Over the years I have seen folk being recognized and honored for what they have supposedly done. But I have questioned why many folk were recognized when I already knew that these folk were recognized just because they were friends and/or just because of the titles they held.
But my problem is many of these folk have stood for nothing.
If you have been recognized for achievements are your name in the minutes speaking out against injustice in local government, school board meetings and other? Are you in the videos?
I have seen many folk who have spoken out who have not been recognized because they don’t hold titles but put their lives on the line fighting injustices.
As we approach the Dr. MLK Holiday I am going to see who are recognized in Edgecombe and surrounding counties because I know folk in these areas.
I am sick and tired of folk who have not and will not speak up but get the recognition while the real fighters are not recognized.
This year I am going to recognize folk who are real fighters in my opinion based on what I know about them. I been around so I know who have done what when it comes to fighting locally however I know many across the state who are fighters as well.
