I have almost 5k members on my page and I don’t know them all and hell not all of them don’t agree with me.
Rehm said the focus for years has been concerns about how the City Council has acted in direct conflict with a majority of citizens. What in the hell kind of statement is that? That has not facts to support his claims only opinions.
Rehm said that recently, with the elections, the page has been busy with the back and forth in connection with all of the contested municipal races. What in the hell does that mean?
He said that, regrettably, there have been a few commentators from both extremes who made racially insensitive remarks. Hell yeah he is correct because he is one who says racial mess. He allow racial mess and do not remove the lies but remove the comments and block those who challenges their racist asses.
He said the page’s administrators both have quite busy lives, meaning comments cannot be monitored 24/7. If they can’t manage the page then they don’t need a page. What a damn lie. I manage my page daily by myself and I work a real job so he is lying. They are on the page every day. And what tickles me is hell he and the other administrator gets notifications when folk post on the page.
He said that because the page is public, the administrators have elected to let members post without prior approval, but that posts will be deleted when complaints are found to have merit.
So how in the hell do you not have time to manage the page but then come back and say, “but that posts will be deleted when complaints are found to have merit.” You can go on that page at anytime and see how racist mess is allowed.
“It is a public forum,” he said, “and the admins stand behind the service to the community and roundly refute Cooper Blackwell’s obvious bias toward citizens’ concerns.”
Well I be damn Barry’s statement right here is so damn hypocritical because what he accuses Cooper of is what the page was designed to do. This page is the designated official page for the WSBS Movement.
Cooper Blackwell yep Councilman’s Reuben Blackwell son is just saying what I and others who have visited the page have been saying long before Cooper came on the scene. A little research by visiting these pages and to look at others pages to see what they are saying about the pages that Cooper called out. He is RIGHT ON!
I have been calling out these racist pages over the years and I have been attacked because I talk to Andre Knight, Reuben Blackwell, Bronson Williams, Black Leadership, because I am 2nd Vice President of the Rocky Mount NAACP, because I am The Political Agitator and more.
Thank you Cooper Blackwell for calling out these groups who are promoting the WSBS Movement.
